There has to be a place that does it all?

    I have a site that is grow leaps and bounds, and I know it could make it to be so much more if it was better optimized, and promoted.

    The problem is with this site between the content (which I love writing) and the backlinks and attmepting to rank it I have no time, and I have other projects going on.

    Is there a service or company that offers everything, onpage optimization, backlinking, ranking and such?

    Im not looking for 1 person that says they can do it, Ive been scammed enough with a few different people. Tried odesk and free lance, cant seem to find anyone there able to do it.

    I have a very good budget, just need a place that can do it.

    If there isnt one place that does it all, where do I begin with outsourcing?

    Its a site that needs to be ranked for quite a few keywords, that are medium competition

    Try local companies maybe? That way you can sit and talk to them

    SEO firm can scam you the same way freelancers did, you'll just pay more.

    But you can pay less to freelancers and avoid such a situations:

    - Set a few milestones
    - Demand a report of what will be done and why before each
    - Ask to change things you dont like
    - Demand a report of what has been done and why after each milestone

    - Dont pay before you like your first report (before the work begins)
    - Pay for each milestone done to keep the person motivated

    All in all you have to be the decision maker, and not the freelancer.

    Yeah I think word of mouth is the best option. Do some research on the firm first, probably yelp or similar services would have some reviews on them.

    Just verify a few things... at least...

    #1 Are they are a real company? Look them up at the the Secretary of State

    #2 Are they able to provide references; examples of their work

    #3 Is their website optimized well; do they do it all?

    #4 Do they offer direct phone support; preferably a toll-free #

    #5 Do they have a physical location; or at least a known way to contact besides P.O Box

    etc... etc.... research....

    I contacted 5 Local SEO companies, and they were all flaky.

    One Wanted over 1500 for basic backlinks,

    The other 4 couldnt be bothered to get back to me with a quote.

    I never knew it would be so hard to get something like this done. I finally have the budget just cant find any place that isnt flaky and can do it Argh!!!!

    I do this.

    Because of my own time-constraints with my company, I do outsource everything I or the customer determine needs to be done with their budget. But then I take the time researching quality freelancers and making informed buying decisions with your money.

    I will PM you my company site if you're interested. It's not AS GOOD as finding that one-stop shop, but I can connect you with one that fits your needs too.
