When I started looking for a company that has SEO services, I really did not know what I was looking for. I was going off the advice of a friend who told me that if I wanted the transition from my brick and mortar business to the online retail world, then I would need a company that handles the SEO side of things. I did a search and picked one of the companies, but it was not the right fit for me. They did great at first, but they did maintain my website or the SEO part that I desperately needed to stay on top of the search engine results.
Most people will not find my website without doing a web search. When they first did a web search for me initially, business was booming because I was close to the top of the results page. I needed more than that though as the days turned into weeks and months. I watched my site disappear from the first page to the second, then third and even beyond. Business dried up rather quickly, but the company I hired would not help me as much as I thought they would.
Rather than try to get them to continue to help me, I did more research on SEO companies. That is how I found the one that I have been using for the last two years. They do not abandon their clients like the first company did with me. They understand that this is a changing world, every single day, and they make sure that my website stays relevant. Business quickly picked back up as I started gaining more new customers. They have not helped me get top status on the search engine results, but they have helped me to stay there too. There is nothing more important than that for a business like mine!
