Is your SEO hummingbird, penguin, panda, pigeon penalty proof ?
Of course yes, we know even the latest update called ‘Rank brain’. Our experts are up to date with all Google algorithm updates. We only use true white hat content marketing strategies to improve your website visibility.
Unless you also hire another SEO at the time we are working for you, then we cannot guarantee if anything happens to your web property due to other SEO expert / firm.
We are mentioning it here because we have seen some business owners hiring multiple SEO companies for the same site and same targeted keyword If you have any such illusion that multiple companies rank you quickly, we suggest you remove it from your thoughts.
Whether you work with us or any other SEO company, always work with one at a time, working with multiple companies will only result in damage to your business.
Do you guarantee top 10 spots for my targeted keyword ?
The straight answer is No, Google warns business owners against working with SEO companies who guarantee top 10 rankings, first-page guarantee rank etc., And with the recent rank brain algorithm update, now ranking is very dynamic. To make you understand, Google updates its algorithm more than 1000 times in a year.
They have individual code names like the panda, hummingbird etc., some updates go unnoticed and are not public. Earlier rank changes were noticed seasonal / every 3 months / 6 months or some time period.
Now with the latest algorithm it’s real-time, so now no one can promise top rank guarantee. If any company tells you that they can rank your keywords in the top in x days for $xyz, stay away from them.
While you might ask, if I cannot reach the top spot what is the use of SEO?
SEO is an asset, it’s not a liability. We invest in assets like land, apartments and real estate. To enjoy long-term returns, just like a tree. SEO is like a seed, you plant it, water it, manure it, protect it and make it grow from plant to tree.

The top ranking is not impossible, we have clients whom we have ranked on Google first page and ranked hundreds of keywords in various spots. As they have trusted us and helped us continue working on their web properties as per the estimated period.

Why I am not seeing much traffic in my Google Analytics ?
There could be several possibilities for this issue:
a) Your Google Analytic might have de-linked with your website / it is not receiving any data due to technical issues.
b) You have a new website and SEO is just started, if this is the case. Don’t worry.
c) You can check the acquisitions section in Google analytics section which will show the organic traffic.
If you have any other problems, due to which you are not seeing traffic. Please notify your project manager immediately on Project management system. They will fix any issues found.
Can I get targeted traffic with SEO ?
It depends on, how many keywords / key phrases for which your website is ranking for on major search engines. And how many users are searching for the keyword monthly in the search engine?
You have a key phrase called “blue widgets” for which the search volume is let’s say 100 users in last month in the USA.
And we have ranked you in top spots in 3 months and now the “blue widgets” have less search volume say 10 users per month are searching.
Yes we have seen such cases, and this completely normal and we don’t know exactly / predict traffic upfront. You might have heard about Google Trends which shows search queries on various industries, countries, and demographics to public.
If you notice that the keywords do not remain to have same searched volume. People search in different ways, or sometimes they might go in a completely different method, say they will directly search for amazon.
They will go there and purchase their product from amazon, this means user have decided where he wants to purchase. So targeted traffic is not assured.
We can assure that more long tail keywords your website ranks for will improve organic traffic over time.
Can I rank on multiple search engines on top spots ?
It’s possible, but with Google, we can target either worldwide / Geo (country level) visitors. That means you got two options
(b) Google Country level targeting. You have to choose only option among these.
So if you are expecting traffic from different countries while your target is set to google.com, it will not work. Similarly, if you have targeted for India (let’s assume) don’t expect more organic traffic from other countries.
If you want to target multiple nations in full-fledged way. You need international SEO.
Which needs you to either develop multiple country variations for your website and using specific landing pages for each country or creating separate websites for each country in Geo-specific domains and optimising them. These are the two solutions.
If you have any questions on international SEO talk to us today.
My friends website is ranking faster than mine, why ?
Good questions, do you know SEO ranking depends on more than a thousand factors and increasing every day. The most important being domain authority and age.
It’s always better to compare your past and present state of the website, don’t compare your website with others and worry.
If you are working with us, just be happy. Because our SEO works and we have proven this multiple times.
I am not getting any business from SEO, Should I stop now ?
SEO is not about sales / leads / sign-ups. They are important for a business we understand that, but SEO is not lead generation. This is all about generating organic traffic, gaining domain authority and ranking for key phrases.
SEO will eventually lead to more inquiries / sales / sign ups. You might wonder, even Google Ads does not bring sales for your business which are paid and needs continuously crediting your account.
Getting business and converting your traffic into customers needs complete Internet Marketing which will use more channels and dedicated lead capture techniques.
SEO alone could not bring your sales / business. This is just one method of digital marketing that you are investing for your future.
You cannot pay for ads whole life if we are right. Someday you might think that you have missed SEO, so invest on SEO right in the beginning. You will have strong foundation and future in search engines.
We have customers who got more inquires via organic search than paid search advertising and other mediums. Search Engine Optimization is all about patience, hope and continuing the efforts.
How is SEO different from SEM?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and SEM stands for Search Engine Marketing.
SEO is a process in which an expert who knows the webmaster rules and regulations tune your website to get found on organic search results.
This will also include keyword / key phrases optimization, which will make your website shown to visitors on optimized search engine for the input query.
In SEM you will purchase pay per click or pay per million or pay per action based advertisements from search engine companies.
Then you will set up campaigns and the companies will charge per clicks / impressions / call to actions based on campaign type.
While SEO will rank your website in the long term which will result in free traffic from search, SEM is a paid instrument.
As soon as your credits are finished your Google / Bing ads will stop showing on search engines.
That is the main reason why everyone invests on SEO to get free organic traffic and keyword rankings, for long term business ROI
I already do PPC, do I need to do SEO? What’s the difference?
Yes, PPC is a SEM technique to get targeted traffic. And SEO is an organic traffic generation method by optimizing your website / e-commerce store for the major phrases and keywords.
While PPC adverts will be shown only as long as you pay the search engine company and run campaigns.
SEO will be free and you don’t need to pay for clicks, you will just invest on packages which our experts utilizes and optimize your website.
To make it easy for you to understand, PPC is like renting a flat, SEO is like having own house. So I think, now you know the big difference.
In rented house, owner will kick you out once you stop paying them and you never own it. While building own house costs more money and efforts but at the end of the day, you own it and you get an asset. SEO is like own house.
If you consider ROI in long term, SEO is a winner obviously, as you do not need to pay for every click.
As a client, what’s in my efficient monthly report?
Yes, our monthly report consists of the following:
Your website SEO previous state, current state.
Organic traffic received in the last 30 days,
Key phrases and keywords which started ranking,
Keywords which showed improvements.

