Does SEO - Search Engine Optimization bring traffic to your site?
by Rudolf Faix Friday, May 29, 2015 8:43 AM

AlexaTo answer this question we take the service from Alexa, an Amazon company, which got founded 1996. This is the true pioneer in the world of web analytics and got the necessary experience over the years. How their data are collected and have to get interpreted is declared under the menu About Us on the Alexa website:

Alexa's traffic estimates are based on data from our global traffic panel, which is a sample of millions of Internet users using one of over 25,000 different browser extensions. In addition, we gather much of our traffic data from direct sources in the form of sites that have chosen to install the Alexa script on their site and certify their metrics. However, site owners can always choose to keep their certified metrics private.

Our global traffic rank is a measure of how a website is doing relative to all other sites on the web over the past 3 months. The rank is calculated using a proprietary methodology that combines a site's estimated average of daily unique visitors and its estimated number of pageviews over the past 3 months. We provide a similar country-specific ranking, which is a measurement of how a website ranks in a particular country relative to other sites over the past month.

Let us take a look at some actual ranking examples from Alexa (the ranking of the best sites can get found here):

#1 google.com
#2 facebook.com
#3 youtube,com
#15 linkedin.com
#26 bing.com
#109 nytimes.com
#173 forbes.com
#258 google.at
#327 google.com.ph
#1163 heise.de (a IT magazine publisher from Germany)
#1449 orf.at (the Austrian TV station)
#3894 golem.de (IT and gaming online news from Germany)
#5528 krone.at (an Austrian daily newspaper)
#10563 kurier.at (an Austrian daily newspaper)

If you take a look at all this sites, then you see that all this sites have a lot of content. The content is bringing the visitors and the site metrics are getting considered in the search results of the search engines. It does not help you if you make a site, optimize it for a few keywords and think that you get now a lot of traffic. If you have no content on your site, which is interesting for your readers, then they are faster away then they have been coming.

SEO helps you only in starting a website. If you are not bringing new information and make your readers interested, then your website will not perform. In such a case you can create back-links optimize for keywords and result will be that nobody will visit or revisit your site.That gives you a bad ranking and you can start from the beginning again, because you'll lose your ranking in the search engines.

We can see an example about such a result from a Skype communication, which I had today in the morning:

He: We have spent around $7000 for Data itself to run the processes but we went in total loss. So now we are mostly looking for process where the clients give the specific data

Me: The data, which you can buy, are already heavy used by other centers. Responsible for this is the data protection law in the traditional outsourcing countries

He: Yes, we use to get lot of duplicate leads looks like the vendor sale the same data to multiple centers. Just know somebody suggested us to generate our own data with by developing websites and taking SEO Help.

Me: You'll not get enough data from a website to run a call center. There are so many websites, which are never getting visited by someone. Promotion at the good websites will be very expensive. It will be only profitable if the payout very high, but there is another rule: "As higher the offered payout is as less sales will be done."

You can take a look at the ranking of my blog at Alexa and compare it with the unique visitors, which are visiting my blog:

Alexa status about blog.wwpa.com

Yesterday I have started a free service from geovisites.com, which is listing the unique visitors per country. The geovisites are running since yesterday morning. On the right site of geovistes is listed the full day.:

Screenshot GeoVisites.com

Do you thing that one from the 38 US visitors will drop his phone number? If you are lucky then 1 from 1000 will do it. You'll see at Alexa that 18 millions of domains, which are having fewer visitors.

He: yes.. now I understood the equation, it's difficult to achieve. We are currently running a Online Campaign for Drug and alcohol rehab which went online a month ago, and the SEO work was done by a professional still it didn't gave us any inbound call: www.dictionbreakfree.com

Me: Alexa says about dictionbreakfree.com: We don't have enough data to rank this website. You see, the seo work alone brings nothing.

