Find a Credible SEO Firm for Your Next SEO Project

It’s more common than not that most of our prospects and new clients have worked with a SEO firm in the past. Whether they’ve been working with their current web developer, a full service agency or an individual consultant, most have a bad experience to share with us.

Just because your service provider tells you they can do SEO, that doesn’t mean they really can at the proficiency level required to get your site better visibility on the search engines. Dig deeper and ask the right questions. Here’s an article by Google that’s worth checking out if you’re considering hiring an SEO firm: Do you need an SEO.

Here are some highlights from the Google article:

You are responsible for the actions of any companies you hire, so it’s best to be sure you know exactly how they intend to 'help' you.

“No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google.”

“Beware of SEOs that claim to guarantee rankings, allege a 'special relationship' with Google, or advertise a 'priority submit' to Google. There is no priority submit for Google. In fact, the only way to submit a site to Google directly is through our Add URL page or by submitting a Sitemap and you can do this yourself at no cost whatsoever.”

“Be careful if an SEO firm is secretive or won’t clearly explain what they intend to do.”

“Ask for explanations if something is unclear. If an SEO firm creates deceptive or misleading content on your behalf, such as doorway pages or 'throwaway' domains, your site could be removed entirely from Google’s index. Ultimately, you are responsible for the actions of any companies you hire, so it’s best to be sure you know exactly how they intend to 'help' you. If an SEO has FTP access to your server, they should be willing to explain all the changes they are making to your site.”
