Why Do Most Link Building Services Suck?

I've spent way too much money on Warrior and fiverr link-building packages. And looking back on all the money I spent, I've come to realize I didn't spend it, I wasted it.

Most all of these link packages don't work. Some are good but most aren't. And if they do work, you're always going to fear that those links (that you spent money on) will go BYE-BYE with the newest google updates! Or you're always in fear that google will penalize you for grey/black hat tactics!

This is NOT what internet marketing really is. I was fully immersed in this weird "link-building" buying OBSESSION frenzy for a couple years. I'd spend half the week saving my money to buy a $70 three tier, utra delux 300 links package and the rest of the month wondering why there are no results. It's been years since I purchased those packages. Waiting a couple years to see the results (like these link-building services tell you to do) didn't change anything.

I have used packages that boosted my rankings and got me on position 1 for keywords. BUT all of those results are gone now. And it's no coincidence.

The reason why these link-building services NEVER work long term is because they aren't meant to.

Sending fake links (what you buy with these packages) works short term but long term google figures it out. Google is smart. And they may not figure it out at first but they will eventually. Hence the tons of google updates that devastate many peoples online salaries.

Link building is not a complex process. You do not need complex software that costs hundreds per month to do it. You also don't need to hire useless workers from the Phillipines (I used to do this too)!

How do you build links? There are a lot of ways to do it but here's an easy one...

You create content on your website. You can optimize it for SEO but that shouldn't be your main focus.

The content is the most important part of your websites success. It must be engineered so that it connects to your audience and entertains and educates.

Websites and getting links is like high school. What did the most popular teachers do to have their students love them? it's high school so students naturally hate their teachers. What did these popular teachers do differently?

They had a unique personality and cared about their students. They connected with their students. To students class wasn't listening to a "boring lecture", it was listening to "Mr. X talk".

The same methods are used to get links to your website. Your content must do the following:

1. Connect with your audience
2. Entertain your audience (who likes boring things?)
3. Educate the hell out of them

When you have all these three things in your websites content (blog posts, videos, etc) people naturally link to your stuff (because they like it and are so excited they link to it)

Hence the birth of google (a search engine that sorts web pages based on how many links it has, treating links as "i like this" votes).

There are some link building packages that are great. But most of them are useless (garbage articles, useless web pages on web 2.0 that clutter the internet.....the only reason we see value in these things is because they bump is up in google) Google knows crap when it sees it. And this is the reason why doing SEO solely through link building packages isn't very effective.

Link packages can help your site rank better but should not be the sole source of links. If the only links your site can get are from fake web pages something isn't right.

    Ha sorry if that read too harsh.

    It's just weird how this "link building thing" really is the reason I couldn't get any results online. Instead of using my time productively and building powerful links, I spend it...

    --Learning new, very complex, very hard to understand link building software
    --Writing crappy articles just to get useless links(1 great article beats 100 crappy articles any day)
    --Coming up with more complex, more brain headache-making web 2.0 linking schemes (just thinking of it gives me a headache)
    --Signing up to forum after forum just to put an anchor text signature in your profile

    yes these links are not useful for the long term, but they definitely help.
    and if you didn't experience good results with them you must be doing it wrong.

    ALL the links that can be bought on WF or on Fiverr, etc are exactly what should be avoided today. It sickens me to see people not learning anything at all from these Google updates. Maybe short term gains are too hard to ignore ?

    SEO isn't dead, but "link building" pretty much is. That's the reason why there's so many "SEO is Dead" threads. It's because so many think SEO is all link building.

    REAL seo will continue to be around in the form of earning links rather than building them. Meanwhile, the search engines will continue chipping away at the overused and abused schemes, and the masses will jump on the next thing.

      I'll have to agree with "retsek" here. In my short span of SEO experience, i've always been against paying any money to obtain backlink. maybe if i'd enough money i might've paid for yahoo directory but i haven't.

      And buying fiverr gigs is ridiculously insane. i mean pointing thousands of links to your site in one day and nothing from the other day is just obnoxious. its like you're telling google to go ahead and penalize your site.

      I'm gonna scrap you from my list of people to listen to. Eat that!

