Tired of wasting money on SEO? Choosing a good SEO Agency in Adelaide is indeed possible the moment you clear away the smoke and mirrors.
On a daily basis someone tells me their experience how they have put in a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask just what Internet Marketing Experts Adelaide will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be more of the same?
The problem is an SEO Agency does not really want you to find out the secret formula to getting those keywords ranked. Exactly why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you know how little they actually created 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 seem familiar? ‘Well it requires time in order to get keywords onto the first page’ or ‘Those keywords are too competitive so we will focus on this phrase because some traffic is far better than none, right?’ or ‘we do heaps 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’.
Each month 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 tough to get.
So what to do if you think your SEO Agency in Adelaide is taking advantage of 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 Adelaide;
- Ask to see a specific report of what on page work has been performed in the month. This means changes 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 business’ website each day. For instance 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 Adelaide to squirm. Possibly 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 since the penguin update a few years ago all of that off-page stuff is not of any SEO value.
- We only create premium links that’s why we only do very few monthly.
- If you do too much off-page work you are going to get penalised by Google
- We never use those spammy/blackhat strategies.
Be assured when you ask for anything more from your SEO Agency like the list 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 certainly onto a good SEO Agency. Nevertheless if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. How much do they truly do for you each month? Any decent SEO Agency in Adelaide will proudly tell you the amount of links they build for you each month. Make sure 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 simply not mindful and use a professional Australian company you can achieve high numbers of links which are all spammy and will cost you eventually with Google penalties, ensure your links are using respectable 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 Adelaide every month, don’t hesitate to ask for a detailed list of tasks and activities carried out for you each month. Don’t fall for the smoke and mirrors it gets pretty old pretty quick.
