    For 99-300 a month here's what most people would get...

    • Weekly/Montly SEO report
    • Suggestions or Edits for meta descriptions
    • Suggestions or edits for Title Tags
    • For higher priced teirs, content review
    • Higher Tiers, maybe a little content creation (blog articles)
    • Suggestions on new keyword opportunities
    • Suggestions with market opportunities
    • I'm sure there's others but these are the most common

    Using a reputable SEO company would by far be the better choice.

    Best to get a consultancy meeting with an SEO company and find out exactly what they can do for your own start up and for how much, do this with many companies and get a general feel of how far $99-300 will get you.

    To answer your original question ("What helps you rank..."), check out this infographic from Moz. TL;DR: the first two factors are backlinks, the next is content and keywords.

    But you can't get back links without good design and content. Self linking and manual link manipulation doesn't carry much weight anymore. Chicken/Egg scenario except in this instance quality of content comes first.

    You should have targeted content on your site before building backlinks. However, you totally can build links without good content on your site. Guest posting, citations, social signals are all weighted highly in organic and can happen with a crappy design website.

    Can? Yes. Should? No.

    I have to disagree with the "weighted highly" part. That used to be the case 5 years ago when you could self manipulate your page rank, but Google has gotten much better since then and they keep repeatedly telling us that the old days are gone.


    Yes, you can totally throw some junk together and link bait your way to a fair amount of ad clicks. But that is a very short lived strategy. Today, there is no substitute for good content. You're not going to trick Google into placing you well in the SERP's.

    Honestly, it's much easier and less time consuming to just create something great than to create crap and work twice as hard trying to trick Google into thinking that it's great.

    Quotes aren't the place to express creative liberty, or else they wouldn't be called quotes. They're quotes because someone said them. So that's actually not an improvement because it's not what she said.

    But even without the accuracy problems, it's got serious diction and English language issues.
    In this case an apostrophe "s" isn't a substitution for the word "is". It's to show possession of a singular noun or plurals.
    You can use apostrophe "s" as a substitution for "is" or "has" , just not in this case.

    Also "ounce" is singular, so you wouldn't pluralize the subject.
    The plural of "performance" is "performances" not "performance's".

    So in this instance "is" comes before "worth", and "way" is in there for no reason because the point has already been made. If you wanted to express the urgency or greater amount , "far" would be a much better word to use.

    But again, none of that is the actual quote.

    Study SEO. Its actually easier these days than back in the old days when everyone was trying to fool google. That doesn't mean you can't use a SEO firm, but you will at least know how to manage them.
