Google: Do Your Homework Before Hiring SEO Firms

Google offers companies a guide to use when seeking an SEO company – questions that should be asked of search engine optimization firms to ensure the best services are secured. The search engine firm’s help section says if you are thinking about hiring an SEO firm, the earlier the better. And it offers the following useful questions to ask an SEO provider. Ali Husayni, who is highly knowledgeable in Google ranking services, provides answers.

Q: Can you show me examples of your previous work and share some success stories?

A: Millionairium’s search engine optimization service has many satisfied clients. Find out if your site qualifies to be ranked on the first page of Google by filling out the form on our site.  If your site qualifies, my administrative assistant will set up an appointment with you to speak with me directly. After our initial conversation, we will send you a formal proposal and a list of our current clients so you can contact them and hear what they say about our work.

Q: Do you follow the Google Webmaster Guidelines?

A: Indeed. Google uses software called spiders to find your site, read its code and content and rank it for your specific keywords. We follow Google Webmaster Guidelines to optimize our clients’ websites. Website optimization paves the way for Google spiders so they can easily read your site and find your important keywords. The optimization process involves modifying the meta tags of each page of your site to insert your specific keywords where appropriate. Also, we update other back-end codes such as alt-image tags, header tags, etc. We then insert your keywords within the body of your site’s content. We stay away from “black-hat” SEO techniques, because Google can easily locate any spamming optimization technique and penalize your site for using such unacceptable techniques.

Q: Do you offer any online marketing services or advice to complement your organic search business?

A: We offer website copy-writing, blogging, SEM, SMM and other related services which will complement our organic SEO work.

Q: What kind of results do you expect to see, and in what timeframe? How do you measure your success?

A: Each client and their needs are unique. We carefully assess their site, keywords and competition and come up with a plan of action with realistic results. Our goal is to rank our clients’ sites atop Google search results under the organic listings. This is achievable from one to two months, to up to two years for some international keywords.

Q: What is your experience in my industry?

A: We have helped more than 500 businesses worldwide, and that number continues to grow.  We have experience in various fields, including real estate, medical, restaurants, software and car dealerships.

Q: What is your experience in my country/city?

A: Our client base is scattered all over the world, but our main client base is the U.S., followed by Canada and the U.K.

Q: What is your experience developing international sites?

A: We have worked with a few internationally based businesses. We will share our clients’ information with those prospective clients who qualify for our services and are serious about SEO. We will share a reference list soon after our initial client consultation.

Q: What are your most important SEO techniques?

A:  In the initial consultation, you will learn some of our secret SEO techniques. These have been used to rank our sites and those of our clients in top positions for very competitive keywords. You will also learn what you can expect from your SEO campaign, based on your budget.

Q: How long have you been in business?

A: Millionairium is seven years old and Husayni has nearly a decade of experience in SEO.

Q: How can I expect to communicate with you? Will you share with me all the changes you make to my site and provide detailed information about your recommendations and the reasoning behind them?

A: You will communicate with us by phone, email, and Skype. We have an open communication policy. We share all details of our work in monthly reports. After the initial consultation, you will receive an electronic package containing recent samples of our client reports, etc. We will share as much information about site changes as you would like.

  • It\’s an Investment You shouldn\’t look at SEO as an expense; rather, you should consider it an investment into your company\’s future.

    You might be surprised by just how much more money you\’ll be able to
    make with your site after you start bringing in a lot of traffic, and a good SEO campaign can help you bring in more traffic than your site has likely ever seen. Although you might need to spend a little money at first, you are certain to make this money back and then some.

  • It is true that in order to rank high in search engines, it is important for websites to incorporate the right SEO plan and strategies. Although businesses can implement the SEO techniques and strategies on their own but it is advisable to hire a knowledgeable SEO company to make the things easier and faster. I am totally agreed with that.

  • @Ali Husayni
    Hi Ali, I really am glad and thankful someone like you has made your experience and knowledge available to the struggling bunches of us, without the funds to invest in an SEO company and besides as mentioned on your blog somewhere they are like used car dealers. I have had a few that scammed me, so slick and I was so inexperienced. I am hoping to rebuild an old asp site to a zencart site php (I like the Cpanel) But after reading your article here It appears I should get you and or your staff involved now early on in the beginning, During October last year I lost many links and tons of traffic. I just guess Google changed their tables and there was no chair there for me. Please contact me and let me know how we can begin! I sincerely hope you find my comment and I hear back from you.

  • 1. Is it must do the optimization of my website during the construction? Or can i do it after the website is completed?

    2. Can I submit my website on my own even if I am not a designer? And if yes which are a) The step to follow? b) Which are the cost for submission to the Google\’s search engine?
    c) Are there any more charges for my site to remain on the top rank?

    Emmanuel F.Mafuru 9 years ago
    • 1- SEO consultants need to be involved with your Web site design/development from the get-go.

      2- Google doesn\’t need submission (although they allow you to submit your site). They simply follow links from other sites to your site and will index it that way.

  • I would like to buy the book called \”Google SEO\”. But i\’m wondering if it\’s true that the secret revealed in the content.

  • I\’d like to say that we highly appreciate your work and your site. My partner in the USA have bought your eBook and enjoyed it. When I visited him, I\’ve read the book as well and all your newsletters. It is a great book and very useful newsletters. Thank you.
    The questions are:
    1.If a site gets to the top or first page some day, what are the chances to stay there or not too far from the top or from the first page for enough long time even with all possible support? And will this support take even more money and efforts than it has taken to reach the top or the first page?
    2. We know that as a rule the winner gets almost all. So, does it matter, if a site is on the fifth or on the twenty fifth page of Google list? Everybody knows according own experience, visitors rarely go farther than second- third page of Google results. And ordinary visitors even do not have any interest about any site\’s Rank.
    I understand, my questions may seem not too polite ones,but they are real life.

    • Thanks Gene,

      1. It depends. In some markets, when you get to the top, you will remain there for a long time and in some markets it gets harder every day to keep your rankings at the top.

      2. In my opinion after the first two pages of Google, the rest have the same value (worthless).
