i have been reading and researching and pretty much have a basic idea of what i want to offer my clients locally.
Most of my target market has little to no presence online and keyword searches don't show them in the results.
I want to be able to offer them a website/mobile website plus high ranking on google, page one.
I have a good idea of what SEO is but not really how to apply it, i can deal with the meta info and site content and that should help rank it but how do i rank them well with the keywords i need?
Do i have to pay for blog reviews, backlinks and such?
Can't one legitimately work the site to first page result without tricks in a non-competitive area?
