First - I don't care how good your SEO firm is or what keywords you have ranked nationally - I don't care if you've ranked for Diet Pills globally or Insurance. I ONLY care about your local expertise. I am looking for specialists who are familiar with the changes in local over time and have a very particular focus in local listing optimization on Bing, Yahoo, and ESPECIALLY Google.
Looking for someone so confident in their past ranking experiences and proof that they can guarantee me A spot rankings. This job is for a test for 1 client. If you are successful there will be a full time opportunity available.
A slot guarantee - you should be a master of Google Local Places
Understand the most minute details of listing optimization and be willing to
Do battle with the fiercest SEO companies on the web and already have a proven track record of winning those battles.
Capability to setup Yahoo and Bing local profiles as part of a holistic local optimization plan as well as executing
on page tasks that will add to client profile, citation listing, GPS listings, simple video creation, geo tagging, etc.
You should be willing to share your sources and knowledge to help us grow our organization of 23 people presently.
Clients will fill out a detailed questionnaire in order to assist in optimizing listings
This is more of a partnership than a contract for hire - the selected candidate will have ongoing work on a weekly basis and our business is not going anywhere anytime soon. You can expect 20-80 hours a week. Initially we will expect your team to handle the work but we'd like to have our team trained in execution as well.
On page Geo Meta Tags to Niche Specific Citations To Local Reviews with Local IPs
Video and Pictures With Optimized title, description, and alt tags where applicable
Competition analysis and understandable reporting
First we need to pull competitive reports from local competitors that can be white labeled
These reports will help us navigate the optimization process outside the normal range of solid optimization strategies
including but not limited to the tasks you will find below in the *resources section
Some clients already have local listings that need to be optimized others will need to have them setup correctly to win A slot in their city
Regular reports of performance - you should be able to pull these manually but may use tools to create more visually appealing reports
Your capacity should be in the dozens of listings per month or you should have a team that can grow with us. We are already taking over the industry in SEO - you should seek to be part of something long term and expect 20-40 hours of work per week - this may include training our team on your tactics.
That means you must want to work as a team and have decent English skills (although our team is in India - so skype communication is fine)
You need to have proven results and I expect to see them before hiring anyone.