Project Managers remarks or comments and suggestions and much more depending on the package you have opted for your website optimization.
What is black hat SEO? And what is white hat SEO?
Black hat SEO is a term which is used to mention that the techniques used are unethical and deceiving methods.
In black hat techniques, the people executing it may rank a website on a keyword for a short period that is not related to the sites content / products / services in any way.
This is a way of tricking the search engine in an unethical method, which will eventually get tracked by search algorithms.
Getting SEO is good, but if you choose someone who does black hat SEO on your site. Then you cannot regret the mistake, as most black hat SEO techniques will make your website get flagged by Google spam control algorithms.
Some of the most popular black hat techniques are:
Invisible Text (embedded into website pages)
Spam comments and links
Private blog networks
Link Farms, Link Wheels or Link Networks
Rich Snippet Markup Spam
Automated Queries to Google
Creating pages, subdomains, or domains with duplicate content
Pages with malicious behaviour, such as phishing, viruses, trojans, and other malware
Bait-and-Switch or Page Swapping
Black hat SEO can get your website banned from Google, which is bad. White SEO techniques are methods that pass Google webmaster Guidelines.
You might notice most SEO companies which are offering low price packages are mostly using automated link building tools and spammy techniques.
Black hat work will only do harm than good, we suggest you be aware of whom you are choosing for your SEO.
Do you know, most of these SEO people do not know anything, they will just purchase some tools and sell services?
Marketplaces like Fiverr, SEO clerks, blackhat world and some other forums and websites blast thousands of links which add no value to your website.
On top of that, you again have to get them detoxed once you get a spam / algorithm penalty.
Choose an SEO company that does white hat SEO, which is ethical. Sure you might pay more but it is worth what you paid for, you will get complete value for the investment.
How do you find the best keywords for my business?

How do backlinks affect my ranking?
Backlinks are the references that will make the domain gain trust and authority over time. They are like testimonials, in white hat SEO we focus on natural link building methods with more content marketing. This will offer more value than other link building techniques.

We know how to gain natural links that will provide the best value over time.
Why do I need SEO services?
SEO services are offered by experts who are watching everything from years. Unlike programming or designing subjects, SEO is not taught in colleges or schools.
Even if you learn somewhere in a school, you will be a master only when you work on real time projects.
We have been working on SEO from last 5 years, we know every vertical of this subject. We are still learning every day as SEO is a constantly updating. Hence, we keep ourselves updated on latest happenings.
Most important thing is If you do not optimize your website for search engines, you will not get any business from organic search and traffic. And no one got time to master this complex subject in short time.
If you learn SEO it’s good, but mastering it takes up too much time and it’s not worth. Instead of doing SEO yourself, leave it to us (experts) who will do the best work.

