How To Hire The Right Pittsburgh SEO Agency

When trying to find the right SEO partner for your business, it’s easy to get lost in your research. To make the hiring process easier, you need to have a well-defined set of steps.

First, you need to determine your goals and decide what you want to achieve by partnering with a specialized company.

Then, continue with these steps:

Step #1: Evaluate Their Work

Each agency’s track record stands as proof of its capabilities, resources and creativity. Make sure to carefully analyze their past projects to gain information about their:

  • Industry experience
  • Ability to deliver successful projects
  • Type of clients they have served

Step #2: See Which SEO Tools They Use

Most companies use expensive SEO tools to craft their strategies and gather performance data like Ahrefs, SEMrush, Moz, KWfinder. These are critical for developing a successful SEO strategy in the long run.

They can help:

  • Collect data about your competitors
  • Identify the most relevant keywords
  • Get information about backlinks

  • And more

Without the valuable assistance of these tools, your business can miss out on significant opportunities that could weaken your rankings. This is why you should ask each prospective candidate about the type of tools they use and how they will shape their strategies.

Step #3: Learn About Their Team

It’s best to do a quick background check on the people who will work on your project. Make sure to learn about their:

  • Experience level
  • Industry knowledge
  • Level of commitment
  • Accomplishments

This will help you ensure you have a well-rounded team in charge of your project that will increase the probability of project success.

Step #4: Read Their Client Feedback

Make sure to read their clients’ reviews of their work as they will provide you with first-hand information about these agencies. This will help you gain insight into their:

  • Reliability
  • Transparency
  • Flexibility
  • Leadership
  • Company culture
  • Customer service

How previous clients describe their experience with an agency can weigh a lot in your final decision.
