OK, so you’ve secured some quotes for link building and SEO work, compared prices and thought about value for money. Since you don’t have time and patience for all this fancy content development, outreach and networking you decide to go with a cheap link building company or hire a few amateurs on Elance.
Your instruction to them: “Make me some links, many links, here’s my anchor text.” – What can go wrong, right?
