3 Tips To Know How To Hire A Good SEO Company

3 Tips To Know How To Hire A Good SEO Company

A good SEO or search engine optimization strategy is an part of website marketing, as it helps in promoting your site on the Internet. Specifically, SEO is a process of ranking a website in search engines like Google, Baidu, Yandex and Bing for different targeted keywords so that your site comes up in search results whenever users search for your targeted keywords.

If done right, SEO drives traffic to your website.

A good SEO campaign needs good strategy that adheres to Google’s guidelines. If  your site is not using the right SEO methods, Google may permanently ban your website from rankings.

That said, it is necessary to follow the Google-approved practices. To make this easier, you can hire an SEO company to do this for you.

Here are a  few tips on what makes a good SEO company. You can use these tips as red flags to differentiate good companies from bad ones. Here we go:

Cheaper Price

No doubt, It is suspicious when SEO companies have extremely cheap prices. This can be a big difference between what makes a good SEO company good and a bad SEO company, well, bad. While you don’t want to go broke, it is expected to pay a reasonable price and receive high quality service. In other words, refer to the cliché: you get what you pay for. Going for the exceptionally cheap price might even risk your business, as the quality may not be as good. They may keyword stuff and use low quality backlinks, possibly leading to Google banning your website or rank it very poorly.

Therefore, when buying good SEO service from any company you must go for a reasonable package and not just the cheap once.

Check Past Work Projects

It is very advisable to check past projects of any company you want to hire for good SEO service. Examining previous projects done by companies is a great way to see  if they are very providing quality service. You can also check the rank of the backlinks of such websites, as there are many free and paid tools offered to see backlinks quality.

Also, make sure to check the rankings of their past work projects to see how well  their services have helped the sites of their past clients’. Higher rankings on past projects mean the company has provided high quality services with their previous clients. This is a good indicator that they will provide the same high quality service to you.

Check The Content

Moreover, it is well known that good quality content is the backbone in accomplishing a good SEO campaign. High-quality and engaging content should be unique, informative, keyword-enhanced and relevant. While selecting a company you can ask the organization representative how many articles their company provides during a typical SEO campaign. The more content the better backlinks.

Also make sure the keywords aren’t used too frequently—this would be known as keyword stuffing. Keyword stuffing causes poor rankings among search engines, lowers the website’s credibility, and deters users from going on the website.

On the other hand, you want to make sure there is a keyword(s) or, at least, some planned-out strategy involved when the company produces the content. SEO content takes research before content is produced. Make sure this step is taken.

Conclusion

These are a few techniques for choosing the right SEO company to promote your site in search engines. Not hiring a good SEO company may result in backtracking your business than progressing it. So, it is important to take the above tips into consideration before you hire any company.

How to Find Your Entrepreneurial Passion and Purpose

How to Find Your Entrepreneurial Passion and Purpose

I wrote a few articles about starting a business based on something you love doing and are passionate about. I received several responses from people saying they weren’t sure how to go about figuring out what they were most passionate about or how to find their true purpose. So I’m dedicating this article to these issues — how to find your entrepreneurial passion and purpose.

When I work with a new client, the first thing we talk about is lifestyle design. I ask each client, “What do you want your life to look like?” If you designed a business without answering this question, you could create a nice, profitable business that is completely incompatible with your goals in life. You’d be making money, but you’d probably be miserable.

When you’re looking for your life purpose, lifestyle design isn’t a crucial component. However, since we’re talking about entrepreneurial purpose, lifestyle design is indeed crucial to building a business that you’ll enjoy and truly be passionate about.

For example, say you want to spend more time at home with your family. Would you be happy with a business that kept you in an office or out of town much of the time? On the flip side, if you wanted to travel and see the world, how well could you accomplish that goal if your business required your presence, day in and day out, to survive? So start by getting some clarity on your personal goals and spend some time working on designing your life.

At this point, you may need a little prodding, and you may want to hire a coach or mentor to work with you through this process. Many people are very used to the idea that there is a particular way a life “should” be. There are certain milestones most people tend to live by, and if you don’t meet those markers when or in the manner you’re “supposed” to meet them, that can cause some anxiety.

Here’s how to find your passion and purpose:

Give Yourself Permission to Dream a Little

Remember that this is your life and you can live it however you choose. Call it meditation or fantasy, but let your imagination run here. And answer this question:

“If you had no fears or financial limitations, what would your ideal life, one in which you could be totally content and happy, look like?”

Once you’ve figured out your lifestyle design, it’s time to do a little more soul-searching to figure out what you’re truly passionate about. This is a time to really look within and look back.

Specifically, look back over your life history. When were you the happiest? What did you enjoy doing the most? Remember that what you’re looking for doesn’t necessarily have to be an entire job, but can actually be aspects of your past jobs or hobbies that you’ve really enjoyed.

Think About a Larger Life Purpose

Many successful entrepreneurs have earned their place in history by setting out to make a difference in the world. Is there a specific issue or cause that is important to you or that you’re particularly passionate about?

For some, this process of discovery may come easily. You may go through these questions and thought experiments and find the answers quickly. For others, it may be more difficult. In some cases, you may suffer from a generalized lack of passion and purpose in your life.

Sometimes, this can come from having suppressed passion in your life for too long. Sometimes, it can come from eating poorly and lack of exercise. But occasionally, it may have something to do with your internal chemistry or programming. If the latter applies to you, it may be useful for you to seek help in the form of a coach, mentor, or counselor.

In other cases, not knowing your true purpose may be a matter of having not discovered it yet: you may not have found anything that makes your heart beat faster. If this is the case, now is the time to explore!

The Internet is a fantastic tool for learning and exploration. Search hobbies and careers and learn as much as you can about any topic that triggers your interest, then follow up at the library on the things that really intrigue you. Again, remember that this is your life and only you can give yourself permission to explore all that the world has available to you.

How Do You Know When You’ve Found Your True Entrepreneurial Purpose?

I can only tell you how I knew when I had discovered my own — it didn’t hit me like a ton of bricks. Rather, it settled over me, bringing a deep sense of peace and commitment. It felt like I had arrived home and knew exactly what to do and how to proceed.

Everything flowed easily from that point forward. That’s not to say that I found success immediately after that moment. But rather, the path ahead of me was clear, so I knew what to do.

Decisions were easier and came faster to me. And success has come on MY terms, according to my own definitions of what success means to me in my own lifestyle design.

Dig deep, look within, and seek whatever help you need. Once you find that purpose and passion, your life — not just your entrepreneurial life, but your entire life — will never be the same.
