    Hey,

    recently i got in touch with a SEO company.

    They offered me 15 keywords for about 300 Euro a month in .com .fr .co.uk .de so 60 keywords in total.

    guaranteed 50% of kewords in top 10 in 3 months.

    They wanted twice as much for Top5 in 6 months

    My question, is it worth to pay this much for such service?
    Does top10 is even worth?

    Wow mate that's way too expensive, there are cheaper services here in BHW that could do the trick without spending that much, I guess. Do your research on them!

    keywords have about 500k searches,

    well guys if you have any services to offer im here since i need it for the next month.

    Also is it even worth to rank in .de .co.uk?

    I used .com Seo service in the past and with little effort, i was in top 10 in .com and like top 30 in .de .co.uk

    Depends on you keywods and the competition - If you can monetize on the keywords by being on page 1, then it sounds like good business. As long as income exceeds 300 euro..

    What references do the company have? It's a lot of money 300€ per month, but again.. If you can make 1-2000€ per month by ranking on the keywords, 300€ is not a lot. It's relative I would say

    they seem legit and experienced, but my last question.

    Shall I rather start with .com for ~150 Euro? Is it big of a difference in the end?

    Depends on the market you want to enter. .com works in US and UK, maybe Canada. But not in france or germany!

    How would we be able to answer that? It's your business isn't it?

    If so, you should know your earnings per visitor and thus be able to determine if it's worth it or not yourself.

    Without the long tail keywords? just the main/seed keywords? What are the level of competition of those keywords?

    If you are able to replicate the work do it yourself

    Generaly speaking when someone guarantees results in such a short time spam it usually means a scummy service.

    That seems way too low, $300 per month and they guarantee top10?
    Doesn't seem legit imo, seems way too good.

    Probably scam.
    No person knowing even a thing about SEO will "guarantee" in top rankings no matter how easy the keyword is. Guarantee literally means refunding money and time spent on website goes wasted, an actual professional SEO provider will not waste time on the website and still offer refund making his time go wasted.

    What marker are you trying to target ?

    " .com .fr .co.uk .de so 60 keywords in total. "

    Are you selling to Germany and France and the UK?

    That is a very bold guarantee to make when they know very little about your vertical or targeted keywords.

    As an SEO that has worked in an agency for high profile clients, as well as in-house in very competitive verticals, one thing that I steer clear of for all of my previous clients and management team is guaranteed results. SEO is just too volatile in my opinion.

    On the other hand, I feel like I can outrank any SEO out there if I have the time and budget. And the proposal you got just seems to be too short of a timeline for too little budget.

    It is most likely too good to be true. And even if it does work, there is no telling how long it will last.

    If you have any SEO skills, I'd recommend optimizing your own sites and investing that money in quality content (long form or something backed by actual research or a survey). As you get your content and optimization together, you can then take steps to get some authoritative links (which you can easily invest in here on BHW).

    What happens if they cannot get you those rankings within 3 or 6 months? Would they refund?

    Truly, it depends on your keywords. Can that company guarantee top 10 ranking for keywords like SEO, Mobile, MacBook and so on. Not possible. Clarify your all doubts/ questions before you join them on board.

    I think you're only risking penalties which such "keyword chasing" services. Such practices are outdated since 2012. Think about how many $$ you need for 1 quality backlink and their monthly price?? I think they only want your money, and even if they deliver some results on short term your sitrs will be penalized soon (spammy links which work 2-3 months in best case before drop). First, you need a quality long- term strategy (hire some experienced to do that for you), and them search for providers...

    This way you'll only loose money and risk penalty.

    Just to clarify:

    They offer no refunds

    They offer to be ranking these keywords for free if they cannot make it until the end of the agreement which is 12 months

    These are few of the keywords:

    Elo boost
    Lol elo boost
    CSGO boost
    World of Warcraft gladiator

    A) Any SEO Company that guarantees rank is kind a joke in the SEO community here.

    B) $300 Euros is NOT an expensive price for a month at all (ignoring the ridiculous guarantee) IF they are actually good professionals...if anything the price is oddly low.

    C) Asking you to lock yourself into a full YEAR agreement when they haven't proven themselves is suspicious in my mind.

    Why don't you ask them what their game plan for your site would be, what you get for $300 a month and then post their response here. If nothing else it should be good for a laugh.
