    So this is a local professional in a small town of about 30,000.

    I was to help with SEO and to rank it in google searches..

    I would be so grateful if anyone could give me any tips or advice, I've not used Weebly before...

    I do know she has voucher $100 dollars for adwords but that's as far as I know so far..

    Has anyone tried to rank a weekly site as a main site for a local tradesperson or such...

    Any tips or advice would be excellent..

    I have no idea, :( I am hoping to suggest getting a domain, but if it's weekly I was wondering if anyone has tried it before or any tips.

    While you are limited for the onsite stuff, the true impact is going to be with links you build to the site. A combination of relevant content and a good supply of high quality links and you should be able to make the site perform well. Platform shouldn't matter all that much. So do as much as you can onsite and focus the majority of your efforts on a creative link building campaign.

    Where does it rank now? How old is the weebly domain? If its new, i would suggest the person to dump it and get a proper domain.

    Are you saying that your client has a Weebly sub-domain right now instead of a TLD?

    I've never used Weebly nor have I tried to do on-page SEO on it, but based on what I've seen, it appears that you can customise it enough to do the usual on-page SEO stuff (keyword density, slugs, internal linking, etcetera).
