Hi there.

So I just felt like writing out on what I have done so far and what I want to achieve more out of my site. I have already written some of the necessary posts and 4 reviews. Right now, I am working on on-site optimization and ensuring that all of my posts have the right keywords, meta tags, etc with the help of Yoast SEO, google search console, etc.

Once I am done with that, I will continue creating unique content(blog posts) with low competition keywords relating to the current trending topics in hopes of attracting more traffic.

But at the same time, I have to focus on off-site optimization as well. Now this is the part where I struggle. I know what off-site optimization is but I personally think it is a little bit harder as compared to on-site. How do I go about with off-site optimization?

I was researching on off-site optimization and came across SEO fiverr gigs that claims that they will get your page to number 1 rank in the SERPS. I have contacted most of them but I still doubt it. I dont know, I am kind of lost and need help with off site optimization.

Is it necessary? Which one should I focus on?

I'd stay clear of Fiverr. I only use them for logos - you're either great at designing stuff or not; you can't bluff this skill.

I commissioned a single post to be written and it came back with errors, spelling mistakes, grammatical errors etc and when I queried paragraphs that seem to contradict one another they would just delete the paragraph and return my gig saying they had made the necessary changes.
Not only that, they were asking me to give them extra money because they had done a good job!!

Focus on WA and the training here. You can't go wrong.

Hi Jackie! Thanks for your input. I decided to try out content writers from Fiverr for fun just now so I am eager to see what kind of quality work they can give me.

I speak English on a daily basis but everytime I publish an article or a blog posts I get insecure about my english writing skills. I tried my best and hope the visitors can see that.

Give them extra money? What a shameless thing to do! LOL.

He was actually begging. I thought this was beyond a joke.

Even when I was saying I wasn't satisfied with the work he'd done, he kept on insisting that he did a good job and delivered on time.

Sadly, Fiverr isn't vetted so anyone can join regardless of experience.
Upwork is better but can be a bit pricey.

All the best.

At least someone agrees that an eye 4 design is a talent that has been cultivated for many years subconsciously.

Some guy in chat. I was saying that some people can't design. When I was doing sitefeedback. So many sites that asked for review of their content didn't have good site design. It looked like something made in the 90s. Their focus was on their content and not where their problem was.

They can write good articles so they should just spend their money on a web designer and be done with it but I got flamed.

ahh yeah that's true. I've encountered plenty of websites that looks like of your typical cookie cutter design or scammy looking type of sites. I guess some people just can't accept criticism? :/

I tried this plugin called CSS hero it seems good. Can give it a try after watching their video see if it suits you. It works on every element on the page which is why I like it. Normally I have to go into the CSS file and add code but with this plugin with just a few click it can be done. It's also lightweight. Now I just wanna try elementor. Mayb u can try and get back to me? It's supposed to be free. I don't have a site running atm. Some member here recommended me to Amazon FBA. So I'm so weighing my options right now... I'll most likely try Amazon fba then come back to affiliate marketing. I think affiliate marketing is like being a magazine. Just be an editor and hire and fire people. You don't even have to worry about advertiser because ad network do all the sourcing for you. But I'm only one man. I can't do both and I only can join Amazon bootcamp in Malaysia now! No one else is offering.

Don't do the fiverr gigs. It's basically blackhat marketing. If u get caught by Google ur site will be banished to the ends of the internet world. Just create great content and share it on relevant sites. Do Guest posts. Reach out and network with other ppl in your niche.

These are people who know all about blackhat marketing...

Please anyone chime in and tell her not to do it.

Don't worry, I won't do it. It seems too good to be true anyway. I just don't get how the top rated sellers on fiverrs can get away with doing blackhat SEO. They sound really convincing at first but I have done my due diligence to go and research and found out that there were complaints.

They sell their services everywhere and in many legit forums too. Fiverr just lets them do what they want. As Long as there is demand for it. A lot of people do blackhat marketing and Seo but it will not be good for your site in the Long term. If I was selling a scammy product and I know it won't last I wouldn't mind giving those services a shot. Blackhat is all about quick money and then you no longer get any money once the loophole is closed. White hat is for growing your business and building a valuable asset. It won't be easy but it's more worth it in the Long run. When you finally have a strong authority you can rank for just about anything in your niche and that is just so powerful.
