I found this amusing. Even reputable companies have been caught out by unscrupulous “black hat” backlinking services which promise quick delivery of thousands of incoming links. Unfortunately, this is the result—spammy solicitations and low-quality, often computer-generated verbiage detracting from everyone’s experience of the Internet.
In SEO, as in most things, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. The “secret” to SEO is no secret at all: produce high quality content that people will want to read, and get it out where your target audience will see it. A reputable SEO service can help you create a strategy, identify resources, and tailor your content more effectively, but be wary of anyone who promises you instant front page ranking!
