Search Engine Optimisation for Google’s organic search is not an easy process. Since the Panda Update system was introduced in 2009(that’s the name Google gave to the algorithm tools that rank your website), 2009 every year Google requires from us more and more in terms of SEO if we are to get you to page 1 of Google and keep you there when people search using key words.
Prior to 2009 there was a simple a simple form thbat had to be filled in where you submitted Google Analytics Showing Live Activitythe URL (Website address), your email address and your company name - and they listed you. Then along came Google Webmaster Tools, Google Analytics, Google My Business and Google AdWords. These only used keywords and descriptions to be added to the services. Google Analytics used a simple code placed into the website headers.
By 2015 it had become much more complicated with these services being tied together. We responded by developing three tools that would automatically update these Google services without any help or monthly cost from your side. And these worked well.
Now in 2019 Google has expanded their SEO services even more and now include a service called Google API which now ties in with your website, requires us to do more work and has a secure interface so people cannot hack in and steal your stats. The Google services now track your website’s activity in real time. We responded by acquiring and implementing a tool we install on your website called RSSEO to handle these new developments. All our new websites requiring SEO have these new services included and RSSEO. However, clients who have SO that proceeds January 2019 will need to upgrade their SEO. One of the new Google features now also enables us to enhance your listing with what is called Google Rich Snippets which instructs Google what can be displayed and what cannot.
So SEO has become a science in itself and a time consuming service to set up and get working properly. What is really nice is that you really only need to pay for the tools and the setup of the services once. It is wise, though, to have us carry out a health check-up and update these services annually so when Google brings up new demands and requirements we can bring your services and tools up to date. We update RSSEO as a component monthly at no cost to you, but checking on these services and adding new services cannot be done under the update agreement.
Google API ServicesIf you are new to SEO it is important to note that when we add our SEO Bronze package, your page will not feature on page one on Google Search results the next day. It may not appear the next week, or even the next month. It has to climb the rankings and beat sites to page one that have been listed on Google for a long time.
So how do you get page one listing immediately? This is where Google Ads comes in. If we set up Google Ads (Paid for Advertising) then you will have immediate page one impressions and people will visit your website. As people click through to your website because we link Google Ads to Google Analytics you will receive positive ranking on organic search at the same time pushing you closer to that coveted page one.
So what are we talking about to get this up and running? And what happens if I don’t add SEO to my website? Let me answer the second question first. If you don’t add at least the Organic SEO to your website, your website may never be found on Google search results. They may list the company name with a link to your website but that’s all – if you’re lucky. And certainly searchers will not find you using keywords related to what your services and products are. And let’s face it, that’s how most people search for products and services – using keywords or key phrases.
So what is the cost involved? We have tried keeping the cost of setting up SEO for our clients as low as possible. Most clients only need our SEO Bronze package at R 2 500.00. But check out our website for our various SEO packages and get in touch with me.
