The problem is that a lot of companies don't SEO a site properly because they are trying to maximize profit, and if done incorrectly it could actually do more harm to your website. I had a friend of mine that had his website black listed from Google for a few months because the SEO wasn't performed correctly. A common rule thumb that definitely applies here is that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
[email protected] true this is! This is GOOD advice. I have seen some terrible strategies applied, that ultimately hurt. They may help for awhile, but then..... :(

I think the theory is there are no bad backlinks - Otherwise your competitors will build crappy links to your site.

There are better links and there are worse ones.

The amount of links on a page affect the value of all the links i.e 100 links mean the link juice is divided by a hundred links.

Also unique text per link counts too.

seo

SEO is a technique which helps search engines find and rank your site higher than the millions of other sites in response to a search query. SEO thus helps you get traffic from search engines. The first basic truth you need to know to learn SEO is that search engines are not humans. While this might be obvious for everybody, the differences between how humans and search engines view web pages aren't. Unlike humans, search engines are text-driven. Although technology advances rapidly, search engines are far from intelligent creatures that can feel the beauty of a cool design or enjoy the sounds and movement in movies. Instead, search engines crawl the Web, looking at particular site items (mainly text) to get an idea what a site is about.

thanks

SEO is only effective in this business if you are a national chain, a franchise, or if you have a monetized website (affiliate products, or you have your own products or software to sell). You would be better served by including company in local listings like Google Maps or Yahoo Local, then include location specific keywords in your site. Meta tags are not dead yet, they are just not the biggest priority like they use to be. When it comes to website traffic, you don't want to leave any stone unturned so you still want to include keywords in your meta tags.

You sure about that? Type in "window cleaning new jersey" "portland window cleaning" or any number of other main cities + "window cleaning" and you will see non-franchised, non-corporate companies who rank at or near the top because they worked very hard on their seo.

SEO works for any company that wants to be seen. The more competitive the keywords in your rea, the harder you will need to work.

I'd be inclined to agree with April.

National/international keywords are broad and much harder. Regional/local keywords are easier to target as they are more specific and low bearing fruit.

SEO is very effective in getting high rankings on a certain site but it really needs more time, patience and effort to take your site on top of Google.

Yes I am sure about that. It does me no good to to all that keyword research and rank on a global scale if I have one local outfit. I don't need to do all that to target local traffic. Google Maps and Yahoo Local listings help me to get my website out there locally. and that's just ONE way.

SEO is the process of increasing your site's popularity on search engines and gives you maximum benefits of online business. There are two ways of seo one is on page optimization and second is off page optimization.

Original quality content play virtual roll in SEO service. In on-page optimization make strong meta tag and meta description which provide information of website. Put sitemap in front page which show the path for site. Off-page SEO help the generate quality traffic in the website. It may help build links for your site and index site in search engine.

SEO is important for any business to increase web presence and grow in sales, etc. You don't have to be a huge corporation to benefit from SEO, anyone with a website can gain from it if it's done correctly. Google,yahoo, bing (mainly google) loves content,keywords, and high pr. Also, a well written meta description and a well written site doesn't hurt! There are very low cost effective ways to get on page 1 of google. I always pay someone on the cheap to find high PR sites/blogs/profiles to drop my keywords for me and it works. The whole point of it is SEARCH. If someone can key in your specific keywords your site will pop up first if you stay on it and dominate those keywords and get their business. Also, if you blog, that's even better. All new blog posts pop up on google as well. The google dance may happen from time to time, but it shouldn't hurt your rank all that much. Also, protecting your website from malware etc helps stay off of google's bad list.

It absolutely works but does take time and patience. Back linking, blogs on your site, good content on site, blog posts, forum post like this one with your signature back link, article submissions, etc...
I have been working hard for awhile on ranking carpet cleaning orange county in my area which is extremely competitive!
Good luck

You could hire someone to get you the number one spot and hold it on fiverr.com if you'd like by having them submit your keywords to high page ranked sites,blogs, profiles, etc . Or, I found that a great trick is to also put the words together. carpetcleaningorangecounty or, carpet cleaning orangecounty. You get the jist of it! Basically, some people key in things differently or their keyboard sticks and getting those keywords puts you on top. No one thinks to put the keywords together like that, not even your biggest competition. I got a tip from a close SEO friend.

The Simple meaning of the SEO is to optimize the site. Search Engine Optimization is the process through which you can get more numbers of backlinks for your website and it improves the flow of traffic towards your website.
