It is amazing. Since the down turn in 2008, every company and living breathing soul is claiming to do SEO or Search Engine Optimization. I am sure there are some well intentioned folks in the industry, but in 6 years of doing search, I can count on one hand the number of companies that can even tell me what they are optimizing for. Here at Kirk, we know three things are crucial to be a great SEO company.
1. You need to understand the technology and what drives rankings. Here at Kirk, we have helped invent technologies like Jungle Torch. Jungle Torch gives us unprecedented insight into what is happening on a site from a search perspective.
2. We have a process that works!. Our average client will see a 200% jump in qualified traffic in the first 6 months and an additional 100% 6 months after that.
3. We eat our own dog food. Do a search for Website Design and Development companies and Kirk is 1# or 2# at any given time. There are over 542 million web pages competing for this term.
4. We have the people. SEO is tough work and with out a large staff to do that work good SEO is impossible!
So, before your hire an SEO company, let them tell you what their SEO plan is and prove their worth.
