i have many questions as my knowledge is super limited on magento but i mostly want to know who to hire to be able to certain things on my site. for example i am under the impression that SEO for magento is different from other platforms, is that true? whom can i consult with that knows magento SEO and not just SEO in general, i want actual results
also need to find someone to do certain changes for me or help with some general errors i have like orders not showing up in grid (seems to be a common problem), someone to install extensions for me if needed, i wanna receive order notifications now but i was told perhaps my email client setup with magento is not working properly, ...
is there like community recommendations here of people who do work with magento 2 i can consult with, just seems like there are an abundance of developers for magento whom varry in costs so much i dont' know where to start
