    Hey guys and gals

    Me and my wife are new to this site and we have a new start up that did really well in the test market before we opened our doors. The business is up and running and we are having an issue with our online marketing and getting our website out, not so much with in a local area but many other areas. This site gives us a lot of insight to getting everything running but i still have so many questions. Would anyone who knows a fair amount about SEO able to talk with us? A lot of the services on here look great too i just don't know what would be the best fit for our company.

    Thanks

    Canada

    Be really careful about the services you buy from here. There is a reason 95% seem very cheap. If I was you I'd reach out to fellow business owners you know and ask them for anyone they can recommend who has a good track record :)

    We offer services and products to both the business sector and individuals, more so larger corporations with in North America, US having the larger market. We are trying to get our reach out to many different areas and was wondering the best way to go about it.

    Welcome,

    by the end of the day, you'll get your PM inbox full with people trying to "advise" you and trying to sell you something indirectly.
    Others will go straight to the point offering their services, which are worth nothing.
    Be aware of both.

    From my point of view, the right services won't contact you because they know you will find them (if you search right). They are actually not begging for your money.

    Good luck my friend and work smart for success !

    Home Page:
    The best you can do is to do more research on the forum, check out the reviews of each service that finds your interest. Check out the reviewers most often you only want to look at these from Jr. Vips and with reputation i.e. registered for at least 3 years ago and are active here on the forum also not only in the BST section.

    So after a while you will also find out who are the real sellers here and who is just providing crap for cheap! And as already mentioned, you really need to be carefull with what offer you make use of in the BST section and for all the PM's that may already have overfloated your box! Don't take any offers people with status NEWBIE and make sure that the Jr.Vips you may consider offers from have a good reputation.

    This is all help I can give you, may the force be with you ;)

    You really NEED to learn about SEO as much as possible before dropping a dime on any service. I've said this many times before. But I never outsource something until I know how to do it right myself. With SEO this is especially true. And 1 thing I learned over the years... after actually learning SEO myself... I always get better results on my own then relying on anyone in the BST section.

    Not to say I never use the BST section. I do. But I use those services to "feather out" the core of my SEO campaigns which are normally controlled, managed or 100% executed by me (with help of a VA).

    It's relative to the campaign. Long term campaigns I take most the control. Short term / experimental shit I'll use services. No matter what I do though, I NEVER FORGET that nobody gives a fuck about my sites/my business/my seo/my marketing as much as I do. No matter how hyped up or good a seller may be.... they're just NOT capable of caring about your shit like you will.

    To the point. This is a great Q&A thread about PBN building: http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/pb...how-i-build-manage-and-rank-with-pbns.697565/

    Even if you have 0 intention of building a PBN you MUST READ all 45 pages of that thread. Because it doesn't just talk about PBNs it talks about SEO. Everythings talked about in detail. Anything technical you need to learn is in that thread.

    After you read that, read this thread from Tommy: http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/se...hady-read-this-before-buying-services.762081/

    Then after you read Tommy's thread, click on his name, find posts, and read every thread he's made on this forum. It's not that many (let me know if you have problems finding them). Alex will teach you the blackhat and technical side of things (which you need to know, the gears of SEO). Tommy will teach you the "whitehat" side. There was also a great whitehat course shared on here that I can upload... but I don't wanna overwhelm you that quick.

    THEN read PHPbuilts authority guide: http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/phpbuilts-idiot-proof-guide-to-authority-site-building.631067/

    That covers a lot of what you need to know about onpage SEO.

    I'd do all 3 of those things first. Then if you have any more questions just come back and ask.

    Hello buddies. I am first glad that you people atleast you are several steps up and the business is running. That usually is the challenging part of any start up. I am a software developer and also a SEO expert. I do come up with websites for clients and then help them improve the general ranking of the pages. This is aimed at expanding the target audience for any business. Therefore if you ae interested, we can be able to talk more through skype id kevmurumba.

    Hey BHW

    So been swamped the past few months and this is my update. Thanks to the people who responded with helpful tips I used them all and it made all the difference.

    I have the site up and running and used sub directories for targeting different locations. Backed this up using a lot of naps with remote offices and directory listings.

    Creating Web 2.0 to funnel traffic to landing pages for target markets and email generation.

    **** Now a proud owner of scrape box for back links, Web 2.0 blasts and competitor intell****

    Got 4 more domains with targeted keywords to start everything listed above again.

    Still learning but I'm addicted and could not have gotten this far with out you guys.

    Thanks BHW

    The Canadian
