Are you a SEO consultant?

    Have you been hired for taking a website into the first page of search result? If yes, then what have you done for this?

      What I did was write one article about SEO using general information that was repeated on a million or so pages, then come to a writers forum and ask for new information to write another.  That's what experts do right?

        No that is not what experts do. They write from experience, not by repeating or regurgitating the work of others that’s most likely out of date and worthless.

        Hmm, I haven't seen this thread before, but you are being facetious, correct?
        An expert understands his field and doesn't just write about it. And no, I'm not a SEO consultant or anywhere near an expert in the field.

        LOL, Melissa!  I know you're making fun, but I'm afraid that IS what a lot of SEO "consultants" do.

        I'm working with a friend right now, who's been paying a "website consultant" hundreds of dollars a month - for months - to "optimize her website".  I'm not an expert, but I know enough to see they've done nothing of any great value, and basically taken her for a ride.

      Man you are clever. I opened one of your hubs, closed it then opened the other.

      It looked the same, so I then had to open your first hub to see if it was the same!

      Right away you got three hits.

      That's clever.

        Could be spun, too. I flagged it.

          Some people must really regret opening forums threads, LOL!

            It's good that they do, though.  He's been here a while, apparently unnoticed.

    An expert knows what s/he's talking about and knows with a pretty high certainty what is working in his field of expertise and what doesn't at all, plus gathers & tests new ways Infos to improve the already known methods to adapt himself in constantly changing world. Somebody who just repeats what s/he's read somewhere, is just a repeater and eventually even just low level scammer with actual no real clue. Being an expert comes with experience and when copy-pasting, you might rather have earned/deserved a degree to be one of  "America's Best Top Copy-Shop Model" ...lol.. big_smile ..!
    There's a quote from Abrahan Lincoln that says:
    "You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves"

    In other words, rather become the expert instead of needing one ... 
    probably the best way not to be scammed.
