LINK ENHANCEMENT SERVICES
We offer 3 link-building enhancement packages as follows:
When it comes to link-building, although we always recommend that you consider implementing action for 1 year minimum, we offer you the possibility to run a 4-month test campaign. Any lesser could not be considered a real test since link building does not show results "overnight.” In fact, we invite you to read our FAQ #4 titled "How long does it take to notice results?"
Such test period is offered on a prepayment basis only. In fact, when scheduling a link building campaign, we need to book/schedule our technicians’ time accordingly. Being that we do not subcontract any of our link-building campaigns to third parties, we are limited to the work force of our team, thus explaining why prepayment is required for a 4-month test.
In other terms, after putting your campaign on our active fulfillment schedule, other jobs/potential customers might be turned down or backlogged due to our workload. Once again, in order to insure the quality control of our work, we do not subcontract link-building in order to embrace more business explaining why prepayment is required in all cases. No exception will be made.
After signing up, a link-building campaign manager will be assigned to your account. Such manager will contact you to define the most appropriate strategy for your upcoming link enhancement campaign.
Your CM (campaign manager) will explain to you precisely the process which we will implement for press releases, article submissions, forum postings, blogging, social networking, directory submissions, etc. It is impossible to detail such process in advance, since it is highly customized according to the nature of the website, its current link popularity factor, and the marketing goals of your company.
To recap, you will receive a highly personalized service and a designated campaign manager who will help you to define the most efficient link-building campaign to be applied according to the budget involved.
Being that we have link-building customers in over 30 countries, all correspondences with your CM will be established by email and not by phone. This is the only way to keep a track record of correspondences and to circumvent the time zone factors involved. We guarantee a response to your inquiries/emails within 2 business days, in all cases.
Although email correspondence might be considered in some cases as “distant,” when it comes to link-building, it is the only efficient way to get the job done to avoid potential misunderstandings/miscommunications. However, we guarantee a highly personalized service and experience with your designated campaign manager.
The initial phase of development to define your link-building campaign strategy involves, on average, 20-35 hours in research, analytical work, and communication, thus explaining why a campaign set-up fee must be applied to each new campaign.
Please note that if you were to sign up for a 4-month campaign and then stop for a few months, then decide to continue again, a new campaign set-up fee would need to be applied. This is why we advise you not to interrupt an ongoing link-building campaign over the first year for an obvious financial advantage, aside from harvesting ongoing ranking benefits.
In other terms, each new job is subject to a $500 set-up fee due to the initial work necessary to be performed in order to include a link-building campaign on our active fulfillment schedule. No exception can be made.
There is no technical way to forecast precisely how long it takes to notice results. On average, a website starts benefiting from any given link-building effort after 3-4 months. However, this greatly varies according to the nature of the website, its keyword density factor, its current link popularity factor, and of course, importantly, its online seniority.
To illustrate the variables of link enhancement results and just to give you an example, a submission to a directory may take one month for inclusion, and then another 3-4 weeks before being picked up/indexed by major crawlers, and then an extra 30 days to draw any ranking benefit from such effort.
As the link popularity factor of a website increases throughout time, ongoing ranking benefits can be measured. Although a website cannot be successful in today’s internet context without link enhancement, it is not a process that generates results overnight.
You will notice steady improvement in results as your link popularity factor increases from one month to the next. Link-building is an ongoing process which is to be considered “an unfinished task”... Analogically, it is like gas for a car: you need to refill constantly to move forward. The price of your vehicle does not matter, as much as the cost of your monthly budget doesn’t matter. Since Google Technology uses your link popularity factor to define how “alive” your website is, link enhancement must be considered as a priority in terms of online marketing.
Whether trying to improve rankings or maintain an ongoing satisfactory online presence, link-building will start objectively showing results around the 4th-6th month of a campaign and deliver ongoing ranking improvements/benefits from one month to the next.
It is impossible to forecast the amount of links/one-way-links which will result from your campaign. In fact, it is not the amount of links, but the quality of the links which counts for ranking eligibility.
