Best time to STOP SEO



A seo specialist has been working on my site for the last 6 months. He has managed to get my site indexed on google and to get it on top 10 positions for a handful of keywords and phrases.
As the summer season is quickly approaching and my business will be a bit dry during those times, I was thinking about stopping the SEO work so as to cut down some of my expenses. However to prepare for the next christmas season, I would restart the SEO work beginning from July/August 09.

Thus, I would like to know from some SEO experts here about how pausing the SEO work for a while would affect my site/business. In other words, when is the best time to stop SEO work

What is the best way to link multiple websites of one's own?

I have been running eight websites and eight blogs for some time. They are related and similar in content, but they are not linked to each other, because I fear Google might give them some kind of penalty for search engine spams. So the visitors need to find the other websites and blogs of mine on their own if they are interested. But I am beginning to think that I might be better off if I linked them to each other. 1) So, if that is the case, would you put links to each of these websites and blogs on the top page of each of them 2) Or would you link these sites so as not to link to each other directly like: Site 1 > Site 2 > Site 3 > Site 4 > Site 5...etc. Then, Site 3 > Site 1 plus Site 5, and so on. 3) Or would you link them only where context requires links to them For example, if a page at Site 1 is about traffic problems, then you put a link to a page about government traffic policy at Site 2. These websites and blogs of mine are non-commercial websites, and they are on free web space. So I do not put adds like Google AdSense banners on them, if this sort of information is relevant. So, what would be the best way to link these websites and blogs Thank you.

Which of these domains has the best SEO?

Which of these domains, have more or less SEO (if any) than the others: http://hockey . e x a m p l e . com http://www . e x a m p l e . com/hockey http://www . e x a m p l e . com/hockey.html Even if one has a fraction, of a fraction, if a fraction more weight/pr can you please let me know which is the best, and if possible, why. PS Disregard the spaces in the domain examples, and sorry if i'm breaking forum rules using a domain - I don't know any other way to post this question. , Judging from my wordpress blog structure in which my tags and categories (set up: http://www.my domain.com/category) get the highest SERP placements. I guess, the less unwanted words (like html) in the url, the better. But, like djstreet says, focus on inbound links more.

Pages vs. Categories with Podcasts..what is best for SEO? (I tried Search first)

Hi all! I have been working very hard on my site, although I am still very much a rookie. It's about parenting advice with humour & fun. My problem is the following: 1) I have read that static pages are better than use categories for SEO. If this is true, then why don't most people do that Almost every popular blog out there uses Categories From what I've seen anyhow. My site would certainly look better if I stuck to pages only. Currently I have been using a page widget that order pages into "parent" and "child". As my site and content grows, will this still be suitable 2) My articles/posts are focused on relevant and profitable keywords. They took a long time to write well and would certainly constitute "static". I won't be changing them frequently. How should they be structured Just simple slugs that match the keyword 3) My bread and butter will really be podcasts. However, the show notes from the podcasts will often be centered around the same keywords, although not identical content of-course. How would I best place these show notes on my site Could I use the Category widget and organize them that way What would be most effective from an SEO standpoint I am very grateful for any help! Thank you!! Jayce

What is best for SEO? blog or articles?

, I send a weekly email and now have lots of good content that I would like to put on my site. From an SEO point of view would I be best putting them into a blog or creating a page for each article Thank you , being equal, then, i'd recommend the blog as people have said, you can set it up pretty easily and post easily, have RSS feeds etc. The marketing trend now seems to lean towards blogs, too. Probably in part due to the ease of maintaining and the familiarity and consistency to users.

Gettgin best SEO

I'm new to this and this is my first post, I know very little about SEO and use Freeway Pro on a mac to start building sites Just started to build first site using Freeway Pro, just starting to build now but worried about doing it all and it isnt good way for SEO which is of major importance. My concerns are the way i want my site constructed is a showcase entry page displaying one photo, my name and a strap line, this would appear for a few seconds, then open to the home page. As there are various, but quite distinct and different services I offer, the homepage would consist of various buttons with brief descriptions of each category that when clicked upon would take you off to more detailed and relevant information and galleries, in effect, each service/category button would almost be a seperate capsule website in its own rights. This is where my main concern lies, will the Search engines be put off or not navigate or rank highly each service that might be Googled because it had an entry page and home page with very brief information of relevance to get past before the right detail was found. Am I OK to construct how I plan or should I make each service a seperate website and link them all for the best SEO Any info would be most welcome!

Several Sites in the same niche. What's best way to link them?

I have built several sites over the past couple of years that are more or less related to the same niche. The pagerank for each one are low, with a pagerank 2 being the highest on one of them, but I'm still able to rank okay on the Search engines. But that's probably because the competition isn't too tough for the niche. My question is how should I go about linking them to achieve the best SEO Do I * Have all the websites link to each other just on the homepage. * Have all the websites link together on every page. * Build a hub, with all the websites pointing to just one site which links back out to them. (hub and spoke model) Any advice or suggestions is highly welcomed.

How to best add a blog in this situation.

I'm thinking of adding a "latest news" section to our real estate site. The problem that I have though is that the site we use is a templated site and I am limited on some things that I can do. I can change title and meta tags and I can add any html or content to any page. However, if I add a blog, the style is totally different than my site and it is listed as a subdomain of our site. So, is it best for me to set up a wordpress blog and then iframe it into my site Or, perhaps I could do a blog and scrape the content and put it on my real estate site Or, I could simply write a page with each month's news items...but then it won't be optimized as well as if I do a page for each news item as in a blog. Any ideas , Oh believe me, I have greatly considered this. However, more than 50% of our sales come from conversions from this website. The reason we get the conversions is because of the "handshake system" that they have. We have handshakes with 160 other agents in the city who use the same templated site. So, all of their listings appear on our site and vice versa. In our area, our MLS board does not allow IDX or scraping of any sort. So, to scrap the site would mean to scrap our biggest source of leads.
