    What is Wrong With This SEO Client/Ad?


    Hi guys,

    Not sure if this is the appropriate thread for this but it's about SEO so I'm putting this here.

    I saw this ad on my email about performance-based SEO. I'm not sure what to make of it. I'm sure many of us have SEO clients so I'd like to get your input on "what is wrong with this client/ad?" Or probably I'm the one wrong by thinking that something is wrong with this ad. Here it is:

    We would like to hire an SEO specialist who is willing to do SEO where the payments are made in milestones based on performance and not monthly fees. In other words, when our keywords hit certain levels is when we make payments. We will structure the payments so there are larger payments when milestones are hit than if we were paying a monthly fee.

    The website is ***.com and the three keywords we are interested in are:

    Sigfox
    LoRa
    Wireless Sensors

    We would propose the following:

    All three in the top 50: $500 payment
    All three in the top 40: $1,000 payment
    All three in the top 30: $2,000 payment
    All three in the top 20: $4,000 payment
    All three in the top 10: $8,000 payment

    I am not sure what kind of keywords that you want to target. I give an example of my previous days even that time targeting specific keywords were very easily only matters no of back links with desired anchor text, one client came to us ask to target only one keyword that was "Egypt news" and set the milestone similar like you, our bd team close and get first payment but when this project come on the floor then opration team clearly deny to run this project with wrong expection. finally we returned back his money and we were happy. And now no one take the guranttee for any cooperative keywords if they accept your offer it means they don't have much knowledge about organic trends. other than this it is better you to hire someone who can write the best content in your niche.
    You do your business I do mine because you are you and I am I If we meet it is nice.

    The keywords the prospective client wants to target were actually the icing on the cake (irony intended):
    • Sigfox
    • LoRa
    • Wireless Sensors

    Two one-word keywords and one two-word keyword.

    So...it works out at $3500 to have your keywords on page three.

    Sounds like a real bargain.

    I believe it's $2,000 if you get all three keywords on page three.

    Yup, thanks Prof Stan. I got what you mean when you said no guarantees. Any SEO Specialist who guarantees ranking to clients should be taken with caution.
