    I've ordered some huffpo type links recently. Expensive links. From here and elsewhere. Almost every single one I've had problems with. I'm always attentive in their needs of what they want so there is no messing around from my side. I literally give them everything that is needed and all they need to do is deliver. I appreciate shit happens and shit goes wrong, but see below

    First link had the wrong anchor text and was 20 days late
    Second had the wrong URL (a made up one) and was 5 days late
    Third was 2.5 months late
    4th still hasn't been delivered and is 18 days over their TAT
    5th has a TAT of 70 days!! Should be done soon
    6th was perfect and got done in 3 days and has had repeat business.

    If any sellers are looking, especially the ones I've bought from, read that last point again....

    It's not fucking difficult. Just do what you say you are gonna do.

    Finger at the ready for the Shit List if a refund isn't placed.

    U probably picked the wrong places to buy or just plain bad luck, im also selling similar services since 2011 and usually i deliver in 2-3 days. Faster delivery = more sales and happy custumers

    You are right they should not make promises they can't deliver on but remember with these types of links you're at the top of a long chain of people to get these on the website. Chinese whispers and all that.

    The url error is on the vendor, but anchor changes may be an editor's decision the vendor can't control. Premium links aren't just lying around waiting for somebody to buy them, and from what I've seen, often involve custom arrangements, or multiple third parties to access and approve them.

    Approval of the content, approval of the link, waiting time to get a lead from the publication confirming they even want certain niche content, etc, can complicate getting the link, or jeopardize the standing of the person who has access to the premium site. Since almost all the vendors are experiencing delays, the OP may be being unreasonable in demanding a definite TAT.
