Choosing a search engine optimization company can be a difficult endeavor. There are so many scammers and fly-by-night SEOs that it’s essential to do your research before deciding on which provider to use. One of the most basic ways to filter through potential SEO companies is to use Google search. It makes sense that if a SEO provider knows what they are doing, they would likely be ranking very well for their own terms. Unfortunately, this isn’t always true, and depending on the amount of competition in a particular area, the top-ranked site could actually be ranking by default – meaning there are really no competitors in their area (or the competition is very weak) so they don’t need to do much in order to rank in Google. It could also be the case that the company is using blackhat SEO techniques in order to get that ranking, which means that they will probably do the same for your site should you hire them.

Using Recommendations and Referrals is the best way to find a good SEO provider.

Much like you would do when trying to find a contractor, painter or even a surgeon, one of the absolute best ways to know if they are legitimate is to see what others are saying about their services. If they have a lot of great reviews from past clients, it stands to reason that they are likely going to provide those same results for you as well.

Naples seo companyFor instance, in Naples, one company that stands out to us is Search Mavericks SEO. The owner of Search Mavericks has tons of glowing reviews on LinkedIn, some even coming from other SEO professionals. This means that not only is the company’s work highly recommended by past clients but respected by other SEO professionals as well. As a client of Search Mavericks, we can speak from experience. In the few short months that we’ve worked with the company, they have provided top-notch service that has gone above and beyond what would be expected from a search engine optimization provider. Not only do they help us to dominate the SERPS for our keywords, but they help us to manage our website & servers – even help with securing and setting up our domain names.

While we can’t speak for some of the other providers (I’m sure there are some quality professionals) we can certainly speak for SM. They are, in our humble opinion, the best in town.
