Though a programmer I have an offer to see how much I can contribute to the SEO for this Enterprise company. I know they have a good range of products, and even know the solid reputation (Ist hand) of the financial software platform quite well.
I got the offer because I kept my own business on the first page of Google for 3 years.
I know enough to understand why I stayed on the front page, and realize that my niche was a walkover by comparison to this. I have already spotted a few common mistakes in their SEO, but have little idea of what they may need off page in this industry. Should I try? or is it all too hard? Thanks. Ern.
I've been doing a bit of off line seo work for some local companies and I can tell you that it is a whole lot easier than doing seo for national and international companies. Google loves local, the more local the better and they rank a whole lot quicker with less backlinking.
Go take a look at the number of backlinks their top competitors have in Yahoo site explorer, and compare that to the number that they already have. That will give you a pretty good idea of the magnitude of the job you are signing up to do.
If you have an doubt about your abilities of doing SEO then don't try it. Some SEO efforts can go wrong and the results can be opposite. That might hurt your repute as a programmer too. I know this because my SEO efforts have gone opposite on a site.
Im so happy to hear this for you, sure came searching for a well deserved hubber. Have to say no one came learned from the womb my mom used to say that. You will learn your way around in SEO's changing market. Best of luck and never stop believing in yourself.
I think this is a risk assessment - How comfortable are you with the risk in doing well vs. the perception of not doing well. It sounds like something you are capable of so the only question is - What will the outcome be if you do not do well? I say go for it.
We know you will.... Go hard on that.. you will create synergy & then 2 becomes 4, 4 - 8, 8 - 16 etc. You know what they say.. Don't spend your principal, make it work for you. So by the time you get to 16.. it would be smart to sub the work on a 60/40 split while you still have a sole on ya slippers
Could you do me a favour at some time Earnest & tell me what you think (as an Anzac) about this http://hubpages.com/t/b7bb9 I just want some feed back from your side of the ditch before I do the second?? Would really appreciate it mate... Cheers
Congratulations on whatever you decide . At least you are getting employment offers off the web, and all I get are e romance solicitations, scam lotteries, and people from China asking me to buy jewelry.
