Folks,

I was so excited using SEO Services WSOs and did enough damage to my site which was already top ranked. Now pushed down to 100+ pages.

Can you guys please suggest some SEO service that really worked for you?

    Sorry to hear that, but if you've asked on the SEO forum and listened only to the guys who seem to know their SEO I'm sure there would've been no illusion about those WSOs.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

        That's a part of the problem. Copied lists of garbage are easy to spot, but there's people who are phenomenally misinformed.

        One of the reasons why SEO isn't easy is that the buyer also has to know something about it in order to get good results. Well, much of IT is actually like that too.

    It's a shame that you had that experience.

    I have never seen a good SEO service in the WSO section. There might be one in there somewhere, but most will do more harm than good, like what you experienced.

    The bad news is that recovery is pretty difficult. It is not impossible, but it is also far from a sure thing.

    I dont think so that a SEO service can do harm in a website. I will suggest you to do SEO for your self and to a better way to take your website in search engines.

      Why don't you think that? It's really easy... You hire someone on Fiverr to point 50k forum links at your homepage... Takes only $5 and a couple of minutes, if you don't have a Fiverr account, less if you do.

        Just flag the post. And while you're at it, report their entire post history that matches the same stupid spam trick.

        Several problems with this approach. First, if you've got time to do SEO for yourself you're either very lucky or doing something seriously wrong. Most entrepreneurs just don't have time to learn something that's so foreign to their core business.

        Second, even if your customers are really satisfied only very small percentage are doing anything that's going to have an effect on your SERP rankings. It's very unlikely that you're able to undo any serious damage this way.

    You must never use black hat techniques for getting ranks in SERPs. They would give you initial results but will hit you hard in the long run.
    Things you can do to better rank your website:
    1) Make sure that your web content/blog content is unique and not copied.
    2) Your urls are seo friendly
    3) Keywords have to be rightly chosen and distributed throughout the website
    4) Create unique titles for each page with the rightful keywords

    There are other aspects too.

      That is unreasonable and frankly just stupid advice. By that account, you also should never hire a lawyer if you are in legal trouble. Just defend yourself. Do not hire an accountant to take care of your taxes. Just learn how to do taxes yourself. Never hire a copywriter. Just learn how to do effective copywriting yourself.

        You have good points in there, and with those points I agree. But since the fellow is here, he's here in Warrior Forum, it shows that he has some knowledge about SEO. I am suggesting that he try doing it himself even just for now (I'm sorry for saying the word "forget"). I mean, just for now so he can figure out how he became a victim of those unscrupulous SEO practitioners. Then, after he has acquired enough knowledge about SEO, then he will be more wiser to choose which good service to hire.

    Most of the good SEO providers aren't here anymore or stopped offering there services due to the unreasonable competition of quacks.

    Mike Friedman is still one of the best in here.

    Did the SEO "guru" blasted several thousand links to your money site? You should be really careful and don't pay for services to your MAIN site... Or at least first try with a blog or something else!

    "Satisfied customers, through their testimonials will help you regain your popularity among people, and then among search engines." - This got to be one of the biggest SEO nonsense ever spouted. SEO is not magic, just because a lot of people like a company does not mean that Google will magically rank them upwards.

    I'm sorry to hear that you got penalized, but let's be honest, WSOs are relatively 'cheap' because they don't provide effective and long-lasting SEO results. If a SEO provider is so confident and has the track record to back up their SEO results, they would not be charging so low. Just like a top lawyer won't charge dirt cheap prices, a good SEO provider will not too.

    Your best choice is to work with a SEO company / consultant that actually has a real world business and make a living providing SEO services. Taking services from people (e.g. WSOs) who hide behind screens with no real business/companies is a surefire way to fail at SEO.

    You must have made the mistake of hiring any newbie that couldn't deliver..

    Ask him nicely what exactly he did and may be you can un-do the damage up to some extent..
