I hear bad things about some SEO Consultants?
Unfortunately there are many SEO consultants out there that will quite happily take your money and promise you the earth and then never deliver you the results.
Sometimes the really bad SEO consultants will go one stage worse and that is to optimise your site and secure some of the top slots for a particular search term and for about 5 minutes your happy, but there is a problem.
You are not receiving any extra traffic or revenue for all of your expense and you conclude that search engine optimisation has been a total waste of time and money.
Now you would be wrong, the truth is the SEO consultant that you hired was not working in your interest.
What the bad SEO consultant has done is target key phrases that are not searched for so that there is no real competition and the top positions are easily achieved because no one searches for it.
This is not how I or any other reputable SEO consultant works.
How can I make sure the SEO Consultant is a good one?
To make sure you protect yourself from falling prey to a bad SEO consultant here is 6 questions you should always ask before hiring anyone to perform search engine optimisation for you:
- What methods do you employ when undertaking search engine optimisation?
- What qualifies you to be able to provide me with a professional SEO consultation service?
- How long do you think the project will take?
- How much will this cost?
- What other sites have you preformed search engine optimisation on and can I speak to the them?
- What can you guarantee for me?
The golden rule is if what the SEO consultant has said sounds too good to be true then it probably is. So if in doubt, do not risk it. If you are in need of some search engine optimisation help please contact me and I will be only to happy to help!
