We provide SEO in the Philippines. It’s not just about having a website online. It’s about being seen by people looking for the same products and/or services you carry. If your website isn’t optimized to be properly indexed by search engine spiders (ex. Google SE robots), then your website may not generate what you expect it to generate for you.
