We often say in reference to SEO, "Your mileage may vary." There are so many variables that it's hard to promise the same efforts on our part will produce the same results for you.
There are a number of factors:
- Size & Competitiveness of your market - we focus on local search. There are 10 positions on the typical search results page. There are the same 10 positions if the geo search team is "Los Angeles" or "Oakland". Ranking on page 1 for a competitive search phrase in a big market will always be more difficult.
- PageRank - Google's basic algorithm used to determine the importance of a page
- Inbound Links - each inbound link to your site is a vote of confidence. The more high quality link you have, the better chance you stand of ranking well.
- Age of Domain - search engines see older domains as more trustworthy and less likely to be spam.
Don't know much about SEO? No problem! We handle the majority of the work while taking into account your input along the way. If you have any questions about SEO or how things are done, we're always happy to give advice or help out in anyway possible.
