I took a break from SEO and all that stuff and I am trying to get back on it. I just got a new client that wants to rank his website for one word keyword and rank it #1 on the specific Google for a country. I am looking for some sort of tips on: 1. how to sell myself to him (sign contract and get paid well as he wants me to provide a proposal) 2. current white hat techniques 3. program for keyword research (Google Keyword Tool is gone now and I have no clue how to use that new tool). 4. some sort of progress tracking so I can show him that I am doing work. 5. how to make sure that I am not responsible for Google updates and all that stuff in case website goes down? Thank you so much. I know that is a lot of questions.
