Should SEO Co provide stats on their link prog?

 5:49 am on Feb 10, 2007 (gmt 0)

I have hired an SEO company, and today I asked them to show me how well their "Links Program" was helping my site.

They threw a lot of stats at me, but when I asked them to show me what sites were linking to me as a result of their efforts, they were unable to do show me any!

They claimed they don't normally even look for such results!

Does this make sense?

Have they explained their link-building method? What did they agree to provide as part of the "links program"? Need more info.

Hi Sharpseo

They said they would "Establish a custom link-tracking report" and that their reporting would provide "status of pending link requests"

Wouldn't the average website owner assume that the above promises
would mean they could tell me what links to my site were generated by there efforts?

Is it unusual for SEO companies to provide evidence of links generated?

Hey dude...that company is BSing you...no doubt at all.

Yes, any company that provides link building at a service should have a list of all the links that they have acquired for you...

I mean come on...what if they were selling you page optimization and they told you they cant show you what they have done?

Find another company or do it yourself (or hire someone)

You get what you pay for when it comes to buying link building as service...

You need to look elsewhere for link building services.

Links are public knowledge. heck, run you rown reports.

If they can't show you where they placed your links, then they didn't place any. Or they are hopelessly unprofessional.

They shouldn't be called an SEO Company at all.

I recommend shift the company or stop the service from them.

As Link building being a very sensitive process for any website - they knowing nothing about their effects- can get your site into trouble.

Move on!
