    I'm curious to know as I never seen a seller show a full report over a longer period of time. They always post the report that shows a few days and then it peaks and the report stops. What happened after that peak rise in the SERPs, what happened in the next 7-10 days.. I don't see how this is even an issue, most of these threads go on for quite a bit so there's plenty of time to get a few of these reports in.. I always feel like people are trying to hide something.

    For one seo providers on here charges so low as it is, to now do full diagnostic and 30 days report on client will triple what they charging as it is.For individual buying on here has to do their own statistical report in my own opinionJust be happy you getting decent service on here at affordable rates

    The trouble into going through that old clients and getting the reports again is too much.

    We're talking 2-3 not all of them. Provider plugs client's site/keywords into SERP checker, comes back 7 days to post it after service is done. Makes one more click comes back 30 days and posts it again. It's not like they have to beg clients for a review again.. The reason I ask this is because after 7-10 pages in a thread, negative reviews start pouring out sometimes after people start seeing major drops in the rankings after 20-30 days later.. I mean people leave positive glowing reviews like keyword #1 from 94 > 10 after a few days of seeing results, but it doesn't mean anything if two weeks later you go back to 94 or worse.. So how can people really even trust those reviews if it's not really being tested fully..

    You do have some point but let me remind you seo is a continuous process and some buyers think one seo package will catapult them to page one. You might have initial boost but ya need to keep ontop of things. As I said seo services here is a lot cheaper so basically ya get what ya paid. If a service gives ya a boost don't stop at that keep building more. Hope I make some sense so tired today lol

    You make complete sense. I could see a ranking failing from someone not building more links, so I can also see why determining which is the real factor would be difficult. It's a tough thing for me to deal with it since I want the absolute best in quality, yet in order to get that I'll spend $10K/month at some firm. Or I can take the project on myself, pay $100/month on forums, yet I lose my time. There's really no in-between, too many uneducated and glorified salesmen. I haven't slept either, lol about to head home and go to bed.

    I had the same problem, well I still have it. The review part of the SEO BSTs is horrific. I mean most of the people are throwing in 10 days reviews which in my opinion are useless. Most of the SEO services are doomed from the start, and many will get your website hurt in the long run.

    I personally think that SEO must be tailor made not sold as a package, well for the long runners at least. Most of the services are offering fixed numbers of jumpin'jacks which may not be suitable for most of the websites. Overoptimizing was the step that many tripped over, because their niches were not aggressive, and they've built aggressively.

    You need the fine tuning factor, if you want to stay in the game, and you need a monthly service that you can rely on.

    There are many people here on BHW who really know their shi.t, some top notch SEO services also, all you have to do is find them and make a deal, BUT you also must know what you need. At least point them in a direction.
