SEO Juice stated the following in a forum thread in response to my comments:
"We offered to refund of $2,000. He refused this demanding he wanted almost $3,000 due to money he had apparently spent in recovering his website from our work."
This is a lie. Upon being offered this refund, I replied:
"By refunding $2100, it means I’ve still paid $528 for absolutely nothing at all and in my eyes, that is not refunding ALL money as you state. If you agree to refund the full amount, that will be the end of it and I’ll leave you to your own devices without writing any damaging articles or contributing to your forum post."
He also stated in another comment:
"All [our} suggestions were completely ignored because apparently because the way he was running his website was better than our suggestions anyway" that I had ignored all suggestions made by him to make improvements to my website."
This is once again a lie as the ONLY suggestion I ever received from him was in an email in which he said:
"Have you ever thought about moving to a more modern CMS such as WordPress for this website?
I honestly think that in order to save your online business the last straw would be to convert your website to WordPress and have all onsite SEO configured to the highest quality. This will dramatically improve loading speed, the ease of the search engine bots to crawl the website, plus many more benefits.
Another idea is if we move your budget from the consistent monthly backlinks to a higher level of content concentration for just a month or two we should see some decent improvements which could potentially save your online business.”
Although I was not prepared to increase the budget that I was already paying him as I had seen absolutely no improvement in rankings or traffic to this point, only drops, I did address the issue of speed on my website and once I advised him this problem had been resolved, he replied:
"“Sounds good. I am sure this will definitely make a huge improvement.”
During the six months we worked together, we were friendly right up to the time I terminated my agreement with SEO Juice and this is reflected in all email communication that we had.
Regarding the sparkling review which I found on his own website and in a number of forum postings which had been written by his own 'Operations Mgr', he said:
"this was written over two years ago before she started working for us."
This is yet another lie as SEO Juice was formed by Dave Adamson in January 2011, the first time I saw this review was in a posting dated 24th January 2011, that's less than 4 weeks after the company had been formed!!
A screenshot of that review can be seen here:
So Dave Adamson is prepared to tell whatever lies he needs to in order to squirm out of the limelight. All quotes that I've made in my review are from emails between the two of us and I'm very happy to provide these should it be necessary.
I'm sure there are plenty of fantastic SEO companies out there who do a very good job, but SEO Juice is certainly not one of them. Sadly I have posted in the Warrior Forum my experience of working with him in an attempt to protect others from falling victim to his scams but all my posts have been deleted so they are giving him the protection that he needs so that others don't find out what a liar and a cheat he is.
