Common SEO Questions (FAQ)

Answered by Local SEO Company in Los Angeles, CA

What is SEO?

SEO is a short acronym for “Search Engine Optimization” & it refers to a number of different techniques performed on a website with the intention of having the website become found for keywords or terms that users search for on search engines such as Google, Bing, or Yahoo!

What is the difference between organic results & pay-per-click results?

The main difference between organic search results and pay-per-click results are best noted in the screenshot below outlining an example of what each are. Organic results are earned and could generate you most Return on Investment (ROI). Pay-per-click, also referred to as PPC or Google Adwords are a short term solution to drawing traffic to your website by directly paying Google a fixed price for certain keywords you are trying to go for. Again, this is a short term solution and the minute you stop paying Google is the minute leads stop coming in. Once you earn a result organically, it is yours to keep forever – a long term solution.

 Will I be on Page 1 of Google?

This is probably the most asked question in the world of Search Engine Optimization and the only feasible answer we can give you is: maybe. No SEO company could guarantee Page 1 results by any means. Companies that do may be using shady tactics that you should be very cautious of. Best practices for SEO involve “white hat” search engine techniques that are focused on increasing website traffic, not rankings that you have no direct control over.

What does SEO cost?

Services for SEO will vary from company to company & pricing will depend on numerous factors such as how much work is being performed each month of services provided. However, the experienced team of Dignisoft offer affordable SEO marketing packages starting at $249/month that will help your website* be found on the Internet.

Should I hire someone to do my SEO?

Hiring an expert, web savvy SEO professional can save you a ton of time trying to figure it all out on your own. Also, experience will vary greatly from person to person but there are certain guidelines that all SEO professionals should be following, as well as staying on top of the latest trends (pro tip: a great way to stay on top of trends in SEO are to follow both Brian Dean from Backlinko & Neil Patel).

How long does it take to see results from SEO services?

This is a subjective-based question because the word “results” could mean 1 year for some and 1 day for others. But based on our 10+ years of combined experience with websites & SEO, we’ve learned that SEO often will take anywhere from 6 months to one whole year before you start to really notice any significant impact in terms of website traffic.
