SEO Agency Albany – Are you tired of wasting money?

Fed up with wasting money on SEO? Uncovering a good SEO Agency in Albany is indeed possible once you take out the smoke and mirrors.

On a daily basis someone tells me their story how they have put in a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask exactly what Internet Marketing Experts Albany will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be more of the same?

The issue is an SEO Agency does not 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 actually created for you each month you would terminate your contract and go somewhere else, this is what I call the game of smoke and mirrors.

Does this appear familiar? ‘Well it takes some time to get keywords onto the first page’ or ‘Those keywords are way too competitive so we will concentrate on this particular 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 hard to get.

So what to do if you believe your SEO Agency in Albany is operating 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 take away the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Albany;

On-page:

  1. Ask to see a specific report of what on page work has been done in the month. This means changes to Meta Descriptions or fixing on page errors etc.

Off-Page:

  1. Ask to see a daily or weekly report of what off page tasks are completed for your business’ website each day. For example you want to see a list of the following items each day or week;

a.Social Bookmarking

b.Web Directory Listings

c.Classified Ads Posted

d.Ping Submissions

e.Local Directory Listings

f.Q & A site posts

g.Blog commenting

Be Warned! This line of questioning will cause almost any SEO Agency in Albany to squirm. Most likely you will get a few responses;

  1. Well we don’t in fact give our clients that info.
  2. We simply just send you a monthly report to gauge the results around here that’s the only thing that matters.
  3. Well considering the penguin update a few years ago most of that off-page stuff is not of any SEO value.
  4. We only create top quality links that’s why we only do very few every month.
  5. If you do a lot of off-page work you will definitely get penalised by Google
  6. We don’t use those spammy/blackhat tactics.

Be assured when you ask for 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 certainly onto a quite good SEO Agency. Having said that if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. Just how much do they in fact do for you each month? Any respectable SEO Agency in Albany will proudly tell you the amount of links they build for you each month. Be sure that it sounds like plenty.

Lets say you are putting in $1,000 per month with your current SEO Agency?

This is the type of figures 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 every 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 caution, if you are simply not mindful and use a reputable Australian company you can get high numbers of links which are all spammy and will certainly 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 guarantee big volumes, but they will devastate your site in a few short months.

In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Albany each month, don’t be afraid to ask for a detailed list of tasks and activities performed for you each month. Don’t fall for the smoke and mirrors it gets pretty old pretty quick.

At Internet Marketing Experts Albany we pride ourselves on openness and educating our clients so they know exactly what they are getting for their monthly spend. Imagine having an SEO Agency that provided you with detailed report of every action taken for the month, not just a rankings report?
