    I run a couple websites, but looking for edge on SEO. I get a ton of calls every week trying to sell me on things, but I would rather find a pro to deal with one on one. I develop in Joomla and do the basic SEO with categories, url, menu alias, etc. I spent decent money in PPC and seek to boost organic.

    Why not learn proper SEO and outsource link building? You could get some great services on BST.

    Ursuake, thank you for responding. I have a profitable day job, so my time for SEO is limited. Proper SEO? Heck, there's always some one that knows more than you. I've had people trying to sell me on stuff that clearly had less SEO/tech knowledge than I do. I just try and be straightup about my strengths and weaknesses.

    That being said I have been a long timer lurker on these forums and have been reading and learning a good deal. Right now I am doing my first test BST on a minor site and making sure to steer clear from SAPE and stuff that might get me google slapped. I also bought a few 5+ year old domains. I'm looking for edu and gov backlinks.... think I am doing at least enough of the right stuff. Any recommended BST?

    I think my on page SEO is already there. sf404sef is largely not needed with Joomla 2.5, and I have it all configured anyways as legacy from when my main money site was 1.5.

    Site 1 - I am top 10 in y and b, but around 30 in g
    Site 2 - Number 1 or 2 in y and b, bouncing like crazy in g

    I have about 10 more I am starting to focus on, and considering offering the SEO as a side job for my niche down the road. It would obviously be in non-competing geographies. The junk they try to sell us is abysmal, and that led to me having to do personal study.
