Everyday someone tells me their experience how they have spent a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask what Internet Marketing Experts Geelong 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 really want you to learn the secret recipe to making those keywords ranked. Exactly why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you learn 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 sound familiar? ‘Well it takes some time in order to get keywords onto the 1st page’ or ‘Those keywords are awfully competitive so we will concentrate on this phrase because a little traffic is far better than none, right?’ or ‘we do stacks 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’.

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 believe your SEO Agency in Geelong 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 remove the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Geelong;

On-page:

  1. Ask to see a finely detailed 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:

2. Ask 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 Warned! This line of questioning will lead to almost any SEO Agency in Geelong to squirm. Likely you will get a few responses;

  1. Well we don’t actually give our clients that info.
  2. We simply just send you a monthly report to assess the results around here that’s all 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 top quality links that’s why we only do very few monthly.
  5. If you do a lot of off-page work you are going to get penalised by Google
  6. We don’t use those spammy/blackhat tactics.

Be assured when you request anything more from your SEO Agency just 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 very likely onto a quite good SEO Agency. Nevertheless if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. How much do they really do for you each month? Any good SEO Agency in Geelong 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 sort of numbers 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 provided 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 mindful and use a trusted Australian company you can get high figures of links that are all spammy and is going to cost you over time with Google penalties, ensure your links are with reliable sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are lots of Indian companies that guarantee big volumes, but they will sabotage your site in a few short months.

In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Geelong each month, don’t hesitate to ask for a breakdown 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 Geelong we pride ourselves on transparency and educating our customers so they know what they are getting for their monthly spend. Imagine having an SEO Agency that supplied you with detailed report of every action taken for the month, not just a rankings report?
