Referrer spams my websites everyday. Everyone hates you Semalt. If you were any good you wouldn't need to spam the internet.

We are joined Semalt in March 2019, took the yearly plan, the first weeks it was ok, traffic increase a little bit. In the beginning, i was also wondering, that they want to force me to take the highest plan...later i saw, Semalt want to press the money out of you and let the robots work on spammy referrer backlinks, google don't like it and will bring your traffic down. In June 2019, Google made big changes and also wie lost Traffic, i thought it was they change of them what killed our Traffic and i spoke with Semalt. They said, let us make the big plan, it will solve the problem ...problems of who? Mine not.....after confusing answers and many days, weeks .....in the middle of September i cancelled my Semalt-account and after only 2 Weeks we were back in google "discover" and slowly increase search engine traffic too. So whats that? It was Semalt who was bringing us down, costs a few hundreds of dollars first, stolen us traffic and thousends of Dollars we are lost, cause traffic brokes down from 800k to 200k. PLEASE PEOPLE, DONT TRUST SEMALT...They do not care about your site, they only take care of there money pocket. Very poor business...

Scam SEO company. Fake backlinks in an alleged private network.
Eastern European Scammers delivering nothing
Only a fool will grant this company access to the work online and access there webfiles, you will hijacked and become part of there bot network.
Check out the website and people working for them lol About US page
Sales Staff use Fake names - Vlad, Frank Abagnale (LOL), FrankWilliams
The Semalt web app will make you believe they are doing something but in actual fact they do 0, you have no way of authenticating backlinks, which are not permanent, they are allegedly creating each and every day.
Where your site ranks positively for keywords expect to lose rankings but be told its all part of long term strategy.
Apply tax to invoices where they have no jurisdiction to collect taxes, its a computer error.
Lots of computer errors happen in there organisation when you question them.
Sales staff trained to avoid answering questions.
This outfit like 99% of SEO companies out there will deliver you zero.

I visited semalt and I set up a free profile, since then they bombard me with e-mails, and they constantly phone, I tell them each time they call that I'm not interested, I don't want their call etc, but still they continue, It might help a little if I could clearly understand them, but they are not based in the uk .. given the out of area no phone number available and the heavy asian accents. Their website doesn't tell me anything new, infact I get more from google webmaster tools. Also there are better free tools out there like Neil Patel . com more honest seo

I started Auto SEO campaign for my site 5 months ago, and The campaign from the start was really effective, a lot of keywords moved up in rankings and then My support manager Harry Collins asked me to focus on On-Page SEO as well, they helped me fix all the errors of my website and after that the website rankings were boosted with the Auto SEO campaign. I already recommended 2 of my friends to use Semalt services and I recommend it for everyone.
Ich habe vor 5 Monaten eine Auto-SEO-Kampagne für meine Deutsche und UK Website gestartet. Die Kampagne war von Anfang an sehr effektiv. Viele Keywords sind in den Rankings aufgestiegen. Mein Support-Manager Harry Collins hat mich dann gebeten, mich auch auf On-Page-SEO zu konzentrieren hat mir geholfen, alle Fehler meiner Website zu beheben und danach wurden die Website-Rankings mit der Auto-SEO-Kampagne verbessert. Ich habe bereits 2 meiner Freunde empfohlen, Semalt-Dienste zu nutzen und ich empfehle es allen.

They are very stupid and don't even have manner to speak specially for sales. I got a message through Freddie Williams : +380 980549120 and told me that "Why did you access my website semalt.com"
I said "It my wish whatever i do access". He said : its my website so my concern about to talk to you not yours. (Ohh my god)
I said i probably about to check analytics status or SEO methods. After that he called me up and said "Who the hell are you to say this to me, you don't even have sense, this is the way you talk".
I said excuse me who are you to calling me and yelling on me to say that. It is my wish on whoever's website to visit and any one website make query. I don't need your permission and i disconnected the line.
Literally they don't know how to talk to customer, how to convert into sales. Even though he was yelling on me.

My name is Duane and I am the senior VP of operations and international marketing.
This service is by far the worse for our growing business, they have took money and haven't provided promised services. No live cart and so many other serious issues.
Jason from JME has been in contact multiple times with no prevailing response.
Please contact Jason or myself with the legal contract and signatures along with all email contacts such as communication and replies.
Please include in the communication.
What steps were taken to get the site running.?
How come Jason was unable to view the full progress.?
How come Go daddy was used without the consent of Jason or myself.?
During website building it is required to keep in contact during the WHOLE process. This was not done.
We are requesting a full refund in its entirety to be placed back into Mr Lewis's account as the services provided and promised were not met and have caused undo financial stress as the agreement was for half and then half after the work was competed in FULL
This was also never honored also.
Please rectify this serious issue.

