SEO Completely Changed. Again.In the last 15 years, Google has became very, very good at spotting fake links. Trying to fool Google just isn't going to work anymore. There are two main components of SEO. For SEO to work, both components need to be executed to perfection.
1. Be worthy of a #1 ranking. We need to keep writing, reviewing, and editing the content on your website until you have more engaging content then any other website on the internet. One great article won't cut it. We need 100+ articles, and each article needs to say something new and interesting. You can't write 100 articles that all say the same thing.
2. Create high quality links. Forget about creating fake links. It's a waste of time." Every link we create needs to be legit.

Were You Penalized by Google?
Here's how you can recover...
We specialize in helping people recover from Google updates. We generally see the same problems over and over again. Here are the problems what we generally find when we review a clients' website:
Over optimization of anchor text. If you own a shoe store, and every link to your site has "buy shoes Seattle" as the anchor text, then you will get penalized by Google. The links to your site need a wide variety of branded (your firms name - "Bob's Shoes") and non-branded (SEO keywords - "buy shoes online") words in the anchor text of said links.
Not enough natural buzz. It's hard to create real links to a website. An online shoe store, or law firm website is usually just not that interesting. People aren't naturally linking to your new line of shoes on your website. As such, SEO companies have turned to creating fake links. This technique used to work very well and SEO companies managed to stay one step ahead of Google. The tables turned as Google gradually got smart. Google can spot which links are real and which are fake. If your links are fake, then Google just ignores them. The result is a steady decline in traffic and rankings.
The solution is to get people talking about you online. We need to generate actual real links to your site. Look at step #2 - natural buzz creation to see how it's done.
Lack of content about long tail keywords. Sure, you have an article about "buy shoes online", but one good article isn't enough. To be #1 in Google for your top keywords, you need to be the ultimate resource on the subject. We need 100+ articles. We need to answer every conceivable question someone might have about "how to buy shoes". You need to explain everything there is to know about the process of buying shoes online; everything.
Once we have the content, we need to ensure that it is engaging. Can you tell me what the bounce rate is to your site when people enter via the phrase "buy shoes"? Is it above 45%? If it is, then you have a big problem. A high bounce rate means that people aren't engaged by your content. You haven't answered their question. As a result, they're leaving your site and clicking on another site in Google search engine results pages. Google tracks this user behavior. They penalize you if your bounce rate is too high. We'll help you get your bounce rate down and your conversion rate (the percentage of visitors that become customers) up.
Does you business exist in the world of social media? We need to look at your LinkedIn, Pinterest, local reviews and Google+ accounts. You might not want to create these, but if you don't, well, your social media presence is limited - and that's part of the criteria Google uses when it decides how important your website is.
