Frequently asked questions
Do you promise to get my site listed #1 on Google?
Can’t make any promises. Ranking of websites is done by Google, and not OneTechGirl. No one can promise the top of Google because the search engines determines that.
How long will it take my website to get indexed and ranked?
Any website can get indexed within a day or two, but ranking is another story. It depends on several factors including age of the domain, past history of the website, content quality, and keyword competitiveness. A well optimized website typically shows significant improvement in ranking in around 2-3 months.
Will my ranking stay on top forever?
Google tweaks its algorithm very frequently and releases major updates 2-3 times a year. All these changes, coupled with the progress made by competing websites can impact your ranking. A frequently maintained website has a much better chance of keeping their ranking intact for longer periods.
Do you use SEO tools?
Yes, we use a wide variety of free and paid tools including MOZ, Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tools, AHREFs, Screaming Frog and several others tools for data collection and analysis.
Are all the SEO done with white hat techniques?
Yes, of course. Black hat SEO techniques may show some results in the short term, but can prove disastrous when a red flag is raised against your website. You can lose all your ranking, or worse, get de-indexed from Google. All SEO we implement on your website strictly follow the norms laid out by leading search engines.
Apart from Google, do you also optimize for other search engines?
Over 90% of the search happens on Google, so our priority naturally is to focus on Google. However, we are well updated with developments happening on search engines like Yahoo and Bing.
My website was recently banned from Google. Can you help?

What are your SEO engagement models?
Most of the engagements are on a fixed price model, with a minimum period of 6 months. We have also worked on milestone based payment and one-time-fee consult models. Please share your specific goals and we can suggest the best suited model.
Do you outsource SEO tasks?
No, we don’t. We have a small team of experienced Web Developers, SEO specialists, Graphic Designers and Branding specialists.
Do we have to sign a contract?
Apart from the project scope approval, there is no contract you are bound with. As SEO doesn’t show results overnight, we typically ask clients to be patient for at least 6 months. Our billing is done every month end and the engagement can be called off at one month’s notice.
