Choosing an SEO company can be a daunting task. There are many companies out there and each one approaches SEO in a different way. Since SEO is a relatively new industry, customers are still feeling their way around and testing the waters before they dive in. These tips below can help you choose a professional SEO company.
Are they able to show proof, results, and skills that support their claims?
Let's face it, anyone can claim to be an expert in any field. Ask potential companies to provide references and proof of their abilities. Do not waste your time asking them for references or case studies. A potential client will be more than happy if an SEO company can show them previous work.
What is their communication/project support line like?
Communication is vital and essential for a successful SEO campaign. The amount of support and communication you receive will depend on the package you have or how much you pay for SEO services. A project without sufficient communication between both sides is doomed.
If an SEO company or website design company is offering you free SEO, chances are they will rank you for keywords that won't generate any traffic. Like your company name for example. Since SEO is a long process requiring planning, research, analysis and technical labor, there is absolutely no way any reputable, professional SEO company can offer SEO services free of charge.
