SEO Consultant Pricing: Technical Site Audit
Technical SEO consultant located in Santa Monica.
I have 12 years online marketing experience working full-time as the SEO Manager for a multi-million dollar ecommerce website and also for smaller local businesses in Los Angeles.
My vast SEO and digital marketing experience is unmatched by anyone else offering private SEO consultation services in Los Angeles.
Let’s chat and you can let me know how deep you want me to dig into problems site wide or maybe you just want a high-level report of the major things to fix. I can work within your budget.
Investing in SEO, through time and money, can have an exceptional rate of return on your investment compared to other types of marketing, paid advertisements and promotions. Implementing an effective SEO strategy is one of the best ways to reach your target customer and to grow your business. Read my services page to learn what is an SEO audit? so you can see what is involved before we chat.
It is hard to say how much your audit will cost without first reviewing your website, obviously larger websites will be more time consuming to research and recommend fixes, than smaller sites. Large agencies charge upwards of $5,000 for the same services that I offer.
I always follow best practices and stay current with industry changes and trends. I implement white hat SEO tactics so you do not get penalized by Google, Yahoo or Bing for being in violation of their guidelines.
SEO Expert / Guru Scams
Be very wary of the many self-titled SEO experts and gurus that either spam email or cold call you making unrealistic promises of guaranteed #1 rankings or that they can get you on the first page of search results. Unethical SEOs have given the industry a bad name through overly aggressive and manipulative marketing efforts, known as black hat SEO. Their shady tactics violate Google’s guidelines and may result in your site rankings to tank or even worse, have the entire site banned from showing up in Google search.
“While you consider whether to go with an SEO, you may want to do some research on the industry. Google is one way to do that, of course. You might also seek out a few of the cautionary tales that have appeared in the press, including this article on one particularly aggressive SEO: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2002002970_nwbizbriefs12.html. While Google doesn’t comment on specific companies, we’ve encountered firms calling themselves SEOs who follow practices that are clearly beyond the pale of accepted business behavior. Be careful.”
