Hi Rapid Hotclean
Yeah I can appreciate what you're saying but the bed and breakfast was an example of a quick and easy wordpress website.
If you took a look at the other site Goto Gas Docs you will see that this one is top in the uk for probably half a dozen popular search terms and had 190,000 visitors in the last 18 months so I know a little about seo
in large geographical areas.
If it's not your bag and you have the money then yes, it's quicker to pay someone no doubt. If money's a little tight and you are just starting up Wordpress is an easy start, you can add free plugins like Wordpress SEO
where you can place your search terms and areas of work.
If in a large city, the London guys generally pick the specific areas they are closer to and London as secondary.
But, as I said it's just another avenue you can take, SEO
is not always easy as everyone wants to be top so if you have the money then employ an SEO
guy on a monthly retainer.
