    I just started out hiring some guys for some basic stuff like manual blog comments.
    So i went out and posted that i need a job done, so a guy from pakistan sent me a proposal, i accepted it after checking out his reviews, as they weren't that bad at all.

    So i said him he should do 100 unique manual blog comments related to the topic with low obl within 20 hours.

    So after almost 2 days he sent me a report where he just scrapeboxed that entire thing with spun comments like: very nice site, i really like it, you have done a great job here, thank you very much, i really appreciate that post; and with 5000 outbound links and i am just thinking:

    wtf is going on ? i have to be really careful on those platforms, lol.

    i was batting 1000 with outsourcing...until recently. the same freelancer i've been using for various jobs, totally scammed me. and the strange thing is, either the person has multiple personalities, or i'm now corresponding with a completely different person from before! originally, the person wrote perfect english, and now that things have turned sour, it seems like i'm getting messages from Borat Sagdiyev.

    I've seen this a lot lately and this is why I either am going to do the manual stuff myself or outsource it to only highly reputable link builders within the industry. Even the auto stuff I'm going to be doing myself very soon simply because I've wasted too much time with freelancers and that has brought me to a point to where I'm fed up with it all.
