    I do not know much about IM and seo, just basics, have been reading last month every day this forum and now i need to start seo for my website.

    What strategy to choose?

    1) pay a freelancer or company for monthly seo job
    pros: they know if they dont deliver results i can always hire someone else.
    cons: I think they will always use single link building strategy for my website.

    2) regularly buy well rated one time payment services
    pros: different link building strategies used from different sources.
    cons: No one takes responsibility if website is not ranking.

    Another thing i want to ask is if traffic delivery services and social signal services play any role in SEO rankings? Or it is all completely down to backlinks.

    You should prepare first your strategy, then hire a freelancer that is doing SEO but you have to follow up his activity, do not let him to give you fake results or strategy, just follow up his work day by day, hour by hour and then you can have some nice results.
    Anyway if you decided yourself to do that - start it and take it step by step

    You can do both. But I want to advice you use HIGH PR WEB2.0 site as like flickr, liverjournal and others. Make sure you made approximately 24 accounts and post daily unique content on it. So you will get effective result in very short time. My websites was not good at ranking. I am using VITARANK agency and use the strategy which i already suggest. Hope it can help you.
    Thanks. :)

    Try it all. Seo is always about testing and finding the perfect balance between your time and ROI. Social signals personally has been more of a way to keep your site from being slapped into the abyss as soon as it creeps on the first page.

    For most niches it won't matter much, but for the ones that are constantly manual reviewed, it helps to blend in with the big brands.

    It is important that your SEO strategy includes SEO copywriting because of the need for fresh content. It is important that new pages or articles are added on a regular basis as it can help expand your reach with more keywords and ways your visitors can find you. Having fresh content is also one of the important SEO ranking factors.

    I think you should hire some professional SEO and keep a track of his activities... you can ask them for report every week...

    Also, Traffic delivery services and social signal services do help in search engine ranking but it is not very effective for long term...

    I would choose the 2nd option - far more flexible, but there are no guarantees no matter which way you decide to go

    Use one of the BST's here that offers vast diverse link building on a monthly basis. Make sure it provides tracking of your keywords,and you can monitor performance month to month. If it's not giving you results you'll know within a few weeks.

    I don't think the second option works anymore. SEO is all about plan and implementation. It need discipline and action. random backlinking is a waste of time and money.

    Learn to do it yourself so you know which strategy works (just checked out the BSTs). Then outsource to your SEO VA's for $3 per hour :)

    Hire a freelancer or good provider and ask them to make a plan for you. Asking for trial to test. If you see fake links or not quality content, let set up your own plan by yourself and ask them to follow as RosuC mentioned.

    I think first time you should learn to do it yourself. You will have same fails, but you will know how seo works, how seo strategies can change when you are less expecting and in this way you will know if your man in seo takes his job seriously or not. You have to be very carefull, because there are many people who says are a SEO strategist and maybe they are not so good. Also, there are some seo plugins pretty cool and easy to use. You can start with them. I use All-in-One SEO for settings and Squirrly SEO for writing articles. I recomand to you to try Squirrly SEO. You can learn many stuff about seo from this plugin. And after you know a little bit more about seo you can hire someone :)

    The problem with hiring someone else to do it is one you are paying someone else part of your hard earned money and two you don't know what they are linking your site to. That being said if you are not a good driver yet, it may be best to let someone else drive :p

    I have used outsourced SEO on WF and I got great results so it's not out of the question just make sure they have great testimonials and they are responsive to your questions. Just don't bug them every time your site jumps and drops (they really hate that) :D
