What is Search Engine Optimization/Search Engine Positioning and do you do this?
Yes, we offer Search Engine Positioning. Positioning is the process of getting a web site to come up higher in a search engines ranking by keyword. In other words, lets say you have an online business that sells skin care products and you don't seem to be able to find your site in the Search Engines very well. You know you are in them, but you have low ranking. Everyone else seems to come up higher than you. What we do is find current searching words/terms that are related to your site, and we implement those into your site for the engines to read. This process takes anywhere from 30 days
- 6 months normally
for the engines to index. Once this has
occurred you achieve higher ranking on those keywords/terms. Customers are able to find you in the engines and can visit your site. We get you into the Top 10, 20 or 30 on the engines rankings (Pages 1, 2 or 3 of the engines search results). We find that most people when doing a search don't look at much past Page
3 (it depends on type of industry, as we see some people going far down in
results for shopping comparisons, for example: vitamins). Since you are within those results you have a higher chance of getting their business. Each site is individually examined and recommendations are given for what will need to be done to get Top results.
Example of Top Search Engine Results (Actual Client - achieved 7 #1 Positions in 30 days!)
Another example for a client that does Camouflage
Luggage. Please contact us if you would like to have higher rankings, or see our services page for more information.
Which Search Engine Service Should I Get?
We will review your site and let you
know what would be the appropriate search engine optimization service or
internet advertising service for your sites. Many sites can do very well with
our basic service, but some sites require more due to complexities in site
design. Please ask for a free
How many Search Engines can I
be submitted to?
We normally submit your site to the Major Engines and to around
200,000 engines & directories. Engine
acceptance varies based upon your keywords, what engines are available, and engine content. We also submit you manually by hand to the Major Engines. Submission to many sites is great for Link Popularity. Link
Popularity means that some of the Search Engines will rank you higher based on how many other sites link to you.
How many Classified Ads can I be submitted to?
The average submission is between 200 to 500. It varies based on how many Classified Ad sites are available.
This is great for link popularity as the classified ad sites get spidered by the
engines and your info gets picked up also. We also do manual to several High
Profile Classified Ad sites (Craigslist, MySpace, & Yahoo!) for $10 each, or
for $40 per hour.
Do You Submit Just My Main Page Or All Pages On My Site?
We usually only submit your main page. Most of the Search Engines ask that only the main URL be submitted. The reason for this is simple. Once your main page is given to the Search Engines, they will then 'spider' or come to your site and index the rest of your pages.
The engines will drill down to all of your pages as long as they can find them.
Make sure that you have links leading to all of your pages. We can add them if
Do You Submit to the Major Search Engines?
Yes- For the Search Engine Submission we manually submit your site to the Major Search Engines:
AltaVista/All the Web/Yahoo! Search, ExactSeek, Goo.ne.jp, Google, Hotbot/Overture/MSN,
Jayde, and AOL/Open Directory Project.) Yahoo! is now pay only to get in. The rest of the submission process is done with software.
All other engines/directories, like AOL and Netscape are derivatives of the
above engines/directories and are included. We can also submit to International
engines if needed (many of them are included in with the Major Engines)..
What do I need to give you to get started?
Just fill in the blanks on our order form.
Please skip anything that does not apply. We do use the information in the
submission process. If you have any questions, please ask.
How much are your services?
A Search Engine Submission is only $15.00 each the first time, and $10.00 for any additional. Combination packages are available for just a little more in cost. Bulk pricing available for large submissions.
We don't recommend preparing the 'free' sites, as the engines don't index them
very well at all. We recommend that you do a Search Engine Optimization
package as a site really needs to be prepared before being submitted,. There is
a lot more to getting ranking then just adding META tags and submitting.
Search Engine Optimization packages start at $825 and up depending on your site design and complexity. Please ask for a free site
review. We will give you an honest appraisal of how your site is doing
in the search egnines.
How do I get a Submission Report? Is there any extra cost?
The Submission Report is complimentary (Free). Just ask for one. Most customers want one, so we usually just include it.
