    Hello, I have found out something.
    In my area people are paying 500 a month for Local seo, one of my friends is paying 500 a month for his business and the guy is ranking him for like 10 searches a month keywords, keywords like for example" plumbing in Crestview" "Plumbing in Ekrsin Park " and would be ranking on page 1 but the URL would be like plumbingservices.com/plumbing-in-crestview but when you click on the link it just redirects you to the homepage is this guy shit? or is that a quite a good method? cant you rank higher if you had a specific page for every suburb with content that can rank you?, any ideas on how I could start in this field?

    Ive been reading here and there about Local SEO, but how do you guys think i should start?
    Should I open up a website and reach out to local businesses asking if they want to rank?
    is Local SEO difficult?
    How can they pay me monthly?
    is Blackhat SEO on Local seo a bad idea? Like if i fuck up their website im fucked..
    What happens if they are paying me and i cant rank them fuck all ? LOL
    Just any tips would help, because I have no Idea where to start.

    Seriously, looking at your previous posts it looks like you have still got a lot to learn about SEO.

    I suggest learning to rank your own sites before taking on clients.

    The alternative is to gather leads then outsource the work or sell them.

    Start Having leads before start-/ Make sure you have clients to work with .

    Depends on Competition- You wouldn't want to rank a site in newyork for competitive KW.

    You'll be damned

    I'd suggest you learn as much as you can about seo over the coming 18 months, 2 years before considering this.

    One option is whitelabel, however you need to know what you're talking about to be able to sell that too.

    Don't sell to Germans then, I focus on Americans. I really like to take their money = )

    Also for anyone with 0 SEO skills
    seoreseller.com

    There are many companies like these guys, charge client $800-$1200
    Then pay $400-$600 to SEO reseller, who lets you have your own branded reports ect.

    NO NO NOOOOOO! Don't offer SEO services if you don't know what is that. By reading this i got panic too.

    LOL!

    Anyway least for me there is nothing called white hat or black hat for SEOs ;)

    Learn SEO and ofc you can do. It's not rocket science. I am not an SEO expert (is really there seo experts lol ?) but i am pretty sure you can learn it with trial and errors.
