I want to start SEO campaign for my website today! How do you work and what is the procedure?

After you have read our proposal, please contact us at info@iknowseo.ca or +1 (647) 495-9656 and let us know if you have any question or require any revisions/keywords changes/price adjustments. If you agree to the price and our services proposed, you will need to provide us with your full name, billing address and contact information for our billing department to send you an invoice. You can pay the invoice with your PayPal account or with any major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diner’s Club and others). Once the invoice is paid, we will create you profile and start generation of content for submissions that we will start after 1-2 weeks of your confirmed payment. Backlinks and ranking reports area provided monthly and also can be available at request.

How long do I need to use SEO services? Can I stop paying or get a discount after I rank top 10?

You only need to use our SEO services for as long as you want to stay on the first page of Google. Once we rank your website top 10, it will became harder and harder to improve ranking further as all your competitors run their own SEO campaigns and we will need to keep the same volume of submissions all the time to be able to outrank them. For this reason, the SEO campaign cannot be discounted or stopped if you want to keep the momentum going. But the idea of SEO is once you are on the top 3 you can receive enough requests that they will easily cover the price of ongoing SEO campaign.


Will your packages work for our e-commerce/real estate/restaurant/roofing website?

Absolutely! Our services are a perfect fit for any type of business, keywords, geographical area, and type of optimization (global/local). Moreover we know exactly what SEO work needs to be done to rank your website on the first page of Google! Our company has worked on a variety of projects starting from local flower shops, to eCommerce websites (worldwide), we have all the needed experience to rank your website.


Another SEO company has packages with larger amount of links. Is it something special about your backlinks?

In the post Google Penguin and Panda era, more attention needs to be given to the quality of links rather than the quantity. One link to your site coming from a quality article on a reputable site that we post your link to could improve your ranking better than 1000 low quality links coming from unknown or bad neighbourhoods. We use only links and domains that that proved their effectiveness in improving our clients rank. Our policy is to offer performance based services that will improve your ranking, not just selling you on a number of backlinks or hours of work like other companies do.

I’m new to SEO and don’t know how does it work and just want traffic/visitors/leads/help with keywords/advice.

We can help with that too! We can explain and advise on how SEO can help your business to gain new prospects, estimate traffic improvements and calls. We are a full cycle SEO company and we can help you with all your internet marketing needs (SEO, PPC, Google Maps, SEO web design and maintenance).

Mail to  info@iknowseo.ca or +1 (647) 495-9656


There are so many SEO companies offering almost the same packages and services. How are you different?

Our policy is to be honest and transparent to our potential and existing clients right from the start. Our goal is not just sell you a number of backlinks, but to optimize related keywords with a good amount of search traffic and improve your ranking from being outside of top 100 to top 10 (first page) of Google. Other companies will only mention “recommended period – 6 month”, “12 years in business”, “we helped thousands of companies”, “improve your ranking”, “get tons of traffic”, “be on top/front of Google” but will all that actually help your website reach the first page of Google?

90% of our clients keywords rank top 10 within 3-5 months, some low completive keywords rank first page of Google even faster – within 1-2 months! We give a personal analysis and advice to every client and closely monitor their SEO campaigns, because your success is our success!


Can you rank my website top 10 faster (1-2 months) if we increase the budget?

Due to recent Google algorithm updates, the minimum safeties period of time to rank your website from top 100 to top 10 is 3-4 months. If we increase the number of submissions it might get Google attention (not the good kind either!) and your website can be tagged by Google’s penalty filters that will send your website to the 20th page of search results and you will lose all all the exposure you’ve built. If you need immediate results, we can help to set up a Google Ad words Pay-Per-Click campaign and you can start getting paid traffic from Google the same day. But unlike the organic SEO, PPC can be very expensive.

How long does it take to start seeing results in your SEO services?

Every website will have different ranking improvements. If the keywords you are trying to rank for are very popular and competitive (eg. real estate, lawyers, legal, ecommerce etc), the results will take longer. Some clients have even seen first page rankings within the first 30 days (for low competitive keywords). Also if your website has been penalized by Google (please notify us prior to using our services) it might take additional time to recover (estimated 2-3 months).  In general, our client’s ranking improvements often look like this:

Keyword Ranking after 1st month Ranking after 2nd month Ranking after 3rd month Ranking after 4th month
keyword1 Not in top 100 Not in top 100 42 9
keyword2 Not in top 100 65 21 5
keyword3 Not in top 100 Not in top 100 63 10
keyword4 Not in top 100 89 55 4
keyword5 Not in top 100 Not in top 100 12 3

We will give you an estimate based on our experience within the first two months after start you SEO campaign after we see how Google reacts to your site and our optimization, but it is never an exact numbers due to the nature of search algorithms.

Can you get me rank top 1/top 3/top 5 ?

Absolutely! After your website ranks top 10 for selected keywords, within next 1-3 months it will continue to improve its ranking until it hits the top 1-5 spot. The timeline will also depend on your website performance, Google authority rank, and other factors and can be predicted more accurately after 2-3 months from start of SEO packages subscription.


Will you optimize my website for Bing! and Yahoo as well?

Yes! Our work will take effect in all search engines like Google, Bing! and Yahoo. Note that Bing and Yahoo is normally much slower than Google in terms of crawling changes, backlinks and improve your ranking. For some websites, it can take additional 2-5 month to see results in Bing.


My website has been previously (or currently) penalized/blacklisted/deindexed by Google. Can you help in this matter?

Yes! Our team has experience in recovering websites from different sort of penalties like duplicate content, viruses, poor navigation, poor meta tag setup, aggressive and harmful backlinks (off-site) campaign and others issues. Before making a payment, it is mandatory to let us know if your website has been previously panelized by Google or has used Black Hat SEO techniques. Fail in providing such details can void our ranking and our financial guaranty. Aside from regular SEO submissions, we will work on fixing your website status in Google with no additional charge. Note that for blacklisted domains, it could take an additional 1-3 months to rank top 10.

What kind of links do you use in your SEO services? Do you practice Black Hat SEO techniques?

We have our own database of website and services that Google likes and does not consider as link farms. In our backlinks camping, we use a diversity of social media, articles, press releases, and directories. To make our campaign look natural, we also use some of PR0 links as well as no-follow links because Google will find out that you trying to trick the system by creating only High PR links. We don’t link to your site directly from public blog comments as they usually abused by other webmasters (1000 links on one page), also we don’t spin articles as Google will easily detects such activity and might penalize your website. We use only White Hat SEO Techniques with a variety of link quality Google Page Rank.



What’s your cancellation policy on SEO packages subscription? Do you have any additional fees?
You can cancel or pause your campaign easily at anytime. There is no cancellation fee and all our links a permanent so you will not lose any ranking instantly. Although, overtime your website ranking will gradually decrease in search engine result pages as you competitors work on their own campaigns and gradually, they will outrank your site if you do not continuously optimize it. We do not have any additional setup/cancellation/modification/recovering fees. You can always change your website per our requirements by yourself as well (rewrite content, change title tag and etc.). If you are unable to, we can handle changes at an additional charge to assist.
