Consider this a warning. Your SEO firm could be hurting you.
I know a lot of small businesses who have placed their trust in an SEO agency, only to have their sites all but destroyed through black hat techniques. I’ve seen struggling online startups spend thousands of dollars trying to “skyrocket in the rankings,” and then realize they’ve been scammed.
I don’t want that to happen to you. I don’t want you to waste your money or ruin your site. I wrote this article so you can figure out if your SEO agency is doing good or doing harm.
I’ve organized the article into three parts. First, I’ll explain how to know if they’rehurting you. Second, I’ll explain how to know if they’re truly helping you. Finally, I’ll explain a few things that will help you work with an SEO agency in a profitable way.
