Yes you heard it right – affordable seo services are among the most viable solutions for a successful online venture.

Affordable seo services are designed to make your business website popular in search engines, driving it more quality traffic, and of course traffic that are convertible into sales.

Skyrocket your Online Business thru Affordable SEO Services

Some SEO services are really costly while there are also affordable seo services. For starters, it is practical to get affordable seo services that equally offer quality service. But if you have the means to afford big-time SEO services, that will be all up to you.

Smart tips for choosing affordable SEO services
SEO services are customizable and are the best ways to help individuals skyrocket their online business. However, finding the right and affordable seo services can be a tough task. So, here are some practical tips that will help you look for the best affordable seo services. Hiring SEO services need not be costly. As long as they deliver well and answers all your demands like getting huge traffic, which in turn are convertible to sales, that’ll be okay.

1. Use your instinct in picking the right affordable seo services. If you are skeptical with the deal, then walk away. Never make fixed transactions or agreements if you are doubtful of the SEO service’s terms and conditions. Find other affordable seo services that will make you feel comfortable and will meet your standards.

2. Note that the price you pay is almost always proportional to the kind of SEO service you need. SEO services that are already in the business for years and have already gained good reputation in the industry usually charge more. Conversely, there are also lots of affordable seo services out there, but you run the risk of getting poor turnout. However, this should not stop you from looking for cost-effective or affordable seo services as there are also reliable SEO services that charges less but delivers good results.

3. Maximize your budget for SEO efforts. Allocate a practical budget that fits your business’s current status, marketing needs, and of course your goals. For starters, never gamble a huge portion of your budget if you know that you still need to earn that. However, if your goal is to be on the top 10 slot on search engines; prepare to spend good-sized money for SEO.

4. With the many affordable seo services available, the best thing to do is to make smart comparisons. Compare and select the best affordable seo services that fit your standards and offers sound and effective schemes. With your aim to get affordable seo services, sometimes you end up with low quality results or worse, having your site banned if the SEO provider engages in “Black Hat SEO”. Therefore, make wise decisions in choosing an SEO provider.

Get Your Website To The Top Of Google

If you would like to build an online business, it would be in your best interest to get your website to the top of Google. Why? Well, for starters they have the market share in the search engine world. Most people go straight to Google when they are searching for a product or a service. This means that if you can get your website to the top of Google you will getthe lions share of the targeted traffic for your industry.

We are not just talking about to the top of Google for just any old keywords, they need to be the most targeted keywords in your niche. This is where good search engine keyword research comes in. Using the Google keyword tool you can actually determine what people are searching for.

One way of seeing instant results is by using PPC. While this will show you almost immediate results, it can be quite a costly affair.

So what is the first step to get your website t the top of Google? Pick a keyword rich domain name. Previously we wrote about how its all in the domain name. This is incredibly important as your first step. You need to pick a domain that is identical to your keyword (or as close) that is .com, .net, .org or .info. Personally I would always try .com first then .net and so on.

Next you need to use those keywords you researched and create pages themed around them. This way when you start to rank you will also rank for the most important keywords in your industry. For all of this I like to use WordPress. It’s easy to install and very easy to use, plus search engines love blogs. Try and write two posts a day for 2 weeks to give the search engines something to work with.

Next, when you have 1-15 pages on your site, submit your sitemap to Google.

Then it is the most important part. Keep trying to write one post a day. And start link building. Link building will help drive your website up the rankings.

Blogging For Links – Linkbait

Blogging is great way to generate more content for your website. Before, we answered the question – company blog – onsite or offsite? We came to a conclusion that onsite might be more beneficial as you are adding new fresh content to your main website often (hopefully daily). Well apart from the obvious benefit of new fresh content being added to you website, you also have a great opportunity to attract all important links. How do you do this? Well in the SEO world we like to call this linkbait.


