Search Engine Optimization/ SEO
Most frequent questions and answers
SEO is abbreviated for search engine optimization. It is a process of research and analysis tailored towards refining your websites ability to rank higher in search engine results. The process of proper SEO includes many facets that allow the technician to come up with a custom strategy that is designed around analytics, competitor research, and performance based optimizations. SEO helps get your website better search visibility organically.
SEO is a long game type of strategy. Any SEO agency that guarantees fast results is probably using ‘black hat methods’ that will eventually get your website penalized and will be discovered eventually. True sustainable SEO takes time to implement and to see results. Timelines are a factor best calculated by the current benchmark your website is positioned at, as well as how competitive the keywords are that you are targeting. Much of SEO involves on-going optimizations and A-B testing to get the correct results. However, in very low competition spaces and with the right domain authority in place, SEO can show quick results.
The process of SEO makes sure that every factor is in line and your website is performing in top shape. Businesses compete online for customers through search engine results placement. Most of the time the business that wins the 1st place result or at least shows up in the top 10 results for a target keyword, gets the customer. If you can effectively target the correct keywords in your SEO campaign and win those top positions, you can get more customers to your business if you have a good conversion strategy in place. SEO makes this happen along with SEO based web design principles.
Much like getting your business more customers through SEO lead generation strategies, it can also help you to develop better brand awareness as well. Targeting brand related keywords or industry related topics and positioning yourself as an authority with SEO optimized content is one way to accomplish this. Content that ranks well and gets traffic is a great way to show off your brand as a authority in your space and helps foster trust and familiarity with your target customers.
The old saying: “If it is too good to be true then…”
Any respectable SEO company cannot hope to perform full fledged SEO services for pennies on the dollar. The tools required to do SEO can cost thousands of dollars each month. More than likely, companies, many of which based in foreign third world countries, offer SEO services for cheap and perform low quality basic optimizations that do not get results. However, be warned that many operate using black hat techniques that can seem to get results quickly but may not last more than a few days. By the time you have paid them, you soon realize that the results are not only gone, but now your website is also penalized and your brand’s reputation is tarnished online! Stay clear from link farms, black hat techniques, fast results and false promises and you should be safe. Similarly watch out for companies that over charge for their services yet provide little value.
Monthly campaigns are different than one-time SEO service deliverables. When you signup for a monthly campaign each month the optimizations from the previous month will be reviewed and adjustments will be made to improve the results of the campaign. This is accomplished by continually auditing and optimizing, including split testing, ongoing competitor and keyword research and SEO optimized content creation strategies. Campaign factors such as link building, social signals, press releases or similar off page techniques will be pursued if it is in line with your monthly package. Basic, Standard or Top level.

However, SEO has one great advantage that none of the other marketing styles have: Organic targeted placement. For local and national businesses models this can be probably one of the best routes. Once you obtain a ranking you can;’t guarentee that you will just remain there for all time. SEO is ongoing and needs to be continued to in order to hold your positions. However, when you turn off the Facebook, Google or YouTube Ads everything just stops cold. SEO needs to be maintained, however, in many cases unless a competitor really wants to come in and go after that keyword, you may remain ranking highly without maintenance. It depends on the competitiveness of your space and industry. Many people trust organic listings over listings displayed in the Ads section, and many people find social media ads to be intrusive and annoying. When a customer searches for something they are interested in and finds your business, you have a high chance of conversion. SEO can provide your company with long lasting results that produce organic natural conversions.

Real SEO is data based. ‘Guess’eo is based on guessing and hoping something will work. People who don’t know how to do proper SEO end up doing a lot of guessing. They don’t collect the right data, they don’t know how to organize the data, and therefore they have nothing but hunches to go off of when making decisions about what to optimize and why it needs to be optimized. Real SEO pulls data in a systemized structured manner as outlined in an agency’s standard operating procedures, and is organized in a certain way to be analyzed. That data is used to make decisions based on real world factors regarding what needs to be optimized and how it will need to be optimized. SEO is not a one off type of thing. It requires more data to be gathered and further optimizations to be made afterward. This is how real SEO results are achieved and anyone who says differently is either trying to sell fake services or doing Guesseo.
Optimized websites are lightning fast and have every single on-page SEO factor on par. They are compliant to Google guidelines and SEO best practices. They do not use any ‘black hat fly by night’ methods. Overall they are very efficient, effective and well looked after sites that are built to perform well in search engines. SEO optimized websites are designed to drive and convert web traffic into customers.
