    I was contacted by a bar owner wanting to advertise on my site. What should I charge for the various sizes? They also want SEO services. What's a good monthly/yearly fee for this?

    It's in a major city.

    Thanks

    I minimum start at $500/month...no contract.

    Think about it this way, why do SEO for them when it could be your website? If that keyword has traffic go after it.

    Worst case scenario you sell it..and break even @ flippa...I always do that.

    Thats a tough question when you don't give your domain PR, indexed pages, if its a sitewide link or homepage link. How much traffic does your site receive? What niche? How well are you ranked? For what keywords?

    That will help us gauge how much you could charge for an advertisement. Some ads are $20/mo while some can charge $10k/mo.

    The keyword gets about 32k Exact searches with 68 million page results and I'm on the first page third listing. They just want a homepage link.

    Still need more info to give you an idea.

    What is your pagerank?
    Is the link sitewide or only the homepage?
    How many visitors does your site currently get a month?
    What niche?

    If you want to obtain him long term, you'll have to figure out how many visitors you get daily, and make it a reasonable price.
    If he finds out he's paying $500 for a site taht gets 20 visitors a day, he won't keep that up too long.

    You need to figure out how much you approx can make from Adsense, CPA and other IM options. Then make a "package price" where they get some discount if they sign up for a year.

    Remember to keep it as a win-win situation so you increase your chance to prolong your deal.

    You may also ask the party what is the best thing you want to pay and sometimes it automatically gets the best deal for you. :)

    the best way to asses any website potential earning to check with g00gle adsense how much your compititors are paying for the same keywords. to get the best idea on it.. there is one website on it i found some days back and i steal all the information of my compititors on how much they r spending on the keywords.
    better u check urslef Spyfu... and learn how it works
