    I was looking on ebay for something and I saw a section that has website services and was wondering if they are any good. There are things like submitting your website to search engines, backlinks and things like that.

    Do you think the services there are any good? They are cheap so I think that they might not be so good but I really do not know.

    One problem with most website related services are that they are either low quality services and some can even harm your website more than they will help it. Thing like buying backlinks on there are something that I would avoid because most sellers will basically put up a link for any website that someone pays them for.

    This can mean that there are a lot of junk, spam, phishing, malicious or otherwise harmful websites that could have backlinks on the same site as a quality website.

    As for submitting your website to search engines, those can be done for free by yourself so it would just be a matter of if you wanted to do it yourself or pay someone to do it.

    I am not saying that all services on eBay are not good because I haven't looked through that section on eBay enough to see what's there, I am just saying that there are a lot of services that I personally would avoid doing for any of my websites.

    This is something that you would want to really check into what you are getting exactly and if it's a good service or not and that can sometimes be hard to tell especially if you do not know enough about the service.

    Sorry I can't give a more definite answer but if you find a service in particular that you are interested in then you can message me the link and I will be happy to take a look at it for you.

    I have to agree with ulterios and check out any service that you are considering buying to make sure it's not going to harm your website. Always use caution when buying any cheap services because most of the time they are cheap because they are low quality.


    Cheers, Dean.

    The ones that were for submitting your website were for quite a lot so wouldn't that be better than doing them one by one yourself?

    The thing is that I really do not know all of the things that I would need to check to see if they are good or bad.

    Well that's kind of the hard part with buying those types of services. A couple things that you can do are to check their feedback rating to see how their customers think about them, you can try searching Google for any information about the seller, you can ask them for references, although I wouldn't be sure about the trustworthiness of them or anything else that can help you.

    It's not going to be easy but maybe if you find a service that you are interested in you can ask someone who knows a little about those types of services to look at it to see what they think. On ebay it's basically going to be a guessing game for those services.

    Wish I could help more but that's about all I can think of at the moment.


    Cheers, Dean.

    Thanks for the help but I think I will just not buy any of those for the time being. I will wait till I know more about what to look for. I just do not want to be throwing away money on things that are not good. Thanks again. :)

    I am glad I could help. I wish I could give you more information but I am afraid there isn't really anything else to add. You just have to use caution when buying services for your websites.

    Cheers, Dean.

    Most times when you buy cheap services they will not be of much good so keep that in mind first.

    I would not expect much from cheap services anyway because you usually get what you pay for. I am most likely going to avoid these just in case.

    They are probably the same in quality as the ones that you see on fiver. Some may be good but you have to find the good ones and how to do that?

    Since I don't know how to tell the difference between the good and bad services I will just avoid ones that I do not know enough about.
