“Avoid at all costs - they 'build' links by buying them”

Written on: 25/09/2013 by mattmorgan79 (1 review written)

We used The WebMarketing Group (WMG) for a period of 9 months from May 2012. Although initially the results were promising, in April this year we received a warning from Google about the quality of our links. In the latest Penguin update we were awarded a penalty. On closer inspection of the links built by WMG they had all been paid for. The sites the links were 'built' from all advertised links for sale which is contravenes all of Googles guidelines. We have now spent 4 months getting these removed which makes the £20,000 we spent with WMG a complete waste of money. Avoid at all costs and find an agency that understands SEO rather than buying blackhat links.

Couldn't agree with you more, had exactly the same experience! We used this company for SEO for two years and spent £20,000, dropped down in the rankings, given no advice, penalised by Google and could see nothing for the money we paid!

We considered using this outfit, but when we made it clear that we were not interested in entrusting them with our pay-per-click marketing, they immediately lost interest. In my view they are the worst of a bad bunch.
