I just started my own business recently in Southeast Texas. I am primarily building/designing websites in Joomla for clients, and trying my best to offer decent on page optimization (I'll slowly work my way to doing more for clients). The biggest reason I moved out here is because i thought it would be easy to rank for local keywords. Well I'm having fits trying to rank well.
- My page rank is 0
- I have absolutely ZERO rankings in google for ANY keywords
- Yahoo and Bing I'm starting to climb
- I'm trying to manually go out and get good backlinks, but I'm starting to feel I'm not getting anywhere
- Lately I've said "screw it" and signed up for PPC to help the growing process... (I've actually landed a couple of clients this way)
I use a SEOmoz pro account to track any rankings and errors
I feel my on page SEO is done correctly

SO Frustrating! I've gotten several clients fantastic traffic and rankings, but I can't seem to get them for myself...
Can anyone offer any help? I want to stay completely white hat if possible. I'm not looking for immediate rankings - I don't mind putting in the work slowly and correctly.
