One of the things I have run into is a service where people offer a service for a small fixed fee. I refrain from mentioning the name of the service in order to stay in line with the terms of this forum but let us say that if I were to use it I would be less than $10. That service has many offers from people offering to bump up a site by retweeting it to their followers and the like.
There may well be an ethical issue here but that apart is there any merit in doing this from the point of view of attracting more visitors and b. (not an SEO question perhaps) how does one establish thaty they have done what they claim to have done? A fool and his money are soon parted they say. I'd like to think that I am not a fool but I am a novice to the SEO game so forgive me if this question sounds naive. I can either learn by parting with my money or by asking those wiser than I - I chose the latter.
