Hope this message finds you well.
We run a payday loan site (URL provided in PM).The URL is also an EMD. This site has been marketed only on [url removed, login to view] for the following terms
1) no credit check payday loans
2) payday loans no credit check
3) bad credit payday loans
The site has spent some time on page 1 of Google UK (for all 3 terms). However, after a very bad experience with our previous SEO provider, we are now searching for a new vendor. We burnt our fingers by paying money up front and it turns out the vendor dissapeared with our cash, leaving our rankings to plummet! We are now looking for our rankings to be restored. As such, this is not building from scratch.
In light of this, we are now searching for another provider and looking for a better way to work for both parties. We will pay the following:
- 10% as a deposit
- 50% on confirmation of page 1 ranking for all 3 keywords
- 40% after 3 weeks of getting to page 1 for all 3 keywords
If the vendor cannot achieve this, we will not pay the remaining 80% - please do not ask for money closer to time, we simply will not pay!
We will also gladly enter a monthly maintenance fee to stay on page 1. We are not prepared to pay however, for time lost from page 1 ranking.
We are also doing some of the SEO work on our own namely, the social networking elements of it will be controlled by us. Therefore, marketing on the following networks will remain our responsibility:
As such, we are looking for the following criteria from a vendor:
- A strategy on how you will get us to page 1
- Backlinks must relate to our niche
- No black hat and other unethical methods
- Exact-match anchor text must be controlled to post panda guidelines
- No links from under construction pages
- No java links, jump scripts, framed pages, redirects, cloaking, CSS redirects, 301 redirects, dynamic links, flash sites/pages, hidden links, no string parameters, etc
- No link farms, link exchange programs, and web rings
- No paid traffic sites
- No banned sites, porn, violent, illegal sites, etc
*** LASTLY, THE VENDOR SHOULD PROVIDE EXAMPLES OF PAGE 1 RANKINGS IN THEIR BID ***
In turn we will provide:
- Content or additional landing pages according the the vendor's deadlines
- Site changes according to the vendor's deadline too (so if you need it done in 48 hours, we will comply!)
We expect this work to be done over a 60 day period - if you feel this is too aggressive, please state otherwise in your bid with your suggestion. Also we will not entertain ridiculous quotes, we have had some vendors bid high amounts just to make money off the deposit!
Please feel free to ask us questions! We want vendors to ask us questions as it shows some diligence! Also, please be patient - we would like to evaluate the bids properly in order to avoid another disaster.
Please specify terms listed above in your bid (the milestones must match up)
