    Hello everyone!

    We are owning an e-commerce website which helps World of Warcraft players achieve certain heights in the game in exchange for money.

    We've suffered hosting provider change back in October, when our SEO rankings in Google fell off.
    Now we're on the second page of Google which means we are losing 99.9999% of clients.

    Last week we've decided that buying a professional SEO audit was a good idea.
    We were wrong.

    We've found a 'SEO-specialist' at upwork.com who practically gave us nothing for $120.
    Now we're almost out of money, and it doesn't look like we're going to earn some in the nearest future to buy another audit.

    What we have now is the following:
    • A website which needs some professional care
    • A SEO audit that points out some SEO mistakes that have already been fixed
    • A pair of hands ready to work hard for own goods
    What we need :
    • A person who could take a look at our website and/or at the audit and tell what actions do we take to return to the first page of Google
    What we can offer:
    • Money
    • Barter (several options)
    Please let me know how to reach you and I'll do it tomorrow.

    Mind reading the last sentence of the poster? ==> "Please let me know how to reach you and I'll do it tomorrow."

    I'm not quite sure how you'll be able to offer money when you're almost out of money after a $120/expense, but here is some free help: have you considered trying to drum up some short term traffic using other methods? Social media outreach? Surely you must have a client list of previous customers. Contact them and offer discounts for repeat business. Setup an affiliate program and turn your existing customers into sales people. If you don't have money for affiliate software, I read an interesting article about a company that made "affiliate" links by assigning UTM parameters manually to their affiliates, then shortening the links using bit.ly and gave those links to their affiliates. Then, at the end of the month, they pulled their eCommerce conversion reports in Google Analytics and paid out their affiliates using that data. I hope things work out for you. Always ask for work samples first.

    We're not broke. We just don't have budget for something huge, that's what I meant.

    seo,

    — Affiliate program sounds like worth a discussion.
    — Our clients do have discounts. Probably, it's time to think of more sales.
    — Social Media is on its way.

    Thank you for your time.
    Still we don't understand how we lost that many positions in Google, and that's the main concern.

    There are so many Google updates happening that it's possible your server move just coincided with an update, such as Fred which happened pretty recently. I would look into which Google Updates happened around the time of your move. I imagine that had more to do with the drops than the server changes, unless you also had URL changes in the midst of the move.

    ... and by extension, if your move did coincide with an update, look at what that update targeted, and begin trying to reverse or offset the issue. If it was anchor text over-optimization, then build some links with anchor text diversity, etc.

    I believe Newbies can't start a private conversation. What do you have to offer?

    I indeed am seeking for help, but I cannot send you a PM. Could you please send me a message yourself? That's the only way we can talk in private for now.
    There's just no another option.

    Hey ! I can probably help you, I have a website which I created 6 months ago and now I have more than 4800 users every day.
    70% of my traffic come from "Organic search". I'm using only white hat SEO.
    Let me know what I can do for you here. (Cannot MP as well :p)
