    Very friendly and enthusiastic. High knowledge of Joomla. Cares about customer. Only suggestion for next time would be more user documentation but this was a low-budget project and we did not clearly define ongoing support or documentation. Did a lot of extras for me. Thank you.

I need to see traffic, and I need to see conversions. My website is focused on a physical product and conversions should not be difficult with proper traffic.I would like to see your portfolio or proof of past SEO work.Willing to look at all offers.

THIS IS NOT A STANDARD SEO JOBIf you send me spam about building backlinks and general SEO services, I will report your bid - I am sick of it!!We are looking for someone who knows the common errors reported by Google Webmaster Tools, including:Broken LinksSitemap errorsCrawl errorsHTML improvementsAll other errors reported in Google Webmaster Tools We have a PR4 and aim to have that up to 6 by end of the year, but we need to fix these Webmaster Tools errors. We have been offering SEO services to our customers via a 3rd party provider, but we have been disappointed with the results.

    I need a web site built for a new professional services firm that needs to establish its presence online. An outline has already been developed and the content is ready to go. Flash, Java and all those other cool features are not necessary at this time, but the site should be created in such a way that they can be added if/when needed. The initial work will only require the development of a general design and formatting about 10 pages with the given content. Additional help will be needed in uploading the pages and getting the site live (note - url has already been secured) and then instructions on how the owner can modify and add once the project is over. Would like to see examples of sites created as part of selection process. Thanks!
