    Hey BHW

    Found you via a contest on another website. Great forum here, seems like lots of great people and positive vibes all just helping one another.

    My team and I run a hydroponic + aquaponic business. We ventured into SEO once we received a referral from, who we thought was, a friend/mentor from a seminar we attended. Turns out the company he set us up with does have some respectable features, however we just got drained financially before anything was ever done, the damn blog never even was finished!

    Anyway, there's my sob story, lost tons of cash and reserves because we were promised the world, and now we're paying for it. So I'm going to become a member here and take things into my own hands! Look forward to the education from you fellow experienced members. Thank you. :)

    Sorry to hear that. Welcome to BHW. You should check out the Services for Sale Section. I've always had great luck with services here and the best part is that there's plenty of feedback to check out. Best of luck.

    I'm positive you will find a lot of useful information and help that would transform to plenty of $$$ if implemented.

    Take your time to understand the forum by navigating through it.

    And remember to abide by the rules because there is one here.

    Thank you all!

    I'm an avid forum user so I have a basic understanding of what is expected (of course I read the rules as well).

    Welcome jjbones...you'll learn a lot, just read the stickies, find popular threads that talk about ranking sites, learn about the different tools used, and above all, practice, practice, practice...don't wait months before trying something out, the best way to learn is to apply something...sounds cliche', I know, but it is true.

    Welcome!

    My personal recommendation to deal with SEO Companies with PAYG payments (we do).
    Pay for usage and results not long term (12 months in Australia) contract for dreams ;)
    It is sad what people getting bad immage about whole professional industry due to such incidents ...

    welcome to the best SEO forum on the net. I do not say Black Hat SEO, because this place is far more than that. I do small business SEO, if you need help or advice, add me on Skype and I will try to help where I can.
