I started the store shown in my signature in March 2010 and after more than a year I still haven't been able to break big.
I get about 30 visits/day on average which is not enough for a real business.
I've gotten about 20 sales so far.
I've been paying $250/month for professional SEO services for the last 8 months and even though I'm ranking better than before for most of the keywords related to my niche I still get 30 visits/day.
From what I've read I need keywords in the first 3 positions since being in 4th+ positions doesn't have much impact. Currently I'm ranking 3, 4 and 5 for 6 of the keywords I'm going after. For all my other keywords I rank lower than that.
I wanted to get your advice on what you think needs to be worked on.
Is it simply a matter of doing more SEO work or is there anything else that stands out as being incorrect or missing?
I have a Facebook page, Twitter feed and a Blog as well.
I really want this to work and am willing to pay someone for SEO services since I'm not dealing with the SEO team I was working with recently.
Would paying someone for 20 EDU + GOV links make a big difference?
I found this service being offered on the "Warriors for Hire" forum channel and was wondering if it's recommended to pay someone a fixed price to do a one time job or is it better to pay someone monthly to do a continuous backlinking campaign for a seemingly more genuine process in the eyes of Google.
The point is that I want to build something solid that will last and not just something temporary and mostly I don't want to get kicked out by Google for doing something that looks like spam.
Thanks for your advice.
I'me starting to get lost in the maze of Internet marketing :confused:
Not sure what to try next to make this work.
Thanks for any comments and advice.
