Okay, you are saying by now that besides the reputation management that is what everyone else is doing and offering. Right, now we’ll go into a few little tricks that we have up our sleeve to help you get faster rankings—-sometimes in just a few days!!!  For faster sustainable rankings we do 5 other things that traditional SEO companies don’t do. They are:

  • YouTube Live Events- We create short keyword rich videos and post them as live events. The videos themselves are not designed to generate traffic but the link that is provided to your website has incredible ranking power.
  • Twiiter Posts-Like the Youtube live events the tweets are not designed to generate traffic themselves but to give your website an incredible rankings boost.
  • Google Indexing with high domain backlinking. Just posting content online isn’t very useful unless Google knows it is there. We create small mini-Google sites that Google sees pretty much instantly with links to your site. We connect these mini sites to other mini sites and that creates another method of getting massive authority links.
  • Utilize Web 2.0 high domain authority backlinks. We manage a backlinking campaign that creates thousands of links to your site using white hat SEO techniques.
  • Press Release-We can release a press release that will provide your site with high domain authority links from news orginizations.
