    Hi.

    I made a construction company website for my brothers company. I dont live in a big country, little over 1 million people living here. Where could I start ranking the website for construction related keywords? There are some big companies with old domains, but I think it's possible to get some rank for these keywords.

    Where should I start SEO (I did on page SEO, added to some company search sites)? I haven't done this before so it's kind of new to me.

    You mean city or country with 1 million of people? You should offer some high quality service from SEO - Packages until you became a SEO specialist by yourself. Otherwise you need a lot of search and information to take steps for SEO as a beginner.

    Country. You say that you have to "work" for few weeks. What do I have to do?

    I am in the same boat as you. I did an exterior remodeling site for my dad and now we get a lead about every 2-3 days. I started with good onpage and very diverse content on the site. After that foundation is set up, think about local link building. It's pretty much all about citations.

    NAP consistency is very important for local seo, try to keep the name, address, and phone in the same format in every citation you build.
