Frequently asked questions

Answers to the most common queries. If you need extra help, just ask

Is there a minimum term contract?

We have a recommended minimum term on all SEO service packages of 5 months. Although we achieve results fast, if you leave after just one or two months you are yet to experience the full benefit of the ground work we put in. To grow and maintain ranking SEO should be considered a long term activity and this is when best results occur.

How long will it take to see results?

The speed at which you climb the results depends on many factors. If you have done no SEO work and your phrase is not overly competitive it can be within days. If you have a very competitive market (for example ‘credit card’) it can take much longer. For the fastest ranking we recommend you choose Sherpa Premium or Elite.

Who makes the content?

All articles, PDF’s, press releases and videos are made by our own specialist team. Images and photographs used in your campaign content is sourced either from our own original photography library or purchased for your project. If we require specialist content or logo’s your project manager will request those from you.

Are there any keywords that you cannot rank?

We cannot rank you for phrases already taken by another client. It would be unfair to rank 2 clients for the same phrase since only 1 can be the winner. Also there will be some phrases so competitive we just cannot guarantee increased rankings. If that is the case we will advise you. Lastly we do not accept phrases including the word “SEO”

How many links can I expect?

We do not sell packages by backlinks. Services that sell packages based on a number of backlinks may get tempted to produce low quality links using spammy tools. The primary feature that sets our packages apart is we focus only on quality content distribution. We hand prepare the core resources and this original content ‘sticks’ in the search engine longer.

Where is your team based?

SEO Sherpa is owned by 3W Media FZ LLC (Trading as Veravo) a Dubai based Search Engine Marketing business and has team members in the UAE, UK, USA and Philippines. The team has been hand recruited and trained by internationally acclaimed internet marketing experts and received over one year intense internal training before being assigned to our clients campaigns.

What are the log-in details for the accounts you create?

These log-in details are preserved as a private information to protect the anonymity of you and our other customers.

Where do the articles you create get submitted?

Articles will be submitted in high authority articles sites, web 2.0 properties and high page rank (PR 1 to PR 5) websites in our own portfolio.

Whose social networking profiles are used for social media postings?

We have access to over 1000 social media accounts. Post from these accounts are not made in your name are definitely not representing your business on your behalf. They serve as an third party endorsements of your website content.

Can you provide me a link to where I can see the links you have created to my website?

To check on the links we’ve created to your website, sign in at Google Search Console, click on “Traffic” in the sidebar, and select “Links to your site”. From there you can download a list of recent links.

When I checked at the position of my target keywords in Google, it doesn’t seem to match with the result from your report. Why?

Results will  fluctuate on a daily basis and are entirely unique to each searcher based on their location and browsing history. The results we report have been checked with a clear browser cache and randomized IP addresses to simulate a fresh search.
