Frequently Asked SEO Questions

Discover frequently asked questions about SEO services from MRLA Media. Learn how our professional techniques can boost your website's visibility, drive organic traffic, and elevate your online presence.
Can you explain SEO in a nutshell?
SEO, short for Search Engine Optimization, revolves around obtaining organic website traffic and achieving high rankings in search engine results. This means driving traffic without relying on paid methods like pay-per-click ads. SEO encompasses various strategies, such as keyword-centric content creation, establishing a robust social media presence, and adapting to evolving search engine algorithms. As search engines continuously update their algorithms, SEO practices and strategies need to evolve to ensure ongoing effectiveness.
What is the average cost of SEO services?
Ahrefs reveals that businesses typically invest an average of $500 to $1,500 per month on SEO services from agencies/freelancers, while experienced SEO agencies charge an average retainer of $3,648.28 per month. According to Glassdoor, if a company were to hire an in-house SEO employee, the average salary would be $57,691 per year plus benefits. At MRLA Media, our seasoned team boasts decades of experience in delivering exceptional SEO services. We take pride in offering a thoughtfully priced monthly retainer that ensures optimal value for our clients.
Is it true that SEO is the more desired marketing campaign service?
Every year, companies spend more than $79 billion combined on their SEO services. SEO is the most desired marketing service due to its unmatched potential for driving organic, targeted, and sustainable traffic to websites. By optimizing a website's visibility and rankings in search engine results, SEO helps businesses increase their online presence and attract valuable leads. Compared to other marketing tactics, SEO offers long-term benefits, cost-effectiveness, and the ability to target users actively searching for relevant products or services. Furthermore, as the digital landscape evolves, SEO remains a crucial strategy to stay competitive and maintain a strong online presence, making it the go-to marketing service for businesses across various industries.
Do we need enough content on our website first?
Before we can start providing SEO services for your website, we need to analyze it to determine if it meets the content requirements. Ideally, each page you want to optimize for SEO should have around 300-400 words.
Can you explain what link building is?
Link building is an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) strategy aimed at acquiring hyperlinks from other websites to your own site. These hyperlinks, also known as backlinks, act as "votes of confidence" from other websites, indicating to search engines that your content is valuable and trustworthy. Link building is an essential aspect of off-page SEO and plays a significant role in determining your website's authority, visibility, and search engine rankings.
How does blogging help with SEO?
Blogging plays a pivotal role in enhancing SEO (Search Engine Optimization) by offering numerous benefits that contribute to better search engine rankings and increased organic traffic. First and foremost, regularly publishing fresh and relevant blog content keeps a website active and updated, enticing search engine bots to crawl and index the site more frequently. By strategically incorporating targeted keywords within the blog posts, websites can improve their chances of ranking for specific search queries, attracting relevant and valuable traffic. Furthermore, blogging provides ample opportunities for internal linking, aiding search engines in understanding the site's structure and content hierarchy. Valuable and well-written blog posts also have the potential to attract external backlinks from other websites, demonstrating authority and credibility to search engines. Additionally, engaging and informative blog content can lead to increased dwell time and improved user engagement, further signaling to search engines that the website provides valuable content to its audience. All these factors combine to boost a website's overall SEO performance and visibility in search engine results pages.
Does SEO take a long time to show results?
The timeline for achieving desired SEO results depends on various factors such as your current website status, previous SEO efforts, and competition levels. For a new website targeting competitive keywords, it may take around 6-12+ months to achieve significant first page rankings. Throughout this period, you can expect a gradual and consistent increase in leads and traffic, with major successes occurring once you secure a position in the top half of the first page.
What happens after I stop my SEO campaign?
SEO can be likened to a fitness journey. Just like working out consistently for 24 months results in a great physique, even if you take a 6-month break, you'll maintain a good level of fitness. However, over time, your SEO results may decline, and you may need to start hitting up the gym again.

