One of the worst investments we made. It started off well with a lot of attention from the sales staff but soon our traffic fell to a fraction of what is was. We were 7 months in to our contract and refused to pay the rest of the 4 months but then they just took us to court. I have heard of success of others in getting their money back so we are starting a counterclaim for the damage they have caused. Please avoid.
If you paid a builder to build an extension to your home, he didn't build the foundations, just built the walls. The council inspectors came and told you that it was not within regulation and that you had to tear it down and start again... Would you hold back any payments to the builder until he had fixed things? What would you do if the builder tried to go ahead and build the roof, without following the councils instructions and looking at the foundations?
Just Search got me an unnatural link penalty. What was their advice, let them build more links to overshadow the crap ones they built.
I said no and that I wanted them to remove the links they had built... I am still waiting for them to do this 4 months later!
I stopped paying them, and they are threatening legal action for the amount owing on the contract. I will be counter claiming.
Will post updates and if it does go to court, I will post the outcome of the case here also.
JustSearch Review JustSearch regularly linked back from websites including gambling and sexually orientated websites. Despite repeated removal requests these links are still showing up.
Since the Panda update in 2011 the website has dropped dramatically into oblivion, Google Webmaster gave a warning about the detection of paid-for links. A resubmission request was submitted, and the reply came back:

Additionally, a friend told me JustSearch verbally said over the phone that 30-40% of their clients have been hit by Google Penguin update which is around 300 other businesses / websites.
