What I need to get for a number of my websites are:
a. Update these sites on a regular basis, look for content for each of the niches, write articles or spin articles, do continuous back linking and SEO work as well do article submission. I want someone who is a self starter and has enough experience to take sites like these that get 50 to 100 unique visitors to 10X or 20X times the traffic with time.
Important: I am looking for someone who can use tools like at their disposal. I am especially looking for someone who has licenses for SENukeX or similar powerful tools that can help provide a good strategy and fast backlinking.
I am also looking for someone who is active in doing keyword research and suggesting ways to rank the sites higher with high traffic keywords.
The proof is in the results. I need more targeted traffic to my sites.
b. Finding or writing relevant and targeted content or spinning them, RSS Feeds, finding deals to specific niches from the web and posting them. This is an important task. A lot of my websites already have good content but I need to keep adding more and more content. The content should be either original or close to original (spun content is fine but it should be copyscape/dupecop passed).
I prefer someone who can write or spin keyword rich content based on the current and new researched keywords.
It does not matter to me if the content creation part is outsourced to someone else or not.
I also like the provider to know how to make the content more attractive (by finding right images, tags etc.)
c. The person selected must be great at providing weekly reports as far as what was done. Metric information about trfaffic, revenue must be provided.
d. Promote the content on hubpages, squidoo, forums, social bookmarking etc. Again, having SENukeX or similar tools will help a lot.
The bottom line is I want to take my sites (most of them are monetized through adsense and increase my earnings to a higher level). If I see a growth in traffic (and revenues), I have no problems diverting a major amount of that revenue to increase the number of hours and rate of the VA.
I don't have time for maintaining these sites and doing the above tasks - I have been doing these for the past several months but am not busy with other projects.
