Q: Does "Guaranteed Top 10 Rankings" guarantee new customers or sales?
A: While we do our best to help you obtain new business, top rankings does not guarantee sales. Like any traditional form of marketing or advertising, there is no way to guarantee sales. Our job is to get you top search engine rankings, and your job is to make a presentation good enough on your website that will make people want to purchase from you, since you know your own industry better than we do. However, if you report to us that the top 10 rankings you are receiving are not getting you an increase in traffic, you may request at no extra charge a revision to the search engine optimization work to make your listings "more appealing" to potential customers. We will then discuss a new strategy to implement with your guidance, comparing your site to competitor sites, and integrate these new changes.

Q: What is the difference between "Local Top 10 Rankings" and "Nationwide Top 10 Rankings" subscription packages you offer?
A: In order to offer the best pricing possible, we offer both Local & Nationwide / Worldwide Top 10 Rankings packages to our clients. Each of these types of packages require a different amount of work and approach to SEO for your website.
"Local Top 10 Rankings" packages are ideally made for clients who wish to promote their services / products / information for their local area. This is done for your individual state, and some of the most popular surrounding cities. Example would be "Michigan Chrysler Car Dealership" which is considered local, vs. "Chrysler Car Dealership" which doesn't target a specific geographic area and is considered Nationwide / Worldwide.
"Nationwide / Worldwide Top 10 Rankings" packages are specifically made for clients who wish to get top 10 rankings for their keyword phrases nationwide / worldwide.

Express Inclusion Subscriptions with excite.com

A: As a courtesy, we setup the initial accounts for you using your provided credit
card information. This ensures that if you should ever leave us, you will still

Q: Does this guarantee me 10 top 10 rankings for all search engines like yahoo.com, google.com, aol.com, etc?
A: While we do strive our best to get you as many rankings as possible across the major search engines, we cannot guarantee that you will have the same number of rankings in each search engine as each search engine is different. You may get 7 top 10 rankings in yahoo.com, but not get any in google.com or aol.com or vice versa. So our guarantee of a minimum of 10 top 10 rankings combined across the 10 most popular major search engines. However many of our clients receive an average of 30 top 10 rankings, and we have had as high as one client receiving 173 top 10 rankings in one month!

