How To Choose The Right SEO Firm
September 20, 2013 Sanjay Dabhoya

Search engine optimization is a long-term process for online marketing. It has helped many businesses flourish. In today’s competitive world, SEO is a must for every website. It helps your website to become visible on the top searches in Google and other search engines.

While hiring a company for your websites’ SEO and Marketing, you should pay attention to the following:

Portfolio and Past works:
You should have a look at their portfolio for SEO. You can check the rankings yourself and pay attention to hiring right SEO firm. Also, you will most likely find a bunch of case studies or a list of their clients.

You can also ask the company to provide you some client references. Do not hesitate to contact the clients and get a feedback about the company. And if there is no list or clientele, it is considered as the red flag for that company.

Conduct a background check:
Nowadays, it is really easy to find the feedback of the agencies, thanks to Internet and Google. While the testimonials on their website would be best success stories, you still need to dig deeper about it.

We recommend to try to get a hold of 3 businesses that are average and still growing. Ask them for the honest accounts, were the agency was good in communication? Did they deliver their promises?

Choosing as SEO team is like hiring new employees. You need to consider third-party opinions to get a better impression and idea of the agency.

Targeted audience:
It is important that SEO enhances the visibility of your website in the search engines. Also, it is more important to drive targeted traffic to your website.

Make sure that the company you select understands your target audience and drives them to your website.

  • Does they know what are the key requirements to build a great SEO for website?
  • Do they know how to calculate the ROI (return of Investment) and are assuring a good conversion ratio for your business?
  • Are they guaranteeing it?

Some of the things can be neglected but not all, after all it is about your company and your business. And, you are contacting them to grow and not to fall from the place you are already at after this much struggles.

Measurable results:
As I mentioned in the above point, the company you employ for performing SEO services should be able to deliver measurable results.

Almost all the SEO companies send regular work reports to the clients and a client must have to get the idea after the first month itself if the agency’s tactics and strategies are going to help you or not.

You should ask the company about the reporting format and how often would they send the reports. Focus on the figures they deliver and you need.

Other criteria:
The company you select should make use of only white-hat SEO techniques to make your website stand out of the competition. That’s very important.

The SEO professionals should be able to make your website rank higher in search engines and also drive targeted traffic to your site. And, there are many more things that a SEO service provider need to do in case to let you on top of the SERPs and your business and field.

Before hiring the SEO company, you should clarify everything and make the right choice. If you are unable to clarify your needs and requirements, you must not expect from the agency to deliver it, without being informed.

After these above of the points that are the most essential on how to choose the right SEO firm or agency, you must have been a clear vision on which kind of agency or firm you need and how will you get them.

If you feel that you are facing a bit problem or confused, do right in the below given space.
All the best!
