WTF SEO is changing with the possibility of the addition of an SEO Directory. One thing that bugs me; SEO companies who make it look like they are based in a town or city to gain clients from the other side of the country.
If like me, you live in a small town, then it is OK to attack your nearest city; hence me originally going for the term SEO Portsmouth. However, as I no longer take on clients, I am now linking from the Portsmouth page to someone once a competitor.
When creating this link, I thought that if I were to develop an SEO directory, I could do two things. Help small businesses who offer SEO and help people searching for SEO’s find someone based on their proximity.
How will the WTF SEO Directory Work?
OK, there will be a small annual fee to get into and stay in the directory. This fee starts from under £1 a week and may increase depending upon the size of the town/city. For instance, Manchester is more populated than, let’s say, Gosport. I’m sure you get my drift.
ONLY ONE SEO COMPANY PER TOWN or CITY!
If someone wants to become a member of the directory, they will have to pay a non-refundable £10 admin fee; a link to a form that will take their details will then be sent. Bear in mind that you are expected to write some unique content about your business and the area covered at this point. You will also need to fill in your details should any potential client wish to contact you.
Should you pass my checks, i.e. you are based within proximity to the place you wish to take, I will add you to the SEO directory upon payment of the annual fee. The fee will start at under £1 a week for mid-sized towns such as Gosport or Fareham. I need to add that I will also check your website to make sure you are not subcontracting out your SEO work.
PLEASE NOTE: ANY LINK FROM WTF SEO WILL BE A NOFOLLOW LINK!
A couple of things you should consider first.
- Some people are put off by the name of the website WTF SEO, which may mean you might not gain clients from being part of this directory. The fee is just that; a cost to be included and not a guarantee of leads.
- Should I receive some complaints about the work you carry out and upon me checking, I feel you are not doing something right; then I reserve the right to remove you from this SEO directory without a refund. I know that sounds harsh, BUT it is essential for me only to include those who can do the job properly. If you can do it correctly, you will have no fear of removal. Also, it will not be a straight pull; I would let you know what is wrong and see if, between us, we can work it out to keep you alive within the directory.
