    I've been buying article spreading from different websites for years now. Some are good...and you keep buying from them again and again.

    But sometimes you try a new company...and I just had the worst experience I've ever had in my life with a new one (who shall remain unnamed...and it's NOT a company that can be found in BHW).

    I ordered about 25x article submissions...and the idiots created user accounts with my real name!

    Sure, I probably should have used a fake name/email address in ordering the article submissions...but I have never before experienced an SEO company that's dumb enough to use a real name for user accounts before...I am so pissed.

    Even worse, contacting them for support results in nothing...no response.

    There are a lot of crummy SEO companies out there...beware!

    P.S. When the order is finished, and I receive the login details to all the article marketing sites, I'll probably have to go to each one and change the username myself, manually :(

    So what? Should we create a thread everytime we piss on our pants rather than to the hole?

    Yeah, I guess the whole point of my thread is not too obvious.

    I actually want to find out from everyone else if they also find that what this company did is incredibly stupid (i.e.: creating username accounts with my real name!)

    That is pure stupidity to ever consider putting the clients name on a product unless it was requested by them.

    I've had a terrible experience lately with a team who did a great job on one of my sites in the past. It's been a big time headache!

    Pretty much I paid him for onpage/offpage for a brand new site ($1k for first month), and a back links campaign on old site ($230)...

    It seems as if he spent all the money and did not have the funds to pay his team to do the work. The only thing hes completed in two months is about 1/2 of the on page process. I am considering disputing the payments, but at the same time I don't want this guy to try and ruin my business or something..
