    As the Title says, my GF is an interior designer in a big metropolitan area in the U.S.
    She has a website that's not getting any traffic.
    I'm pretty good at SEO so I'm going to do the SEO for her.
    I'm not pretty good at driving traffic.

    What would you guys and girls do to get targeted, buying traffic to her site?
    Obviously, we want to attract people who are looking for an interior designer
    to do some work for them, ie: buyers. We want traffic from our area, not all over the U.S.

    I thought about forum posting with sig files, guest blogging, building a blog for her, but this
    doesn't seem like it'll deliver local traffic. How about advertising on CraigsList & Backpage, etc?

    Any great local website/targeted traffic ideas?

    Thanks!

    I'd do some offline marketing, such as printing out business cards, ads and maybe setup referral system. If not just post on lots of classified sites? Kijji, Cragislist etc.

    Use geo-targeted 'buyers' keywords. That will give you the opportunity for high Google rankings.

    "Interior Designers Los Angeles"?

    Have you checked out the Google Maps cash thread? There's some pretty good geo info there that you might be able to use to your advantage?

    The 10-box info is very helpful also for geo-targeting.

    Google Maps! Yes that's a great idea!
    You mean the thread in the Downloads Section?

    Emmm how are you good at SEO when you couldn't think to place "New York Interior Design", or similar, multiple times throughout her site, and post on CL?

    These are basic strategies.

    I do have a couple of those terms on her site but by "SEO" I meant that I'm really good at optimizing Title & Meta Tags, site validation, internal linking, and getting kick-ass, high PR, **************** anchor links from .com, .edu & .gov sites.

    Good point though. Will work on adding more geo-targeted phrases to the mix.
