I have just received an email informing me that this blog need some SEO service. Although I have little knowledge in SEO, I am still far away from those keyword I would like to obtain for this blog. Interestingly, they have also suggested a keyword for my blog, which is “Search Engine Marketing Union”. What sort of people would search for this keyword, if a SEO company introduce such a keyword for me, they definitely do not know SEO.
Okay, let me do my small little research, you could feel free to correct me as I am not the pro as this field and would love to learn more about this.
1. Keyword Research
Use Google Keyword Tool
to check on the keyword and the result. No searches, no advertiser competition.
My second way of researching. Use allintitle search
at google. Showing that only 72 websites are fighting for this keyword. If you see clearly, it so happen that they targeted this word because they wanted to target Search Engine Marketing European Union or Union City??
2. Research on the Company
Hmmm. The company got no PageRank. They have a client testimonial that does the same business that they do that is Internet Marketing and Pay Per Click Advertising. If they recommend me PPC, I would belief them as you do not need to have good PageRank or good ranking to be good in PPC. If they are for real, they would place themself high and at least do PPC on their own keyword like “PPC management”.
Here is the email:-
I was looking at websites under the keyword search engine marketing Union
ranked 14 on page 2 in google. I’m not sure if you’re aware of why you’re ranked this low but more importantly how easy it is to start getting higher listings in search engine results. All you need to do is some simple “link publicity” for your website and you could quickly hit the front page and work your way up to #1-#3. … over the last 5 years we took the website www dot weddix dot de from only 50-100 clicks per day from Search Engines up to 49,000! clicks per day! (generating $23M in sales last year!) How? Well, by having quality articles written about this website which were then published by many blogs, web 2.0 websites, and many other well respected websites on the internet… amongst slowly adding hundreds and now tens of thousands of highly optimized content pages to his site. We also took a site last year which was quickly losing its SEO rankings and using the same techniques got their site from: BEFORE After (3 months later) July 2007 Nov 2007 Google: 165,578 Google: 300,803 Yahoo: 11,076 Yahoo: 39,113 Google UK: 14,823 Google.co.UK: 12,242 Total: 191,477 Total: 352,158 … we doubled his traffic by basically do press releases with content about their company into many many web 2.0 networks, blogs, industry news sites, high PR news sites, article directories… you name it – we made his website “famous” online and google rewarded him greatly. Now let me be completely honest with you – the keywords these clients paid to optimize were extremely competitive and thus relatively expensive to optimize…. and generate insane amounts of traffic. We were paid over six figures for optimizing those two sites alone and the clients are making a huge ROI from their investment! Your keyword: search engine marketing Union Is NOT competitive and I now have a large team to allow me to serve smaller businesses such as yours for pennies on the dollar – for a fraction of what those clients paid – you too can enjoy the fruit’s of Top 10 rankings in google for your target keywords. I’d be happy to show you results in the first 30 days with NO money down – just to prove to you how good we really are at this. If you’d be interested in seeing what we can do to ramp up your traffic — I’d love to speak with you over the phone to go over the details of how our system works. Just reply back with a good time to call and I will reply back with my call availability so that we can schedule a time that works for both of us!

I strongly belief I am just a victim of their SPAM, which is why I do not want to link back to their website. You could just take a look there replacing the dot. I do not think I have the interest of hiring someone to do SEO mainly because it is expensive and I would like to do the learning myself.
This think blog post would actually rank high for this keyword, take a week or two and see. Although I have been spamed, the article they provided at the last part is actually pretty useful, which is why I have to thank them as well. They should learn something from there before spaming other people.
