Today’s post is an article by Ana Hoffman of Traffic Generation Cafe. Thanks for these useful tips Ana!
A day doesn’t go by that I don’t receive an email that tells me how I can finally afford to buy a bunch of high-quality high-PR links for peanuts.
Or the ones that tell me that, if I only use their SEO services, my site will be guaranteed to make it to the first page of Google for practically any keyword.
Those kinds of claims warrant this email.
Google search engine ranking myth #1:
If an SEO expert approaches you saying that he can guarantee you will get the top search engine ranking for your chosen keyword, laugh in his face (or at least your computer screen).
I doubt it that any SEO expert owns search engines, has control over them, thus he can’t guarantee any result.
He can however assure you that he will use all his expertise to try to increase your traffic generation through top Google search engine ranking.
Google search engine ranking myth #2:
Pay $100 and some SEO expert will get you 100 links to PR 5-8 pages.
Impossible! It costs an arm and a leg to get links to high-ranking pages, $100/month and up.
Actually, there are only five ways I know of to get links to high-PR pages:
1. Talk them into putting a link on their site for free (!).
2. Get them to enroll in your affiliate program.
3. Provide them with unique content that they WANT to put on their sites.
4. Put them on low PR pages and wait for the PR to rise.
5. Have such a fantastic site that people voluntarily put links up and tell others about you.
So hope this info will keep you away from the temptation of hiring all the wrong people to “take you to the top”.
Learning to do it yourself is your best bet – that way even if you hire someone eventually, you’ll know whether they are doing a good job for you.
