Optimize my website and get Google/Bing on board
Hello SEO Clerks,
I like the look and feel of my website, but it isn't doing what it needs to do. I need it to be optimized with two major objectives: find me more writing jobs and bring more people to my site who like to read entertainment, lifestyle, health and food stories. I want it to be appealing to editors or publications. I want it connected to Google analytics. It used to be, but isn't now and I don't know why. I want real followers, ideally from the USA. I will come up with any additional content, but I'd like some guidance as what content will be most helpful.
This project can be done a little at a time. I'd rather it be done well than rushed. The person or team who takes this on needs to know a bit about writing or pop culture. I want someone who explains things clearly and isn't condescending. I'd like a generalist who can advise me on how to make my website as good as it can possibly be.
Note: I like my website. I do not want a completely new set up, though I am open to suggestions. I want to make what I have better, not start from scratch.
My budget is limited, but this can be an ongoing arrangement and I am loyal. I return to people I like and respect often.
