Just as described and an excellent service as expected.
I got 50 Posts package. I chose 3 keywords on beauty niche. All have in total about 1400 searches in US and about 10.000 globally.
Placing the order is straight and easy to understand.
First kw got from #50 to #28.
Second kw from nowhere to #19
Third kw hasn't got any movement so far.
Links where made on 4th October. Here are the screenshots from proranktracker:
OP was nice and he kept records of main keyword. He even made a short video talking about submission date and results.
Goodluck on your sales man!
Received my review copy from Jacob a few days ago and this service definitely provides a lot of power and is extremely easy to use.
I have used Jacobs services in the past and knew they were powerful so I directed all of the posts to the home page to help increase my overall domain authority to help increase the rank of all my pages at once and it has done exactly that.
My site is targeting local terms and the homepage, which is aiming at a low-medium competition term moved from #56 to 11# which is an awesome jump. As well as this I have had a few great inner page jumps, including 4 local low-medium competition keywords that moved from page 4 to 2. I am hoping it won't prove too hard to push those onto the first page now since I have some good authority behind the site.
Overall, great service! Good luck with sales!
*** REVIEW COPY : REVIEW ***
So, I setup my campaign in Jacob's system which was straight forward and easy to use and I believe within 24 hours or less all the promised links were placed. The links also showed up in ahrefs and I was able to see the spike in referring domains to my site. In terms of the link quality metrics they were above what Jacob promised to deliver.
In terms of rankings I haven't see anything significant yet (although there's been some minor positive movement), but I believe this is for 2 key reasons:
1. I'm going after some extremely competitive terms (high search volume in a very tough niche)
2. It's been less than 2 weeks and in my personal opinion it generally takes at least 30 days for Google to assign credit to new links.
So with those two points said, I'll be waiting over the next two weeks to see if I see any major SERP Movement. I just think it's too early to judge right now. However, I'm sure for less competitive terms you'd see a rank boost sooner.
One area that Jacob went above and beyond in was checking out why there wasn't as much movement as expected, he discovered something I had overlooked, which there was several pages indexed in Google, which should not have been. So I'll be talking with my web developer about fixing that. He even went as far as to make a video to show me where the particular problem was.
Overall 4/5 stars.
-Review Copy Review-
On October 30th, 2014, Initial Effort of SEcatapult placed 50 credits in my account as a review copy. Almost immediately I submitted the keywords and pages that I wanted to be ranked. Let me tell you some of the many reasons why SEcatapult has pleasantly surprised me.
First of all, the quality of work was more than I was expecting. I placed my â€˜bar-of-expectations' high and SEcatapult jumped right over it with ease. The blogposts are filled with quality content from quality writers. It is obvious that time was spent making these pretty.
Second, the metrics of the blogposts were over delivered. SEcatapult guaranteed a minimum trust flow for the blogs... and that trust flow was exceeded in most cases.
Lastly I would love to cover customer service. The report was amazing. SEcatapult went through my site wondering why results were not being properly achieved. I received a custom video going over pointers that I needed to fix to get the most out of the SEO.
I would recommend this service to ANY of my internet marketing pals. Thanks for the service!
Oh man do I have some good things to say about Initial Effort and his team. Alright let's begin.
The first site I gave him was drug related and I had worked on myself. He came back to me and told me that this, while not illegal in my country is not the best thing for the network as a whole. PERFECT! Honestly, this is what sellers NEED to be doing, not just taking every single website clients throw at them. Keeping the integrity of the network should be the number 1 priority, so honestly, great job on this.
So then I am thinking what other sites do I have that I would not mind tossing some links at. Oh, I had the perfect idea, I would use a site that the girlfriend helped me create (she did mostly everything). I took a quick look over the site, and decided to give it a go.
The backend of the system is extremely easy to set up. Built in spinner for keywords, plenty of selection for "more" "click here" type keywords and percentages that you want each to show up. I had a campaign going in probably under 60 seconds. Very easy to use.
Links went out, everything was looking great, so all that I had to do was sit back and relax. Today I got a pm from initial effort that this thread was live.