Horrible spammy service. They basically don't do anything but charge you over 1000 dollars. Aiden Morgan could not wait 5 days after my billing cycle ended to run my credit card unauthorized. Then they would not return my money. They sent me a fake refund image to apeace me but I never saw my money again.

FRAUD! FRAUD! FRAUD!
Calling every day - aggressive marketing, after you will get 0 !!!
Only blame that your site has errors
They are not creating any backlinks !!! I checked with Semrush - 0 new backlinks
Please read the answer to my Email:
:DDD fckn Scammers - you will get backlinks any webmaster tool can't see :DDD
Different services like ahrefs, SEMrush, google webmaster tools can't see our backlinks, as we created a unique algorithm, which we can't show. This is our know-how technology and we don't want our competitors to use our algorithm.
Our backlinks are placed on quality partner's websites with a monopoly right to it. Means that these donor websites are not used by other SEO companies.

Review by Farjana Ezie6 months ago
The backlinks Semalt create will be removed when you stop using their services. This happened to our website and our traffic has taken a hit as a result.
The links created when paying for Semalt should be left alone, it is wrong to remove them later. Evidence was even supplied by Semalt to show what they have done.
Shame on Google for making this kind of problem. SEO is the wild west, completely unregulated and a minefield for people to get taken for a lot of money. There are a lot of peoiple out there trying the make an honest living and Google is making it very diffilcult.
Review by FixYourMobileApps Gonxha6 months ago
Disappointed with the results for me. Paid upfront for a year which is fair enough. I had never used SEO on my website before and was doing nicely getting on first page of Google for many of my important keywords.
I wanted to take my website to the next level and get more top 1 and 2 listings. However over the year while I could see changes to random keywords which are slightly related to our business, the important ones struggled to see any change and more worryingly decrease in ranking.
Tried to work with Semalt to see if I needed to change anything on the website, but it appeared there was nothing unless I waited for an exciting update the following month (of course after my current subscription ran out).
On discussion it was said "hi Chris
we've crawled the website and double checked it but everything looks ok
honestly, I have no idea why your top keys dropped while all the rest of them are growing very good
So for me I decided not to renew. I'm giving 1 star as I've paid for a service that hasn't provided results in the important/relevant areas of business. I have no idea about the spam bots people refer to in other reviews.
EDIT: In view of Semalt's reply I was in full communication throughout the 12months. All required updates were done to the website (meta tags, descriptions etc) and acknowledged. Yes I was informed of needing to pay more for full SEO, however my needs were fully discussed before signing up and auto SEO was recommended for my needs.

Robert Calvin from Semalt is one of the best managers if you need SEO service for your business. He has been doing what I am expecting so far just in first month. I am using FULL SEO services,in which they are providing me articles along side high quality backlinks. They have updated system for checking rankings of keywords. Their commitment towards the clients is doable. Semalt is committed to show best positions in TOP 3 just in 3 months. My business niche is quite competitive though I needed someone who can beat other old firms in the search rankings.

Eastern European spam artists. They use spam referral bots. Post 5 star reviews on themselves on trustpilot with fake accounts(look at how every happy client has only 1 or 2 trustpilot review). Typically post 5 star reviews right after a true 1 star review(wow isn't this a coincidence).
Deny everything right out of the Russian Public Relations Guidebook written in 1954. Deny everything even when it is 100% proven. All these various seo-services(com/org) domains sending bot spam traffic are owned by SEMALT. SEMALT spams websites that have no connection to SEMALT, no contract with SEMALT, and quite frankly most website owners have no idea who SEMALT is because of their ultra shady practices which require them to keep a low profile and try to put out the fires calling them spammers.
Semalt trustpilot person - if you have the gumption to come on and post a reply on this review then answer the following questions when you do:
1. Does SEMALT admit to owning a large quantity of domain containing seo-services in various forms including .com and .org variations?
2. Does SEMALT use those domains to send bot traffic to websites which have no contract or have had no contact with SEMALT?
3. Does SEMALT admit to posting the fake reviews on Trustpilot which they have been flagged for by Trustpilot?
4. Why doesn't SEMALT simply stop using those domain to send bot spam traffic if that is the cause of all their bad reviews?
5. If SEMALT are SEO experts, why do they even need bot spam traffic generating domains?
