Mistakes while Outsourcing SEO & SMO Projects | Scaling Performance of SEO Project

    1. There are 100’s of SEO projects outsourced from US, Canada, Australia, Russia, UK and many other countries in the world to India. These IT companies and Digital Marketing agencies having more than 100’s of projects under few SEO professionals or experts. One professionals have around 4 to 20 projects. Here SEO experts are hired on the basis of number of projects he/she can handle at a time.

Mistakes while Outsourcing SEO/ SMO

There are various scenarios where you can’t catch the SEO frauds going on in the market. Some of them are listed below –

Third Party Outsourcing

This is a very common mistake done while outsoucing your SEO website. Your SEO project is given to any first party company in US or any other country in the world. But your project is than transferred to many other companies or freelancers in the world. The real work on your project is done some where else from a poor quality expert and that leads to poor quality of SEO. Every party in between is getting their commission, so the actual price reaches to the expert is very low. This is not only done in SEO, but also in every kind of projects online.

The best way to check it just ask your expert to switch on their PC tracker where you can track the location of the expert through it’s IP address. Always hire first party companies by visiting their place because some of the companies even do not have their own space, they just pass the projects from here to there and earns huge commission on your projects thus leads to degrade the quality of your project.

Check Company Profile Reviews

Never forget to check the company reviews on Google Review, Glassdoor or any other standard corporate Review book. Check every aspect of reviews about your outsourced company i.e employees feedback about the company, company environment, location etc. if you are fully satisfied by the company than only outsource your project from that company.

Outsource to New Reputed Companies

Don’t go for a highly experienced company. Just go with the new and a reputed company, who is performing well in the industry. I won’t suggest you the companies because than it would be a publicity blog and i don’t want to make this blog as a publicity blog.

According to me just hire a SEO expert for all your website, i know it would be costly but it will provide you the best results in the industry. Your expert must have good content writing skills with good experience in SEO. You can blast the industry within few years if you hired a good SEO expert.

One basic thing about these companies is that they charge very less amount of money for these SEO projects. If you are paying around 200 to 400 Dollars for a project than your project is at moderate work flow i.e 4 to 12 hours work on your in a month. If you are paying less than 200 USD means no work on your project only dummy social bookmarking and directories submissions are done. If you are paying above 400 USD than you are among the highest paying client to that SEO Company. Now, I am going to tell you how you can measure the SEO performance of your website or project.
