    Good morning to all,

    I'm launching a Website very soon and have had some disappointing experiences with professional SEO people.

    First of all, 90% don't answer their phone and the other treat my little site like it's beneath them.

    So, I've decided to learn what I can on my own.

    Can anyone point me to some reliable/up to date resources on the topic? E.g., books, websites, reasonably priced professionals that actually answer their phone?

    I have done some Keyword research and do plan on adding Google Analytics to the site but I think much of what I find out there as far as free resources go, is out of date.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance you could offer.

    I dont know what a Professional SEO would do but According to me Paying for SEO is a waste . Just Google it and there are many resources teaching how to do it.

    Basics are 1) Metadata above each page. 2) First H1 tag should represent the whole page data. 3) More keywords in the following text.

    Thanks, Challa,

    I'll do some homework on these terms.


    Can anyone recommend a source to turn to with some up to date info on the subject for the novice?

    Thanks!

    Paid people might have good knowledge and some tricks, but what they do is same as what you can do. Only difference is, they take money :D

    I'm certainly getting that impression from the arrogant pricks I've been talking with on the phone.

    They think they're all big shots.

    But there are so many resources on the net that I really don't know which one to trust.

    Yes they are. I heard some of they simply charge number of dollars JUST FOR TALKING, and even without giving advice.
