What to Expect
The first thing that happens when you contact us is we’ll set up your search engine optimization consultation and website analysis. This is a free service we offer to anyone who asks for it. We will meet with you over the phone or in person to discuss your business’ online goals, answer your questions and come up with some broad keyword ideas for your campaign. We will then use this information to pick out the most profitable keywords to center your SEO campaign around.
Next, we will present you with a monthly price quote for your SEO project. Normally this includes an SEO campaign targeting 4-5 keywords in one city (if SEO is for local search). Additional keywords and cities cost extra. If you had decided to include any other of our services, such as social media marketing or pay-per-click search engine advertising, these would also be included in the quote.
If you find our price and service plan acceptable, we would begin working on your SEO campaign upon receipt of the first month’s payment and start-up fee. Typically set-up and configuration of SEO factors on your website would be done within the first two weeks, with link-building and site promotion beginning after that. Again, any other additional services you chose would be configured and begun during that first month.
Our off-site link building begins during the first month, and does not stop. Each month, we would continue to build quality, one-way links to your site from a number of different sources. We do this to emulate a website becoming more popular naturally online, with more and more sites linking to it.
It is important to remember that search engine optimization is a slow process, and we cannot rush it or we will risk serious negative consequences in your search engine rankings. Typically, positive movement higher up the search engine rankings would be observed within the first 2-4 months. That would continue to grow, sometimes relatively quickly, sometimes slowly (it all depends on what kind of market you are in and what the competition is like) over the next 6-8 months. Some websites will achieve top ranking within 8-12 months, while it may take some at least 2 years.
During this time, you can expect monthly printed reports delivered to you, so you can keep track of all your website’s ranking activity and search engine optimization work that is being done.
Once the top ranking has been achieved, we go into maintenance mode, as we continue to build links and modify website factors as needed to maintain the top position, and stay ahead of the competition.
What Kind of Traffic Improvement Will I See?
We make no guarantees as to the amount of traffic your website will receive, as that is, ultimately, out of our direct control. But, 99% of the time, your website will see great improvements in traffic, and consequently, in sales and/or lead generation. Since 80% of Internet users never look past the first page of results, you should not expect to see significant website traffic improvement until you are at least at the top of the second page of results. As you move onto the first page, and up to the #1 spot, the traffic increases exponentially.
