How to choose an SEO company

The first thing to be mindful of is how business driven your SEO agency are.

Do they talk about improving your rankings to the first page of Google?

Or do they talk about traffic and sales?

You want to be looking for the latter.


Because the truth is, you could be on the front page of Google for an unpopular keyword and it may not even generate traffic to your site.

Even worse…


You could be at the top of Google and be getting lots of traffic but the sales just don’t convert.

The best rankings are the ones that are easy to generate traffic from AND can convert traffic into sales.

Another thing you should look out for is whether the company talks about

  1. Quality
  2. Quantity

As with anything in business you should most definitely be choosing quality over quantity.

For example, Online Growth Guru’s ability to obtain a backlink on the NHS website for one of our clients proved far more effective than trying to register in 1,000 directories that have no meaning to the industry in which they operate.

Which SEO Company should you Choose?

Your decision will often be based on your gut instinct.

Spread your search far and wide. You don’t necessarily need a company that’s on your doorstep. But it‘s usually better for communication.

It’s not uncommon to have tri-monthly strategy review meetings when undertaking this type of project.

So anywhere outside of a 2 hour drive between yourself and your chosen company could be a hindrance to your progression.



Do I need an Agency or will a freelancer be better?

Of course, the choice is yours but here’s some food for thought.

An agency is all but guaranteed to be more expensive.

However, they probably also have a number of experts to go alongside the SEO campaign.

The most important thing whether using a freelancer, medium sized company or an agency is that you have a focused individual who will spend time getting to know your products and industry.



Does the agency need to be near me?

With the technology we have today, your chosen agency could essentially be based anywhere in the world. However, don’t be afraid of checking out the local SEO talent first.
