How Are Our SEO Companies Ranked?
We rank our comprehensive list of top SEO companies based on three highly influential factors that every business and website owner should consider when hiring an SEO company: price, location and number of employees. Why are these factors so important? We’ll discuss them in detail below.
The price that you pay for quality SEO is obviously important because it affects how you budget for monthly and yearly expenses within your business. However, the field of SEO is still relatively new compared to other business-related marketing expenses, causing many business and website owners to be uncertain of an acceptable price range for quality SEO services.
Let’s establish a baseline for these expenses right here. Throughout our research, we’ve found that sucessful, quality SEO services should be realistically priced at approximately $3,000 – $4,000 for a basic plan including initial setup fees and all the features included.
For more inclusive SEO plans, prices will likely increase to a range of approximately $7,000 -$9,000. However, many business owners and webiste managers see a positive ROI for these services and often only have to pay this amount of money for the service setup and initiation. After the initial moth, prices commonly drop to a monthly fee of several hundred dollars (which again varies depending on the extensiveness of your SEO plan).
Much like pricing, location plays a key role in your choice of an SEO company because location is tied to culture, business expenses and client visits. To elaborate, consider the differences between a company based in a rural area as opposed to a company based in a large city. There are advantages and disadvantages to both locations, but we’ve found that rural SEO companies ranked higher in our 2013 list.
It is possible that more rural SEO companies ranked higher because they are based in a less distracting environment and don’t have the on-goings of a bustling city to detract from their work. Or it could be that rural businesses may pay less in building rent or property taxes, and so do not have to charge as much for their services. This could also lead to more finances set aside for face-to-face client visits. Whatever is responsible for the underlying cause of our findings, please make note that location can impact your relationship with an SEO company.
At SEO Companies Ranked, we take employee numbers into account when considering the top SEO companies because company size does play a key role in how an SEO company functions. However, a larger number of employees does not necessarily mean that an SEO compnay will rank higher. On the contrary, we’ve found that SEO companies with a relatively small number of full time employees do much better in our ranking system. We suspect that the main reason for this is teamwork.
If an SEO company employs hundreds of professionals, these people likely aren’t going to have clear communication practices or much of a sense of teamwork. On the other hand, if an SEO company is a bit more limited in size the professionals who work together will likely have a greater sense of teamwork and group responsibility – both of which are great for high quality SEO.
