What is SEO and How Does it Work?

SEO (search engine optimization) is the process in getting your business to show up on Google when customers search for your business name and your targeted keywords.

Trying to do your own SEO is the equivalent of reading a few articles in “Popular Mechanics” and then trying to repair your car yourself or taking it to the guy advertising on “Craigs List“.  This won’t end well.

SEO is a long term advertising strategy that produces massively if done properly. SEO has replaced the “Yellow Pages” and is the way things are done today.  Before the internet age when Google came on the scene and transformed the way we search for things, the way everyone did it was the Yellow Pages, back then the way to get high rankings in the Yellow Pages was to name your business something like AAA Towing to get to the top of the list. Now it’s done thru Google’s ever changing algorithms on both your website and Google Maps which we are expert at.

The Yellow Pages start out at around $300 per month for single line text ads on up to $2000 a month and then some for full page advertisements!  Believe it or not a lot of business’s are still going this route when everyone knows if your looking for something you just “Google it” on your computer or most likely on your phone.

There’s a lot of internet companies that troll thru the Internet sending out mass emails with “To Good To Be True” offers, promising 1st page rankings with tons of keywords. Dont drink the koolaid  The fact is if they were really able to pull off what they promise they would optimize their own website instead of spending all day soliciting unsuspecting business’s on-line with their empty promises!

We rank at the top for our targeted keywords such as “Bakersfield SEO” and Paris SEO Company. These are just 2 examples. Another amazing result for our long time client “Eagle Trucking” is “Heavy equipment moving Bakersfield

SEO TIP

If your website page is ranking on the 1st page of Google and you decide to change the URL name you will lose your placement. We did a test on this and lost our 1st page ranking (#5 position) for “New York city SEO company“. You will see that we are not on the 1st page, check back in 2 days and our ranking should reappear. We have since changed it back today and reindexed it to Google in the search console so stay tuned to this post to see our ranking. We are SEO experts and look forward to helping clients with their Google placement.

UPDATE
We have since restored our ranking and are now 1st page on Google for these 2 keywords >

Can I Rank My Website In A Big City on Google?

Today is Nov. 4, 2018

 This is a commonly asked question, so we have decided to do a test. New York City has over 8 million people! We have bought a new domain > newyorkcityhandyman.net  and we will be attempting to optimize it for these 3 keywords, “New York City Handyman”, “New York Handyman Services” and “New York City Handyman Service”. So far all 3 are on page 5 respectfully, not bad for a major market with tremendous competition! Once we get this to the first page we will be offering the website as a rental for New York City handymen. We are optimistic that we can accomplish this feat because we have already accomplished this before with our domain >   newyorkcitygardner.com which ranks #1 for “New York city gardener“. This took us 7 months to achieve this ranking.

Every business category in every city is different as SEO (search engine optimization) results are dependent on many factors including the SEO on your competitions websites and whether it has been done properly. There are 2 kinds of SEO, black hat SEO which yields quick results but gets flagged and penalized by Google and will ruin a sites ranking, and white hat SEO, which is how we do it, in accordance with Google’s guidelines.

So far after 2 weeks we have been unsuccessful in getting our site to rank for our targeted keywords. Most SEO companies would give up at this point but because of our extensive experience and knowledge in search engine optimization we are just getting started.

We have added https to our domain to strengthen the authority so this should help. We have also added extensive images and optimized them and also added a tremendous amount of content to compliment our website and images, and we have cleaned up a lot of errors that we found which were conflicting with our targeted keywords. After using our Google tool box to reindex our website and submit a new sitemap we should be able to crack the top 20 pages on Google for our search query. Stay tuned as we will visit this in a few days and see where we stand. So long for now, Mark@acmewd.com