Landing page means a URL which takes the user to a web page on your domain after he clicks the search result.Landing page optimization is an important process to make your website improve its search visibility.
Can’t I just use SEO plugins for my website?
SEO plugins improve only programming part of the site so that it will become SEO friendly. They will not do any crucial things that are essential for making your website tuned for search engines.
SEO plugins will help an expert and your site perform much better, but they cannot replace an SEO expert who does the real work.
Do domain extensions (top level domains like .com, co.uk) matter?
From SEO point of view yes they do. Even after so many new top level domain extensions are released every year, .coms still play a significant role.
Most people only know .com, .net, .org. Extensions and geo-specific TLDs like co.uk, co.in. etc.,
From search engine view .com will give flexibility to target your audience for worldwide (Google.com) or National / Country level. While geo specificTLDs do not have such options. This is a major difference.
How long does it take to get indexed by Google?
There is no set time for Google to index your website, usually it takes from 4 days to 4 weeks time. If there are any technical / content duplication issues Google might index only some pages or skip all pages.
This is the reason why we tell our clients to not use thin content / duplicate content. It is important that you follow our expert recommendations to help your website marketing work for you.
Does SEO Mean optimization for search engines spiders, not humans?
SEO is a process which helps search bots easy to crawl and index your website. During 1998-2003 really SEO was done only for web spiders, now the game has changed.
Now user experience, valuable content and many more factors have come in place. So now it is not just for web spiders. It is an overall best possible experience that you will give to a user when he lands on your website.
Can search engines index dynamic sites with ? and = (query strings) in the URL?
While it totally depends on how Google will analyse your web page, URLs that have too many query strings are usually skipped. Its is very important to have a good URL structure.
Although bots can now read dynamically generated content, the probability to get indexed depends honestly on how valuable content it is offering and is it readable by a bot.
As long as URL structure is right, and a bot is able to access the page, whether it is a static or dynamic website, the pages will get indexed.
Can I change the font size of my header tags (H1, H2) without getting into trouble?
Yes, you have to ask the developer to modify the CSS files as per your font size requirements and you are ready to go.

No, but you have to check the search console and project manager to find if your site has an issue. If you see your website is not able to get indexed even after fixing everything.
What should I do about competitors who spam the search engines?
You don’t need to bother; Google web spam team will take care of them. Focus on your business.
If I have an all graphical page, where can I place keyword phrases for the search engines?
When you have more graphics than content, you have to build authority and trust from other websites / blogs and leading content hubs. This is the only way you can make your website improve its visibility. If you don’t want to add any text to page, you have only a few options left
a) Page Title
b) Meta Description
c) Keywords (normally we do not recommend, but in this case, you must use) keep them short and highly relevant, don’t spam / stuff.
d) Image alt tag (so that you can get traffic from image search engines).
Do I need to make sure my files are not buried deeply in multiple directories on my server?
It depends on how many levels deep you have stored data. Usually, we will suggest website structure once we do an audit.
To improve site crawl ability and indexation, you will be informed if necessary to do any changes.
Should I create a blog for SEO purposes?
Blog is excellent, if you could maintain it properly, we do both on-site and off-site blogging to improve your website authority.
While we prefer on-site blogging, it depends on your business / niche, content management system and other factors. We will inform you when you are working with us.
Can SEO companies have individual relationships with the search engines like some of them claim?
This is a myth, search engines are very transparent. They are behind providing the best possible experience to people who use their products like search, maps, images, videos, etc.,
So it’s clear they will not rank your website if you know someone in Google / Bing. This is just a pure myth and maybe you might have read in some websites which deceive people and make money, doing false claims.

What is the difference between indexing and crawling?
If a page is indexed, this means your web page has valuable content that will be useful to search engine users. And an indexed page will get found on search engines for keywords / key phrases quickly.
Crawling is a process where the search engine bot like Google bot / MSN bot will visit a page and leaves, crawling does not guarantee to index.
This is essential for getting indexed, if a bot is unable to crawl your web pages / site, then your web property might have some issues. Indexing will depend on crawling, but crawling is not equal to indexing.
How can I see what pages are indexed?
You cannot know which pages are indexed directly from search console (Google webmaster tools). However, you can use a query in Google search to find out what pages of your website / domain are indexed.
Example: site:rankmyhub.com replace our domain name with your own domain to see your indexed pages list.
