SEO Pricing Comparision

Search Engine Optimization Pricing Comparison

What should an SEO charge to get a client’s website to perform in Google.

What is meant by “perform in Google search results“?

Below are published examples of established SEO firms who post their price lists online (needless to say we linked back to the original source) I charge something similar to the example below.  I’m often mystified by clients who have been counseled to pay for Google Adwords by web designers who do not have the clients best interests in mind: they wanna get paid for the website and suggesting that “all you need to do is buy adwords and…”.

Well Adwords ARE a good solution for *SOME* websites and *SOME* industries, for example IF you sold a product or service to other business owners (B2B or Business To Business), then Adwords could work out to your advantage… but if you were a doctor or a therapist or a divorce counselor…

Your prospective clients *could* shy away from your “sponsored links”, certain industries do not do well if the target audience is jaded against advertising. Those industries would fare much better if they were *magically found* in Google Organic Search Results

SEO Pricing

Search engine optimization is an investment that can continue to grow long after the project is complete. Generally speaking; natural “organic” rankings provide much more traffic than sponsored paid listings (some estimates say 3 to 1). In terms of your return on investment; that makes SEO very attractive. With the influx of new traffic, SEO should more than pay for itself in terms of increased leads and sales.

Primary Tasks in SEO

We perform a site performance audit; reporting your current ranks as well as those of your competitors. We then document our findings; giving you a solid plan of action for the SEO project.

Local niche keywords are simply going to be easier to obtain than global, broad terms. Nobody can accurately quote for SEO unless they know the size of your website, what special problems you may be facing and how competitive you would like to be with your project. The plans above are designed to give you an idea of our price range.
