Be wary of SEO firms and web consultants or agencies that send you email out of the blue
If you get an email from some random person with a free email account (ie: BillyBobSEOguy@gmail.com), then you should know not to trust them. If they d not even have a website and are using a free email service, then you should know that are not a legitimate business. More than likely these so called "SEO experts" will send you a message from your contact form with a generic copy and paste message. They will tell you that your website does not rank well, but they will not tell you what keywords they do not rank well for. If they cannot even tell you the keywords that you do not rank well for, then how are they supposed to know that your website does not rank well?Also, they may tell you that your traffic is low (every fake SEO will say this so they can make their sales pitch), but they have no access to any type of analytics to prove it.
Amazingly (stupid), Google itself get these spam emails too:
I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..."
No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google
Do not trust anyone who claims to guarantee rankings, allege a "special relationship" with Google, or advertise a "priority submit" to Google. There is no priority submit for Google. In fact, the only way to submit a site to Google directly is through our Add URL page or by submitting a Sitemap and you can do this yourself at no cost whatsoever.
Be careful if a company is secretive or will not clearly explain what they intend to do
Ask for explanations if something is unclear. If an SEO creates deceptive or misleading content on your behalf, such as doorway pages or "throwaway" domains, your site could be removed entirely from Google's index. Ultimately, you are responsible for the actions of any companies you hire, so it's best to be sure you know exactly how they intend to "help" you. If an SEO has FTP access to your server, they should be willing to explain all the changes they are making to your site.
Our Work Speaks for Itself!
Google Search the following queries/keywords (or click on the links that include the query/keyword). See who comes up. Check out all the websites and look for who designed the websites (look for: "Website Designed by Archmore Business Web" at the footer and you will see all the evidence that you need. I will give you 10 examples of our SEO results (you can always ask us for keyword examples). While no SEO can guarantee page 1 results on the search engines, depending on the keyword you want to rank for, we are certainly able to pull it off from time to time!