Basically linkbait can be defined as writing something so good on your website that people want to link to your post as it gives their blog more value. Let’s take a look at some common linkbaiting techniques:

Talk about a certain community:If you know something about a certain community write a good, thoughtful post on them. Chances are that if the post is good enough you will attract links from that communities online presence.

Be Thorough: Leave no stone unturned. A well researched article has a good chance of being linked to.

Be Controversial: You don’t always have to follow what other people say. If you feel different to a public opinion, write about it! Not only will you get tongues wagging, you might also attract some great links.

Write an article about someone important. Even better, if you can mix this with something controversial you will attract a bunch of links. This Britney Spears……

These are just a few ways that you can build good linkbait. If you spend any time at all looking for new links, you will see the importance of this process. It can take hours to write a good, we research article, but you will save DAYS on link building.

Search Engine Optimization And Submission Services

When choosing a company to look after your search engine optimization and submission services you really need to be careful who you go with. Unfortunately (as with any industry in the world) there are a lot of SEO companies out there that will promise you the world and not deliver. The most commonly used ploy that should immediately raise some sort of red flag is the “top spot guarantee”. Tons of companies will happily promise you the top spot on Google in no time. There is a huge problem here:

1. There is no way ANYONE can guarantee the top spot on search engines. Period. There are many people and SEO companies that will promise this so be careful.

2. IF they do get you to the top quickly, chances are they would have used questionable techniques, otherwise known as blackhat methods. These might get you up the rankings quickly to start with, but search engines will soon figure this out and will result in your website being penalized, if not banned.

What you should look for in a search engine optimization and submissions services company is one that can set achievable, well thought out goals. A good SEO company will assess exactly what your company requirements are and come up with a solution to best enhance your visibility on the SERPs.

Many companies might offer a little “extra” by stating that they will submit your website to the top 500 search engines on the web. Think about it for a second, how many search engines do you know? In fact, how many search engines do you use? There is no point in submitting your website to hundreds of websites if no one actually goes to them right?

What I like to look out for is a company that ranks highly in the SERPs for terms like “search engine optimization” or “SEO”. Clearly they know enough to get their own website to rank. There are a lot of companies that will bid on Google Ads to get noticed on the front page. I am not saying that they are bad companies, but wouldn’t you rather go with one that is ranking organically rather?

These are a few tip for you to follow when choosing the right search engine optimization and submission services company for your online business

SEO – On Page Optimization Tips

There are two parts to SEO: on page optimization and off page optimization. Off page optimization involves all the things that happen off your website (like link building) that affect your search engine rankings, while the on page optimization is what happens on your website. Both are very important to your visibility on the search engines. We are going to look at a few great tips to ensure that your website is as search engine friendly as possible.

SEO On Page Optimization Tip #1: Your title tags are THE tags. Thats right, your title tag is the most important META tag on your website. You need to make sure you get your primary keyword in there first. So many times you will see a website put the name of the company first in the title tag. Big mistake. Remember, people are not necessarily searching for the NAME of your company, they are looking for a product or service, i.e. SEO. Another mistake is to try and put too MANY keywords in your title. You will not rank for much this way as you are diluting the main keyword phrase. Lastly, don’t duplicate your title tags across your website. You have a great opportunity here to rank for many keywords over many pages.

SEO On Page Optimization Tip #2: Use your image alt tags. This is overlooked too often. When ever you place an image on your page you have the chance to tell search engines exactly what that image is about. As you know search engines can’t read pictures, so if you use the alt tag smartly you can get a few more vital keywords into your webpage. NOTE: Don’t use this excessively! If you have lots of pictures on your page there is no need to label every single one, it may be seen as spamming.

SEO On Page Optimization Tip #3: Take advantage of your header tags. You header tags (H1, H2, H3) are an awesome way to put extra weight on your most important keywords. Many websites that I take a look at choose to ignore this for some reason. A good way to use you H1 tag is use the main keyword you are going for on that particular page. And where do you find that? Well is should be the first few words of your title tag, right?

