Search engine optimization is one design strategy CDG uses for website success.
Three little letters that often mean the difference often between profit and loss: SEO is an acronym for "search engine optimization" or "search engine optimizer." Deciding to use SEO is a big decision that, done properly, can improve your site and save time. Unfortunately, you can also risk damage to your site and reputation, if SEO is misused. That is why you need the expertise and experience of Creative Design Group to do the best for the least to maximize hits while minimizing costs.
Search engine optimization is one of the most misunderstood areas of marketing online and those involved in the process on the internet are not always the most truthful or ethical. If you are guaranteed a top 10 Google placement by an SEO group, run away. They are making promises they cannot keep. Our promise is to maximize your website's search-friendliness and then take all appropriate action to maximize your search success. Ask our clients: SEO works and so does CDG. Do not turn this all-important choice over to a stranger or novice because more harm can be done than good.

If you're thinking about hiring CDG as your SEO, the earlier the better. A great time to have the work done is when you're considering a site redesign or planning to launch a new site. That way, you and CDG can ensure that your site is designed to be search engine-friendly from the bottom up. However, CDG is also very good at improving an existing site, so let us help you use the best strategies for online success.
While CDG can provide clients with valuable services, some unethical SEOs have given the industry a black eye through their overly aggressive marketing efforts and their attempts to manipulate search engine results in unfair ways. Practices that violate Google's guidelines may result in a negative adjustment of your site's presence in Google, or even the removal of your site from our index. Here are some things to consider:
- Be wary of SEO firms and web consultants or agencies that send you email out of the blue.
Amazingly, we get these spam emails, too:
"Dear 4cdg.com, I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..."
Reserve the same skepticism for unsolicited email about search engines as you do for "burn fat at night" diet pills or requests to help transfer funds from deposed dictators.
- No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google.
Beware of SEOs that claim to guarantee rankings, allege a "special" relationship with Google, or advertise a "priority submit" to Google. There is no priority submit for Google.
- Be careful if a company is secretive or won't clearly explain what they intend to do.
Ask for explanations if something is unclear. If a SEO creates deceptive or misleading content on your behalf, such as doorway pages or "throwaway" domains, your site could be removed entirely from Google's index. Ultimately, you are responsible for the actions of any companies you hire, so it's best to be sure you know exactly how they intend to "help" you. If a SEO has FTP access to your server, they should be willing to explain all the changes they are making to your site, and they should be able to tell you in a way that you can understand.
