Another frustrating client meme. How is $50 an investment? The amount of work which could be done for that amount would be extremely limited. Most on-shore SEO companies have an hourly rate of at least $100 per hour. Running with this, that is roughly half an hours of work. How many quality links can be built in half an hour? Probably 1 or 2 – depending how quick the SEO is at typing. In saying that, 1 or 2 good links is not going to instantly boost your website to a high ranking position over night, or even a month. For that to happen, links would need to build every day.
