Ask These Questions When Hiring an SEO Company



Search engine optimization (SEO) is a constantly evolving practice, as search engines continue to update their algorithms to provide a better user experience. Where SEO could once be effectively done with keyword density equations and cheaply bought backlinks, modern SEO only works as part of a holistic, integrated digital marketing strategy.

Accordingly, a modern keyword strategy needs user intent research, content marketing experience, and a working knowledge of Google’s ranking priorities. It might require more than one or two SEO experts in a marketing team, which is why some brands are choosing to partner with a professional SEO agency.

Hiring an SEO company or agency can be a daunting task. In the best-case scenario, your partner grows organic traffic to your site, improves your search rankings, and helps you generate more leads and sales. In the worst-case scenario, your SEO partner engages in black hat techniques that give the appearance of success, disappears before the penalties kick in, and leaves you with less traffic than ever—and months’ or years’ worth of cleanup.

However, hiring someone to create and execute an SEO plan doesn’t have to be difficult. You don’t need to be an expert to hire one; you just need to know what questions to ask and what answers to expect.

Below are the major 8 questions you should ask to gauge the quality of their SEO service:
  • How will you improve my search engine rankings?
  • Do you adhere to search engines' webmaster guidelines? 
  • Will you share with me all changes you make to my site? 
  • Are you experienced at improving web search results? 
  • How do you measure the success of your SEO campaigns? 
  • What other type of digital marketing services they offer along with the SEO services?
  • Do you have any success stories / Testimonials / case studies to share?
  • How their pricing works? or How do they charge?
By asking these questions and evaluating the answers to determine the practices and policies an SEO company employs, you’ll be able to weed out black-hat SEOs and find an agency that delivers long-term success with white hat SEO practices.

What Is A Full Service Digital Marketing Agency?

A full service digital marketing agency is one that manages all aspects of a company’s online presence. This kind of agency would have different departments that focus on one area, for example a department for design, website development, content writing, social media management, SEO and SEM.

Thus, the agency’s aim is to come up with a holistic strategy for a company, whereby they define their KPI, and evaluate how each and every department can help in the accomplishment of this end goal.

For example, a start-up company would first need an eye-catching, user and mobile-friendly design for a website which would be handled by the UX and design team, then the website would move into development, whilst preparations are underway in the SEO and content writing departments, as well as the SEM department.
