I built a site for a client of mine a few years ago. Now she has been stepping up her promotion. Somehow she found someone offering a backlink service. Here’s a description of their service:
The manual backlink service is for 2,200 backlinks. I develop 5 titles and descriptions for your website rich with your relevant keywords and then submit them to business directories under the travel section. The one way backlinks give you a huge boost in Google and is 100% whitehat.
Is there anything that my client should be concerned about if she decided to use this service?
To me, it sounds a spammy and I worry that it could potentially backfire on my client, getting her banned or demoted in the SE’s.
I’d love to get some opinions on what to advice my client to do.
Personally, I would relay to your client new methods to promote her site, build backlinks, etc. by involving her in a simple daily promotion task list. It is obvious that this “backlink service” is a hoax, your client will benefit so much more and achieve richer results in the long run by being hands on.
Typical. People spouting off on things they know nothing about, espeically clueless noobs on message boards.
this seem to be a new offer promotioni
Uhhh, where does it say that?
Do you people post crap, just to post?
Eric, many such services are legit.
They have a long list of Webmasters, with GOOD sites, in their directories (or otherwise known as database files) who either would like to exchange links with other Webmasters or they sell space in their sites.
DavesDaily to this day still exchanges links with other Webmasters.
I appreciate your dissenting opinion. Unfortunately I do not know the company’s name that she is dealing with. I did let her make her own decision in this matter, but provided my own opinion and also opinions provided here to help her reach a decision.
