    We all know that SEO is unpredictable and to select a perfect SEO provider is not that much easy.
    Can anyone let me know what are the things i should consider while selecting a person for SEO services.

    Thanks in advance...!!

    Here's a guide I posted on another thread in November. In addition to these guides, you should make sure the person who does your SEO is competent with the type of SEO you're looking for (local SEO, YouTube SEO, black hat SEO, white hat SEO, etcetera).

    SEO is snake oil! Scammers, all of them!
    :joke:
    I offer SEO services (outside the forum) and I'm not even surprised that you said none of them worked. You do have to be careful when you're searching for an "SEO specialist" since there are many people who may not even have experience ranking websites, which is probably why revivalpixel was asking for a guide. Although, you've been here since 2009, so you've probably already seen numerous threads about people asking "how to rank a website for a client".

    I had massive drawbacks, got addicted to an online game again for at least 3 years then got back to SEO world and everything seemed to changed, still kept my websites, although they would have been 10 times better than what they are now. I also lost many nice SEO friends on here and digitalpoint, they haven't been online for years.

    SEOs would like to "continue" working, but at what cost? Efforts are certainly useless if there is no gain at all.

    Violet: I knew someone who was addicted to that MMORPG Runescape 7 years ago. It got to the point where he stopped spending time on his hobbies and started playing that game all day. It's really a shame when that happens.

    Lime: Well then, welcome back to the world of SEO! SEO still works, although you're right about there being quite a bit of change. Since you haven't had success with hiring SEOs in the past, are you considering learning how to do SEO on your own now or are you going to focus on other methods to procure traffic?

    2. Do online research for SEO Company you are interested through forums, blogs? This will give a clear picture on the company's reputation in the market.
    3. Contact company existing and past clients of the company to know whether the services being offered by the company are convincing or acceptable.
    4. Choose quality work rather than company with lower prices.
    5. Experiment with the services of the SEO companies by buying small packages before handling them a huge chunk.

    Just keep buying HIGH PR backlinks + contextual.

    And those contextual is not from forum profile/signature, blog comment.

    It must come from content/article, or authorities backlinks. & relevant with your niche.

    Extra, add some socials signal backlinks too.
