5 SEO Tactics For Amateurs And Pros

by Admin on October 1, 2010

Here are six aspects of SEO that are not often discussed out in the open.  These tactics are good for those who either are amateurs wanting to learn SEO for their own website or pros who just need to make sure all their bases are covered.  These tips are also great for those who want to hire an SEO company, as these are tips you will need to make sure that the potential SEO company in question is doing.

1. Love SEO: If you’re doing SEO for your self or clients, you need to love what you do.  Without having a passion for SEO, it won’t go anywhere.  This is something that applies to anything and everything you do in life.

2. Be Nice: Trash talking other SEO’s is not the way to go.  If anything, it just makes you look ridiculous and immature.  Name calling and trash talking is for grade school.  No one will take you seriously if you act like a twelve year old. Treating people with respect is paramount.

3. Link To Others: Linking out to others for free is kind and useful.  Obviously this isn’t something you should focus time on, but if you know of something appropriate to link to, do it.  Small favors like that usually get returned, and when you’re doing a lot of small favors for a lot of people, suddenly you’ve got a lot of small favors coming back.

4. Write More: A lot of SEO has to do with the content, so being able to write is key.  Even if you’re writing little bits every day, the more you write, the better you get.  The better the content, the more Google loves it.

5. Set Up Mini Sites/Blogs: This goes with the above.  The more you’ve got out there, the more Google will see, the more tools you have to use.  Also, this will help you get better at writing, or at least give you motivation to.

7 Reasons To Hire an SEO Consultant

by Admin on September 25, 2010

Enlisting outside help should be on your SEO to-do-list. You can’t be expected to do everything your self, and you’ll need to hire SEO Consultants just to help out a little. Here’s the top seven reasons why to hire SEO consultants.

1. You Need Specialized Expertise

Some people know certain SEO niches better than others. Some people know Social Media better, some know content generation and backlinking better. It all depends on a person’s specialties. You can’t be expected to know everything your self!

2. You Can Learn A Lot From An Outside Expert

Even if you’re an SEO expert, you can’t be expected to know everything. Having an extra brain around with extra ideas is always a plus. Some people have done things you haven’t before.

3. You Should Double Check Your Strategies Before You Start Them

While building a strategy, it’s easy to forget something, put something extra in, or just do something wrong. Usually a second or even third person to review it before implementing it can help. The outside SEO Consultants can catch any mistakes that are made.

4. Benefit From Collaborating With Other SEOs

Don’t you find it refreshing to work with other people? I know I do. Sometimes it’s tough doing things by your self. Get some help with a consultant and take some stress off.

5. A Consultant Can Help You Talk To The Higher-Ups

One of the hardest things to do is get approval and funding by your superiors to try new things, or do the things you already know will work. A second voice to help convince your superiors that what you’re doing is right is more than a good idea, it’s a fantastic idea!

6. SEO Is Too Much Work

SEO is a lot of work, and no one should have to bear that burden alone. With outside help, responsibilities can be delegated and the stress load can be removed so that no one person is stressing out over a lot to do. Things will also get done a lot faster.

7. An Outside Point Of View On Unforeseen Issues

It’s possible that you haven’t experienced everything yet. No matter how long you’ve been in the SEO business, there’s a good chance you haven’t seen it all. Luckily, a consultant may have seen the particular issue you’ve run in to. They’ll know exactly how to fix it and things can run smoothly!

Getting an outside consultant isn’t wrong, it’s actually encouraged. Do what you feel is right and what is needed the most for your SEO campaigns.
