SEO - Frequently Asked Questions
The SEO FAQ is your guide to understanding what SEO is for, and what you can expect from our SEO services.
What is SEO? Why is it important for my website?
93% of online experiences begin with a search engine.
Search Engine Optimization is a set of tasks designed to increase your website’s ranking
on popular search engines, so that more of those experiences lead to and take place on
your website. 75% of those users never look past the first page of search results, which
is why it is so important to have an SEO program in place, to get your site ranking in
the top 10. Placement on the first page of google results will result in major traffic
increase to your website.
How long will it take to rank #1 in Google?
Our goal is to get your site into the top 10 results
within 6 months. Staying on the top of search results requires ongoing SEO.
Do you guarantee I will be #1 in Google?
Google strictly warns against making any ranking guarantees.
SEO is a constantly changing landscape and mild fluctuation in rankings is normal. You can
track your campaign weekly with the provided updates you will recieve from us.
Will you provide a refund if I do not rank #1?
There is no way to guarantee a #1 ranking spot, so we are
unable to promise your refund. We require a minimum of 4 months to prove rank growth. We
guarantee that your rankings will positively change, resulting in more web traffic to your
website. The number of traffic and leads will skyrocket when your website gets to the top 10
results, within 6 months.
How will I know if people are visiting my website?
The dashboard provided will show website traffic.
Google Analytics will also be installed to show historical data. You will gain
insight on traffic sources, audience demographics, content analysis and more.
Can I monitor my ranking progress?
We will provide you with a weekly reporting update that will detail your ranking for each keyword, as well
as monitor traffic to your website.
How will I know that my site is getting quality leads?
Quality leads are drawn in from the best and most relevant keywords possible.
Your participation in keyword selection is vital to bring in the leads that are most qualified and suited
for your industry or area of interest. You also have the opportunity to be involved in evaluating
content that is created for you, which is used to draw in leads.
What if I don’t have a website?
Sugar Design Group also offers website design.
We can create a custom design + SEO package that best fits your needs. Please contact us for more details.
Do I have to sign a contract?
No. We believe in letting our work speak for itself, which is why we do not lock our partners
into a contract - you can renew at the start of each monthly cycle. Please remember that SEO is a methodology
that takes time to produce results. You should be prepared to invest in at least 4 months to prove rank
growth, and 6 months to see your expected top 10 results. Staying on top requires ongoing SEO after that time and if
you were to discontinue maintaining your ranking then other competition will again rise ahead of you in search results.
How do you arrange payments and billing?
We can launch SEO campaigns by a weekly basis. Payment is required up front for the month ahead.
You can provide a credit card and we will bill you on the 1st of each month.
What will I need to provide when I sign up?
We will walk you through the process and you are not required to be prepared with anything up front.
Please feel free to contact us at any time to get started.
