3plains SEO Consulting & Search Engine Marketing
We could fill this page up with charts and statistics but the bottom line is that unless people see your website, it really can't do you that much good. Here at 3plains we want your website to show up at or near the top of the list for what your customers are searching for with the SEO process. Unfortunately, there are too many people that call us that don't understand the SEO process or what is really involved.
The Problem with Organic SEO
- SEO is a long term process. Results are not instant and updates can take months or even close to a year. It's truly a long and grinding process that is very misunderstood.
- Transparency. Too many companies are out there hiding what they really do. This process is not a mystery and I find it amazing how many companies are out there screwing over their customers on SEO.
- Rankings are almost impossible to report because of personalization in the SERPS.
- Customers are worried about ranking #1 for a particular phrase when they should be more concerned about business goals or asking how they can best fill their booking calendar.
- SEO is a bad term. SEO should almost be called Content Discovery or something like it.
- SEO is a term that shifty or unethical companies can use and price lower and do the minimum effort.
- If you find SEO for $99/month, more than likely you are not getting SEO.
- SEO is not cheap.
- Nothing is black and white in SEO. SEO is a matter of opinion and not a matter of fact.
- If you need SEO results today you are out of luck. SEO is a long term process. If you need results today, go the PPC route.
- SEO is manual. There is no automation. It's labor, man hours and hard work.
