What we can do to promote your ICO or cryptocurrency

This article will discuss the digital marketing techniques that we can apply in order to promote ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) or new cryptocurrencies. We have a huge experience in the field, with more than twenty ICOs promoted until July 17th, 2017, and also sustained marketing services provided for a few cryptocurrencies that are currently in top 20 by market cap.

We can promote you on Quora

Monitored Quora questions in these topics:
https://www.quora.com/topic/Cryptocurrencies
https://www.quora.com/topic/Ethereum-blockchain-app-platform
https://www.quora.com/topic/Bitcoin

Example purchase, for /r/cryptocurrency, where we have moderator accounts:

1 x Reddit Post
35 x Reddit Upvote Post

The idea is to keep reminding people about the ICO. Ideas for posts:

  • Have a blog for the project, and link to every new blog post in related subreddits.

How to rank higher on Google

We teach you here how to rank higher on Google, without wasting too many words on each method. The statistics are taken from recent comprehensive studies. We’ll keep this page updated, therefore bookmarking it might be a good idea.

  1. Get highly upvoted link posts going to your website. Here’s an amazing insight that you won’t find in any such guide: Google takes into consideration the popularity of links on social media aggregation services, like Reddit. If two link posts from /r/technology have the keywords “compact portable leaf blower”, yet one of the posts has a lot more upvotes than the other… then then one with more upvotes will also be in front of the other in the Google search results. This means that the search results can actually be manipulated for low costs.
  2. Get a lot of backlinks to your content (consider using our Ultimate SEO service, our our Managed Traffic)! On average, the top 2 results on page 1 of a Google search equate to 38% of all the backlinks of the first 10 results! Acquiring backlinks from multiple domains is important.
  3. Get HTTPS for your website, preferably through a free SSL certificate – because paying for this is stupid! HTTPS has positive correlation with higher rankings, with 33% of all URLs that rank #1, #2 or #3 using this protocol.
  4. Get keyword-focused internal links and backlinks (internal links are links that go from one page on a domain to a different page on the same domain)! Work on acquiring links that have your keyword present within the anchor text (the anchor text is the clickable text in a hyperlink), but don’t overdo it! Anchor text is a huge ranking signal; in a study, the 100 top performing blog posts had, on average, over 80% more keyword-focused anchor texts than the rest.
  5. Use shorter page titles! Top-ranking webpages tend to have shorter page titles, with the sweet spot nearing 8 words in length. Identify any page titles that are too long and shorten them down to ensure they’re as succinct as possible!
  6. Put the target keyword in the URL! Webpages with the target keyword in their URL tend to rank higher in Google. If you weren’t doing this, do it from now on; avoid updating URLs of existing content because there are greater risks associated with this, than the potential reward.
  7. Include your target keyword within the page title! Over 15% of all the pages ranked #1 include the target keyword within the page title.
  8. If you have Google/Universal Analytics installed, Google can deduce how relevant your page was for the search by looking at these two statistics: time-on-page and bounce rate. If you have a high bounce rate and a low time-on-page, uninstall Universal Analytics!
  9. Use shorter URLs! Top-ranking webpages in Google have shorter URLs, with position #1 URLs averaging 59 characters in length.
  10. Search engines understand vote counts when it comes to social news aggregation websites. If a link leading to your website on Reddit has 50 upvotes, it will be a social proof more powerful than if it had 5 upvotes. Make sure you slip somehow in the title the keywords that you’re ranking for.

Check this page from time to time! We promise to add more tips on how to rank higher on Google.

How to promote yourself if you sell B2B services

Method 1

Market yourself through comments on Reddit. Add something similar to this as your home page:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Blogging+Entrepreneur+freelance+marketing+smallbusiness+socialmedia+startups+writing/new/

In this example, whenever you’ll be opening your browser, you’ll see the new posts from these subreddits: blogging, entrepreneur, freelance, marketing, smallbusiness, socialmedia, startups, writing. Answer to people, help them, mention your website from time to time, maybe even add something similar to this to the end of each of your comments:

Check out my service from website!

Of course, change the list of subreddits to whatever interests you by modifying the link.

