The Review
Feedback summary: 

Link building services provided by Digital Next AUS were in direct contradiction of Google’s established terms of service. With unhelpful and sometimes forceful communication, Digital Next failed to fulfill their obligations. The engagement was then concluded.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and CEO of Shotkit, a photography equipment website.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Digital Next AUS?

I needed white-hat link building services that consisted of reaching out to webmasters and introducing them to our content.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted to improve our website’s SEO performance while complying with Google’s terms of service.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I found them online.

Describe the project in detail.

We were quite clear about our need to remain 100% Google compliant. Our emails to Digital Next explained, in detail, exactly what we wanted, and more importantly, what we didn’t want. All this was agreed upon by both sides.

What was the team composition?

We worked with two different project managers, in addition to communicating with their CEO.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any statistics or metrics that speak to the quality of their work and impact of the engagement?

Their work was in direct opposition to Google's terms of service, which is precisely what we didn’t want. In attempting to defend their actions, we felt they were rude and aggressive.

How did the Digital Next AUS perform from a project management standpoint?

Our first project manager, Tom (Digital Operations Manager, Digital Next AUS), was excellent to deal with. We have no complaints about him. The second, however, was completely unhelpful and unprofessional. We also had a similar experience with their CEO, who ignored our concerns.

What impresses you about the Digital Next AUS?

I can’t think of a genuine answer to this question.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Working in accordance with Google’s terms of service and their contractual obligations would be a step in the right direction.

    If they'd delivered on their promise, it would have been fine. However, we were left having paid for something that's potentially damaging.
