What exactly is SEO?
When should I begin considering SEO?
Simply put, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of understanding what factors help a website achieve higher ranking in the search engines and then crafting and implementing those elements into the overall online presence including website, marketing
, PR, engagement, etc.
Some call it a science, some call it an art; in truth, it is a little bit of both. In the early days of SEO it was a bit like the Wild West with good guys and bad guys and a lot of mistaken information floating around. But SEO has grown up, although there are still plenty of nefarious players around, and nowadays most every company of size who wishes to succeed on the Internet retains, employs or has employed, an SEO person or firm to help them navigate the SEO landscape.
Is SEO a one shot deal or an ongoing process?
You should make SEO a part of your online efforts as early in the game as you can. SEO is a crucial element of the design
of websites, the content within them and the marketing efforts to drive traffic as well. Simply put, do NOT make SEO an after thought...that would be like creating the blueprints for a house...after you have built it.
How much does SEO cost?
Your choice. There are often things which an SEO audit can uncover and which are relatively easy to fix or at least don’t need ongoing maintenance once addressed. Then there are strategies and plans and enhancements, all of which can be arranged in small chunks of time and money or as part of an ongoing plan
that keeps building on itself month after month.
For the budget conscious we suggest doing an audit and seeing what basic steps could be taken to shape things up. Often times that is all you need. Otherwise, a well defined plan extending over a period of months will often be the best route to take. It seems search engines like websites which have a steady flow of improvements, enhancements, additions and activity. This is usually best implemented over time so as to create a profile of solid growth and improvement.
How much you spend on SEO is up to you. If you have never had any SEO work done on your site and you are in a small or somewhat small market without loads of competition then a tune-up may be all you need to see some good results.
On the other hand, if you are facing some serious competition including well established players or large numbers of competitors, you may well want to embark on a serious SEO plan covering months or even years and dedicate some significant funds to it.
I get emails all the time promising SEO services, Facebook “likes” and social media traffic. What do you think?
At ProClass we have clients who do a one shot SEO tune-up for a few hundred dollars to ones who spend $150 per month to larger clients spending thousands per month, year after year. It is all about goals and budgets.
How do I know who is offering real SEO or is just a scammer?
Unsolicited emails offering SEO services, social media “likes” or lots of new traffic to your website overnight may sound tempting but are in fact garbage at best and search engine poison at worst. Either way, you will lose a lot of money.
Real SEO firms and professionals seldom if ever send out email blasts. Mostly they work from legitimate websites found in the search engines, have excellent references, a track record going back years and they don’t make promises or guarantees.
Anyone offering 10,000 “likes”, 1000 links, tons of new traffic, or that they will put you on the 1st page in Google is probably a black hat SEO player
….especially if they will do it for $99 per month.
