Nowadays, it is only just a matter of how fast you can achieve the results that you want. The field of SEO has grown so much over the past few years that you can find many companies that offer SEO in Cebu, Davao, and especially Metro Manila.
Despite the large amount of information on SEO that anyone can easily find online, there are still SEO myths and misconceptions that have prevailed. Steer clear of these by learning about them below.

·         Get as many sites linking to you as you can. Although having other sites link to your site is a good thing, the quality or relevance of the website linking to your site is also important. A lot of low quality links can actually do more harm than good. Instead, get links from sites that are relevant to your site and also offer valuable information to readers.
