It appears that Network Solutions, the domain name registrar, is now in the search engine optimization. They have a page guaranteeing top search engine results or your money back.
Here are the various plans:
- You can pay $1800 and get no guarantee to rank 10 keywords well
- You can pay $2800 to submit 20 keywords of which 5 are guaranteed to be top ten
- You can pay $3800 to submit 30 keywords of which 10 are guaranteed to be top ten
- You can pay $5800 to submit 50 keywords of which 20 are guaranteed to be top ten
There is fine print, of course....
- No flash sites
- No adult keywords
- No hosting service downtime allowed
- No changes can be made to the site
- Top ten rankings in any of the 12 search engines within 10 months from completion date
- And more
If you look at the process they laid out for their top 10 search results plan, you can see a bit more. For example, they recommend their "Link Building Service package and/or an optimized Press Release" with their "Top 10 Search Results package." So right there, we see that link building is not included in the main package. They conduct keyword research and a site analysis, they write the content for you, they submit to search engines (I don't know why), they make links from your current home page to your new "optimized pages," they do reporting and then watch.
I am honestly considering giving it a try, just to see the quality of work. Should be fun. Any ideas for a site topic?
