WHAT WE DO
THE 5 SECRETS TO HIRING THE RIGHT SEO AGENCY
Hello and Welcome to IndianapolisSEO.org!
My name is Erwin and I’m the owner of this website.
You’ve come here because you’re looking for a search engine optimization expert in Indianapolis. Only 2 kinds of people look for this: those who want to learn SEO; and those who want their businesses to rank in the search engines.
This website is for the 2nd kind.
So, you own or manage a business and you would like to have more clients/customers?
Let me guide you on what to look and what to beware of in your search for an SEO to help your business. Let me also help remove some misconceptions about this industry so you know what to expect.
What You Should Know Before Hiring An SEO Company
1. Beware of SEO’s offering a one-size-fits-all pricing model.
There are quite a few SEO companies out there who offer a single price for every client they have. These deals may look attractive as the prices are normally quite competitive. However, you should NEVER choose them.
Every single business is different and unique. Because of that, every business website should also be different and unique. The methods and strategies used to get to the top of search engine results will be different. Choosing one of these firms will either result in a useless campaign or extra hidden costs.
Any good SEO firm should assess each site and make a personalized quote. The cost of the campaign will be different depending on the target market size.
An international campaign will be more expensive than a local firm just targeting the local community. That’s common sense.
Think about it. If you hope to earn some $30,000 more or even an extra million dollars a month for your business, then you can’t expect to pay just $500 a month. The cost of any SEO campaign should be relative to your business’ financial objectives and goals.
Such companies can offer that kind of pricing model because their methods and strategies for all kinds of websites are already one and the same. They are NOT after results. They are after accomplishing their tasks. And that’s it for them!
We do this differently at Indianapolis SEO. We act as your partners here. We make sure you’re ranked for your keywords so you have a great ROI.
2. Check their success.
The Internet makes it pretty easy to get advice and find the best SEO firm in your area. If the firm is good at SEO, you can be pretty sure that they will rank highly in search engine results themselves.
For this reason, visit Google and type “Indianapolis SEO”. Then take a look at the results.
The best SEO companies in your area should appear on the 1st page. By doing this, you can clearly assess their skills and check that they can use SEO on their website.
There’s no point choosing an SEO company which can’t optimise their sites within their local area.
Moreover, the best SEO firms will have multiple listings on the 1st page, and this should make you feel more confident that they can do the same for your business.
Multiple listings on the 1st page is what separates the men from the boys.
How about us?
Well, we’re ranked on the 1st page of Google multiple times. Take a look at the images below for proof.

Results may vary. But as of this writing (April 2015), if you make a search, you’ll see that we are the #1 SEO in Indianapolis according to Google itself!
3. SEO is a unique craft and requires special technical and marketing skills.
Lots of business owners make this big mistake. They think that anyone who knows about computers will automatically know about SEO – or at least “get it” fast.
Some business owners may not realize this and will try to keep their SEO in-house with their web design and IT (Information Technology) departments. However, let me point this out…
If your web design or IT department already knew about SEO, then your site would already be in the top position of the search engines – producing traffic and revenue!
SEO is a very technical skill and web designers and IT people do not know how to do it right. They have NO practical knowledge on how it’s done.
Good web design is helpful to encourage people to stay on your website. But it will do nothing to attract more visitors. Pretty website design is just okay. But just because you’ve built it doesn’t mean people would already come to it.
You see. Web designers and IT people are tech guys. They are NOT marketers. Technology (i.e., good code, great systems, etc.) is their passion and NOT revenue!
At Indianapolis SEO, we turn your website (and online presence) into a client-getting revenue-generating machine!
4. Don’t waste your time on “part-time” SEO’s.
There are lots of courses on the Internet that teach SEO. These courses lead to many amateurs believing that they’re already experts just because some questionnaire online labeled them as “experts”.
For the best results, you need to make sure that you are only dealing with professional SEOs.
It’s because SEO campaigns are time-consuming and need to be done properly. A professional firm will be able to devote plenty of resources to make sure your site dominates the results.
If someone is really good at SEO, it would be a very lucrative business for him. This means that he should not be doing it part-time… because if he was good enough, he would earn lots from it and would take it full-time.
5. Make sure your SEO campaign won’t be outsourced to somebody else.
Make sure that all of the SEO is being done by your contact person and his team. Over half of all SEO firms outsource their work to third parties. This means that you will end up paying more for the same service than if you went direct to the SEO firm doing all the work.
There you have it, hopefully you can use the advice above to find a reliable and reputable SEO firm for your business.
