I'm looking for a NATIVE ENGLISH speaking SEO expert to manage the SEO on a handful of websites for me.
I only want someone who has English as their first language and can write/speak it fluently. If you do not fit this criteria, please do not waste either of our times by applying.
Also, if you don't have prior success ranking websites for competitive keywords, please do not apply. I will ask for proof of your previous sites and keywords you have been able to rank.
There are too many "SEO experts" these days that don't know a thing about how to truly do SEO, and as someone who knows the field myself, I will be able to tell if you know what you're doing or not by your application.
I just don't have the time to manage it myself, which is why I'm looking to bring someone on board to take over for me.
I'm looking to hire a top-notch guy/girl and have no problem paying extra for it.
There are 2 separate approaches we will be taking here:
1. I build some really basic niche affiliate sites and go more for the "churn and burn" approach where we get them ranked quickly with more aggressive linkbuilding tactics. These are low competition keywords, and if they get penalized say 6 months down the road, that's fine because they have a short life anyway.
2. I also have some high quality, authority websites where I'm going for more competitive keywords. For these sites, it's important to keep everything as clean as possible, at least for the first tiers of links. I don't mind if you get a little more aggressive on the deeper tiers to power up tier 1-2.
For the authority sites, a big part I would like you to be able to focus on is guest blogging and outreach on real sites. Aside from the standard outreach strategy, another thing I would like you to do is reverse engineer my competition using Majestic or Ahrefs to see where they are getting links from, and contacting those same sites to see if they will link to me as well.
Overall, a big focus needs to be on high quality, contextual links.
So as you can see, I would like someone who wears all sorts of hats so to speak. Someone who knows how to aggressively rank a site quickly for a churn and burn approach, and also someone who can keep things clean for my authority sites that I need to stick around for the long term.
If you're interested, please send me your application and include some of your previous work (sites and keywords you have been able to rank for) along with why you feel you would be a good fit.
Also, I would prefer to pay a fixed monthly cost instead of by the hour, so give me a general idea of what you would charge per month.
