Frequent Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why doesn't my Web site rank very well in the search engines?

Having your website rank high in the search engines is a science and the rules for search engine optimization (SEO) are always changing. Here are some reasons why you may be having poor ranking:

  • Incorrect usage of the TITLE tag or no TITLE tag content.
  • Too many occurences of the same word in a page (spamming).
  • Missing H1 and H2 heading tag content.
  • Missing ALT tag content in your graphic links.
  • No meaningful content in the first 250 characters on each page.
  • Less than 200 words per page.
  • Very few pages on your website.
  • No links from other websites to your website (link popularity).

Also, you should always submit your site to any search directories manually. Please do not use automated submission services.

How long does it take for SEO results effective?

The amount of time required to see results of search engine optimization work range anywhere from 2 weeks for existing sites in local or niche markets to 12 months for new websites in a competitive market.

What is my site ranking dependent on?

Site ranking tends to be "cumulative" and is dependent on the following factors:

  1. The specific keyword phrases (search terms) that have been targeted
  2. The overall competitiveness of your industry - how many players are there
  3. Whether you are targeting a regional, national, or international market
  4. How well ranking is monitored and the site tweaked over time for SEO improvement
  5. The progress of your reciprocal linking campaign
  6. number of competitor sites achieving new ranking themselves.

Can you guarantee a number #1 position in the search engines?

Nobody can guarantee a number #1 position or specific ranking for your site for a given keyword phrase. There are simply too many factors beyond anyone's control - the search engines changing their ranking algorithms, efforts made by competitors, and new sites being added to the Web. However, we will actively monitor your site and change the tatics from time to time in order to achieve a best result.
