Default Questions To Be Asked To SEO Agency Before Hiring.

You need to be very much clear in hiring a SEO company or SEO Agency. Here are few questions to ask them before we assign the projects.

1 – How long have you been in business?
2 – How does your company stay up-to-date on industry changes?
3 – Do you engage in any grey- or black-hat practices?
4 – How do you approach keyword research?
5 – How do you qualify traffic in your campaigns?
6 – How will the success of your campaign be measured?
7 – What types of reporting will you provide?
8 – How available are you for client communication?
9 – Do you have any long-term clients who are satisfied with your work?
10 – Can you provide contact information for references at these companies?
11 – Do you limit the number of clients you take on at once?
12 – Who will be doing the work on my campaign?

Thank you.

One more main point is to have a look at their work portfolio, the sites on which they have worked on and contacting on any one site or more's owner to verify the legitimacy..

Yes, we need to know their work portfolio to know more about the client. If he is having a good and hands of experience in related field we can hire him.

The more portfolio helps in know the person more and his experience will be judged by his work portfolio.

Thank you for sharing informative seo questions with us. People who hire SEO doesn't ask questions mostly but now they will follow your thread. And yes before hiring any SEO he/she should be evaluated on the basis of his work experience. By looking at his previous work to know that he will be effective for your company or not.

Very good details, but can any one give me idea when a web design and SEO company is newbie then what approach is good, is that mean they will never ever get any business even if they have potential.
Can any one also put light on this part?
