Hey BHW's, I have a recent acquaintance and friend of mine who's owns an offline brick and mortar business and he's just getting into the online scene. I helped him improve his business by building him a few landing pages and doing SEO on his LP's and Main website, which caused his sites to rank very well and bring in good business. Some of the methods I used: *Building quality backlinks (social bookmarking, blog commenting, other high pr websites .edu's and .orgs) *Purchased redirected traffic from BHW to his site to increase activity etc. *Optimized his websites and added more unique content to everything Now our newly established relationship is dwindling because another SEO firm is telling him that everything I did is borderline illegal and that his company could get in major hot water with Google and other search engines etc. and potentially destroy his business. Can anyone please verify that what I have done for him is not bad? I use these methods and then some on my own websites and I have never had any problems.
