I don't mind fighting competition for top placement. I expect it.
However, I'm sick and tired of fighting Google to stay on top! In the last 6 months, I've had several local sites fall to page 2 no matter what I do to push them up. In fact, I push them up to page 1 and a few days later, they've already fallen back down. I don't like it and my customers sure as heck don't like it.
It's even more frustrating that the keywords I'm targeting have extremely low competition to moderately low competition. In my mind, it should be easy to rank for the low competition keywords, but I'm not getting anywhere them to really speak of. When I do move them to page one, I've not been able to make them stick or find a way to keep them there.
The on-page SEO that I implement is solid. I have regular optimized posts going out. I even found a guy here on WF that has been an absolute Wizard at moving sites up in rank when I hit a brick wall. Now, even what he's doing isn't penetrating Google.
I've bought and implemented several WSOs on new SEO strategies and none of them work like the sales copy says they do.
I'm at a loss with SEO and not sure I have the 'umph' left in me to keep researching and looking for answers.:confused::confused::confused:
I'm really close to abandoning it all together and reverting back to mobile site building, SMS marketing, and website design.
I'd love to find a way to just outsource or resell someone elses SEO services without having to worry that the client will fall off page one or the top 3 every other day. :confused::confused::confused: Someone reputable with a proven track record would be a knight in shining armor for my business right now.
Anyone else feel this way?
