Also so far I have a few hundreds members.

    Hi,

    I think you should target local area keywords.
    Dating is a highly competitive niche. Ranking for keywords on Google like "online dating" "free online dating" etc. is out of the question, especially with a small budget. You need to do keyword research and dig into long-tail phrases like "free online dating for local singles" , " London dating" and similar keywords. These are ones you may actually have a shot for, even with a small budget. Once you know your keywords, you can then pay for an SEO service.

    I also advise you to be on track with Facebook and Twitter. Social media marketing is a big one for dating websites.Pay per click advertising is another option, but I would personally spend my money on SEO before I gave PPC a shot.

    Thanks.

    For users profile mate title I started showing username | Sex | relation status | Location is it good idea? I think it is but not sure.

    I would hope user profiles would be private to the public and only available to logged in users. That, assuming true, you would not need to optimize said pages.

    I would focus on homepage and converting pages. You need to gain the users first, before they can search for eachother.

    There are many great examples out there, I hope you're planning on a specific niche of dating.

    That's wright user profiles private to the public and I am focusing on to home page with link building fresh content with keywords and show latest blog/news on home page. I am not focusing on to a specific niche but my target age around 25 to 40 and site 100% free but I am deleting fake profiles and images. What I am planning is I want to focus on to Facebook ads (local only) 2 weeks in Christmas while I am off. Thanks for your reply and advice.
