    Hello All,


    I just recently registered as a member of this forum. I am in the midst of conducting research to start an online business and
    I am hoping that someone can refer me to an SEO/online marketing GURU (the best of the best!) in both blackhat and white who is able to answer several SEO related questions I have and provide me with SEO advice pertaining to my business venture. I would like to speak with the SEO Genius over the phone or via skype voice chat. I would gladly pay $50 for 30 to 60 minutes of the individual's time.

    Hopefully someone can provide me with a referral. Thanks so much!

    Mate, you are about to get scammed so bad lol.

    The best advice you are going to get is save your money and put it into testing your own methods after reading various posts on the forum. - Totally free by the way, no need to send me any money.

    BTW this reads as.....

    I am brand new to the forum, I am still learning about online businesses and will still believe the crap gurus tell me and buy their products. I am so new I have no idea if the advice you give me is actually good or bad for my new business venture but I am willing to pay $50 but if you spout the correct amount of crap then you can probably get me to increase this while offering me nothing at all of value.

    Hello,

    First of all i suggest you to lurk around the forum and see all the sticky threads in order to learn some basic knowledge about SEO.

    SEO isnt something you can learn via a 60min session with a so-called guru. Like Shaunm said you will just get scammed...

    Also even if some real experienced SEO wanted to give you some advice you ruined it with asking for help by a "Guru"/"Genius" this "titles" are not really welcome in this forum due to the fact that people who proclaim themselves as such usually are just crap.

    So bro, the best advice is to lurk and learn as much as you can from the Methods, Techniques and all around suggestions in the forum.

    Appreciate the honest feedback. The truth is, I'm not looking to get into SEO. Rather, I want to start a business that will require me to hire a team of SEO specialists. I'm in the midst of the research stage of starting the business, and I am seeking consultation from an SEO expert in regards to various SEO-based objectives that my employees will be responsible for achieving. If you could refer me to someone, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    you're not going to get "the best of the best" for $50 for 30-60mins of their time.

    If $50 is too cheap, I'll pay whatever the market rate is for a consultation. I just need to speak with an expert. If you're able to refer me to anyone, please let me know. Thanks.

    A better way for the OP to proceed, in addition to studying the sticky threads on SEO as above suggested, is to just pay a freelancer to review the actual site(s) in question and prepare a detailed written report on what SEO improvements need to be done, for the $50. This would be a more concrete service, that gets away from a vague "consultation" that arguably violates BHW rules.

    Hi,

    You can ask your questions here (if they are of general nature) and people will be more than happy to help you.
    If you have website specific questions, then I second the ZebraHat opinion. You better hire someone for SEO review/report for your website.

    If you still want to go with "consultation", PM me for my skype and I will help you whatever I can :)

    Why would an SEO rank sites for you when he can rank them for himself and keep all the money?

    You want to learn from the best and pay only $50? I know I would charge a lot more if I was really, really experienced. Anyways, I learned everything here and if I, a dumb fuck, can learn so can you. Good luck!

    You can not learn seo in the way your thinking seo is a life going
    commitment seo chages a lot day via day

    If you got a business you might need to employ a seo
    worker or a person that understands how seo works
    and how to apply seo tech necks,

    the best book what will help you is a dummies book in seo
    and the book covers Everythink basic to advance but like
    i say a book is out dated as you buy it but will give you
    a good go ahead in understanding seo.

    seach engine optimisation is understanding a single seach eninge workings like google or
    Maybe dont use google and study some other search engine system.

    each seach engine has there own ways to do seo so cross matching seo is hard but in most cases if your on top with google your on a winner.

    to get into seo your need to study the following.

    html understand the scripting lanuage properly.
    Then study
    xhtml understand the scripting properly.
    Then understand
    what features of xhtml are seo friendly to get noticed in google seach engine.
    Onwards
    you need to learn how to compare your website to your competitors,
    your need to outrank your compeditor by using xhtml codes and
    unique sentencing and words and articles and links and backlinks
    and pictures .
    your then need to understand you compeditors social media presence
    and out rank all there socail media likes, friends, ect ect .
    then your need to understand the power of backlinks
    and add more powerfull backlinks then you competitor
    then articles and then blogs......

    just a quick seo setup basic

    pleae be advised seo is a very huge job and needs to be
    learnt and continue to learn as it chages from day to days
    it a learning subject that never ends.

    if there was a such person classed as a guru or master in seo
    the price of there services would be thousands per hour
    seo is self learnt or would cost you millions in lessons...

    you can get really good books but there only the start as you continue to study seo
    becouse seo is for life.

    good luck
