In 60 Seconds, You'll Stop Worrying About Link Building.Because We’ll Start Doing it For You.
SEO is like an election.
We can tell you that you have to shake a lot of hands to win.
But we can never tell you exactly how many.
You just have to keep shaking until you do.
If you are asking this question, you are asking to be lied to.
Because nobody can tell you with any accuracy how many links its going to take to rank your site.
The HOTH is no different in that regard, except that we're honest about it.
SEO is like an election. We can tell you that you have to be out there shaking hands. But we can't tell you how many hands you'll need to shake to win. You just keep shaking until you do.
More so, The HOTH is only a link building service, not a keyword research, competitive research, on-site optimization or SEO consulting service. If any of these factors are not done well, any link building you do is going to be at a handicap. If you are are in need full service SEO consulting, please contact info[at]hothtactical[dot]com for information about our agency services, offered by our HOTH Tactical division.
5 Reasons Why We Don't Guarantee Your Rank:
- We Don't Know How Competitive your Keyword Is.
We're just a link building service, not a market research service.
- Unique Treatment of Phrases by Google.
Google does not treat each search phrase the same way. For instance, if your search phrase is phrased as a question, Google will treat your results one way. If Google thinks that users for your phrase are looking for a definition or quote, it'll treat the results another way. If Google thinks that displaying local results is more effective for your term than national or global ones, it will do so. Etc.
- Inability to Predict Competition.
We have no clue what your competitors are doing for their SEO. Maybe they have a 5-figure/month budget? Maybe they don't know what a
- The HOTH Doesn't Affect your On-site Optimization.
In 2011, Google released its now infamous Panda Update. The Panda Update is a usability filter that penalizes sites that would otherwise rank well based traditional on-site factors (e.g. title tags, headings, bolded terms, images, etc.) and off-site factors (e.g. links) for poor on-site user experience. This means that not only do you have to have your semantically relevant tags optimized, but now your site actually has to be good to consistently rank. The Panda update is ever evolving and its every site owners responsibility to keep their site fresh, relevant and optimized for bounce rates and conversions. If you do need help with on-site work, email info[at]hothtactical[dot]com about our agency services and we'll do our best to HOTH you.
- We Don't Control the Google SERPs.
There is a name for people who claim to "control" Google SERPs- scammers. Even Google search engineers don't "control" the SERPs. They don't choose the placement of each URL individually. The Google algorithm is constantly changing, evolving, being tested, etc. The results aren't even the same from person to person. We believe that making promises or even a claims to "control" the SERPs in perfectly predictable ways is extremely unprofessional, so we just don't do it.
Right now we do not accept articles from customers. There's a few reasons:
1) We have an extremely streamlined process that allows us to turn around campaigns in the least time possible. Adding custom articles / new approval processes would put a wrench in our system and wouldn't allow us to deliver with the same quality and speed that we do now.
2) Our content standards are very high. Our writers are trained to write quality, on-topic, original articles every time so that the backlinks we create are high value to Google and they are good to show clients. You can see our content standards here.
We've had customers all over the globe report success with using the HOTH in foreign countries. Our main markets are US, Austrailia, UK, but we have agencies from all over the world as clients, even in foreign language markets.
We can help you rank regardless of which flavor of Google you're using (.ca, .ie, .au, .co.uk etc).
We accept foreign keywords (the articles are still written in English, but with foreign keywords in the articles). The only thing we don't accept is non-roman characters (arabic, hebrew, chinese, etc) since it may not come out correct when we distribute articles.
With over 10,000+ campaigns completed, we have absolutely no reason to believe it will.
We have survived and grown after every Google update so far. Google's Panda update was all about making sure your site is high quality--not too many ads above the fold, low bounce rates, etc.
Google's Penguin update rocked the link building world, but after the dust settled, most of the sites that dropped suffered from over-optimization. Now the focus is really all about keeping your anchor text natural & diverse, and using lots of naked URLs as anchors. Since The HOTH allows up to 5 kws per url and up to 15 keywords per order, there's lots of room to diversify your link building anchors.