SEO On Page Optimization Tip #4: Interlinking your webpages is like link building, on page style! The idea is to link to your main pages within the body of your text. Sounds easy enough, well too many people don’t do this. If you have a fairly large website and interlink properly, you will see your rankings drastically improve. Two things to remember:

1. Put more weight on your ‘money’ pages. So link to the pages that you actually want to rank for.

2. Use the correct anchor text. If you are going for the keyword SEO Online Specialists then use that as your anchor text.

Those are four excellent SEO on page optimization tips that you can apply to your website to help increase its visability on the web!

Getting A High Quality Score With PPC

Pay per click is not exactly SEO but it can be very beneficial to know how to use it properly. A savvy marketer/webmaster should at least understand both “free” and paid search marketing. Over the past few months we have taken a look at some excellent SEO tips and tricks and today I would like to a few great PPC tips that will save you money on clicks and (hopefully) increase your CTR (click thru rate).

What is QS (Quality Score)?

As stated in the search engine watch SEM glossary :”A score assigned by search engines that is calculated by measuring an ad’s clickthrough rate, analyzing the relevance of the landing page, and considering other factors used to determine the quality of a site and reward those of higher quality with top placement and lower bid requirements. Some factors that make up a quality score are historical keyword performance, the quality of an ad’s landing page, and other undisclosed attributes. All of the major search engines now use some form of quality score in their search ad algorithm.”

In a nut shell, it’s all about being relevant. If your ad and landing page are relevant you will(should) get a better click thru rate and then you will be rewarded by higher advert positioning.

How To Get A High Quality Score.

At the beginning of your PPC campaign it is all about one thing – relevance. How relevant your ad is and how relevant your landing page is( the page where the person goes to after they click on your ad). You see it time and time again – you are looking for something to buy. Let’s say for example you are looking for a dog collar.

You go to Google and type in dog collar. On the right hand side (where the ads are displayed) you will see all types of ads ranging from dog food to puppy clothes. These are highly irrelevant to what the person is search for. Many of the pages that have dog collar on the will take you to the main page of their website and you actually have to find where their dog collar section is. This is not good advertising practice. I know that if I am looking for a dog collar and click on an advert telling me that I can find one there to buy and it takes me elsewhere, I probably will lose interest fast and leave. This is why it is extremely important to keep your keywords and ad groups as tightly knit as possible.

What does that mean?

Let’s say we are selling dog collars. I will do some quick search engine keyword research and come up with a few keywords (note: you should be far more thorough with your keyword research, but for this example I am just going to do this quickly) Using the Google Keyword Tool I typed in dog collar and got the top 10 traffic keywords:

dog collar
dog collars
dog training collar
dogs collars
dog training collars
dog bark collar
leather dog collar
dog collars leashes
dog collars leather
dogs collar

OK so now we need to group these keywords and make sure that they are as relevant as possible. I will group them like this:

Dog Collar
dog collar
dog collars
dogs collars
dogs collar

Dog Training Collar

dog training collar
dog training collars

Leather Dog Collar
leather dog collar
dog collars leather

dog bark collar

dog collars leashes

As you can see I have grouped these perfectly so that each group contains almost identical keywords. Now it is time to write ads for the various groups.

TIP: A really nice little trick is to try and make sure you put your keyword in the title of your ad AS WELL as in the body somewhere.

Keep in mind that you only have alimited amount of space for your ads.

Just as an example, for the keyword group Dog Collar my ad might look something like this:

Awesome Dog Collars
Pick The Perfect Dog Collar
From Our Huge Selection Now!

Can you see how I have put the keywords in twice?

Now that the keyword and ad has been taken care of, you need to make sure that when someone clicks on this they are not taken to the dog food section of your website.

Keeping everything relevant will definately help hugely with your quality score. Do a little research in your niche and you will be surprised at how bad some of the advertising is.
