This is just a post about the ridiculousness of some people’s expectations when it comes to SEO.
1. No SEO Seller is going to give you a “Magic Trick” that will mean you earn $1000s for doing no work (Cost $5).
This “secret sauce”, “guaranteed method”, “simple to use”, etc method is a myth that some unscrupulous sellers both on and off Fiverr have put out there - it doesn’t exist.
2. Asking me to work on your behalf with the promise of paying me when you make money is beyond ridiculous.
If this was a possibility, why would I involve you at all? I could just as easily spend the same 20 minutes you did on copying and spinning other people’s content, work on the SEO and then take the full earnings, rather than relying on you (a random, anonymous person on the internet) to give me 10-40% of the profits.
3. The popular saying “SEO takes time” does not mean we do a little work then sit back and wait
So many sellers and buyers say/believe that a small investment in SEO work is enough and then you just need to wait a month for the effect. This is rubbish - on Fiverr, all that will do is ensure you cannot complain to CS about a seller as the 30 day limitation will be over. SEO is an ongoing process that takes consistent effort over time.
4. No one-off service will be effective enough over time
Even if you spend thousands and manage to get a site ranking at number 1, there is no guarantee it will stay there. Think about it - if you displace someone at number 1, what are they going to do? Sit there and accept it? Obviously not - they will double up their efforts, possibly even attempt some negative SEO etc. Ultimately, ranking is an ongoing competition or league table and you need to compete consistently to perform well.
5. The saying “Content is king” is true - nobody wants to see rubbish content.
If people do not like your content, Google notices. Regardless of how many (good) links etc you have, if people do not like your content then the site will not rank well on a consistent basis. User Behavior is an extremely powerful ranking factor these days so when I tell you your content is not good enough, I mean it in the nicest possible way but seriously, if it is rubbish then do something about it.
Phew, I feel better now, do you?
