It was really nice, but he had no clue what to do with it. Since he was friend of a friend of a friend, I told him that I would get it to page one on Google, blah, blah, blah for $100.
Took about 2 weeks but it made it to the very very tippy top.
Getting him to pay was like pulling teeth. Measly $100. Who woulda thought?
I did not want to delete the video but told him I would if payment wasn't received by the noon on the 24th (yesterday). He had my paypal link but I sent it again anyway.
Woke this morning, checked paypal. No payment. Went to delete it, but just "unlisted" it instead.
I wan't sure what effect that would have since I never did that before, but it was gone from the search results within 5 minutes.
I then sent an email to let him know that it was over.
(There was actually much more correspondence throughout. Actually a ridiculous amount. Definitely not worth the $100 fee. Yep, if I could've done it all a bit differently...)
Within 10 minutes my phone rang. It was him, apologizing, saying that he went ahead and paid. I told him that I would see if "Google would accept a resubmission".... I made that up on the spot, but really didn't know what would happen if I went back in and took it off unlisted status.
So I did just that, and checked periodically. About 2 hours later, it was back on page one again, like nothing ever happened.
I did lots of stuff wrong, but who would have thought I'd have so much trouble with a jeweler?
Lesson learned, but as far as the unlisting trick -- good to know huh?
