    Is anyone working through the holiday? VitaRank is gone till January 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] I believe, and seoshark hasn?t responded to anyone in a couple days. At least this is what I?m hearing from their respective threads. My time is precious, and this is the only week off I have for work. Looking for a quality seo provider that is also working through the holidays.

    I just wanted to take this time to let everyone know that a representative by the name of Singh Jatinder from softlogique seo contacted my inbox and told me to skype with him. He asked me what my key words were, ONE of them was bodybuilding, he asked me what my budget was and I said I was only spending 100 per month initially and he laughed at me and asked if I knew how competitive that keyword was? I said yes and didn't care as it was merely ONE of my keywords and was not the main one I was targeting since my domainname(phrase) gets 50k global searches a month and THAT was the main one I was concerned about. He then told me he wasn't sure 100 would cut it but he would check. I then told him his attitude was phking horrible and I would be taking my business elsewhere. Moral of the story. There's FAR too many competitors out there to laugh at your customer base. I would never dream of doing this to any client no matter how small their business was. I hope no one else approaches me with this attitude.

    $100 per month and you want to target 'bodybuilding' and other keywords? There is no reason to laugh, you're just uninformed. I literally don't do any work for $100/month, not even local keywords with 0 competition. You're targeting more than 1 keyword and the main keyword shows 61 million results and 5 million global monthly searches.

    So I have this right. You want a quality SEO provider for $100 to rank a keyword that will bring in thousands per month.

    Sounds realistic to me.

    Do some research first on the on going rates of a SEO or a link builder for that matter before hiring or looking for one that will save you from harsh comments and messages that you will about to receive. :)

    When you say 'bodybuilding' is one of your keywords.....i would say dont even include it at all cause you need big bucks and skilled provider to target that one alone..so concentrate on your other keywords and overall $100 a month will not get you anyone good unless it's a friend helping you out. I 'help out' a friend at $250 a month and thats half my usual minimum of $500 a month. not worth a good seo guys time to work for $100 a month. I make more than that a day as passive income on my own personal sites already! So why work for someone for $100 a month??

    Well it was rude of him to laugh.

    I suggest you target easier keywords, with a $100 budget you should not be targeting what big companies target, and they're spending thousands.
    You should target long-tail targeted keywords, it will work out better for you, and the money you spend will be more wise.

    You can add me on Skype:BLuka007 , I will be able to assist you with your questions etc, I am available almost anytime and there is no such thing as "Holidays" For me, even though my service is not working during the holidays (not being done by me alone so yeah.....).

    There are quite good keyword research services on this forum, I believe they charge $5 or $10 per keyword, you could buy a keyword or two... and have a provider target those. These keyword research services find easy to rank keywords, but don't forget you also need to have proper on-site SEO.

    Here's a good article on on-page SEO:
    http://www.seomoz.org/learn-seo/on-page-factors

    And here's a tool you can use to test the quality of your on-site SEO (unfortunatly, you have to signup, but SEOMoz is a great website, but it's not free, so watch out)
    http://pro.seomoz.org/tools/on-page-keyword-optimization



    I don't know how experienced you are in SEO, so don't find any of the above info rude or such , please :) Just pointing them out , not directly to you, but to the public, as many make mistakes with on-site SEO which is very important that have good on-site SEO, it makes the ranking a lot easier/better.

    You should be thanking him for laughing at you...

    Your expectations are completely unrealistic and you are in need of a serious reality check.

    The more constructive reply that summarises the opinions here is that you need to do some keyword research and pick some keywords that are achievable on that budget - maybe you should be looking at low competition keywords with 1k-5k local exacts?

    Don't kill the guy for having a budget though, at least he is being realistic.

    that was merely one of the keywords. my exact match domain name is a 22k a month local search with low competition. I'm still building the friggin site I wanted to run some SEO as im drilling it with new content to get started early on page ranking, i don't see how that's ridiculous????

    I had a client once targeting body building supplements and such. Not an easy space, but good $$ if you have the right product (he manufactured his products so that's huge profit) and can achieve the placement.

    Edit: his budget was over 2k a month.

    You need to be quite careful with your 'definitions' in SEO. If you're targeting the bodybuilding niche for $100 then there are long-tails you could find. The traffic might be very low, but I wouldn't Pre-judge your business plan or ROI as you may have found something worthwhile...

    But, you stated bodybuilding as a keyword; which is very specific and why you're getting these kind of responses. You'll find plenty of SEO services for under $100 that run through Xmas, but managed, personally-directed SEO from a pro will be a LOT more expensive. I have multiple 'link building and SEO services' for around $47-67 (Backlink Banzai, Wiki Whirlwind and UberToolz are the 3 most well-known) but my personal rate is around $1k per day; and I'm fully booked-up by corporates (only have time for 2 days per week.)

    All the tools services will be working and there will be plenty of guys in the BST thread who need the money!

    Good luck, and Happy Christmas!

    I'll be working after Xmas day this week, and have researched 4 low competition keywords per $25 for a niche, plus written 12 articles based on the kws for $50. So for a one-off $75 package I could provide SEO work this week.
