Because of its popularity, search engine optimization (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM) as an industry is exploding. Because of this, more and more individuals and business alike are trying to integrate these services into their offerings regardless of their ability to deliver any kind of results.
Think of the SEO industry a lot like the real estate boom. There were a lot of buyers looking for homes so literally everyone got their real estate license. The same is with SEO. Because of its popularity, everyone feels they have to offer it to take advantage of the SEO boom.
No offense to real estate agents but SEO is substantially more complicated then finding and selling a home, partially because it requires technical knowledge in areas like web development (coding), search hacks for finding good link opportunities as well as a creative mind (not that real estate agents are not creative) which requires the ability to adapt to a dynamic world that changes almost daily.
Lets recap. Everyone is a self-proclaimed SEO expert. Got it? Good.
First, lets assume you haven’t hired an SEO company yet. If you have I still recommend reading through these tips but you’re more than welcome to skip down to section 2.
HOW TO PRE-SCREEN A POTENTIAL SEO VENDOR
When to know when it’s time to fire your SEO provider:
1. It’s been 6 – 12 months and your rankings haven’t moved much and/or are non-existent. This might be a shock to you but there are a lot of ‘SEO Providers,’ who deliver a slick sales pitch, take your deposit and monthly payments and do literally nothing. There are also SEO providers who are really doing your website a disfavor by spamming search engines which will likely result in a penalty or penalties.
2. Your SEO provider refuses to show you their link building tactics. Go ahead, ask your SEO provider to give you a full link report and outline the links they’ve created for you.
Link Building is a critical component to search engine rankings. A few of the most common reasons SEO providers refuse to show you their link development tactics is:
When to NOT fire your SEO Company:
When your brother in-law who claims you’re spending to much on SEO and can do it for much cheaper, even though your current results are good, really doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Your IT guy who also claims to be an SEO Expert is also trying to make a quick buck on your ignorance. IT & SEO are two completely different worlds and specialties.
Cheap SEO is just that, CHEAP. Again, not to beat a dead horse but cheap SEO usually results in terrible results and penalties.
