    I have a client that I did a months worth of work for with noticable results, and now they are refusing to pay? I don't want to sue, so what else can I do.

    Do you not have a contract?
    Why on earth didn't you have them pay upfront which is the norm in this industry?
    Rank a site one place above them for the same keywords displaying the proof they
    are non payers.

    have you officially gotten a deposit or confirmation from them that they hired you before you start work?

    If you do, you have every right to charge them and tell them if they don't pay, you will lodge a complain to their local business bureau.

    and if they still don't pay, you can get them banned or deindexed on google yea?

    If he refuses to pay you can't do much besides sue or just take it as lesson learned and start requiring money up front.

    Should have done linkbuilding to a domain with a 301, so you can remove the redirect if there's any problems.

    Go scrape 50000 poRn links in scrape box

    And link and ping them tones of times

    Then sign up their email to a bunch of porn email submits.

    if he is dumb make a simple virus that deletes his boot files change the icon to something he would open so when he restarts haha

    name it something like "Click here to get on the first page google FREE!"

    no doubt he will click it

    Don't do anything stupid and ruin your own rep by destroying this guy. Lodge a complaint. Or call Judge Judy.

    Suck it up. Going on a vendetta will probably end up hurting you more than it will hurt him and thinking about negative things and holding a grudge will fuck up your health.

    one side of me says..."pay me or I will destroy your site" and then anchor text his site
    with porn and al qaeda stuff BUT the other side says "Take it on the chin and learn
    from it"
