Cheap VS Affordable SEO

I am going to start this post by telling you, Panda SEO Services offer affordable not cheap SEO!

What’s The Difference Between Cheap and Affordable SEO?

On my about page I give a little SEO history lesson, I talk about Pagerank and how the Google algorithm delivered the best search results. I say, “Lot’s of SEOs abused Google’s ranking algorithm and so SEO needs to be performed a bit differently now than it was back in the 90’s, Google have run a number of algorithm updates removing sites that abused their algorithm. Two of the most famous are updates Panda and Penguin. These updates mean the wrong types of links from the wrong types of content on the wrong types of sites won’t help your website and may even get you punished.”

I am amazed to still see people selling and buying really cheap SEO services like mass blog commenting and article directory submissions, I don’t offer mass blog comments or article directory submissions because I don’t believe they work anymore.

I Don’t Sell Cheap SEO

I am not saying thoughtful blog comments left on quality blogs have no SEO benefit because; I believe they do but blog comments are not a service I would offer to clients, I believe clients should find blogs in their niche and leave their own comments. Adding to the conversion on other peoples blogs can build traffic and fans for your own site if nothing else. I definitely don’t believe in submitting the same article to thousands of low authority article directories anymore, I think poorly spinning it would be even worse. I don’t believe in spinning articles at all, I believe a guest blog post on a real blog with real readers would be more beneficial than an article published on an article directory. Guest blogging is a link building method I still use and offer to my clients.

In this blog post I quote Matt Cutts “I just want to highlight that a bunch of low-quality or spam sites have latched on to “guest blogging” as their link-building strategy, and we see a lot more spammy attempts to do guest blogging. Because of that, I’d recommend skepticism (or at least caution) when someone reaches out and offers you a guest blog article.” If you order cheap guest blog posts you will probably be ordering the kind of guest blog posts Matt Cutts talks about.

I don’t sell Web 2.0 profiles or links from orphan pages on web 2.0 sites, I don’t create blogs on or Blogger just to add one page of spun content with a link in it (if you order 50 web 2.0 links for $5 this is most probably what you will be getting, it won’t benefit your rankings). I do sometimes obtain links from established web 2.0 blogs and I still find Hubpages to be effective, I can also help clients create tumblr profiles, etc.

What’s Affordable SEO?

I like to think that I provide affordable SEO for my clients. I try to be honest and provide full details of what I will be delivering, I find some SEO companies claiming to offer cheap SEO they provide a long list of stuff that will make no difference to the rankings of their clients. If you are looking for cheap SEO I would recommend you reconsider and look for a provider that offers an affordable SEO service instead.

Affordable SEO means SEO that fits your budget and provides the results you are looking for, in a realistic timeframe. For clients that require ongoing SEO I offer on-site optimisation analysis and implementation then I create quality and engaging content that is published on quality, relevant sites.
