I have a small scale blog and ebook shopping site. Its built in Joomla, the shopping cart is Virtuemart.
I would like SEO done on the site to ensure:
a) The site is validated in important search engines and is crawlable
b) The site is added to maximum possible free search engines & directories (I would prefer a list of the ones you will cover upfront)
c) The urls of all the pages (except home) currently are not user friendly. Currently they appear as url//index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=2&Itemid=12. This makes it difficult to search, remember and is not very user friendly. They should appear and be searchable as url/blog or url/shop for example. The website has dynamic content, and I would like you to build in rules so that new blog entries, new shopping pages etc, get automatically titled in a user friendly way. If you can’t automate it, teach me what to do each time I add a product/post etc.
d) All steps typically done in internal SEO. I would prefer it if you list what you will do in your bid/PMB, so that I may evaluate bidders appropriately.
Am looking for somebody from alternate time zones, I work during the day and would only be able to update my website, write content etc, on the weekends, or late at night/early morning.
This assignment will probably lead to an ongoing SEO assignment aimed at page ranking.
I look forward to your bids and to working with one of you.
