"Organic" or "natural" search results are the search listings most of us look at first when we do a Google search. They are the "free" listings in the main area of the search results page.
These listings don't appear on the page because anyone paid a search engine for them to be there. They are there because the websites' content "naturally" led the search engine to identify the sites as strongly relevant to searchers' needs.
But don't let the words "organic" and "natural" fool you - most top-ranking websites have been carefully designed, or "optimized", so that they have the characteristics that the search engines are looking for when they decide which sites to list first.
If your competitors outrank you in the search engines, it's probably because they've paid experts to optimize their sites. Now it's time to get some experts on your side - and for a lower cost-per-lead than your competitors ever dreamed of!
How can iMarket help you dominate the search engines?
"Search Engine Optimization" (SEO) is the art and science of persuading search engines to give your website a high ranking in the organic search engine listings - and it's the foundation of everything we do at iMarket.
Every search engine wants to provide useful, relevant content to users. If it doesn't, it will quickly fall out of favor - and lose advertising revenue. Therefore, every search engine is constantly evaluating and re-evaluating the freshness and quality of the content of the websites it lists. To compete effectively in the search engine rankings, you need to show the search engines that your website has the great content they're looking for. Effective SEO puts useful, relevant, fresh content on your website in a way that search engines can see and interpret it easily.
At iMarket, we provide you with all the tools and services you need for powerful SEO performance:

This is a congratulatory letter to iMarket Solutions. We have contracted your services and implemented your Domination package. The results have been fantastic!
What was most amazing to me was the results we are seeing in our commercial division. I believe we at Advantage Airtech erred in just how much coverage we allotted the commercial division of the business. However even with this disproportionate allocation of space on the site the leads are overwhelming.
Our commercial leads are up 320% and are accounting for 78% of our leads. This is quite frankly, a tremendous increase in leads that we never experienced in the past. Our residential leads have dramatically increased as well, I somewhat expected this due to the calibre of the site and the material which is weighted more in the residential. Our residential leads have increased from the 22% of our leads from last year to this year being 54% of our leads.
I have been negligent in thanking you for a job well done as this impact was noticed shortly after launch. The negligence in relaying the good news to you has happened because frankly I have been busy trying to keep up with the leads.
Happy to be aboard with your company!
Advantage Airtech Ltd.
Here's what's going on:
Many people perceive the Penguin algorithm as nothing more than a thug, here to force thousands of small businesses into paid advertisement on Google by tanking their organic visibility. So I’m sure you can imagine the unrest within the community as the one year anniversary of the last update passed. But on Friday (October 17th, 2014), webmasters finally got their wish – Google began rolling out Penguin 3.0. Whether or not it was what they had hoped for is yet to be determined.
It was exciting while it lasted, but unfortunately, Google authorship is no longer supported by Google. But first, allow me to shed a little light on the rise and fall of Google’s authorship markup. The Google authorship rich snippet was first introduced by Matt Cutts at the SMX Advanced conference, back in 2011. For those unfamiliar with this rich snippet; it allowed you to identify yourself as the author of the content within a blog post, which would then publish a small thumbnail of your Google+ profile photo directly to the left of your blog post snippet within Google’s search results.
