Glut It - FAQ

1) What is SEO?
SEO is Search Engine Optimization. SEO encompasses a group of techniques that aim to gain your website better visibility on Search Engines. Through SEO, your website gets listed on organic search result pages such as Google, Bing & Yahoo.

2) What’s the difference between AdWords & AdSense?
The difference between Adwords and AdSsense is that AdWords allow you to advertise on the Google search results pages while AdSense is the platform to use as a publisher to display Google Ads on your website. i.e. If you want to earn money on your website by listing advertisements, you would use AdSense. If you want to advertise your own website on Google, you will use AdWords.

3) What’s the difference between organic results & paid results?
Organic results are results that appear in search engines for free, based on the Search Engine’s algorithm. Paid (Inorganic) search results appear at the top or the side of a page, an example of this is AdWords.

4) How long does it take to see results from SEO?
There are few main factors that can determine how quickly the results will show. These include, but are not limited to: How much content you create, the quality of your content, how much audience the content attracts, the size & authority of your website. Contents in this context could refer to blog posts, articles, podcasts, infographics, videos, etc. These contents should be unique and original, and relevant to the website. As mentioned on my SEO page, one can expect to see some results after 3 months, if proper efforts have been put in. (Within the top 10 search results page)

5) Should I hire someone to do my SEO?
Hiring someone internally or externally to do your SEO can be beneficial, but it could be harmful if that person doesn’t actually know the ever-changing trend of SEO. e.g. Google recently updated their algorithm on the Penguin update that penalized many websites with bad links. Therefore, it is always wise to choose a reputable SEO agency to help you with your SEO marketing.

6) Why do you need alternate text on your images?
Search engines crawl your websites based on their algorithms, therefore they are unable to read your images. It would help them understand your images and read them and index them accordingly. If in any case where the image doesn’t load, the alternate text will be displayed.

Please note that we are serving clients from Malaysia & Singapore currently for filming.

We also provide audio mastering services.

1) HOW MUCH WILL A VIDEO COST?

Whenever adaptation requires the services of a designer, and the creator has performed to the buyer’s satisfaction, the designer should be given the opportunity to revise his or her own work.

Markup Fees
Any services or goods such as typography, printing, photography, etc., or materials used specifically for the completion of a given project will be billed to the client with an appropriate markup.
