Project Description

We had great presence (first few results on Google for our keywords) since 2008 as we were the leader in the industry and were doing many press releases and had great content.

About 2 years ago we created another site under a different name but our developer copy and pasted the content from our existing wordpress site and used it on the new site. This seriously affected our SEO rankings as google saw the duplicate content and we were penalized. We took the newer site down, (which was really just a new name for our company since the new name was more appropriate than the old/existing one).

Since then, we created an entirely new site with new content and have both sites up. Neither one of them have very good SEO and we continue to do everything we should be doing as using keywords, long-tail, SEO plug-ins for Wordpress, press releases, white papers, etc.

We are looking for someone who can help us increase the traffic on our new site and have a strategy forwarding the traffic from the old site to the new site and not losing the SEO which we have received for the past 5 years.

I have an idea what are keywords are by using wordtracker and SEOMoz as well as google analytics, but not entirely sure which the best keywords are to be used. I know my business and it's obvious we are getting less calls and web inquiries then we did and when I search using the keywords I "THINK" are our keywords we no longer have the SEO rankings which we used to.

We are seeking a SEO expert that can increase our ranking by using proper keywords which you will help determine, plugins for Wordpress, assistance with design changes, assistance with word content, instructions on articles, blogs, press releases and other things which will help us increase our SEO.

Our business has few competitors and it should not be very difficult to regain our ranking. We would like to take the old site down by January 1st and only have the one (New name) website up and any of the pages which are coming up now for the old site, (old press releases and product pages) will come up on the new site.

Looking for someone who is very experienced and can make a dramatic improvement. Someone who knows the new SEO rules for Google. A professional, responsive person who is available during US hours. Positive feedback is required.

More future work available for other sites if this is successful.
