So, I need a decent SEO person to get some terms to the front page of google for a bunch of different clients site of mine. I would like you to stay somewhat white-hat, or at least keep whatever black hat method your doing a couple of steps removed from the main site. I know some of the terms I want ranked are competitive and may take some time for them to rank. I want someone with a verifiable portfolio, I feel like every time I post in here I get someone who has only like 3 post, and doesn't even know what a portfolio is, nor can show me examples of their past work. So it's a must have that you have examples of past success and possibly references I can call to verify. For the first round I want you to rank a couple of keywords for me with one client. I'm willing to pay half up front, then the other half when they rank and rank steady for at least 2 weeks. I'm willing to put the money into an escrow, granted we have a signed contract, and release the money out of escrow once the job is complete. So rest assured I will pay you if you do the job. In future dealings I will have no problem paying you monthly to support the keywords and upfront on all future keywords once I know you are not going to rip me off . Edit: PM me for the site and keywords. These are all competitive and high traffic keywords, so I would like to start with one keyword, see how you do, then start you on the other keywords/clients. This should be a long term job, possibly full time with revenue sharing if you produce. Let me know if anyone is interested, and PM me with what you think the pricing should be for each (since I know the work will vary for each keyword).
