SEO can be very tricky in 2017 and many tactics that worked before might be obsolete now and can only harm your SEO performance.

Ask an SEO Expert: Common Questions about SEO

How long does it take to see results after I hire an SEO expert?

There are many different factors that will affect the timeline and results. Before I start my services I’ll analyse your website and based on your goals and budget will provide an estimate on how long it will take to rank your website on the first page and how much it will cost you. Some of the factors that I will consider:

  • How much content you have on the site, how frequently you update it
  • The quality of your backlink profile
  • Previous SEO activities and efforts
  • Keywords and niche competitiveness
  • Budget, goals and expectations

Websites with clean backlink profile and quality content can rank for low to medium keywords within 4-8 months. If you had any Google penalties, over optimization or low-quality content it can take an additional 1-4 months to rank it top 10.

If you need a quick turnaround and results we can set up a paid campaign on search engines and social media and you can see first visitors on the next day.

Should I wrok with SEO company or independanat SEO expert? Whats the difference?

If you think that working with SEO company can help you save time and money and get professional service you might be wrong. Your monthly SEO fee will usually include office lease, sales commissions, operational expenses, and some portion will go toward actual SEO activities that will be done by junior marketer. The junior SEOs not usually have experience or interest to execute on SEO strategy and deliver performance based services. In most cases you are paying for the brand, and majority of work are done by inexperienced marketers.

If you work with independent SEO expert you have a direct access to the knowledge, can get an educated answers (not the Sales templates) and your services fees are going towards importing your ranking and website. An SEO expert can be an extension of your team, attend meeting, review progress with you and you can be sure that his experience will help your business grow revenue online.

There are so many SEO experts and companies on Google. How are you different?

My policy is to be honest and transparent to prospects and existing clients. My goal is not just sell you the number of backlinks but to help your website get more traffic, calls and qute requests by optimizing competitive keywords with a good amount of search traffic and improve your ranking from “not in top 100” to “top 10” (first page) of Google. Other SEO experts will only mention “recommended period – 6 month”, “12 years in business”, “we helped 1000 companies”, “improve your ranking”, “get tons of traffic”, “be on top/front of Google” but all that won’t help your website be on first page of Google?

In average, the majority of keywords rank in top 10 within 3-8 months, some low competitive keywords for well-established websites rank even faster – within first 2 months. Although highly competitive keywords can take up to 12 months to rank on the first page. I provide a personalized analysis and advice to every client and closely monitor their SEO campaigns because your success is my goal!

I have a e-commerce/real estate/restaurant/roofing website. Do you have experience in my field?

My SEO work is a perfect fit for any type of websites and keywords, geographical area and type of optimization (global/local). Moreover, I know exactly what need to be done to, how much it will cost and how long it will take to rank you on the first page of Google. I worked on wide range of projects and clients that include local flower shop, real estate brokers, eCommerce websites (worldwide), in Toronto, Markham, Vancouver, Calgary, Los Angles, New York, London and others. I can rank any keyword for any website in any city and country.

How do you optimize websites? Do you use only white hat SEO techniques?

I have my own database of websites and services that Google likes and doesn’t consider as spammy or unnatural. In a backlinking campaigns I use a diversity of social media, bookmarking, articles, press releases, and directories that include only real websites with good SEO metrics, traffic and Google trust. I don’t use abused blog comments (1000 links on one page), abandoned websites spammed with links, hidden backlinks, redirects, automation software and other Black/Gray SEO techniques, also I don’t use spun/low-quality content as Google will easily detect such submissions and it can put your website at risk.

I only use white hat SEO Techniques that comply with Google Webmaster Guidelines.