Similarly, our SEO strategies focus on delivering permanent and long-term outcomes. Yet, it's possible for your competitors to surpass your rankings over time. If this occurs after your campaign concludes, our dedicated SEO team is here to assist you. Just reach out to us, and we'll guide you through the necessary steps to regain your competitive position.
I heard that SEO is dead. Is that true?
SEO is far from dead because search engines like Google continue to dominate the online landscape, serving as the primary gateway for users to discover websites. Ignoring SEO means missing out on valuable organic traffic and potential customers. Since Google heavily relies on SEO signals to determine website rankings, declaring SEO dead would imply that Google's search engine itself is dead.
What is white-hat SEO?
White hat SEO refers to ethical and legitimate techniques and strategies used to optimize a website's search engine visibility and rankings. It focuses on following search engine guidelines and best practices, aiming to improve a website's organic traffic and user experience. White hat SEO methods typically include creating high-quality content, optimizing website structure and metadata, building relevant backlinks, and engaging in proper keyword research and optimization. These tactics prioritize long-term success and sustainability, ensuring compliance with search engine guidelines and providing value to users.
What is black-hat SEO?
Black hat SEO refers to unethical and manipulative techniques used to improve a website's search engine rankings in a way that violates search engine guidelines. These tactics prioritize short-term gains and exploit vulnerabilities in search algorithms. Black hat SEO methods often involve keyword stuffing, hidden text or links, cloaking (showing different content to search engines and users), link farming, and other deceptive practices. While these techniques may yield quick results, they pose a high risk of penalties, including being banned or penalized by search engines. Black hat SEO is strongly discouraged as it undermines the integrity of search engine results and can have long-lasting negative consequences for a website's online presence. MRLA Media will NEVER perform black-hat SEO tactics, and stay away from any agency or freelancer that will perform black-hat SEO services.

A fresh website launch for an IT consultant company in Los Angeles

"I recently had the pleasure of working with MRLA Web Design. They exceeded all of my expectations. From the very first consultation, their team took the time to listen to my needs and preferences, and they were incredibly patient and accommodating throughout the entire process.

Their design work was top-notch, and they managed to capture the exact look and feel that I was hoping for in my website. They also paid close attention to the user experience, ensuring that the site was intuitive and easy to navigate.

But what really set them apart was their level of customer service. They were always available to answer any questions I had, and they provided timely updates throughout the design process. Their professionalism and attention to detail made me feel confident that my website was in good hands.

Overall, I am thrilled with the outcome of my website and I would highly recommend this web design service to anyone in need of a professional and reliable team to bring their vision to life. "

"Johnny has been instrumental for my startup business. He showed me how we were doing very poorly with SEO and within a month we have seen real results that show good progress. He’s very responsive and answered all my questions throughout the entire process. I’ve even referred him to several of my friends! Thank you MRLA!"

Delivering results with social media ads

"Our goal was simple. To increase our brand awareness and drive more subscribers to our Youtube channel. We’ve worked with Johnny on a strategy, and concluded that Reddit was the best platform to run paid ads on due to the large crypto community. We now have an active campaign with MRLA Media, and we are gaining on average 100 subscribers a day due to the incredible marketing strategy implemented by Johnny. He takes care of everything while we sit back and focus on what’s important with our channel."

The help that was needed to launch a child care website

"Johnny has truly been amazing with helping me create such an incredible website, something that I have been wanting to do myself for the past few years but have never gotten to it. I’ve always thought that making a website is time consuming but just never knew how to start and where to start. But creating a website is actually harder and more time consuming than you think! It’s not easy at all but Johnny really made it a breeze for me, working with me day and night through each step and was there for me every step of the way. He made the whole process seamless and really created a dream come true by piecing each piece to my puzzle. He started from scratch and now we have our own website. He walked me through every single step and was always there to answer my questions and made sure to not overwhelm me. It was a scary process but then soon it became fun for me as well. It’s just so happy for me as a business owner to witness the website come together as a whole! It has been such a great pleasure working with Johnny and I highly recommend him to anybody who is looking for a professional website to be built! He did such a wonderful job and I can’t believe how quickly everything came together. Johnny has all the tools, is knowledgeable, and fun to work with! It’s hard to find someone you can trust nowadays!"

From a networking mixer to a headshot session

"Johnny La is the kindest photographer you'll meet. Hands down.

I was fortunate to have met Johnny at a Networking mixer at USC. I got his business card from and knew right away that I wanted to work with him.

I contacted Johnny not long after for new actor's headshots. Even before the day of the shoot, he was always more than willing to answer the million and one questions I had for him. I sent him photos of potential outfits and he gave me feedback and provided me all the details & information I needed prior to the shoot.

I get pretty nervous in front of the camera, but on the day of the shoot, Johnny's friendly nature and silly methods to calm me down were quite helpful! Right away, he makes you feel as if you're old friends. I dread awkwardness, but I felt comfortable through the entire process. Additionally, he is more than willing to take as many shots needed until you're satisfied with your look.

After the shoot was over, he sent me all the files of my photos the same day so I could choose which looks I wanted him to edit. In just a matter of days after I had chosen which photos I wanted, Johnny send me over the final, edited photos, and they look great!

TL;DR: Looking for a photographer to take your headshots? Contact Johnny La ASAP!"
