Finding the best SEO firm sounds like a daunting task, especially to businesses that are not sure where to start looking. While it is good to ask your business friends which SEO company they use and why, we feel that we have a pretty firm understanding of what the best SEO firm should look like, and we would like to pass this information along to you, readers.
1. While an internet search may seem too obvious, therein lies a lot of information about what you can assess about a SEO company you are considering. If the company is difficult to find, that is probably not a good first sign. Now your keywords may be a lot easier to rank for, so if you have to do a little bit of searching, don’t toss them out right away.
2. Part of an internet search result you will most likely find reviews, too. Take a look at what others have to say about their experiences with that particular company. Anonymity of the internet may allow for some unfair comments, so do not be shy to ask the company you are considering for additional reviews, testimonials and references to get another look into what past or existing customers have said.
3. While some companies may guarantee incredible results within only a short period of time, such as days or weeks, you might not want to consider them too carefully. Any professional SEO company will take care to make sure rankings don’t shoot through the roof too quickly, because that often is a result of bad practices that are penalized by Google. A secure method of ranking takes time, using only methods seen fit by Google. The reason for this is that Google wants to make sure that the most relevant content and information comes up at the top of the list. With bad methods, also known as black-hat methods, they only help businesses rank high, but they may have a bad user experience on their site with content that is not meant to help the user, only to achieve higher rankings.
4. Check out the company’s guarantee. Do they have a money-back policy? This policy is sometimes used by companies that have a great understanding of the industry and know what it takes to achieve great rankings within a few months’ time. If these rankings are not achieved, 180Fusion offers a full money-back guarantee.
