Black-Hat Versus White-Hat SEO
Black-Hat Versus White-Hat SEO

Cooperate with a Leading SEO Marketing Agency in Vietnam

There are good and bad SEO companies. Most auto-claimed SEO experts follow black-hat practices to cheat search engines. A professional marketing agency only applies white hat strategies to comply with policies.

What is White-Hat SEO?

White-hat Search Engine Optimization tactics are techniques that do not break any of the search engines’ guidelines. Google and other platforms update those rules constantly. Digital marketers must follow up on them to stay up to date. Black-hat SEO is the opposite. Those unethical practices mostly focus on deceptive behaviors to confuse search engine algorithms. Here are examples of services that break white-hat rules:

  • cloaking (redirecting people to other destination pages than intended)
  • hidden texts and links
  • keyword stuffing
  • buying links for ranking purposes
  • user-generated spam (like from forums or blogs)

If an SEO services company offers any of the above, that’s a red flag! You should never partner with them, nor implement any of those black-hat practices by yourself too.

Working with a White-Hat SEO Company

Prodima ensures that our SEO efforts always comply with white-hat rules. It applies to all SEO packages that we offer, including:

  • technical SEO
  • on-page SEO
  • off-page SEO

We are committed to improving your site rankings on search engines. To guarantee the best SEO service in Ho Chi Minh City, we focus on quality content and online user experience, while we never go for spammy backlinks. In the long term, we know that white hat techniques deliver sustainable growth. This is the best that you can expect from a trusted SEO partner.

SEO Case Studies from Prodima Vietnam

Since 2020, Prodima has taken seriously each SEO campaign for its clients. We are proud to showcase a few samples below. For confidentiality purposes, we cannot mention the business names. We only share the industry and the figures extracted from those Google Search Console screenshots.

Leading Fashion Brand (Vietnam)

+376% clicks in 4 months

This popular fashion brand from Ho Chi Minh City was mostly relying on online advertising. Prodima implemented a complete SEO strategy to revamp this e-commerce website. Results came during the first few weeks. After four months, the number of organic clicks coming from Google was multiplied by over three times.

Leading International Law Firm (Vietnam)

+283% clicks in 3 months

A legal company was willing to improve its online reach in English and Vietnamese languages. Before activating the work, Prodima had to redesign most of the website to make it SEO-compliant. Then, we adjusted the on-page content and published solid articles to enhance topical authority. During the outreach phase, we approached the most reliable referrals in the legal niche.

Leading E-Commerce B2C Retail Brand (USA)

+5,470% clicks in 7 months

A leading retailer selling specific animal products in the U.S. market needed a solid sales boost. Prodima started by reworking the most important landing pages for conversions. Then, we made them more understandable for both users and search engines. Valuable backlinks came afterward, and so did the organic visitors looking for those products.

Leading B2B Manufacturer (USA)

+682% clicks in 5 months

This B2B client from the USA faced web hacking that destroyed its organic traffic. For over a year, he couldn’t retrieve his past performance. Prodima performed a complete web checkup and cleaning. Then, we implemented white-hat SEO that brought the domain back on track.

Leading B2C E-Commerce Cosmetic Brand (Vietnam)

+2,266% clicks in 5 months

This innovative cosmetic brand from Vietnam launched a new website in 2022. During the first year, it couldn’t take off, mostly because of the new product concept for this traditional market. Prodima took over the website and progressively climbed up the Google rankings.

Leading Insurance Provider (Vietnam)

+ 141% clicks in 3 months

The in-house marketing team of this Vietnamese insurer couldn’t improve the web organic performance. For several years, it remained stagnant on search engines while competitors were doing better. Prodima prepared a content marketing strategy and earned valuable backlinks to comply with the E.E.A.T. framework.

5 Reasons to Consider Prodima SEO Services

Prodima offers digital marketing services with a strong competitive advantage in Ho Chi Minh City and across the Vietnamese market. Our SEO strategies leverage the following five areas.

