I am looking for an SEO for two websites that are in the real estate and finance industries. I mentioned "local" SEO in my title as my business is not online or even national at this time, I have a local metropolitan area that is the source of most of my business. I have had an SEO company for a while, and I wasn't overly happy with the results I had been getting, but then my websites got hacked, and the ranking has since gone down substantially and has not recovered in 5 months. I need an SEO provider who knows what they are doing to get me to top 3 search ranking positions in competitive search key phrases.
I am looking for competitive pricing, but the quality of work is critical. I want the strategies to be "white hat" only. Ideally, I would like high-quality links from reputable sources compared to low-quality links from many sources. If you can get legitimate online media coverage in my area, including links to my site, that would be ideal.
Please quote the term "blue chinchilla" in your proposal.
I would like the successful bidder also to handle social media, posting material that will help improve traffic, leads, and clients. My current SEO writes with English that is not great, and I have to review and correct their writing, and many times I cannot use what they wrote at all because it isn't even factually correct.
I do not want spammy things like inserting keywords into my website where they do not belong to generate internal links. I am open to discuss strategies that you believe would work.
The job would be relatively autonomous, as I do not want to be supervising activities. I will check the results and ask questions occasionally. I have given the current provider significant leash, and I realize that results do take time. I hope that I have a provider who can deliver and manage my websites for the long term and generate my businesses with reliable results.
