Out of the hundreds of webmasters who are trying to be successful online, only a small percentage make enough cash to sustain their processes . An average webmaster reads over 10 SEO consultation & traffic ebooks a year, in my opinion. Even with all that details , most of them do not seem to understand the critical underlying factor for SEO.
If you are trying to get people to your site yourself, I have news for you: YOU CAN”T DO EVERYTHING YOURSELF!
As an example, an over -enthusiastic site owner starts blog commenting, forum posting and getting reciprocal links. What he does not know is that finishing all this himself is just not sustainable (unless he has totally nothing to do the whole day, in which case he has bigger problems). When I was new to internet advertising , I tried doing all this stuff myself and got burnt out in a few weeks . Why?
Because of data overload! You just cannot read other users comments and reply to them in an fixed fashion the whole day. You will get bored and tired! You are only human!
For that reason, I have always found SEO and outsourcing companies to be life-savers. If you are doing SEO and link building yourself, I feel that you are burning yourself out and not even saving a lot of money.
Keep in mind , when you appoint a SEO consultation company, always go with quality over quantity. It does not matter if a SEO firm can provide you with 10,000 links from articles! You need a few hundreds of high quality links to do the trick for you.
As an additional note, when you are outsourcing, make sure that you explain exactly what should be done, one by one . Since I started giving my outsourcers the perfect , step by step information, I have reduced my costs by 40%.
Anyways, the point of this whole rant is to get you to stop doing SEO yourself. Your job as a website owner is to brainstorm the marketing and operational aspect of your website . Hand out the SEO affairs to the SEO firm and the advertising (and any redundant jobs) to your outsourcing company.
This tip is guaranteed to bring you traffic in the long term. It will also give you peace of mind!
