SEO Hiring Guide

Exceptional SEO extends beyond the website

SEO is so much more than just traditional digital marketing. It requires a fundamental understanding of the technology that powers the web. The most effective SEO companies and consultants possess in-depth knowledge of website development, design, hosting and domain names and can optimize almost any website, regardless of platform, CMS or programming language.

They not only are capable of acquiring valuable organic search engine exposure but maintaining it by strictly adhering to search engine guidelines and protocols.

A good SEO will try to prioritize what ideas can bring your business the most improvement for the least investment, and what improvements may take more time, but help growth in the long term. – Maile Ohye, Google

3 step SEO hiring guide

Our SEO hiring guide outlines how to engage us for an ongoing effort that typically involves planning, analysis, strategy, support, research, implementation, management and reporting. In other words – managed SEO service and consulting.

Step 1: Discovery

We need to learn about your services and/or products, objectives, competition and expectations in order to determine the most optimal organic search optimization approach. After contacting us, we’ll respond with a few simple questions within 48 business hours.

Step 2: SEO proposal agreement

SEO proposals come in many formats, where the most common are for ongoing service, project management, consulting and website auditing. Some SEOs will require contracts, whereas other companies (like us) utilize a simple monthly agreement.

In order to create an effective proposal, we assess the existing level of website optimization, current organic search result positioning and top competitors. This process normally takes us between 1-4 days to complete depending on scale and scope.

Step 3: SEO kickoff

Upon receipt of a signed proposal agreement, we’ll dig right in with a site-wide analysis. Within the first month of service, our goal is to develop and implement a strategic roadmap and workflow as well as carry out initial optimization and reporting.