      I rank clients over and over with my cheap packages, simply cause I know what I'm doing and it really isn't that hard to figure out.

      And yeah SEO = linkbuilding for the most part, as long as there is no juice flowing from back links you can change as many onpage factors as you like but nothing is gonna happen, yeah maybe you start to rank for some sh!tty keywords with 50 searches/month or something but that's it.

      Sure you can write engaging content but most people fail with that cause nr1 they are not a skilled/interesting writer and nr 2 they don't realize they need traffic from other sources first cause if they don't get visitors then how are people going to place links to a site that they don't know of. Chicken/egg stuff.

      So for a brand new site it's 100% about building/buying or achieving links in other ways.

      OP sure has a point though, 95% of the linkbuilding packages on this forum and on Fiverr are the next generation of poor setup private blog networks, or the usual link pyramids where the links in the next tier get worse and worse and thus not effective.

      People should educate their selves more before they buy a package.

          I would get rid of your 200 article submissions though, unless you use 20 unique articles and only submit to the top 10 sites. Otherwise it's pretty spammy and does hurt sites, oh and those 100 bookmarks are also not that good to point directly at the website. Free advice!

          Your relevant blog comments and forum posts is a good thing though when it's done by a native English person.

        Oh no, please don't

        What it all boils down is if your link profile can't pass a manual smell test by a Google employee, all you're doing is biding time until their algo is smart enough to do it for them. So many are still under the impression that there'll always be a radar to fly under.

      Oh good night. where is the exit :rolleyes:

      Link building is not dead. You should say blasting and spam links (and thats NEARLY dead not dead) but today and yesterday large , medium and small SEO companies continue to build links and rank.

      TO ALL -

      Heres why almost all link building services suck here. Lean close

      ITS YOUR FAULT.

      I've actually seen some good link building services at WF and you know how many customers they get? Very few. some none. they Vanish off the front page of WSOs without any interest

      Why?

      Because you want to hear a sexy link numbers like the word "thousand" and you want it fo nor more than $67 or $97 one time.

      Swear I am wrong? go ahead and start a WSO and say

      GET FOUR GREAT LINKS TO ROCKET YOUR SITE TO THE TOP Just $97

      and I bet you it will tank - with multiple people wondering aloud in the thread - what just five links? LOL .

      YOU are the market. IF you were willing to pay good money to get good link building done then the first guy that puts it out there you would come running and other sellers ( 90% of which are just copy cats) would start offering the same kind of services.

      Not to put down anyone but to be fair the other reason why WF doesn't see different kinds of link building is because its more time consuming than pushing a button on SenukeX and not enough people here are making anywhere near the money they claim to be. They just can't afford link building unless its from pushing a button.

      The third reason is that everyone wants a service where they have to do little or no work with it. Yep laziness. I get contacted by people all the time. Just last week a guy from WF ate up my time on skype. Worked out a plan for a network for him. Felt in a good mood gave him a great price within his stated budget. He then indicated that he not only wanted the lowest price I could give but he wanted us to add all the content he would need for any of his niches as well. I showed him the door.

        You missed the part where I said instead of "building" links, people should be "earning" them. Not that it makes a difference, you'd take the exit at the notion of earning links as well.

          :rolleyes: sigh......

          I can tell you don't have a clue about link building in the outside world So you draw all these erroneous conclusions. Also please Leave the prognosticating of what I would do to someone with some skills at fortune telling. You don't have a CLUE about what link building I do aside of whats in my sig and whats in one video thread which you still can't get.

          Would I exit at the notion of link baiting? Too silly. That IS content earning links and you will find threads about link baiting started by me YEARS AGO when people were still running around with forum profiles as the way to go.

          Heres a list for you to study before you say link building is dead. I'll give four of the top ways that professional SEOs STILL build links outside of just producing content

          1) they contact webmasters and create rapport and request links
          2) they BUY links
          3) They do three way exchange of links
          4) they contact sites that list Niche resources for inclusion

          TON loads of sites rank using just these four and they are all link building. None of them are sit back and wait for the links to come in techniques. None of them assumes a fantasy Kevin Costner world that if you build it they will come.