For every 9 comments, do a post linking directly to your website. It’s called the 9:1 rule and I believe it’s mentioned in the self-promotion TOS of Reddit. You’ll get a lot less hate by following this rule as opposed to relentlessly promoting your website. Of course, we can help when needed with upvotes for both comments or posts, in order to gain you more visibility. Here’s an incomplete list of what can be done with our help. Also check our main page.

 

Method 2

When you’ve written an article for which the target market could be any entrepreneur, post it on news.ycombinator.com (Hacker News). We sell Hacker News accounts of quality here. By posting from a great account, your post won’t get removed and you have a much higher chance of making the home page.

 

Method 3

When you’ve written an article on which the target market could be any marketer, post it on growhhackers.com (GH). These are the tags which can be chosen for any article posted on growthhackers.com, just so you understand better what fits there: Analytics, API, B2B, Blogging, Case Study, Chrome, Churn, Content Marketing, Copywriting, CRO, Crowdfunding, Customer Development, Customer Service, Data Science, Design, E-commerce, Early Traction, Ecosystem, Email Marketing, Engagement, Engineering, Facebook, Feedback, Firefox, Google Adwords, Google+, Growth, Growth Hacks, Growth Team, Inbound Marketing, Instagram, Landing Pages, LinkedIn, Local SEO, Marketing Strategy, Metrics, Mobile Apps, MobileMarketing, Network Effects, Onboarding, Optimization, Paid Marketing, Pinterest, Press, Pricing, Product, Product Launch, Referral, Retargeting, SaaS, Sales, Science of Persuasion, SEM, SEO, Snapchat, Social Marketing, Tools, Twitter, User Experience, Viral, Youtube.

 

For methods 3 and 4, we can post for you if you have bad accounts, and you should also consider having your posts upvoted.

 

Method 4

Market your website through answers on Quora. Make sure you answer the most followed questions because they get much more traffic. But choose those on which you actually stand a chance of getting a top answer. If the question is five years old, with 500 answers already and the top one having 1000 upvotes… it’s obviously not worth the effort of trying to compete.

How to do this method easily? You should add the pages of a few topics as homepages (yes, you can have more than one homepage!), in order to have them accessible when you open the browser; example: https://www.quora.com/topic/Startups/top_questions; this would show you the questions that need an answer from the “Startups” topic. Just have a quick look each time you open the browser and only answer from time to time, when it’s easy for you. Once you have at least 5 answers in each topic on which you’re specialized, you can get Maximize PeopleRank from us (read its description on the main page) for each of those topics, and from there onwards your answers will get much better positioning.

You can also try to compete on the bigger questions by buying upvotes and downvotes (for competing answers) from us, or you can create new “big questions” by buying Question Follows from us for the questions that don’t get enough traffic, but on which you already have the top answer.

 

Method 5

Have us post and upvote a link to your newest articles on Voat, Snapzu and TopTopic.

Internet marketing tips

In this post we’ll add random internet marketing tips, mostly related to our types of marketing (the ones that work for a good price). To be honest, we also like the bolded keyword because it has a low competition, therefore we’re hoping to have more people land from Google on our website and check the services that we offer because of this article. So, without further ado, below are some tips, and this post will be updated whenever something new comes up in our minds:

