Question Outsourcing SEO



New Member
What do you guys think about outsourcing SEO? I've been looking on upwork, but I'm wary of giving other people access to the server in case they mess up the website or something worse. What do you guys think? What procedures do you put in place for protection?

There is a big difference between outsourcing and hiring a freelancer / contractor.

Outsourcing is mostly you selling a service ( such as SEO ) and then paying someone else to do the work someone has paid you to do.

Hiring Freelancers on places like Upwork, swings and roundabouts to be honest as most of them do not have a tangible trace of their work or reputation outside of Upwork or other freelance site.

Which in most cases means you have to trust what they say over doing your own research. That' said, I am listed on Upwork ( although never got a project from it ), my experience is people who use Upwork want something done cheap rather than paying a professional the correct costs of what they are asking.

As with everything in this world, you get what you pay for.

Outsourcing is a very old practice of hiring officials for performing certain tasks not within the premises but from outside. There are certain tasks on which an organization may not have a great hand. The result of this can be below the expectation or completely opposite of what we may be expecting therefore in such case it is better to hire an individual or a team of individuals to raise your profits and save your time.
When these principles are laid into the world of SEO it is known as SEO outsourcing.
Outsourcing a thing like SEO in today’s world for the growth of a business can prove to be very beneficial for increasing profits.

1. Outsourcing gives you a wider range of choices from across the globe to choose a service whose idea satisfies you or is ready to work according to your terms.
2. Outsourcing saves time. Time is a big element for any business as every minute is precious. Now the time you will be wasting in understanding learning and then implementing a process can be saved by just hiring the person who is well versed with that job.
3. The above point leads to another advantage and i.e. long term solution. This plays a key point when we talk about SEO outsourcing. SEO is not a game of gaining benefits for not only a day or two but you need to have a solution that stays for long and SEO outsourcing can be of great help.
4. The key benefit of SEO outsourcing is you can get an expert hand. Rather than giving the task of ranking your website which is very crucial for any business to a novice it is better to hire an expert.

Outsourcing SEO services is nothing to worry about as in the present scenario every business is doing so and if you are not taking advantage of this you are keeping yourself somewhere behind to reach sky-high limits.

Things to be kept in mind while hiring a company for performing SEO can be-
1. Check the reputation of that organization.
2. Read there terms and conditions carefully and also tell them your terms and conditions
3. Perform all the analysis for calculated risks.

In my opinion you can also checkout this digtal marketing agency (MakeWebBetter) as they provide service at quite a reasonable price.