          Anyone that claims that link building is dead and all there is now is on page has not the first clue about the world of SEO

            So ..why didn't you create threads talking about those four things ? Instead you created one about spinning articles and using some crap automated submitter.

            I never said on-page is all there is. Who's making things up ?

            Look, 3 of the 4 items on your list are about earning links.

            Check my thread history
            http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...breakdown.html
            http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...ng-tactic.html

            I looked ..can't find your threads on link baiting. Have a link ?

              I'm not going to mince words with you any longer. You are a liar. You made that same accusation in the thread and then had to withdraw it because my videos are not about spinning articles - now here you are again making the same accusation you withdrew in the thread.

              Furthermore I have had multiple threads talking about those things.....well except buying links - you really need a primer on the idea behind that? . I don't answer to you. I used to get cursed out on this forum for advocating too much white hat things and the old time regulars know it even if you don't and no three way link exchanges are not base don content. You probably have no idea what that means or you would not claim that exchanges are content based.

              LOL at you still not getting my Use of Magic submitter. even though I have told you countless times that I add my own High Pr resources to it. So want to claim that its crap to get in context links from PR4 and PR 5 pages then be my guest. anyone in the know will know how crazy you are being. So I use MS to diagram and organize links? Get some imagination or don't. What do I care?

              I never said on-page is all there is. Who's making things up ?
              Ummm if link building is dead and there is only on page SEO and off page then what does that leave? You said it - content earning links.

              Look, 3 of the 4 items on your list are about earning links.

              Nope. Like I said go learn some more about them. There are lots of niche resources you can get added to and NOT have great content and you can build relationships with webmasters where they give you links because of the relationship not the site.

              I looked ..can't find your threads on link baiting. Have a link ?
              Can't teach you how to use the search functions too now can i? You are a waste of time . I can't even be bothered. When someone lies then has to withdraw the lie only to come back in another thread and repeat the lie its time for them to just be ignored for awhile.

        It's funny you mention this cause once I build out my network even more I was thinking about offering a package with 4-5-6 links for pretty damn cheap, but right now I already notice that the less links I offer, the less sales I make, oh well it's holiday season now so can't say much about it, but I'm really curious how my new sales thread that I'm planning will work out with only a handful of links

        A short time ago I already had several occasions where we didn't have high PR links yet, that a client said hmmm the links still haven't done anything, and normally I say give it some time and it does always kick in but it takes like forever. Now I said to her, okay I'll give you a free PR4 link, I just setup the site so here it comes. Less then a week later the keyword moved to #2. Enough said!

    1) Non-NATIVE Professional English speaking link builders
    2) I know a lot of services on WF, DP, BHW, etc. that still think 10,000 links pointed to your site in 1 day will be helpful.
    3) Yes.

    Things work as they always did, but in proper proportion. One trick a million times used to work. Now that is obvious and problematic. Hiring those who don't care about your big picture will never help (and none of them care). Clearly you learned the basic language of it all in hiring. Just do it yourself and test. Feed a man a fish and feed him for a day, Teach yourself how to fish, well you know.

    I just want to sell some wrinkle cream. I dont think people with wrinkles want an engaging wrinkle website with lots of quality wrinkle articles, they want some wrinkle cream.

    And trying to write a wrinkle article that is better than any other wrinkle article is too stressful and would cause me premature wrinkles.

    I just want to sell wrinkle cream and maybe look at some nsfw sites, so I build backlinks.

      Why would anyone buy wrinkle cream from you? It's better for society that you don't sell wrinkle cream. You might give people cancer.

      You are not even educated about the subject enough to come up with content ideas let alone engaging articles.

      Stop thinking of content in terms of articles. Content in this niche would be a questionnaire so people understand what skin type they have. Content can also mean a case study with real live examples and video tutorials.

      If you're not up for that then don't try to sell wrinkle cream.

      Treat it like a real business. Roll up your sleeves and produce real content not crappy articles. Stop making excuses for your failures.

        Who said anything about failures? And who are you, AL Gore? You don't own the net nor do you decide who gets to sell what based on your criteria.

        A case study for wrinkle creams? OK how bout this...