Our SEO Expertise

The most suitable digital solutions come from the best SEO experts. As a leading provider of white-hat SEO in Vietnam, Prodima has decades of experience. Several of our team members have been building and ranking websites since the 2000s. We didn’t learn SEO from a book! We follow the search engine algorithm updates. We understand what works and what doesn’t. We have even, in the past, tried various black-hat techniques (and we regret today, of course!). Prodima challenges the status quo, continuously tests the limits, and guarantees the best possible SEO results.

Our Custom SEO Packages

Unlike most SEO agencies, Prodima does not send a random “SEO pricing list” when you contact us. We understand that businesses need to budget their digital campaigns. However, Search Engine Optimization is a lot about customization. No two websites are the same. Same for companies. Before we initiate your SEO project, our experts take the time to understand your goals, key selling points, and challenges. We must adjust our SEO packages to your real needs. This preliminary brief allows us to craft a non-generic plan to reach your targets.

Our Transparency

Honesty is one of Prodima’s core values. It starts with transparent communication. Before signing any deal, our consultants ensure that the agreed scope of work and cost breakdown are fully clear. You have all the information in hand when you decide to go for Prodima. You know exactly how much you pay (including the VAT) and what you will get from this investment. It continues during your SEO campaign. We focus on the right metrics and we report from trusted tools. Prodima says no to shady stuff and any form of corruption as well.

Our Partner Care

Prodima serves clients from various countries, markets, and sizes. It is our responsibility to bring them the best organic results. We take this seriously as we believe in long-term business relationships. Our team enjoys a proven track of satisfied clients. Few of them have continuously cooperated with Prodima since 2020, still counting! We do not only provide tons of insights during the consulting phase. After signing the contract, Prodima assigns an SEO Account Manager to work directly with you, bridging your team and the Prodima digital experts. You should join one of our onboarding meetings to understand how Prodima values the concept of customer care!

Our SEO Performance

Because we deeply understand the Search Engine Optimization rules, we deliver amazing organic performance. It starts by focusing on the right Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Prodima keeps vanity metrics away. We optimize what is needed to grow your business. In the previous section, we showcased our SEO efficiency with real Google Search Console dashboards. We can do the same for your business.

Prodima SEO Campaign Process

Prodima Vietnam SEO Process in 8 Steps
Prodima Vietnam SEO Process in 8 Steps

At Prodima, we follow a bulletproof 8-step process to activate your SEO campaigns. Each of them is equally important to guarantee success. Of course, the last phases that we describe below need reiteration.

1. Understand

The very first step is to clarify the SEO project scope. It starts with understanding your company’s history and essence to align with the goals. This essential phase justifies why Prodima never sends generic quotations to its partners. Each business is unique. How can we build a plan and estimate the needed investment without a brief or a meeting with you? Once we are clear with your expectations and digital ecosystem, we can go ahead with the analysis phase.

2. Research

Based on your brief, Prodima performs market research which includes:

  • SWOT analysis
  • competitive benchmark
  • website audit
  • good and bad practice identification
  • historical data and trends
  • keyword research

We always craft our SEO strategies based on market data. There is no guessing game when it comes to SEO. We have the tools to extract this information for your benefit.

3. Plan

Facts tell us what we should do. Thanks to the market research, our SEO experts can prepare a plan to enhance your website. The main goals are to increase your online traffic and to rank higher for your target keywords. This SEO plan is the final step to convince us. Based on our presentation, you can decide whether to work with Prodima Vietnam or not. Yes, it means that the first three steps of our SEO process are free of charge!

4. Set Up

Once we are aligned on the campaign scope, it is time to sign a contract. The first day of the project coincides with Prodima’s onboarding meeting. It is a campaign kickoff that lasts around one hour. During this meeting, we cover the following agenda:

  • campaign goals
  • agreed scope of work
  • task timelines
  • responsibilities
  • tools and account access
  • communication channels
  • reporting
  • answering all questions

Then, we ensure that we activate the work as soon as possible. For example, suppose you want our web developers to perform custom web design, update HTML tags, improve your web loading speed, or ensure mobile compatibility. In that case, Prodima needs to access your web DNS and hosting.

