When a seller is offering a complete review site where they provide content, you would expect basic

  1. Yes of course, otherwise it is not complete.

  2. No, the seller is taking the easy way out.

    So when you read a sales thread like this, you'd expect even basic on page seo ( such as a focus keyword / title tag and meta description), especially as they provide the articles and upload them yeah ?

    They promised;
    Create a fully loaded Amazon product review site.
    1x niche tower article
    4 niche bridge articles
    20 supporting articles
    keyword strategy, content strategy,

    Be prepared to experience TOP NOTCH customer service and delivery.


    This is what was received (late, over due and I'm underwhelmed by it);

    A solid keyword strategy should definitely include on page optimization for the keywords. I agree with @hasa1015, tell which seller did this. Honest and unadorned reviews are the only way to make it better.

    I'd expect the lazy fucks to put something in there at the very least.

    That's the key question, but really doesn't matter a jot that the meta title etc wasnt filled in Google will just read the page and decide for irself what they will be.

    Not filling those in doesn't mean there "is no seo", and filling them in doesn't automatically FORCE Google to pay any attention at all to them either.

    This.

    Google will read your page and show whatever they think is more relevant to the search. Instead of focusing on Meta description and Title, I would focus on the following:

    - Has the seller optimized the images?
    - The density of the main keyword
    - LSI/long-tail rich article?
    - Is the copy good enough to convert?
    - Intern-linking was done properly?

    Shit List them, some of those sites offered in The Marketplace are pure trash. Have asked for samples for many of those services and been very disappointed.

    That's like selling boots with no laces
    Even if the meta description doesn't help with SEO, it wont do the CTR any harm

    What gets me is what is received can not have passed a review by a Moderator, there is no way what some people are buying is the same as supplied to be reviewed.

    Clearly many sellers here just provide a kickass service for the review. Once the service is approved, the quality goes downhill.

    Oh and yeah, name and shame the seller. There are a lot of buyers lurking around. It is only fair if the shitty product/service is called out and the potential buyers saved from a not-so-pleasant experience.

    Shhhiiiiitttt, just saw you have been waiting over 6 months for the site. That is excessive, those sites shouldn't take longer than a week/fortnight to knock up, depending on the time for articles to be completed.
