The Lario Team – Bob and Linda Lario are the Remax realtors in Western Colorado. They have a corporate site and also two niche real estate sites. Bob and Linda hired me to help with the two niche sites. I optimized them both as well and naturally as possible considering severe limitations of the CompleteSite CMS the sites are on. We were able to improve the organic rankings of these sites a bit but ended up building them two WordPress blogs. Since WordPress does not integrate with CompleteSite, we had to put them on subdomains and use some skill to get it to work, one for each site. The results so far… the posts on these blogs, coupled with a bit of social media stimulus have been getting top rankings for key search phrases! If you are interested in buying a home, land, orchard, farm or vineyard in Western Colorado I highly recommend visiting their Websites at: Paonia Real Estate and also Western Colorado Ranch. Bob and Linda are superior realtors with true expertise and a high work ethic. You’ll be glad that you met them while you luxuriate in your new home!

Huge success, gaining page one positions in Google, Yahoo and MSN for about 300 targeted and competitive industry phrases!

Too bad they got swindled after I did my work and now they are paying money to someone else (an insider) to “maintain the positions” that I got for them. What a joke and a scam. And most unfortunate for SAS as they are not enjoying my ongoing expertise, preferring to throw away money to an insider freind who claims to be an “SEO expert;” but we know better.

“Do it yourself” Internet Marketing help for the frugal with lots of time:
If you have hundreds of hours or more… or at least more time than money, and would like to learn this business for yourself, let me help you get started by sending you to the best forums I’ve found: www.searchengineworld.com and here: www.webmasterworld.com and here: www.searchenginewatch.com and here: www.seochat.com
Although I do not have time any more to hang out in forums, if I did, these are four of my favorite free resources and they represent a pretty good place to start. They will not show you Mr. Web Guru’s special sauce, but if you read their hundreds of links and articles then you could gradually learn enough search engine optimization to probably get your Web site positioned higher than a lot of your competition… Unless, that is, your competition is one of Mr. Web Guru’s clients!