5. Activate

Right after the onboarding meeting, Prodima officially launches your SEO campaign. The first month usually focuses on web development tasks to fix your technical SEO. We must polish your target web pages before considering any off-page SEO. During this preliminary phase, a serious SEO company should go through a checklist that includes:

  • page crawling and indexation
  • robots.txt file
  • sitemap.xml
  • HTTPS protocol
  • URLs
  • core web vitals
  • 404 pages
  • redirects
  • web architecture, subdomains, and subfolders
  • breadcrumbs
  • schema markup
  • and more.

Our SEO checklist includes hundreds of factors to review. We consider them all during the website audit. From this analysis, our experts build an SEO technical fixes plan to improve your website’s health.  When the second month starts, we focus on on-page SEO, content marketing, title tags, and meta descriptions. Besides, we also cover off-page SEO, including earning quality backlinks, publishing guest posts, improving your website’s credibility, and driving qualified traffic to your landing pages.

6. Monitor

A decent marketing agency follows up on his campaign performance. We can only improve what we can measure. Google Analytics and Google Search Console are the key tools to achieve this. There is no better platform to analyze accurate data regarding your website traffic and organic search. Of course, Prodima also uses professional software like Ahrefs and Semrush to enhance your online business and reach your target customers. Our account managers and content writers oversee your search engine results performance. They report your campaign progress, build a roadmap, share valuable consulting advice, and ensure you are constantly crystal clear on your search engine rankings.

7. Optimize

A professional digital marketing agency must not only share the good news when finally ranking on the first page of Google. It must also adjust the campaign settings to satisfy the internet users. An SEO service never ends. We must continuously adapt to algorithm updates, react to the competition, reach the top three positions on the search engine results… and stay there. There is always room to improve. Technical SEO, on-page SEO, and off-page SEO require a huge effort to pay off in the long term.

8. Report

To report your data, Prodima leverages the Google Looker tool. This dashboard showcases data coming from your Google Analytics (GA4) and Search Console (GSC). The two main goals of SEO digital marketing services are:

  • high-quality traffic
  • high keyword rankings

Prodima also reports the following items:

  • website health (3-month auditing)
  • competitors benchmark
  • new blog articles
  • backlink profile evolution
  • web page organic traffic performance

With this information, we can discuss to decide what to do next.

Will you join this list of happy clients? We love to see you dominate your market!

Custom SEO Services in Ho Chi Minh City

In the previous section, we described our 8-step process for running full-service SEO. However, Prodima also customizes its organic campaigns based on your needs.

SEO Audit

Prodima offers one-off SEO audit services. If you already have your team of web developers, we can pass your website through our checklist, and send a comprehensive guideline that includes:

  • list of all failed items
  • short explanation
  • how to fix
  • database (complete list of the URLs to fix)

Your in-house team will follow our directions to complete this technical SEO work. Prodima supports your developer until the completion. Upon your request, we can audit your website again to confirm the fixes are fully operational. Depending on your website size and complexity, our SEO audits cost around 35,000,000 VND, not including the VAT yet.

Local SEO

Local SEO allows your business to dominate your niche market around your physical location. Depending on your company, improving your local SEO rankings can engage high-intent clients. Prodima optimizes your Google Business Profile (formerly Google My Business) to enhance your local following’s growth. The cost of this service depends on factors like your industry or the competition from other local businesses. Our basic package starts from 10,000,000 VND, plus the VAT.

