Frequently Asked Questions

The most common questions we get asked by those interested in our service.

What does SEO stand for?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. The goal of search engine optimization is to put your website closer to the number one spot on Google. When your potential customers look for having a service completed such as “Dentist in Vancouver”, the results which appear on the first page of Google get 92% of clicks. The value of SEO is exponential as your business gets closer to the first page.

Will you lock us into a long contract?

It is a standard in our industry to put together lengthy contracts. This is for a couple of reasons. The most important reason is that SEO takes time. Google takes their time with ranking your business which is why it is so valuable to solidify a spot on the first page in the first place. That being said we like to work on a per-month basis. Of course, if someone does choose to work with us for a single month the results they would get from a campaign would be far less than one that ran for 6-12 months.  Exponentially so.

What is the difference between SEO and Paid Ads?

Paid advertisements on Google can have great results depending on your industry. It is important to note that 90% of clicks go to organically ranked pages and not paid ads. A simple question to ask yourself: Do you click ads? SEO is a long term strategy that works. AdWords is a short term strategy that with proper attention can work as well depending on the industry.
