About Search Engine Marketing...

Search engine optimization (SEO) is a blend of various SEO techniques, practical search engine experience, knowledge of information retrieval search engine algorithms and common sense to rank a web site for keywords and key phrases chosen in top results of search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN. Search engines provide most of the traffic to most websites. Top placement in search engines makes searchers find the information they are looking for in the search engines to find your website. Top placement in search engines is important for any business even if its not selling product or service as people trust a brand that ranks well in search engines.

How to Maximize ROI on Search Engine Optimization? Some SEO companies trick clients into believing that by making minor modifications to your website will provide higher rank in search engines, some SEO companies pick up the easiest words available and after ranking them on those keywords do not bother to check to see if the SEO campaign added to the clients bottom line. Some open your home page and change the meta data, title and description to include your keywords and consider search optimization on the website complete. This happens because there is a swarm of websites on the internet that want to rank and get caught by the wrong SEO companies, once your money is gone its gone the SEO specialist will find more clients. To Maximize your ROI (Return on Investment) its imperative to know what do you want from your campaign and then ask your optimization company how they are going to achieve this. If they do not give a clear answer you may need to find another Search Engine Optimization firm.  Ignorance and half-knowledge is why many companies get their websites banned and removed from search engines, not because they knowingly tried to get banned. An SEO Professional should know how algorithms function. The SEO Consultant should know how to optimize a website for keywords that actually make any business sense. An SEO guru should know how to protect rankings from search engine algorithm changes. Its easy to stuff a web page with mindless keywords all over. Thats not SEO. Thats the recipe for how to get banned in search engines.

What does the Search engine optimization process involve? There are a host of factors involved in professional SEO/SEP which need to be modified and monitored over time to optimize. As you might know optimization is an investment and is a gradual process.  It is not a over night process.  Search Engine Optimization by very nature involves modifications based on feedback you receive over time and hence its takes time and effort. A typical search engine optimization campaign is completed in 3 months after which the results are monitored and we initiate steps to make sure the ranking continues to increase. Although traffic usually increases after just one month as smaller search engine start ranking our website faster. The larger search engines namely Google, Msn and Yahoo take 1 month to 6 months to start ranking websites.  We can speed up this process by auto-submitting your sitemap to Google on a daily basis to ask them to crawl the site for new content.