  • If we made for you a post or comment that leads to your website, don’t go in its comment section and start replying as someone associated with the website; this is a huge red flag that makes people immediately realize that the post wasn’t natural and it’s actually a marketing ploy. Defending yourself and saying that you saw the referral in Google Analytics also doesn’t work. You’ll get a reply similar to this one: So you’re just sitting there, watching Google Analytics, waiting for some visit to your page in order to check its referral? Sorry, but this seems so staged, it’s retarded. (actual comment received by someone who made this mistake)
  • An exception to the above rule is when we’re posting as someone associated with your website (for example in the Show HN area from Hacker News); in these cases, if there’s need for it, we’ll give you temporarily access to the account that we used to post, in order to answer any questions.
  • On Reddit, use this online tool to find out when it’s the best time to post: https://www.redditlater.com/analysis. It uses the timezone reported by your browser. Consider submitting a bit before the recommended time. Or, if you’re hiring us to do the posts for you, consider letting us choose the best times, depending on the networks and the post locations. Just specify at checkout that we have free rein with the scheduling. Or write nothing regarding when should the post be made.
  • To find out where you could post on Reddit, use this tool: https://www.delayforreddit.com/discover. It helps identify subreddits which have an interest in your keywords. A higher score means that a subreddit is more aligned with your topic.
  • If you add “/about/traffic” at the end of the URL for a subreddit, it shows you traffic stats for it (works on most of them). For example: https://www.reddit.com/r/EatCheapAndHealthy/about/traffic
  • On Hacker News, you can bypass the filter not allowing URL reposts by adding variables to them. For example http://upvotes.club would become http://upvotes.club?upvote=thanks
  • Do you want to post a URL to a domain that is banned? No problem, just run the URL through this obfuscator: http://ronray.net/scripts/URL-Encryption-II.html
  • On Hacker News, when the post is new, it doesn’t matter how much you upvote it after a certain point. After fewer than 10 early upvotes with great accounts, you’ll usually make it to the front page. From there, HN moderators select manually what they want to keep there. A good strategy is to buy only a few upvotes first in order to make your post visible; then, after it remains approved for 10 minutes or more, buy a lot more upvotes in order to rank it better, or help maintain its good position.
  • Make sure you always read the rules before posting (for example the sidebar rules of the subreddit, on Reddit). Modify your title and content accordingly! On some subreddits, if the option is available, flair you post after submission (this means you tag it for a subcategory). Here’s how: https://www.reddit.com/r/chiliadmystery/comments/1uq68v/how_to_flair_your_post/
  • Use this tool to analyze the SEO prowess of your pages.

Check this out from time to time! More internet marketing tips will be added in this article, and more articles will be added to our blog, which has two categories: basics and advanced!

Reddit Marketing

This article will go over the most basic Reddit marketing techniques, the ones for which you don’t even need to think. After reading it you will understand how to promote your business on Reddit, and towards the end of the guide we also provide some more advanced techniques. In most cases you’ll just have to post a link to your product/service/app/cause/crowdfunding campaign/… with a long and descriptive title, and then buy a few upvotes and comments for your threads. Especially if you’re inexperienced, these are the first Reddit marketing objectives that you should complete:

 

You can easily get DoFollow links from Reddit by posting your website in the above places, then having the posts upvoted. After a certain threshold (5 upvotes or more for subreddits of a few thousands, if others don’t downvote you), the links automatically become DoFollow. The exact threashold of how many upvotes you need depends on the average vote count of the top 25 posts from Hot, on that respective subreddit (yes Reddit, we have studied you!). Links from comments can become DoFollow too.

 

More advanced and time consuming Reddit marketing techniques:

  • Link somehow to your business in ALL the relevant subreddits. For example if you’re a game developer, you might post comments and threads in /r/gamedev, /r/games, /r/gaming (12,480,009 subscribers), /r/gamedeals, /r/indiegames, /r/greenlightquality and sixty more places.
  • Discuss a business process or offer content of value on /r/entrepreneur (208,115 subscribers) and /r/business (210,073 subscribers); only disclose your website address if you’re asked to in the comment section. If no one asks you, just ask yourself from another account or buy a comment from us and we’ll ask you.
  • Discuss an aspect related to your startup on /r/startups (116,638 subscribers)
  • Post links to content from your blog in ALL the relevant subreddits (submit it any form: posts, comments or replies to top comments).
  • Buy a Reddit account and create a subreddit for your company or cause. Post regular updates, links to your blog posts, promotions, and so on.

Digital marketing on Reddit can be time consuming indeed when you’re doing the above-mentioned advanced techniques, but why put the same time in more ineffective traction channels, like Facebook or Twitter, when they don’t provide the same traffic and they also don’t provide any SEO boost, at all. If you check our article on how to rank higher on Google, you’ll see that the first tip is actually quite eye opening:

Google takes into consideration the popularity of links on social media aggregation services, like Reddit. If two link-posts from /r/technology have the keywords “compact portable leaf blower”, yet one of the posts has a lot more upvotes than the other… then then one with more upvotes will also be in front of the other in the Google search results. This means that the search results can actually be rearranged for low costs.

 

All of the subscriber counts above are as of September 30, 2016.

