My Response to a question on the cost of SEO
The most obvious subtitle: What is the cost of no SEO?
Hi, Steve – that’s a great question and I hope you find an easy answer. As an SEO service provider, I’ve worked on finding the same answer for many years. Just do a search for mousehelp, or mouse help and you’ll see I’m making progress…. Search, “Palm Desert SEO Expert” and you’ll find better search engine results pages (SERPS) for the work I’ve done.
My questions to you: Are you going to do the work yourself, or are you looking for someone you can pay to provide these services? The answer to what is affordable comes down to return on your investment – of either time or money. If every new client represents $1000 in income for your business and you get one new client for every $100 you invest in SEO services, does that match your idea of “any affordable way?”
You can do this yourself. You simply have to regularly post good content with links back to your website. By good content, I mean relevant to the people who search.
Example: If I were to write an article on basket weaving and link it to my site about SEO, that would be considered irrelevant and pointless by the algorithms Google runs. Trust me, they are good at weeding out junk.
Better example: You write an article detailing the many benefits of acupuncture, with links back to your website for further reading, and post it on your blog, post it on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the multitude of other social media sites, and if you get enough interest, Google will take notice and give you the “SEO juice” you seek.
Best example (for me): I’m going to use my answer here, along with your original question, to create an article for my blog – http://rouzell.net – and post it with links back to http://mousehelp.org and http://palmdesertseo.com/ – then post on Fb and Tw, just as I’ve told you to do.
Thanks, very much, for inspiring me to write this response. Motivation for writing is just what I need to feed the spiders, so I get my own “SEO juice.”
