“This feedback by MrInvestor is a Deliberate attempt to malign our impeccable reputation on elance. He has done this "-ve feedback extrortion scheme" with several other providers. Check his History and Negative feedback he left for others. This seems a deliberate attempt to ruin reputation of many SEO companies on elance.
We work diligently on all projects and ensure that we send daily reports and weekly stats and work hard to improve ranking for all clients. All along all of this is on documented PMB and can be given to anyone who wants to see the results we got for this "Mrinvestor". This buyer tried to bully us into taking 6 more projects at dirt cheap prices. When we politely refused he left this negative feedback. See his job history, he has done this kind of negative feedback to atleast 8 companies by now.
About this feedback :
1. He did not pay "lot of money". He paid peanuts .. a Few 100$ over a span of a year, stopped paying after about 3-4 months, and still wanted us to continue & " maintain" work! the 3500 he speaks of was paid for 7 sites over a period of 1 year. He still Owes us $3500. and that's is what he is dodging to pay with this negative feedback! 2. All the 20 keywords we worked on WERE on Google Page 1, 7 in top 3, 10 in top 5 and 3 in top 10. What more could be done? what better results he could ask for? 3. This was a SEO project, How could he say " ZERO LEADS" .. we were not running a " lead generation" campaign, when we told him SEO is diffrent from LEADS he got angry! He demanded and directed that we generate leads for him!
3. We report each and every link in our daily reports, everyday for 6 months. He NEVER even once said anything about links, and suddenly says " 19 times" and "spam links". This is not based on the facts, and is just a wild allegation, without any substance.
4. AS for following directions, he changed scope of work so many times, changed keywords, changed his website content, uses duplicate content, does what he thinks is the best for SEO, un-does all our work and then makes us re-do all we did ! and all the time this is an extortionist attitude : do what I say or else I will leave negative feedback, and that's what he did.
5. He "DIRECTED" us to work on 6 more sites, in same fees, we did not follow that. This in fact was the reason for this feedback. If our work was not good, why has he given not 1 but 3 5** Feedback in Oct and Nov ? if our work was not good why the insistence to make more projects ? We did More work that was needed, and he infact acknowledged that in 3 5* feedback on Oct 26, 2011 saying " THIS GUY WILL SENT YOU REPORT DAILY. These guy will DO EVERYTHING STATE ON THERE BID. I have use over 5 seo companies on elance, and none of them have done 100% of what they promised. These guy will do what they say and fast! NOW, I AM NOT RATING THEM ON their SEO RESULT BECAUSE ITS ONLY BEEN ONE MONTH, but this feedback is for their professionalism and they went the extra mile." and after we poliely refused to work for **FREE** he Posted Negative feedback!
We Maintain High-quality of work and respect our clients, that is what prohibits us from saying more about this buyer. But for anyone curious, just ask and we will provide all work records.
He did what he could, we have learnt our lesson not to fall pray to such buyer and will like to advise other providers to not bid on such fake buyers projects!