Here’s a word of advice, pasted from the Reddit guideline on self-promotion:

You should submit from a variety of sources (a general rule of thumb is that 10% or less of your posting and conversation should link to your own content), talk to people in the comments (and not just on your own links), and generally be a good member of the community.

To avoid breaking this rule, make the posts from different accounts, or buy posts from us and we’ll make sure to not go overboard from a single account. Don’t post with your personal account, especially if you’re a novice in your understanding of Reddit. Good luck! We hope that our Reddit marketing ideas and tips will help you gain more exposure!

Forums Traffic – Backlinks and traffic to your website

This is a short description of our “Forums Traffic” service and the methodology that we use to complete it. Getting forum traffic is actually the secondary effect of this service. It helps even more with off-site search engine optimization: your link will go up in rankings for the keywords that you select (a “keyword” is the thing you type on Google, while hoping that among the first results you’ll see your website). This method is extremely underused for this purpose, hence its efficiency. For traffic, we’ll obviously target high-traffic forums, and not the ones with ten posts per subforum – which might not even be around in two years. If your keywords have many hits on Google, you’d actually benefit more from a SEO boost, therefore we’ll drop the “related” requirement and a part of the methodology from below, and do posts on forums that we know to moderate less (so that you end up with more live backlinks). If you’re familiar with Google’s Keyword Planner tool, know that we’ve managed to beat low competition easily with this one. If you want to defeat medium competition, consider getting all these services: Managed Traffic, Fb/G+ Traffic and Forums Traffic. If you want to defeat high competition, consider getting all these: The Ultimate SEO Gig, Fb/G+ Traffic and Forums Traffic.

For a TLDR, let’s start with the official product description: We’ll post your link on related forums, where your target market might be. This takes around two weeks because we can’t just register and post. We have to be active on them first, for around 12-13 days. You will receive the accounts.

Forums Traffic - Backlinks and traffic to your website

In detail, this is how the forum traffic service is completed:

Step 1 (Day 1) – We find all the related forums (for example we’d select the “gaming forum” keyword for a “best gaming mouse” article).

Step 2 (Day 1) – We register an account on each one from a UK or US IP address, and we verify them.We won’t use a free email, in order to get a higher account approval success rate.

Step 3 (Day 1) – A native English speaker living in UK posts replies that make sense to existing threads. He includes a neutral link (like Wikipedia or YouTube), in order to infer the URL posting rules.

Step 4 (a week later) – A second post is made, without a link. Again, it will be activity that makes sense; no part of the process is automated.

Step 5 (final step, a week later) – We make a new thread in a visible and appropriate category, which will lead to the client’s website. Note that the subject or the body of the thread is changed slightly from time to time, in order to make it seem like a different message to GoogleBot. If we find a related thread, we post the message in it as a reply instead.

When we concentrate on the SEO boost, the methodology is different. Regardless, you’ll end up with at most 40 posts live. Once completed, the spreadsheet with all the usernames, passwords, and links to the final posts is sent to the client. This is extremely important because the same accounts could be used later by the client to make his own posts, for other keywords and links that he wants to promote – therefore getting even more backlinks and traffic. He won’t have to pay us anymore because he has 90% of the work already done for him. We believe this service is worth a lot more than what we sell it for, and, again, consider pairing it with others in order to get an even stronger effect.

Buying Hacker News and GrowthHackers upvotes… why so expensive compared to Reddit?

Because some of our clients abused the old price. If turns out that if Hacker News upvotes cost $0.79 each, some people that don’t distinguish this network from Reddit, will go crazy and buy hundreds of upvotes for one single post. The same for GrowthHackers.com.

On both these networks, it’s a lot more important to post content of quality than to have it upvoted exaggeratedly. We agree with you that without upvotes you won’t even get noticed since there are so many submissions every minute, but you don’t need to buy that many HN or GH upvotes in order to stand out. If your thread from the New section has 10 upvotes and all the others have one or two, you’ll get noticed alright. On HN, the moderators decide what makes it to the front page, therefore even if you have 500 upvotes, if they don’t like your content, you won’t be getting traffic. A decent number of upvotes and content of quality should be enough to get selected for their front page. Once you’re there, you may buy any number of votes from us in order to increase the popularity of your post further. It won’t look suspicious. But if you are just testing out content, ideas, or a new project in the Show HN section, don’t go crazy.

