Do I Want to Offer SEO in Portsmouth?
After much deliberation, I have decided I might not offer a Portsmouth SEO service. All I seem to do is spend my time fixing issues created by other supposed SEO companies. If they’ve messed up your site up, get them to fix it for you for free!
I am backing off from terms like SEO Portsmouth, as I may be using a new company to attract clients. It’s called SEO Designed. SEO Designed is vastly different from WTF SEO. It is more about SEO Designed web hosting than SEO itself.
Please take no notice of what I have written on the rest of this page. I was having a bad day, and after all, how did you get here? By searching for someone to do your search engine optimisation? Well, that’s me, or maybe not! So please don’t go ahead and start talking via the contact page.
Can I Attack SEO Portsmouth?
Here’s a thought. Can I attack the term SEO Portsmouth? How about SEO Consultant Portsmouth? I work just 18 miles away from the second-largest city in the county of Hampshire, Portsmouth. It is the closest city to my town of Petersfield. So do I have the right to go for the term to gain clients?
Well, everyone else is doing it, and Petersfield is so small compared to the other towns and cities in Hampshire. As I see it, I have a right to try and create a client base in my local city. Portsmouth is the second largest of these in Hampshire, Southampton being the largest. Whoops, I already said that! Anyhow, I was thinking of offering my services for just £X a month; that is less than £x a day! That is assuming I do, do it.
I don’t charge for the first look at your website. However, if it needs regular work to get its ranking, I will demand an upfront fee of £x followed by a monthly price of £x. From this point, I will reduce any expenses payable down to the £x per month mark. However, this retainer is dependent upon the catchment area and the service you offer.
When researching for this page, I saw one Farnham based company who was trying to con Google by saying that they were actually in Portsmouth. Yet, they didn’t even mention it on their website. They had the A slot on Google maps; how unethical is that?
At least I am not trying to con people into thinking that my office is in Portsmouth.
I am not the only SEO Expert in Portsmouth
WTF SEO is looking to work with local businesses in the Portsmouth area and throughout Hampshire. In saying that, I am not limiting myself to just local businesses; I will also work with SME’s, large corporations & other types of companies.
I want to add that I am not the only SEO expert in Portsmouth, and you should not just choose a company that offers SEO services just because they are top for the search term. I suggest you do a little more research first, and then if you think I am probably the person for the job, get back to me. Good luck in your quest.
Jobs for a SEO Consultant/Expert in Portsmouth
I will say that I am in two minds about whether I want clients, acting as an SEO Consultant or a job for a Portsmouth SEO Service. Clients can sometimes be a pain, and I would be free to get rankings where I do the work, and someone else liaises with them.
Does that sound awful? Yep, I think it does. However, I have gained rankings for many companies, and a handful has given me this outlook. One turned over £500,000 from my work and refused to pay me because he felt I had not put in enough work. When I pulled the plug, I had, and he dropped some 50 places in a month, and his sales dropped 60%. I was charging him £90 a month which is cheap for an SEO Expert. I now refuse to do any more work for him, even with his begging forgiveness.
It is people like that that have given me this lack of enthusiasm for doing SEO in Portsmouth. In saying that, I am only acting as an SEO Consultant rather than offering a full search engine optimisation service.

Updates for SEO in Portsmouth
It looks like I haven't added any content via dead blogging just yet. Please come back later!
These snippets came from a Live Blogging Test.
This is from a previous test!
Not having done live blogging for a while, I thought I would try it again as a test on this page. I can do this as I am no longer seeking clients and can mess WTF SEO up as much as I like. The most recent items are at the bottom!
1) I have also changed the live blogging plugin to see if it will post 250 characters. That should allow for a full live blog entry and the link back to the page.
2) Great news; I am no longer page one for SEO Portsmouth! No more people are calling for help. I can finally retire from SEO and move on!
3) I just realised that I didn’t complete the move of this website over to a new server. I do hope it is not that causing the drop in ranking. If it was, I hope this doesn’t fix it. I want it to drop because of what I have done and by my mistake!
4) Why have I started to move up again for SEO Portsmouth? I have retired Google; well, OK; now washing up for a living. Guess that means I’m still messing around in murky waters!
5) Silly me is considering a return to SEO! Silly me!
