    Hi gurus,I read many thread of SEO services(most are link building sub-forum), found most reviews posted by large quantity of different clients in these threads were positive, some of the services maintained a long time, e.g. from 2012, I'm very puzzled because so many people said: "do not use black hat SEO for your site", why so many webmasters still use them and satisfied? Did they all run a short term website? For instance, build a new site and use service here rank some keywords in 1-3 months and get some orders, after some weeks the keywords are all dropped, then abandon this site and build another new one, and rank keywords.....over and over again.
    The following pictures are posted in some other forums,please see and give some advice here, thanks.

    Well if you know how to use a tool, it can be profitable, if not, then no. It's not sold as a turnkey package, you have to actualy work when you buy those kind of services. It's just something that you would have done but do not have the time to do.

    It based on their niche and quality of the site.Many people use this technique to rank faster maybe it's not stable but in that period of time, they earned the money more than they invested.This is profitable if you get knowledge about this technique.

    Yes, it's working but only for short term websites as you think.

    If you have any interest in building your site for a real and sustainable business, it just doesn't going to work for you. Use it wisely!

    Hmmm strange, as i have sites that are being blackhatted and are doing fine for almost 9 years now... Guess that i must be the lucky one that felt through the virtual cracks right? Or maybe 9 years is short term for you ;-))

    If you know what your doing and if you do a lot of testing you can get away with a lot of stuff for a very long time and build that "sustainable " business (whatever that means) and i don't have to tell you that even if you';re on the up and up changes are that Google will tank your site eventually because they need that adwords money for their stockholders

    yes some of the service is maintaining for long time and that service had many positive reviews from different client. because many people are using this kind of service for their short term websites not for money site because we can not say this kind of ranking will last for long time and you can also find some services for money site too.

    It still works for sure, although some of the stuff that worked great in the past doesn't deliver results any more, especially the layered "install software on VPS, hit button, done" mass spam approach. Trying the bookmarks, blog comments, forum profiles, article directory and directory submission route is a sure failure. The more sophisticated stuff like PBNs still works fine.

    The real question is: What is blackhat? For example, huge agencies do outreaches to bloggers actively offering some sort of "cooperation", send gifts to bloggers, sponsor events or local clubs and get links this way, donate to charity and generate links this way, pay magazines for publishing articles, write expert guest posts and offer them to site owners as "valuable content", publish bogus job advertisements to get links from universities, etc. That's outside of the webmaster guidelines, too. The only thing that's really whitehat is creating great content and hoping someone will ever link it, everything else is grey to black.

    Bottom line: If you narrow down the definition of blackhat to "mass spam", the claim that it's purely churn & burn with diminishing returns is true, but in reality almost everything you actively initiate offpage is blackhat.

    It really depends on what you want and how you want it.

    It works like a charm,but remember content is king when it comes down to it.then use gsa ranker to scale it large.
