I am an amateur SEO geek with a working knowledge of SEO terms and techniques. I am looking for an experienced SEO professional to assist me in building links to one of my sites. I am familiar with link building services and the prices they charge, so what I am trying to do here is to find a suitable SEO expert who can do the same or similar work for the same or less money--with the idea being that other SEO work can follow if things go well in this little "test run."
Project is to build approximately 300 inbound links using GOOGLE friendly WHITE HAT strategies over several weeks. The target website is a US based health insurance business site. It is well aged but has never been groomed for SEO. Our objective is top 3 google within 6 months for our target key term(s).
NOTE: This link building project needs to meet Google standards for "counting" links. I could not care less whether any of the links "count" in yahoo, msn, or any other second tier search engine--only google counts, PERIOD. If you are not experienced with producing google-friendly links, then this project is not for you. Google analytics will be used as the official guide to determine whether a link "counts" in Google (that's fair enough, isn't it?).
ACCEPTABLE FORMS OF LINK BUILDING ARE LIMITED TO:
-Article submission (I will write articles for submission if needed)
-Directory submission (US based, relevant only)
-Social networking (no more than 10% of links)
-Deep linking is acceptable, but not to exceed 20% of links
-Any other commonly accepted linking techniques that otherwise meet with the requirements herein
-Any number of links from one particular site counts only once toward total (example: 6 links placed on [url removed, login to view] counts as "one link" from [url removed, login to view])
REQUIREMENTS OF SERVICE PROVIDER
-You must have acceptable positive feedback on THIS SITE (preferably for link building);
-You must have at least 2 years experience link building;
-You must have thorough understanding of GOOGLE WHITE HAT SEO techniques (everything else is irrelevant);
