SEO isn’t easy.  Getting your site to the front page of Google or Bing isn’t a trivial task.  The small firms that pop up and promise to “get you to the front page of Google” are being a little deceptive.  Let me explain why.

First, the only thing a real SEO can promise you is that they will perform some specific tasks that empower your website to rise to the top of search.  If all of those tasks are performed to perfection, it is still possible that you won’t show up on the first page of search for specific terms.  Why?  Well, the robots that crawl the web have some rules they follow, and those rules change and are updated frequently.  Your site may be behind your competition in age, for instance.  The age of your domain helps your Google rating.  If you are new, there isn’t much you can do about that.

You may have some bad backlinks from disreputable sources.  If you or your prior SEO bought backlinks for your site, you may be suffering a penalty from Google.  Google wants your site to be useful and relevant, and earn the links it receives.  If you game the system, the system might game you back.

You might have a very, very competitive field.  If you are competing in a market where the keywords you want are highly competetive, you need to be patient to start making progress.  You need to out quality your competitors on a consistent basis, or hope they make a mistake.

We can offer you some services that will help you rank, even in competitive fields.  If you have a desire to get to the top, we want to help you.
