Is Paying for Traditional SEO Worth it
Been Promised by Your SEO Company of Blue Skies and Rainbows Only to Get a Rank Report showing the First Position for “(Your Business Category) that is licensed & insured and gives their services away for FREE”
I know. That was a little bit of an over exaggeration, but I used to work for a large Media/SEO company and they would focus on “long tailed” keywords that nobody EVER searched for or it is was a searched term it was the LEAST PROFITABLE service or product they provided. To make it worse, as I’m sure you may have noticed, all the local search engines started taking over in the results to give the “little guys” less of an opportunity to show up on the “1st Page of Google.” Everybody and their dog will call and promise the “1st page of Google” but they never accomplish it or they put you on YP.com, SuperPages.com, Thumbtack, Porch or some other “get me the lowest” price search engine. As I’m sure you are aware Google is always changing up their algorithm for organic rankings, and it has made it harder and more expensive for small businesses (as well as SEO’s) to show up when people are doing the most profitable searches.
Why Not Focus on Google My Business as Much as We Do Facebook?
That is a question we asked ourselves as the cost for Facebook advertising continued to rise in terms of Return on Advertising Spend (ROAS). I’m not saying you shouldn’t be spending money on Facebook. What I am saying is you should be smart with your advertising dollars on Facebook and look at what you can do in addition to any advertising you are doing that will get you higher ROAS. Ok, back to the topic question. As I had noticed for years that small businesses had a better opportunity to show up at the top of Google in the organic “maps” section, I wanted to make this my focus as helping small and medium size business owners is something I care highly about. From there my team and I started documenting what we were doing in the different profiles and monitoring results. I also noticed there were times that I couldn’t understand why a certain business what showing up and another wasn’t. Have you seen and thought that to yourself as well? Anyway, I’m fortunate to be connected to some of the best SEO‘s in the world in some MasterMind groups, and they alway had some tricks or things they would do to make those types of listings show up without anyone noticing or understanding.
