Result? TOP SEARCH ENGINE Page Returns!

You might be wondering what all the fuss is about achieving the much-envied first 10-20 search engine results.  What’s the big deal?  Well, as my friends in Real Estate tell us, it is all about Location, Location, Location.  And indeed, in the internet world of business, location matters just as much as the physical.

Attaining the enviable position of being in the first 10-20 search engine results equals Search Engine gold!  The top 10-20 results are the ones people actually click through on, right?  Because we all know by now that those returns on the right hand side are ads.  But studies show that consumers click through more often on the search engine results which display on the left hand side, those which have been earned “naturally”  or “organically.”  Therefore, you want your business’ website to be in those enviable Search Engine Results top positions.

Now, mind you, there are some wonderful statistics about being #1 vs #2 and #10 vs #7.  However, do not fret unduly about your precise number because the Search Engine algorithms are constantly being fine-tuned.  It’s like watching your retirement fund on a daily basis.  Just after a change in the algorithms, search engine page rank results will shift and change as precisely what is stressed changes.  Then within about 10 days, the cumulative effect of your Offsite SEO efforts show their great business value as you return to the high rank which your efforts have earned you.

This is why it is essential to commit to at least a 6 month or longer SEO engagement and only work with reputable SEO firms who will make that kind of a business partnership with you.  True to form, the Search Engines are all about, “What have you done for me lately?”  You may earn and achieve an excellent page rank after 6 months of massive and focused effort.  But if those efforts are not sustained, you will be knocked off your position of achievement by the next guy who puts in the time.

Onsite SEO and Offsite SEO need to be ongoing to reap their rewards of your efforts.

Comprehensive SEO


Pulling it altogether now. For your website to achieve a top ranking search result by the Search Engines, you need to have both Onsite SEO and Offsite SEO working in concert harmoniously together.

Simply put, if your Offsite SEO focused on the Key Word “Influence” but your Onsite SEO stressed “Persuasion”, the Search Engines will not connect those two terms optimally. It’s like having a great product and expecting it to sell itself with no Marketing and Sales. You will be wasting time, resources and money and inadvertently hobbling the online growth of your business.

So, your website needs:

  • To prove – overtime – it is a TRUSTED business.
  • To accumulate top AUTHORITY on your subject of expertise.
  • To be highly RELEVANT, more so than the majority of your competition.

What are some other factors to consider in Offsite SEO?

Google Wants You to Have TAR: Trust, Authority, and Relevancy


You have probably already heard that leading persuasion experts tell us that building credibility is essential in any persuasion situation. Well, the same is true with top Search Engines like Google and Yahoo!

  • On the internet the best ways to build trust include:

Have been established in business for awhile
Typically, online this means having been online for more than 1 year. This is why it is essential to have the Google spiders find you as soon as possible. PYO’s techniques get your website noticed by Google within 24 hours, often less. For most businesses going it alone, this can take months to achieve.

  • Known by the company you keep

This included refraining from association or affiliate links with scams or online frauds. You also need to be wary of legitimate businesses but those which the leading Search Engines frown upon which are adult in nature such as gambling and adult websites.

  • Refrain from obnoxious – SPAMMY – behavior

In the early days of the internet which you can check out within Alexa’s wayback machine, key word stuffing and invisible text was actually rewarded. Now that is considered spamming and Google will penalize your website and might even delist if until you have cleaned up you website. Having done so, you will need to restart building your TRUST with the Search Engines from scratch. You might risk month’s worth of effort. Be very careful.

  • Have a quality loading speed and up-time

We have all read and heard about the horror stories of hosting companies and their data center disasters. Be sure to host with a quality hosting company like or Host Gator. Additionally, you want to keep your audience in mind. Not everyone has high speed internet. How quickly does your website load? Be careful and refrain from adding costly flash images which most consumers skip anyway. And certainly they take way too long to load. Speaking of your audience, you’ll want to stay in touch with them on a regular basis with some kind of newsletter, at least once a mont. Two of the better services to use are include Aweber or 1shoppingcart. One of the nice features about 1shoppingcart is that you can have your shopping cart with the same service. Simplicity to have it altogether in one place, isn’t it?


Just like we said early, this is a popularity contest with Google. The popularity votes as cast by your backlinks, the number of quality (relevant) website links back to your website. As many of you probably already know, the more popular the website casting their vote for you, the higher rated the vote for you.

Establishing and earning Authority with the Search Engines is something which takes time to achieve over an extended period of time, and you reap the benefit of the cumulative effect of the massive well-focused effort.


Yes, just as you might expect, the website content must be relevant to the words of the search phrase.

To cite the earlier example of link directories, just having your website cited – a backlink – at any old website is no longer enough for it to be a valued backlink with the Search Engines. The content of the referring page and the referring website need to be somehow relevant to the business of YOUR website as well.
