Choosing an Albuquerque SEO Company

How to find the Best SEO.

Choosing a SEO Professional in Albuquerque, NM?

Looking for a Honest SEO?

Finding the RIGHT SEO Company is vital to your business's online success. Choosing an SEO service to represent your company's website is an important decision and can be a difficult process. Here are a few key factors to keep in mind while you make a decision.

Is this SEO company local?

There are a lot of SEO companies claiming to be "Local Albuquerque SEO Providers" when in fact they are NOT local at all. Just because a business's name has Albuquerque in it, does NOT mean they are located in Albuquerque or even New Mexico!
Digital Key Design is based out of Rio Rancho, NM with office locations in both the West Side of of Albuquerque and the Down Town area. We meet with all of our clients face to face on a monthly basis.

Can this SEO company get Results?

Everyone claims to be great when they are asking for your money. It's important to take a look at some past work and verify actual search engine optimization success.
Digital Key Design has several successful local Albuquerque SEO campaigns as well as clients ranking in top spots on a national search level.

Is this SEO Provider easy to work with?

Search Engine Optimization marketing should be a collaborative process between the business and the vendor. Making your SEO campaign personal to your company helps you to stand out from the crowd.
Digital Key Design's SEO process is designed to incorporate your business's unique identity and build on your natural strengths. Our SEO team is flexible and easy going, always putting the clients needs FIRST!

Is this SEO Service Reputable?

The rapid increase in demand for SEO and Online marketing services has opened the flood gates to all kinds of Schemers, Scam Artists, Black Hats, and SEO snake oil salesman. We personally get at least 1 email every week claiming to get us "Top Google Rankings for Only $49.00" or something of the like. Unfortunately most of these companies are based "Off Shore" and will take your money and run, Buyer Beware!
Digital Key Design's owner is an Ambassador with the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce and frequently volunteers his free time to help out in the community. We offer 100% satisfaction guarantees with all of our services. If you are unhappy for ANY reason, we will do what it takes to make the situation right!

What does the SEO Contract say?

Make sure you know what you are getting into before you sign the dotted line! Many SEO service providers lock their clients into Lengthy Contracts with Steep Buy Out fees.
Digital Key Design has a minimal 6 month SEO contact, which we feel is the minimum time needed to implement a successful search engine optimization campaign. At the 6 month mark our service rolls into a month to month agreement. At this time we will evaluate your website's success and adjust our strategy accordingly.

Facebook Promoted Page Likes

Promoted Pages Ad Overview

New Facebook Promoted Page Likes makes it easy for local businesses to run an ad. No copy needed, only a address and a profile pic. This new Facebook ad option is set to run on a daily spend limit for a specified time frame.

Watch the video and let us know what you think.

Text Transcription Below

Hello this is Victor with Digital Key Design, and I wanted to talk to you today about a new option Facebook has for you to purchase ads. Its call promoted page likes. What it is, is an ad that will show up in the news feed on your phone or on a computer. So if you are looking through your stream, you might see Digital Key Design on there and you can go ahead and press like and like it, and it will say promoted. So it is a new way to get likes, to like your page, and a new way to build your brand. So this is a pretty cool feature in that it is showing up on mobile phones in the news feed. It's not like a promoted post where you say "Hey go check out this special offer.", or "Like this Post." They are actually liking your page so you can keep these people engaged for longer than something like a promoted post. Now who these are targeted for and what they are really designed to do. Facebook was really trying to look here and set them up to work for the local businesses. So in order to qualify for this, your business has to have a location listed. So you have to have a physical address and you have to have a profile picture. Also some... depending upon how you set up the page, like if you set your page up like a blog and then you grew it to a business, you may have to go in and change that, because if you are set up like a blog, it won't let you do it. So once you have a location set up, you can go into your ads management screen inside Facebook. Then you can go ahead and setup a daily budget and then run a promotion for a set number of days. So maybe you choose $10 to run for 7 days, and so you would spend 70 bucks. This can really, really be good to grow the engagement on your page and grow your fan base. That way you can continue to use social media to drive either customers to your website, to your actually business, or just to spread word kind of about the special things that you are doing. Once again this is Victor with Digital Key Design. Go ahead and give the Facebook page likes ad a try and let us know how it comes out. Leave a comment below thanks.

Penguin 2.0 - 4, Are you Ready?

Google Penguin Refresh Coming...

Google confirms that within the next few weeks we will see a major update to the search algorithm. Google internally is calling the coming update Penguin 2.0 as they feel it is going to be a major update to Penguin where as the previous we not as significant and should be labeled as 1.1 and 1.2. However to keep all these Penguin updates in order and easily tracked the folks at Search Engine Land will be referring to it as Penguin 4 .This coming Penguin update will be the fourth total Penguin update.

 All I know is that if Google is calling it 2.0, it will be BIG! This means that all those spam linked to sites that still rank in the tops spots may drop a few ranks, or they may drop completely out the SERPs. Only time will tell.

This is also a perfect opportunity to reinforce the idea that as SEO's and Online Marketers we need to step up our game. Stop trying to trick Search Engines and make our websites and content valuable to the searchers. This is what the searchers want and that's exactly what Google wants as well. I'm sure the disavow link tool will be in heavy use after the refresh so you may want to get a jump on things and be proactive. You may just be able to dodge a Penguin shaped bullet!

Digital Key Design Blog Upgraded to Google+

I just upgraded the Blog to be linked with the official +Digital Key Design Google+ page. All posts will now be posted by the Author +Cuyler Pagano (me) rather than the previous Digital Key Design profile. Not a huge difference but one worth noting.

The major differences:

1. I can now link directly to Google+ pages and profiles, as above.
2. My Google+ Authorship tags will be added to any posts automatically.
3. I can add new Authors and guest bloggers and then easily attribute the post to them via G+.
4. All comments and shares are displayed at the bottom of each post, making it easier to interact.
5. All posts are optionally shared with followers and everyone in my circles.

I recommend you make the switch for your business blog if it is hosted through blogger. These changes don't seem significant but I can assure you these small tweaks will have lasting effects on the way the social community interacts.
