What is Link Cheating?
Link Cheating is where a service that often claims to their clients to raise their link popularity and/or search engines results.
These persons used to be more honest, however of late these services now ask for reciprocal link exchanges from higher search relevant websites, and one obtained these services will remove their back link to the site from which this link exchange was granted/obtained, usually within 2 months, but sometimes sooner and sometimes longer.
Part of the reason I suspect is that Google has devalued reciprocal link exchanges considerably and this is a cheap, albeit dishonest way to obtain cheap “one way” link for their clients (versus actually performing hard work and incurring more expenses).
Please feel free to comment with email or URL addresses of known link cheats so that others can watch for these dishonest services.
This likely growing list will also help their clients or future clients avoid such link building services, as often web sites such as the many I manage eventually catch these link cheats and remove them, thus their clients initial good results end up going back down, often leaving a bewildered and frustrated client with their fees paid long gone.
Here is the List (Which I am sure will grow)
This company is sneaky, they send you an email saying their back link is missing when it is not and that your link is now removed when in reality it was never removed and they never reply back to their email
