Why Does SEO Seem So Expensive?
SEO requires a lot of work to actually accomplish rankings. There’s a lot of content that has to be created. There’s a lot of technical changes, in some cases. I’ve seen a lot of people pay people $100-$150/month for SEO and expect to rank. In most cases, you’re paying but not ranking because it takes so much time to get good results that they won’t be able to put in much time at that cost.
In the first place, you need to have a good website. There needs to be content on the website. If it’s not a good website and a lot of technical changes need to be made, that takes more time. The SEO company will need to look for ways to earn links back to your website. So there’s a lot of activity that’s going on to really create the content, and then earn the links back to your website so that your website has the chance to rank. That takes a lot of time and that’s why it costs more money.
If the cost is one of your top SEO questions, maybe you should try PPC (Pay Per Click). If you pay for PPC and see the real cost per lead is in a competitive marketplace that’s very well controlled, you might gain a better appreciation of how SEO can get you there in the long haul, and actually be less expensive.
Will I have to keep paying for SEO after I get top rankings?
There certainly are people who eventually get to a point where they say I’m going to stop doing SEO. But most of the time, when people see that it’s working for them, they want to continue to figure out how they can do more, and also to maintain the rankings.
One thing that I’ve seen time and time again is that the minute you push one of your competitors off of the first page, or out of the top slot, or out of the top three slots, they’re out there trying to figure out how to get those top slots back. That’s why most people say they want to continue to be in that spot and keep on with their SEO.

Although I am well known all over the world, no one could find my website, and I mean NO ONE! The design was a mess, my picture looked bad, and it wasn’t optimized with keywords, so no one could find me. It was very frustrating! Children looked for me on the web and looked for a place on the website to email me about their list, but they couldn’t find it. I wasn’t getting my email. period.
So I needed some help. Mrs. Claus did a Google search and found JaxWorks SEO & Web. She gave them a call and they worked with me on a website design and some internet marketing strategies. They helped me with any questions I had. They came up with a beautiful design and optimized my site, so Google, and especially all the wonderful kids, could find me. I had no idea how important this was!
Their staff got me up and running in no time. My elves were very happy, because the site was very easy to use. They showed me how to add to my blog and how to setup my email newsletter.
I was able to create my email list. Now the kids can find me! It’s nice to be able to check my nice and naughty list everyday. My elves have helped get me up to speed with training from Yvonne at JaxWorks. Thank goodness!
I would recommend their services to everyone in the North Pole. They are helpful and VERY professional. And they answer the phone! If you’re looking to give a good gift to someone in your family who has a business and needs a website or internet marketing, send them to JaxWorks. It’s the best gift you can give any business-person.
Everyone that uses a computer should use some form of it. In the world of mainframes and microchips it’s called data backup or data recovery and it can mean the difference between a slight computer setback and living through your own electronic apocalypse.
Let’s face it; our computers are a bigger part of life than ever before. We shop, work and play using computers. They’ve replaced stereos, encyclopedias, even the mailman. They’ve become journals, photo albums and canvases for our art.
But computers aren’t perfect. Files become corrupt, we get viruses, motherboards malfunction, we throw our computer again the wall (!), CPUs call it quits taking our data with them.
The best defense is backup up your computer data…it’s important for individuals and it’s vital for businesses; lost information can cause a major crisis or worse, lead to business failure. Individuals who don’t backup computer data run the same risk. While this may not cause financial ruin, it can certainly be frustrating and even heartbreaking. So why do so few of us practice data backup?
Here are the common excuses:
“I’m too busy to backup my computer.” We are busy; work, family and friends fill our days and leave us little time for boring things like computer maintenance. But today’s backup software manufacturers make it easy. Through scheduled backups, your system can automatically perform a backup that fits your needs at an interval you choose – without interrupting life.
“I don’t know how to backup data.” Like preparing for a natural disaster, most of us understand how important data backup is, but don’t know where to start.
“My computer won’t crash.” You’ve had your computer this long and haven’t had problems so far why worry about computer backup now? Data backup is about protecting your data’s future, but with computers, it isn’t if you crash, it’s when you crash.
In today’s high-tech world of sneaky spyware and venomous viruses, you are in more danger of data loss than ever before.
So with that said, how does one choose the right backup software? There are many varieties available – some suited to a growing business and others for growing families. Some backup software is for technical experts, other packages for the technically challenged.
There are lots of options…the most common being online backup that you never have to think about and in-home backup where you have to have another drive. Decide what’s best and do it NOW!
Oh, and tell your friends they need to backup, too, by sharing this post.
