You have chosen to sponsor your bid up to a maximum amount of .
Homeowners Association Management in the San Francisco area. I just finished launching a new WordPress website for them (~12 pages total). PLENTY of room for ranking improvement. I am looking for a new white hat SEO partner. I have supplied SEO services for two other Homeowners Association (HOA) Management companies in other cities and it is not a super competitive category. It's not like trying to rank the highest for Mortgages, for instance. So, standard effort should be more than sufficient.
Currently there site is essentially invisible in Google when you search for phrases related to their industry, like "HOA Management Companies". I want you to employ ethical, organic, white hat SEO best practices to get many key phrases on to the first page of organic search results. I assume that if you are using ethical, organic, white hat SEO best practices that could take months. I do not want to catapult them to the top and have them peter out or get penalized for black hat or spammy techniques. I want the only the strategies that will produce long term, sustained ranking of the site.
I would like you to supply me with a proposal. Tell me how you plan to accomplish my goal. Please, assume that you will supply all services needed to execute your plan (copy amendments, meta data and tags, directory listing, etc.) and that your bid includes your budget for executing your plan. If you need me to do any part of the plan, let me know what you need me to do. If on-going work is needed to sustain the results, please include that in your proposal along with any associated cost.
Initially I am primarily interested in on-site optimization; copy amendments, tags and meta data, page names, etc. Offsite efforts should include search engine and directory submittals, but we may not interested in a bunch of article writing and incoming links at first. But we can discuss that.
Once I award the project, I will give you the website url, the keyword phrases and target cities we have compiled. Then you can review that and make recommendations.
ALSO, I would like you to set up a Google Analytics account for them so we can track activity.
Doing Business Together:
Please don't waste your bid on this job if you have very little (or no) feedback on this (or any other freelance website). Only experienced freelancers with excellent feedback will be considered.
Also, please propose your terms. I generally don't like to put money in escrow until progress is demonstrated. But i understand that you probably don't want to complete the job with the risk that i might cancel an not compensate you. This is why it is important to me to work with someone that has a proven track record with lots of great feedback. The more great feedback you have, the more comfortable i will be with placing money in escrow and the sooner I will do so.
Budget: If the budget range is too small, tell me why and propose something different and justify it.
Schedule: Looking to award the project ASAP and complete the onsite work within 2 weeks. Would like to have a page in the Google top 5 results within 3 months.
Lastly, it is very important to me that there be excellent communication and that you keep your word regarding dates that you commit to. Performance in these areas *will* affect your feedback.
Thank you for considering my project. I look forward to your proposals and bids. I apologize in advance if i am unable to respond to *everyone* personally.
