SEO Agency Gladstone – Are you tired of wasting money?
Tired of wasting money on SEO? Finding a good SEO Agency in Gladstone is actually possible the moment you take out the smoke and mirrors.
Every single day someone tells me their story how they have put in a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask exactly what Internet Marketing Experts Gladstone will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be a lot more of the same?
The problem is an SEO Agency doesn’t want you to understand the secret formula to getting those keywords ranked. The reason why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you learn how little they really provided for you each month you would terminate your contract and go elsewhere, this is what I call the game of smoke and mirrors.
Does this appear familiar? ‘Well it requires time to get keywords onto the 1st page’ or ‘Those keywords are awfully competitive so we will focus on this phrase because some traffic is better than none, right?’ or ‘we do stacks behind the scenes to make sure your existing keywords stay where they are and don’t go down on the page’ or ‘backlinks are not needed’.
Monthly you get a report showing how your keywords are going, and month after month absolutely nothing seems to happen. You can’t get the keywords you want because they are too challenging to get.
So what to do if you think your SEO Agency in Gladstone is applying 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 take away the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Gladstone;
- Ask to see an in depth report of what on page work has been done in the month. This means modifications to Meta Descriptions or fixing on page errors etc.
- Demand 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 lead to almost any SEO Agency in Gladstone to squirm. Probably you will get a few responses;
- Well we don’t actually give our clients that info.
- We just send you a monthly report to measure the results around here that’s the only thing that matters.
- Well since the penguin update a few years ago all of that off-page stuff is no more of any SEO value.
- We only create top quality links that’s why we only do very few every month.
- If you do too much off-page work you are going to get penalised by Google
- We do not use all those spammy/blackhat tactics.
Be assured when you ask for something more from your SEO Agency just like the list mentioned earlier 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 almost definitely onto a fairly 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 Gladstone will proudly tell you the amount of links they build for you each month. Be sure that it seems like a great deal.
Lets say you are spending $1,000 per month with your current SEO Agency?
This is the type of numbers you should be finding 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 done for your website. Remember great websites that rank no 1 in Google, have 10,000 back-inks to their site.
Just a word of caution, if you are simply not careful and use a trustworthy Australian company you can achieve high numbers of links that are all spammy and will definitely cost you in the long run with Google penalties, ensure your links are with reliable sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are lots of Indian companies that promise big volumes, but they will destroy your site in a few short months.
In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Gladstone every month, don’t hesitate to ask for a breakdown of tasks and activities carried out for you each month. Don’t fall for the smoke and mirrors it gets pretty old pretty quick.
At Internet Marketing Experts Gladstone we pride ourselves on openness and educating our customers so they know what they are getting for their month-to-month spend. Imagine having an SEO Agency that provided you with detailed report of every action taken for the month, not just a rankings report?