Q: Why does it seem to take so much longer to get top rankings in google.com and aol.com?
A: AOL.com gets their search engine results from google.com currently. Google has recently changed up their criteria for determining how a website ranks and how quickly it ranks, and as such depending on how competative your industry is, it could average from 3 to 6 months+ to get top rankings into google. Much of this is now due to Google giving higher value to websites which have been online much longer than others, the quantity and quality of content provided, among other things. While we cannot strictly focus on getting you top rankings for google.com / aol.com, you can rest assured that as your rankings gain hold in other major search engines like yahoo.com, or msn.com, that google will usually follow with some patience and ongoing promotion.
Q: Is there any advantage to you submitting my website
to these search engines and directories, instead of myself?
A: By allowing us to submit your website for you, we
can not only save you the time but also ensure it is
done properly with the new optimization we are doing
for your website. Plus it allows us to keep accurate records of exact dates of submissions, to ensure your website is not submitted too much and meets the criteria of each search engine.
Q: Why are e-commerce
stores charged an additional setup fee & higher monthly fee?
A: Due to the complexity of most online stores and shopping cart systems, most
alone either are not easy to optimize due to the limitations of the store software,
or may require us to create additional "static" pages in order to better
help you obtain top rankings. Many search engines like yahoo.com and google.com
are unable of spidering online stores with long dynamic URL's like http://www.yoursite.com/myproducts.php?cat=5&pid=59.
In cases like this, we may create additional "static" pages that the
can read, as an alternative to a complex link like the one above.
Q: Do you need FTP access
to my website for this service?
A: After our initial keyword research and creation of
your meta tags, you will be given the option of letting
us integrate thse changs into your website, or we can
send you the new files and give you full instructions
on how to add it in yourself. If you do opt to do it
yourself, we will have to fully review your website
after to ensure it falls into the guidelines for proper
search engine rankings. We do highly suggest that you
allow us to implement these changes into your website
to help speed the process, and opting out of our install services does not effect your price.
Q: Why do you require
a 6 month commitment?
A: Getting top engine rankings is a time consuming process
that may sometimes take up to 6 months, as any top rankings
company would tell you, depending on how competative
your market is. Many keyword phrases though begin showing
results within only 30-45 days after submission, and
continue to gain rankings the longer we manage your
website rankings services.
Q: I have read that noone
can guarantee top 10 rankings. How is this possible
for you to offer this?
A: It is a very difficult and time consuming process
to obtain natural search engine top 10 rankings, but it is not impossible
with our experience and some patience. Like building
a house, if you have a strong foundation built, it
last for many years to come. The most important factor
is that our staff keeps on top of your websiteranking
reports each month and if we find one one strategy
is not working
properly, we revise and reoptimize the pages need within
your website to improve rankings. With our guarantee, you have nothing to loose.
Q: Does your service
include PPC (pay-per-click) services?
A: Our top 10 rankings service does NOT include pay-per-click
services with companies like overture, google ad words,
or yahoo ad words. These services allow you to BID on
a keyword phrase against other websites in order to
maintain your search engine rankings, and average between
.05 to $10+ PER CLICK depending on the popularity of
a keyword. This can quickly turn into hundreds or thousands
of dollars per month, and have nothing to do with optimizing
your website or making sure it is properly indexed by
Once the money runs out or you close your PPC account,
your ranking AND your website usually disappear from
that search engine within minutes. PPC services are
instant top rankings, BUT they do nothing to keep your
website in top rankings for the future unless you continue
to dump tons of money into them.
Q: Why do you no longer
accept orders for customers having a Yahoo! Store?
A: In short, the software that Yahoo! Stores uses for it's clients, has many
limitations. Most importantly, it does not allow for us to properly optimize
your website in order to get top 10 rankings. If you do a search for almost any
major product, your changes of finding a Yahoo! Store within the top rankings,
is very slim.
Q: Are we allowed to
select our own keywords?
A: Yes you are. Obviously it would do your website no
good if we only offered you keywords like blue
widget, which may only have 100 search engine
requests per month when you aren't even selling blue
widgets. The keywords we present to you for your approval
are a combination of keywords you give us, in addition
with keywords we research specifically targeted to your
industry and area you promote your business to. These
keywords are sent to you for approval, showing you the
results of how many times they were searched for the
previous month, how popular they are, and how likely
they are to succeed.
Obviously though if you sell a specific product like
an exclusive green widget, but you
want to use the keyword like blue gizmo
instead, we would recommend against it since it your
targeted audience may never find you.
Q: Why does your company
only submit to up to 250 search engines and directories, when
others submit to over 1000+?
A: Quality over quantity. What they do not tell you
is that the other 750+ search engines they submit to,
will not benefit your rankings or popularity in the
least since many of them are either fly-by-night search
engines that are gone tomorrow, or local search engines
for cities like Moose Port in Canada, or even many irrelevant
foreign language search engines. Will it hurt your rankings
if you submit to more or less? Not really, as long as
the main focus is on increasing rankings for THE most
popular top 25 search engines like google.com, yahoo.com,
aol.com, msn.com, etc.
Q: What if you end up
with 11 automotive dealerships who all want top 10 rankings?
You could not guarantee they ALL get into the top 10.
A: Actually we can. Keep in mind that while we may not
be able to get all 11 Chrysler Dealerships top 10 rankings
for the exact phrase "chrysler dealership",
each dealership offers different vehicles, sells in
different states, etc. So it would be quite easy for
us to get top 10 rankings for a Chrysler dealer for
"michigan chrysler dealership" and another
for "ohio chrysler dealership". However in the case of multiple clients who want nationwide rankings for the same keyword phrases, we will only do up to 5 clients for the same identical keyword phrases.
