Frequently Asked Questions
Q – Can Sun-SEO get me to the top of Google, and other search engines for anything?
A – We can get you to the top of Google, and other search engines for almost any search terms. However, for very popular, more generic search terms like “best car insurance company” we will not be able to get you to the top of Google, and other search engines. This is because the competition for these highly competitive, generic search terms is fierce. The companies that rank at the top of Google for these types of search terms have huge, multi-million dollar SEO budgets and can justify the expense. We can however, get you on the first page of Google and other search engines for a ‘long tail’ search term such as “best auto insurance company in Venice Beach”.
Q – OK, we’ve decided to hire Sun-SEO to do an in-depth analysis of our website and other digital assets, and also to fix any problem areas so we can show up on the first page of Google and other search engines, but what if we want to stay at the top forever?
A – Google and other search engines are constantly changing their algorithms, and the SEO industry is also frequently changing so we also offer an ongoing consultation service, which will give you the best chance to keep your hard earned rankings once you get to the top. While we cannot guarantee you’ll stay at the top once you get there, we do feel confident that our ongoing consultation service gives you the best chance to keep your rankings. Please contact us to find out more about our ongoing consultation service.
Q – Everything I’ve read about Sun SEO sounds good. We have decided to hire Sun-SEO to do an initial in-depth analysis of our website and other digital assets, and we will hire you to fix all the problems identified. Now we want to know what target keywords and/or phrases will be chosen that will get us to the top of Google.
A – Our Sun-SEO team will work with you and your staff to identify several target keywords and phrases that we will help you rank for. We will become essentially a virtual marketing partner for you and your business, brand or message, and we will be able to identify the best target keywords and phrases that closely relate to your business, brand or message, and any products or services offered. It will be for one or more of these identified target keywords and phrases that will rank you on the first page of Google. This will not be as simple as you presenting us with a list of keywords and phrases that you want to rank for, but rather Sun-SEO identifying a list of target keywords and phrases that we think you can realistically rank for.
Q – You say it could take up to 6-8 months to fully see the results of your work show up on the first page of Google and other search engines. Why does it take so long?
A – The reasons it could take up to eight months to see the results on Google and other search engines (once we start the SEO work itself) are because sometimes Google can take several months to fully index a website, especially if it is a large site and has many pages, and it can take some time to show up on the first page of Google and other search engines. Plus, depending on how large your site is, it could take our Sun-SEO team a couple months to do the work. Normally though, it will take a lot less time to show up on search rankings.
Q – Once we hire Sun-SEO, how much work will be required of my staff and I?
A – Sun-SEO will need to work with your company, especially at the beginning, to do things like identify target keywords and phrases and obtain the necessary information to enable us to work on your website and other digital assets (such as FTP passwords and user names). We will probably only need a few hours of your time, sometimes a lot less. This will generally be over a period of 1-2 months while we are doing the actual work.
Q – Can I just hire Sun-SEO to do the work on my website and other digital assets, then just sit back and not touch anything again?
A – Once Sun-SEO does the work of helping you get to the top of Google and other search engines, and we help you stay there, you will need to continue to publish compelling and engaging content, and keep your social media active and fresh, among other things.
Q – What if I want to do some of the work myself that is identified in the Sun-SEO in-depth analysis? Can I save money this way?
A – While we understand your desire to save money by doing some or all of the work we identify in our in-depth analysis, we do not recommend this. We think you would be most effective by doing what you do best, which is focusing on your business, and let us do the rest. Generally speaking if, after Sun-SEO conducts an in-depth analysis of your website and other digital assets, you choose to do some of the work yourself, then it is likely that we would require that we do another analysis to see exactly what has changed, and how it will affect the overall Sun-SEO strategy. We think this is redundant and would be a waste of your money, so that is why we don’t recommend it. However, depending on your circumstances and the level of work required, we are open for discussing whatever arrangement you feel is best for your business. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions.
Q – Can Sun-SEO work with my existing, or in-house SEO agency?
A – If you have been working with another SEO agency and they have not been able to get you on the first page of Google and other search engines for one or more of your target keywords or phrases, then we suggest you let them go and hire Sun-SEO as your new SEO agency. Most likely your existing SEO agency has been engaging in ‘black hat’ SEO techniques to try and game the system. These black hat SEO techniques do not work anymore, and Sun-SEO has never used them anyways. Your money is much better spent hiring Sun-SEO to fix any problems and get you to the top of Google, and other search engines, then spending more money to get less desirable results with your current SEO agency.
If you already have an in-house SEO team, then we recommend that you hire Sun-SEO to fix your problems and get you to the top of Google and other search engines as soon as possible so you can start getting the sales you deserve. Then we can re-train your SEO team in Sun-SEO tactics and strategy. This can be done online, through virtual meetings and webinars, or we can come to your place of business and train your staff directly. The first step is to hire us to implement a Sun-SEO strategy, and get you to the top of the search engines.

Q – How detailed is your in-depth analysis?
A – Every website is different, but generally we answer between 400-500 different questions in order to formulate a custom Sun-SEO strategy for your website, and other digital assets. At Sun-SEO we believe strongly in doing things right the first time. With the creation and implementation of Google’s new ‘Semantic Search’ it has become necessary for SEO firms to incorporate a lot more data into their strategies. We believe that the Sun-SEO strategy is the most comprehensive and effective strategy in the world of SEO. When we initially developed the Sun-SEO strategy we were surprised to have identified nearly 500 different questions that needed to be answered to create a very effective SEO strategy. This does create an enormous amount of work for our Sun-SEO team, but it’s worth it in the end. We love doing this work and seeing our clients get to the top of Google and other search engines.
Q – Wow, 500 different questions is a lot, and you only charge $999 (small businesses) for the initial in-depth analysis of our website and other digital assets. Do you even make a profit by charging this little?
A – We actually don’t make much of a profit on our in-depth analysis, because it takes a team of people generally 2-3 days of work to do the analysis. We hope that you hire us to fix the problems and help you get to the top of Google, and other search engines. We start making a little profit when we dig in and start to fix the problems and areas of concern after the initial Sun-SEO in-depth analysis. At Sun-SEO we really love what we do, and it makes us very happy to get our clients to the top of Google, and other search engines.
