    Hi guys,

    Is there anyway to tell if when I hire someone from FreelancerDotCom if they used Black hat or White hat techniques after the fact?

    I hired someone last month to place 10 backlinks on PR 4 and PR 5 pages and now all of the keywords I gave the freelancer to place have now fallen off Google serps.

    Is there anyway I can know if he got me into any trouble?

    Another thing is my site is an Adult site and he put most of the backlinks on mainstream sites.

    Thanks for any help.

    I would suggest you to go for a company rather than freelancers.... I am also a part of a company, but i am not telling that give that project to me. I am just suggesting you that a company is always safer than a freelancer. You pay money to both. So go for a company.

    how long ago did he put up the links? could just be a google dance. i've done high pr link building to sites.. they drop out of rankings for a bit but bounce back better than ever.

    give it some time. other than that all of them use blackhat .... ok back to reality how are we supposed to know what he did ? most of them do it manually as they do not posses any tools. just go for services here I am sure you will find ppl with way more knowledge.

    May be any of the 2 reasons:

    1. Google Dance
    2. Google would have punished you because they would have tracked some footprints.

    I am not sure but could be any one of the reasons.. Could analyze better if you provide me the details..

    pm me and i can surely help you on this :)

    You could use oDesk if you want to stick with freelancers, it provides your screenshots of what your worker is doing. This would allow you to see exactly how they do it.

    Good luck.

    Yeah shoot for odesk. because odesk monitors your outsourcers activity through screenshots every 5-10 min random.

    well but you got the point ranomly so you wont see anything. they can delete screenshots - wont get paid for that time though. so it is a good approach to get a basic idea what he is doing but not 100%

    IMO either:

    1) Your site got an automatic filtered / penalty for doing something that looked like you were "buying links" (which of course you were), in which case, give it a few weeks - 3 months and it should bounce back

    2) Your links have been removed and you lost your position again

    Most of the time its point 1, this happens all the time in competitive / heavily spammed niches / sectors. Get used to it, its routine stuff.... well, routine if you have a lot of sites :p

    Posting in the wrong thread? Not once did he say he got deindexed. He just wanted to know why his rankings droped.

    Anyways OP sounds like the google dance. keep building links and it'll come back.

    Thanks guys for all of the advice.

    My keywords are already starting to clinb back up, still no where as high as they were.

    I will just chalk it up to a Google dance as most of you have said.
    At least that's what I hope.

    Thanks again guys.
