I am currently using an SEO company and they are doing submissions for me every other month. They asked me if I wanted to do it every month, Will this be worth it to do it every month?
Thank you for your time
I think your SEO company is ripping you off. Despite the hype, there is NEVER a need to resubmit to a search engine or directory unless your site is dropped entirely (which is a very rare occurrence). In fact, provided you have a link pointing to your site from a site already in the search engineâ€™s index, you donâ€™t need to submit your site to search engines in the first place. Search bots will find your site automatically as they sweep their database of indexed sites looking for new links to follow and new content to index.
Perhaps your SEO firm is talking about gaining new backward links for your site by submitting it to new niche directories and related sites each month? Ask to see the list of sites they are submitting your URL to each month. If the same engines are on the list month after month, they obviously have no clue about SEO and Iâ€™d ditch them quick smart.
Thank you for answering my question Kalena.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I BE PAYING TO HAVE MY SITE HOSTED EACH MONTH?
Do you ever get out to Palm Springs,Ca.?
I agree that getting your site in search engines isnâ€™t really that difficult and doesnt require ongoing effort. However improving your search engine ranking condition is a right pain!
Iâ€™m using nemeas.com at the moment which makes it slightly easier but itâ€™s still a pain! I would suggest buying software instead of paying a monthly fee. Nemeas is fairly reasonable!
Dang!!! I hope I donâ€™t use the same company as that guy. They could also be talking about submitting site maps??? I am curious to know what they are proposing. In the SEO industry is there a “governing” body that helps in situations like this guys?
@ Darrell - Site hosting costs can vary widely. It depends on what options your host is giving you. As a guide, I wouldnâ€™t be paying any more than is quoted here: http://httpme.com/plan_page.htm (these are our hosts)
*** I would suggest buying software instead of paying a monthly fee. ***
I wouldnâ€™t be submitting at all, and I certainly wouldnâ€™t be using “software”.
Directories, Yes, Search engines No.
They may be referring to submitting your .xml sitemap??
Probably not, but you never know.
Otherwise ,I would tell them to beat it!
Exactly, many SEO companies charge their clients monthly (in many cases $1500+) and donâ€™t do any work.
