Any discussion of SEO agencies and pricing isn’t complete without a few SEO TIPS about what to look for. To help you guard against indiscriminate SEO businesses with unethical practices, be cautious of the following promises:
Guarantees: SEO firms generally can’t provide guarantees due to the constantly changing nature of the industry.
Instant results: True, some SEO tactics can get “faster results” by gaming the system. However, these can damage the reputation of your website. Instant results often involve SEO practices that are against webmaster guidelines put out by search engines. Invariably, Google seeks out these techniques and penalizes the website which results in dropped rankings that can take a long time to recover.
Get to No 1 on Google: If an agency promises you the number one spot on Google, question it. There are NO GUARANTEES, however, if you are with a reputable agency, and they have accreditation, then you should be in good hands.
BEST SEO Pricing per Month:When it comes to SEO, you can’t cut price or you’ll compromise your potential to rank; You need the best level of service, so be wary of cheap offers, or “Cheap SEO Services.” SEO research requires hours of work, and cannot be compromised, and it changes regularly so this is an ongoing requirement. It takes hours to research the appropriate keywords required for your page content.
Unethical Link building Services: Link building is a necessity for SEO, and you must have inbound links from reputable SEO and Business Directories. Link trust is gaining importance to appear high in the rankings. Don’t PAY the SEO or Business Directory to get your name registered, it should be a free service to list. Ensure that link building services are ethical, white hat services. (Some companies offer you thousands of links to your website for a fee, these are usually overseas links, foreign sites that may not have any relevancy to your country or website content.
