My client had discussed in depth SEO. It was put off, however. Recently though, a Google search of the site revealed rich snippets. This is not from work that I have done for the site. I had began to work on this for his site, but it was put off and never made it into the deployments.

How could the site possibly have rich snippets. If it is not from me, where could it be coming from?

    You're going to have to provide more information than this. What rich snippet is being displayed? – John Conde Jun 28 '14 at 22:52
  • Sorry if I was vague. Business and Organization Snippets. Just 2 columns and 3 rows of links. I've not used this snippet before, so I'm not so familiar with the exact terms here. It's definitely reminiscent of a e-commerce site's SEO. – Chelsea Gottshall Jun 28 '14 at 23:13

    Your client figured out how to implement it themselves, or hired somebody else to do it in the meantime? – Stephen Ostermiller Jun 28 '14 at 23:52

    It happens sometimes that such "discussions" result in them feeling that they have gathered enough information to pass it to some internal guy to make SEO changes. To avoid this, have a contract ready from the beginning to charge for even basic consultations even before most of the work has started or was agreed upon. – phoops Jun 29 '14 at 2:15

    @Fiasco Labs makes a valid point. SEO is difficult enough. But knowing the industry is also an important factor that has to be overcome. For SEOs it can pay to know certain industries extremely well and know specifically how to help them. Sometimes, you have to be a member of the club, so to speak, to really understand it. – closetnoc Jun 29 '14 at 19:14
