OVERALL OPTIMIZATION OF AN ENTIRE
WEB SITE: YOUR INVESTMENT
I have wrestled with how to price my service. First there is the degree of difficulty... it is much harder to get a top ranking for a word like "internet" versus a phrase like "the best web page optimizing service on the internet." And, as with most services, there are two main components: the expertise and the labor. My expertise has been honed over our past four years on the Internet; owning over 100 web sites myself; searching and searching and searching web sites; paid subscriptions to search engine optimization publications; participation in discussion groups; and designing and monitoring both my and client web pages. I have created a step by step process that allows me to analyze and recommend highly specific suggestions for each specific web site.
So, your investment in your web site... depends. I need to know your site URL, your keywords, analyze the competition, ascertain the degree of difficulty and then send you a price... Sorry, one size does not fit all... but isn't your site worth it? :)
