I have bought many services and products from The Marketplace, overall I am happy with what I have received. The majority of Sellers are honest and provide a good service. Unfortunately the few that aren't, are starting to have a negative impact on BHW. This is especially true in the link building section. SEO - Link building http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f43-seo-link-building/ For a very small investment ANYBODY (qualified and experienced or not) can start a Sales Thread and make any outlandish claims they like. What invariably happens, is that a Mod will be provided with a top quality professional service for free and will then approve the thread. For the unscrupulous Sellers, they then proceed to provide the rest of us with a less than satisfactory service. I realise that the Mods are very busy but if we want this section to be considered a legitimate trustworthy business services section then we need to ensure that providers provide everything they claim. My suggestion would be to increase the cost of starting a thread to a minimum of double the cost of the most expensive service on offer. For example if I offer $500 link sales then to start my thread I have to pay $1000, if I offer $100 link building packages then I would pay $200. The current charge for starting a BST can be kept for any services offered for under $50 or raised to a minimum of $50. This should not be a barrier to anybody who is genuine. Then the Mods can receive the most expensive service for free and then they should have to provide a detailed report on the results they received from each service on completion. This should include a detailed ranking report every time. They would then use 50% of the Sales Thread charge to use dummy/mystery shopper accounts (under Jr.VIP level) to make sure the rest of us are receiving the same service. If Mods are too busy then this could be delegated to the Jr. Executive VIP level. This should be done annually to maintain quality. It might also be worthwhile to get rid of ALL free review copies, as what always happens is that people don't give negative reviews to freebies. I realise that some Sellers won't be happy with my suggestion. That is fine, it is only an idea but rather than be upset and negative I would encourage them to provide suggestions on how to make that section better and safer. I hope the above makes sense, it might not as I am a little tired this morning.
