It has been FAR too long since I’ve written here and for that I apologize. I’m glad to be back! There are A LOT of SEO companies out there and each one has its own process, standards, results, etc. If you’re thinking of hiring an SEO company or consultant, there are a few things you should keep in mind.
- Beware of Promises: There is not an SEO company in the world that can promise you “the number one spot on Google in 10 days!” SEO takes time. It takes time to build up keyword-focused content, backlinks, a social media presence, etc. Sure, with hard work and good content, you may very well be the #1 search result on Google. But your position in the search engines will invariably fluxuate depending on your output, your competition’s SEO efforts, Google’s algorithm changes, etc.
- Ask Questions: Don’t be afraid to ask questions! SEOs are nice and we certainly don’t bite, in fact, we love when people are interested and want to understand what we do. When hiring an SEO consultant, you need to make sure that you’re comfortable with them, as they’ll have access to your website, hosting info., etc. If you’re unable to ask questions or don’t like the way they are answered, keep looking.
- Ask for Results: Again, no SEO company can guarantee you the top spot in the search engines but that doesn’t mean you won’t get there if they know what they’re doing. Before hiring any SEO consultants, ask to see results from some of their current clients. Ask for client references, as well. The good guys will be more than happy to supply you with satisfied client referrals. You can see one of our client’s results with the graph below – this graph measures the website visitor’s per week.
The above are just a few pointers to keep in mind when you’re shopping about for an SEO consultant. If you have questions about SEO or ERGOS IT Solutions’ SEO services, give us a call at 1-877-99-ERGOS. It’s time to put your website to work for your business! Feel free to shoot us an email too.
