The 5 Most Important Tips to Know Before Hiring a Professional SEO Partner

Brought to you by Xivic, a team of big thinkers offering the best in digital product development and search experience marketing for over 20 years.

Having a hard time building your SEO? Here are a few things to know before bringing an SEO partner onboard.


Do your homework

Ask the candidates for a list of websites that they worked on. Visit different search engines and play around with keywords to see where their past projects rank.


Check their references

Ask them for a client list, current and past. Ask for contact information so that you can find out more about each candidate's background, work ethic, etc.



Steer clear of candidates who won't freely discuss their methods in detail. Their review of your website should include "on page" and "off page" optimization.


Ranking #1

If the candidate tells you that they can guarantee a #1 ranking for your website, turn around and run in the other direction. This is a red flag, and most SEO experts consider this response highly unethical.


Local search

If your company relies on local search marketing as well as national, make sure the candidate is experienced at both. Local SEO techniques differ from national and are very important to brick and mortar businesses.

Last but not least...
