We have received two calls from clients recently to ask about emails they received through the contact us forms on their websites.  The emails are from SEO “professionals” claiming that they have done a cursory analysis of the website.  Then we received this email ourselves this morning:

The Brazzell Marketing Agency website definitely comes up on the first page of Google’s organic search results when one searches our name or our main service category.  Receiving this contact form submission from “Best Internet Marketing Services” demonstrates that there is a chance, and probably a good chance, that the people sending you these emails are pasting the same thing into everyone’s contact form to see who bites.  Instead of rewarding this sort of behavior, the best response is to analyze your search engine referrals yourself.

So how do you see for yourself what your website is doing in search results.  The best approach is to study the visitor tracking for your website.  Two popular, powerful, and free options are Google Analytics and StatCounter.com.  Brazzell Marketing Agency leans toward StatCounter.  These visitor tracking services will tell you how many visitors you have and how they found your website.  They also tell you which pages on your website the person visited and a host of other useful data.  If Brazzell Marketing Agency built your website, we installed visitor tracking as a matter of course.  If you have forgotten how to access it just drop us an email.
