Here’s an interesting twist on the typical Money Order Scam. In this case, a potential customer used our general contact form and asked us if we could “handle website design for a new company” and also “if we accept credit cards?” We played along up until the scam was revealed and then turned the tables on the scammer.
It is a question I get again and again and again, from those with new sites as well as though with old sites that are less than SEO-friendly. A typical answer would be, “Well it all depends…” which is not far from the truth. With so many variables to consider including the site’s domain authority, on-page SEO best practices, off-page SEO factors as well as competing sites, one site can rank on the first page of Google faster than another.
During the marketing-planning phase of a company, one question is always presented: “Product- or customer-centric?” Of course, that’s easy to answer when your company is rooted and an expert in customer-centric marketing, and vice versa.
