What is the estimated time for my company to appear in Google and Bing's auto-suggest?
The time it takes to establish authority for a keyword phrase can vary depending on its competitiveness. However, keyword phrases typically start showing up in Bing within 30-40 days and in Google after 90+ days.
Can SBO increase my business?
According to Google, 71% of users utilize the auto-complete feature, while more than 91% of users view it. When users come across your company suggested in the auto-complete while searching for your product or service, it can boost their confidence in your brand. Clicking on your business in the auto-complete leads to every organic listing displaying your business, not your competitors, resulting in a surge in business for our customers.
Apart from appearing in the autosuggest, what else can SBO do for my business online?
Search Box Optimization (SBO) can help your business appear in every organic listing on the first page of Google and Bing, giving you consistency in results and on monthly costs. It can also enhance your overall online presence and authority for each search engine. For more details, please view the video on our Home and Advantages pages. Or contact us today!
Can SBO provide my business with strong leads?
Absolutely! Search Box Optimization can bring you leads from various sources, including Yelp, BBB, YouTube, blogs, press releases, and aggregate sites like YP.com, DexKnows, and Merchant Circle. As users find your business in the auto-suggest and click on it, they become qualified leads.
Do you track SBO results?
Absolutely. While we may not be able to track phone calls or in-person visits to your business, we can measure the increase in website traffic generated by our service.
We provide regular reports that demonstrate the extra traffic our Search box optimization service brings to your business from various sources. Our product is cutting-edge technology that puts your business at an advantage in online searches.
Is SBO similar to the SEO strategy I currently have in place for my business?
No, Search Box Optimization provides much more than traditional SEO. It offers increased online visibility, more top-ranking positions on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo, more clicks to your website, and, ultimately, more revenue.

Do you use any unethical methods to achieve your impressive results?
No, we don't. Our approach to influencing the auto-suggest feature of search engines is based on social media trending and building website authority in compliance with Google's algorithm standards. We don't engage in any black or gray hat tactics that violate search engines' guidelines. Our strategies are tailored specifically to gain social awareness and authority that meets the criteria for appearing in the search box auto-suggestions. While our techniques are similar to SEO, our focus is on influencing the indicators that search engines use to determine auto-complete suggestions, which is primarily based on social trends.
Can I be assured that I have exclusive rights to the keyword phrase, or will you also offer it to my competitors?
Once a keyword phrase is sold, it is exclusive to the buyer and is no longer available for sale to their competitors or anyone else. To check if a specific keyword phrase is still available, you can go to Google or Bing and type in the phrase. If the auto-complete box shows any company names after the keyword phrase in the suggestion box, it means that the keyword phrase has already been sold. However, if no company names appear after the phrase, then the keyword phrase is likely still available. If you're interested in purchasing a specific keyword phrase, please contact us, and we'll help you get started on improving your business's online presence.
Are there any additional charges?
With our Search Box Optimization service, there are no additional fees beyond the monthly cost. In addition, we have no undisclosed costs; the monthly investment remains fixed once you place your order.
What does "local keyword phrase" mean?
We offer keyword phrases for both local and national businesses. A local keyword phrase includes a location identifier, such as "Los Angeles garage door repair." In contrast, a national keyword phrase does not have a specific location attached, such as "garage door repair." National keyword phrases are suitable for franchises and businesses serving customers across the country, while local keyword phrases effectively drive customers to a specific local business.

What is the investment of a national keyword phrase?
The cost of a national keyword phrase varies based on the competitiveness of the phrase and other factors. National keyword phrases receive a high volume of monthly searches such as "home loans" and can generate inquiries from customers nationwide. The process of obtaining a national keyword phrase requires considerable effort, which is why we price each phrase individually based on its level of competition.
