    Hi. Our company hired a seo specialist. All keywords ar going up pretty good, but i can't find any signals of seo. No social posts or shares, no backlinks (mb 5 or 7 from low DA. i used about 20 free backlinks tools like moz, majestic semrush ant etc, was googling links:domain.com ) no private blogs, only about 15 backlinks from google.com, no local citation (was googling phone, adress, email, some of page title's and even parts of content. All pages have about 200-250 words. DA and PA is very low... Website is about 2-3 years old. Website is not for english languages. I have all date of webmater tools and it's don't show any backlinks...

    Quite possible your seo specialist is using a pbn with blocked bots

    as @cocococo says it apears that bots are being blocked now I assume you would know if it was at your own site, so it probably is at a pbn level, also keep in mind that googling links:domain.com isn't going to show you all of the links that google has picked up on but only some, the reason simply is that google doesn't want your competitors to know what links to build and how many.

    Have you tried contacting the seo specialist to see if he can clarify things a bit for you, remember also that maybe not all of the links has been picked up by the bots yet. some of the sites only update once a month

    Fire them, now. If they can't tell you then it's wicked shady. What works today could be a ban from Google tomorrow.

    Shady is definitely not white hat. You gotta ask them to come clean on the strategy, as you're failing to find any links using Moz, Semrush, majestic and all others.
