This would be done over a course of 6 months in order to keep organic SEO as is. After six weeks, work on fiften pages per month until all 90+ pages are optimized. This will allow for the SEO to be done over time as to not "alarm" Google and other search engines in thinking the site is spamming search engines.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a method of using specific techniques to optimize web sites for search engines. Part of this method is using your keywords (usually products / services) to help increase the visibility of your web site in organic (non-paid) search results. This in turn helps to bring more traffic to your web site.

While SEO helps to give a web site a solid foundation with increased ranking benefits in searches, there are no guarantees for high rankings. Google states: “No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google.” https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35291?hl=en
Google and other search engines give personalized search results that are contingent on the searcher’s past search history, if they are logged into the search engine, location, IP address, the device used and other factors. Therefore, different search results displayed could vary.
Post live site updates incur additional charges.
Theme customization limited to theme’s customization options. Any changes to the WordPress theme are limited to the functionality of what the theme provides in its customization section.

Policies & Statements
General Data Protection Regulation
GDPR is a new privacy protection policy which went into effect May 25, 2018. GDPR was enacted to protect Europeans online personal identifiable information (PII). Although Client may not have European clients, a European may visit Client’s web site and thereby have their PII collected thru the use of “cookies” on Client’s web site. If Client’s site utilizes Google Analytics, Google Ads, etc then Client’s web site is collecting PII. Fines for non-compliance can be extremely high.
Marketer highly recommends Client seek legal advise on what would be required for their web site for GDPR compliance.
Note: protecting site visitors’ privacy is something that should be taken seriously no matter where Client is located.
