Little Known Facts about SEO

1 / Google Sandboxing
Google will place “untrusted” (which includes brand NEW) websites in a Sandbox. What does this mean? It will not actively start ranking your website until it is trusted, which normally means that there is some age and activity. One of the best activities that you can carry out to get out of the sandbox is to have your business verified by Google.  Here is a more indepth explanation of what sandboxing is all about
Google Sandbox
2 / Organic Search is the only way to be seen.
Google is always expanding ways on how to get you found. For example, Google has Adwords, YouTube, 3 pack, Maps, Mobile, etc. One of our key recommendations is to have your business be listed on Intermediaries such a Directory Listings (Yelp, Yellow Pages, True Local, etc) and Social Media (Facebook, Linkedin, etc). For some industries such as Restaurants, Home Services (cleaning, plumbing), Financial Services etc it is near impossible to rank organically for.

Look at the screenshot on the right handside. I typed in the broad term ” pizza restaurants” in Google Search Box – The SERP (search Results Page) only listed speciality directory listing or content aggregators in the organic search area.  It would be impossible for a local “pizza restaurant” to compete for such a broad term. It is possible for your business to rank for “pizza restaurant” +[suburb] and we are going to show you how.

3 / SEO is NOT Really “Free”.
SEO takes time, effort, content creation so there is definitely a cost.. The normal expectation is that SEO takes 6-12 months to kick in after constant work of content creation, optimization and link building.

It is best to use other methods to generate initial traffic such as Social Media Optimization (SMO), Pay Per Click (PPC) for Instant traffic.

SEO Is not Free
