    Question


    Hi

    I made my own website for my business. It is quite amateur but I get surpisingly high ranking in Google. (No 3) i have been there for years now. I've never deliberately optimised it or anything. What I want to know is if I employ an SEO company (reputable) could they realistically get me up those 2 places to number 1? Another thing. I own a domain name which is basically the 2 keywords.com for my product. Is it an advantage to have the keywords as the domain name for ranking?

    thanks

    Craig

    Depending on the amount of distance between you and the 2 sites above you for the term it could be very easy or very hard! What is the domain name of your site and what is the search term?

    The keyword domains just by themselves are not worth much.

    Oh No, not another keyword-in-domain-name thread again! I agree with Channel5

    second? isn't that good enough... well just like what channel5 said it really depends... if the site is well optimized and ranked for that particular kw for a long time,, it might take some time... maybe try to make your site more interesting for your visitors..
