    This was our first Freelancer project and we already understood the basics of SEO. Thus we were highly sceptical, as to whether or not we would receive any depth or greater understanding about SEO; Searchsouth delivered depth and understanding. Searchsouth provided us with an exceptionally clear and well written report, which provided valuable insight into the current state of our SEO competitiveness. Having now completed the project on time and on budget; we’re in a much better position to implement our SEO and Social Media strategy. All of which is largely due to the highly competent work of Searchsouth.I have no doubt, that if we are ever in need of additional SEO/Social Media consultation we will be contacting Searchsouth without hesitation.

    Project Description:We're currently reviewing our website and want to bring our website's Google organic ranking into a top 3 position for a specific phrase. Additionally, our website is hosted, developed and maintained in house...

    More detailed description of what I need done. My 10 adgroups need to be worked on. The way it is setup is this. In my industry there are general keywords which I have researched. BUT these general keywords do not apply to me and are expensive. I have a niche market within the general industry. Therefore, I have found general words and then put prefixes onto the keywords or phrases so that they pertain to my business. They are categorized separately into each adgroup. So, what I need done is to have really specific ads written that will gain me very high ad relativity rank for relativity. (I"m not speaking of being #1 on the page, that is not the rank I am talking about. I"m talking about how high the rank is on the relativity between keyword, ad and landing page as rated by google and this decides my final CPC) I also have 10 landing pages made, 1 for each adgroup (and you can adjust each specific one to be more specific to each keyword within the adgroup). I would really like to have a really efficient campaign so that I can get the cheapest CPC"s in a very high cost niche industry. Also there are some keywords in each adgroup that are general terms and they need the prefixes added to them so they don"t bring me irrelevant CPC"s with no conversions. So it is basically using your skills to make my ads and landing pages very relevant to each keywords within each adgroup. I think your knowledge of adwords will help you understand what google is looking for when giving good "keyword,ad, landing page relativity rank. Please let me know if you can do this for me. Please read this description carefully and only bid if you can do the work properly, efficiently and quickly to get me low cost, relevant conversions.

    We are now in a good position to scale our Adwords campaign. We are looking to increase spend and need an experienced and skilled expert to manage the campaign.The ideal freelancer will currently work full time in the UK on Google Advertising products and be responsible for many successful campaigns.As a brief overview - we have been operating the account since April 2012 and been tracking eCommerce revenue since April 2013.The account is profitable and the spend is very low. I have run it myself and given it very little time. Most areas have been looked at, but never had any real work put into. So there is obviously huge potential for improvement.We would like to pay an upfront setup fee and then ongoing maintenance payments along with generous % of sale revenue.We need a full review of the account, initial action taken and best practice technique used to achieve improvement, then monthly ongoing payments for a minim of 5 hours work per week.Reports are to be fully comprehensive, well presented and delivered weekly.The budget is set initially but will become flexible, it will be reviewed on a monthly basis to begin with, and is essentially limitless going forward.I"m your first and only point contact and know the business well. I can give you ample time to review keywords, discuss action, figures and answer any questions initially – and then going forward...... You must be available on Skype for at least 1 hour per week to discuss the situation going forward. (voice chat and or message)If you feel you"ve got the skill, motivation and know how to quickly scale this campaign please get in touch to discuss further.I"m interested to know about what you have already achieved in search marketing for yourself and the companies you"ve worked with and or for.Thank youChris Langley.
