    How do you determine them? Do you guys do it by keyword?

    I will be outsourcing most of the work my agency takes on. So they'll be a variety of link building, technical SEO and content being outsourced to different people. What would the best pricing structure be?

    Best way to do it is to not have a set price. But base your pricing on how much work and time you have to put in. Ranking someone for bobs sour bread will be easier than ranking for someone for the term real estate.

    time I cant spend on my projects and loss on feature earnings
    =
    price/hour for clients.

    the more you value your own time, the more you will charge clients - keeps the rotten tomatoes of them away too

    Your process would be different is you are doing local vs national.

    Also depending on what you are charging and what you can do.

    Say if you are going to do a press release. you have to factor in your cost to get it written and then say PRweb cost. Then your cost for doing all that. Then if you are going to do local submissions and so on.

    The best thing to do is put up a test site and rank it and see how long and what all you had to do to get it done.

    For each client I roll two dice and multiply the numbers together. That number is then my hourly rate for the client.

    +1 for that idea.
    Hope you use at least two 1D10 for that.

    1D100 could be easier for you.
