    Saw this on fiverr and wondered if this guy is scamming or i could damage my ranking if he used black hat methods.

    I wouldnt do it, only one feedback "No proof yet but hopeful thanks". Only try such things with domains you don't use.

    I wonder what they would say if I bought this for one of my PR5 domains. Also, would $50 get me a PR 10 if I use them all on 1 site?
    </sarcasm>

    All kidding aside, I wouldn't trust them.

    lol. As far as I know, there's not a definitive way to increase your page rank.

    Do you really think anyone would sell this massive secret for 3.92?

    Definitely scam, as mentioned above, PR jump is harder at every stage, so 0-3 is is, 3-4 hard, 4-5 very hard etc...

    I reckon the guy will do something (link build or whatever) then say PR will take 8 weeks to update or something like that - by the time it doesn't update, the gig is already closed...???

    Don't waste your time with that, PR updates are so sporadic these days who knows how long you'd be waiting.

    You'd see better results from buying some link packages, atleast at that point you could actually see some increased PR at some point.

    The seller can't guarantee that.

    Oh and you wouldnt get banned for buying a 5$ link.

    Bear in mind the majority of people who talk about being banned dont know what they are talking about.

    Or he's probably not doing anything at all and claiming that he is. Do ou really think he'd waste time with redirects for a $5 gig?
