Before I continue... If you are an outsourcer or a large company, please DO NOT BID as I am looking to work closely with a talented INDIVIDUAL on this project, and potentially other future projects.
I am looking for a SEO-orientated web designer who is familiar and comfortable with modern SEO techniques, and can implement these techniques when re-designing my site.
The website needs to conform to all W3C standards. It needs to include a site-map, SEO-friendly menus, create and optimize CSS file with stylesheet, define H1 and H2 tags, etc.
I would like the site to have a similar "look and feel" to the existing site, but I am happy to listen to any suggestions you make for the new site.
The most important thing about the re-build is that it conforms to all html validations and standards to gradually help improve its search ranking, and that it will be easier to update once a CSS and stylesheet has been incorporated.
Please see the attached document for further details.
The budget is relatively low because I am not asking for an entirely new web-site. I simply need it re-designed to be SEO friendly. This should take an expert web-design freelancer no longer than 2-3 days.
Please note: You must be also be able to provide examples of previous work.
