Beware of TextLinkBrokers

    I talked to their sales people for over a year! Finally I got my employe to committ to their permanent text link program. What a nightmare!

    In the meantime I have left this full time position and work as a consultant.

    So far they have received $2,000 for which I have received a total of TWENTY links. The above mentioned funds SHOULD have gained EIGHTY links. They put up twenty links for one order and then covereted the EXACT same links to the SECOND Order. THis was paid for in May June and they are three orders behind at this time.

    Now, I may lose this client as a result of this referral. Nice - thanks!

    Further, the quality of the links was an absolute joke - this is an industrial site now listed in TWO directories about CHOCOLATE and one about FLOWERS. For crying out loud I could have taken that money and got some seriously kick but links, but if they can't even figure out what a quality link is then well, that's just sad since they are in the business.

    I have requested a $1500 refund immediately - we'll see.

    Sorry to hear that.
    Why didn't you request a complete refund if they didn't deliver on what you agreed?

    Because technically they provided one set of twenty links - I'd be willing to chalk that up to live and learn, but you are right. I just hope I don't lose this work as I really need the money about now.

    Text Link Ads is better IMO as you can choose the site where your links will be placed before you pay any money.

    TLA IS better, I've worked with them for several years - I was looking for perm. links as a better long term investment with lower cost.
