    Hey,

    I`m moving to an island in the Canarys called Fuerteventura to a town called Caleta de Fuste. Fuerteventura is called the Hawaii of Europe because of the excellent surfing possibilities and Caleta de Fueste is basically the biggest tourist town there.

    I`m meeting up with a friend who offers SEO services in that town and I`m wondering how could I make use of the situation.

    Got any suggestions?

    local business seo is the most obvious as most do not know the costs so they can be very lucrative

    Also when you are on the ground I am sure many site ideas will crop up

    One thing I am working on in a tourist area is ranking a site re hotels, the plan is simple rank it high and sell it to the highest bidder locally, then have a monthly maintainence contract to keep them ranked

    I was amazed locally when I searched for hotels and found some of the biggest names with 1000 rooms not on the first 7 pages

    easy pickings, enjoy

    Thank you for your input!

    I`m also open to any joint venture ideas and also OFFLINE ideas since the islands economy is like 95% off tourism and selling for an example those cheap gyrocopter shits can also bring in quite a big profit I think.

    My friend went down there to do that surfing with the kite that drags you. Start buying those businesses up and you're good.

    I lived in Gran Canaria for a while, which is just beside the place.
    Hit me up with PM and I will give you some tips, as there is some issues for IM people to live and work there.

    You could trap canaries, and sell them to tourists.
