The moment you paid some SEO person $100 to start promoting your site is the moment you started digging your own grave with your own shovel, and why did you do this? because you are too cheap to buy a quality link that has authority for $100, and you wanted that $100 to go as far as it could go, but it doesn't, and this is where your downfall starts....
Legit SEO is not one size fits all, no sir, sorry. SEO should be custom fit to each size, and that is because SEO is not a one size fits all, and if you use these type of SEO providers, then sooner or later, and probably later, you will just end up cleaning up the mess of spammy backlinks.
- Your SEO should be customized for your site.
- Your need to audit your link profile once/twice per month.
- Your site will also attract natural link spam.
- Your competitors are link spamming you...
You are wondering why your traffic has taken a noise drive, and this could be for several reasons, and one of those reasons is link spam, it does not matter if you did it or not, and Google does not care about who did it, and it is your responsibility to keep your link profile clean.
Let me guess, you just paid an SEO provider $100 to building links around your money keywords; Using an excessive amount of money keywords is very bad!! Google will dump all over you, and not even bother to wipe!!! I have seen sites rank very high, and using very few money keywords, why? Because Google is looking for:
Without these 3 qualities, you are doomed! When it comes to link building, Google loves diversity as there is nothing natural about using money keywords over, over, and over, as a result, this leads to low quality, and just because you have no warnings in webmaster tools does not mean anything, and your analytics tell you everything you need to know.
Now that we have established that you are cheap with backlinks, now we turn to your low-quality content of 300-500 words that nobody wants, not even Google, and this could be bad design, low-quality content that is just hashed out everywhere else on the internet.
Setting up a website is like setting up a business. If you use cheap services to start your business, then it will never get off the ground, and I mean ever as in never.
Take it from someone who earns a six-figure income. I have to clean up 100s of spam links every month, from countries all over the world, including India. Some people think your site may be cool, or they could be giving bad links on purpose. Just because you get a backlink does not mean it will be helpful, in fact, those bad links will certainly hurt rankings for sure.
Some people say that SEO is dying, and that is not the case, those SEO providers that can not pull their weight in gold are the ones that are dying, and I do not use them anymore. I think people are starting to wake up and realize that cheap SEO providers no longer work, and they have not worked for some time, however, people continue to use them.
and this reminds me of another post. You have something they can provide, but they provide you with nothing, not only did they harm your site, now they have your money, and they still claim to be the #1 SEO provider because they have been around for a few years. One thing is for sure, just because they have 100s or 1000s of reviews because their bad practices worked 5 or 10 years ago does not mean it works today.
Google is looking greatness, and it may not be you!!!
Is it starting to click yet?
How much did you pay for your last backlink?
I paid $150 for mine for real authority, not some PBN
site you find on fiverr bloated with a high spam score....
SEO is far from dead....
You just have to use SEO correctly...
and you will bloom into a wonderful flower.....
unless you like being a black rose, full of stink and death...
