What makes a good SEO professional for your business needs

 

There are so many SEO professionals in the market, so what makes one different from the other? You might be curious because most SEOs say the same thing, they promise delivery and you pay and most of the time nothing happens.

So how do you tell the good SEO professional from the rest?

1. Detailed reports with good reasoning for rankings

There are many SEOs who have no idea what they are doing and what they are up to. This is one of the toughest part about finding a good SEO, there are low budget ones who will resort to spamming and therefore will want to keep budgets low so that they do not have to pay too much to max out profits for their business.

Detailed reports on the ranking improvements and also new suggestions to clients on how to build more or do more for your other keywords. The more keywords, the more traffic and also more profits for the SEO and this is something that can be achieved if they are willing to invest more in making sure it works out for the client.

2. Lessons to marketing staff or business owners on how to aid them in SEO

Getting SEO done up is not just the job of the SEO. There are many marketing staff in charge in the business and there are many SEO signals that need to work together to rank the business well for their given keywords. This is very true especially in this period of content marketing.

The marketing staff departments of the company could do more with writing great content so that the work of the SEO is a lot easier.

The SEO of course could get the help of the marketing department when it comes to content generation. Generating good content means you write with SEO concepts in mind and at the same time able to get good content that people are interested to read and know about.

3. One that lets you know if it is possible

There are many SEOs who over promise and never deliver.

Getting the websites to rank for certain keywords may be really tough even for seasoned SEOs and for someone who knows this and know that the budget offered. It might be a tough play of the game.

SEOs who know they cannot achieve it will say no to projects.

This is to ensure they do not spoil their own reputation and also not to waste the efforts of the company hiring them.

How a newbie to SEO can learn it fast

How a newbie to SEO can learn it fast

There are many reasons why people pick up SEO as a skill that they will want to have and also to keep and work on. SEO is one of the key marketing pillars for their business nowadays and being in the digital age, digital marketing is key to the businesses. Being able to do good SEO will not only help you to be better employable and at the same time able to let you advise people on how to do up their online marketing strategy.
So what are some of the things that you as a newbie of SEO learn this skill fast and also what you should do when you wish to pursue this as a career?

1. Find the correct resources to read and find out more about this skills
There are many websites that are able to teach you SEO skills and there are also many sites that are able to go from the simplest of skills to the tougher ones. My opinion is to learn from the white hat ones first so that you know what is going on and what the correct way of doing things is but you should slowly venture into grey and black hat sites for learning purposes but do not actually apply them.
The good thing about learning a little bit of things from the dark side is so that you are able to truly understand how the search engines actually work and this will invaluable for you in your road towards learning how the google search engine works and eventually becoming a guru in it.
Black hat methods are very interesting because they take on the loopholes of the system and exploit them for ranking purposes, there are actually whiter ways to do them so you could use the principles of the dark side methods to apply them in a clean way for ranking. That has to be slowly learnt, I can’t teach you here!
Read up more from a wide range and learn from various youtube sites too!

2. Have a test site for you to do your SEO training

For anyone who wishes to learn a martial arts, you should know that they should always have a school or a mountain cave to practice their craft. Same thing when it comes to learning SEO, if you are new, you should never try to start off any projects on your own. This is one thing that you should avoid because the chances of screwing up is very high if you are not aware of how sensitive the Google search engine systems can be. There was a period of time that I did screw up one website but luckily it belonged to me which I did eventually recover but not without much down time.
So have fun with a new test site, maybe you can create a directory site, like those that I worked closely with Yi Jun of www.sgsoccerpitches.com to create, she managed to learn the basics of doing up a good and clear title and description, making sure there are enough density of keywords within the post and pages and also have a clear architecture in the way you build the website. The website has since 2015 been the top website in Singapore to search for soccer fields and pitches in Singapore.
Build a good test site for yourself with an interesting topic and you can write extensively for it and also learn to build links to it and find out what links work and which ones doesn’t work and might end up being detrimental to your site instead.
After you have tested out your skills and sure of what you are doing you could start taking up projects for people and start charging them for your work and time and also maybe when you deliver good results to get a certain amount of bonus from them.

3. Get a mentor or go for classes

SEO can be self-taught. I am someone who self-taught SEO through lots of reading and testing and this is something that many people can do but the fact is, it was a long journey and not easy for people to take on if they want to learn it fast so that they can apply it in their career or their businesses.
We took about 4-5 years to get to where I am but this is something that you can shorten if you have a mentor or learn from someone through classes that we conduct.
