Anyone have a good reference for an inexpensive SEO company? I'm looking to promote my office furniture business and thought maybe a few of us could network and help each other!

Hi! I see you posted this about a month ago, but I just saw it now. You might have found something in the meantime, but if not - I work for an SEO company. I don't know if we're inexpensive (I don't handle the pricing), but we do offer a lot of different options, including personalized SEO training so that you can learn how to do the SEO on your website (and then don't have to hire an agency month after month).

If you want to know more, you can check out our website - www.debi-z.com (http://www.debi-z.com) and we also have on the site some SEO guides (http://www.debi-z.com/seo-articles/) and an SEO mini-tutorials blog (http://www.debi-z.com/blog/), which might help you figure out how to do some things by yourself. We're also starting an women's internet marketing twitter chat in the next week or so - I'll post it on the appropriate forum board here when I have all the details, but you can also contact me if you want to be kept up to date.

Best of luck!

I do my own SEO and I have a blog with the thesis theme which has SEO built in.

I agree with BloggyMommy. Why not learn to do it yourself? I know that I always put off learning anything about SEO because it seemed like too much work to learn all there is to know. Until recently. A few weeks ago I put a blog, with a fairly competitive keyword phrase, "Creative Writing for the Internet" online and using keywords and keyword specific content found it at the top of page two in about two weeks, actually about ten days.

There certainly is more to SEO than keywords and content but I would bet that it makes up the most of what it takes to get to the top of the search engines like Google, Yahoo or Bing. Given some time and good coaching and mentoring, which you could probably find here in the forum, I'm sure you could do what I have done and more.

I third the idea of learning SEO yourself. I do my own and wouldn't trust anyone with it. It takes lots of reading and always keeping on top of seo trends, but it is so worth it.

I have to agree with the others on learning it yourself. But to do it all yourself could be a bit much. If you have a WordPress site, get the "All-in-One SEO" plugin. Make sure you keyword fill the Title of the post, the post tags, the three fields for the All-in-One SEO and that will take care of your on-site SEO. For a static site, you can learn the tags by visiting this page: 1-2-3's of Internet Marketing - How to Optimize Web Pages for Better Ratings (http://www.123marketing.com/search_engine-page_char.shtml) (it is my own site and it's free information).

Then I'd recommend going to outsource the backlinking part which can be time consuming by using Odesk: http://bit.ly/oiWG15 That's an inexpensive way to start building your site's SEO using experts without having to pay nearly thousands of dollars a month.

Hope this helps!
