    No, I haven't seen this from another thread. My comment wasn't meant to be "snotty" either - you're question was a bit vague, "Gert, How long have you been going?". I wasn't too sure what you meant by that, so the best assumtion I could make was that you we meant; how long have I been doing SEO for and if you've been in the SEO game or know anything about it, you would know that saying "I've been doing SEO for X years" means absolutely nothing.

    I've been working with a few people that claim they are SEO's, and some of them have even been doing it for over 10 years, but yet they don't know much, they can do the basics but when it comes to large corporate sites, they have no clue where to start. The guy that introduced me to SEO and taught me about 10% of what I know right now, has been doing SEO for over 8 years, but today he's techniques and skills are so outdated it's not even funny.

    So to come back to why it might have sounded "snotty", I didn't want to say "I've been doing it for 4 years" (which is the true amount of time) as that statement means absolutely nothing so I thought a better answer would be; long enough to know what works. Hope that makes sense

    Oh and about the work you want done, I don't do "odd jobs", but I'll gladly refer you to a couple of guys that's doing some great work at the moment, it all depends what you're looking for. Are you targetting local, national or international audiences? Product or services? Niche etc?

    Gert - do you not ever consider that when you are asked how long you have been doing something - people are trying to gather some info because they might not want to use someone that has been doing it for 2 months !! We are a medium size company with LOTS of "IT" work to be done. As you may know or perhaps don't know there is a shortage of IT people. There are lots of people who say that can do IT, but they can't - hence my question.

    Oh any by the way I wasn't looking for someone to do "odd" jobs. You seem to be totally on the wrong path here .... perhaps it is the Cape Town thing.

    Did you not perhaps at all think that your signature might just get someone interested ....... or now not interested in this case ?

    You are just around the corner from us ...... therefore my interest.

    Ah, I see, I hope you didn't gather that I've been doing SEO for 2 months based on my initial comment on this thread.

    Also, I doubt I'm around the corner from you. If you're refering to the location of the company in my signature, I do not work at their office, a friend of mine owns the agency and I help them out as much as I can They do solid work and cater for small to medium SME's.

    I totally agree with the lack of IT related skills in SA, especially in Cape Town... Walking into businesses and having to work with their "IT" team that barely knows MS Office is quite worrying...

    Do you you own www.2hrs.co.za? If you do, you can start by building some solid citations. Your current link profile is pretty much non-existant, with a link to domain ration of 12:2.

    Just checked the SERPS and there's close to no competition for "recruitment specialist" keywords, there's a site on the 1st page with a DA of 8... Get the basics right and you should be able to dominate Very low hanging fruit

    The website is used for our candidates to upload their cv's ....... not to advertise our company, ..... but Im sure you figured that out.

    If you are getting visitors and they are not buying, then you have to re-check the page and make it more attractive.
