    Off-page SEO help required


    Hi guys/gals.

    I am finding it tricky to find a suitable partner to assist us with off-page optimisation for our soon to be launched mini-site development service.

    I am looking for someone to spend 1 hour on each site that we develop to put in place a basic off-page SEO campaign that will mostly be made up of link building activities.

    If there's anyone that can suggest anybody suitable or if they'd like to put themselves forward then please PM me.

    I have 4 sites that need attention first-off and then if we are satisfied with the work that's done that person/company will then become our partner and handle all off-page SEO work for every future site we develop.

    I have tried Elance but without much success. Most just respond with a blanket email and standard proposal for a fully-blown SEO campaign, which isn't what we want.

    One concern I have is that perhaps I'm being a little unrealistic about anyone being able to do anything meaninful in 1 hour. If that's the case then what are your thoughts on how long a basic off-page SEO campaign should take.

    Thanks for any assistance you can offer!

    I have this strong impression that you are hoping for "SEO" for $300... I hope this is not the case.

    Think again... my consultation fee for 1 hour is $100... what do you expect to accomplish in 1 hr? Definitely NOT any kind of a "campaign"

    I can suggest a number of people I would recommend, however you will first need to provide me with a budget... I will not forward clients to SEO if they do not have the proper means and ability to afford it.

    The best way to find an seo on seochat, if that is what your trying to do, is to goto the members page and sort by reputation to find the most reputed members on SeoChat. However reading between the lines you don't sound like you can afford a good SEO.

    Then you probably should look into doing it yourself... if you don't intend to pay for a "fully-blown seo campaign" I have the feeling you are asking a bit much for way too little. What is your monthly budget?

    Unrealistic is very appropriate... 1 hour should be the start of initial analysis, however link building is an ongoing process.... very little can be achieved from only on hours work that will have lasting effects.

    The problem is "cost"... not your costs but the person that will do the work for you.

    Quality links (off-page stuff) aren't cheap they are costly... they may cost $0 in cash but hours in research and more hours in copywriting that someone needs to pay for... and if this isn't you paying... then who?

    On-page SEO is cheap but you don't tend to get much with it...

    All of the guys prof.stan noted will do off-page SEO for your websites but for 4 websites that starts at $4000/month and up.

    For just 1-hour, hire anyone at all, even some bum off the street. It will not make a difference. I'm confident that in 1 hour, he could achieve the same results that you would get out of anyone else responding to that offer.

    There are many factors that change the amount of time/effort. How competitive is the market? How competent is the SEO? What's your budget? How much time do YOU have to provide content?

    In 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg, Confederate General Robert E. Lee ordered Major General William Pickett and others to run the Union Army off of Cemetery Ridge.

    The attack would require Pickett's troops to cross a one-mile-wide open field, up a gradual grade and under heavy fire the entire way. To take the ridge heavy losses were guaranteed. Success was not.

    To be successful they would need to cross the field faster than the Union Army could kill them, deplete the Union Army's ammunition or intimidate them into retreat. Pickett's officers told him that it was impossible, but under orders from Lee he insisted upon the attack across the open field in broad daylight.

    They were wiped out.

    It was one of the greatest wastes of brave young men in the history of our planet.

    The moral of the story is... when planning an attack be sure that you have adequate resources for a successful attack and a plan of attack that matches the terrain and situation.

    For SEO, it does not matter if you pick one hour or ten or one hundred. If you don't have a good plan and don't have the resources to put it in place and carry it through to victory then you squandered whatever you have spent.

    Most commercial websites only make money for two people... the designer and the hosting company. The shortfall is in SEO. So websites without adequate SEO (or some other plan for converting traffic) are lost battles for clients.
