Pay someone to do it. Google keeps changing stuff and unless that is your business, you will always be behind the curve. People who do it for a living keep up with the latest and greatest of Google so why reinvent the wheel. You are a carpet cleaner.... click your heals together and repeat it three times.

If you can't afford it then do nothing! You might end up doing more harm than good - leave you sight alone till you can.
OR - learn
SEO
PPC
Become a CPA so you do your own taxes
etc - etc - etc.
Of course - then you customers could learn to clean their own carpets and you would not need any of the above! Get what I'm sayin?

Use the search function...

You can either spend a ton of money and hire a true SEO professional or learn to do it yourself...

Money or time.

I was in the same situation as you a little over a year ago but I found someone that could work with my budget and I couldn't be happier. I am finally getting a decent amount of jobs coming from Google search and my reviews are sealing the deal. :)

Business Marketplace. Talk to Deb or Don Watson at Business Marketplace, 336-237-1293 for Don and 413-281-3476 for Deb Watson. Very good company. They can build your site and do the SEO. Expensive? Yep. Worth it? Yep!

I think the biggest thing to understand about SEO is the overall objective that search engines are trying to measure to when creating their algorithms for ranking

Relevancy and popularity

For example if you created a webpage today on a topic and in a 24 hour period thousands of people searched and went to it then that page would instantly rank for the keywords people searched and found you with. Technically with no "SEO"

So yes there are techniques to SEO a site and somewhat trick the search engines nothing can substitute relevant quality traffic to your site.

So if you want to do your own SEO that's the best place to start. Social media, business listings directories, Adwords, any online marketing you purchase and print advertising. Drive quality traffic to your site and it's the best way to build a sound foundation to your sites SEO and ranking results.

Then of course there's on page optimization

Site titles
Headings
Image tags

Etc etc

Google it

I forgot to mention blogging above, both on your site and on relevant sites linking back to relevant pages

Hire someone! My guy is around 600 to 800 for a site and seo is around 300 ish a month. I think he even does a payment plan... So worth it!

I would say it depends on the population size and if the population is continuous in 1 town or spread out over several. Plus do you have an address in the target area?

Google is moving away from link counting and more towards looking at the number of visitors and how long they stay. So going forward its important to include lots of information on your pages/blogs that visitors stay and read it. Articles/videos/pictures etc.
No junk! Better to have 1 good page then 10 junk.

Overall my opinion is to definitely hire someone to build a wordpress site and set you up. Then do it yourself for 6 months and see how it goes.
Might get lucky.

For a 1 town of 100k or less think you can be successful, for miami, dallas etc or trying to cover a dozen towns, forget it.
Too hard for a DIY

OK guys and gals - just re-read this thread. If I ran a special for $300 a month for SEO would there be any interest? Only caveat is that your on page MUST be good - if not I would have to charge to fix it.Keep in mind - if your on page sucks your site won't rank well regardless. Might be more for major cities - like "carpet cleaning Los Angeles". Cities like this "might" rank but might need more work and cost more if the $300 package doesn't work.
Why so cheap? Because I have a soft spot for carpet cleaners - you guys need SEO and have low budgets - I'm in a good mood (for now) - I love this board. Don't know how many I could do for this but I will put it out there for now!
