Optimizing your website, as in Search Engine Optimization, is an investment in your business’ future and it’s an important part of Search Engine Marketing (SEM), which also includes Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising.
Benefits of SEO
Unlike PPC, when you stop doing SEO, your results do not just go away instantly. The improved rankings from SEO done properly could possibly last for years and is more cost effective than PPC. Other benefits are that it improves your websites searchability, meaning that it makes your website more likely to show up in search results when your business, product, or service is searched for by potential customers. In this way, you can make more money from your website than just putting up a website with no thought to SEO at the start or as an ongoing process.
White Hat SEO
Delphinium is what is called a “white hat” SEO company. What that means is that you don’t have to worry about outdated or spammy SEO practices on your site that could possibly get your site penalized by Google. By following the current best practices your site should do well with SEO into the future, making SEO a good investment of time and money.
Some SEO companies get results by using “black hat” or “gray hat” SEO. What that means is that they use SEO techniques that Google has deemed spammy, but that may have been standard SEO practice at one time. Some examples of spammy SEO are hidden text, keyword stuffing, and excessive and unnatural backlinks. Sometimes these techniques work, but when they do, the increase in rankings is usually temporary and the risk of getting a Google penalty is too high.
One way of spotting bad SEO providers is that they will offer you a guarantee of #1 rankings, but the thing is that no SEO provider can guarantee #1 rankings. The way these providers work is that they take your money, provide you with spammy SEO and leave you to take the fallout from Google.
Delphinium provides a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION. During this consultation, Delphinium will learn about your business and tell you about our process. We’ll discuss how we can help your business grow and talk about the best SEO plan based on your budget and your business needs.

Budget SEO Plan
Small plan is for small businesses wanting to get their feet wet in SEO or in industries with low-no local competition and with small budgets. You’ll get a customized plan of 6-7 hours of SEO per month.
You may have heard or read that you shouldn’t bother with SEO unless you can spend $750-$1000 or more a month or that a credible SEO company wouldn’t even consider you, but that’s not true. A lot of it depends on the size of the company, how many years they’ve been in business, their experience level, and the amount of online competition they have.
Not doing SEO at all does not make sense. Even one hour per week spent on SEO is better than none.

Better than Google AdWords (PPC)?
With AdWords, you have to pay to continue to be listed, but with SEO, even if you quit paying for it, your results don’t just go away. For instance, once you get a keyword ranking on page one in Google Search Results it tends to stay there, whereas you have to pay for every click with PPC listings and they are gone after you stop paying. Futhermore, studies have shown that people often skip PPC listings for unpaid search results.
What kind of results can I expect?
The effectiveness of any campaign depends on many factors. These include the age of your website and current ranking, not looking like you’re trying to spam the search results.
Local SEO compared with National SEO typically has faster results, especially for key phrases with low-moderate competition. It’s recommended that you give SEO 6-Months to see results, but that is for Local SEO. The recommendation for National SEO is 9-Months due to typically being harder to rank.
Ranking time depends often depends on competition. Sometimes it can take weeks or in the case of high-very high competition, months.
Do you offer a guarantee?
No reputable SEO company can offer guarantees. However, Expeditions knows that if we don’t provide results that you’ll go elsewhere.
What is the minimum commitment required?
Although you can cancel at anytime, it’s a good idea to give it at least 6 months to start to see results. If you are impatient to see traffic flow to your website as soon as it is up and running, you may want to consider PPC (pay-per-click) advertising, which tends to have a smaller ROI and only lasts for as long as you pay for the service.
Why should I continue SEO on a monthly basis after my site is ranking well?
Top rankings can change. Normally when a website makes it to the first page of Google Search results, it tends to stay there, but things do change, such as the addition of new competition. This could be from a new business in the area or from an existing business trying to outrank you.
Also, after you rank well for the initial set of keywords, it’s time to work on additional keywords and cities near you. The goal is to continue to increase traffic to your website. This will be traffic that is specifically searching for your services.
Continue with link building.
What are the terms of payment?
For new clients, once you’ve determined your plan you’ll need to make a down payment of at least 1/3 the monthly fee. Established clients with a good payment record with Expeditions can expect to see it on their next bill.
Blog SEO terms
Organic Results – Unpaid search results
Algorithms – the system Google uses to determine which sites rank for particular keywords. SEO’s that stay up-to-date make it a practice to know about algorithm changes.
Conversions – Increase in traffic or sales.
Bounce rate – the percent of visitors that immediately leave site. If your site is optimized well, it is attracting the people that are interested in your services and are less likely to leave your site as soon as reaching it.
<h2>Can I Just Do It Myself?</h2>
Sure you can, but you may not get the results you want. Learning SEO is a huge time investment. Time that will take you away from growing your business in ways that you already know how. SEO is also constantly evolving to keep up with changes that Google makes in the algorithm that it uses to determine a websites ranking in search results. Using outdated practices will have no effect in rankings or, worse, get your site penalized and kicked out of the search results altogether.
It’s also important to continue monitoring your rankings and continue with link building.
