    My family owns a real estate company in Orange County, CA and have gotten around to asking me if I could help them with their online marketing... Specifically SEO. So I took a look and here is an example of what I'll be up against:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=lagu...s=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

    Seeing authority sites like Yahoo in the first few results told me "no way" at first.. But then I saw the fourth result: "lagunaoc.com" has only been around for about a year :eek: So I'm thinking.. If they can do it.. why can't I? Then again, they may have spent thousands and thousands to SEO firms to achieve those results. What do you guys think?

    It's pretty competitive, a lot of money in real estate. Especially in a place as famous as laguna beach. I think your going to need a good domain. Not sure what their domain is but having the keywords in it is really going to help you out.

    It's definitely doable though. Good luck my friend.

    Assuming you're talking residential real estate, definitely you want to work on getting them a top spot in Goog places for the local area (get them some good reviews). If there is more than one office make sure each is listed. Then you also want to use the keyword tool to find what phrases you should optimize their site for. If you're showing listings, you might also want to read threads here relating to e-commerce since many of your pages will appear similar.

    I mean I have money to invest in this project, almost all the time in the world, and no deadline. So like I said, if lagunaoc.com can do it.. why can't I? That is unless they have a team of SEO guys working round the clock to achieve their rankings... But 2.5k links isn't very much to try beat, right?

    3rd is Easy.... should take 1-2 months.

    Top 2 are significantly harder to achieve however the value of a single lead in that niche makes it worth a considerable investment.

    My advice: get No 3 yourself and start generating new leads. Use those funds to hire an outside professional SEO firm to move you up the rankings further.

    it's tough to say if your competitor is using SEO company or doing it himself... I believe a person should do what he do best... So if you got good skill in SEO and enough time then do it and if you don't then pass it to some one who is good in it. You can't do everything by yourself that's why work where you are best.
