When is a good time to do SEO?

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

For many website owners, there is a logical process which most companies follow.

1) Build a website
2) Do a pay per click campaign
3) If it goes well pay more into pay per click, experiment with SEO
4) If it doesn’t go well, stop investing in the website.

However, after a website is built, the FIRST step should be determining what your conversion rate is. That means setting up a Google analytics account, getting the goal conversions setup, and MEASURING results from traffic generated from a PPC campaign. What most companies don’t realize is that the number one factor which determines success in a campaign is whether or not the website has the ability to convert. Without that, the money spent on generating traffic is very often wasted. If your site can convert 3-5% of targeted traffic, then there is a good chance you’ll make money from an SEO or Pay per click campaign. If not, then it is wiser to invest the money into improving the fundamentals of the website so that visitors find what they are looking for.

A reputation management crisis

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Reputation management is not the most well-defined term in the industry.  What exactly does it mean?  How does one do reputation management?  The fact is that a lot of SEO’s don’t even know what to do until an incident happens.

It’s not until you’re in a situation where someone is attacking your honor where you realize that Google has a lot of power over what others think of you and your company.  Here is an example one company, absolutepoker.com which literally got devastated by other a few people who were very mad at them.  They decided to advertise under their name to get top placement for their absolutepokercheats.com site and the following is what happened.

Search Engine Optimization Myths

Friday, October 17th, 2008

One of the biggest problems with the SEO world is that anyone can claim to be an SEO expert.  It’s very difficult for someone interested in SEO services to figure out who is really an expert at SEO and who is just good at selling.  Very often, people choose SEO companies based on reputation, but many companies can develop a strong reputation and still be awful at SEO.  Often, the older, larger companies simply rely on their online presence to get new customers, but are serviced by people who know very little about Search Engine Optimization.

The truth is that many online businesses can truly benefit from great SEO, but after being burned by cheaper vendors promising wild guarantees and overcharging with very little results, most people are reluctant to continue with SEO.

Our goal is to blow away misconceptions in the SEO industry, guide people to better ranking, and when you’re ready to take your online marketing to the next level give you the information you need so we can get you there.
