If I was to ask you what the one thing was that every webmaster or blogger craved for I wonder what your answer would be. WOW! You won’t believe this but I just had this mental image of a whole lot of you screaming “Money! We want to line our pockets with money!” I have to admit I understand where you’re coming from, but you all know that’s not going to happen unless you have a whole heap of traffic. It doesn’t matter how good your blog or website is, without traffic its lying dead in the water, or in this case, cyberspace.
So, where do we get this traffic from? Well, when you consider that almost 80% of surfers use one of the major search engines to find what their looking for, the main one being Google, then it’s obvious that you want to achieve top google rankings, and by top I mean you want your site to be in the top ten because that’s where most people commence their search from.
The problem that most people have is they don’t know how to achieve this, a task which is made all the more difficult by the search engines changing algorithm. What they need is a SEO company that will do all the work for them. Now there are a lot out there that will beat their chest saying to the world that they offer the best SEM services (Search Engine Marketing) out there so it’s no easy task to find the right one for you. But then we all know that life was not meant to be easy so it will be up to you to do the research.
You can ask around to see what SEO companies other webmasters or bloggers are using, and you can also use the search engines to see who they recommend. Once you’ve narrowed it down to a select few you will need to have a chat with them and it’s then that you need to ask all the right questions. John F Kennedy once said “ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” Well in this case you need to ask the particular SEO firm what they can do for you. It may even include the construction of some Ecommerce website design or something entirely different. You will certainly want to ask how they intend to get you in the top 10 of the search engines and you may even request that apart from your main site you also want your FaceBook Fan page and YouTube videos to appear there. Why not, the more exposure you get on the first page of Google the better, right?
You may even ask to see some of the work they’ve done for other clients and if they are as good as they say they will be more than happy to accommodate you. As always doing the homework fist will ensure that you make the right choice and making the right choice is the first step on your path to lining those pockets of yours with cash.
