Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ
What are Spiders, Crawlers, and Robots?
A Search Engine is the name of a computer process using a program (Spider, Crawler, Robot) operating in an extraordinarily large and extraordinarily fast computer with incredible, almost beyond understanding, memory storage. This composite program searches through the Internet looking for “web sites”. Once found, the website (web site) is surveyed, top to bottom and left to right, and the contents are indexed and then stored in memory. That particular “memory” is compared to other memory storage of same subject web sites. The web site with the best features for first page ranking actually comes in “first” place. It is a necessary procedure in the effort to improve search engine ranking, resulting in a best ranking web site.
How can I tell if my web site might need help?
If you came here via the first or home page, we start by telling you that you, or your website designer can construct a visually beautiful web site and have it ranked well beyond page 94 where nobody will find it and buy something. Why should anyone buy something from you, when you don't care enough to get your web site on one of the first three pages? The reason that the ranking is poor is that the web site has terrible search engine meta instructions or none at all. Even worse, it might have been constructed as an All Flash (swf) website. Flash websites are not visible to the search engines for ranking purposes. There probably is not any real good html internal text with the keywords interspersed within.
You can check out your own web site on MSN. You can't hurt your web site, you can only look at it - no damage at all. You can do this right now, this instant. How? Open a window to your "home" page. Run your mouse to a blank area on the side of the page. Right Click it and select "view source". Scroll your mouse to it and then left click it. Notepad will open up and make a display. You should see TITLE, DESCRIPTION, and KEYWORDS with arrow heads around each word at the top of the page. These are called Meta Tags. Meta Tags are prepared only for the search engine to see and to utilize. They should consist mostly of known, real person/searcher internet verified keyword phrases. The Title should have at least 15 of these words. The Description should have at least 35 words. The Keywords can be as many as 10 to 75 - two or three word phrases, single words are not used. If they or a part of them are missing, you have a Billboard, not anything that website viewers will ever see. You need these Meta Tags because the search engine uses them to gather information about the web site to figure out where to list it. If they are not there then the listing is poorly done and ranking is near the bottom of the list beyond page 10.
If what you see does not come close to what has been described as necessary, your web site has real serious ranking problems. Additionally if you see the words "Welcome to - - -" in the Title or Description, it is a clear indication of a "dated" web site of old, and a waste of needed keyword phrase placement space to assist the search engines in ranking your web site.
Furthermore, more web sites than you can imagine are constructed only using a two or a three word TITLE, no DESCRIPTION or KEYWORDS. Those sites almost never get ranked higher than somewhere around the 10th page or 100 listings from the front - invisible! These poorly constructed bad key worded web sites gather only moss and no money. Why would you want yours that way? Cash is King!

Can I optimize my web site myself, or should I use your Guaranteed Website - Web Site Rankings Service?
Well, can you optimize your Web Site - Sure Can! But remember that Search Engine algorithm changes or updates (guidance instructions) cause rankings strategies to change weekly.

You must keep up with these search engine changes if you are to improve where your web site will be stationed in a particular search engine result. If you choose wrongly, your web site is listed around page 10 or higher and wont be seen by anyone.

