SEO Mythbusting 101
Wondering how to do SEO?
So are millions of other people around the world.
Long gone are the days of keyword stuffing, cheaply made articles that have a 400-word count from ‘Native English Writers’ (that also say will pass Copyscape)
No, Google wants and demands more…
So why do people care?
Well, Google is a powerhouse that demands attention.
“Google has 92.42% of the search engine market share worldwide. That breaks down to approximately 72% of the desktop market and 92% of the mobile search engine market share. The United States leads with the most users. 27% of Americans use Google.”
Is Google Really That Big of a Powerhouse?
While no one is exactly sure how many searches are completed on Google, it’s estimated that there are about 70,000 search queries every second.
To put this into perspective – if you are a fast reader- you probably read all the on this page so far to here in about 15 seconds.
Based on the above that means Google had more than 1,050,000 searches while you have ready this page.
Imagine what sort of income you could have by just getting a tiny, minuscule fraction of those people searching landing on your page.
It could mean the phone ringing non-stop with new customer inquiries, 1,000’s of orders placed on your store and millions of dollars in your bank.
But it is not that easy.
Today there are well over a billion websites (yes a 1 with 9 zeros after it – 1,000,000,000)
And every second the Internet grows way larger as a webpage generally has more than 1 page.
In fact, the Tilburg University in The Netherlands created a research project that estimates the number of pages available each day – currently showing over 5 billion pages.
With Google, such a powerhouse, people from all around have jumped on the bandwagon.
If you have a phone, you probably have been called about getting a website or getting more people to your site.
Let alone getting emails from your website contact forms…
(we look after over 1,000 sites and know contact form spam is massive and so hard to stop not just for our internal sites but also for all our customers as well)
Just think with the Internet being this massive, can a person in India promise that they will get you into the top spot in Google for only $300?
Sorry, but it is not going to happen…
Google is big business and they spend billions of dollars making sure their propeties stays that way.
If it was that easy to get the top spot, why would people pay them for the priviledge?
And pay Google they do – Ending March 2019 Google’s Advertising revenue was $30.720 billion for the year, up 15.3% from $26.642 billion a year earlier.
Getting Results Fast
Today the quickest way to get to the top of Google for almost any site, and to reap the enourmous benefits that come with it is to pay.
Goolge even says in their advertsing ‘For every $1 businesses spend on Google Ads, they make an average of $2 in revenue. (source: Google)’
So as long as you have a decent offer and a great website – the profits are there even after paying Google their share.
