Hello SitePoint Members,
I come to you with open arms.
I have a website that I foolishly messed up.
In 2011 I hired some various SEO’s and now I am paying the price.
I had links from every country, forum signatures left and right, and ads all around.
Now I sit lonely and unfound in Google.
Many people may come here and get rude and act like its someone else’s fault, where I am to blame for being stupid.
I have learned my lesson, but I am looking for some honest, and friendly help please.
All criticism is accepted, and appreciated. I understand even a few “I told you so’s” along the way.
My issue is my site is my families business. Without exposure, I do not work.
My site is allspecialtybuildings(dot)com
I have done a Disavow to remove the bad spammy links that I could not get removed without $$$ as many places wanted $20 per link removal.
I am in the process of editing my code to remove meta tags, and other things.
I got a price of $700 to do a wordpress site all seo ready and turn key, but I have no idea who to trust anymore.
So my question is:
Is wordpress decent enough for a site that does not get updated often? I have no problem learning what I do not know how to do, if in the long run will be better.
How do you find a good seo? Ones I have talked to said they can get me on Google again for $500 per month, because of adwords.
Can a Google algorithm be overcome? Like if I clean my act up, one day I may see the light again? Or bury the site and start fresh? My domain name is important, but if it cannot be recovered, then I have to let the ship go down.
I know for some of you this is an everyday post. Someone messed something up, someone did whatever. But I assure you I am an honest man who loves his family and life. I am looking to find a hand to help me dig out of this mess to continue to put food on my table for my son.
I made a mistake. But I am looking for advice on how to get found again on Google and get that needed exposure.
Thank you so much and Have a Blessed Day