The current price is $1.49 for Hacker News upvotes and $1.39 for GrowthHackers upvotes. The maximums and recommended amounts to buy for new posts are 8-10, and 20-30 respectively. For GrowthHackers, the price is easy to justify given how hard it is to create an account of quality on the network. But for news.ycombinator.com, you might say: “But it is so easy to sign up. I can sign up a new account in one minute and upvote myself!”. If you do this, make sure that at the second upvote, you go to settings and activate “showdead”. Otherwise you won’t be able to find your thread.

 

Some other notes:

  • How much traffic can Hacker News bring? The question should be: “How much traffic can Hacker News bring, if I make it to the front page?”. Answer: it depends greatly on how clickbaity your title is. It can bring from 20k to 65k in the first 24 hours.
  • Same question, but for GrowthHackers: you’ll get between 1,000 and 2,500 views in the first 24 hours. Most of these will be from business owners though, and in general… people with a lot of money, technical knowledge and influence. A big difference to Hacker News is that you’ll keep getting a decent number of clicks, even after the first 24 hours.

A successful business starts with a successful product launch. We help.

A successful business starts with a successful product launch, and, in collaboration with another marketing agency, we can do absolutely everything for you. This article is a presentation of our “Successful Product Launch” service. This service may also be used (and has been used in the past) for crowd-funding campaigns, launching a music album, and so on.

First off… this is not a classic PR gig, like most marketing companies offer. In today’s competitive world, a business needs to think differently in order to be successful. It needs to walk on the lesser known paths. That’s where we come in. One of our main objectives is to always be a few steps ahead of the competition. This is in no way an exaggeration: other marketing agencies pay us to do their own marketing. When it comes to product launching, we think that just signing up for an account with prnewswire and having the founder write a press release from time to time is enough PR (or do a free press release on prlog.org).

What we and the other marketing agency will be offering are more efficient strategies, less over-used by competition, specifically tailored for what you’re promoting.

For this service, the main offering of Upvotes Club is represented by highly visible threads on multiple social media networks, with positive comments. Journalists will use the information found there automatically. No need to waste a lot of time and dignity by going after them personally. The posts & comments are made and monitored until they die off, on the groups that fit from these networks:

reddit.com (and no, we’re not posting in /r/promote, /r/imadethis, and other subreddits that don’t matter, like others would do in the same situation in order to pretend they did something; we select subreddits where the target market resides)

snapzu.com

voat.co

 

We post questions and upvoted answers leading to the product on:

quora.com

 

We also post and sometimes comment positively, without monitoring, on what fits out of these:

news.ycombinator.com

toptopic.com

growthhackers.com

empeopled.com

hubski.com

the-artifice.com

 

We might even post on some of these if your target market is inside a few of their groups/boards/tags:

stacksity.com

gameiki.com

panjury.com

4chan.org

8ch.pl

endchan.xyz

campussociety.com

zeronet.io

dojo.press

lobste.rs

slashdot.org

 

If necessary, you will receive temporary access to some of the accounts that we use to post for you, in order to reply to feedback, questions, and so on. If you’re purchasing this service for a mobile app or a game on any platform, know that there are so many communities that we could post on that we’ll have to choose only the most important ones. If you truly want it posted everywhere worthwhile, please buy this service two times for the same project, as our volume of work will be tremendous.

 

The other marketing agency will submit content mentioning your product to fark.com, livejournal.com, steemit.com, metafilter.com, etc., and their own blog network. They choose the strategies with the biggest potential and have access to an arsenal different than ours, making them a perfect complement:

  • Subscription lists
  • Direct connections with journalists
  • Possibility to get a link trending on stumbleupon.com
  • Powerful social media accounts and influencers
  • etc.

If not done already by you, they will submit your startup and product/service to all the important directories (at most 100, on average less than half that), including producthunt.com.

 

The launch will be coordinated live in a Slack group, and we’ll integrate it with Mention and other services that will help us assess the exposure. It mostly goes like this: we propose ops to you, and you approve or deny them. This lasts for around two weeks. Therefore it will take around two weeks for your product launch to be complete and successful.

