    Check this out, I don't understand what is going on. In the course of a week, my rankings exploded then fizzled. I've been sitting at #24 for a quite some time, then all the sudden I was at 4. Now I'm back down to 24 again. What gives?

    Google bot really likes you and has decided to take you out to the dance club everyday. You have to remember, Google bot really likes to dance with new people all the time. Don't worry he will eventually get tired and stop dancing. Hopefully you treat him right and you might end up getting lucky and scoring with him. Just be careful he is mighty picky and won't sleep with some one on the first date, sometimes he will go months without letting someone get lucky.

    Google rankings are always changing. If you got reduced in rankings, you should try building more quality links to your website.
    There are a lot of factors that can go into place. It's hard to tell you one simple solution to your problem.

    I think you answered your own question brah.

    First, never outsource something that you do not know how to do yourself. You will find yourself wasting away money again and again. How can you tell someone else to do something or expect results when you don't know what you are looking for or don't know how to do yourself?

    Second, learn yourself. Stop being lazy and learn SEO so that you can apply it in the long term. I am always amazed at the number of people running websites and no nothing about seo. I love going up again competitors who are outsourcing seo. Its the in house guys who test their shit that you worry about.

    Learn SEO, train a team, then create a system. Turn your outsourcing team to an "insourcing" team
