Thread: What Helps You Rank Higher In Google?

    Hi Owen. It’s great to hear your motivation re starting a new business. However re SEO, if there was a straight answer to what contributes to high rankings, everyone would be doing it – and ranking would be harder than ever. There are so many factors that play a part including how UX-centred your web design is, how often it’s updated, where else it’s featured on the web, how well the content is written, how relevant keywords and phrases are used in the HTML code, whether you have alt text for all your images and transcripts for your videos… the list goes on. Every SEO company you consult will have different opinions and Google’s algorithms are always changing. I’d suggest doing your due diligence and learning as much as you can independently so that at least when working with “SEO professionals” you understand what they’re doing (and provide direction if/when needed on what strategies you might prefer). Good luck!

    If you need SEO expect to pay 500 a month or more. The web dev/ marketing company I use to do sales for charged 650 a month for basic services.

    Do you have any experience in SEO at all? Cause quite frankly, if you don't know what you're doing then you can pay thousands for all of the tools but having them doesn't boost rankings at all.. otherwise every other seo company would invest in every shiny new tool on the market. What is your experience in SEO, if any?

    It starts with good keyword research and good quality content. If your content is engaging then it will get shared through social mediums thus giving you traffic to your site and hopefully sales..

    I think you are approaching this wrong.

    I do this full time for a living btw. SEO is not a panacea. It is just one tactic that you can use to generate prospects and sales. Same with AdWords or BingAds. These require scale to really work as well. Same goes for using Facebook ads, LinkedIN ads, paid pins in Instgram, etc.

    Focus on your brand. Your brand promise. What you will do differently and why people should care. Talk about the problem you solve. Get that down on paper. Then you can start looking at the sitemap and needs of your website. That site is your main focus. It's your window to the world!

    You can't rank a shitty website with no content. And driving paid traffic to said site will get you nothing either. Make sure it's great. Make sure it pops. Make sure it lets your target customer know they have found a great solution.

    The other stuff comes when you have money and time to dedicate.

    Don't waste your time with $10/mo services. You'll get much better results from building your own content campaign for a little more. SEO runs on quality, relevant and unique content.

    1) Create an account with Writers Access and order a new blog each week for $50 a blog ($200/mo).

    2) Hire a social marketing expert on Upwork (good ones can range from $30 - $50/hr) and should only take them 2 hours max each week to create, write and post.

    3) Next, hire an email marketing manager to write, load and send your emails. Each one should build on your blog / social posts and lead a flash sale at the end of the month. Again, a good freelancer will charge $30/hr and take 2 hours a week. Mailchimp CRM is free to use and will work well enough to build a small list.

    4) Have a graphic designer to create a lead magnet for you. This should only cost you a one time fee of $100.


    So for $320/mo you've created a complete content marketing campaign that will work much better than the $10/mo option.

    I have to disagree with all of this. No one for $50 a week or $30hr/2 hours can create a marketing plan for you. All they can do is write basic articles and flood your blog and social media with bloat content.

    It's not a real plan nor does it target your audience according to your branding and marketing. I'm a firm believer that you should be in charge of your own content and marketing. That means you first need to learn what that is. Good marketing is not something that can be outsourced for a few hundred dollars nor can you delegate marketing tasks if you haven't created any kind of foundation of what that marketing is.

    Just tossing content around, stuffed with keywords is old thinking that stopped working years ago.

    JMO of course.
