SEO results in three months

Where is the money for PPC coming from

One of the hardest things to accomplish is fast SEO results. Most business and entrepreneurs are not willing to pay for SEO companies that might not deliver results right away or at all. If PPC only gives you 20% exposure and you can get top ranking doubling or tripling exposure for a fraction of the cost why don’t more companies don’t take advantage of it.

Accountants are running the show by calculating ROI based on SEM budgets.

SEM is easy to predict. I can see instantly where my dollars are going and quantify the profit generated from a PPC campaign. SEO is usually less expensive but a constant fee.

SEO is like a windmill that continually produces the same amount of energy/leads while SEM is a nuclear power plant. I can’t ask wind turbine to produce more energy but if I have enough of them the could supply all my needs. Yet having a nuclear power plant gives me the ability to call it into service to make my monthly/yearly numbers.

In the end SEM should only be a complementary to SEO efforts to a successful online campaign.

Getting paid vs. Getting traffic. Can I do both?

A constant comment on my blog is. Why are you not making money in this blog.

I have managed multiple websites and analysed on the best ways to make money. I believe that making a viable website/blog with good quality content is the key. Build something people want to pay to place a link, banner or code is the key it is also the long term result of many unpaid hours of work building up to that.

Write and talk about something you are passionate and or knowledgeable about. Get familiar with SEM so you know how to use pad your text with long-tail key phrases not as a dirty SEO trick but more like a good common SEO text based practice.

Why are there so many comments on my blog regarding making money with my brand new blog? Not because they are sincerely concerned about my economic situation. I am sure I am not the only blog that get those comments. It is because they want to show me or sell me something I already know.

When you write about something you are passionate about, that is payment enough but down the line that passion can turn into real profit.

Consistent quality work will always pay better that get reach quick skims and easy turn key solutions. Remember very few unsolicited contacts are in it just for themselves. Trust in your real friends but only after you test them.

Never trust in my statements test my results.

    houston-seo.net

    Notice how three of the top ten ranked websites use the words ” Houston and SEO” in the domain name. Having the best domain name like HoustonSEO.com Does not guarantee success. In this case the owners of the best potential domain did not rank well because they redirected the domain instead of using it for an actual website. Owning a quality domain has value but using it properly is the best way to get achieve their full potential. On the other hand seohouston.com was the top SEM spot. Paying top dollar for a ranking position that should be already theirs.

    Using Vanity URL as name in Resume

    I purchased www.Francisco-Cervantes.com

    As a rule most resumes start with a name. I converted my name and resume title into an invitation to my Linkedin Profile page.

    Vanity URL for Resume Title

    Vanity URL for Resume Title

    This was a unique and creative way to make my resume stand from the crowd. I am an SEO, SEM, Web designer with a strong background in marketing. This idea might not work for everybody.

    Vanity domain names in Linkedin name

    As far as I know I am the first person to modify their Linkedin profile name converting it to a web address.

    Just by adding a dash to my first name Francisco- and a .com to my last name cervantes.com every time I make a comment on one of my Linkedin groups people not only see my name but a website.

    What happens when you type in the website www.francisco-cervantes.com it takes you to my Linkedin profile.

    Discalimers: I purchased the domain name before I change my first and last name in Linkedin.com

    Note: There is a space between Francisco- Cervantes.com but most people that would type in the address would know to remove the space.

    will SEO for food.com

    Today I realized that even if I have valuable skills in:

    • Graphic Design
    • Web design
    • Account Management
    • Search Engine Optimization
    • Search Engine Marketing
    • Social Media Marketing
    • e-mail marketing
    • Marketing Strategy
    • Bilingual

    I really want a job that needs most of them. I also want a job that really needs my SEO skills which are my passion.

    I find man jobs that require one or just a few of them. Giving up one or a few would be ok except for SEO. I know the best possible job for me is out there and it would also be the most satisfying and  profitable.

    I just don’t know how to become a consultant when all my interviews feel like a free Consulting strategy meeting. Am I to smart for my own good?

    I feel like wearing a sing in Downtown Houston that reads “will SEO for food.com”

    The SEO Whisperer

    I have found a few things over the years. I have two identical twitter accounts. One is based on my business name www.cervantesdesign.com the other one is www.theseowhisperer.com.

    I was driving and a saw a track with the Computer Whisperer and I liked it so I changed the name to my field. I secured the domain name.

    I had a twitter account for cervantesdesign http://twitter.com/#!/cervantesdesign/ I decided to create a new one with my brand new identity http://twitter.com/#!/theseowhisperer/ I use TweetDeck which allows me to create multiple feeds from the same location.

    I started to tweet identical tweets for both account but The SEO Whisperer get much more followers.

    In the end a clever name will open more doors than the right or proper name.
