Would you like to know how well your current site is optimized? Do you need to learn the basics of SEO? I offer site evaluations, one-on-one SEO consultation, group SEO classes and SEO seminars.
Original Optimized Copy
Need a shiny new about page? Some snappy product descriptions? A bio? A resume? A how-to-article? A press release?
Would you like seamlessly integrated search engine optimization with that order?
I can assess your current SEO situation, ascertain your mission and your target demographic, research the keywords you need, and write a smoothly crafted, fully optimized piece that attracts traffic from the major search engines and keeps your new visitors interested once they arrive.
I specialize in creating search engine optimized copy that delivers improved search rankings without compromising your vision or your voice.
I can edit existing text to include important keywords related to your content, and make minor changes in your site code (like optimizing link text, image alt text and file names) to enhance your search rankings without making major content changes.
Search Engine Optimization Rates
My rates vary depending on the nature of the project, so please contact me for a detailed estimate. I offer discounts to family-owned small businesses and to non-profit and charitable organizations. I also, under special circumstances, accept barter of goods or services in exchange for SEO.
