    So this person on a site that offers services says that they operate under Google survey services and constantly knows the algorithm to get me on page. The feedback is confirming this. What is your experience and have I found a secret? Because individual feedback is off charts and this is hard site to play. For your information I am extremely cynical and have been well traveled and heard a lot and believe little to nothing.

    to be honest, I'm very skeptical, sounds like major BS to me, of course, i don't know this guy, so i can't be certain, but i would never buy this, it seems like a big pile of bull,sounds like a pretty obvious scam to me.

    I thought that too but how do you get all that good feedback from so many different people? Deliberately create fake buy and sell accounts? And somebody would have to buy or they would make no $.

    I offer a similar service where clients pay once I get the results, but this is only with trustworthy businesses I know will pay me, but I don't claim to have any insider info. LOL

    They may get you on the first page, but i really doubt it is because they know google's algorithm.

    My concern would be this "constantly knows the algorithm to get me on page."

    I don't think anyone outside of those at google know the alrorithm.

    That's according to google people.

    I would be very skeptical of anyone who said they know google's algorithm. I make some sensational claims... but even I wouldn't go that far! If they're asking for ANY upfront money, I'd run!

    This is an absolute scam. Google does not disclose it's algorithm to any company. Otherwise major player's would be forking over millions and not pay for PPC ads.

    Getting you to page 1 or #1 is not as impossible as some people make it seem. It's easy once you know what to do (I'm not talking about using scrapebox or xrumer either). I've done it several times, and have beat HUGE authority sites. Them knowing the algorithm is VERY unlikely though. As far as asking for upfront money...why run? That in no way indicates that they're scammers. How many businesses do you know of require some kind of retainer for big projects? This is very common...but just make sure that if you get their service that they have a portfolio or references (NOT ON THEIR SITE) that can vouch for them. Any reputable business can provide this for you. Run it by another person in the SEO industry, too. Someone you trust before you pay so that you know they're not scamming you.
