SEO Agency Australia – Are you tired of wasting money?
Fed up with wasting money on SEO? Spotting a good SEO Agency in Australia is actually possible as soon as you clear away the smoke and mirrors.
Every single day someone tells me their experience how they have invested a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask what Internet Marketing Experts Australia 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 recipe to making those keywords ranked. Why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you understand how little they actually created for you each month you would certainly cancel your contract and go elsewhere, 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 awfully competitive so we will concentrate on this particular phrase because a little traffic is 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’.
Each month you get a report showing 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 challenging to get.
So what to do if you believe your SEO Agency in Australia 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 remove the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Australia;
- Ask to see a specific report of what on page work has been done in the month. This means modifications to Meta Descriptions or fixing on page errors etc.
2. Demand 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 Advised! This line of questioning will result in almost any SEO Agency in Australia to squirm. Usually you will get a few responses;
- Well we don’t really give our clients that information.
- We simply just send you a monthly report to evaluate 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 no longer of any SEO value.
- We only create premium links that’s why we only do very few each month.
- If you do a lot of off-page work you will definitely get penalised by Google
- We do not use all those spammy/blackhat tactics.
Be assured when you ask for anything more from your SEO Agency 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 in all likelihood onto a fairly good SEO Agency. Having said that if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. Just how much do they truly do for you each month? Any respectable SEO Agency in Australia will proudly tell you the number of links they build for you each month. Ensure that it sounds like a whole lot.
Lets say you are investing $1,000 per month with your current SEO Agency?
This is the kind of figures 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 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 warning, if you are simply not cautious and use a credible Australian company you can obtain high figures of links that are all spammy and is going to cost you down the road with Google penalties, ensure your links are with respectable sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are a lot of Indian companies that guarantee big volumes, but they will ruin your site in a few short months.
In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Australia every 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.
