Most website bloggers and owners have considered hiring an SEO firm to provide different types of online marketing services for their website.

This normally happens when websites experience a drastic drop in web traffic. Many new websites struggle to take their web traffic to the next level, and after a certain period they know it’s time to seek help.

SEO service is one of the best ways to increase web traffic on your website. But, how can every SEO Internet marketer promise each of their clients that their service will get their website on the first page of Google search results?

The answer is, some of the SEO service providers can do that, and the others can’t. Here are some important and valuable tips to help you hire the best SEO Company:

1. Don’t judge an SEO firm by its web design

As the saying goes, “don’t judge a book by its cover”, similarly, do not judge an SEO firm by their web design. Almost every SEO firm have professional looking business websites, to lure more customers.

But trust us, they aren’t all good and trustworthy. Check with them that what type of online marketing services they can provide. Also, look for user comments online about that particular SEO firm.

2. Big SEO firms aren’t always better

Most of the SEO help seekers get impressed with some big SEO firms, who have hundred or even thousand employees.

But this doesn’t mean that small SEO firms cannot provide good results. A number of employees doesn’t define the work quality or success rate of an SEO firm.

3. Do not always go with a high ranked SEO firm

High PageRank (PR) SEO firms visible on Google search result’s first page are not necessarily the best one. Some of them actually are on top results due to their domain’s age and a decent number of inbound links they have.

You must compare among your selected SEO firms in terms of, SEO services and SMO services offered, pricing, and also check out who their satisfied clients are.

4. Get several consultations for comparison

Get a free consultation with an SEO firm in person or by phone or email. You must request them to propose a right plan for your website, according to your SEO needs.

Most of the SEO firms are willing to offer free consultation in order to impress customers by showing off what they are capable of. Repeat the same with few other SEO firms, then compare them and choose which looks best to you.

4. Request job reference

This is the best way to find out that the SEO firm will be able to get the job done or will be just a waste of your money. As for job references and case studies from the SEO firms.

Chances are if the SEO firm has successfully gotten the job done for other clients running a similar business like yours, they will most likely be successful in working with you too. Also, learn about their background, about their successes and failures.
