Google Approved SEO

SEO and Web Design, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northeast England This little ditty always makes our team chuckle... Google (and also Yahoo or Bing) does NOT approve any SEO individual or company either by name or implication. Please read this statement again so you are truly aware of the point. The closest any individual or SEO company can claim to be 'Google Approved' is if they conform to Googles Webmaster Guidelines because the reward is a natural organic listing. Anyone can use the Adwords to 'Pay' for a listing and you would be best advised to avoid these, and their desperate claims and tag lines.

However, if you are looking for an SEO company who can really do their job, here are some useful questions to ask before you part with your hard earned cash:

  1. Can you show me examples of your previous SEO work with 'search engine ranking results' (SERP's)?
  2. What kind of SEO results do you expect for my website and in what time frame?
  3. Do you and your SEO company adhere to Google's Webmaster Guidelines?
  4. How long has your SEO company been in business and what SEO experience do you have?
