    Hello,


    I have hired a freelancer which I found on the BHW forums. I will be documenting and reviewing the progress of the project(not only to protect each other) but to help the freelancer and anyone else looking to hire freelancers on here. The project is to get my site ranked on the 1st page of google(currently page 3 for both) for two specific keyword terms. Some key points of the project

    Freelancer being reviewed: Zebrahat

    Duration:3-4 months

    Main Objective: To rank 1st page on google search for the two specific keyword terms

    Excited and will update you guys periodically...

    I don't know why I find this disturbing. It's the whole SEO world plus more watching him.

    Do you really want those KWs shared with hundreds of thousands of internet marketers?

    I would not... you may want to edit your post, OP, as others will see your KWs and possibly compete with you as you are sharing a specific niche.

    Agreed, I'd remove the keywords asap.

    Basstrackerboats- Thank you for the advice. Post edited. Only created this thread to help the community as well as new people looking to hire freelancers. I'm sure I will end up using multiple freelancers here if things don't go straight south. Again, thanks for the heads up.

    Lanslor- The only thing I will be sharing is if the work is actually going to be done and how successful the project is. These days you can never protect yourself(and your hard earned $$) enough.

    Although I mainly expected the communication and progress shared to be between us to be by email, PM etc, I will accept this method to please the OP. This thread should probably be moved to the Journey forum.

    The two keywords were medium high competition despite their current ranking on on page 3, so I only projected higher rankings based on my recent work on other sites, not guaranteed page 1 placement. The placement is the objective, though.

    I completely agree with everything Zebrahat just stated here in regards to the keyword difficulty and the projected results.

    best of luck, no one's should be giving guarantees, but yes, it does sound promising
