Is 1-2K per month for SEO really expensive?

I know that many Australian’s cannot possibly understand that it is actually (yet!) very cheap to do SEO  on Google.com.au. Once you are number 1 for your keyword. The high unique traffic per day will justify that and I know that’s what the current number 1’s are getting for most popular industries.

In real life you can’t do anything for 20K and also be the #1 in anything, but online you can! It’s a fact!

This is what I do daily and for example my latest client is for “beauty supplies” number 1 and paying me $2K per month, ask him how “cheap” the monthly “rent” (SEO) is for being on the virtual “Sydney, Queen Street” with 90% of all the beauty supplies industry traffic online.

Remember on the internet there is no “fair game” like in real life. In real life you can also succeed in a medium shopping mall for 25% of the rent “queen street” would cost you, but online there is either “Queen Street” or total darkness on some far away village.

It’s called the google golden triangle. Only the top 4 get everything. The rest get nothing.

google golden triangle

 

here read a little more about it in hundreds of studies:
www.google.com.au/search?q=google+golden+triangle

Let me know if you want t trial period and I will get you to page 1 in 3 months and you pay me only setup + 1 month and don’t pay me till you are on page 1 and then pay me backwards and continuously after.

I really think you don’t trust that this hot “red area” above is real. These are hundreds of clicks per day.

18K per year for me to guarantee you to being there is nothing, trust me! I have to build over 20000 links to your site and maintain them alive on super high ranking websites. For less than 1 dollar per link…think about it for a minute. You are paying more for any employee and the employee will not get you 100 new pairs of eyes (unique visitors) PLUS 5- 10 new paying customers per day. And neither will any “offline” marketing be able to deliver targeted traffic to your business for so cheap.

Googlebot hungry for “Spider Food” on your web pages

if I was your SEO consultant, I wouldn’t be happy with your choice of design due to the lack of “spider food” as I call it to satisfy or “feed” googlebot and co with headers  (h1 and h2) and links, some bold text and some “body” content area as text (doesn’t have to be a book page, but 300-500 words spread out on the page is a good idea, especially on the homepage. The biggies can afford to not care about “spider food” and just blast SEO fro mother areas with their money. But for you it will make your SEO later on much harder and more expensive to convince google that you are what you say you are. Google can’t read images. Yes i know about the image “alt-tags” but these are very insignificant tags – unlike “header tags” or even just bold text would get higher relevance than your image alt tags. There are tricks to have a mix of both but that would be already SEO and a different quote. So let’s stick to what we know so far.

It has to be a template for now and later it’s easy enough to customize this template more and more when moving ahead to online marketing and SEO maybe later.

So I’ve come up with one more magento website template being all in image box-like sections and not too much scroll (corporate look).
Bare in mind: ANYTHING U SEE in a template can be changed. All images obviously and colors are just an example so you can ask us to change whatever you don’t like here. but the framework is sealed. So we can’t move main elements around too much, but you can always ask and maybe some are easy.

Web Design and Search Engine Optimization Case Study

Does this sound familiar: I had a web design done about a year ago and now I am learning that there are a lot questions I should have asked my designer. During the design process, SEO was only mentioned in passing, and keywords never came up. Since I’ve been disappointed in the performance of my website, I’ve done a lot of reading and now realize that my site needs help if it is ever going to get a high rank on search engine results pages. I am wondering if I need to redesign my site or if there is some way to take care of SEO now, after the fact, other than some kind of pay per click solution.

You say Facebook can help my business? BUT HOW??

I hear the same quotes over and over again and if this sounds like you, then call me for a free chat and I’ll explani the whole facebook-mania to you in 5 minutes. It’s much easier than you think! Read:

I am wondering about social sites like Facebook and Twitter with regard to web design. I have a Facebook page but rarely visit it. Too busy! Plus, I find them more than a little silly. Everyone says social marketing is a great tool for marketing my products, but I just don’t get it. It seems so time consuming, with little guarantee of anything other than time wasted on my part. I wish there were some way to build the so-called power of social marketing into my website design. Is this same as using SEO to make my website work for me or is it different?

Are Australians really behind in general internet knowledge?

Many Australians aer a little ashamed to admit that they are simply a lot behind when comparing the general Internet knowledge on an international level, so they rather just keep looking away until they don’t have a choice anymore when more and more people and realted companies in every day life keep asking for their website address.

Another quote I hear over and over again in many different versions, but this one is my favorite and represents in my opinion millions of Australians:

“I need to have a web design to attract customers for my business. Everybody says I have to do it, that I’m missing the boat by not being on the Internet. But I’m afraid to take the plunge because I’ve heard so many stories about the money you have to spend to get traffic to the site. It just seems like a bottomless pit of spending with no guarantee of results. Other friends tell me no, it’s just a matter of getting the search engine optimization right, but really, I have no clue what SEO is or how to talk to a designer about it.”