 

 

If you’re a perfectionist and you want done absolutely everything that can be done, consider buying these additional and complementary services from our offer, but expect them to be less efficient than the actual product launch ops:

  • Forums Traffic
  • Fb/G+ Traffic
  • The Ultimate SEO Gig

Also create a Quora account that you’ll be using to advertise your product through answers, then use “Maximize PeopleRank” to improve its importance in the topics that present interest to your company.

 

A successful product launch can be all the marketing that you ever need if your product or service is indeed bringing value. Or if you creations are above average, in case you are a content creator (musician, writer, painter, etc.). Let us participate in the success of your entrepreneurship! Read here why you should work with us.

Here’s why you will get scammed on Fiverr – the marketplace for scams, especially when it comes to marketing and advertising gigs

Fiverr scams… extremely prevalent, especially when it comes to marketing and advertising gigs. We’ve been asked by a client to discuss this and we think it’s actually quite a great idea! Most of us (from upvotes.club) have our own companies as well. We’ve been into entrepreneurship and marketing for a combined total of over 200 years. We know how it feels to be desperate to get exposure for your own business, cause or creative content. And then you open this wonderful website named Fiverr, and you see these incredible offers from the people of Malawi, Burundi, Congo and so on:

  • I will bring aamazing trafic from my 2wo million subscriber evry day, envy for competition, only 5$ (also blowjob)
  • I will improve SEO ranking, bring you to #!!!1 on Goggles, make envy for enemy, cash cash cash (it takes long, i dont have internet)
  • For $5 I will create a full website for u, register business, design product, manufacture, makreting, start selling, you keep 200%, just give me $5 now really (P.S. don’t xpect instant resultz!!.))

And so on. And the marvelous thing is that these people will actually have a multitude of 5-star reviews, as if people buy their services and are satisfied.

Then there will be the intelligent scammers, from China/India, and sometimes even US or EU. The titles of these people’s gigs might make sense, rarely even the descriptions of the gigs. But the objective of marketing is to bring you actual sales and we’ve NEVER made any sale with the help of Fiverr. Never! For Fiverr, that saying is true: marketing is lying when you spell it backwards.That’s because even the gigs that seem best are simply owned by better bot makers. Bots that will foul you. Bots that have a lower bounce rate.

The value of these gigs is not $5. They actually carry negative value because you’re wasting time with them. You’re not just donating money to scammers and their intermediary, you’re also handing them hours of your life. If they are SEO gigs, they carry a negative value also because as soon as their blog network will get unlisted, your website will get a rank penalty as well!

 

Fiverr is knowingly allowing scams on its website. They might even try to sue us for this reveal. It’s OK, we don’t care. If they do it we’ll just cause them even more problems by making this issue more publicized. We don’t give a shit about scammers; we’re willing to fight them. Here’s how Fiverr knowingly allows scams and profits from them:

  • First off, it’s in their best interest to keep the charade going. They take 5% extra on top of the payment from the buyers and 20% from the sellers. This is a lot. So the seller has to offer you a service worth $4 minus withdrawal fees, while making sure he pretends to give you more than the competition for the same money – otherwise he’s not getting orders. Note that the competition is also pretending to offer a real service, so they’re pretending to be better than guys that are already pretending to be good.
  • Seller locations mean nothing. You can choose to have any location displayed, while your billing data is completely different. Almost none of the sellers offering marketing gigs are actually from US.
  • Negative reviews don’t actually exist. No… seriously. Hear us out! First off, the buyer leaves a review first! The seller reads the review and decides on his course of action. He has the upper hand because he’s the one leaving a review last (which is seen as a reply to the buyer, where he can lie his ass off because the buyer can’t reply as well). But if the review is negative he can issue a refund, and… guess what? The bad review disappears! So all those SEO gigs with 500 positive reviews and no negative review are easy to explain all of a sudden. Real SEO and traffic cost a lot more, and yes, we offer all of these on our main page.

fiverr scams

Actually, if you search on Google for “fiverr scams”, there are 176,000 results. Let’s read some of what other people have to say:

This scam was for increased traffic to my website for a month, but the seller was supplying junk traffic. I called the gig off early and Fiverr gave the scam artist the out and removed my negative rating and removed my warning to future shoppers.

