Yeah, this sounds like another “fluff” article on SEO, but please let me explain. Pittsburgh SEO companies and also SEO companies in general (off-shore, hired marketing firms, other SEO gurus) are always telling you the best way to optimize your site is to hire them. Their expertise is beyond you and their promises are through the roof.
Pittsburgh SEO Companies want you to believe…
In fact, you may find other articles out there that tell you that what they are selling is a pack of lies. This is also not true. Every company can benefit by hiring somebody other than themselves to work some SEO magic.
So, whether you pick me to do some SEO work for you or another firm, keep in mind these 5 lies that I/these companies may shout as SEO gospel.
1. SEO will pave the way to success
You may run into Pittsburgh SEO companies that will tell you that SEO is the first step in finding future success with your business. This is simply not true. Though it is good practice and good discipline to create good structure for SEO, it is not the only piece of the puzzle.
2. SEO Company will get your site listed in 500 Search Engines
Oh come on, this article just got silly. 500 search engines? no way. How many do you personally use? Chances are…1…or 2 if you are at your parents house and they choose to use Bing. Let’s stay focused here. The SEO company in Pittsburgh or anywhere else should only be looking at getting listed in Google. PERIOD.
3. SEO Eliminates the need for …
So now that I’ve become bored of writing this article, it is time to get to the closing of the 5 lies that Pittsburgh SEO companies tell…yeah yeah, I know I only made it to…um…2 1/4. ADHD or something.
How do you generate organic SEO traffic without a Pittsburgh SEO company?
Easy. carve out time to also update your social media spaces. SEO is a different monster these days. The old ideas of link building, guest blogging and link farming don’t apply like they used to. SEO is all about making your content relevant and EASILY sharable. Word of mouth spreads faster than any Pittsburgh SEO firm could ever promise!
