    HELP NEEDED! I am in need of an experienced WordPress developer to assist me with creating my first WordPress site. I have a HTML/CSS site that I want to redo with WordPress. So, most of the site needs to look like a traditional HTML/CSS site and similar to the current HTML site, but the site will also have a blog. Naturally, the content is already available. Requirements: Have developed at least 3 commercial WordPress sites, that are currently online, with at least 2 of them having a traditional "look" rather than just a blog "look". The work will be mostly face-to-face, rather than remote.

    Pay: $20.00 per hour.

    Contact me for additional details. Thank you, Jim Holloman

      It's probably the same program - given by the same guy. I might go again!

    It was wonderful - very informative and any time someone had a question, it was answered in a friendly fashion. I wish I had the power point that was presented!

    IF one's WP site is a nonprofit, why would the site need SEO?

    February 22, 2013

    • Rich

      There is always room for improvement, and some of it is quite simple.

      Search Engine Marketing takes time, a plan, and someone to execute it well. A good SEO campaign should take *at least* 15 hours a month.
