How to avoid the 5 most common mistakes in SEO
As a business owner, it is important that you are aware of the work involved in SEO and not just hand over the job to someone else. There are plenty of webmasters who claim they can do a better job than you at boosting your website's organic search rankings. If you're willing to pay for this service, it's worth the time and effort to find out where your competitors are ranking their websites or how much their campaign costs before letting them take care of your SEO needs. Here are five mistakes companies make when hiring external SEO consultants:
1. Hiring an unqualified person
Anyone can say they know what they’re doing when it comes to SEO, but that doesn't mean they actually do. Ask them questions about their past experience with SEO and what they've been able to accomplish through their own methods--not just from reading a blog or watching an instructional video online--and if they have experience in your industry and niche market. In this way, you'll be able to pick up on some red flags such as vague answers or things that seem like excuses for why what they're offering is needed or has never been done before by anyone else in the industry (it hasn't).
2. Expecting too much too soon
If you hire someone without knowing exactly what will be done, it's easy for expectations
