FAQ

What is SEO & why do I need SEO for my website?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the active practice of fine-tuning your website to make it more accessible to both search engines and visitors so that it will naturally attract more web traffic. In other words, SEO helps you to make your website both search engine and search engine user friendly so that they can find you more easily.

SEO has always been a highly effective internet marketing strategy for increasing web traffic from major commercial search engines like Google, Yahoo!, and Bing. If you cannot secure top ranking on the major search engines for selected search terms and key phrases, you lose an incredible opportunity to reach the targeted visitors who want what you have to offer them.

Our decade-long experience has shown that improving the volume or quality of traffic to a website or web page can change fortunes for an organization. Targeted visitors to a website can provide publicity, revenue, and exposure like no other form of search engine marketing.

If you want to improve your sales and increase your market exposure, hire a professional SEO to enhance your website.

What is White Hat SEO & Black Hat SEO?

SEO can help your site rank better in search engines in a number of ways. Some of these methods are legitimate and sustainable techniques that search engines recommend as part of good design. These are called "White Hat SEO". Others are restricted techniques that search engines do not approve and even try to scrub from its search results. These care called "Black Hat SEO".

An SEO tactic, technique, or method is considered white hat if it conforms to search engines' guidelines and involves no deception. White hats tend to produce results that last a long time.

Meanwhile, black hat SEO attempts involve deception or unapproved methods. Black hats fully expect their sites to be banned once the search engines discover what they are doing. Search engines may penalize sites they discover using black hat methods, by either reducing their rankings or eliminating their listings from their databases altogether.

Today's search engine spiders can easily spot the difference between white hat and black hat SEO efforts. Therefore, it is best to optimize your site with white hat SEO techniques to increase your search results and avoid penalties.

What is On-page and Off-page SEO?

Generally speaking, two different yet interdependent optimization strategies—on-page and off-page SEO—can help improve volume and quality of traffic. Both are crucial ranking factors that need proper attention to secure top ranking for your website.

On-page SEO generally involves methods required to be done on the pages to maximize performance on the web. Common on-page optimization strategies include Keyword Research & Selection, Page Specific Title tag development, Content Based Optimized Meta tag creation, Content Development, and SEO Copywriting.

Meanwhile, off-page optimization includes customized solutions done off the website pages. Off-page optimization includes PR writing and submission, article writing and submission, directory submission, and search engine submission.

Why does my Website rank low in the search engines?

Before we answer this question, ask yourself: Does your site deserve to rank well?
Don't be surprised when you find that it doesn't.

If you want better rankings, you must make your site worthy of those rankings. Don't we naturally pick things that are easier for us to choose? Search engines are no different. Make your site search engine friendly and search engine user friendly and the rankings will follow.

There may be many reasons why a site stays low in the rankings, and the long, complicated, secret set of formulas that a search engine uses to rank your site can identify various issues. The major constraints for a better ranking of your website may be absence of fast-loading, content-rich pages or the lack of inbound quality links to your pages from other sites, especially from pages similar in content—or anything in between.

Before you initiate optimization of your website, get your site analyzed by experienced SEO professionals.

Can I do everything myself or should I hire an SEO Specialist?

Certainly you can learn to do some aspects of SEO yourself, but if you want to focus on growing your business, it might be wise to delegate the job of SEO to a professional firm that has extensive experience and will competently handle the internet marketing side of your business strategy.

Before you decide on whether you should do it yourself or hire an SEO specialist, understand the pros and cons of both approaches.

Do-it-Yourself SEO:

Doing your own SEO may save you a lot of money while allowing you to completely control your website and its content. It may also help you to plan on your own what you feel best for your online image. However, this approach also requires a tremendous amount of time—time you may otherwise save for your business matters. In addition, search engines are continually changing their parameters; keeping track of these changes might be difficult for a layman.

Hiring an SEO Company:

By hiring a good SEO specialist, you will gain one very important victory: the targeted customers currently way beyond your reach—and you won't need to bother running after them. By leaving your internet marketing to an SEO specialist, you win customers while you are free to focus exclusively on the logistics of actually running the business. However, like any other new marketing and image promotion strategy, SEO involves a good amount of time and money. An effective SEO plan may take up a greater pie of your marketing budget. It's always better to be sure of ROI before you invest in hiring an SEO specialist.

It makes more sense to look for guaranteed ROI than to ask for guaranteed ranking. See how our effective SEO strategy translated into healthy ROI for our customers.

Why can't the search engines find my site without SEO help?

Remember, you are not the only business looking to have a higher ranking in search engines. Everyone who has a website wants it to rank high on Google and Yahoo! As well as other search engines. You should rely on a proven professional to guide you to the top in this competition.

Search engines continually change their technology to deliver improved and more relevant results to users. Therefore, it is vital that you understand the changing scenarios and conform to standards set by search engines crawlers.

Only an experienced SEO specialist can help you make the right moves to attract visitors and attention while avoiding the wrong moves, which may bury your site even deeper in the search results.

A solid business plan, positive mindset for investment in marketing strategy, and patience for results are also key factors for the success of any SEO campaign.

It is necessary to have a solid business plan ready before you decide to stack up an investment to back a b marketing strategy for your business on web. You also need to be patient; results don't happen overnight, and sometimes they don't come for months.

How can I trust you? Why should I trust you?

We don't ask our client to trust us blindly; we ask them to check our results and their trust follows.

Do you have detailed case studies to show verifiable results of search engine positions you've achieved for clients? Does your company adhere to search engines' posted best practices and strict no-spam policies to avoid clients' websites from being penalized—possibly indefinitely—by search engines?

Yes, we strictly use "White Hat SEO" methods to optimize and promote your website. We strictly adhere to and follow Google Webmaster Guidelines and the SEO Code of Ethics. We do not use any kind of software or automated scripts to optimize or promote websites. All the SEO work performed on your website is 100% manual.

Why is SEO so expensive?

Well, quite simply, if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. Consider SEO as an investment and hire a real professional with years of experience backed up by ample client references and performance reports.

Why does SEO require monthly maintenance or ongoing service?

Reaching the top is not the ultimate goal; it is the first step. Once you are at the top, you have to stay there. One-time SEO may work fine to take you to the top, but your competitors are not going sit idly by; they are going to do everything they can to knock you off and topple your ranking.

In order to stay ahead and maintain your top ranking, you need ongoing optimization, analytics, updates to content, reviews, and conversion tracking, which obviously requires ongoing SEO. In a very competitive scenario, you would invariably require ongoing work to the site to be successful.

If you decide to stop the SEO once achieving a certain ranking, you might get the business from the website, but your success will be short lived. To continue to develop your business day after day, ongoing SEO is necessary.