I open up the PM and there is a screencast with him talking about my website. I quickly watch the cast and realize I have all sorts of problems going on with my site (I did not put it together, honestly novice mistakes such as duplicate content pages haha).
I have worked with a LOT of people on this forum, and not once has someone taken the time to actually look at my site and suggest how I could get better rankings from the work that was already completed, A++.
Oh, and even with the duplicate content, here is what I have to show for it:
Probably the best customer support ive ever gotten on this forum and rankings to follow. Will fix up the site quick and hopefully I will see more increase. Thanks for the review copy and I 100% recommend this service.
Thank you for taking us live. Here are the results of this review copy for Mr. Apricot.
any review of discount copies??
any sample links or reviews copy?
please send the sample work
I have got 50 credits from op as part of review,
1) Whole system is very easy to use and it has tools to help you create spintax format, add generatic keywords, and what I liked that you can control process of your order and all links will show up in your account after work is complete.
2) TAT - op told me that it will take around 5 working days to complete and it is done in 24 hours.
3) I manually checked some of the domains, all with good metrics, aged, with good backlinks.
4) Content is readable, unique, I can not say that it is super star content, but you can use it as your tier 1 without any fear.
5) Customer support is on top level, fast, op check sites, give advices, helping customers to gain best result.
It is early to speak about serp movement, althrough I face positive movement already, I will get back with another review in a week or two.
So far it is one of the best services I find in BHW, I will order for sure for other my sites.
On 30th OCT, Initial effort Places 50 credits for 50 posts in my account, I have submitted keywords and url on 2nd November as I was busy in some other work, I have had submitted new website which I wanted to rank, within 48 hours he have made posts for my website.
Quality of posts were outstanding, He used quality content for blogpost and high Pa,Da,TF,CF blogs which are really good in SEO.
I have had given him low competition keywords based on skin-care niche, I am really impressed to see result that my keyword which has 720 U.S Searches got position of 24 from N/A.
Content: 10/10 - Quality of content was faboulous, Easily readable and CS passed
Posts: 8/10 - I would give 10 mark if posts were stayed on homepage for atleast 2 weeks
Blogs: 9/10 - Blogs are looking good, Simple, high PA/DA
Price: 9/10 - For the price, You can't get better deal
Overall: I'm satisfied from this service and I may use this service for my next project if SERP Stays for long
Thanks for Review copy, I would recommend this to everyone
I received a review copy from Initial Effort and here is what I found
1- The back end of the system is SUPER easy to set up and use
2- Once the project was set up the links arrived in 24 hours
3- Content is decent and readable but if you have a trained eye you can pick up that this is a network
4- I saved the best for last.... I set this up on a site a pretty much abandoned a long time ago but had some rankings. With no other content or links built the site moved into to the top 30 for a KW with almost 10,000 searches per month and moved to top 15 for a long tail keyword with almost 1000 searches per month! I saw this positive movement in the span of two weeks so there is a possibility it can move up even more!
I cannot argue with the results, this certainly worked as promised I would recommend this service for churn and burn type sites or as a tier 2 to boost up a tier 1 type site.
Is this safe for a clients site or is it too risky?
In any case I will use on my own site when I get some extra cash!
Also how is this different to SE Slingshot or is it now?
I am looking to rank a YT video. I have an established channel but this is a new video. It is a legit 10 minute video. Does this service work for YT videos?
I'm also wondering how is this different from SE slingshot?
Got a review copy before this service went live, and here is my honest review!
I bought a new domain and on the 26th October, 2014 and Install wordpress and articles.
5th November, 2014 the Service began and within 4 days, it is done.....
Few days later, my site is ranking on the top 60s for almost all the keywords!
This shows that this service is suitable for new websites, and after a few weeks, i will be back to share my ranking improvements.
Here's My Review
I was lucky enough to get a review copy and what a great service. I got links from very good sites as promised. 10/10 for the price and will definately recommend to anyone who needs to give their site a boost or this will work well on new sites.
Jacob also gave me some great advice on how to make more SEO friendly.
