    Hello,

    I am a Toronto-based personal trainer, and I started my website over a week ago, and while its Alexa ranking is rapidly rising (I started around 9.9 million, now I'm around 4.8 million), and I've been building a lot of links over this time (in high-authority pages), I'm still not in the top 100 pages of Google for my keywords. I'll concede that I'm not at all technically inclined, but decided to learn the bare bones of SEO to promote my business online.

    I'm looking for someone who can get me ranked on the first page of Google

    - quickly
    - at a reasonable price (I've posted this job on oDesk.com, and got offers of $30-$50).

    In case you're curious, my website is http://www.torontofitnessonline.com and I'm trying to get ranked for the keywords "toronto personal trainer", "toronto fitness" and "toronto health."

    If you think you can help, please PM me, or send an email to [email protected]

    Have to agree with the guy above me you are not going to get onto the first page for three different keyterms by paying some random odesker $50.

    SEO is something that has to be constantly applied, it will most likely take at least a couple of months to firmly establish yourself in a decent position for each of those terms, and you should really keep doing SEO afterwards to ensure you stay there.

    I'd be willing to help you with your SEO for $250 per term per month. Thats for greyhat methods that will get you lasting results. You could pay someone else more over the short term to get instant results but the chances of you getting spanked for it are quite high.

    Regardless of whether or not you want to pay $250 a month per term (which is cheap), I would suggest you dont throw away $50 like that on Odesk. If you really want to only spend $50-100 then use some back link building packages that people offer in the services section here (check out the reviews thoroughly first).

    Thanks to everyone for your responses.

    I've already hired the Odesker, so in a month, I'll report on whether it was a success or a miserable failure.

    I would also highly advice you to add some pics to your site. It is very plain and lacking a personal feel. At least put your pic on there and maybe a shot of you training someone.

    You want to pay for first spot 50$? C'mon you will earn twice as much per hour for one customer! First spot will grant you much more customers, can't you afford proper SEO service? Do you need personal advice for taking proper steps in business?

    There are companies spending £20,000 per month to be on top of Google. Just keep that in mind.

    Don't bother reporting... it will be a miserable failure.

    50.00 may get you a spot on the first page of google but you will not stay there unless you hire one of these guys that will work on your site month after month.

    SEO is not a one time "get me to the top" deal... it's a long term project.

    I'm willing to bet with that $50.00 he wont even be able to get to the first page i checked with MS...Doesn't seem that easy! But anywho good luck...My advice is dont let anyone else do this job for you do it yourself...If you spend each night 2hrs building various links that you can find on the forums here im pretty sure you'll get on the first page within 2 months...Save your $50 dude!

    $30-$50

    yeah I can see it now - youve got a 12 yr old Indian guy hammering out links for you on a daily basis - who doesnt care whether it succeeds or fails

    get a real company that actually cares about your site... someone offered you $250 that probably fair.

    Good day!

    New site can not be ranked high as it is under filters. I can make a seo plan for you and we will follow it step by step - maybe for 4-5 month. And you will remain on google top for a long time with stable results. Playing with links and so on now will affect ony more filters and you will need to buy a new domain.

    Feel free to PM me ar any of the guys above for help - we make a really fair offer for the job.

    When you train anyone you charge money, why should not we charge money for our job?

    The site itself is awful and needs fixing. Even if anyone comes, it is 1% he will order anything.

    I can explain in Russian if you need.
