"I first started working with Aaron a number of years ago on a mutual client's website. We really turned that business around, and today they're ranking on page 1 for all of their target terms, with a much-improved look and user experience as well. Aaron did the vast majority of the work on this project--I just offered a little specific guidance here and there. Since then, I've worked with Aaron on a number of other projects as well, and been very impressed with his knowledge of SEO. In fact, when I get requests from potential clients whom I cannot take due to a conflict with an existing client, I send them to Aaron."
"I own PrintingCenterUSA and Aaron has helped us grown our online rankings over 8 years. He has guided us through link penalties, multiple site redesigns, and condensed our website. He is always informing us about Google algorithm updates helping us stay one step ahead of our competition. We rank 1 for Calendar Printing, Booklet Printing, and Catalog Printing.”
"I hired Aaron Rains to improve the ranking of my website after going through at least a dozen different SEO providers over 5+ years. My site had consistently ranked very poorly for years. In less than a year after Aaron took over the SEO, my website’s rankings significantly improved, with it ranking on the first page for many relevant keywords. I also saw a significant increase in traffic to the website, and for the first time in years my website actually started to generate business. I highly recommend Aarons Rains. "
"Aaron has been great to work with, as he is always coming to the table with new ideas. He has been assisting with our SEO for the last few years. Our company has seen consistent increases in Google key terms. This is huge for us being a company that solely sells online. I would recommend Aaron's services to others. ”
Tactics And Strategies They See Working
What are a few of the tactics and strategies you've seen working well lately for a site such as mine?
Why You should hire a SEO consultant and benefits of hiring a SEO consultant?
You should hire a SEO consultant because you want to improve visibility of your website, want to attract more traffic, want to get more sales and leads. These benefits and reasons are sufficient to hire a SEO Consultant.
Should I go for SEO Consultant or hire a SEO Consulting Agency? What’s the difference?
You should first go with a SEO Consultant only as he is experienced and can recommend you and guide you on what needs to be done on your website, if your website need a agency then a good SEO consultant like me will recommend you to go with a agency or connect you with the right agency to get your SEO Job done.
Difference between a SEO Agency & SEO Consultant is a Agency can help you with big tasks as they already have a team of SEO’s, Writers, backlink builders so this can get a big task done fast while a SEO consultant is a single person which might slow the process but you get expert advice and you can be assured that work you get is top notch.
Why do you ask it: You want to ask this question because you want to make sure you hire a consultant who has expertise in your industry. Not to mention working on a website that has thousands of pages. There are many ways to execute strategies that will increase rankings but make sure they practice Google guidelines and take in consideration how Google's use BERT to adjust rankings
Reporting if the job is successful, and understanding
How often do you report on the job you're doing, and how do I know if it's successful?
SEO reporting is not as complicated. You want to make sure you start with a baseline. How much traffic are you currently getting, how many keywords are currently ranking on the website, and overall keyword rankings? In my past experience, set a 3-month Goal based on these metrics. SEO will change from week to week so monthly reporting is vital but be open to allocating resources to the opportunity that may appear each month that will bring cash to the bottom line.
Link building approach
What Is Your Link Building Strategy?
Why do you ask it: Link building can make or break your SEO strategies. Google still puts a lot of importance on backlinks but they continue to enforce their guidelines. There are a lot of link schemes and blog networks you want to stay away from. The days of getting dozen of links each month are gone. Work on the quality of links and focus on creating real partnerships with the local community and experts in your online industry. Follow Google's rules and make sure to use the No-Follow attribute for paid or advertising links.
How long does it take to see positive SEO results?
Start with a 3 month SEO strategy. Normally in my experience, the first month is fixing technical issues and planning. Once you execute new content and start backlink it takes a month or even longer to see new keywords and increase of rankings. Meet weekly and review positive and negative changes. Be aware that Google updates the algorithm weekly so you will see fluctuation. 3 months is a good amount of time to analyze your progress.
Working with competitors
Are you working with any other website in my industry?
Most SEO will tell you if they are working with competitors in your space, "This is up to your discretion, whether to work with them." To be honest, you want to work with an SEO consultant who has worked in your space and understands the type of content and strategies to rank in your queries.
Who you will talk with on a regular basis
Who will I be talking with on a regular basis?
You want to make sure you have direct contact with your hirer. I personally prefer a weekly meeting, project manager board "Trello", skype or slack channel to help communicate. When communication breaks down, work does not get done. SEO can be active as it can change daily, so be able to communicate what is happening with ranking or taking advantage of what is happening in the world can impact SEO.
What are my cost expectations?
SEO is ongoing and you should not invest in a consultant if you can't afford it. Don't hirer if you need a fast fix, unless you need an SEO audit but more than often it won't save your website. Investing SEO services as a plan to increase free traffic for the future of your online business.
