I am always amazed at how bad some of the requests posted by “Buyers” are but this one has hit an absolute low. All of the “write 20 articles for $5” or “proofread 50,000 words for $5” (but it will be ongoing work so it is “worth it”) have paled into insignificance when I saw this one today.
“Pay By Results SEO I am actually looking for someone that is good at websites and SEO and is prepared to be paid by results. If you get this right - it could generate quite a good potential income on a monthly basis. TO BE VERY CLEAR ABOUT THIS PROPOSAL - IT IS ; PAY BY RESULTS ON SUCCESS”
The above was posted today with an attachment that gave further details.
Basically, they want a seller to create a website on a particular niche, do SEO work and get visitors to the site and IF the site starts making money then they will pay the seller up to 30% of the profits. They even give the option for the seller to buy the domain and hosting themselves to “get a slightly bigger percentage of the profits”.
It scares me to think that there may be people stupid enough to think that people would actually do this. It scares me more to think that perhaps, maybe, somewhere, there may be someone who is actually stupid enough to do this!
Please, people of the world, please don’t be this stupid, or at least TRY to hide it if you are!
