What the hell is this thread about? Let me explain that subject. No. Marketing gurus and SEO providers are not intentionally keeping you stuck or struggling. There's a reason why 98% of the links you bought from someone to promote you or rank your website didn't work and this is the exact reason why 1/4 of those people fail and stop their online career. Do you think SEO is some hidden tactic? Do you think it’s some secret SEO Weapon, Service or Software ranking all those average people and helping them bank, almost doing nothing? Do you think it’s hard work? Logic would say yes: The more tactics you know and the harder you work, the more you will succeed. The more SEO Services you buy, the better you will rank. But this is wrong! And this right here is why you are probably stuck or on the fast track to permanent failure. The reason 99% of people fail is 99% of people have this little “failure parasite” in their head that makes all their work pointless and ineffective. It then blinds them from how to hit their goals. Friendly advice: If you are blind and ineffective you could be ordering SEO and Backlinking services for 2 years and still fail, while you have already spend thousands of dollars. Don't just go and order any random SEO service you see! My personal negative experience: This even affected me. This kept me stuck for almost 5 years. I invested all my hardly earned money in SEO software, low quality backlinks, social signals that disappear, views that drop thinking of them they will help my brand succeed. Tips you should follow for a succesful Link Building campaign: If you are struggling to get started. I guarantee this bugger is why. If your businesses hasn’t doubled this last year, this little bugger is why. I have a small advice right here that will fix this, there is no pitch and it will change the next 3-5 years of your online career. I cannot stress. This failure parasite will make it so that no matter what you do you will not do it well. If you don’t do anything well, you will never have control over your wealth or success. Tip #1 NEVER BUY LINKS OR SERVICES THAT ARE LOW QUALITY AND TEMPORARY AND WILL DISAPPEAR A FEW WEEKS LATER! Tip #2 PBN and all those type of backlinks you build or pay someone to build are NOT SAFE anymore for your money site. Any type of link that you are not 100% sure is safe, link it to your Tier 2 backlinks. Tip #3 Never use SEO Packages that are less than $50 directly on your money site! There is always a reason why a good SEO service costs over $1000 and there is a similar service offered for $5 somewhere. While there is a good range of providers that provide decent and safe SEO service ranged $5 - $50, most of these services are not good for your money site. Tip #4 Social Media Marketing and building high quality social pages, posts and profiles that represent you still works nowdays! From my own experience, in 2019 i find all Social Media links much better than all other backlinking services! Tip #5 Don't pay thousands of dollars for someone to post something for you on Forbes, Huffingtonpost and similar websites! I mean come on guys! Paying $500-$2000 for someone to post something under a weird Fake Name account on a good website is not worth it. That account can get disabled anytime, if detected from staff. It's better to spend a few weeks and get your own reputation, under your own name and not mix up your business with millions of posts about junk and sometimes illegal websites. The answer to this whole situation and to avoid ending in this situation and dealing with this little bugger is... ORGANIC SEO & PROMOTION IS BETTER THAN AUTO-GENERATED BACKLINKS, SIGNALS, FAKE VIEWS AND SIMILAR STUFF! And all those providers you paid to help with your rankings were using Automated software and just took your money! Having a few high quality backlinks will result better than having millions of backlinks on websites that are being spammed with a lot of explicit content every minute! All those providers, have no idea what they are doing and are not doing this intentionally! Remember, quality is always better than quantity!
