    That's strange man! I only see raving reviews in his threads. You must be an exception then.

    The "one review" rule is wrong in my opinion due to the fact you cannot edit posts after a certain amount of time.

    With some services things can and do change such as links dropping etc. 1 review update could and should be allowed because many people have reported being pressured or bribed to place a positive review immediately after the work is completed. This does not allow enough time to evaluate a service that takes time to have an effect.

    Some will argue that members should not be in a hurry to leave their initial review but if you are new to link building you almost certainly don't understand the whole process.

    Hey you can ways reply to the bst along these lines... "Update after 3 months of using this service"

    I always make sure to update my review after couple months and so far my reviews have not been removed.

    I think having another update review is okay. Just make sure you mention it in the beginning or quote your previous review.

    How can you know if one is spam acc? Is it from only newly-joined member posted transaction review?
    Wouldn't mind risking mine. I can help scrape those if it helps

    Really seems like certain people are protecting the status quo here and it's rather disappointing as I remember a time when BHW laughed at another certain forum for doing exactly what is happening here now.

    It's impossible for normal users to win when moderators side with the advertising dollars

    Well,

    If you really wanted to make it a clean market place, and assess the efficiency of the services it should be pretty easy.

    Setup 3 websites in 3 different niches. 6000 words unique content on each, broken down in a few articles. Content SEO optimized.

    Then a part of the listing fee would finance the independent order of a "service" for each site.

    Each service would have an independent review thread managed by BHW or a mod. A script would display ranking evolution for each of the sites without the URL and keyword so it stays anonymous to the seller.

    That would be the best to assess the short / medium / long term effect of such service...

    This is truly the only way rather than rely on reviews that are never updated.

    I get it. Rules are for everyone and I'm not an exception :)

    But for me it seems really strange, that sellers can post same pictures again and again while I'm not allowed to post an update on my review.

    Yeah, I got a warning for posting a negative review for a service and then replying to the seller when he said it was my fault. The seller provided something like 60% exact match anchors, even though the sales thread said they diversified the anchor text. The seller claimed I was lying, so I posted screenshot proof and then subsequently got a warning.

    This was ages ago, and I have learned my lesson.

    The seller is still going strong and is one of the more expensive 'link packages' providers.

    Can we even report sarkar's services for blasting everything on the same day from his service which is definitely a no-no? @BassTrackerBoats

    I found it funny sarkar offered me a refund, but once I stated Im not going to change anything on my honest review, he never sends any money back to me. It seems like he wants the threads clean.

    tell him you want the refund he offered if he gave you bad service. let him know you are giving him the ? 48 hours notice before you start a SL. It sounds like these sellers follow the forum rules and if they broke it they will refund it but you have to push them all the way. so if he blasted the links when it said drip feed start the process to SL and get your money back. I get that the sellers misrepresent but at least they are on a forum where you can get your money back. If everyone pressed for their money back they would change or update their service. When everyone just says ahh that sucks and the very few go for the refund it encourages them to be sloppy.

    I used sarkar in 2017 on a money site and was not impressed but I did a small tester package and it was at least drip fed. The quality was lower than advertised. I asked BTB for advice and got another BST to do damage control with a nice broad hand done package. I then built a few more links and then got very busy with the business the website created. I should of pressed for a refund or even left a review but I dont think I did. .. So Im also guilty of being lazy.

    and reviews in their BST look suspect as hell. When you are posting for the second time in the forum saying heres another 10 orders thanks like always it just stinks of bullshit