E-Commerce SEO

Most e-commerce companies run online advertising to sell their products. Google and Facebook ads are excellent platforms to guarantee short-term results. Running an SEO campaign for e-commerce websites is also an efficient ROI-driven strategy if you consider the long-term. What if your web development efforts and on-page SEO bring you extra high-qualified clients? Unlike online advertisements, e-commerce SEO ensures the following:

  • better shopping experience
  • more brand authoritativeness
  • easier product search
  • higher client retention rate
  • lower client acquisition costs in the long run

E-commerce SEO is a priceless strategy and an excellent complement to Search Engine Marketing (SEM) or social ads.

SEO Copywriting

Content is the core of digital marketing services. It must satisfy search engines and real humans. At Prodima, we do not publish AI-generated content. We have our in-house copywriters who will bring your products and services to the first page of Google. They are experts at:

  • keyword research
  • understanding online users’ search intent
  • analyzing the best online practices
  • producing high-quality copies

Our content writers produce articles from scratch or edit already-published ones to guarantee their SEO compliance. Our copywriting fee depends on the language and scope of work. Pricing starts from 250,000 VND per 1,000 words for non-technical topics.

Link-Building

Backlinks remain one of the top-ranking factors for web pages. However, not all links pass the same value. The main criteria to evaluate the quality of a backlink are:

  • referring domain relevance
  • referring domain authoritative score
  • anchor text
  • link rel attribute

Prodima is a reputable SEO agency in Vietnam that can help you earn such backlinks. The pricing for this service depends on your market (relevance factor) and the quality needed. The more valuable, the more expensive. The best way to get started with link-building is to define a budget. Based on this information, Prodima will tell you what you could get.

Page Speed Optimization

Excellent loading speed makes a difference in online user experience and conversions. If you are not looking for a complete SEO service but still need to optimize your core web vitals, Prodima web developers can handle this task. We start with a code source review to identify the bottlenecks and potential improvement areas. Once we finish this web analysis, we inform you about the costs and timeline for completion.

SEO Course

In 2023, Prodima launched a new SEO course for professionals. It answers the growing demand for learning this technical practice. This SEO training program has eight modules:

  • SEO fundamentals
  • website structure
  • keyword research
  • on-page SEO
  • technical SEO
  • off-page SEO
  • SEO copywriting
  • course summary

It also includes practice cases. We apply each course area to your company website, so you learn more efficiently. We have different pricing for companies and individuals, as per the breakdown below:

  • 25,000,000 VND per corporate employee
  • 10,000,000 VND per individual

This course is the most comprehensive one available in Ho Chi Minh City.

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs about SEO services

What is an SEO Service?

A Search Engine Optimization service is a digital marketing campaign that optimizes web pages to pull them to the top of organic search results. SEO agencies or freelance marketers provide such services.

How Does SEO Work?

SEO works through a combination of factors that are optimized to improve the online visibility and authoritativeness of web pages. SEO marketers usually follow a specific checklist.

Which Businesses Need SEO Services?

All companies having or needing a website can benefit from SEO. The top conditions for activating an organic campaign are:

  • if your website faces problems with crawlability or indexing
  • if your website has low-performing core web vitals
  • if your website lacks quality traffic and qualified leads
  • if your business lacks online visibility and needs brand awareness
  • if your business lacks trustworthiness and needs authoritativeness
  • if your business is looking to increase its online ROI
  • if your competitors beat you to rank on search engines

Such services are mostly suitable for B2C companies. However, even if the search volumes are much lower, B2B corporates can also take advantage of organic optimizations.

How Does SEO Generate Online Leads and Sales?

SEO generates qualified online leads and sales thanks to its focus on trust, authoritativeness, loyalty, and customer care. Unlike online advertising, Search Engine Optimization practices are extremely user-oriented. They answer the market demand (market pull strategy). SEO guarantees to attract customers who are genuinely interested in your products and services, which ensures better conversion rates.

How Much Do SEO Services Cost?

Black-hat services are cheap, which is why they appeal to so many companies. White-hat SEO is typically more time and budget-consuming. Depending on the scope of work, an SEO monthly retainer can start from 20,000,000 VND to hundreds of millions.

How Do I Know Which Type of SEO Service I Need?