Don’t trust the SEO advice outlined in the description of any gig. They are just trying to sell the gig. And you have to consider the source as well. If a gig provider is really able to “Guarantee First Page Rankings for Any Search Term” why would they be wasting their time selling the service for $5?

FYI, I’ve seen many SEO gigs on Fiverr turn out to be scams. They use blackhat practices, and then extort large amounts of money out of you to undo it. If you don’t pay, they get you blacklisted on Google by reporting the very blackhat practices they implemented.

It’s a joke.
Even when you pay extra for the added services. You’ll be getting low quality fake social media profiles posting stuff out to other face social media profiles.

You have zero time and no money and want results? What fantasy world are you living in?
The automated shit you find on Fiverr is more likely to get your website de-indexed than to help it.

I can guarantee you that all the gigs that claims on first page of Google are clear scams. I have tried several gigs and no results at all!

If you are getting some results this is due to your previous seo or quality of your articles…etc. Don’t think these sellers can bring you any good result! All of these scam artists use bots to generate bulk links. Don’t be fool to believe that they will build hundreds of manual links for 5$ or even for 50$. All are bot generated links!

Since they claim the results come at least after 1-2 months, According to Fiverr rules you are not able to claim a refund either! or at least Fiverr will not allow you to post a negative review after 30 days!

If you search the gigs for the term ‘seo’ you can find these gigs among top results!

When it comes to Fiverr, you’re looking at a world of hurt if you’re expecting quality work. Let me revise that statement a bit – there is a huge hill that you have to climb to find someone who’s anywhere remotely what you’re looking for.
[…] If you’re selling your time how much do you really expect to make? The people who make money on Fiverr have built systems and software to accomplish requested tasks almost effortlessly.

– Jay Soriano on his blog

 

As an experiment, designer Sacha Greif took Fiverr up on their offer and ran a project through the service, only to find that many of the portfolios presented were full of other designers’ work, and the delivered logos were knocked off from somewhere else.

– Steve Douglas on The Logo Factory’s blog

 

Bad Gigs:

  • Real social media followers
  • Any sort of backlinks for SEO purposes
  • Submission gigs (press releases, infographics, document sharing sites)
  • Blog or social media shares with a huge audience
  • Business plans, financial advice
  • Anything that you know can’t be done for $5

– Ryan Stewart on Sitepoint’s blog

 

I was hired to write a 75,000 word novel, a $560 job.  The client was so happy with my work, she gave me a 5-star review and asked me to do more large projects. Suddenly, account BANNED by Fiverr

Reddit traffic to your blog, product, service or cause. We help you get it!

The Reddit traffic that you get from an upvoted post or comment can be huge. It can even be more than you can afford to receive. Are you familiar with these expressions?

  • the Reddit effect
  • the hug of death

If you are, you probably know what you want and how you want it, therefore jump to this article about buying Reddit upvotes.

If not, read on. When a popular website links to a smaller one, causing a massive increase in traffic, it can overload it. This can mean slowing it down, or even outright making it temporarily unavailable. “The Reddit hug of death” happens when too many redditors find out about your stuff in the same time and start visiting it. They like your stuff. They “hug” your content, product, service or cause… until they take it down. It’s a flood of web page requests.

Have a look here for some updated statistics on how many visitors Reddit has. Or look below for the status on July 24, 2016:

reddit traffic

You will notice that they’re quite impressive, more so than any other social media network, except Facebook. You can redirect some of that Reddit traffic to your website through two methods:

– 1 –

Buying adds through them.

This doesn’t work. Redditors are usually technical people and most of them use AdBlock. Your ads will be seen by the exceptions. Ads on Reddit are also quite easy to distinguish and the brain gets used to ignoring them. You’d be throwing money into a black hole.

– 2 –

The second method actually works: submit a post or a comment regarding your stuff. Or “have it submitted by someone else/someone neutral/someone not connected to you” (by us). After this, you don’t have to hope that people will actually like your post and upvote it. Just pay us and we’ll upvote your content and help you get that real traffic of high quality that comes with its increased visibility. You can convert that further into money. If you’re like any of our other clients, you’ll keep coming back. Buy Reddit upvotes!
