Fed up with wasting money on SEO? Identifying a good SEO Agency in Mt Gambier is actually possible once you get rid of the smoke and mirrors.
On a daily basis someone tells me their story how they have invested a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask exactly what Internet Marketing Experts Mt Gambier will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be more of the same?
The problem is an SEO Agency doesn’t really want you to find out the secret recipe to getting those keywords ranked. Why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you recognize how little they really carried out you each month you would certainly terminate your contract and go somewhere else, this is what I call the game of smoke and mirrors.
Does this seem familiar? ‘Well it requires time in order to get keywords onto the 1st page’ or ‘Those keywords are awfully competitive so we will concentrate on this particular phrase because a little traffic is better than none, right?’ or ‘we do lots behind the scenes to make sure your existing keywords stay where they are and don’t drop on the page’ or ‘backlinks are not needed’.
Monthly 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 challenging to get.
So what to do if you think your SEO Agency in Mt Gambier is using 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 eliminate the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Mt Gambier;
- Ask to see a specific report of what on page work has been done in the month. This means modifications 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 website each day. For example you want to see a list 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 Advised! This line of questioning will lead to almost any SEO Agency in Mt Gambier to squirm. Most likely you will get a few responses;
- Well we don’t actually give our clients that information.
- We simply send you a monthly report to evaluate the results around here that’s all that matters.
- Well considering the penguin update a few years ago most of that off-page stuff is no longer of any SEO value.
- We only create high quality links that’s why we only do very few monthly.
- If you do too much off-page work you will get penalised by Google
- We don’t use all those spammy/blackhat strategies.
Be assured when you request anything more from your SEO Agency such as 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 more than likely 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 truly do for you each month? Any respectable SEO Agency in Mt Gambier will proudly tell you how many links they build for you each month. Make sure that it seems like plenty.
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 each day 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 warning, if you are not careful and use a respectable Australian company you can reach high amounts of links which are all spammy and is going to cost you over time with Google penalties, make sure your links are with reputable sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are a lot of Indian companies that declare big volumes, but they will destroy your site in a few short months.
In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Mt Gambier 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.
