When many people think about search engine optimization, they assume that is something that they can handle on their own. They assume that they can simply tweak the wording on their respective websites and they will automatically skyrocket to the top of the search engine results page.
Well, it’s not quite that simple. In fact, there is a lot that you can do with search engine optimization that has absolutely nothing to do with tweaking your own websites and webpages. To prove this point, the folks at SEO Arbiter decided to order this review, illustrating just what is possible when you make use of their SEO services.

The Power of Off-Page SEO
In case you haven’t figured it out for yourself already, search engine optimization off your own webpage is just as important (if not more important) than the SEO you do on your own webpage. My own minor SEO victory was achieved largely with off-page strategies.
For the purposes of this review, SEO Arbiter ran a case study on John Chow dot Com, trying to improve its search engine optimization for a number of keywords. Part of the technique involved a lot of article submission.
Shown above is one of the articles that was submitted to Ezine Articles on the subject of authority sites and blogging for money. As you can imagine, this article came with a couple of links back to John Chow dot Com using the targeted anchor text.
SEO Arbiter submitted a total of 51 articles specifically for this purpose. Those articles have been viewed 1,779 times with 63 clicks to John Chow dot Com.
The Proof is in the Pudding
So, how did they do? After almost two months of search engine optimization for John Chow dot Com, SEO Arbiter was able to propel the blog into the top ten results in Google for five critical keyword phrases.
For some of these, John Chow dot Com was able to move up between 14 and 25 positions in the search engine, but the SEO pushed the blog up more than 91 positions for “earn money blogging.” That’s quite the achievement in a relatively short amount of time.
You can see that for some of the other highly competitive keyword phrases, SEO Arbiter was not able to get into the top ten, but the rankings did improve substantially.
