God I need a good moan. Title says it all really. After another winker who didn't pay their bills and is now playing silly buggers I've got another. We worked on his site for about 2 years, he's been no.1 in Google for well over 12 months, we've tripled his conversion rates and probably more than quadrupled his traffic, worked on a shoestring, and even done work for free. He has been a nightmare and rarely ever paid his bills on time, and in fact hasn't paid for ages. So I made the decision - no pay no work. His site has dropped like a brick since we stopped working on it and now - after all of the good will and working for next to nothing (and actually for nothing at times), and him owing us a small fortune - he's asking for all the money he's ever spent with us back - or else. His site has serious issues post Panda/penguin/some black and white animal, which he's failed to rectify any of it despite numerous warnings. WHAT A WINKER! Anyway, I've told him to fook off. The moral of the story, if there is one, is DO NOT do things for free or try to be nice to customers whatever they claim, because you will not get it reciprocated back the other way. They're WINKERS the lot of em (well not really but I'm feeling a bit Alf Garnett). I'm seriously thinking of trying and if it works adopting the old build links to site X that you set up and own, and then redirect that to the clients site for future SEO. Then if they don't pay just unhook the 301 and let them go down like a lead balloon. I'm off to watch t'Walking Dead now. End of rant. Sorry. Bye.
