    Hey everyone,

    I have jumped through all the hoops to become Google certified, and frankly, the man hours taken to develop a strong back linking strategy from scratch is substantial. We have to outsource some of the work as a natural progression in business continues. That said, I've used a few services from BHW with varying success. Based on my R&D regarding link building, big search wants to see:

    - industry related links
    - primary language links (if a site is in English, it should link to English sites)
    - no keyword stuffing
    - no links built into footers, and produced unnaturally
    - no dating sites, or other spammy POS websites
    - blog sharing
    - signature content
    - sites with great PR, but again, in some way shape or form, related
    - meaningful comments on forums and blogs

    Is there anyone on BHW providing such services? I find that many are almost there, but lack that White Hat touch. Now, I know no system is perfect, but just as we adapted to changing technology, SEOs need to adjust to changing expectations. We do enough in-house but I want to knock it out of the park, with good people, providing great work!

    Cheers!

    Jamie

    Hey Jamie,

    It's not letting me put a lot of info in the reply because I'm still fairly new on the forum, but I do exactly what you are looking for. I specialize in getting follow links from the highest authority websites that exist (huff post, mashable, cnet, esquire, wired, etc.).

    I do this through creating and promoting viral content that is related to the client's industry or niche. Shoot me your email and I'll send you some info. It is as white hat as it possibly gets, and these are the best links you can hope for. In a way I'm like a PR/SEO hybrid.

    Cheers!

    Jake

    Sorry, perhaps I worded that wrong. Google Certified Partner for Administration. It has nothing to do with link building. More on the apps and Adwords side, but it does open up my eyes to how strict they are getting. There's a lot of cross-content in regards to subject matter.

    Right, so the Google certified bit was a red herring really.

    My service looks whitehat, as it is not spun rubbish content.

    There are some of these being openly sold here. The problem with buying (outsourcing) SEO in general though is that most in SEO are stuck a step or two behind the current times. They are in the mind set of "how can I do this quickly/cheaply" rather than pure quality. Meh crap you see selling now would have done amazing in 2012, but not now. There are a lot of people still selling content with shitty broken English, poorly spun content, or even non-unique content... you name it and I've seen it. And there are a shit ton of sellers still using tool generated links on brand new accounts that will never pick up authority (or in many cases even get indexed). And don't even get me started on PBN footprints.

    Sellers need to come up with better content, more aged accounts, and more natural looking accounts that don't just spam backlinks 24/7. Thrown in a non-backlink post every now and again, eh?

    There are a few really good sellers. Just do your homework and ask questions/samples.

    Hi Jamie
    There are still, some great ways to create white hat links.
    If doing it yourself , they are not easy to master at first, but worth the effort.
    The key to success with white hat is content promotion and outreach.
    After you create your content, you need developing relation with other industry members willing to share.
    Guest bogging and good content, are the best way to rank better.
    If you don't want to do it your self,
    here are 2 good white hat service : Fat Joe. Link Building and page one power.
    They're bit expensive , depends on your budget- it can be from 1000$ to 3000$ for such campaign.
    hop this helps.

    The reason why you don't see an all in one solution here on BHW (like you mentioned above), is because it's expensive to implement and 99% of the people on this forum don't have that kind of budget. You can certainly use some of the services here and piecemeal it together, but you will only find a portion of what is needed in order to implement a strong long term SEO solution.

    Just my 2 cents.

    ^

    There isn't enough demand for a white hat solution on BHW. If a service provider actually offered effective link building that doesn't infringe on any of Google's policies, then you would likely be paying as much as $50-$100 per link.

    Honestly, one of the better approaches when it comes to ranking your serious websites and reducing any chance for a google penalty is dropping about $4-6k or so on here for various high DA guest posts. Unique content for each guest post, good anchor diversity and related sites. Once you have 40-50 strong guest post backlinks, you then begin ordering various services on here to build links to your guest posts, to further strengthen them. This would be the more cost effective approach for clean link building.

    It could be trickier when it comes to finding google certified information/links.
