    I am an SEO dynamic expert with a penchant for copywriting and conversion optimization. My goal is to help you craft a search engine friendly website. My process starts with on-page optimization, then follows with aggressive off page marketing.

    If you want a way to get more clients to your business I can help you. Please take a moment to look at what I have to offer; My service is focused at local business owners to help them attract more customers. If you don’t have website I will create a Wordpress based website for you – details of how I create each site are below. If you already have a website and would like it to be ranked to attract more clients, I can also help you. I first have to diagnose it and determine its SEO health and make recommendations. I specialize in SEO for local businesses targeting local customers. My services include; • Website Design • Google Places and Local SEO • Social Media Integration • General SEO including; Link Building SEO, On-page, Off-page SEO, etc Services I offer are tailored to your individual needs. I do not have a one-size-fits-all type of service or price. I look at what you need and look at factors like if you already have a website, how many pages does it have, do you have video, images etc or you are basically starting from scratch. And we discuss the way forward and agree on a price. I think that is fair enough! My service is 5–fold, but each can be a stand-alone depending on your needs; 1. Consultation Service • Diagnosing the SEO health of your website if you already have one. • Website re-structuring and other elements it may need or need to improve on. • A tentative keyword research to see how best to gain more traffic. Please note that this is a back-and-forth consultation, I don’t use a program to analyze your site, I human review it and communicate with you back-and-forth. I will give you helpful suggestions that you can implement straight away whether you decide to engage me further or not. 2. Create Or Reconfigure A Website If you have a website already, I might need to tweak it and configure it to the standard that I trust will be loved by the search engines. You might have a big site or small site, so that’s why I don’t have a standard price for you. Here is what you get with this service, a website that • is simpler and easier to navigate • has a better look, feel and is user friendly. • loads at optimal speed better user experience and search engine love. • does not require technical knowledge to manage or update your content. • is secure from spammers and fly-by-night hackers or malicious bots. • is SEO friendly and liked by search engines for better rankings And here is what is unique about the websites that I create and an advantage to you I will; • provide customized keyword research based on your business niche and location. • create a highly local search optimized website by including crucial elements e.g. verified Google Authorship, KML File, Local Schema i.e. Schema-formatted business information like name, address and phone number, Review Schema i.e., etc, and all the goodies that Google loves to see on a website • use a combination of text, image, video and audio with strategic placement of tags (H1, H2, H3, meta, etc) •GEO-tag each landing page to enhance location top rankings - each (landing) page/post is treated as your marketing piece! • create and submit XML sitemaps to Google Webmaster tools (XML Sitemaps include Post, Pages, Images, Video, Full geo sitemap) • insert Google analytics code to track performance, traffic and all the analytical needed for future tweaking of the site to perform at its peak! • create legal pages that search engines look for to take your website serious and worthy of being indexed. There is more… The above is standard coming with 5 to 10 pages depending on the type of your business. 3. Local SEO After website creation or reconfiguration I set to optimize it for local SEO. This step requires several processes like; • Creating social media accounts for content syndication and social buzz • Use of schema formatting in citation and reviews. Schema-formatted reviews give you the stars in the search engine results! • Creating review profiles in 3rd party business sites and link to them to improve your score to rank better and get more clients. • Integration of social media like Facebook, Foursquare, Google+ (to get your photo show up in search results), LinkedIn, Twitter, etc 4. Global SEO After Local SEO I will then work on the normal external SEO! This is a link-building process with a twist! This where I perform processes that can help you rank for national or global keywords. To be clear local SEO is also external SEO but it can be viewed as a special type of external SEO. And by traditional SEO I mean the normal SEO like link-building i.e. article submission, press releases, etc. 5. Website Maintenance I will perform month-to-month monitoring and maintenance of your website.