Already over-optimized? You can submit orders with all naked URLs as anchors to help round out your profile. We wrote a blogpost on keyword selection and strategy here: http://truth.thehoth.com/seo/keyword-strategy/
The moral of the story is, if you're not doing anything really shady with your link building, you have nothing to fear with The HOTH. The HOTH is a long-term link building service, so we have no interest in a quick jump in rankings, just to see you fall soon after. We put meticulous care into quality content, diluting any possible footprints, and further randomizing our method of viral link building to ensure that each iteration keeps ahead of the game.
You can order the HOTH 1 time or set up recurring orders monthly or weekly. You can even set up orders to run at a specified time in the future.
You can see our content standards, as well as examples of both regular and HOTH Plus+ content here.

We are constantly running tests, experiments, and improving the product behind the scenes to make sure we are 100% on top of any search algorithm changes. You can check out our blog where we post our thoughts, news, webinar replays and more at http://truth.thehoth.com.
P.S. We also have client references from all over the word. Feel free to request those as well.
All HOTH packages accept the exact same inputs -
Up to 3 URLs with up to 5 Keywords/Keyphrases per URL.
You are not required to use all of them. As a rule of thumb, we encourage you to use all 3 URLs and not waste Keyword slots that you don't need to. Don't have 3 URLs? No worries. Many SEOs only submit 1 URL at a time with great success.
All URLs and Keywords for any order must be in the same niche!
The Results Package is our default recommendation for clients in the 4 most competitive SEO markets - USA, UK, Canada & Australia. We named it the Results Package, because it's the one we use to consistently see results in those countries. It has over 5 times the links of the HOTH Mini package and even has a second viral link structure, for even greater link diversity and link juice back to your site. Click here to see an info-graphic illustrating the Results Package.
The Results Package is intended to do what it says on the box, achieve results. This doesn't mean 1 Results Package will rank you #1 for the term "insurance," but it is a solid backbone for any link building campaign. It is the go-to option for our most serious SEO clients.
The Results Package gives you over 50% more links for each dollar you spend.
The HOTH Mini is our introductory package intended for less competitive markets and new clients who want to become acquainted with The HOTH. It's not intended to cause any dramatic shifts in the SERPs, except for very low competition keywords and markets. A few clients have developed specialized uses for it.

Yes, most likely.
The HOTH works for
- Local businesses
- National industries
- Specific products
- Industry directories
- Affiliate sites
- E-commerce Sites
- Non-english keywords (tested with French, Dutch, German, Hungarian, etc.)
- And pretty much anything you can think of.
The HOTH does not accept explicitly pornographic or hate terms.
Some highly exploited or "spammy" niches may have lower success rates for the individual properties we create.
Don't worry though, we'll make sure you get the amount of links promised (See FAQ: What if Some HOTH Properties Get Taken Down?).
Filters on the various websites that we create links on are inevitable.
If one of your top-level properties (i.e. Blogspot, Wordpress, Tumblr) is taken down within 30 days of receiving your report, just email us (support[at]thehoth[dot]com) and we'll get the property rebuilt ASAP, along with its supporting links. If a top-level property remains problematic, we'll replace it with a another similar property like a Weebly, which tends to be more lenient.
As for the supporting Web 2.0 properties, Social Bookmarks, and Profile Links, we will never have a 100% success rate. This is why we always over deliver. This way, the amount of active properties is always within the promised range.
You can see our promised ranges on our packages and pricing page.
If, somehow, against all odds, we don't deliver the promised quantity of any of the types of properties (this really doesn't happen, but for your piece of mind), let us know and we'll give you another whole set, no questions asked.
Actually, the answer is already in the name!
We tell all new clients the same thing-
If you want to see results, order the Results Package.
