Have you ever receivedĀ an email (or letter) like one of these below?

Not all SEO (Search Engine Optimization) companies are bad. But you can see some red flags that will let you know that it is a bad idea to do business with this companies.

  • Using Spam - Did you request this information? Unless you searched for them and requested this information, then this solicitation was sent to you is spam (unsolicited email).
  • Promise placement - If the solicitation promises to put you on the front page of the search engines, this is a lie. Nobody can keep this promise unless they pay Google for placement. This kind of advertisement doesn't require they do anything to your site.
  • Technical Jargon - Companies that don't want you to question their methods will use a lot of technical-sounding jargon. Make sure they tell you exactly what they are doing in terms you can understand.
  • Personal Email - If the sender is using a personal email account then it is probibly an indicator they are not associated with a real business.
