    A friend of mine got scammed by someone who sells monthly seo service. He charged $160 from my friend every month for 3 month to rank a medium competition niche.

    What did he do in 3 months?
    - Comment spam on 2 websites! Totally unrelated niche.
    - Submitted links on high obl spam sites.
    - He didn't even looked at the site for on page optimization lol. Just spammed.

    $160 A month, you see where he went wrong? You never see the "my client" threads here? Asking the most basic advice about what their SEO client wants. But that ain't even the end of the joke. The real joke is most the people giving advice are also clueless noobs. Your average person who knows the business just laughs these threads off with a shake of the head.

    "My client said he want H1, H2 and H3 tags in his articles, wat der fuk iz ee talkun abowt?"

    Wtf?Romanian? And why did Micky liked it? @mickyfu Are you from Romania?

    Anyway, why I even bother trying to learn SEO? I mean look how easy is for some to make money, while I stretch my head learning SEO at a high level.

    i give advise and i'm not a clueless noob. i'm an seo specialist working for a multinational company. not everyone here sells their services. some of us just linger around helping people.

    I'm pretty sure you only responded to my comment to tell everyone that you are a "international SEO superstar".

    lol there is no such thing as SEO superstars only sales guys with ego problems disguised as "specialist", because in SEO you never need to proof what you say is true as nobody knows.
    the google algo is secret so everybody is guessing. you can always blame it on the latest (or last) update. perfect field for cluless attention whores to run around on SEO conventions, hold a speech pointing at some meaningless stats and then feeling special about themselfs in front of the other hipsters running around at these places "networking".

    Your friend cause it all, some times when you see some one charges higher fees for a service they will never turn back to give you a reasonable price all they do is looking for cheapest price and at the end of it all they got scammed. I have a client who patronized me some days ago for SES accounts I charges him 200$ per single purchase but I told him if he is buying from 2 and above I will give him for 150$ each he ran away and some one gave him 2 SES accounts for 50$ and that's how he get screw. Tell your friends to learn to sacrifice we use huge money to make huge money.
