This is like asking a healthy person whether they still need to eat healthily and exercise regularly. Of course they do! Similarly for SEO, you will ALWAYS need to be on top of your SEO game. Competitors aren’t lazying around doing nothing, market trends can always change, and Google regularly updates their search algorithm. Search habits can change over time, meaning people may search for your services using different keywords. Long tail keywords that are not targeted also account for significant search volumes. Do not ignore those!

About SEO Services
We do not offer full package SEO services anymore. (However, Marcus does offer SEO Consultation)
Why don’t you offer full package SEO anymore?
I decided to consolidate our resources and specialties on Reviews. With our current resources, it is impossible to offer cheap, high quality (and 100% white hat) SEO offerings to a large number of clients.
Because so many clients have very different needs and budgets, it became difficult to accommodate all of them. The cost for a full SEO campaign also rose throughout the years, so quite a number of clients did not have the budget for our services. It became extremely time consuming to create detailed and highly personalized proposals for different clients, and when clients turned it down due to budget constraints or had too high expectations, it felt like our time and resources were not properly spent.
By providing Website SEO reviews, we are able to help clients from a broader budget spectrum. This way, we can stay true to our strictly white-hat SEO roots by giving the BEST advice and recommendations.
I want to do SEO, but I barely have any budget at all. I don’t want to take the risk with low quality SEO packages, but what other choice do I have?
Unfortunately, you can’t always have the best of all worlds. You can learn SEO yourself from this extremely helpful beginner’s guide to SEO. With the knowledge, you might be able to identify the tasks you can accomplish yourself. You can also make use of the plentiful free SEO tools in the market, many of which I personally use. Our very own Website SEO review is also targeted at businesses with not enough budget for long term SEO.
What should I take note of before I hire any external SEO contractors?
First decide if it is the right time to hire an SEO, and what kinds of services you really need. Here are 7 ways you can save money if you are still deciding. Once you have asked yourself the right questions, it is now turn to ask the SEO agency the right questions. Make sure they are trustworthy, and that they explain clearly what they will be providing for you. Avoid agencies that give ‘first page’ guarantees, and definitely look out for companies that use black-hat SEO techniques.

What is the cost of a Website SEO Review?
No matter whether you are a one-man startup, a small local business, or a multinational corporation, you would want to cut costs and maximise profits. Since SEO is a long term investment, any SEO marketing expenditure would add up to the lifetime SEO cost. It makes sense to identify the most highest priority actions that would make the most impactful SEO improvements.
The Review not only tells you the best strategies based on your current budget, it identifies the simple steps to make some of those changes yourself. Some simple changes can make huge impacts, such as keyword usage, or adding internal links – and you do not always need to hire someone external to do it for you.
Similarly, some long term strategies need not involve spending a single cent. Some agencies might ‘encourage’ you to spend on the bells and whistles, inflating their revenue. But because we do not earn any commission from recommending any form of strategies, you can believe in our unbiased advice.
But aren’t there cheaper SEO packages out there, where I can easily pay for 2 to 3 months of those SEO services with this $499?
Yes you are right, and yes you can. But that is all you are getting – 2 to 3 months of cheap, low quality SEO, that might harm you in the long run. I can’t be certain that 100% of those cheap services are bad, but I personally wouldn’t recommend trying. Full SEO services are actually quite expensive, and you should be wary when the prices are so low.
My one time payment of $499 will help you identify the real problems, and provide the best recommendations for solutions. It wouldn’t be too late then to decide which experts to hire to fix the areas that need attention.
I have been penalized by Google. Can the review still help me?
Yes! And if you already know for sure you are under some form of penalty, you can be sure that our top priority is to recommend the immediate steps to get you out of penalty.
