    Default What Helps You Rank Higher In Google?

    I'm going to be starting yet another startup soon. Yes, I know what you've been saying for months now Harold and yes, I am actively doing that, I'm almost certified in business administration, personal finance, and marketing. School does wonders, heh, who knew?

    And yes, this does have a little teeny-tiny bit of funding from my part time job (currently making $10 an hour working 20-30 hours a week), which will be going towards hiring developers (probably hourly), advertising across Google Adwords, etc.

    But my question is: what gets websites to rank so high, even when they're only a few years old? What are the secrets? Should I pay for managed services like Attracta?

    Long term, and active marketing all over the internet including content marketing, press, social media (Google Plus and location info), video, business profiles, building inbound links by being a source of information, advertising, and of course on site SEO that targets your market correctly, and having a well designed, organized, mobile friendly website.

    It's a marathon that includes everything.

    So if I pay $10 a month for Attracta SEO, how much do you think that would help my rankings if you google something that doesn't include my site name like when you search 'jobs' Indeed.com pops up?

    I can't picture anyone delivering something worthwhile for 10 bucks a month.

    IMO, just put a match on that $10 and watch it burn. Or put it to good use and get something like Google Play Music or HBO.

    Seriously, how much SEO (or anything) would YOU do for $10 mo.?

    That's true. What would the $99 - $300 packages do?

    Couldn't tell you. I don't know anything about one "SEO" company from another. They all make convincing sounding promises.
    You'll have to talk to them and ask them what you're getting for your money and determine if it's worth paying them for it.