 No charge for a friendly phone call and I promise not to judge you about “not knowing”. It is a national problem.

Website Design draws no Visitors?…time for SEO!

The following quote is another classic I get all the time from people with existing websites. This client has a pretty nice website, and he is really puzzled why on earth is there no traffic!?

 

“I have a site with a beautiful web design but the site doesn’t seem to be bringing in any business. I don’t understand what could have gone wrong. I hired the best website design I could find. The company had dozens of designers and the designs in the company’s portfolio were absolutely stunning. So is mine, as a matter of fact. But I only get a few visitors a month. The amount of business I’ve gotten from the website is almost nil. I feel like I’ve been cheated after spending so much. What has gone wrong?”

 

Well the answer is always going to be the same: If you are not in the top 5, the website is nothing else but an expensive business card! End of story! (google this term and see for yourself: “google golden triangle”)

So, now you have 2 choices:

a) pay for the clients (PPC) using Google adwords and do nothing but buy “air time”. Once your budget runs out you are gone and you have not invested this money in your website overall value in “juice” (will explain later)

b) invest every penny in SEO to get ranking in the top 5 and even if you stop SEO one day your website will have a google pagerank and many backlinks, meaning it will have a value and worth something on website auctions even.

Cheap template web design or custom web design?

If you need help understanding when an off the shelf web design programme makes sense and when it doesn’t you’ve come to the right place. Some offers seem really economical, but how can I be sure they have all the features of a custom-designed site, especially when it comes to SEO issues? Custom designed sites, on the other hand, are invariably quoted as outrageously expensive. Really, who has thousands of dollars to sink into a website when their business is just starting and there is a payroll to meet and all of the other running expenses without much income coming in yet. And yet, somehow I can’t get rid of the feeling that I might be missing something important by going with a designer who offers ready-made solutions, even if they are tailored to my business needs. I’m already running around like crazy getting my business up and running, and dealing with these issues on top of everything else makes my head spin. Would appreciate feedback from anyone w ho has experience with this.

Web design must include on-page SEO

When seeking quotes for web design it is essential to get good advice about Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) from the beginning. Most Web designers will try and exclude SEO in their quotes to ensure themselves an upsale opportunity after the website is completed.

However if you do want to be visible & findable on search engines and you are 100% serious about having an online business, then your website design should always have on-page SE optimisations added on such as:

-sitemap.xml
-sitemap.html
-urllist.txt
-robots.txt
-non-www to www redirect (permanent 301 redirect)
-SEF Urls (search engine friendly URL’s)
-Meta Tag optimisation
-H-tag optimisation

-Search Engine submissions
-Rel=”nofollow” to home, account, and legal links

Using A Free Blogging Web Site

For first time bloggers, a free blogging web site is a great way to get started in the blogosphere. Popular blogging web sites like blogger and eponym allow users to set up and host a blog without paying any fees at all. This encourages people to start blogging, because the fact that one of these sites can provide you with all of the tools that you need to get your blog up and running without spending any money means that you have nothing to lose by starting a blog. The fact that it is so easy to find a way to blog for free is one of the reasons why so many people who have never had any other kind of web presence before find themselves drawn to blogging.

The fact that it is so easy to find a way to blog for free is one of the reasons why so many people who have never had any other kind of web presence before find themselves drawn to blogging.

By signing up with a free blogging web site, you may find it easier to get listed in search engines that you would if you were starting your own blog from scratch. For example, google runs the free blog hosting site blogspot and crawls its pages very often looking for updates, so if you have your site hosted by blogspot you are almost guaranteed to be listed on google’s blog search engine. This easy access to search engines can take some of the work out of promoting your blog, and can help you gain a following with a minimum of marketing effort.

If your blog attracts a large readership, you may want to consider moving your site. Many people feel that being hosted by a free blogging web site gives a blog a kind of amateur flavor that is fine for a new member of the blogosphere, but is not appropriate for a high-profile blog. Having your own domain can help you make your blog feel professional, and finding a company that will host your domain is not difficult or expensive. Once your blog takes off, you will probably be able to sell enough advertising space to be able to afford to buy a domain and pay for a hosting package, and still have money left over. However, it does not make sense in most cases to invest in these glossy luxuries before you have a sizable readership.

Starting your blog on a free blogging web site is a great way to build a following before you spend any money on your blog. If and when your blog becomes popular and you are ready to take the next step and purchase your own domain, your readers will follow you to your new home. The fact that it is possible to use a free blog host like blogspost, blogger, or eponym as a kind of incubator for your blog is great news for bloggers everywhere.
