Let’s not assume you’re skilled in SEO, or that you get other high-ranking sites linking back to your site and content. There are a million Link Building Services out there (yes I’m exaggerating but not by too much). How do you choose the best one, can you do it yourself and what should you expect from them? The answers can be found below on this page and can help you to make a informed decision on what your business needs.
Get page one in search results overnight! Sorry to disappoint but that usually doesn’t happen, especially when your a one person business. Many sites with great SEO that have other sites linking back to them are supported by a team of specialists. A great service should be able to provide a great service that continues to deliver and is specifically designed for the type of site you have and compliment the content you make. The service you choose should want to know how you’re business is marketed and the products you offer. Do some research (Oh no! Not more research!), if your blogging, writing and marketing you’re no stranger to doing research. It pays off in the long run! You want to research what results you can expect from a good service so that you will have informed questions to ask. You should expect higher rankings and good related inbound links for your site.
Everything is possible online but much like any subject you can name, some will have immediate success and others will take much longer if you “Do It Yourself”. If you’re like me you most likely place most of your effort into creating good content and managing other aspects of your business. A really good strategy will take time and effort that you may already be closely guarding to use for everything else. The question to ask yourself is, can you squeeze one more set of tasks in? Personally my budget includes time, since my business efforts are part time there is a limit to how much of it I can use everyday (gotta sleep sometime!). One more consideration towards doing it yourself is your budget, can you afford it or is your business positioned to help pay for this. Some good services can cost a few thousand dollars and are very much worth it, so consider all of these factors before making a decision.
Why do you need SEO? Depends on your primary strategy in how you gain exposure to your targeted audience. But (you knew that was coming) no matter how you initially build an audience, over time you will look to more ways for continued growth and exposure. Being competitive and adaptive to more than one strategy will position your business for the long term. Is your business ready?
