    last week a friend ordered "4000 backlinks and evaluation links"
    i know evaluation links are probably just like alexa links or whatever but this guy provided this crap. says he knows how to insert a link, not a backlink, but (he even used the words robot text) said search engines can find them but they wont be a proper backlink...
    and this is an example of the report he provided (he provided 4000 html files)
    has hundreds of .govs urls


    anyone familiar with this?


    ps
    This is a zip-file with a html in it packed by me in order to upload
    and virus total site wont load right this second, if i get it to i will update this.

    backlinks.. your report contained html pages?
    now thats just idiotic. unless you know how to somehow make those a PR5-9 fast.
    anyway, looks like you got the short end of the stick buddy.
    hate to tell you but this is NOT what a report is supposed to look like at all. maybe giving you a doc full of links but not this.



    thanks for the VT on that, sometimes it doesn't work for me either so i depend on the help of others helping out sometimes.

    yeah, thousands of html files.
    mostly curious, thats all
    he said this is the output of the software he uses.

    99% sure this guy is scamming people, but i wouldnt have given him a penny to start with.

    why don't you put him on the shitlist? If the guy is scaming people and using terminology like - backlinks and links are not the same - you can expose him ;)

    I didnt open it, but I have seen software where you are supposed to upload the HTML files to your own hosts and index them, giving you backlinks on your own sites. This could be what he is doing. Do the HTML files actually contain his link in the code?

    no, the html file is very tiny and available to view above
