Many small business owners are frustrated by the fact that SEO companies charge so much and take so long to deliver results. On the top of everything, the guarantees are often fuzzy. Many look into do-it-yourself solution to save the money. Some business owners and webmasters firmly believe that SEO is easy.
Is SEO really as complicated as some make it seem? Is there a legitimate reason for SEO specialists to charge so much for their services?
Yes, there is.
To give you an idea, here's how the time breaks down when spent on SEO optimization of an average 6-page website:
Keyword research and analysis: 4+ hours
Competition Analysis (at least 3 competitors): 6+ hours
Updating website HTML code (both text and meta tags) with selected keywords: 20+ hours
Keep website content regularly updated: 3+ hours a week
Working with inbound links: 4+ hours a week
SEO progress reports and other miscellaneous SEO tasks: 4+ hours a week
In addition, a portion of your SEO fee may be used to pay for the listings in selected professional Internet directories.
If you break down a fee you have to pay your SEO specialist by the number of hours they have to work, you will discover that they don't make as much money as it may seem at first. And if it takes an experienced SEO professional 10+ hours of work a week to work on improving your site ranking, how long do you think it will take you? And what if things don't go smoothly? They often don't for novices in any industry.
