Who and What?
Well, SEOlutions is a company run by 2 guys called Roman & JT. I know, proper black hat names! We’ll be doing an interview with both of them, later in the post.
SEOlutions is the company behind a product called High PR Solutions, in which you get high quality (and High PR/DA) links from English sources at a very good price!
Here’s a couple examples of the Domain and Page authority of the links I got from the 200 High PR Links package (Just $229 per month):
As you can see, you get some pretty epic links for a rather low price. All of which are PR 1 – 4.
The story of how I met both JT and Roman is actually pretty funny – I was rather annoyed as I thought they’d stolen a niche of mine, then I realized after accusing them on Skype both of these 2 guys were pretty awesome and knew what they were doing. I spent a couple hours one day talking with them and eventually wanted to do an Interview with them, they also offered to give all you guys a free reader bonus along with doing the interview so it kind of transformed the interview post into a double whammy – Where I review their kick-ass service and do an interview with them AND get a coupon code you guys can use.
I decided it’d be pretty cool if I interviewed both Roman and JT on their experiences and career. I’ll be asking them both some individual questions and then finish off with some questions about the business in general.
How did you get into Black Hat SEO and SEO in General?
For me it all started a few years back. I took a marketing class on online marketing and during the semester a bunch of pretty cool studies with extensive empirical data were presented. Subsequently, this kick-started my pathway into SEO. I spent the next months learning the in & outs of SEO, some basic HTML, WordPress, etc. and fairly soon after that, I concluded my very first website.
Since then, it has been a wild and exciting ride – and we are still at the beginning..
I don’t remember how exactly, but one day, while surfing the internet, I stumbled across an ebook which talked about making money online through (micro niche) websites. Back then I had absolutely no idea about any of this and simply read through the ebook out of curiosity. The income numbers reported by the author piqued my interest though.
Naturally, this spurred me to do a lot of research on the subject and I quickly became active on the many different IM/SEO forums. Before long, I started building my own websites and attempting to rank them. Shortly after, my first website started making a couple of bucks a day. I was immediately hooked. As the saying goes – the rest is history.
What has been your worst and best moment in your SEO Career?
Wow, this is a hard one. There’s no single best moment for me. One of the best: when I realized, that I was getting good at SEO and that I could potentially make a career out of it if I approach it from the right angle. Not looking for a job after my Diploma and focusing on building out websites was really, really scary, but I’m extremely glad that I did it and stuck with it.
Another one would be the final incorporation of our company as a legal entity. The process is very complex and stressful and it took a lot of nerves – but the day we both signed the documents was one of the best days in my life. It’s such a great and profound feeling to start your own company.
The worst? Well, I never really had any really bad experiences, as I’m pretty rational about business issues and problems. But I was really frustrated, when I had to close down my very first website due to some legal issues stemming from a jealous competitor.
There are too many great moments to pick just one from. To be honest, I absolutely love doing what I do and, as clichÃ© as it sounds, every day is a blast.
As Janis has already mentioned, making everything official by starting our own company was pretty significant. From this point on, there was no turning back, only forward. A memorable moment came shortly after when we landed our first 5 digits contract for a high-profile company.
My worst moment would probably be when my Adsense account was closed. Haha. This was fairly early on in my career and was, at the time, fairly disappointing.
How big is the SEOlutions company?
Since we officially incorporated back in January 2013, we have successfully worked with over 5000 clients. We have an awesome and very dedicated team of a little more than a dozen people. We really appreciate the work they put in everyday to help the company grow and reach new heights.
Where did it first come from and how has it built up over the years?
We [founding partners – JT & Roman] first met each other over a forum, which we were both active on. Back then we were both still studying in University. In our free time we dabbled with our own sites, which generated some decent coin for us, poor college students, at the time.
Soon after, we started discussing link strategies, ranking methods, niches, link types, automation, etc. Before we knew it, we created a link building service together, in order to fund our own projects. This lead to the realization that the two of us work exceptionally well together and have very similar goals and expectations of the future. It also showed us that two people, who are committed to the same goals, can accomplish some impressive feats, which would otherwise have been a lot more difficult to do on your own.
After an extremely successful period, we decided that it was time to incorporate and go legit all the way. That is when we started SEOlutions GmbH. Although it was a very complex process to incorporate legally, signing the final documents in January 2013 was immensely satisfying.
Since then the company has grown at a very fast pace. Recently we broke the fabled 7 digits in revenue milestone, which has been very inspiring. The company is still relatively young and the future looks promising. We are very eager to scale new heights and are proud to be a part of this rapidly-developing industry.
