SO WHY WORK FOR US?

Sounds simple but unfortunately nothing is that easy when it comes to understanding the ever changing algorithms used by the search engines. Increasing your quality score is not just a question of stuffing in some keywords and buying in a load of links (oh if only it was that easy!) The truth is, not all incoming links are considered ‘good’ by the search engines. Many are considered invalid and even detrimental to your ‘quality score’. Search engines, Google in particular, like to see a mix of links building over time.
