SEO Agency Maitland – Are you tired of wasting money?

Tired of wasting money on SEO? Searching for a good SEO Agency in Maitland is indeed possible as soon as you take out the smoke and mirrors.

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

The trouble 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 understand how little they really provided 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 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 some traffic is better than none, right?’ or ‘we do loads behind the scenes to make sure your existing keywords stay where they are and don’t decrease on the page’ or ‘backlinks are not needed’.

Each month you get a report demonstrating 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 Maitland 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 eliminate the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Maitland;

On-page:

  1. Ask to see a complete report of what on page work has been carried out in the month. This means modifications to Meta Descriptions or fixing on page errors etc.

Off-Page:

  1. Demand to see a daily or weekly report of what off page tasks are completed for your web site each day. For instance you want to see a rundown 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 Advised! This line of questioning will cause almost any SEO Agency in Maitland to squirm. Possibly you will get a few responses;

  1. Well we don’t in fact give our clients that data.
  2. We simply send you a monthly report to measure the results around here that’s the only thing that matters.
  3. Well since the penguin update a few years ago most of that off-page stuff is no longer of any SEO value.
  4. We only create first class links that’s why we only do very few each month.
  5. If you do too much off-page work you will definitely get penalised by Google
  6. We do not use those spammy/blackhat tactics.

Be assured when you ask for anything more from your SEO Agency just like 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 certainly onto a fairly good SEO Agency. However if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. Just how much do they really do for you each month? Any suitable SEO Agency in Maitland will proudly tell you the number of links they build for you each month. Make sure that it sounds like an ample amount.

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 everyday 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 cautious and use a credible Australian company you can reach high amounts of links that are all spammy and will certainly cost you eventually with Google penalties, ensure your links are using reliable sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are plenty 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 Maitland every 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 Maitland we pride ourselves on transparency and educating our customers so they know what they are getting for their month-to-month spend. Imagine having an SEO Agency that supplied you with detailed report of every action taken for the month, not just a rankings report?
