Get Answers to Your SEO Questions

We understand that every Web site has its own unique set of circumstances. All industries have a different level of competition, and the ideal search engine optimization strategy from industry to industry may not be the same. To complicate matters even further, two sites competing for the same sets of keywords might have a completely different path to SEO success depending on what they have (or have not) done previously to optimize for Google and the other search engines.

If you think you know what your site needs but would like some confirmation, or if you have a technical question that is specific to your Web site, please feel free to contact us and we'll help you out. We can only answer a few questions at no cost, but hopefully it will be enough to get you on the right track. Please submit your SEO question here.

Can keyword-rich URLs help my rankings?
The short answer to this question is yes, but the real answer is much more complicated. While we believe that having a keyword in your URL might be a small ranking factor, the more significant benefit comes if/when you are able to obtain external links to your intended landing page...