To identify which type of SEO service you need, consider these three checks:

  • if your web pages show up badly or don’t show up at all on Google, then you need technical SEO
  • if your web pages have low-quality content, then you need on-page SEO
  • if your web pages rank lower than your competitors, then you need off-page SEO

If you are not familiar with SEO, the best is to request an audit from experts.

What Does Impact SEO Rankings?

Hundreds of factors impact SEO rankings and they constantly change following the search engine algorithm updates. Here is a non-exhaustive list of the most crucial SEO factors:

  • website crawlability and indexing
  • core web vitals
  • content
  • outreach and backlinking

Does Prodima Implement SEO Black-Hat?

No. Prodima never implements either black-hat or grey-hat SEO. We exclusively follow white hat practices to ensure sustainable growth for your web pages.

What Is the Difference Between White-Hat and Black-Hat SEO?

White-hat SEO strictly follows search engine policies. It aims to put online users first by optimizing web pages, publishing high-quality content, and earning natural backlinks. White hat practices take more time to get results and are always more expensive. Black-hat SEO relies on deceitful techniques to trick search engine algorithms and violate rules for short-term benefits. Black hat practices ensure quick results for cheap costs, but risk search engine penalties like website deindexation.

What is Topical Authority?

Topical authority is how relevant, insightful, and useful your content is, compared with other sources. The best way to raise topical authority is to publish high-quality content written by experts in this field.

Does Blogging Help SEO?

Yes, blogging is a pillar for SEO. Great articles generate topical authority and pull your content to the first page of search results.

Is SEO Better than Paid Advertising?

Here are the SEO and paid advertising (ADS) pros and cons:

  • SEO ensures better ROI than ADS in the long-term
  • SEO takes more time than ADS to get significant results
  • SEO follows a market pull logic while ADS is a market push
  • SEO requires web technical implementations while ADS focuses on ad account settings

SEO is not better than paid advertising. Both are different digital marketing strategies that combine well together.

How Does an SEO Agency Guarantee Traffic Growth?

No genuine SEO expert can guarantee traffic growth to web pages, due to the evermoving search engine ecosystem and the competitors’ reaction. However, a skilled team can make traffic growth estimations based on the keyword search volumes and their expected rankings. For example, if a web page ranks in the first position for a keyword having a monthly search volume of 100, we can estimate around 30 monthly visitors coming to this page. A marketing agency should never guarantee but rather estimate traffic growth. They should be prepared to adjust their plans according to the market evolution.

How Long Does SEO Take?

For a website in good shape in a low-competitive market, SEO can generate results in the first two weeks of the campaign. However, most websites need technical SEO before considering on-page and off-page optimizations. In this case, three months is a more realistic timeline to see organic traction. It can take over six months to get SEO results if the market is ultra-competitive.

What to Ask an SEO Agency Before Hiring It?

To choose the best service, ask your potential SEO partners the following questions:

  • show me the profile of your team members in charge of the SEO strategy
  • show me the profile of your team members in charge of the SEO copywriting
  • show me similar companies you have worked with
  • what are the top 3 priorities to optimize on my website?
  • how much traffic increase can I expect in the next year?
  • how many keywords do you expect to rank on the first page of Google in the next year?
  • how do you acquire backlinks?
  • which metrics do you focus on to measure success?
  • how do you report to your clients?
  • how do you charge your SEO service?

Should I Do SEO In-House or Outsource?

You should consider to outsource SEO if you fall in any of the following conditions:

  • you do not have the human resources to handle SEO tasks
  • you do not have the skills to handle SEO tasks
  • you do not have the tools to handle SEO tasks
  • you do not have the time to handle SEO tasks
  • you tried SEO in-house before with poor results

How Do SEO Services Grow a Business?

Good SEO campaigns impact these two metrics:

  • qualified organic traffic
  • relevant keyword rankings

Besides, they raise the business’s online awareness, trustworthiness, and authoritativeness.
