7. What are search
Search engines spiders are computer
programs that the search engines send across the Internet
to gather information from the Web. They use the information
gathered to build their databases.
8. Where can
I view my search engine placement report?
Active Search Engine Placement 4U.com clients
can check their search engine keyword rankings with the Search Engine Placement 4U.com
online reporting system.
9. What should
I do if I get an error when trying to view my online report?
If you are getting an error please
contact customer support at 702-555-0157 or help@Search Engine Placement 4U.com.
10. How long
will it take for my promotion to show results?
It generally takes at least eight weeks for the search engine
spiders to find and incorporate sites into their database.
11. What can
I do if I am not showing good results after eight weeks?
After eight weeks of promotion time
you should take a look at your keywords to see which ones
are working well. This is not done automatically. We rely
on you to tell us which words are working for you and which
are not. Then we must get your authorization to change any
keyword. If you need any assistance analyzing your keyword
performance after the initial eight week period, please feel
free to contact the support department at 702-555-0157 or
help@Search Engine Placement 4U.com. If you
choose to replace any under performing keywords, an additional
six to eight weeks will be required for those particular keywords
to produce results.
12. Does Search Engine Placement 4U.com
make any changes that affect the way my website looks?
No. The coding changes Search Engine Placement 4U.com
makes do not affect the way your site looks. You can amplify
your search engine results by having your Webmaster make design
changes to your homepage. For instance, design practices that
negatively affect search engine placement include frames,
Flash animation, graphic text, and dynamically generated pages.
If you would like more information about these design issues
see the Traffic Post newsletter issue on Web Design No-Nos.
If you are an active client and would like our support department
to do a complimentary keyword phrase site design analysis
please send an email with one primary keyword phrase to help@Search Engine Placement 4U.com.
The design suggestions will give you advice on improvements
your webmaster can make to your homepage design.
13. What is
a Search Engine Entrance (SEE) page?
A search engine entrance (SEE) page is a one page version
of content taken from your site that is housed at a new Web
site address. To create a SEE page site we register a new
domain based on your keywords and upload the SEE page, the
Search Engine Placement 4U.com code, and the 280 attraction pages. If someone
finds the SEE page directly or through an attraction page
they will be automatically sent to your original site once
they click on any link on the SEE page.
A SEE page is usually created if the client's homepage is
dynamically generated or there are problems uploading to their
site. We have successfully built SEE pages for many clients,
and there is no extra charge for this service.
14. Do I really
need e-commerce on my site to make this work?
Yes, we strongly suggest you have
e-commerce on your site. Many surfers are using their telephone
connection to access the Internet. They must close their Internet
connection to call you. They are likely to move on to the
next site if you site does not allow them to fulfill their
15. Will the
Attraction Pages themselves get top placement?
Attraction pages are not designed
to place in the search engines. They occasionally do get top
placement (rarely). Attraction pages are designed to communicate
your keywords to the search engines and increase the popularity
of your home (index) page.
Why don't you have a strong relationship with the search engines?
A. There are two schools of thought when it comes to search
engine optimization. The first assumes that search engine
optimizations firms share similar goals with the search engines
and that the two should develop close relationships. The second
school of thought recognizes that the two have different sets
of goals that are often in conflict. The search engines' goal
is to provide the best possible results for the searcher.
Our goal is to get the best possible placement for our clients.
For this reason, Search Engine Placement 4U.com's basic philosophy is adversarial
to the search engines. We closely monitor their activities
and respond promptly to changes in their algorithms, but we
do not work directly with or for them.
might I not see increased hits after my site has gotten good
placement on the search engines?
A: If your counter is configured to detect only unique hits
it may not register hits sent from the attraction pages. Reset
your counter to count non-unique hits to be sure you get a
full accounting of the traffic coming from the Search Engine Placement 4U.com
Can I obtain a refund for my payment?
The work for all promotions begins immediately upon receipt
of a signed contract and funds are distributed the same day.
For this reason, refunds are simply not possible. Each of
our client agreements clearly states that no refunds apply.
Do you need FTP access to place the code on my Web site?
Yes, we need FTP access in order to place the code on your
index (home) page. We understand that your FTP information
is sensitive. Your information will be stored on a restricted-access
computer in a restricted-access location.
Your assigned technician can answer any additional question
you may have about FTP and what information we need to upload
the code to your site.
If for some reason FTP information cannot be shared with your
assigned technician then you can have your Webmaster upload
the code or we can build a Search Engine Entrance (SEE) page
at no extra cost and place the code there.
