    Keyword Optimization in 30 days or may be 10 days


    Hello,

    I was looking through freelancerdotcom website and saw the post for SEO jobs. I was amazed to see people offering to complete the jobs in 10 days or 30 days for optimizing a keyword. After analyzing through the keyword, it was very much obvious that atleast I wont be able to get this done even in 60 days. My concern here is How these people can quote for a work which is not possible using any valid technique as far as i know. Or is it really possible which I am not aware of.

    Mostly in life you can hope to get what you pay for at best... But if you pay penuts then you do seem to always end up with monkeys....

    I expect it depends on your definition of "optimising for a keyword".

    For me that means changing the page in question so that is optimised for that specific keyword. That's a job which shouldn't take any more than a few hours if you have the content already. It wouldn't include research for the keyword or getting the keywod high in the serps.

    Its not even about paying peanuts, but for the people who are still doing job and as i said in 10 days ,,,,How is it possible. Does this really fetches result or just lying about their expertize.

    My definition still remain "Optimizing a keyword" not "Optimizing for a Keyword".

    To me though "Optimizing a keyword" is simply changing the on page factors, not link building and getting the page high in the serps. Which should be done in a few hours.

    I think what this really shows though, is that if you are going to advertise a job on something like freelancer then you should be very specific as to what that job entails. Otherwise confusion over different peoples understanding of a phrase can turn the job bad.

    Its impossible to say without knowing what keyword your targeting and exactly what you have asked them to quote for? Why not sure the url to your job listing and them maybe people could advise a little better!?

    As noted above, those people could be getting the wrong end of the stick, like Steve said, he would consider the job simply optimising your page for that keyword, but I on the other hand would consider the job both on page and off page seo and so would clearly quote more and a longer time frame then Steve would.

    Even this is also not the case. It is defined that the keyword should rank his or her site in page 1 . Now hows that possible.

    I fully agree with you.

    Again - all depends.

    It would need much more clarification. If the phrase is something like "silver handled scissors to buy in Redditch UK" then it could probably be done by on page optimisation, however if the phrase is "toys" then that would be a lot more difficult (not quite impossible - but not far from it).

    It really needs more clarification to make any judgements over the time frame.

    The one I saw was for keyword "excessive sweating". And it is UK based company who is looking for the above said keyword optimization. But what I analyzed and what people quoted was really something disturbing. The bidders were responding to the project with time frame as little as 30 days and maximum 120 days. I more thing to add the site owner ranking was in 184th position.

    How many people fall for investment frauds? Bad mechanics? Buying fake products?

    That's business. There's a risk in every purchase. It's up to the buyer to be educated, do research and have common sense.

    Aah, now we are getting to the nitty gritty. I haven't done the research into the phrase so I will take you on face value that it appears hard.

    On the buyers side if he/she makes it clear what the target is and the contract states that the supplier doesn't get paid unless the results are shown then they could be on to a good deal. But they would have to be careful.

    On the sellers side, it could be that the page is poorly set out etc and so they feel that with some modifications to the page, with a few high pr links and a bit of luck they can make it to page 1.

    It's a gamble on both sides, but outsourcing for both parties is always a bit of a gamble anyway (at least in my experience).
