The places to obtain free SEO advice are plentiful. There are forums, blogs, articles, ebooks, webinars, and even live internet radio shows such as WebmasterRadio.fm. However most often the advice given is more of a general nature involving specific techniques or strategies that can be applied to a multitude of sites. If advice is given about a specific site, such as in a forum, it is most often generalized so it can help all who visit the forum as opposed to just the site owner themselves.
What if you were able to receive free SEO advice from a handful of industry experts related to your specific site that is not generic in nature but specifically designed to help improve your search engine visibility? Well now you can with Search Engine Journal’s SEO Clinic. SEO Clinic is a new project they offering for webmasters and site owners who are not happy with their Google, Yahoo, Ask.com and MSN rankings and want to see improvement. What’s the catch? No catch really except that only one lucky participant will be selected each week. I would also imagine that their findings will be posted online so that others could benefit as well.
SEO Clinic is described as being a free service in which the staff at SEJ will provide their recommendations that include ideas and tips on link building, site navigation, usability, copywriting, social media optimization and other techniques which help web sites rank higher for desired terms in search engines.
The experts who will be dealing with your site, if chose, are Loren Baker, Carsten Cumbrowski, Jessica Bowman, Garrett French, Ahmed Bilal, Rhea Drysdale, Gemme van Hasselt and they claim that special guests will be brought in from time to time.
To participate in Search Engine Journal’s free SEO Clinic, simply contact them with your site information and SEO needs. If your site is chosen for this project, they will contact you immediately.
So, an opportunity to get free SEO advice custom tailored to your site. This could pan out to be a pretty good deal for those who are chosen as services such as this typically range in the thousands of dollars. Good luck to all those who apply. Just like the “Pimp My Site” sessions at Search Engine Strategies conferences, it will be interesting to see who is selected and what processes are taken to improve the site’s search visibility.
