Choosing Your SEO Wisely
Unfortunately, the SEO Industry is full of SEOs who are not up to date on industry standards, black-hat SEOs, and scammers. Here are a few questions you can ask potential SEOs before hiring them.
- Can you provide an overview of the Google Search Quality Guidelines?
- Can you provide client references?
- What are some of the things you will do to improve my business’ SEO strategy?
- How do you know if your website has been compromised and is causing an issue with your Google Search Results?
- What do you believe is the single most important component of SEO? (Answers will vary).
- How long before I can expect to see results? (On average it takes 5-6 months but it does vary)
- Can my site rank number 1 for (INSERT RANDOM 1 WORD KEYWORD HERE)? If an SEO is guaranteeing the top spot on Google for a one-word keyword, run…run fast.
If they can answer these questions confidently and honestly then continue to consider them a possible SEO for your business.
