    SEO practitioners who offer backlinking are out to take your money and nothing else. Backlinking is just one very small part of SEO.

    Just concentrate on your business and let the Google ranking take care of itself. SEO is an overpriced and ultimately false economy. The fact is there is not one person who can say they have a top three Google ranking with the promised SEO practitioner who claims this.

    Lesson 1 : If an SEO company say they can achieve a top 3 Google ranking ask them for previous clients who are top 3. I can assure you the conversation will terminate pretty soon.

    Exactly!

    For a moment I was doing freelance seo for a company.
    Customer requirements were infeasible.

    - I want to be on the front page of Google with the word "electronics"
    (It happened once for 5 with a keyword much simpler))
    - I want 5000 visitors per day.
    (For an online store, I brought only 700 visitors 1 time, my average was 300 for the others, but he worked hard their sites).
    I prefer doing SEO for free to gain people's trust. Rather than charging a result I do not guaranteed.



    Seo is 90% on the site.

    I would only ever pay a SEO company for optimization if THEY were optimized on "search engine optimization" on google. If they can get themselves up there on that, I would be pretty confident that they could get me ranked for mine :) If they cant even optimize themselves then why should I expect they could optimize my site!!???

    I dont even know if its optimized or optimised ...........

    Have you seen?

    Your meta description does not own you quotes
    <meta name = "description" content = "<meta content="" />
    It is doubled
    Your meta keyword is not mentioned is empty
    <meta name = "Empty" content =

    It's a reflex, sorry if I meddle with what does not concern me

    Don't worry.
    I have a very poor English to understand me and google translate does not help me.

    Tracy, I have found several virtually unknown shopping carts that are not mentioned here, since they have a cost of $300 or so. I am in the position where I need a good, working demo and would be willing to supply one to you at no cost.

    The one I am thinking of has it's own built in forum, an affiliate program if you would consider that, a complete CMS module, an Articles section where you can do reviews, etc., a complete helpdesk / support ticket section and much more.

    Each item has it's own Page Title, META Description and META Keywords fields, it has retail and registered wholesaler pricing and much more.

    It will not be set up in a day, I can tell you that, but it sounds like just what you need to cover everything with one domain/package. These are not add-ons or mods, they come out of the box with this script.

    If you get a domain, I'll install and host it for you at no cost, in order to use it as a showplace to refer others to.
