SEO Consulting & Other Frequently Asked Questions
Here we answer some frequently asked questions about SEO.
What is SEO consulting? What is an SEO audit?
We also explain why your SEO consultant can’t — or shouldn’t — guaranty future rankings.
What Is SEO Consulting?
SEO consulting is a problem-solving process. Initially, the consultant or the client may identify one or more problems. Identifying solutions often requires research. When the facts are known, the consultant may recommend one solution or explain options.
What’s an SEO Audit?
An SEO audit is a website review conducted to identify SEO problems and opportunities. The audit report serves as a planning tool to guide strategy and tactics. Comprehensive audits often include a review of competitors’ sites.
Why Are SEO Results Hard to Predict?
SEO results are hard to predict because your SEO company doesn’t control influential factors that are in flux. For example, your SEO can’t control Google’s daily ranking-algorithm adjustments, your competitors’ activities, or how effectively and promptly you implement recommendations.
How Much Does SEO Cost?
SEO is a form of marketing. Decide how much to invest in marketing and what portion of your marketing costs you will allocate to SEO. Determining how much to spend on SEO is a business decision. There is no right answer.
