Okay, Mr. Fiverr SEO Genghis Khan, let’s just put some perspective on this matter.
Can a website get to the no.1 spot on Google after buying any kind of SEO gig? No, of course not.
As for all SEO gigs being a pile of tripe. I offer services which can and do help websites increase their rankings. Will you see an improvement tomorrow? No. In fact, I sell gigs every day to people who obviously have no idea how to use what I am providing them with.
I write genuinely engaging content and have a pretty spectacular knack for including longtail keywords and the like which search engines can and do pick up. The only problem is that they and my video services only work if whoever is administering a website knows what they are doing.
Sadly, most of the people I work with don’t have a clue how SEO works. The majority of my clients on Fiverr think “hey, let’s get some backlinks, an SEO sales copy and lets roll!” Worse, the majority of such clients are resellers who are misrepresenting themselves to their original buyers as SEO experts but don’t have the slightest idea in regard to what they are actually doing or paying people for.
Case in point. I had a buyer today who wanted 30 keyword phrases (which he supplied) cramming into 100 words of ‘natural & engaging’ content. Sorry, not going to happen I even said this and cited the fact that the website in question would likely be penalised by Google. Did the buyer listen? No?
You are asking sellers to learn what SEO is? Well, Mr. SEO Selfrighteous, reputable sellers who you probably pass by because they are too expensive do know how SEO works.
Yes, it’s an ongoing process, but are you actually prepared to invest in gigs on a weekly or monthly basis wich will help you gradually increase your SEO ranking? Or is your beef here the fact that you aren’t getting full and ongoing SEO support for $5 a time?
In short. A website owner and/or administrator will know how SEO works. They will then come to Fiverr and buy the gigs they need to boost their rankings. If buyers don’t know how SEO works, that’s their fault. In this case, be a responsible and astute buyer, not one which expects miracles for $5.
