I have paid 'experts' on Blimpon and Upwork to help with seo on my site. Despite that I still have these problems.
'page titles have either been poorly done or haven’t been done at all for SEO.
No on-page content on category pages and little content on the Home page.(totally confused here as another 'expert' told me to remove text on home page as people wouldn't read it)
No local directories been added.
No back links'.
I have no idea what to do and certainly don't have tons of cash to throw away - sorry feeling slightly burnt and disillusioned.
Sorry to hear that - it seems like that either:
your SEO 'pros' are not doing very good job
your SEO analysis tools [which is often the case] doesn't really know what they 'talk' about :)
If you need a quick SEO review of your website, feel free to give me a shout, I'd be happy to help.
