How to Find the Best Miami SEO company

By Jason Hawkins on May 6, 2019

As the leading Miami SEO Company, we often receive phone calls from various industries requesting SEO. In Miami, FL it is very competitive in nearly any industry you can imagine. Savvy consumers will often shop the market which is a fantastic thing to do. It allows you to compare service offerings, hear what the company believes in, and see if you are a great fit for one another. For some business owners, they do not know the ins and outs of SEO so it makes choosing an SEO company extremely difficult.

The goal of this post is to give you clarity on what you should look for and how to find the best SEO company in Miami.

Make Sure the Miami SEO Company Has No Contracts

For that reason, you should definitely look into a company which does not require you to sign contracts. Most companies who are confident in their work will offer month to month agreements. This is also advantageous so if you experience any temporary hardship with your business, you will not be on the hook to pay a marketing agency in Miami.

Just because a company doesn’t have contracts, it does not mean that SEO will start kicking in and generating you leads quickly during month 1. It is very rare that any SEO company can hit a home run in less than one month. If that is the sort of results you are looking for, you should consider doing PPC advertising in Miami.

Make Sure The Miami SEO Company Has Good Reviews

This will allow you to see the experiences of past customers. To take it one step further, you can always reach out to the people you have found in the review. Ask them what website they own. You can always use tools like to gauge the success of the campaign. You can then ask the marketing company if they are still working with that client.

Also, some companies will give you fantastic results but have poor communication. Other companies may give poor results but have fantastic communication. You certainly want to make sure the company you are going to be paying hundreds or thousands of dollars to each month has the ability to get you fantastic results and great communication.

Another great idea for finding the top SEO company in Miami is to call active clients. The Miami SEO company is proud to have plenty of the top businesses in Miami as clients and we’d be happy to share them with you as part of your due diligence process.

Make Sure That Miami SEO Company Ranks!

This tip might sound obvious but when combined with everything sometimes it may get lost in the shuffle. If you are considering using an SEO company, the proof is generally in the pudding. Does their own website rank? You should definitely answer yes if you are seeking the best SEO company in Miami.

If you have been solicited for SEO services, no matter how fantastic everything sounds, price included, buyer, beware. Agencies that rank very well often do not need to utilize outbound telesales to obtain clients. The rankings from our website keep us very busy with inbound leads so be sure to not fall victim to an outbound telesales SEO company.

Ranking for any keyword related to Miami SEO company is no easy task. Keep in mind, you are battling against all the companies that say they can rank your website. It can take years upon years to successfully rank for very tough keywords.

Lastly, rankings alone are not the holy grail. That’s right. There is something called Blackhat SEO which does not abide by Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. In short, it is like a short cut that Google does not like. Some companies do this to quickly get some sales, then their website gets penalized.

Ask – Who Will I Work With At The Miami SEO Company?

In this industry, the largest costs that an SEO company will typically have is the cost of skilled employees. Many SEO strategists or project managers can require salaries in the $70k per year range. For this reason, some companies will hire entry-level project managers. We’ve found this out from our clients who have previously chosen another company and subsequently canceled due to a lack of results.

Here is how it works. You will be given a fantastic pitch by an SEO sales veteran but once you move forward, you will get “transferred” to the person who will manage your account. At some companies, this is an entry-level project manager with 1 to 2 years of experience. This is how companies maintain profitability and keep prices low. At The Miami SEO company, we encourage you to ask about the experience of the project managers that you will be working with. No matter which company you are considering, ask what the project has accomplished! Usually, when you are very good at SEO, you will have some side projects that are ranking well and earning side-income!

Setting Expectations

Lastly, be sure that no outlandish promises are being made. You may ask questions that are extremely valid like, “How long will it take for me to get results?” Keep in mind, that is a question based on the opinion of the person you are speaking with. No one truly knows the exact time. Historical ranges are typically given for similar industries however keep in mind the following:

An older website is typically easier to rank than a website that is 15 years old. A website that has a significant amount of content is typically easier to rank than a website that has very weak content. A website that has a blog which is frequently updated is easier to rank than a website that doesn’t even have a blog on their website. A website that has proper on-page SEO on all pages is easier to rank than a website without any on-page SEO. A website with very high quality, relevant industry backlinks will be much easier to rank than a website without any backlinks. In short, these are just a few important factors but there are many more. How websites are ranked is purely algorithmic which makes it impossible for anyone to give an exact time but again, it’s usually easier to give “ranges”. A local painter will typically rank faster than a competitive eCommerce website like a t-shirt business. Always keep in mind, Google is just an algorithm.

If you’d like to see how the best Miami SEO Company can help you, give us a call. We’re certainly one of them.
