I'm looking for a person with existing experience of *local* search optimization, in other words ranking company websites who target local customers.
Please only respond to this ad if have experience of this. I'm not looking for a general SEO expert.
You should have knowledge of:
* Local Search Engine Optimisation
* Google Places
* Yelp and other Business Finder websites
* Finding local business directories
* Creating citations
* Multiple Offsite SEO techniques
* Panda / Penguin friendly SEO
* Local keyword research
* Using Wordpress
You should be an experienced and reliable assistant, who can speak and communicate well in English.
All the websites I build are in Wordpress so you should also have a basic understanding of how to use Wordpress and improve page optimization in Wordpress.
My clients are currently in England and Canada, so if you already have experience of ranking local websites in these countries then that will certainly work in your favour, but is by no means essential.
The job will be for at least one month full-time and if you prove to be reliable and trustworthy then I will probably provide more work.
How to apply
Please respond with a cover letter that includes the following:
1. Write at least one paragraph with a brief summary of how you would increase the Google rankings of a LOCAL business website using citations and other techniques.
2. Tell me about any other skills and experience you have related to web design and internet marketing
Skills: marketing, design, english, research
