Frequently Asked Questions
How do you optimize a website?
I will find your optimal search terms by performing extensive and wide-ranging research. Then I will define your target keywords (words and phrases users enter in their search engines), based on the number of searches per day, your target market, and the competition from other websites like yours for specific terms and phrases. Finally, the code in your website is then optimized to get you primary placement for those keywords and phrases.
How long does Search Engine Optimization take?
Google and other search engines regularly scour the web looking for new content. After optimizing your website for SEO, I notify all of the major search engines individually. From there, it really depends on how quickly they update their information. It can take as little as two weeks to start seeing results; after six to eight weeks, the results can be truly dramatic.
Do you have to optimize a website more than once?
Sometimes. It’s important to remember two things: 1) your competition will continue to compete against you for the top positions and 2) search engines are continually changing the way they determine results. What works today, won’t necessarily work tomorrow. Monitoring your site for SEO is an integral part of website maintenance.
How can I verify my Search Engine Optimization results?
Highly detailed SEO reports are provided that show your starting (baseline) rank, and your current rank plus a great deal of additional information. Reports are provided monthly, or at your request.
What about “Guaranteed #1 Search Engine Ranking?”
Be wary of anyone that claims search engine ranking “secrets” or overnight results. There is no such thing as guaranteed ranking. Many of these firms use “Black Hat” SEO.
What is “Black Hat” SEO?
Black hat SEO attempts to improve rankings in ways that are disapproved of by the search engines, or involve deception. Search engines may penalize sites they discover using black hat methods, either by reducing their rankings or eliminating their listings from their databases altogether.
What do YOU guarantee?
My personal guarantee is that you will achieve at least one top 15 ranking for a given search phrase. Most of my clients do much better. If your website does not achieve a top spot, I will continue until it does at no additional charge.
Can you show some examples of your Search Engine Optimization results?
That’s a very good question that you should always ask. Search Engine Optimization results can change frequently however. What appears on the first page this week, may not appear at all the next week. That’s why I take 6 months to monitor your website SEO. If you would like to see some current results, please contact me.
