Do you know what links is your hired SEO company building?

A friend called me today and said that he is not happy with the results of his hired SEO company, after paying for 4 months for link building services. He had no clue about what SEO means, he was actually asking me if I provide SEO services, but I don’t have the time anymore.

Luckily, he had a Monitor Backlinks premium account, and he got notified when he started to get links from Asian countries and porn websites.

Hacked links

When I checked his account, I saw hundreds of links from hacked websites (using GET URL variables), porn websites and so on…

Black hat links


He asked for a report on all the acquired links from that SEO company, and when he got it, he sent it to me. I just imported all the links, had a quick look, realised that there is not a single-quality link there and quickly disavowed them all.

I also imported a previously disavowed file from GWT and resubmitted the new disavow tool.

Took my like 30 minutes.

Disavow links

Unless he found out what links was he getting, he could have gotten his website penalized and had to wait months to recover.

So, do you know what links is your hired SEO company building for your website? The question is available also for SEO companies that work with freelance link-builders.
