    Part1: inflated use of googles disavow tool:

    Client mail to me:
    "I once ordered a SEO Agency.. And they built 50 Linkdirectories, though they used (exact match anchor) on all cases. I now got 10% EM, I did not like that and used the disavow tool. Rankings improved abit afterwards"

    I did not even shook my head.. I cried............


    Lets sum it up.
    Client paid hefty sum for 5$ cheap SEO services.. He got 50 (!)relevant, but poor links.
    Instead of trying to:
    -change anchor
    -delete them
    -let them be as they are and just create some new links with brand/domain.

    He created MORE chaos then ever..


    Part 2
    40000 Blog Comments

    me"did you do anything in the past to your domain?"
    client: "yeah,I ordered blog comments"
    me:"how much? 40000 to the domain"

    (i suppressed laughing)
    me:"how much you paid?"
    he:"400€"

    I nearly got a hear attack ;)

    I then pulled out ahrefs, 99% nofollow, OBL 9999, unique domains? approx 1500 ...
    Thats a good investentment.

    Really, anybody can call themselves SEO agencies? That's a big word.

    Maybe I should open my own SEO agency too.

    yeah. I see those clients as free "case studies". But I never tell them.

    Kind of getting payed to do case studies which in fact I can use for my own projects.

    kind of sick. I know. it works. for both of us.

    LMAO

    OP I don't want to be mean but hiring you as SEO it's almost same thing as ordering 4.000 blog comments for 400 euro :D

    Wasn't bashing OP, as I've read some of his posts and he knows his shit, but the low-entry barrier for being proclaimed an Seo Agency.

    thanks for the comments. But I just repost stuff of others, without testing my self for evidence - you know, the way seogurubloggers do it..

    I've read some of his posts here and found them pretty useful. But then again, I do not know what is good or bad so I'm just using my common sense.

    yeah. this parasite is still ranking for low comp. nicely. doesnt make any $ though. but was a great test for link pyramid.
    just one place before is a UR18/DR51 domain..
    he got the usual 1500 words article.
    I got the "PNG image" + link pyramid...

    @randomblackguy I don't condemn that using a cheap Fiverr gig will get you nowhere, but that would mean to use the try and hope strategy which don't yield great results(as I used it for PPC).

    How useful are those links? Their OBL etc.

    I heard a lot of time that BH is dead and blah blah, but then again I haven't given it a shot because of negativism.

    Now I'm asking... Do you have a case study or done some testing to back up your claims or you just repeat what you heard?
