If you are like most businesses, you want your company website to be at the top of search engine listings. And there are plenty of firms that promise to work search engine optimization miracles seemingly overnight to get you there. However, there is no magic bullet for higher rankings, and any company that tells you differently is likely scaming you. Here are some tell-tale signs to watch for.
There are no guarantees in the SEO process. Algorithms and strategies change all the time, and we’re all working to stay on top of them.
No company can get your site to the top of the rankings overnight without using unscrupulous SEO tactics. These carry heavy penalties. Resist the urge to pay for quick results.
As with everything in life, you get what you pay for when it comes to search engine optimization companies. Inexpensive services likely mean inferior results.
Insider Access to Google
Google and its algorithm are bastions of impartiality. No company has an “insider” relationship that it can use to your advantage.
The best SEO methods are well documented and common. “Secret” practices likely mean unethical practices.
Outrageous Engine Submissions
It doesn’t matter if a company claims to submit website information to thousands of search engines. The big four -- Google, Yahoo, MSN/Bing and AOL – account for 95 percent of searches.
Unsolicited SEO Feedback
Never believe those emails that tell you your site has awful SEO. If you want to have a website evaluated for SEO and get helpful feedback, it’s best to hire a reputable professional.
