RSC SEO FAQs:

Nevertheless, we will evaluate your website and come up with a strategy to get it indexed high up the search engine listings. We evaluate your web design and structure then so that we can compare them with that of your competitors.

2. Why is link building important for high search engine rankings?
SEO Link building is beneficial to your website in that it enhances its credibility. The more reputable or highly ranked on Google the websites that are linked to your site, the more prominent your site becomes to the major search engines. This is why link popularity is so important in search engine optimization.
3. Why are Meta tags important?
Meta tags are not visible to visitors to your website. They provide encoded data about your website that the search engines use to list and index your web pages. Unfortunately, their use in this regard has been abused by some unscrupulous SEO services providers such that most webmasters do not give them serious consideration. At Real SEO Company (RSC), we have zero tolerance for unethical, abusive application of Meta tags. We take Meta tag optimization seriously and have incorporated it as part of our SEO marketing strategy!

There is no straight answer to this one. Flash-based websites have always posed problems for search engines and are notoriously difficult to rank well in Google. But the good news is that it is not impossible to get high rankings with such sites in Google! The solution is you don’t have to optimize your web page content, but you have to optimize the links to your site. In other words, we can get your flash website to the top of Google rankings without optimizing your web pages. Instead, we will compensate by getting many incoming links containing the key words for which you want to get high rankings in the link texts.

Each website is unique from the rest out there. Consequently, the optimization results will vary from site to site.

Typical results for clients we have served range from 2 weeks to several months or even a year to attain a top ranking.

This could arise, for instance, from a website having a META keyword tag crammed with popular keywords that don’t actually appear in its content. It is smart to work with an ethical SEO service provider like RSC to avoid becoming a victim.

The search engines might not detect black hat tactics immediately. However, we can assure you that they won’t be eluded forever! Once detected, your website will be blacklisted. Trickery for the purpose of taking a short cut to realizing a high ranking on the search engines for a short-term gain does not do your business any good. Even your competitors, on finding out, shall turn you in to the search engines.

That way, you offer your web visitors additional information on your product(s)/service(s) which your competitors might not be offering, to set your site above the fold!
