SEO Agency Melbourne – Are you tired of wasting money?
Fed up with wasting money on SEO? Searching for a good SEO Agency in Melbourne is actually possible as soon as you remove the smoke and mirrors.
Everyday someone tells me their story how they have put in a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask what Internet Marketing Experts Melbourne will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be even more of the same?
The issue is an SEO Agency does not want you to learn the secret formula to getting those keywords ranked. The reason why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you learn how little they actually provided for you each month you would certainly terminate your contract and go elsewhere, this is what I call the game of smoke and mirrors.
Does this sound familiar? ‘Well it requires time in order to get keywords onto the 1st page’ or ‘Those keywords are way too competitive so we will focus on this phrase because some traffic is far better than none, right?’ or ‘we do lots behind the scenes to make sure your existing keywords stay where they are and don’t decrease on the page’ or ‘backlinks are no longer needed’.
On a monthly basis you get a report demonstrating 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 hard to get.
So what to do if you think your SEO Agency in Melbourne is employing 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 Melbourne;
- Ask to see an in-depth report of what on page work has been carried out in the month. This means changes to Meta Descriptions or fixing on page errors etc
2. 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 rundown 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 lead to almost any SEO Agency in Melbourne to squirm. Most likely you will get a few responses;
- Well we don’t really give our clients that info.
- We just send you a monthly report to gauge 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 not of any SEO value.
- We only create high quality links that’s why we only do very few every month.
- If you do too much off-page work you will get penalised by Google
- We never use those spammy/blackhat methods.
Be assured when you request something more from your SEO Agency like 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 good SEO Agency. Even so if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. How much do they actually do for you each month? Any respectable SEO Agency in Melbourne will proudly tell you the amount of 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 sort 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 each 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 not cautious and use a credible Australian company you can reach high numbers of links which are all spammy and will certainly cost you over time with Google penalties, see to it your links are using trustworthy sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are an abundance of Indian companies that promise big volumes, but they will sabotage your site in a few short months.
In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Melbourne each 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.