        Jane is 40, she smoked her whole life and tanned frequently. We offered Jane a 30 day supply of Wrinkle away. After 30 days, Jane was so happy that she was at least trying to get rid of her wrinkles, she decided to pay us $90 per month for more Wrinkle away. Unfortunately, Jane's wrinkles didn't go away. After 40 years of hard living she is screwed...but take a look at these photoshopped before and after pics and get your free 30 day trial today.

        Is that good?

        And trust me, it's better for society that I do sell wrinkle cream...lol.
        let me show you just how educated I am when it comes to wrinkle creams

        1 wrinkle cream sale @$30 commission > 0 wrinkle cream sales
        Huh? Hows that for educated?

    I dunno about most link building services here on WF on whether they are truly ranking for keywords (medium-tough) for their own sites but I'm using my own packages/services to rank my own sites.

    But for those thinking, "if you can use your own services to rank your own sites why do you sell your services here?"

    Answer to that is: Side-income.

    So to OP's question, most link building services here suck is because of

    1. Their methods aren't tested and proven (because they are not even ranking their own sites)
    2. Your link porfolio is bad
    3. Your onpage seo is bad

    Obvious a $100 package or anything of that size won't rank for medium/tough keywords. Sure we can argue about what medium competitive is but kw's with 50% competition level according to SEOmoz won't move to page one after a single link package.

    If it was all that easy then the professional SEO companies wouldn't be charging $6000+/year as a minimum.

    Sorry I didn't read you said for their own sites with the same kind of packages. I have my own private network so medium kw's shouldn't be a problem. Tough not sure, for me a kw like "mortgage" is a tough one, I won't be able to rank such keyword without risking to lose my whole network.

    You need to learn to choose them wisely, usually there is no all in one solution (as expected) so these offers alone wont make all of your ranking process.

    remember there are hundreds of factors regarding serps, and it could get down to on page seo for example.

    I think most people buy link building packages thinking they are going to scam-the-system...

    A lot of link salesmen, if that's a word, make you think that more and more links are the 'win button' for Google traffic.

    Really, after you start with and idea/niche, then get your keywords in order, you need to focus on quality. Make it easy for your users to share your information, and make your information good enough to share.

    Link packages are good for getting indexed, but they are not the answer to overcome a crappy site with useless content.

    I guess it's a matter of keeping it in context.

    Simple really. You get what you pay for. Real SEO campaigns for competitive ish keywords I believe need a decent budget of $800 minimum. You want links that will stand the test of time, relevant, from an authorative domain, links that usually cost $100+

    Fiverr links, web2.0 sooner or later will die. It's like getting a vote from a brand new website, no credibility whatsoever. No wonder many sites don't rank after a fiverr campaign.

    We have an insurance client with a budget of $1,500 and the reason why I'm able to show positive movement and results is because we're re investing 70% of it. Initially we're taking less profit but you can see what type of budget you need. Good links cost money.

      Yeah I have to agree with this as well. When you want links at real authority sites you pay a price, and that is not some $20 for an incontext link at some IM platform, but those cost REAL money.

      Textlinkbrokers easily charges $50+/month for a rented homepage link for example. I rent out similiar links for much less, which are still strong and a low number of outbound links but obvious not as legit as from a REAL website that exists for many years and such sites aren't once bought as an expired domain.

      Obvious these kind of high priced links are not so sure over kill but it just doesn't fit in the budget of people who target specific affiliate products where they get paid a few % (Amazon) or some "crappy" Adsense website that would make like $50/month at it's best.

      But when you run some finance company or another business with $100K+/revenue or profit a year then it's worth it, not the kind of sites that we IM'ers are after.

    Great share here.

    Link building can be outsourced, but I strongly recommend for anyone looking to outsource link building that they hire someone to do it for them full-time.

    Purchasing link of Fiverr is a essentially a waste of money. Most of the link-builders there are novices and don't know much about SEO at all.

    The links created may be of some use as tier-2 links (for indexing purposes), but they bring almost no SEO juice to the money site itself, even if they point directly to the site.

    If the link builders generating links from high pr website along with do follow tag then the link building is meaning full. I will advise you to do manual submission don't go with any kinda automated software for building links else google will treat it as spamming.

    Pm me i will mail you some quality link builders details with low price
