    Hi all, basically im sick of going round in circles for the last 4.5yrs and need someone who can confirm they can improve my uk local business site and make a start now. There will be future work in it for you from myself as we go along if we can make an agreement and are right for each other. I will state now that I don't have a massive budget this week and need to do this on an ongoing basis until we reach our goal and see what works and what doesn't. I wont hire you to do 10 mins work and walk away but maybe hire you on an hourly basis or fixed price to do certain work. I have used several people and gone round and round for years now and my rankings are dropping left right and centre after I was hacked and lost most of my content and someone duplicated it on another site. This has all been resolved now. Basically site is 4.5yrs old, tradesman in local city for keyword terms and slight variations, had lots of manual and blackhat done over the years various citations and articles etc and the site is going nowhere! im not a newbie but struggling to optimise for local results and my competitions sites are nothing special. Im round about fourth page and used to be anywhere between halfway down 1st page and more commonly second page. Its a wordpress site and so if your into wordpress that may help too. Basically I now need someone to get in touch and explain why they believe their services will work for me and ill give all relevant data over if the price is right. Im not expecting to get it done for free and appreciate a full analysis needs to be done first but im also a self employed professional with lots of overheads and professional fees and memberships and Im aware what companies try and charge out services at. As a freelancer yourself, id appreciate it if we can agree on a reasonable rate too as ive had many in the past who just want to build you a new site and charge out at hundreds of pounds. Id like to improve my site and I know I can be done and appreciate it wont happen over night or in half an hour. Im just setting out some basic info of they way id like to go so if you fancy a challenge and something in your portfolio as a local uk tradesman job then please get in touch. Those who are going to contact within seconds saying "ill do it" and that's the content of your message need not apply! someone with some decent business manners, portfolio or details of previous works and expertise would be great. I look forward to hearing from you! martin

    I would say you need to understand what's been done to your site already drop in rankings could suggest penalty. I would suggest visiting the BST section there's some respected members offering full SEO packages where they will analyse and come up with the best strategy to rank or get you out of penalty.
