SEO Process Overview



The Search Engine Optimization (SEO) process is an ongoing continuing process that we perform every day for our clients. It is possible to become very successful with top natural/organic SEO rankings, as most (68% to 90%) searchers skip the paid ads. This large range is highly keyword dependent, e.g. if someone is searching for "buy refrigerator" vs. "what is George Washington's birthday". People searching to buy a new refrigerator have a slightly higher probability of clicking on a paid Google Ad, then someone searching for George Washington's birthday.
The other major benefit of natural or organic #1 rankings is you do not have to pay per click.  Google Adwords can run as high as $182+ per click for highly competitive keyword phrases.
We recommend for our clients to use both Google paid Adwords and natural SEO methodologies to increase web site traffic and improve the quality of traffic you receive.

It is very important to stay with SEO methodologies long term in order to achieve the desired results.  If you stop this process your web traffic and rankings will drop, and it may be difficult to recover previous top rankings.
You can not turn natural SEO on and off like you can for Google Adwords.
Also website owners that jump around from SEO Company to SEO Company are in danger of being penalized by Google.
Google is very complex and secret so no one can claim to be 100% accurate as to why Google makes the decisions it does.  However we do know that Google has many different types of penalties some of which are manual and some of which are automated via advanced software algorithms.
The quality of your backlinks and the longer your backlinks are aged, make up major factors in the Google software ranking algorithms.  Please remember if you lose important authoritative backlinks, then you must start the aging process over from the starting line.  Besides losing PageRank, this also brings suspicion from Google, and you do not want that to happen.  Google detects all these changes looking for unnatural suspicious activities.

SEO Link Building Service

SEO Link Building Service and Strategies
We receive thousands of phone calls, emails, link building questions and listing requests every year about SEO and link building techniques. Eighty percent or more of the people contacting us have terribly wrong ideas about what works and what is important for outstanding results in the major search engines. Below are details, samples, and history of people contacting us with their requirements. Hopefully, you will find useful SEO information that will help your company grow and increase your profits.

Many people phone our company saying, "I need low cost SEO, low quality backlinks, and tons of cheap links."

I respond, "Why?".... They say, "I want to out rank my competitors."
They think it is a pure numbers game, all links are equal and you get more and you win.  This is the wrong link building strategy, and these "cheap low quality techniques" will cause your website to be penalized by Google.

These people want fast outstanding results; they want to be #1 for competitive keyword phrases in 1-5 months.  Most people still do not understand that Google has penalized almost all of these cheap, crappy links and many people still do not even realize to vary their anchor text.  So the fastest way to be penalized by Google is to put up 1000+ low quality links on crappy websites and low quality Directories. 
Important Note: "If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site." - Matt Cutts of Google

Then use the exact same anchor text for all these poor quality backlinks. People who do this might as well just email Google and say "please penalize my site, I am a dumb-ass and I deserve to be penalized."

You need and want to be on Top Quality Sites and Directories.

Big Brother China is watching everyone - Exposing China's Digital Dystopian Dictatorship

"Utopian" describes a society that's conceived to be perfect. 
"Dystopian" is the exact opposite — it describes an imaginary society that is as dehumanizing and as unpleasant as possible. George Orwell's "Animal Farm," for example, describes a dystopian society in which Napoleon, a pig, represents Joseph Stalin in a farmyard satire on Stalinist Russia and how power corrupts.

List of Directory Submission Sites That Google Likes

By Tom Forrest
List of Directory Submission Sites.
List of directories that Google likes and that follow Google Guidelines.

Google has cracked down on web directories that violate Google guidelines.  You should not place your website on any free and low quality directories or websites, you need fewer directory listings with better quality in order to be successful with Google and Bing. Please read the following new article about effective SEO Link Building to learn more.

So I decided I should give people a list of Internet directories that Google thinks are valid and that if you obtained a listing from these directories it would help you with direct traffic generation and also as a "good" backlink as far as Google is concerned. The Directories below are valuable worldwide and businesses from all countries should consider submitting their website to these top quality Directories.

