Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is investing time, efforts, and funds to be favorably indexed/ranked in the "organic", "natural", "free" search results on search engines.
SEO is premised on bringing the most relevant content for users of search engines. Therefore good applicable content is the most important factor. However, it is important to make sure your website architecture is built around this content.
Top Search engine algorithms such as Google have hundreds of SEO criteria. (Algorithm is just a fancy word for formula). There are on page & off-page search engine optimization (SEO) criteria, which are continually being updated or changed entirely.
Partnering with Internet Consulting Inc. ensures your search engine optimization is done right.
The opportunity cost for not achieving favorable indexing/ranking on the top search engines such as Google, Bing, Ask, and others is significant.
Once you start implementing SEO if it is not done right your site could be labeled as using "black hat" or spamming techniques and black listed. When on-boarding a firm make sure you hire search engine optimization (SEO) professionals that only use "white hat" techniques. Search engine optimization is a marathon, not a sprint.
If "black hat" techniques are used, your site might take temporary leaps in indexing/ranking but then be hit hard and drop from all rankings - which is hard to recover from.

A low price is not the best way to choose an SEO provider, the long-term costs for cheap but not good SEO significantly outweighs paying a reasonable rate and hiring the right SEO firm in the first place.
Rates range, but $175 per hour for a professional firm is a reasonable ball park rate - Internet Consulting, Inc. only charges $100 per hour. Click-here for a no obligation Internet Consulting, Inc. SEO consultation.
Here is a link to Google's Algorithm Change History. Below is a brief summary of some of the most important updates:
Google's RankBrain update is probably part of Hummingbird (which is Google's overall search algorithm). This update was significant because the keywords/phrases being searched do not have to be in the content that is favorably indexed/ranked if the content that is retrieved is well written applicable content about the topic.
Even though RankBrain and other "AI" updates for other search engines are able to bring up content without keyword matching, it is still important to make sure your website architecture incorporates the keywords/phrases. Such as updating "title tag" lines in your HTML coding, header tags, photograph and graphic file names, internal link structure including keywords, keyword density ration in body of text, and so on.
Hummingbird contains many parts, many of which any SEO internet firm you are thinking about partnering with to achieve your SEO goals must know. For example, "Panda", "Penguin", and "Payday" are designed to reduce nuisance usage or spam. "Pigeon" is designed to help improve local results (so persons searching the same terms in different regions might have different search results based on where they are searching from). "Top Heavy" is designed to lower pages that have many advertisements. "Mobile Friendly" is designed to better index/rank websites that are mobile friendly - especially from searches from mobile devices. "Pirate" is design to fight copyright infringement.
Quality content is one of the most important factors, ensuring your website architecture is built around your SEO terms is also critical, other SEO criteria include:
