Complete Website Managemet - Is there such a thing?
I currently own several ad-sense earning websites and am looking for a management service to maintain them.
I have limited time but want to maintain their current earnings.
I need a service that does the entire job, SEO, content updates etc etc.
Does such a thing exist?
I can't seem to find anything. Maybe i am just looking in the wrong place.
Also as a side question, does any one have any thoughts on issues that could arise around this kind of service, ie security and privacy issues, insuring Google ad-sense terms and conditions compliance etc
Thanks in advance!
Here's the tricky part of outsourcing this kind of work. A lot of companies claim to be SEO experts and will do things to potentially boost your rank and end up either penalizing your site or jeorpardizing your AdSense account.
Before you hire someone to do SEO, always educate yourself on the basics. That will prevent you from getting burned by someone who is just trying to take your money. Here are some things you should know.
1) SEO has changed a lot so a lot of the backlinking practices and on-page tactics that used to improve a site's rank no longer works as well
2) SEO is also now being driven more by AuthorRank. This is your individual profile across the web that is built up by content you write and how much it gets shared. It starts with you creating a Google Plus profile. From there you tag all your content to your name.
3) There are companies out there that will manually build backlinks and they actually may work, but buying links is against Google's guidelines so it may work temporarily but you'll always wonder how long before you get caught.
To answer your question, you can hire people on Elance, oDesk and all kinds of sites, but that's why it's important to really understand SEO or you could get suckered into buying a service that is worthless or even worse... get your AdSense account disabled.
So that's why I wanted you to understand a lot more about what's going on with SEO before you go and hire someone. I personally prefer to do my own but of course it's up to you. And stay away from any service that makes any guarantees like "#1 rank in 10 days" or even those that guarantee any rank in this era of SEO.
I think what you need is a firm that has a firm knowledge on how general online marketing works. If you have enough budget, you may contact Top Rank Online Marketing (I am not affiliated with it. It's just that this company is really good when it comes to contents and online marketing). You can search them in Google if you are interested.