Screenshot of the Alexa report about dictionbreakfree.com

That it is not necessary to register your site at Alexa is showing the example from one of my customer. He made only a website for having one. His customers are property management companies, with he has contracts. For this he made never a SEO or registered his site somewhere. The site weber-haustechnik.at exists already around 20 years. Even this site has a better traffic ranking then the above one with SEO:

Alexa report about weber-haustechnik.at

He: Oh God, i was having high expectations

Me: Seo is only search engine optimization. That alone does not bring visitors.

He: Sir i have found that when i look for process in Google search your blog is listed mostly on first page or second page ... so i think the quality of the articles also plays an important role in driving the traffic.

Me: Sure, the content makes the search engine optimization. Google is using similar data or the data from Alexa too.

He: I was not aware of that. We try to outsource SEO work to freelancers who were taking fewer fees. May be next time we should try with an expert who is good in SEO and content writing

Resume: Forget everything about SEO and tricking the search engines. If you like to get visitors coming to your site, then you have to write quality content about the topic of your website. Everything else is not more than a cat, which is hunting her own tail!.

If you are not permanently adding content to your website, then your website will be soon only a hidden secret in the World Wide Web. If you think you need to add only a few pictures and that is it, then you are wrong. Nobody is searching for pictures and pictures are not getting indexed by the search engines.

Tricking the search engines with optimizing the content for them, bring you only for a short time in front of the result list for the used keywords, but there is no guarantee that it brings you some visitors. As soon as they are changing their indexing algorithm you can get found as the last entry of a search result. Only quality content keeps you permanently in front and brings visitors to your site.

A website is like a store window - if the content does not change it will not attract customers.

Scammer: vertualpchelp.us - Priyesh Rao - iPhone & iPad Tech Inbound Calls
by Rudolf Faix Monday, May 25, 2015 2:37 PM

Vertual PC HelpThe people, which need tech support for their gadgets, are normally going to the shop where they bought it and ask for help. I really don't know how a tech support agent can give phone support for iPhone & iPad without having the device in front of me. Anyway if we take a look at the forwarded email, we see already that the provided links in the signature are not fitting to the description, While the provided sender email address priyeshrao@live.com is fitting with the description in the signature is the link of the email address leading to aniket@vertualpchelp.us. The written homepage in the signature is www.vertualpchelp.us and the link leads to www.virtualpchelp.com.

More interesting is where the calls come from? The calls are not coming from the sites www.vertualpchelp.us or www.vertualpchelp.com. Both sites are a big secret in the World Wide Web. No links are leading to these sites. Alexa has even not enough data for give a ranking for the site www.vertualpchelp.com. www.vertualpchelp.us has a Alexa ranking of 3,360,215. If I compare the site with my blog, then I have a much better ranking (actual ranking: 236,696). My blog has only around 300 unique visitors per day. From where the calls which are getting sold can come in this case?

At the website www.vertualpchelp.us we see the following addresses:

Address (U.S.A)
3422 SW 15 Street Suite #8696 Deerfield Beach, FL 33442
Phone: 813-602-5624
Fax: 813-436-8789

Address (India - Head Office):
101, Laxman Mhatre Rd., Dhaisar West, Mumbai - Maharashtra 400068
Phone: 750-647-9626

My opinion is that the U.S.A. address is only a mail forwarding address for making a better impression. In any case is the combination of the addresses, the reputation of the websites and the offer more than suspicious. The address provided at the website is not matching with the address provided in the domain registry. For all this reasons is the offer nothing else then SCAM.

Scammer Exposed

What they could do wrong, they did wrong: Ishita Choudhary - amigosoutsourcing.com
by Rudolf Faix Thursday, February 12, 2015 2:54 PM

Today I got an add request from Ishita Choudhary and as soon I have accepted her I got immediately an offer. In this offer has been written:

"We will be requiring your company profile for the verification process. If company profile is not available then please provide us any scan copy of your photo ID proof (Aadhar Card / Pan Card / Voting Card / Passport copy / Driving License) with your current profile."

I have been looking at her profile. There I found an agency picture instead one of a real person and only a Google email address. So she hides herself in the anonymity of the Internet. The result for me has been that she has something to hide. How she can even think in this case that somebody will send her a copy of any document. Everybody need to think about identity theft in this case.

