    Hey Guys/Gals,

    I'm looking for someone NOT from India or the Philippines to do some SEO (mainly off-site link building) for my website. This is a professional website and I'm willing to pay $750/month for QUALITY work. Looking for someone talented, has plenty of experience (at least 3-5 years), can PROVE him/herself as someone who can generate real lasting results that are panda/penguin proof. I don't want quick, over-night rankings. I want links that are legitimate and that Google can never complain about. Don't come to me with a "package" of forum profiles, etc. None of that BS! No Xrumer BS. This is a legitimate website and I can't have that crap.

    If I like your work I can bump it up to $1000/month and this may turn into a long lasting partnership for other projects. PM me for details as I can't share information publicly.

    Results desired: 5,000-10,000 pageviews/day of quality traffic. All I will say here is that this is in the medical niche. If you think you are a serious candidate please contact me, otherwise do NOT waste my time. I will be reviewing all contacts in the next 1-2 months (maybe less) and will make a final decision.

    PM me!

    You want professional work but your only willing to pay max $1k monthly for medical niche looking for 5k to 10k page-views daily. Stop wasting your time and if you really want a professional company so bad that is not from "India" or some similar continental area go to Google and search for SEO and click on one of the banner ads for the big companies that can get you what you are looking for and be prepared to pay more than your current budget.

    This person is dumb saying he does not want some one from India he is going to waste his money. People from India who do SEO are able to do just as good work as any other country and they will charge less because of the currency conversion rate. Your $1k spent in a US company will just be used to out source back to India or 3rd world countries and the fat man profits on your ignorance. Go direct to the source man plenty of good SEO people on this site from India that will see your post and think wtf.

    I just dont get why you dont like SEO services from India or Philippines?

    Some big SEO companies on US outsourced their services from these countries.

    Actually, you are incorrect. The Want To Buy section is for buying specific items/products, not services.

    The correct section for hiring someone to provide an ongoing service such as this, is the hire a freelancer section.

    Either way, that is a pretty poor reason to neg rep someone. Better to just try to help them since they might not be aware that section even exists. Don't see how that deserves them losing reputation.

    One reputable link will cost $500/year easy.
    One/two reputable post will cost $500 lifetime.

    $1000 is small cash for something like that in my opinion.

    This is normally the type of client we take on -- but I think your slightly misguided in wanting the world for what is a competitive niche - with a budget of lets call it $12,000 a year.

    I'm not sure given the amount of hours of manual work your looking for equals the pay scale/budget.

    As far as the other poster saying most USA firms outsource their work - look sometimes we do outsource as well -- but as the clients budget rises -- we do the work manually .... it's only when people come with $300 budgets that we are forced to outsource or pass on the client -- we personally pass on those type of clients these days.... the reason for this is we have to get results so we stand behind the work we provide... as outsourcing is hit or miss.

    Thanks for the help guys. Not hiring from India & Philippines because they don't conform to the quality SEO standards that I have in place.

    Thanks!

    For your requirements you're looking at a $5K minimum. If you can afford that then I'm willing to discuss business with you that will conform to your standards and requirements.

    Acquiring the high PR links and keeping things squeaky clean white hat costs far more than $1,000. If anyone tells you otherwise they are just trying to take your money. Quality white hat links are hard to come by and cost serious cash.

    For example, a single high PR contextual link (one of the best types of links) can easily cost $15.00 or more to obtain.

    I disagree completely, and I would be so bold as to say YOU are just looking to take his money.

    Just hearing anyone describe a cost for a single link, is a sign that they really aren't familiar with a white hat frame of mind. I would never put a cost on a single link, not even as an estimate or anything. This client is looking for a measurable success of pageviews per day of quality traffic, so in addition to SEO, you could aim for other methods of promotion which provide for SEO benefits, but also direct traffic benefits.

    His post doesn't even cover how many months he is looking at employing someone for and what time frame he is looking to reach his results in, so quoting him a month estimate of $5,000 per month, is highly unprofessional. I know you want to throw a number out there, and hope that he bites, but this isn't the place to be selling your services publicly. And you should know that as you have been here a long time.

    To the op, no legitimate person can quote you a price without even seeing your website. So when people are offering you quotes like the guy above me, take that as an understand of the kind of people NOT to hire. I am not trying to be a jerk to the_demon, but I think it is pretty clear from his offer he is just fishing for a sale at a very high cost, and hoping you will bite. The first thing I ask people who want specific results, is to let me see their website, and their current stats.

    I will say it again: No legitimate White Hat SEO provider will ever quote you a price without seeing your current site, and also your current stats. It just doesn't make sense.

    Increasing the visitors by 500 per day is obviously a lot easier than increasing by 5000 visitors.
    There are numerous onsite factors to consider which might be the ONLY things that need to be changed to reach your traffic goals.
    Do you already gain links to your site naturally?
    Is your websites content targeting the wrong keywords and giving Google the wrong impression?
    Does your website have a strong social media following already that can be exploited?

    There is so much that should be considered and examined before anyone jumps to a price. Price is the absolute last thing I negotiate with a client, not the first.

    I am not here to sell to you, just here to help.

    Are you surprised that some people on BHW are just here to share in conversations of experience and their knowledge with each other, and not here to sell? Ask the OP what message I sent him and how much I quoted him. Well, you would confuse him if you did, because that isn't why I am a member of BlackHatWorld. Some people genuinely enjoy trying to help people succeed in life, and not get ripped off.

    So tell me, where have I ever tried to sell anything to anyone? Maybe you shouldn't speak without any evidence to back up what you are saying.
