FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is SEO?
SEO is short for “search engine optimization” which is the process of increasing the exposure and visbility of a website within the major search engines (Google/Yahoo/Bing). A website is only optimized when each web page has the proper amount of content, keywords, and quality links pointing to the site.
Are there any contracts?
No, there are no contracts or obligations – all billing is month to month without penalties. We want to keep your business because of our the results we provide, not because of an agreement.
How do you get websites on the 1st page of Google?
We analyze each page on your website and make sure the meta data is set up correctly, content is unique and optimized with the correct keywords, and we produce lots of high quality content that we submit to our network of relevant blogs and directories, which in turn will link back to your site. The more high quality links we create, the faster you will achieve 1st page rankings.

SEO is extremely time intensive from researching the proper keywords, to creating share-worthy content (shooting videos, writing articles, setting up links, guest blogging, rank tracking, etc). SEO is a long term investment that once you get ranked on the 1st page, the dividends keep paying you back every day, then it is just a matter of us maintaining your 1st page ranking that we achieve for you.
When will I see results?
This is the question we get most often, the answer is — it varies. The competition level of each keyword is what determines how fast the keyword is ranked on the first page of the search engines. A real estate agent in New York City may take 3-6 months to rank on the 1st page, where as a plumber in rural West Virginia will take 2 weeks to get to the 1st page.