After working on your first month of link-building, whether you choose 15, 25, or 50 hours per month, we will be able at that time to guesstimate the amount of links which may result from any given campaign. Once again, such factor is impossible to forecast technically since it changes according to the amount of quality blogs and forums available for your line of industry, the amount of sites which will accept publication of articles, the complexity of the link-building strategy that we will customize on your behalf, etc., etc. The only thing you know when implementing a link enhancement campaign is the amount of hours that will be allocated to perform such work - the guarantee that it will be performed by one of our dedicated/experienced link-building technicians.
Once again, when it comes to link-building, it is not the amount of links, but rather the quality of the links, as well as the regular ongoing pattern of links being posted, which makes a difference. We are not a “bogus link farm from India” guaranteeing results based on astronomical links forecasts... We apologize in advance to the few legit SEO companies from Mumbai to Bangalore, but the amount of imposters in India diluting the relevancy of our services through irrational promises has led us to use such sarcasm when commenting on this subject.
Like every business online, you must have received these phony offers to receive hundreds or thousands of links overnight for a few dollars. Such approach consists of submitting your link material through automated software and posting links on numerous irrelevant websites which would not give you any ranking benefits, but in many cases, being that such websites are blacklisted from major crawlers, such automated massive link-building campaigns yield to detrimental results for your site. All our work is performed manually, and we only address our link enhancement efforts to reputable online platforms. Once again, all of our campaigns are implemented manually by qualified and experienced link-building technicians.
Link-building is highly quantifiable, and we can only guarantee that, according to your industry and the amount of hours involved in your campaign, we will strive to deliver outstanding results.
From our professional perspective, we strongly advise a 1-year campaign minimum, no matter what. However, since results start showing between the 3rd and 6th month, this is why we are offering a minimum of 4 months, since any less could not be considered as a valid test. We truly believe that in light of the quality of our services and the ranking benefits which you will receive from such efforts, you will keep up with your ongoing link-building commitment. As stated in FAQ #4, link-building is to be considered at all times as an “unfinished task”... To recap, a 4-month link-building campaign will definitely allow you to benchmark ranking benefits, but it would be irrational to discontinue the effort after such a short period.
As an SEO agency, we are more interested to spend our time working on defining the best options for a link enhancement strategy, rather than convincing someone that they need to increase their link popularity. In other terms, link-building is not the right online marketing approach for those who are still “riding on the cyber highway with training wheels.” This may come across as blunt or even rude, however, our services are only available to those online marketers who have done their homework and understand the necessity of an ongoing link-building commitment (regardless of budget).
In other words, should you embrace our 4-month minimum campaign, we vividly advise you to keep on going for 1 year, pending on satisfactory results.
Geo-targeted link-building is, in fact, the only way for a website to increase its ranking eligibility on specific markets, i.e., USA, UK, Australia, etc. We advise you to read an article posted on our site titled, “Enhancing Ranking Eligibility on Foreign Search Engines in English”.
Yes, you will receive detailed monthly reports. As stated throughout our site, link enhancement is a very highly quantifiable service, and you will receive detailed monthly reports accordingly. It is impossible to provide you with a standard report for your review since, once again, each link-building campaign is highly customized according to each website. However, we pride ourselves in providing comprehensive/detailed reports reflecting each step of development/action which has been implemented for any given month of your campaign.
Our link-building technicians are spread out mainly between Europe and the MENA region. And, no, we do not hire cheap staff in India nor in China. However, the location of our staff is irrelevant, since what counts is which IP address the links are posted from.
In fact, when addressing a link-building effort targeting the UK, links should be posted from multiple UK IP addresses in order to increase the link inclusion factor on quality sites. Most reputable blogs, forums, social bookmarking networks, etc., are programmed to analyze the origin of the IP address from which material is being submitted.
This is why we have numerous servers around the world and rent geo-targeted proxy servers. When posting links in the US, we submit from US IP addresses...when submitting to Australia, same thing...we have Australian IP addresses. We constantly rotate such IP addresses and ensure that they are “clean” (no red flag attached with major crawlers). The name of the game is to fake a real interaction, and this can only be done from using a high number of IP addresses located in the countries where the link-building efforts are being targeted.
Once again, when it comes to link-building, it is not the amount of links, but the quality of the links, how regularly such links are being posted, and, of course, from where these links are posted, thus explaining the necessity of having the right servers and the pertinence of the IP address strategy.