She sent me afterwards the address of her homepage (www.amigosoutsourcing.com [2016-02-25: Link removed as the domain already not exists]). I checked first the registry data about scamadviser.com. The result has been:

Alert Result: The owner of the website is using a service to hide their identity
Alert Result: This website is 54 Days old
Alert Result: The website expected life (365 days) is relatively short.
Alert Result: The website appears to be less than six months old

Afterwards I have been looking at their website. There has been written an address. This seems to be a fake address, because nobody registers his website with an anonymizer service and writes afterwards his real address at the webpage. Doing this does not make any sense.

For a domain, which is 54 days old is the counter shown at their website with 2110 visits and 4195 page views very high. Alexa gives the site a rank of 5 566 540 and a daily page view per visitor of 2. So they have started their counters with an initial value of 2000/4000.

Nobody shall trust such a "company" as long as they are not building up their reputation. As it seems to be normal for them to lie, it would be very difficult for them to build up an online reputation. Even the sentence "Amigos info services started building the ways since 2012.Later converted into Amigos Outsourcing." can be a fake because Google did not find anything historical about "Amigos info services". Changing the name after a few months until 2 years operations make them more suspicious than trustful.

Result: For the case they are a real company then everything what they could do wrong, they did wrong until now.

My LinkedIn mail communication with Ishita Choudhary from amigosoutsourcing.com:

Rudolf Faix, February 12, 2015 03:35 (GM+1):

Hi Ishita

If you like to verify someone, then you cannot hide yourself in the anonymity of the Internet. I think more that you have a reason why you hide yourself behind a agency picture.

Take a look at my homepage at http://www.wwpa.com. There is listed what and at which condition we are working.

Unlike you, I do not need to hide myself and I can use my real name and my own picture in my profile.

Read first this: http://fraud-systems.wwpa.com/post/identity-theft.aspx and if you don't believe me than go directly to https://www.fbi.gov/scams-and-safety/common-fraud-schemes/identity-theft

best regards

Rudolf

One of the "brokers/consultants" is already afraid about his business
by Rudolf Faix Sunday, February 1, 2015 1:59 AM

A few days ago, I got at LinkedIn a comment from Richard T. at my post about making fair business between campaign brokers and call centers. Richard T. seems to be such a broker or consultant, which feels himself attacked by my posts. He seems to be afraid about losing his golden business. He calls himself to be a "Senior Accounts Executive at BlueStar Marketing".

He has written: "Fair Business" LOL,what planet are you from? Your evaluation of risk is shallowly determined.It only takes into consideration finance.The biggest risk I take in my dealings goes far beyond immediate financial risk.When brokering a deal I am risking reputation as well.My reputation is priceless.Whats fair is what ever you contractually agreed to.The word FAIR is very subjective Sir.When we negotiate a contract we are evaluating risk to reward and trying to find a settlement that works for both parties.Some times it just doesnt work.Trying to create a universal agreement based from your bias perspective is very cute but very naive in the real world.For what its worth,I do find your posts entertaining.I also think your proposal can be fair but you must remember that fair is subjective and unfortunately an oxymoron when placed besides business......."

It seems that he has a reason to hide himself in the anonymity of the internet. His domain bluestarmedicalsupply.com is hidden by a proxy service and his toll free phone number 1-855-328-2317, written at the homepage cannot get found by a reverse lookup.

alexa.com says about the bluestarmedicalsupply.com: We don't have enough data to rank this website.
worthofweb.com gives a value of $102 for the domain bluestarmedicalsupply.com
google gives for bluestarmedicalsupply.com a pagerank: 0/10
Google lists only 12 links to the site bluestarmedicalsupply.com. All of this links are only about valuing the site ranking in a different way. There is not one relevant link, which can be used for a reputation.


I did not find one positive or negative comment about Richard T. and his website bluestarmedicalsupply.com. Only his comment at my post here at LinkedIn destroys his own reputation and makes him untrustworthy.

The only question is now: About which reputation is he writing in his post? I did not find any reputation about him. The one recommendation, which is listed in his profile, can be coming from a good friend too.