Please see comments below from Matt Cutts of Google on what to consider when submitting to a Directory.
I see many articles that give incorrect SEO information and promote "free directory sites" (low quality), and it is important to study what Google has previously stated. Please understand that Google has penalized many sites for not following the Google guidelines.

When considering submitting to a directory, I’d ask questions like:
- Does the directory reject urls?
If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site.
- What is the quality of urls in the directory?
Suppose a site rejects 25% of submissions, but the urls that are accepted/listed are still quite low-quality or spammy. That doesn’t speak well to the quality of the directory.
- If there is a fee, what’s the purpose of the fee?
For a high-quality directory, the fee is primarily for the time/effort for someone to do a genuine evaluation of a url.

Schengen Area Countries Pros and Cons - The Schengen Agreement needs to be updated and changed

Schengen Area Countries Pros and Cons for visitors / travelers
By Bill Kirk

What is the Schengen Agreement?

There are only pros for the EU member states as a tourist, however there are many cons for tourists from all other countries, e.g. Canada, USA, Mexico, Russia, China, Japan, etc.

The Schengen Agreement needs to be updated and changed. Croatia would be making a big mistake if they join Schengen, if they do join it would dramatically harm tourism to Croatia. Many USA citizens and people from other non-Schengen countries that are tourists spending a lot of money in Europe, and are tourists on longer trips to Europe need to go to non-Schengen countries because of the stupid 90 day limit imposed by the outdated, vague and silly Schengen rules. So these USA tourists go to Croatia for 90 days after spending 90 days in the Schengen countries. If Croatia joins Schengen it will harm tourism to Croatia, as Americans and tourists from other countries would not be allowed to visit Croatia if their 90 days in Schengen countries has expired.

Originally, the Schengen treaties and the rules adopted under them operated independently from the European Union.
Schengen is now a core part of EU law, and all EU member states without an opt-out which have not already joined the Schengen Area are legally obliged to do so when technical requirements have been met.
The Schengen Agreement needs to increase the 90 day limit to 180 or 360 days. This 90 limit is harming tourism in all the Schengen countries. Some tourists would like to stay 90 days in each Schengen country. So if I wanted to take a huge amount of money and stay at fancy 5 star hotels in 20 different Schengen countries for 60-90 days in each country, think about how such tourism money is lost for Europe.

The European Union (EU) should update and change the current Schengen Agreement as these terrible rules have already lost billions of tourism Euros ($$$) for all EU member countries. 

There are other problems with the Schengen Agreement and it is not working as designed. Please watch the video below to see what I mean.

There are 7000 languages around the world, How language shapes the way we think

We are losing languages around the world at the rate of one lost language a week. The lady in the video believes this is a bad thing and I do not understand why. It makes sense to me that there should be less languages needed and used over time as technology continues to make the world a smaller place.
Then I wonder if we will have less countries over time, however I think this question is very different then how many languages we need. Because people need and want to communicate, however for political and economic reasons there is less motivation to have fewer countries in the world. Also I think the Netherlands is a good example of the future, where people may speak a native more obscure language (Dutch) and also speak English as their international language of choice. I have seen people from different countries that all have different native languages e.g. Spanish, Chinese, Russian, etc. all communicate just fine using English.  
Mandarin is the most widely spoken language in the world, because China has the most people. Over a billion people speak Mandarin, yet only 1% of Chinese people speak English.
Spanish is the second most widely spoken language on earth.

Only 13% of the people in the world are fluent at 3 languages and the term for this is trilingual. However if you can speak 5 or more languages fluently you are not only most likely a genius you are known as a Polyglot. Only 1% of the world's population is fluent and can communicate in 5 languages, I have only ever met one person who could do this and he was definitely a genius. He was a medical professor that made a lot of money investing in the stock market and he lived in Monaco. He was also famous for his medical inventions.
