The Rank for $ales Seal of Quality
Rank for $ales has instituted a seal of quality that we strictly adhere to for all of our clients, web sites. This seal of quality effectively protects all web sites optimized by us from ever being banned or penalized by any major search engine.

Accepted ethical practices
In this section we look at industry-accepted, standard SEO practices and technology that are either recommended by the major search engines or that these techniques and related technologies are what the industry and Rank for $ is using.

Unethical and unacceptable practices
Spamming or spamdexing a search engine is any practice that devalues the integrity and relevance of a search property's results. Any search engine that discovers someone using methods or technology that redicules their search systems or offends their sense of fair play or leads search engines to believe that the site owner has gained an unfair advantage over someone else is considered spam.

SEO myths and exaggerations
In this section, we will show you the five most common SEO myths in the industry. Some are almost as old as the Internet itself. Yet, Rank for strongly does not recommend any of the following five techniques.

         Meta tags
         Multiple domain names
         Doorway and gateway pages
         Resubmitting every week or every month
         Web optimization experts are too expensive

Spam and unwanted clutter in the engines
In an ideal and virtually perfect world, each search engine would produce the most relevant set of results for its audience. Unfortunately the world is not perfect, and some webmasters will attempt to trick search engines into listing their pages (instead of the most relevant pages) in response to a specific keyword search.

Knowledge Center - Get to know SEO

Why optimize a web site in the first place?
When anybody creates a web site, the very techniques and the structure of the site itself can have an adverse effect in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERP's). Many times, clients come to us with sites that, when they were developed, had only the site visitors in mind.

Google Page Rank
It's no secret anymore that Google ranks as the number one defacto-standard in the field of major search engines. In 2003, Google accounts for more than 85% of all Internet searches on a daily basis. In this section we will tell all you need to know about page rank (PR).

Get to know the importance of the robots.txt file. Such a small file, but so important to the rankings of any web site.

Content relevancy explained
When a human actually uses a search engine to find a specific product or service, the search engine looks at its index of the Web and displays a list of results. That list of results is in order of direct relevancy, with the most relevant results first. A properly optimized web site with relevant keywords and keyphrases will receive highly targeted traffic from serious prospective buyers.

Targeted visitors equals targeted buyers
Having traffic to a web site is one thing. But having targeted visitors, converting into targeted customers is completely a different matter. Rank for $ sometimes asks its new clients: "What would you rather have- lots of people coming and going, ie: passive visitors, OR active buyers, ie: people that will stay and end up buying your product or service? The answer is very clear. It's much better to target quality over quantity.
