SEO Facts and fiction

There are adverts all over the net for SEO

“Top listing in Google only $19.95″
“Get listed on 3000 search engines for only $9.95″
“Guaranteed results in 24 hours”

The only thing I can say about these are that you get what you pay for, which is basically nothing. While someone may submit your site to 3000 search engines - who cares - there are about 6 or 7 that are key, and a submission to them doesn’t guarantee any listing at all.

As far as a top listing in Google - yes - its possible, its also possible that due to some very unethical approaches, your site will be banned. Finally the one I love - results in 24 hours…..not in this world or the next UNLESS you are personal friends with Sergey Brin.

Ethical SEO is not difficult, but it is time consuming. It requires thought, planning, good copywriting skills, understanding of how search engines work and patience. We have a number of sites that we manage that are at the top of their categories for key search terms on Google, but it didn’t happen overnight, and it certainly wasn’t actioned for $19.95.

Don’t waste your money on these con artists. If you are really interested in results, talk to a pro and be prepared to set aside a long term budget to get the results that you want. It may require creation of content screens, creation of link and site maps and it will most likely require re-writing of your main page to achieve the results you want.
