    I wanted to get few ideas from you guys ...

    Currently, I have about $3000 monthly spend budget for SEO for my local service business (limos).

    What is the best bang for my buck in terms of investing that?

    Should I be buying link packages, posts, hire someone to do in house, blog network or anything at all?

    Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated,


    Thank you,

    Whatever, you will probably fuck up along the line if you don't know what you are doing, and I'm implying you don't if you are considering buying link packages to rank a business website.

    Whats the point of typing if you just leave a unless negative comment just to bring people down, that doesnt help anyone.

    I could say learn and do it yourself, but to learn you need to know where to get the information, because it's not like reading for a few weeks that you will be a seo guru. So that solution is out of the way, next one would be hire someone who knows, but then again, what proof you can get if you don't know at what to look for to determine weather someone is good or not.

    Buy some MNS's targeting your local area, and C&B the fuck out of them. While they are ranking, collect leads or redirect the traffic to "money site". Simple.

    1K parasite content, 1K link building the rest add to the quality of money site.

    Get somehow to local news.
    Find someone who looks like 50 cent or some celeberty, put a bunch of whores around him in the limo and make picture, where somewhere on the door is your firm logo.
    And send pictures to newspaper.
    Or not.
    Think some creative shit that gets viral in your town.

    You should allocate some to social media ads too.

    Easy now, he does make a valid point. Local SEO is different, and you do not use blackhat techniques to rank them because google updates can gut your rankings, and Google has a special "local" algorithm for small businesses to qualify for that allows local brick and mortar establishments to compete with national competition.

    Limos are especially competitive, and compounding the problem is that the website needs to be very elegant and professional. You are targeting the higher economic spectrum, and you need far more than an online business card.

    With the kind of budget you have, you can rank organiclly, and with the local algorithm. Yu need to start by getting as many high qulality citations as possible. Find someone who knws how to build citations the right way, and get as many as you can from quality local directories. With your budget, look carefully at a few of the paid directories, Yahoo may be a good choice for you to join, and there are probably some industry directories that you need to identify and sigh up for as well. Above all, make sure all your citations match exactly the Google + business page AND you choose the right category for your citations. Behind NAPW, the category is most important.

    Get your website up to the grade of a photography gallery and pay someone to do the keyword research necessary to hone your onpage seo. Google must understand exactly what each page is about. Plan on continually adding quality pages.

    Reviews are also very important and you need an active review funnel. For limo's, video reviews are pure gold. get the reviews scattered all over the place if possible.

    Be extremely careful when link building. If you get an unnatural link penalty, it will be at least a 50 point drop in ranking for the affected keywords, and that effectively kills the business.

    Instead, try to earn links. A limo service can do these things by offering the local homecoming game the use of their limos for the halftime show, or thru giveaways and contests, sponsoring local sorts teams, and other ways that show you are active in the community.

    The links you get from local entities are extremely powerful. Your active link building should be slow and deliberate, focusing only on EARNING quality related links, no spam or spun anywhere because a customer may read it. You need an active backlink outreach effort.

    Rely heavily on social media focusing on local groups and entities.Use press releases, or social media ride-alongs,anything that will bring in a video viewer.

    Right now you need someone who understands local SEO to do it for you, or to teach you how to do it for yourself. If you carry on with plans to rank this site like a blackhat IM site, you will in time destroy it.

    Linking blasts, blog networks, things like that are a kiss of death to a local business. Real local businesses do not act that way because they have a business to run, not an SEO agency.

    Announce a total prize of $2000 (may be $2500 at the most) and a competition to get your 5 sites (or pages) the 1st rank (or even up to #3) in Google for 5 (or whatever number of) keywords each within a month or two or whatever you think is the time required to get those pages on top. You decide whether you want the pages on top the BH, GH, or the WH way... I suggest that you should pay at least total $2000 prize money times number of months you think it will take to see the result. (also change any or all of the above figures to your liking. :))

    It's a fair competition, so if they don't achieve #1, #2, or #3 ranks then they don't get paid... but I think, that you will still give some consolation prizes knowing that you're too kind!:) It will produce results for you, and you'll also know who are the experts. The latter will be your biggest gain!

    At the end of the month or the time you decided earlier, get a full SEO report from those who topped (or even took them to 2nd or 3rd position) those sites, and then give away those prices. $400 or $500 pm is a great income for many in my part of the world especially if those workers are skilled, but who haven't yet got the chance to prove their expertise to others.

    Do this every month or every time period for 5 different sites (or pages) and you'll see that you not only top ranking pages, have a new and success-oriented SEO business on your hands, but also have a team of top SEO experts who know their business like the back of their hand. :) You may not get experts from the top western countries for that price, but the ones you will get would be real experts nevertheless.

    Increase the prize money and you will definitely have a great team on your side within few weeks or months.

    And, if you like the idea, you can send me some $$$ my way too. ;)

    I'd invest that on the SEO-related bussiness I'm building, but I guess that doesn't help you much. Depending on how productive you are, delegating stuff could be very profitable though.

    Hire a guy that has an understanding of how to rank a local business and does it professionally like the guy that wrote all the below... in fact, just do yourself a favor and hire him specifically.

    1. Buy ******** links for HighPR websites ( not cheap )
    2. Create 10 limo websites
    3. Find package of good links
    4. Point link from 3 to 2.
    5. Wait 2-3 months. In the mean time buy new links - do not push much
    6. Slowly 301 to domain after 6 months when you done with #4
    7. Wait for results.

    tip : Buy "local links" also.
