Hey BHW, I would like to apologize if this is not the right thread section to post in. I got one client ( a friend of mine) about almost 2 years ago to build him a website. So I did using yolasite (a free web builder, I am an amateur at this lol) So I built the website using yolasite tools, obviously it sucks. he payed me 200 bucks, i thank him for trusting me and not pushing me to my promise of what I had to deliver. Which is traffic for his business and leads he could sell to other local business partners. The site is called eugeneroofcleaningdotyolasitedotcom ( its about pressure washing). I have taken what I have learned in BHW since I joined this site and tried applying to his site just mentioned. He has only gotten bites (about 4 people in total) but nobody willing to sign on for a contract.I have done like 4 or 5 submissions to free web directories and have seen some traffic.Im shocked But in one of the submissions I was told that there is no meta tags. meta tags? And that it would be hard for google to index my site or find it? something of that sorts.I cant even find the site on google. Im lost in what I need to do to optimize his site for local search.and get him some paying customers What am I doing wrong? -is it backlink problems ( still trying to learn this backlinking) -do i need to set-up manually web 2.0 properties ( this seems like hard work) -do i need to write articles but what good is that if its a local business Please help BHW or point me to the right direction, I would like to make this a business. I see the hispanic market being a big market for SEO consultancy.
