    What BSTs have been most powerful for you after the recent Google Penguin update?

    I have been experimenting with a few recently, but it is too early to analyze their full effects. Also, I have been combining many methods, so it will be hard to pinpoint which one was best.

    I think this discussion will be good for everyone who is in the market to have some SEO work done.

    Please post:

    The BST Name:
    What Package You Ordered:
    Whether or not your site was hit by penguin:
    SERP Movement:
    Whether or not this was the only SEO work you have had done.


    Please don't promote your gig or a friends gig, as the intention of this post is to provide legitimate information, not promotion.

    Thanks to everyone who participates and contributes.

    I got a feeling this thread is going to turn into a huge promotion thread very soon.

    OP, I don't blame you... :)

    I can partially foresee that, but I really hope it doesn't. It has the potential to turn into a very valuable resource for everyone on BHW.

    After fenguin :D i launch a new site
    post 5 unique articles and waited them to get index by them selves
    then bought MLF the smallest package you can find the thread in the service for sale thread and i asked the OP to drip feed the links because it was complete new site after a week i was sitting on page 2 and its a buyer's keyword the competition is really high and now i am on page one dancing between top 3 :) hope it will stop soon and i will be at the top 1 :)

    but always double check any service before you use them on the money site , try adding the provider on skype and try to tell them what kinda links your after and make sure to double check your on site SEO as well :)

    Haha. There is somewhat temptation in mentioning one's BST but I don't want to go there. This is really an awkward thread imo lol.

    I have a lot of sites that have been affected by penguin, and I have used a lot of different services from BST section. BUT, I don't feel it's really a fair for the service provider that I come here to tell everyone how I was penalized and used this, this and that service. I can't ever be sure it was because of their services, or lack of my own SEO abilites (anchors, velocity, past linkbuilding or onpage SEO). Everyone should understand that before saying anything, good or bad.

    I am looking for strictly positive feedback here. In my OP, when I asked whether the site was penguin hit, I meant before you got the BST. In case that was unclear. As for your remark about uncertainty, that is why I asked people to mention whether or not they are using other services or just one.

    This is NOT a shit list thread
    This is NOT a self-promotion thread

    The concept should be pretty easy for everyone to grasp.

    Easy enough to ask all of those that provide services to refrain from posting. Most would comply with an understanding that many may see their opinion as potentially biased.

    True.
    I know my thing (not a BST yet) works wonders and I can even prove that with screenshots but that would sound more like a shameless self promotion even if it isn't.
    That is why I didn't/wouldn't post anything in this thread about it. (oh well, I just did)

    How about doing a poll?

    That's a great idea. The only problem is there are so many BST's that I wouldn't want to leave any out. Not only would it not be fair to all BST sellers, but we could miss out on a gem.

    That being said, if a discussion actually gets going in this thread, we can take some of the top/frequently mentioned BSTs and throw them in a poll to get an even more accurate analysis.

    Of course, we would need people to actually begin contributing. Everyone is talking about the nature of this thread and not mentioning BSTs lol ;)

    This is a great post actually. However, there is a great potential for this post to get abused as well and soon enough threads will pop up that are either paid for or prompted by the respective BST providers.

    Personally, i'd like to see a list of BST's that have managed to survive Penguin. A poll would be good, or perhaps something on those lines.

    For now i'll sit back and see how this thread progresses and will post a BST service that I had used which did wonders for me. And yes, I will back it up with an excel sheet i'm using to monitor rankings (to be precise from Mid march onwards)

    Hello BHW

    Can I ask what is probably going to be a stupid question but, what is a BST ?

    Please be gentle :)

    BST stands for "Buy, Sell, Trade".
    In other words, its a sales thread.

    We have had success with high pr do follow links with varied anchor text and manual keyword/niche specific blog comments and obviously creating your own personal high pr network will work wonders :) or doing some quality and I stress the word quality web2.0 mini sites the days of shit links,articles are coming to a end. now automated quality will be the next big thing. If you want a service...get a va or don't be a lazy ass And take the time to do it yourself? Your really think $5-$50 will rank you for a decent keyword??

    most services on here IMO are worthless (notice I didn't say all bust most) if you want something done right do it yourself or provide specific instructions on how to do it right so you can outsource or train people. I will give a high five to some outsourcing companies on here :) just gotta provide directions like your telling a smart 10 year old how to do something.
