Fed up with wasting money on SEO? Discovering a good SEO Agency in Cairns is indeed possible the moment 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 just what Internet Marketing Experts Cairns will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be much more of the same?
The trouble is an SEO Agency does not really want you to find out the secret recipe to getting those keywords ranked. Exactly why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you learn how little they actually did for you each month you would definitely terminate your contract and go someplace else, this is what I call the game of smoke and mirrors.
Does this appear familiar? ‘Well it takes time in order to get keywords onto the 1st page’ or ‘Those keywords are awfully competitive so we will focus on this particular phrase because a little 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’.
On a monthly basis 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 believe your SEO Agency in Cairns 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 remove the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Cairns;
- Ask to see a complete report of what on page work has been performed in the month. This means modifications to Meta Descriptions or fixing on page errors etc
2. Demand 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 Warned! This line of questioning will result in almost any SEO Agency in Cairns to squirm. Probably you will get a few responses;
- Well we don’t in fact give our clients that info.
- We just 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 top quality links that’s why we only do very few every month.
- If you do too much off-page work you will definitely get penalised by Google
- We do not use all those spammy/blackhat strategies.
Be assured when you ask for anything more from your SEO Agency such as 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 pretty good SEO Agency. Nevertheless if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. Just how much do they actually do for you each month? Any suitable SEO Agency in Cairns will proudly tell you how many links they build for you each month. Ensure that it seems like a great deal.
Lets say you are putting in $1,000 per month with your current SEO Agency?
This is the kind of numbers you should be noticing 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 daily 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 trustworthy Australian company you can obtain high figures of links that are all spammy and is going to cost you eventually with Google penalties, ensure that your links are using trusted sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are lots of Indian companies that promise big volumes, but they will ruin your site in a few short months.
In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Cairns every 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.
