    Hi Guys,

    I hope Im posting this thread in the right section...

    I would like to know your thoughts about this project for my Potential SEO Client. I don't really know what I should charge him and how hard it will be to rank the website for this keywords since the competition is mostly Wikipedia and Universities. What would be a fair price and what do you think about the keywords difficulty ?

    So my client would like to rank internationally for multiple keywords (not local) related to his industry.

    Here is some of the main keywords we want to target:

    operations research

    process improvement

    operational research

    business process improvement

    supply chain optimization

    optimization in operations research

    and many more related keywords.

    What do you think ?

    Thanks

    No, no seo work have been done on his website ever.

    500$ is not appropriate for this kind of project.

    That's not what I mean, I wanted to say that 500$ imo is not enough to cover such a large campaign.

    imo 500$ is for local seo not international.

    Agreed. This is a $X,XXX type of project. To be honest, you're going to have a lot of trouble outranking your competition unless you have lots of experience and know what you're getting into. Just getting on to the first page for "operations research" is going to be quite the struggle. I would say you can charge anywhere from $1,500-$4,000 IF you know what you're doing. Don't take on a job like this unless you're fully aware of what you're dealing with.

    $3K-$5k/month and tell them they need at least 3-4 months to get nice results.
