    Hi everyone, I am Phil and new to the forum (hope I am posting this in the right place).
    I have read quiet a few posts and there seem to be lots of people on here that really know their stuff and hence I decided to join.

    I am looking for a great SEO campaign and I have read through numerous of the SEO - Link building and SEO Packages posts. The problem I have is that they all look great, but was hoping that one of the more experienced members may be able to advise on which one is best value for money and most importantly trustworthy
    Reason for asking for a recommendation is that our previous SEO company was picked straight from a google search (if they are on top page they must know their stuff), but after 3 months when I asked them to show me what had been done they sent me a list of links that had been created that very day. Needless to say that google ratings never went anywhere and confidence went out the window.

    About the site. Its a prestashop based website with approximately 300 products and is targeting the UK market (also UK hosted on VPS)

    As per budget $500 is about the as much as I would like to commit as a monthly expense.

    As stated before, I am really hoping that someone would be able to recommend someone as this would give me much more confidence that simply the sales pitch (which always sounds awesome)

    Thank you in advance

    My suggestion is that you target those that offer personalized SEO, hands on for your site, that have some experience and reputation on this site and speak with them individually and ask them to look your site over and give you some thoughts as to whether they can help you or not.

    You made a good point in that you just chose a company that was unknown to you and you want one that you can have a relationship with so that you can both see things in the same manner.

    Thank you for the pointer. Is there anyone you would personally use / recommend?
    I know thats a tricky one, but I am just trying to make sure I dont end up with a marketing pitch again that sounds great but has no substance behind it.

    Thank you in advance

    Techxan would probably not be a bad choice if he would take you on... I am sure of that. Otherwise, shoot me an email - gregatbizop@gmail.com - and I'll see about getting you squared away.

    OP, You will probably get other people responding to you trying to sell their service.
    Be careful and don't jump for the most convincing sales person, look at their previous work and previous posts and see the reviews in their Sales threads.

    Both Techxan and BassTrackerBoats are great guys, very helpful and knowledgeable and are the type of high-calibre people you should deal with.
