Outsourcing Backlinking

Hey everyone,

I'm looking at getting my backlinking outsourced through Elance as this seems to be the path that most people are taking nowadays. Does anybody have any experience with this and could offer up any advice on what sort of money should I realistically be spending to achieve #1 Google rankings for 2 relatively low competition keywords.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers, Mike.

Once upon a time I did outsourced writing and backlinking work for someone and what he had me do is write articles and re-write them 2 times and then spin them by recombining the paragraphs of the three versions of the articles. And he had me submit to ezinearticles, AMA, UAW, Article Alley, Article Dashboard, Easy Articles, Go Articles, Scribd, Syndicate Kahuna, aside from posting on his own websites. And I also did blog commenting and yahoo answers for him.

I wrote, rewrote, spun, and submitted a maximum of 10 500-word articles a week. I also did maximum 6 yahoo answers per week (2 answers for each of three sites) and maximum 30 blog comments per week (10 comments for each of three sites that I was linking back to).

He paid me about $350 to $500 a month. Of course this was ages ago but it would still give you an idea of what you can pay for what kind of work.

I have never used elance but I have used several offers on the warrior forum that have helped me a lot. I got a huge article submission package for about $35; a mixed linking package with a youtube video, 20 blog network links, 20 high pr article directory links as well as a few social bookmarks for $25-57; a profile link service $35; and lastly a blog commenting service for about $38. I spread this out over about two months so it cost about $120ish or $60 per month.

I highly suggest you head over to the warrior forum and just look around for offers in their special offer section.

Remember for complete linking you should have one of each of what i named above, plus or minus a service depending on the competition of your keywords. I always go for super competitive keywords so I have to develop aggressive link plan ;-)

*as a note, edu/gov links are tremendous but you need to place them yourself due to the typical guidelines each site.

I use oDesk, it's great because everything is very easy to use. It takes periodic screen dumps of the contractors activity and gauges keyboard/mouse activity. After a week of work (where you designate an hourly limit) it just bills your credit card, no fuss. I'm sure Elance is similar but I've had a lot of success with oDesk.

Edit: A lot of the contractors who wanted to work with me said that they wanted to work 40 hours a week, for 3 months, to gain a top 3 ranking (without even knowing what key words I wanted to rank for) mostly for about $3.50 an hour. I took this with a grain of salt, but they claimed to be 'SEO experts' :)

Do the math thats $1680 for a top 3 ranking for maybe 1 to 3 keywords. But this isn't an exact science, so I can't really give you any hard evidence. I've only ever hired on people for 2 weeks at a time which usually gets me a front page ranking for low competition keywords.

That's the oDesk Team application at work. Elance has something similar to oDesk Team and it's called WorkView.

you could also look backlink builders on fiverr although you can't be sure of the quality there because of the very low price.

Hi jm,

Is one of your 3 packages the AJP weight loss jetpack? I bought the $112 package for my AJP weight loss jetpack about 4 months ago and yet it hasn't put me on p1. Besides that, I've also put other linking. Might I have overlooked something or have I perhaps done something wrong ?
Thanks mate.
