Hi, Ive been making money from the internet for a while, but this hasn't been in the realm of internet marketing. I already have some basic knowledge on seo, keyword research, link building, optimizing sites. However after reading around this forum and others I have come to realise what an incredibly fierce environment it is, and the level of software usage and manipulation that is required to get to the top of google for even one of your keywords. My question was would it then not be easier to outsource this work to someone who know what they are doing. My main issue is i know i can learn these techniques however time is the biggest issue. There are people offering good link building services for under $50. Would you reccommend i follow this route or actually learn blackhat seo techniques from scratch.
