I have been wanting to do a post about this for a few months now, but have not had the time to do so. Lately the problem seems to be getting worse with more unwanted “spam” solicitations about Search Engine Optimization and Cheap Web Design. Personally, I find it amusing being a web designer myself that I am being targeted constantly with endless emails about how to improve my Google Rankings or how to get a Cheap “Professional” Website for under $500.
Common sense should tell you that these emails are spam and that if you fall into their trap, you will get what you pay for. Nothing worth doing right is going to be cheap. The less you pay, the more it will cost you in the end. Yes, you heard me right. These “scams” will cost you more in the end.
Most SEO companies that either charge a monthly rate or tell you that it is a long process to get you improved Google Rankings really don’t know what they are doing. Some companies will sign your website up to countless “Junk Directories” that will link back to you website and potentially hurt your rankings or worse yet, do nothing at all to improve them.
If you really want to improve your Search Engine Rankings with Google or any other major search engine there is no “easy” way to do it other than to provide relevant content to the end user. The better your content is, the better you will rank. That being said, there are some “white hat” legitimate tricks of the trade that can give you a hand up in the SEO game, but these “SEO Companies” don’t benefit from using them because they rely on repeat business and monthly charges.
While I can never guarantee top ten results to my clients, I can honestly say that 99% of my clients rank on the first page for their desired key searches. How do I do it? Easy, I stay on top of Google’s algorithm changes and deliver content accordingly. I research competitive sites that rank where my clients want to be found and make recommendations that will help them reach their goals.
My rates are reasonable and the results undeniable. Interested? Contact me today.
