hi guys, I discovered this site while trying to optimize my own business site. I have enjoyed SEO soooo much. I enjoy the creativity that it takes and the trial and error. I like it more than my real job. well, couple of days ago I posted an ad on craigslist for seo services (as a joke). I never thought anybody would contact me, given the 100s of other people offering the same service. then today this guy contacted me! But I feel so nervous because I feel like I dont know how to handle clients. here are my questions: how do you handle fees? do you charge monthly? do you get paid ONLY if the client's site goes higher in the search results? what about writing articles? who writes those, you or the client? I told the client to write some articles and we can post them to article sites, but now I feel like that's my job, no? Do you get paid for writing these articles? how much am I supposed to charge? what do you do when the client's site is so terrible that you have to basically rewrite the whole site to make it search engine friendly? this guy's site is basically a picture, no text. it has been indexed by google but it does not appear in the first 100000 results for his keywords!
