    Over the next three to six months, i intend to purchase several SEO services for which i will give full reviews to assist others in future who want to buy services.

    I recently my order back from Leith AKA YEEHA SEO and Ive just placed an order with Sarkar21 AKA Sherlock hacks Google. I will be placing an average of 2-4 order per month and I will be using other providers in weeks to come


    I am giving these instructions so that i myself can also choose who i will like to work with on a long term basis
    My review will cover the following

    COMMUNICATION
    - I will give information on how the OP/Service provider has reviewed my site and given necessary advice before taking money
    - Communication before, during and after the work is complete

    QUALITY / RELEVANCE OF LINKS
    - I will assess the quality of links and ascertain the percentage of the good ones and the relevance of the links to the niche will also be assessed

    PRICE and VALUE
    - I will look into the amount charged by the providers, and will assess this against the quality . This enable me to see if i've got value for money and assess the return on my investment

    OUTCOME and PERFORMANCE
    -age of domain, page rank at the same levels will be given to each provider to as to assess equality on the site given . Example If i give a provider a website with Page rank 3 and with a 8year old domain, i will give another provider the same sites with similar parameters


    KEYWORDS OUTCOME
    I will assess the outcome and performance of
    - Low Competition keywords
    - Medium competition keywords
    - High / Difficult competition keywords




    TURNAROUND and SERP MOVEMENT
    Length of time in delivering the service will be measured against when serp movement is observed
    I will also check the following


    - VALUE FOR MONEY and RETURN ON INVESTMENT
    - QUALITY OF REPORT IF ANY ?
    - COMPLAINTS and PENALTY FROM GOOGLE
    Please feel free to add any other thing i might have missed out from this analysis at the end i shall prepare a Graph, Pie chart or Histogram which will entail


    Service providers against parameters listed in the thread above

    Yes, great looking thread! Although a quality inspector never announces themself until after their review in order to avoid a biased performance by the seller, you should have probably kept this a secret until you'd reviewed all of the services.

    Dont worry I dont need to keep it secret. I will be using at least 10 service providers and I can assure you, i will not be recommending an individual provider because it is impossible for one providers to tick all the right boxes. This case study will be completed in 3months hopefully and i intend to spend between $2000 approximately. I know its not a lot of money but it will achieve my aim.

    I have never and I will never provider a service on BHW at least for the next 2yrs. My report will be very thorough and with my background i can assure you it will be detailed.

    I know some worried service providers may come on this thread to bash it, if you are sure you been providing Quality service to BHW members or if you are sure you will provide a Quality service nothing to worry about.

    Lets wait and see

    I think this will be good.

    How are you going to isolate the results of each service? Are you going to be creating a new website for each service and then gauging their improvements?

    Thanks for the thread. Just to clarify - I did NOT know this thread was being created (therefore I could not have done "extra" work to the OP or something).

    I only just saw this thread now and it would definitely be helpful to other members.

    I don't think any SEO provider can tick every check box possible but I am pretty confident that I can tick the most of them.

    Look forward to your other reviews too and I hope this helps other people who are thinking of ordering.

    Why should we trust you?

    How do I know you don't have any advantages to promote one specific seller?

    I don't think atongalee gives a damn what sellers think. At least, that's how it should be if he is serious

    Hello Friends,

    As one of the OP mentioned. I dont give a damn on what the sellers think. Some people with hate me for this an some people will like me. As long as BHW members benefit from this thread and benefit from Quality service from providers . Im happy.

    Also i can say publicly that i will not promote anybody's service and i dont plan to sell anything on BHW for at least 2years till 2015. If i sell anything pls call me out on this thread.

    I will do some anonymously and also i can assure you i dont have friends selling SEO service...I will get back to yo with a better answer.

    anonymity would have been better yep.
    Anyway those who sell crap can do twice the work it will still be crap, so it can still be useful.

    Was thinking this myself too!

    It's an absolutely great idea (like a Mystery Shopper you get there in the UK)... but you may just have given the game away by telling everybody that you're going to review them all ahead of time.

    I'd imagine everyone will be pulling out all the stops to get A++ reviews from you... so anyone that sees this thread that may have not been up to par may just raise their game to get a good review!

    Still... I'll be coming back regularly to see your reviews though :)

    Great idea - thanks given!
