Well, the client has decided that he can't afford SEO at this time, but has found someone that will do the offsite SEO for free. He wants me to go and do the onsite optimization for him. I don't think this is right.
I don't think he understands that onsite is part of the SEO process. I've already told him that I will be more than happy to give his free SEO-er the log in information to the site. But he keeps asking, is there anyway you can just insert the meta keywords?
How would you respond without pushing your client away? He may return and do SEO with me at a later time.
On a side note this is the same client that has already asked me to hook him up, if there's anyway you can cut me a deal, blah blah blah.
