Move over banner ads and pop-ups. Make room for search. More
companies doing business online find that the best way to reach prospective
customers is through their Web searches. After all, most consumers looking
to make a purchase online start with a keyword search.

A top 10 natural search ranking
for your company on a major search engine search can have a large impact
on site traffic. In fact, it can lead to as much as a 150% increase in traffic.
But getting a top spot can be a tricky business. It involves site structure
(e.g. frames is a killer), keyword development and placement, search engine
submissions (carefully timed so as not to classify your site as a search engine
spammer), and more.
Each step is an important part of the process. Just ask the business owner
from California whose sales came to a crashing halt when Google found out she
was trying to cut corners to get better rankings:
Play Nice with Google...or Else!
Search Engine Optimization services tend to comprise a wide range of capabilities. There are low end services that promise to submit you to 200 search engines for $50. The problem is that they usually get you classified as spam and then don't address the root issue - what are the right top 20-30 keywords and what needs to be done to your site to generate better rankings. Then there are SEO services that employ "doorways" and "cloaking," but end up getting you blacklisted from the search engines because these techniques aim to trick the search engine into thinking you have a valuable, content-rich site. On the high end, there are services that are priced at $100,000+; they provide the custom site analysis and coding that¹s needed, but for a hefty price.
Telesian takes a more cost effective approach that targets the top 30-40 keywords on the top 5 search engines, which account for over 90% of all search traffic. We provide you with all the custom analysis and recommendations needed to generate rankings on those engines. Over the years, our SEO methodology has regularly produced Top 10, Top 5, and Top 1, results for our clients..
"Outsourcing our search engine optimization work to Telesian
has been an excellent decision for us. We received immediate payback since
some of their initial recommendations enabled us to correct problems that
were causing significant loss of traffic to our site that were not known to
us. And their excellent reporting and very specific recommendations have enabled
us to significantly save time, resources, and dramatically increase traffic
to our site. Their expertise enables us to focus on what we do best - providing
high quality content on our web site - while they stay on top of the ever-changing
rules and relationships in the search engine community."
