    I`d really like to outsource my SEO, especially the link building. That`s such a big pain in the butt.. I found several sites on G00gle when searching for "outsource SEO", but I dont know which ones I can trust; off course they all tell me they`re the best there is.. :rolleyes:

    So do anyone here have someone/some service to recommend?

    Before I get spammed to death with people telling me they can build "10 links for ONLY 5 bucks!!!!11one", just let me tell you one small thing: if the people that are offering the service ain`t got a website of their own that are both ranked high, have a professional design, and do have good reviews, I won`t be buying their service any time soon. :cool:

    I need someone to keep me on top of big ol` G for 4, maybe more, keywords. It`s not in English, and I`m already on the first page for 3 of them and on #11 for the last. It`s not a big job getting to the top and staying there, so we`re talking sustainable link building, long term.

    To make it clear: I`m not paying for a number of links, I`m paying for a good ranking, and it`s really easy getting there. It`s staying there that is the problem. I just don`t have the time to do it myself.


    If you can`t deliver this, don`t offer me something else. I don`t need it.

    Thank you.

    The most interesting part will be seeing how many people bothered to read the whole post to see what you're asking of people before they recommend themselves. Ha. My site is new so I don't qualify but if you need any advice feel free to PM me.

    If you`re serious you`ll read the whole thing, will you not? ;)

    What kind of advice? I know "all" I need to know to rank, I just don`t have the time to do it. :)

    Thank you, I`ll look into it. :)

    Yeah I agree that people who are serious will read it all, and there is no advice to offer you than if you know it all already. :p

    Here is the shortest word that you need to ask to someone offering you their service.

    "portfolio"

    odeskdotcom.

    Get someone somewhere in the world to do linkbuilding for $3-5/hour. I've heard good things, but never used them. Seems like a good deal if you just want random links which is good for natural looking seo. Or maybe I'm wrong.

    Find someone who is ready to work for less and just teach him everything what he must do. I Pay my workers $30/week for 6days-week/6hours-day work.
    Cool huh? :D

    Depends, seo is really not that hard, find a keyword rich domain and you just cut your time in half, then focus on baclinks useing that same keyword, bookmark, ping over and over til you reach the first page, I stay #5 on my main keyword doing this, it ain't rocket science

    You should make the job automated like I do. Get tools to do all your backlinking tasks. This way you save money in the long run and you always know that the tasks have been done correctly.

    I hear your pain. Unless you are selling your own product, there are too many risks involved with outsourcing. I ended up using automation tools and doing most of the work with my own people. SEO companies will peak at your destination pages and affiliate programs with no good consequences to your business. Same for AdSense - I will not risk another good niche with externals.

    Although it involves a lot of micromanagement, a safe approach is to break down each campaign in very small pieces and give it to different people to do it. You need small guys that will not understand the big picture and prefer to work many orders from various clients. It might still backfire though.

    Absolutely no recommendations, here or elsewhere - it is not worth the cost.

    Small update: decided to buy links only, to make things simple.. So I bought 1500 links from this site.. http://www.ultraseosolutions.com/

    Not seing any results what so ever as of right now, but with Christmas and all I`m not gonna talk dirt about them quite yet, things probably take a little longer around Christmas; actually, the guy running the site emailed me like 3 minutes after receiving my order, and was more helpful than any other service I`ve ever used. Let`s hope the results are just as good. :)

    get some backlinks from SERVICES FOR SALE section in this forum.
    alot of members are selling their service and they are effective.

    alittle blackhat at times will do wonders.
    try it.

    You're really cutting yourself short if you're limiting yourself to someone with a 'professional' looking site. You're paying 10x what you could pay hiring some indian off of here, while they just outsource to the same indian you turned away.

    Yeah, I've tried UltraSEOSolutions and I can recommend them for their blog commenting service. They take around 4-5 (much longer on the holidays) days to give you your report so they may not have started on your project yet.

    I dont care THAT much, really, cuz money I`ve got. Time, not so much. I`d pay 10x as much and get the results I pay for, rather than getting screwed over and waste a lot of time. I mean, getting the results in time could mean 2-3000 USD extra in my pocket..

    On the other hand, if someone here have some indian guy to recommend, let me know. I wouldn`t mind paying less.. I could even hire him or her full time, if the person does a good job. I`m hard to please though, but I pay quite ok if I get the results I want..

    But.. I think I`ll just sit around and watch tv until I start seing the results from UltraSEOSolutions, before doing anything else.. :rolleyes:

    NO one said outsourcing is easy. I myself outsource link building tasks but I do it a bit differently cause we all know how difficult it is to find someone good...

    I use odesk, craiglist or elance to find people..

    I pay them a small hourly rate & large bonus if they do a good job..

    This eliminates cockroaches and helps me find good people faster...

    example: I pay $1.50 per hour for their time & $0.10 per .link

    Links are qualified upfront so there is NO confusion..

    Good Luck,

    PS: Thank me for this.. as this is gold.... :)

    Great stuff, thanks. :)

    But do you hire asians only, or folks from other parts of the world?

    To be honest, the best have been filipinos by far... english, hard working and actually try to do a good job...

    The best advise I can give someone new to outsourcing is to have a process in place and let the outsourcer fail... it is up to you to see if you want to correct them... but let them think on their own... this will give you a good grasp as to who you can work with..
