    Hi guys, I am sorry if this is in the wrong section. My question is basically, I'd like to see if someone could translate this for me? I paid someone to check out one of my sites, and he said he'd , well, he's his words:



    He then comes back and tells me that he cannot complete the job, due to lacking information he could not get using his "special tools".(Thats not me mocking him, just quoting")
    ----


    -----


    My confusion came when he said there was "no information there". I'm not asking anyone to waste their time checking my site out and whatnot, just like to know exactly what he means by what he is saying here. Tried to reach him again, with no success. I assumed initially that he was saying I was not being indexed at all, meanwhile I was seeing my Alex ranking, posted below: (Which I hear is worthless, sort of?)

    I'm sure this is pretty sad, but keep in mind it was my first website ever. I've been doing it all on my own, and now I've got another that I am starting. Any feedback is , as always , greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading. Hopefully I am clear in what I am asking.


    Also, the site I cannot link to here in this thread I guess, not enough posts or something. I'd like to also point out I am not suggesting he is b.s.ing me, I'm sure he knows his stuff, and he is probably right. My site is very young. Its just that seeing the ranking I got from Alexa, again not the greatest but its a start, figured he'd have no issues. Thanks for helping out a new guy. I will work very hard and keep learning all I possibly can.


    P.S. Unrelated- I am trying to find a page here on the forums that I downloaded what I thought were articles, but soon after my computer went nuts, its still acting up. task bar vanished, when I load it back up via Task Manager, it goes away and then comes back over and over. Please someone advice me on what to do with this? I alerted a Mod but perhaps he/she is not available. I'd like to know if theres a way I can find the exact page on the forums where the file is. Theres several links that go to a external site, I still have the link for the file if need be, I can leave the name of the file. I just do not want some other noob to come along , and if it is a virus, get infected. Every attempt to scan, many different progs, my entire pc freezes and I must reboot.

    It sounds like the service he uses to provide reports has its own crawler and it has not crawled your site yet. (Possibly SeoMoz?)

    Ah, I see. So basically he was unable to complete the job due to his tools?? So I could ask for a refund, or? I'm not sure if it is due to my site being so young, or his tools being inadequate?

    Cheers, MBW007. I do appreciate you reading and taking the time to respond.

    I've learned quite a bit so far, most of what I managed to do is what I have researched her. :)

    Given he is unable to complete the job, I believe a refund is reasonable.

    SEO Spyglass relied on the free data given out by Yahoo, which is no longer available. Banklink count is down around 10% of what it was, and it's analysis is laughable and worthless. (This used to be the best software available, btw.) They claim to be developing their own scraper, but I find more backlinks by simply doing a google search of mydomainnamedotcom than what SEOSpyglass reports, and Google even arranges that list in order of importance, which if you think about it cannot be all that difficult for a 3rd party software to do, since Google does it's searches without captcha, etc...

    What did you pay for the service, and what was your understanding of what you would recieve. It sounds like he was simply going to give you a report of whatever his software outputted, and since the software is broken you did not get what you paid for.

    The red flag here is that instead of giving you your money back, he gave you a bunch of words and reasons instead. That's bad. Does he have a sales thread here on BHW? If so, it's not necessary to mention his name here. No need to make problems when a simple request for a refund is all that is required. I'm just concerned it wasn't offered.

    I just re-read your posts. Input your URL into this site, and see if there is any information that can be found, in order to find out if he is telling the truth.
