Are we experts in SEO Services?

Honestly, there isn't such a thing. We doubt it at-least, but we think that we can come close.  This is because Google is changes the landscape every few months, so SEO must be just as dynamic! The true experts are those who are committed to the ongoing battle of "what search engines want next".

When you are looking for an expert, you are looking for someone with a compelling amount of experience in the industry. If they haven't got the ABC's down pat, then you should just keep looking.

What Should They Know?

Well that part is easy to identify:

A. They must understand modern website design, web development techniques, and visitor usability.
Without this
how could you possibly trust that they know how to make the needed changes, update your site if necessary,
and keep your secure in the process?

B. They keep up to date with the latest changes in search engine technology and tools. Popular , paid and free,
tools are available to help these SEO guru's keep the pace and predict the necessary changes that need to happen
in order for you to outcompete your opponents. SEO tools such as Google Analytics, Adwords Keyword Tools,
Traffic Travis, etc provide a massive amount of information for which SEO companies can use to pinpoint where
your next blog article, service page, or product should attack.

C. They embrace Social Media Marketing (SMM) and social engagement (signals) that search engines love.
This is a critical part of the ever changing search engine saga! Every time Google, Bing, or Yahoo make a change
it is leaning further toward social platform and sharing (referral) behavior of human beings.

If someone promises you immediate results or guaranteed rankings, I would run away fast. True SEO is about "earning influence" that brings you customers.  We promise to listen to you and help you identify where you can GROW your business online. You should give us a chance.
