Hello, We am interested in hiring somebody for seo. When speaking with potential companies should we be giving them our keywords/website. I have seen people around the forum suggesting not to mention them openly. Also when hiring a company how do you monitor if they are doing all white hat methods? Is it difficult to get banned from google? We have 2 domains both about 8 months old. One is for the blog and one for the website. If we let someone begin with the blog.... in case it gets banned is it possible that google would also ban the website. I am a bit concerned because it seems like many people say they practice gray hat seo. Thank you for any help -Danny.
