    I think other people have said it here too, but the best to find a professional, especially one in the ever changing internet marketing field is by references from other successful affiliates \ companies that get value for their money.
    the best agencies are the ones who don't even need a "sales person". they get their clients from other clients referrals.
    SEO & PPC are relatively easy methods to track as a customer, and you should be able to get a clear insight of your campaigns every 1 week or so to measure the quality of work and then do a recap of all the results you get as compared to what you plan based on your business plan

    I would of thought the best way to find the best SEO companies would be to simply do a search on Google for seo companies.Obviously the best seo companies who knew their stuff would then appear at the top of the search results and the riff raff no where to be seen!

    Well i still say that doing your own seo is the best and cheapest way!.....it is not rocket science as many seo agencies would have you believe!

    But if i was to hire a seo firm.......i would do a seach on Google and see which companies were ranking highly as they obviously know their stuff!

    Hello all,

    Please be aware Ash Ruparell is still swindling money out of people for doing an awful job!! He did it to me recently and again wanted money for a website and SEO work. We had a website put together but then received messages from the developer to say they hadn't been paid and they would shut down our site!! DO NOT WORK WITH THIS GUY!!!! He is still doing bad work and you should not look to work with him!

    Never ever NEVER give a hired or contracted developer or seo guy the access to the domain name or name servers.

    It is usually understandable and necessary to give them access to ftp,the hosting or cpanel backend etc, but by never giving out access to the domain name itself, no developer can EVER take away the site or name for more than 48 hours (mostly 24 hours or less now).

    Any time you do use a hired developer, it is a good idea to make regular backups after major changes so that if there is ever a problem you have the content, artwork etc.

    This isn't true at all. There are too many sites that rank #1 using link spam techniques and when their site gets banned they move to another one. Also being #1 doesn't mean the most sales or the largest contracts.

    Try thinking about inhouse seo, or just find someone from your town to work as a freelancer

    This is why I do it all myself. Too many highflying dorks calling themselves SEO specialists nowadays.

    Ask a SEO company to do the work first, and request to pay them after they've made your goals. I bet you not many will mail you back, let alone 'ever again'.

    Good way of getting rid of them. (Perhaps also for finding the right one.)

    Nevertheless, I'm sorry for your bad experiences. Hope you'll do better next time and that no actual damages will be / have been done.

    But that doesn't safe your website from the bad seos what if they have runied your ranking by their bad seo method so i prefer giving them a demo project like something made on free platform like a free blogspot blog and have them ranked and if it worked then give them a try on the main project.
