SEO Agency Alice Springs – Are you tired of wasting money?
Fed up with wasting money on SEO? Spotting a good SEO Agency in Alice Springs is actually possible once you take out the smoke and mirrors.
Everyday someone tells me their story how they have spent a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask exactly what Internet Marketing Experts Alice Springs will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be even more of the same?
The trouble is an SEO Agency does not really want you to understand the secret formula to getting those keywords ranked. Exactly why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you learn how little they actually carried out you each month you would certainly cancel your contract and go elsewhere, this is what I call the game of smoke and mirrors.
Does this seem familiar? ‘Well it takes some time in order to get keywords onto the 1st page’ or ‘Those keywords are awfully competitive so we will focus on this phrase because a little traffic is far better than none, right?’ or ‘we do lots behind the scenes to make sure your existing keywords stay where they are and don’t decrease on the page’ or ‘backlinks are not needed’.
Every month you get a report showing how your keywords are going, and month after month nothing at all seems to happen. You can’t get the keywords you want because they are too tough to get.
So what to do if you believe your SEO Agency in Alice Springs is putting to use the good old ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ trick to keep you pouring money down the drain on a second rate SEO campaign?
Here is my sure fire way to get rid of the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Alice Springs;
- Ask to see an in-depth report of what on page work has been done in the month. This means changes to Meta Descriptions or fixing on page errors etc.
- Ask to see a daily or weekly report of what off page tasks are completed for your web page each day. For example you want to see a rundown of the following items each day or week;
b.Web Directory Listings
c.Classified Ads Posted
e.Local Directory Listings
f.Q & A site posts
Be Warned! This line of questioning will result in almost any SEO Agency in Alice Springs to squirm. Usually you will get a few responses;
- Well we don’t actually give our clients that info.
- We simply send you a monthly report to evaluate the results around here that’s all that matters.
- Well since the penguin update a few years ago most of that off-page stuff is not of any SEO value.
- We only create top quality links that’s why we only do very few every month.
- If you do a lot of off-page work you will get penalised by Google
- We never use those spammy/blackhat tactics.
Be assured when you ask for something more from your SEO Agency just like the list mentioned above if they respond happily and furnish you a detailed list of all the work they have done for you in the past in detail link by link then you are certainly onto a good SEO Agency. Having said that if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. How much do they really do for you each month? Any suitable SEO Agency in Alice Springs will proudly tell you the number of links they build for you each month. Be sure that it seems like plenty.
Lets say you are putting in $1,000 per month with your current SEO Agency?
This is the sort of numbers you should be seeing every month.
a.Social Bookmarking x 20 per day
b.Web Directory Listings x 10 per day
c.Classified Ads Posted x 10 per day
d.Ping Submissions x 10 per day
e.Local Directory Listings x 2 per week
f.Q & A site posts x 1 per day
g.Blog commenting x 1 per day
That’s a total of over 50 tasks everyday that should be getting provided for your website. Remember great websites that rank no 1 in Google, have 10,000 back-inks to their site.
Just a word of warning, if you are simply not careful and use a professional Australian company you can achieve high figures of links that are all spammy and will cost you down the road with Google penalties, ensure your links are using reputable sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are lots of Indian companies that guarantee big volumes, but they will devastate your site in a few short months.
In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Alice Springs each month, don’t be afraid to ask for a breakdown of tasks and activities performed for you each month. Don’t fall for the smoke and mirrors it gets pretty old pretty quick.
