Towards the end of last month I set up my own blog using a self hosted (I think) version of wordpress. I have been writing in it for about 3 weeks now and all I need now is a steady stream of traffic/ readers. This is where I will need your help. I am looking for someone to come in and do some SEO work so that my page ranks higher in google and the other major search engines. Through higher rankings I am hoping I can get more readers. I want to be in the top two pages for as many related topics as possible. Please outline how you will go about doing this and how it will benefit me in regards to increasing my website traffic.
My blog is about basketball, in particular the NBA. Please go have a look at my site so you can get a feel for what you will be dealing with: [url removed, login to view] . My page has google adsense on it. I would like this to be utilized as well as possible on my page.
A few things I want done:
- I want to make a move up the rankings in some of or all of the following categories:
If you can recommend more that would be great, if you cannot do all of these then that is fine too.
- I want you to make sure that my existing tags are search engine friendly and effective. If not could you please show me how?
- I want my website to be as search engine friendly as possible.
- I want it to be set up so that it can obtain a high amount of relevant web traffic.
Basically what I want is for the site to be set up for more traffic over the long term.
Although it is not really what I am after, I will be open to offers for link building as long as the traffic you drive is good quality traffic. The main reason I want to move up the google rankings is because I believe it will drive higher quality traffic, not just a high quantity of traffic.
What I have given above is just a basic outline of the kind of work I want done. So please give me as much detail as possible when submitting your proposals as I will be looking for the freelancer who can give me the best value and the best quality work. I have set the bidding for 60 days but it will likely not be up for the whole period.
When submitting your offer be as specific as detailed as you can. Make sure that what you plan on doing complies with search engine codes of practice/ rules/ laws. I pay 100% after the job is complete, so please don’t ask for milestone payments or payment upfront.
If you have any questions let me know.
I look forward to hearing from you!
