Search Engine Optimization
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a web site or a web page in search engines via the "organic" or un-paid search results. Other forms of search engine marketing (SEM) target paid listings. In general, the higher on the page, and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search and industry-specific vertical search engines. This gives a web site a vital web presence.

One of the things they will say they will do is to submit your website to 1000s of web directories. This can be done automatically, is relatively easy and auick but in reality, it serves no useful purpose and in fact can harm your ranking. There are other scams related to search engine optimization out there and I'll deal with one below.
Companies that Promise to put Your Webpage Top of Google Search Results - Scam
I have, and friends of mine who have websites have got calls out of the blue from Search Engine Optimization companies claiming to be Google themselves or affiliated with Google in some way. The phone call usually goes something like this....
For €150 - €200 we will either put you top of the Google search results or on page one within 48hrs, something like that. THIS IS A SCAM. Absolutely NO ONE CAN GUARANTEE YOU a position at the TOP OF GOOGLE SEARCH RESULTS. You should should just hang up the phone, or if you are feeling proactive, take the name of the company and report them to Google.
What these Chancers are trying to flog you is actually a paid advertisement on Google (Pay Per Click - PPC). This is something anyone can set up and is free to do so. You just pay for the advertising afterwards based on what hits it drives to your webpage. Under no circumstances should you entertain these con artists.
We can of course set this up for you and manage it, or show you how to manage this yourself but we will never claim that what we are doing is something that it is not.
