How to Hire and Manage an SEO Agency

Modern Search Engine Optimization is challenging, and many companies turn to an outside SEO agency to help them navigate the world of Google and to get their website in front of their searching customers more frequently.

But if you don't know the ins and outs of SEO, how do you know how to find the right SEO agency for your company? And once you hire them, how can you be certain that your SEO agency is giving you professional service? Finally, even if you're convinced the SEO agency you hired is ethical and professional, how can you help them to do their best job for your company?

• Know the right questions to ask when shopping for an SEO agency
• Help you to evaluate the basics that any professional SEO agency should be getting right
• Understand your role in the relationship with your SEO agency
• All of this without having to become an "SEO expert" yourself