If your web site is not present on those crucial first three pages, anyone who is looking for an item like you are trying to sell simply wont find you or your products that are of great value. People usually have their answers and are satisfied after three pages of searching. We at SEOForYou can update your web site pages. This will awaken your web site with a guaranteed high web site ranking or guaranteed search engine placement, using our website ranking services or what is sometimes called guaranteed website, web site ranking, from its current position of sleep.!
How much time will it take to see SEO results?
Each search engine operates under its own rules. They each have determined the maximum size of their "index" or table of contents where each web site is listed. They all search through well over 10 Billion web sites every month or so and then repeat the process, sometimes returning in a week or so when asked.
The web site will be fairly well ranked by the end of the third month.
My Web Site Designer, using keywords important to me, said he optimized my site, but after many months it still is not ranked on pages 1 through 3. Why is that?
Keywords, Keywords, Keywords! Your designer picked the ones he thought that would please you, not the ones that the real people/searchers use to find a website like yours. He did it without any search engine research into what people were really using to find sites like yours. He just guessed at them. The Internet has the answers if one knows where to look for them.
An Internet Web Site cannot be optimized just once, it must be maintained at least monthly. Everything changes, including a persons vocabulary. For Search Engine Optimization Placement, Keywords good two years ago sometimes don't work today and must be replaced.
If my web site is “on” the first 3 pages of the search engines, who will see it?
It's like having a Billboard over a curve in a freeway that everyone must look at to get instructions. That means that almost everybody, providing they use one of the keywords in your web site that is supported by it's use in the internal text can observe it and read your sales information. It goes without saying that the better your web site is, the closer it will be to page one allowing your site to be seen near the top on all search engine web site ranking results.
Bottom Line - If your web site is not listed on the first three pages, your advertising money is wasted, with little hope of any return on your investment, let alone your business success. It's just a lonely Billboard on a desert road with no traffic.
Is there a simple solution to improve search engine ranking?
No. Search engine optimization is difficult and nit-picky work. It requires an in-depth and ever-changing knowledge of how the Internet functions and how the search engines “do their thing”. In fact, we offer a guaranteed website - web site ranking, or guaranteed search engine placement service. It has taken a few years to learn how to do this procedure. It is not something that can be accomplished overnight, as some in our business claim who appear to be selling snake oil on the side.
However having done this since 1996 professionally, we can tell you that usually those who offer such claims simply lend your site their high linkage ranking (being outlawed by Google and others), since the search engines respond well to site linkage. Site linkage can be withdrawn at any time by the giver.
It's better to do a proper organic SEO for long web site life. If site linkage is needed, then careful selection of linkages must be undertaken by both parties, you and them. Once all of this is accomplished, the seo optimized web site is very stable.
What is PPC or Pay Per Click?
There are stories about a 25 to 35 percent fraud rate in the PPC world. But, some good results come from this practice. Google and Yahoo, along with GoTo and iWon and others offer “instant, 24 hour placement” advertising on pages relevant to your business. Sometimes this is a desired result that when combined with the Organic site submission will result in site recognition rapidly. This can be as inexpensive as 10 cents per click or even 25 or more dollars per click. When someone “clicks” on to your site, you pay money to the Search Engine owner providing the service.
The downside is that pay per click is not usually affordable to the small business person. Additionally, imagine someone not friendly to you, doing - well, you know what happens, Click – Click – Click – that’s 30 cents, or even more - maybe going to actual dollars per click. You get this great feeling of success, but it's just someone driving up your costs of advertising. Organic search engine optimization is a better, more economical choice for a rapid ROI.
Are all search engines the same?
No. At present, Google is at the top, Yahoo is second, MSN is third, then ASK, AOL take up postitions 4 and 5. Search engines are strictly business related. They compete for your attention and usage. As such, each of them have different agendas and have found ways they consider important to offer to you their unique services. Google is by far the largest of the search engines with about 62% of the total search market. Yahoo is next at 19% and it appears that Live is third at 9%. An old timer called AskJeeves is in fourth place at 4% with a new name called ASK. At present, all of the other smaller search engines seem to be attached to the larger ones for the "search" purposes. It is the old axiom, the most popular search engines become larger while the others struggle, become lesser known and go away.
Will my web site, once ranked and found to be on the first page stay there?
No! Without constant attention, it will disappear from the first three pages and you wont get any business. There are many hundreds of competing web sites that are manned by full time SEO staff hoping that you just screw up. They know that many hundreds of thousands of sales dollars, yes millions, or even more sales dollars, and business success rest on staying on the first page. Read the pages of this web site. Follow the advice that is presented. If your web site is well written, utilizes proper keywords, uses correct sentence structure, does not using banned techniques, and is maintained properly by reviewing your keywords relevancy monthly, plus site submission to the search engines monthly, your site rankings should stay within +/- 5 positions.
Always remember, If you lose your attention here and become complacent and don't maintain your website on a regular basis, your web site rankings will be taken over by your competition anxiously waiting for you to forget to keep your rankings - guaranteed.
Keep your cool. Do things correctly. Follow the advice. If you don't, it will only be good for your competitors, since they will indeed take your hard fought page positions and you might never get them back. That can be an extraordinarily very big dollar loss of sales. It's what we call, opportunity lost, never regained.
