Frequently Asked Questions about Google
I'm being told I need to submit my website every two
months to search engines to get better rankings and I see there
are many companies that do this. Do you?
No, this was true almost 10 years ago but not since. At one
time search engines did not have the resources to store all the
web pages that where submitted to them so you had to re-submit
often to stay listed. Now, just the opposite is true you submit
your website more than once, maybe twice, you get banned from
their search engine for spamming their resources. Also, if you
have an inbound link from a website already in a search engines
data base you need not submit your website at all because it
will already be listed via their spyder which follows all the
links. Technology has come a long way and continues to do so.
If I use your services how soon will I see results?
That depends on several factors:
- The Age of the Website
- The Keyword Phrase Chosen
- The Amount of Competition for that keyword phrase
- The Amount of Inbound Links to the Competition and How
Well Their Page Is Optimized for Google
The only way we can get an estimated time for a top 10
ranking is by actually doing a complete evaluation. But in very
general worst case scenario terms six months to a year for a top
10 placement. Each website is different with different needs to
achieve top 10 placement.
How to You Determine the Best Keyword Phrase for My
This is one of the hardest things we do. First, we use the
keyword phrase you supply us to use.
Then we have several independent average people look at the
website and ask what keyword phrase would you use to find this
website in Google.
We then take all of the answers along with the keyword phrase or
phrases supplied by you and run them through three different
data bases to find out which is actually used more by real
We get an actual count of how many people searched for that
keyword phrase in the last 24 Hrs., past month and last six
months on Google, on Yahoo! and on MSN Live.
Why do we check Yahoo! and MSN Live?
This gives us a broader base to work with which give a more
accurate estimate on future searches.
And the one that has the most people using it, is what we
suggest you use. Notice we said suggest, your the one that makes
the finial decision on the keyword phrase we're not here to
force you into anything.
How Important is it that My Website Look Good.
How your website looks has no relevance on how it ranks with
Google. And more often then not has no effect on most visitors.
As long as it is clean and neat.
Websites that perform the best in both search engines and
with clients are those that are basically simple, easy to use
But your navigational structure and codes do matter greatly
with search engines.
I'm going broke on Google AdWords and I'm #1 on the list.
What am I doing wrong?
Many people when trying to find a quick solution to getting a
top ranking in Google jump onto AdWords without doing so much
First, used properly AdWords can help your sales, what you
have to understand is how people search for things on Google and
what they react to when search results are displayed. And what
your profit per sale will be is extremely important.
Since AdWords are a bid for position and top spot can run
anywhere between $1 per click to $50 per click and even more for
some keyword phrases. So it's important to realize what your
actual profits per sale will be. If your making a $20 profit per
sale you could bid up to $1 per click and still make some money
not much but some money. Basic rule is to only bid up to 5% of
your profit margin. As your going to get plenty of clicks from
your competition checking you out and looky Lou's just seeing
what you offer. Getting caught up in a bidding war will only
cost you more money.
Searchers can be broken down into 80% and 20% which is 80%
will not click on to ads and only click onto the normal none
paid for links. Why? They know that they are paid for and don't
think they'll give them what they are looking for. So let's say
there are 100 people searching your keyword phrase in Google and
your top dog in AdWords at the very most you'll get 20 people to
click your ad link. And the guy in the #1 position in the normal
search position will get 35 people to click to his website for
free and only because he took the time to properly optimize his
