Hi,

I have a client who has a website designed by someone-else.
It consists of one swf embedded in one html. Within the swf there are:

10 sections on a menu.

Within the first section there 250 words with some pictures.

In the other 9 sections there are about 120 words.

If the client has only 625 US$ (400UK pounds) to spend would you think this would be a good package to offer them:

Do a keyword analysis on Wordtracker

analyze competitors sites to see where they have there incoming links going to.

Do a link popularity campaign get them in relevant local directories.

Take the content from the 10 page flash website and create an optimised 10 page html site (so that the user can choose between flash and html at the index page) with crafted, title tags, meta descriptions, meta descriptions, and adjust the body text and text layout if necessary.

Use the free submission route to get the site in the major search engines. Does it matter whether this is done in webposition gold or by hand?

resubmit after 6 months.

Put in a quality sitemetering thing in.
[sitemeter.com...]

Submit them to the open directory.

Does this seem reasonable or too little/too much for this money? I'm in the UK.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld

You are going to struggle with swf. The text and links are mostly invisible to the search engines, or they choose not to bother.

Do a keyword analysis on Wordtracker

Only really useful if you are going put those words on your site in a readable format or do a PPC campaign.

analyze competitors sites to see where they have there incoming links going to

Good start, but that will cost you nothing if you do it yourself. You can then try and get some of those inbounds yourself.

Do a link popularity campaign get them in relevant local directories.

Good idea here, and again quite easy all you will need to spend is your time, but make sure you follow the guidelines for inclusion into the directories. Make it as easy as possible for the editor and you will stand a better chance of actually getting listed.

Take the content from the 10 page flash website

This is the one to do. Chances are you will find that people will choose the html site over the flash. There is nothing to say that an html site cant be a flashy as the flash site so to speak. You will certainly get more mileage out of text. Look through Bretts successful site in 12 months post:
[webmasterworld.com...]

The ODP idea fits in with your directory listing.

Forget using web position gold etc. They can harm your site if you over use them. You will find that automated queries of search engines are against their terms of service. You have it right in my opinion, do it by hand. Again all it costs you is time.

Does this seem reasonable or too little/too much for this money

Well that depends. If you avoid all the costs that you will incur from third party stuff that you might buy and spend a little time here you will only be spending your time. I cannot answer how much your time costs or how quickly toy can get to grips with the details.

Hope that helps a little

Cheers

400 is not alot of money for what you are talking off, and opto-ing on that budget, would be a labour of love, rather than any cost/benefit ROI thing going on.

If it is a commercial site, that you are being contracted to do, up the money - realistically to around 2K, for an entry level site/seo package. If 400 is all they are prepared to pay, get the money, build the site, and do all the free-bie submits, and forget about it.
