I'm a web and applications developer... I have a few customers that I also maintain SEO for. I've done all the initial legwork for these sites a while ago and have been just doing maintenance to keep them at the top of the Search engine index... usually number 1 or 2 for a lot of their main keyword phrases... I've been getting more and more into development and less and less into the SEO side of things... as a consequence I was not up on the Newest Penguin 2.0 update. Well it hit us... though not as bad as many. I have one customer in particular who I need to lift back up about 8 places... to get back to the top... The thing is I've researched it and my competitors who are still ranking and I can not figure out why WE dropped? Most of the tools that I have used mostly indicate that we should still be ranking and I have not narrowed it down to what it could be.
I am not an SEO pro... but I have studied it enough to know whats going on and up until recently all of my clients have been ranking at the top of Google. What I need is someone who can boost me back up. ABSOLUTELY NO BLACK HAT!! I need lasting results... Everything done must be approved by me. I have 9 Keyword phrases that I would like to rank at the top of the search engines for again... For the right price and more importantly methods, this could be a lasting relationship because I would like to leave off of SEO all together and just stick to what I do best... development. So I am also looking for someone to sub my SEO clients as well.
