    I'll be launching a new and more complex website in a month or so, and I'm thinking of hiring a someone to work some magic.

    I want them to help get the site indexed more (10 million plus pages), need back links, need some creative seo video's, articles, etc, etc....
    They would need to do some research on my competitors, and figure out the good keywords.

    How do I know which company is capable of delivering?
    I mean all these companies talk the talk, but who is right that can deliver?

    Do I get people/companies to put a total plan together on what they would do stage to stage, and month to month to keep the traffic coming in?
    Would this person or company supply that information before signing them on?

    Changing your font into white (since BHW's background is black) is a great start :p

    Ask for Proof. See if they have any other clients. If they do have any other clients ask for referrals.

    Search for that company on google See if they have complaints or bad stuff about them on there.

    If you pick someone from BHW, Check out their posts Search their name in the search box make sure they know what they are talking about.

    I've had plenty of people ask for referrals and i've always been more than happy to give them out.

    Just check their profiles, background, and reviews of other clients. if you are sure about your their capability, then you could start.

    The problem is everyone says their good, everyone shows some sites they've worked on, and they all show an increase in their customers traffic. But my site is very different then 99% of the sites on the internet. (I cannot share that information on here) But lets just say my site is number driven, and is way over 10 million pages.

    I guess I need to see some prior work completed on for more larger companies, not your local book store, and the local pet store.

    I've even tossed around the idea of giving a percent of the profit, so that they work to seriously drive traffic.

    Yeah I guess it's hard to know specially if your site is 99% different than the rest.

    Do you know much about SEO? I mean since Penguin/panda? cause it's deff not the same game since those came along. If you know about SEO since penguin/panda Ask as many questions on the phone as you possibly can.

    I dunno tough call I guess. :(

    In Dirty SEO Niche
    Look for real people 1st. Most of seo providers don`t share there personal details. But serious people in this niche have on there site phone, address, picture. Ask questions, because you are the customer. That is your money.

    You say, your site is different. Type in Google keyword phrase and look results on 1st page. Ask site owners who make there seo. Say you love they site and look for recommendation about web design, seo, sem, etc.

    And remember that good seo company will offer results, not only links. And of course this is long term game, don`t believe in miracles for one time package/blast, links.

    I agree with this, it's hard for me to trust people that cannot get their own site ranked.

    I guess the issue is, I'm not a web person. I need someone to step up, look at all the information, and tell me what plan they would bring to the table.
    I want it done piece by piece. Some people say write articles, and post them. Some people say you need back links. Some people show me local businesses they've worked with, and say look what I did here for aunt milly's pet salon...

    I need someone to put together a 2-3 month plan, and we examine this with what the big G is currently doing, and go from there.

    SO WHO'S READY TO PLAY?!?!?
