Does SEO work for you?

Postby Anthony Stott on Tue Nov 15, 2011 5:19 am

In the last two weeks my articles have shot onto the first page of Google in three countries, not only for the keyword I was targeting but for keywords like MLM and network marketing.

I have spent many hours learning SEO and internet marketing over the last few months and implementing what I have learnt.

Is seems to be paying off for me in terms of good rankings.

Is anyone else getting good results from SEO?

Anthony,

Good to hear that! I learned that SEO really works for most people who do it properly. I just started learning SEO as well and my hopes are high that this will return positive results.


Cheers!

Yes, SEO works, hands down it has been my biggest traffic source over the last 3 years for multiple niches I market in.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) does work and has worked for over 15 years now online. The question is, has SEO provided Distributors and Network Marketers as a whole more business and what has been the ROI (return on Investment)?

For me personally, SEO/SEM works great and I have at least a dozen keyword terms in the top ten and even some in the top five positions in the SERPS (Search Engine Results pages), with at least 100K+ searches a month between them, and I do get leads, but conversions are the usual, i.e. <1%.

This industry (Network Marketing) is probably one of the most challenging categories to be in for Search or for any marketing Channel for that matter, but it can get distributors results over time.

Like most things, there is more to effective "Search Marketing" than meets the eye, and that is where most fail in this area, i.e. there is a lot more to it than most are willing to deal with on a professional level, so it's neglected by most network marketers.

With that being said, I do help and consult people who join my team in the area of SEO and Search Engine Marketing as a whole, because it will only help me help them as said in the movie Jerry McQuire, "Help me, help you!"

Something else... I've noticed lately that most of my actual "dollars and cents" business has been from offline marketing, and maybe because it's the location I live in - Los Angeles area - that makes it that much easier to sort through 100's of people quickly, and very cost effectively to find a few gems here and there.

So in essence, I do my best to combine online, and offline marketing as much as possible to maximize ROI and results in the shortest period of time, because as the old stat, that hasn't changed since the industry started back in the 50's, doesn't lie: 90% will not be interested in your business, and the 90% who have joined will drop out after a year or so in the business.

In other words, the attrition rate is very high, and staying ahead of the attrition rate is one aspect of the business most cannot and will not overcome. Many of the top dogs do it, and make it look easy, but it's not as easy as they make it appear, and it's even tough for the best of the best to maintain and sustain a large organization without the constant fast and furious pace it takes to keep things rolling, i.e. all the plates spinning.

I have solved this problem in a way - I think - nobody else has, and I reveal it to my team members once they join and there really is no competition against it. It really is a game changer and it pertains specifically to what the business is offering to customers/resellers. :D

Anyway, hope this helps...

Does it work? Yes it does!

Should you learn SEO? Yes you should!

I would suggest to anyone, that you take the time to learn onpage SEO and then offpage SEO.

Become a student, educate yourself, and then teach others.

Great comments here and helpful information.

Hi Anthony,

If you really want to hit it hard, SEO really is the name of the game. And it absolutely works if done properly from keyword research, creating page with content with on-page optimization and to building backlinks.

So if may I ask you, what tools do you use in building backlinks to your site?

Thanks

Hi Sonny, I found that manual backlinking methods work better than those "automated" submission softwares available. :)

Just a simple on-page tweak to my site caused my site to rank # 18 on Google (page 2), whereas a week ago it is not even within the top 1,000. :)

So I guess this really works. :)

Hi Verniel,

Congrats bro :) Page that is optimized with less backlinks compared to unoptimized page with more backlinks still has the edge.

And yes most automated softwares now are not that good anymore. The important thing is, you need to get high quality backlinks from high PR sites.

It works perfect if onpage and offpage is combined strategically. Search engine are getting more of user-oriented now. Your website should primarily focus your audience and the search engines. A website with better authority relevancy and popularity ranks higher and quicker in search results.

Right Sunita, and one more very important thing: "Trust". So it's trust, authority, relevancy, and link vote popularity in about that order. Of course google monitors over 200 variables to determine a page's ranking and PR. E.G. Amount of traffic and average time spent on a page and site overall are biggies too that determine rankings in the SERPS.
