SEO Startup Tips
A startup website needs to distinguish itself from its competitors while also promoting its value to its potential customers. Most WordPress themes nowadays are built with busy sliders on the homepage, but the truth is an enticing homepage with attention to detail isn’t as important as a clear message about what your website is about.

The new face of the Internet requires at least a basic SEO strategy when it comes to developing your business. Being relevant in search is important and can’t be overlooked.

The problem is too many Startups cut corners with getting links. You can easily find the scum of the internet by searching for affordable SEO deals in Google, but Mike Patch from Optimize Dude warns us that shady Cheap SEO Packages can be more harmful than they are worth. He talks about how Fiverr is the primary resource for a lot of these packages. A company will take your money and then hire shady link blast from Fiverr for cheap. They are essentially upselling an inferior product at ten times it’s value to you. So you’re not only paying for useless SEO work, you’re getting ripped off in the process. The worst part is that even if you do see some early benefits from link blasts, the lasting effect will hurt the chances of your website in the long haul.
