    Citation service/Rip off?

    Hi Everyone,

    Posted this before but nothing showed up?
    Hope some of you nice people can help me with my question.

    My site is registered with a citation website called thediscdirectory do co dot uk They charge between 900-1200 per year for their services and they "guarantee" referrals and a boost in Google rankings. However in the time I've been using them, I've seen absolutely no referrals and only one click to my website from their service. I haven't seen any boost in my rankings either and I'm thinking I've been suckered into an expensive service.

    What their service does is this. I get a page on their website with a brief description if my site. They link this to my social media profiles and the referrals are automatically posted on to my Twitter feed. However, these tweets all contain links back to THEIR website.

    I recently found a news article on their site saying their traffic is "staggering" andd Google has indexed 6.4 million of their pages. That's THEIR pages - not mine.

    I think I have a hunch what the answer is but I just need confirmation if this is a rip off or not?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    PS Here's is the link to their news thing http:// www. thediscdirectory.co.uk /news/ item-220.html

    The service is a rip-off and you should cancel immediately and get the link removed if you can...please don't think that site accurately reflects the value of REAL seo services.

    citation is the way you tell your readers that certain material in your work came from another source.
    service of citation
    >it is legal notice to the other side that you have filed your case.
    >it is not enough to tell the person on the other side that you have filed the case.
    >you must follow the taxas rules and given legal notice.
    rip-off of citation
