A Portsmouth based SEO Consultant; I helped clients achieve their goals by acting as an SEO coach and not just an SEO Consultant. Small fixes will be free, though I no longer offer a regular service from just £30 a month. I have stopped being an SEO! I have also stopped offering a Web Design service.
Ask yourself this: “Is using SEO Consultancy Services expensive?” WTF SEO is run by an SEO Consultant who finds ways to get you noticed for less than you might think!
However am I any good? Well, in the past, the chances were that you found me by searching for SEO Portsmouth or some other search related term and based in this area of Hampshire. SEO is changing all the time, and the only way I can prove I am any good is by being high for my local search terms.
The philosophy of WTF SEO is to work mainly as an SEO Coach to empower you with knowledge and to help you attract website visitors thereby ultimately new business for as little as is possible; often for no fee whatsoever. What better way, is there to gain a return on investment?
Having worked in the SEO industry for many years, WTF is more than just an SEO Consultant. During this time I have learned what not to do! Perhaps more important than knowing how to gain rankings within Google’s Hummingbird Algorithm.
SEO Rates (Fees)
I was working on a scheme where I would only charge £30 a month for clients wishing to retain me. The fee covered admin fees, reports, simple Q&A’s and small pieces of work.
As I am retired and your website requires regular or a little more hands-on work, then I will not charge a fee of just £99.99pcm. Depending on your niche and your catchment area, this fee will not eventually drop to my retaining fee of just £30 per calendar month. See I don’t do this anymore!
For small agencies and one-person bands, I did think about offering a service where I will look after the local SEO side of things for your clients for just £99.99pw; payable monthly in advance. Companies with more than five clients will be charged extra for each additional customer.
More details can be found on the page covering SEO Rates.
Why WTF SEO?
The world of SEO is full of SEO Consultants & Companies who are good at what they do!
HOWEVER; for every one person who is good at SEO; hundreds use poor SEO techniques to try and gain quick results that may hurt their clients in the future.
What is WTF SEO?
This website was going to be a blog about poor SEO; then I decided to turn it into a test website; then a business website that attacked related search terms and now…? WTF SEO now has two main purposes; firstly for me acting as an SEO Consultant. Secondly, a place where I can help others by highlighting their mistakes and show examples of poor SEO that is being carried out by companies who should know better.
No SEO Job is too Small
I firmly believe that no job is too small and will act as an SEO Expert for almost anyone who needs help. That is as long as their websites are not too risqué. However, I have now changed my pricing structure…well I no longer have one.
I Also want to Help the Small Guy With Local SEO
Although I have had success with large companies attacking primary search terms; I am looking to help the small guy who wants; or instead needs to rank high within their town or city. By working with localised search terms, I can keep my price to a minimum; in fact to nothing; except expenses and perhaps a donation!
Consultancy Catchment Area
Dare I say the whole country? Well in this day and age you need to be flexible however my preferred catchment area is in and around Hampshire; Berkshire; London; Surrey & West Sussex. I have placed Hampshire before Berkshire as I live there and not because I don’t know my alphabet.
I will initially be seeking clients who want SEO in Portsmouth. This may well be followed by attracting people in Havant and Waterlooville; then perhaps my own town of Petersfield. Other towns and cities could include Aldershot; Chichester; Fareham; Gosport; Guildford; London; Southampton & Woking.
An SEO Expert in Various Niches
I have much experience within search; though not necessarily an expert in all of them (except regarding SEO); here are a few diverse niches I have worked in:
One area I excel in is travel SEO; in the past, I have created two separate websites that have reached the top 5 for cheap cruises; a third is currently on its way. I once even overtook Royal Caribbean in the UK for the term Royal Caribbean; I sold the website soon afterwards.
Once asked to supply leads to a network of mobility scooter agents, I created a website that ranked in the top three in 468 towns in the UK; over 350 of them were number one positions! Again I sold the website to the client, and it has never been the same since!
One former client was number one in Google for five years for Moroccan tiles after I had spent just three hours working on his website. In the last year or so they have dropped due to a website redesign; I suggested a fix to them, and once again they are back on page one.
I was once asked to teach a group of ladies who offered Tantric massage to clients on how to optimise their website; now they are saving over £600 a month (or a couple of clients) by not needing an SEO consultant to do their optimisation. They were number one for various London based terms and asked me to return to them as they were so impressed with me! I am one of only a handful of men who walked out of a knocking shop with more money than went in!
For years I have had to clean up websites built by others; now I have decided that I should offer a web design service. As with the WTF SEO service; this will be cheap; hate that word; affordable to any small business or person alike.
The best thing about the web design service is; an SEO builds the websites with design skills rather than a web designer with little; none or outdated SEO skills.
The WTF SEO Consultancy has now started work on a series of cruise ship related websites; these are for use by a client in the travel industry to help them, or rather try to help them gain leads.
Made some changes to the title tag for WTF SEO and it has caused a small drop in the search engines; this only goes to show how easy it is to mess up search results when you are just messing around! However, I do now tend to use this website to help me understand what will work for you. The drop in rankings for WTF SEO is now corrected…
Contacting WTF for Consulting Purposes
You can now contact WTF SEO for consulting purposes; or any other reason via the contact page; so if you would like to discuss anything associated with the consultancy; go ahead and fill it in. The niches mentioned above are a sample of what I have worked in; saying that SEO is nigh on the same for all niches so I am confident that whatever it is you do; I can help.
