“I used them in the past (2012) and they did a good job. I hired them this year (2013), only to find out that they have become extremely backwards in their SEO skills. They wrote and spun poorly written articles, spammed direct links to my site, placed non-sensical keywords in every heading around my site, making it illegible, and "manually" placed thousands of comments on sites that are no-follow, or completely not-related to subject matter, making it a clear case for penalty by Google. In fact, their services are so old and blackhat, it would be a good a idea to hire them to SEO my competitors, so they get pennalized and banned from the search engines.”
“We had worked with Cristiano for a long time and given satisfactory results for his first project and on the basis of those results he given us another opportunity, but Google keeps on changing its strategies and algorithms from time to time and we have to follow the strategies accordingly to get the results. However, the client was STUCK WITH THE OLD LINK BUILDING STRATEGIES and WANTED TO TARGET ALL THE KEYWORDS FROM A SINGLE URL i.e. http://rioforpartiers.com/rio-quick-guide/ that is not possible as per the recent updates. We perform all our exercises ”
“We had worked with Cristiano for a long time and given satisfactory results for his first project and on the basis of those results he given us another opportunity, but Google keeps on changing its strategies and algorithms from time to time and we have to follow the strategies accordingly to get the results. However, the client was STUCK WITH THE OLD LINK BUILDING STRATEGIES and WANTED TO TARGET ALL THE KEYWORDS FROM A SINGLE URL i.e. http://rioforpartiers.com/rio-quick-guide/ that is not possible as per the recent updates. We perform all our exercises ¿manually¿ and as per the guidelines use variations in the anchor texts and also make some ¿no-follow¿ links in order to look this as natural link building practice and to avoid spamming but client¿s focus was on QUANTITY rather than QUALITY. We had tried so many times to convince the client to go with our strategies in order to get the results but all was in vain, however we putted our best efforts there to show results and we had given as well but to maintain the same we or another service provide requires the complete co-operation and support of their clients. Also, the dispute was closed in our favor and just to make our company¿s image down, Cristiano, has given the negative feedback. We have no grudge with this client, ups and downs are the part of business and every person has its own perception. We have full trust on our expertise and serving our clients with the best services till date and will continue to deliver satisfactory results by adding new milestones with our team. WE RECOMMENDED OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER TO TAKE HIS PROJECT ON OWN RISK!!!

“Very disappointed with Robert`s attitude: we agreed on a project that was supposed to improve my convertion ratio. He set a 4 week timeline. after 5 weeks of getting stuck on various snags (they always come up, so no blame there) he wanted to get paid, despite not having achieved the goal of 300% sales convertion improvement.
We discussed for 2 hours, he didnt budge on his view that he needed to get paid because time had passed, while I didnt think it was fair to pay as he had not achieved the goal we agreed on. I got tired of running in circles over skype and decided it would be cheaper to pay for his half-done work and start anew with someone else.
Usually elance workers stick with the project till the customer is satisfied. Not this one. Unbelievable!”
“I'm a little upset at Cristiano's reaction to this situation. During this project he asked me to do extra work that wasn't part of what we agreed on and I was happy to help out.
I'm being held responsible for events that were caused by errors he had made with Google before I came on board (my job was only to build a landing page btw, not to provide PPC management)
Long story short, Cristiano wanted to pay me on straight commission. When I reminded him that's not what we agreed on, he got angry and now has given me a poor rating.
There's not much to say here. I try to be very careful about who I work with to avoid these types of situations but sometimes I misjudge people.
To any potential employers reading this:
Please understand that I cannot work for free or on commission only. I have a family to support and I believe I should be fairly compensated for my work. If you agree with this, then let's talk :)”
Guiderer.com is a site that lets anyone create a travel guide for any destination. The guide creator chooses a city, then lists the points of interest, and the system then finds images, addresses and maps.
We now need the user to:
1) choose a cover image for the guide they are creating. the image suggestions should be pulled from google images.
