Help needed if possible. I have networked to a good web designer and have been offered some work doing SEO for his clients. This would be my first professional work in the field. Need tips keeping it white hat as so much I read seems to be hard to define here. I am thinking: *Keyword research / analysis *Competitive research / analysis *Onsite optimisation *RSS submissions *Directory submissions *Article submissions *Video submissions *PAD submissions *PDF submissions *Podcast submissions *Press release submissions *Social bookmarking (depending on sites) *Increasing internal linking *Setting up web 2.0 properties (not 100% sure about this - how do you set up in a white hat way? lol) *Yahoo Answers *Blog Commenting *Forum Posting Any help would be appreciated as I am someone who has been guilty of too much reading and not enough doing. I would love to get into SEO professionally. Also what are reasonable terms to set up and how can I avoid any common pitfalls? I was advised previously 3 month contracts and then reviews with stats to support you. Obviously warn them that good SEO if often a slowly slowly approach. I was also advised that aiming for 50 backlinks per day is sensible. Thanks in advance. I always appreciate the help I have got from this forum!
