We have so many inquiring clients ask about SEO.  What is it, how can I get it, and what does it cost?

Just as one can define how to improve your SEO, the answers can vary.

So many people are looking to become, “number one on Google” for their specific business.  But ranking on the first page of Google or any other search engine does take time AND persistence.

We have reached out to many marketers and SEO firms over the time we have been in business, and their responses also varied.  But there were a few answers that were unanimous:

  1. Stay consistent on Google Place Listings and other Top Citation Links
  2. Update your content regulary
  3. Focus on SEO Keywords

We wanted to focus on these all briefly.

Stay consistent on Google Place Listings and other Top Citation Links

We mentioned in one of our recent posts, how to get your business linked on top citation links so we will skip past that recommendation.

Update Your Content

Don’t forget while adding your new content, to add reputable links.  Don’t be scared to have a user jump away from your page to see a URL you linked.  If your linkee sees the shout out, they very well may shout out back. 🙂  That also increases your SEO, being found on multiple web sources.
