SEO Agency Hervey Bay – Are you tired of wasting money?

SEO Agency Hervey Bay – Are you tired of wasting money?

Tired of wasting money on SEO? Discovering a good SEO Agency in Hervey Bay is actually possible as soon as you get rid of the smoke and mirrors.

On a daily basis someone tells me their story how they have put in a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask just what Internet Marketing Experts Hervey Bay will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be more of the same?

The trouble is an SEO Agency doesn’t really want you to know the secret formula to getting those keywords ranked. The reason why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you know how little they actually did for you each month you would definitely terminate your contract and go elsewhere, this is what I call the game of smoke and mirrors.

Does this seem familiar? ‘Well it takes time to get keywords onto the first page’ or ‘Those keywords are way too competitive so we will focus on this particular phrase because a little traffic is better than none, right?’ or ‘we do stacks behind the scenes to make sure your existing keywords stay where they are and don’t go down on the page’ or ‘backlinks are not needed’.

On a monthly basis you get a report showing how your keywords are going, and month after month absolutely nothing seems to happen. You can’t get the keywords you want because they are too tough to get.

So what to do if you believe your SEO Agency in Hervey Bay is making use of the good old ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ trick to keep you pouring money down the drain on a second rate SEO campaign?

Here is my sure fire way to take away the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Hervey Bay;


  1. Ask to see a thorough report of what on page work has been carried out in the month. This means modifications to Meta Descriptions or fixing on page errors etc.


  1. Ask to see a daily or weekly report of what off page tasks are completed for your business’ website each day. For instance you want to see a rundown of the following items each day or week;

a.Social Bookmarking

b.Web Directory Listings

c.Classified Ads Posted

d.Ping Submissions

e.Local Directory Listings

f.Q & A site posts

g.Blog commenting

Be Warned! This line of questioning will lead to almost any SEO Agency in Hervey Bay to squirm. More than likely you will get a few responses;

  1. Well we don’t in fact give our clients that info.
  2. We just send you a monthly report to measure the results around here that’s the only thing that matters.
  3. Well since the penguin update a few years ago most of that off-page stuff is no more of any SEO value.
  4. We only create high quality links that’s why we only do very few every month.
  5. If you do a lot of off-page work you will definitely get penalised by Google
  6. We do not use all those spammy/blackhat tactics.

Be assured when you ask for anything more from your SEO Agency just like the list above if they respond happily and furnish you a detailed list of all the work they have done for you in the past in detail link by link then you are most likely onto a good SEO Agency. Nevertheless if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. How much do they actually do for you each month? Any suitable SEO Agency in Hervey Bay will proudly tell you how many links they build for you each month. Be sure that it sounds like plenty.

Lets say you are investing $1,000 per month with your current SEO Agency?

This is the sort of numbers you should be finding every month.

a.Social Bookmarking x 20 per day

b.Web Directory Listings x 10 per day

c.Classified Ads Posted x 10 per day

d.Ping Submissions x 10 per day

e.Local Directory Listings x 2 per week

f.Q & A site posts x 1 per day

g.Blog commenting x 1 per day

That’s a total of over 50 tasks daily that should be getting done for your website. Remember great websites that rank no 1 in Google, have 10,000 back-inks to their site.

Just a word of caution, if you are simply not mindful and use a credible Australian company you can achieve high figures of links which are all spammy and will definitely cost you eventually with Google penalties, make sure your links are with respectable sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are an abundance of Indian companies that guarantee big volumes, but they will sabotage your site in a few short months.

In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Hervey Bay each month, don’t be afraid to ask for a breakdown of tasks and activities carried out for you each month. Don’t fall for the smoke and mirrors it gets pretty old pretty quick.

At Internet Marketing Experts Hervey Bay we pride ourselves on transparency and educating our clients so they know what they are getting for their monthly spend. Imagine having an SEO Agency that supplied you with detailed report of every action taken for the month, not just a rankings report?
