    This is what I am offered.

    100 wordpress blog posting
    200 social networking links
    100 directories
    50 fourms
    for 199$

    A company recommended to me from this forum actually... Not sure that is majorly cheap though do you?

    This includes article writing. Which leads me to my next thought, Articles written by another company is likely to make your business look rubbish right? There is no way a third party can write eloquent valued content for a site they know nothing about right?

    Let's see... as far as I know if you were to get these services separately here are APPROXIMATE rates

    100 wordpress comments - depends on PR, but $20 for low PR is fair
    200 social bookmarks - you can easily get this service at $10-15/100.. so let's say $25
    100 directories - unless they're REALLY doing it manually (I highly doubt it) this costs like $15/1000.. or like $2 for 100 ?
    50 forums - considering you can get 5000 posts for under $20 with xrumer services, I don't even understand why 50 forums is a service of its own here.. but I guess it's worth about $0.15

    Yeah, it's a rip off...

    Do you think there is someone on this forum that might offer me something more reasonable?

    According to the company here, they said that social bookmarking was dead! I wasnt aware of that.

    However they have offered a series of different approaches as a package which did interest me.

    Thanks for the note, its not a lot of dough, but when you are doing it 50 times a year... it all adds up.

    Never take package deals. Always decide what you want, list them on your spreadsheet and get the best price for each service. Then you will know if the package deal is worth it.

    Before spending money, do the Eben Pagan courses at Biztorrents.com. He does 20 million a year from his home all of it outsourced. Become an expert then outsource.

    As for the article quality, it depends on the purpose.
    Cheap articles as long as it's readable is enough for backlink.
    Don't hope much for the traffic that comes from the article,
    you'll need decent writer and good knowledge about your site.