Can you explain how to read the Web
Yes- the Search Engine Ranking Reports will show all the current keywords that you
can now be found under, by engine, page, position, and amount of change since
last report run. You may view them in your browser. Read across from left to
right: 1st column shows your keyword, 2nd column shows your current position
for that keyword, 3rd column shows what search engine page that keyword position
is on, 4th column shows what you last position was from the last report we ran,
5th column shows amount of change from last position to current position (+/-),
and 6th column shows which search engine or directory.
Can you explain how to read the Submission Reports?
Yes- The Submission Reports will show all sites submitted to successfully. You may view them in your browser. The
automated submission and report is a value added service- the part that really
works is doing the manual submission to the Major Engines.
You performed a Search Engine Submission for me yesterday, yet I am not seeing my site in the Major Search Engines today. Why not?
Please be patient. The normal index time for the Major Search Engines is 30 days
- 6 months. Usual time is 3-6 months for your site to be displaying in 99% of the Major Engines. Keywords start to become active in the
1-4 month range. Rule of thumb is 4-6 months for traffic. They get thousands of submissions daily. Yahoo! is now pay only to get in. They will review your site within 7
business days. The more original or unique your site is, the better chance you will have to get added to YAHOO! You will be listed automatically in many of the minor search engines. Search engine indexing takes time.
Index Rates for the Major Search Engines: New sites may take longer.
(General indexing time is 28-45 days).
- AltaVista/All the Web/Yahoo! Search 4
- 6 weeks
- Google/Goo.ne.jp/Netscape/AOL 2 - 6 weeks
- MSN 4 -
- Open Directory Project/DMOZ 2 weeks to Several Months. Human edited, and they decide whether to accept or reject.
- Yahoo Submission/YAHOO! Business Express up to 7
business days. $ Pay site. Human edited, and they decide whether to accept or reject.
If your site was in Yahoo! before 12-28-2001, you will not have an annual
PageRank Algorithm Chart - See link for Google
Page Rank calculations/search engine rank tool. The more sites that link to you,
the better Page Rank that you have on Google (Not to be confused with actual
ranking. It's basically a numbers game).
I saw that you have Monthly Submissions. How can that help me?
Once your site has been submitted, it is highly recommended that it be
resubmitted on a regular basis, as that is what will keep your rankings up, plus
some of the engines require 6-9 months of submissions to keep you in (show as an
active site). You also can get higher rankings by
re-submitting (ranking boost). You also may have new information on your web pages that you might want reflected in the search engines & classified ads.*It is extremely important that you keep adding your site to the Search Engines, whether through this service, or another. Otherwise you will not be found in the Search Engines. Optimal Submission Rate is once every 30 days.
We do manual search submissions to the Major Engines every 30 days. This will
keep your rankings up (this is the only thing that keeps you in the engines,
and keeps you with high web site rankings).
I have a new site and am not getting any traffic. Which is the best service for me?
That depends on your budget. We recommend doing a free site review and then we
will let you know what can be done for you based upon your site design and
needs. Ask for a free
What are Meta Tags? Do I need them?
Meta Tags are HTML design language that tell the Search Engines how to index your site. They look like: META NAME="KEYWORDS"
CONTENT="arizona realty, phoenix homes, phoenix realtor, arizona investment
properties, scottsdale real estate, scottsdale homes". The most common ones we use are Description and Keywords. A Meta Tag for Description is a simple sentence or small paragraph describing your web site/products. This is what people may see in some of the engines when they do a search for you. A Meta Tag for Keywords will list descriptive words that are related to your site content.
No one will see your Meta Tags except the Search Engines.
We recommend highly that you have Meta Tags in your site before you have a Search Engine Registration,
as some engines still use these. Not all engines use them now though. We can help you select your Meta Tags. Just ask!
(it's part of our seo packages). Most of the engines are not just using META tags, but
are using a combination of titles, META tags, ALT tags, Comment stags, keyword
linking, and text on your site. By modifying all of this to fit the engine requirements,
you get good ranking and can be found. Order
