I have a travel site ([url removed, login to view]), we specialize in discounted Business Class airfare. I don't have online checkout, the site is for information only, so people can see sample fares. Clients must call us to book their flight. Currently we advertise on Google sponsored search, and have a bad Google PageRank for the organic search. The main goal is to lower our costs for advertising by bringing us up to 2nd or 3rd position with certain keywords on the organic search as quickly as possible, and to increase the number of calls. I also need advice on what to do with our current site to make it more findable. My understanding is that we need link building (backlinks) to give us a better ranking and also need to add more text to be more search engine friendly. I also need a landing page for better click to call conversion, and to update the flash we currently have for faster load time.
-we prefer someone from the San Francisco Bay Area
- No Spam methods
- All optimisation must be offsite first and then loaded onto the platform once its complete.
- No Administrator Access to website provided until the sample is finished.
- New back links need to be permanent, one-way and from different class-C IP addresses
- No methods that will get our site blacklisted by Google or other search engines
- No FFA, link farms, Pharmacy, Gambling, etc.
I'd like to hire an honest person who knows what s/he is doing. I will pay for results only and not for a waste of everybody's time. Therefore,
25% of payment made once the HTML and FLASH work is finished. The other 50% of payment will be made when Page Rank 2 or 3 reached, with the keywords we select. Remaining 25% when Page Rank 2 or 3 is maintained for one month. Only 25% of payments will be made if Page Rank 2 or 3 is not achieved.
We have a second website project coming up, and we would like to work with the same person if the results for this project are successful.
I'd like to clarify:
-Our site has been on Google's Natural and Sponsored search for several years and we already have a great Google Page Rank...I'd like to improve our Position placement.
-We have a strong presence established on Google already, so this job should not be extremely difficult and should not take too long. I am on the first page in 3rd-6th position for a few specific keywords like discount business flights and cheap business airfare and others. However, my site is on the Second page for the General keywords which get the most impressions, such as business class airfare, business class tickets and business class flights and a few others for the organic search which is my MAIN concern.
-I'd like to bring us up for those most popular words from the second page to 1st-3rd place on the first page, and for the other keywords bring up from 3-6th position up to 1st-3rd position.
-I need the landing page (php/html) to be finished asap.. preferably within 7-10days as my current click-to call ratio is horrible and my pay per click budget is going to waste. I have a sample of what I need done. The rest of the site improvements such as text/flash/seo can be done within 10-30 days.
Require the freelancer to be located in the United States, prefer the San Francisco Bay Area, but its not a must :)
