What To Ask a SEO Company
Watch our video "5 TIPS on Hiring a Digital Marketing Agency".
- Who is going to do the work, someone in the USA or someone in India? (if you have an American doing the work, expect to pay a higher price. What you’re looking for is transparency)
- Do I get an account rep or do I get weekly reports? I want to stay informed so I can know where we are in the process. How does it work? (ask this question so the SEO company knows they will be held accountable, but you, as the business owner, need to be held accountable too.)
- Have you ever done any work in this industry? I need leads/sales. I’m in the XYZ industry. (it’s okay if they say no. You’re looking for transparency. Maybe they have experience in a related industry.)
- How long have you been doing Google SEO? (find someone with full-time experience)
- Can you share some failures that you have had when it comes to SEO? Every company talks about its success. (again, you’re looking for transparency).
Speed is a Ranking Factor. Fast Site=Better Rankings
Site speed falls under On-Site SEO. The speed of your website affects ALL rankings: local, national, and international. Do you hate when websites load slow? So does Google! Even if you have a site that loads at an average speed, your rankings can drastically improve with a faster website. Below are two speed testing softwares: Google PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix. If you don't take care of the speed of your website first, SEO will always be an uphill battle.
