Trusting SEO people...

So I pay someone money to build links for my site, and he doesn't tell me where the high quality links are. It seems to work, my SERP improves.... however, it's my site, not his, and I care a lot more about making sure it doesn't get blacklisted.

I have a hard time trusting link builders that they are going to do things the right way and not get me in trouble with Google. All of this risk is mine and there is seemingly no way to pick out the high quality SEO providers from the spammers.

He should be able to tell you anything you know as long as you are paying him. Good that the work is getting done but you have a right to know what is going on since it is your site.

You need to ask for a link report of sites where your link now appears. You can't simply take their word for it.

Agreed. What kind of professional SEO doesn't provide reports and record their work? I say run, fast..

Even I agree admin. As I am also link builder, I provide report of each link to my employer that I have made.

Every person who asks someone to work for him will ask for a link report, could be from notepad or spreadsheet, containing all URLs with your site links in them. This is the only way you can check if he is doing the designated work, or not.

He does not sound that good to me. I would not pay him if he were not going to show me what I wanted to see. You have a right to know.

I completely understand why this has been done. Many professional SEO's have spent years building up networks of Link sources that are very high quality links. An example could be a huge high PR blog network with unique quality content on. Many SEO's would not want to make this public for fear of sabotage, stealing content, there are many reasons. If your rankings have improved, then they have provided what you have paid for. If the links were spammy, your rankings wouldn't have improved!

However, they should always make this clear in their sales page and then the decision is up to you if you want to buy or not. Usually their is a mix of links and a report will be provided for the ones that are not part of their own network source

Hi Mike, yes I agree with you and feel exactly the same way. If you have found any answers yet - or somebody you can really trust please let me know. I am scared to use somebody for this very reason but on the other hand have virtually zero links to my site - so not sure what to do really?

Some tips: STAY AWAY FROM: ScrapeBox Blast and Auto Approved Blog Comments.
Also, DON'T BUY BACKLINKS FROM WHO CAN NOT PROVIDE YOU FULL REPORT AND CAN'T ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.
We ALWAYS provide FULL REPORT and build manually backlinks (except for XRumer Backlinks) on high authority page.
You can check with your eyes the quality of links looking the report and scanning every single links (of course if you want) and see the PR of website that have your link back.

BE AWARE FROM PEOPLE THAT BUILD LINKS ON FAKE PR WEBSITE.
IT WILL KILL YOUR RANK!!!

But if you are paying for the service, then he should be able to tell you whatever you want to know.

I agree if you are paying for the service, however only up to a point as regards the service being provided, however if sensitive questions are being asked for example as to the techniques being used etc the seller in my opinion has every right to refuse to provide that information.

That's already happen for some buyer, always report when somethings wrong.

How could we know if the service provider is using this method?

Hello Tommy Matalino,
for first check out some reviews of other customers.
Second, make sure your provider will provide you a FULL REPORT with ALL LINKS that he build for you.
Check all links and make sure the PR are REAL.
See if there are any redirect, because if there is, these links are getting rank from other website, so if the redirect will removed, the website will back to original rank (much bad for you...).
If you have some backlinks that s0x, Google have build a tool in Google WebMaster that allow you to remove BAD BACKLINKS, so Google will not count it.
The SEO is important and with last updates of Google, if someone fail, your website will go to the heaven!
BUY FROM TRUSTED AND EXPERTS PEOPLE, DON'T GIVE YOUR MONEY TO THE FIRST "SEO GURU" THAT WALK AROUND THE WEB.

Just my suggestions :-)

Whenever I do SEO backlink building (on forums/blog comments) or blogs as part of a linkwheel, I'm required to provide a spread sheet containing a list of the pages where the links appear as well as any login details (such as for forum or blog accounts). That way the client can not only check the links but also own the blog/forum account where I posted the link.

Ask others for a recommendation to a reliable SEO backlinking provider. This person should have good references from other buyers who have used his service. In this way, you are likely to find a reliable person to do the job you really want.

That’s one issue when hiring a person to do the online work for you. It is usually that you don’t know the virtual assistant or the specialist personally so you are at his mercy when it comes to information. I guess you had hired a wrong person for that because it’s not just the results that matters. What if he is using bots? Sooner or later your site will suffer. Anyway, maybe you can rescind the contract to give you time to think more about it.
