SEO Agency Canberra– Are you tired of wasting money?

Tired of wasting money on SEO? Searching for a good SEO Agency in Canberra is actually possible once you remove the smoke and mirrors.

Internet Marketing Experts Canberra

Everyday someone tells me their experience how they have put in a small fortune on failed SEO campaigns. They ask exactly what Internet Marketing Experts Canberra will do any differently as an SEO Agency. Is it just going to be even more of the same?


The issue is an SEO Agency doesn’t really want you to understand the secret formula to getting those keywords ranked. Exactly why you may ask? The answer is simple because if you learn how little they really did for you each month you would definitely cancel your contract and go elsewhere, this is what I call the game of smoke and mirrors.


Does this seem familiar? ‘Well it requires time to get keywords onto the first page’ or ‘Those keywords are awfully competitive so we will focus on this phrase because a little traffic is far better than none, right?’ or ‘we do loads behind the scenes to make sure your existing keywords stay where they are and don’t go down on the page’ or ‘backlinks are no longer needed’.


Each month you get a report demonstrating how your keywords are going, and month after month nothing at all seems to happen. You can’t get the keywords you want because they are too hard to get.


So what to do if you think your SEO Agency in Canberra is putting to use the good old ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ trick to keep you pouring money down the drain on a second rate SEO campaign?


Here is my sure fire way to get rid of the ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ from your SEO Agency in Canberra;




  1. Ask to see an in-depth report of what on page work has been done in the month. This means modifications to Meta Descriptions or fixing on page errors etc




2. Demand to see a daily or weekly report of what off page tasks are completed for your web site each day. For instance you want to see a list of the following items each day or week;


a.Social Bookmarking

b.Web Directory Listings

c.Classified Ads Posted

d.Ping Submissions

e.Local Directory Listings

f.Q & A site posts

g.Blog commenting


Be Advised! This line of questioning will cause almost any SEO Agency in Canberra to squirm. Likely you will get a few responses;


  1. Well we don’t really give our clients that information.
  2. We just send you a monthly report to gauge the results around here that’s all that matters.
  3. Well considering the penguin update a few years ago all of that off-page stuff is not of any SEO value.
  4. We only create first class links that’s why we only do very few every month.
  5. If you do too much off-page work you will definitely get penalised by Google
  6. We do not use those spammy/blackhat methods.


Be assured when you request something more from your SEO Agency just like the list mentioned above if they respond happily and furnish you a detailed list of all the work they have done for you in the past in detail link by link then you are almost certainly onto a good SEO Agency. Even so if they pass my first test then there is just one more test. How much do they really do for you each month? Any decent SEO Agency in Canberra will proudly tell you the number of links they build for you each month. Ensure that it seems like a whole lot.


Lets say you are spending $1,000 per month with your current SEO Agency?

This is the kind of figures you should be seeing every month.


a.Social Bookmarking x 20 per day

b.Web Directory Listings x 10 per day

c.Classified Ads Posted x 10 per day

d.Ping Submissions x 10 per day

e.Local Directory Listings x 2 per week

f.Q & A site posts x 1 per day

g.Blog commenting x 1 per day


That’s a total of over 50 tasks everyday that should be getting provided for your website. Remember great websites that rank no 1 in Google, have 10,000 back-inks to their site.


Just a word of caution, if you are simply not mindful and use a trusted Australian company you can achieve high numbers of links which are all spammy and will certainly cost you eventually with Google penalties, ensure that your links are using reputable sites, high PR (Page Rank) etc. There are loads of Indian companies that promise big volumes, but they will devastate your site in a few short months.


In conclusion, if you are paying some SEO Agency in Canberra every month, don’t be afraid to ask for a breakdown of tasks and activities carried out for you each month. Don’t fall for the smoke and mirrors it gets pretty old pretty quick.


At Internet Marketing Experts Canberra we pride ourselves on transparency and educating our customers so they know exactly what they are getting for their month-to-month spend. Imagine having an SEO Agency that supplied you with detailed report of every action taken for the month, not just a rankings report?
