SEO Agency Gold Coast – Are you tired of wasting money?

Tired of wasting money on SEO? Discovering a good SEO Agency in Gold Coast is indeed possible once you get rid of 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 what Internet Marketing Experts Gold Coast will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be a lot more of the same?

The trouble is an SEO Agency does not want you to know the secret recipe to getting those keywords ranked. Why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you know how little they really carried out you each month you would definitely terminate your contract and go elsewhere, this is what I call the game of smoke and mirrors.

Does this seem familiar? ‘Well it takes time in order to get keywords onto the first page’ or ‘Those keywords are too competitive so we will concentrate 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’.

Monthly 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 difficult to get.

So what to do if you believe your SEO Agency in Gold Coast is making use of 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 Gold Coast;

On-page:

  1. Ask to see a finely detailed report of what on page work has been performed 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 web page each day. For example 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 cause almost any SEO Agency in Gold Coast to squirm. Possibly you will get a few responses;

  1. Well we don’t actually give our clients that data.
  2. We just send you a monthly report to measure the results around here that’s the only thing that matters.
  3. Well considering the penguin update a few years ago all of that off-page stuff is no more of any SEO value.
  4. We only create top quality links that’s why we only do very few each month.
  5. If you do too much off-page work you will get penalised by Google
  6. We don’t use all those spammy/blackhat strategies.

Be assured when you ask for something more from your SEO Agency just 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 very likely onto a fairly good SEO Agency. Having said that if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. How much do they really do for you each month? Any suitable SEO Agency in Gold Coast will proudly tell you the number of links they build for you each month. Make sure that it seems like quite a lot.

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

This is the type of numbers you should be seeing 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 not careful and use a reputable Australian company you can get high numbers of links that are all spammy and is going to cost you in the long run with Google penalties, see to it your links are using reliable sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are a lot 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 Gold Coast 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 Gold Coast we pride ourselves on openness and educating our customers so they know exactly what they are getting for their month-to-month spend.
