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!

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.
