How do SEO companies do it ?

by jetsetter883 54 replies
This is something that I've been thinking about for a while. I have visited the websites of several SEO companies and many of them have a small to medium sized staff presumably working with a good handful of client websites. In my opinion, there is simply not enough time in the day to effectively rank all of your client's websites using traditional SEO. As in, all of the conventional white hat SEO theory pertaining to 'creating great content', obtaining high authority links, guest blogging etc would take a millenia to rank numerous websites and would surely require a very large staff to keep on top of this stuff.

So.. what do you guys think? How do they do it? What do they do? Outsource to Fiverr? ODesk? This is something I am very curious to know.. how these small companies can possibly find the time to operate effectively using only professional white hat SEO best practices (or so they say).

    A top SEO company has access to properties on the web that provide great traffic or pagerank. The quality of what they provide is much higher and also a company secret in many cases. It is built on developing relationships over many years. The top SEO companies rarely delve into cheap stuff (but they do on occasion).

      Yea this is very true. They use quality tools and do things the right way (usually).

    Yeah, they typically have their own network of High-PR sites which are super effective. Then they just do some other types of link building such as article marketing, social media, commenting, etc. to fill out the link profile but those High-PR networks they have are the most effective part of their strategy.

    Hey Jetsetter883
    It is a combination of two things. Outsourcing & Software.
    They use software to do the majority of the grunt work for specific tasks & outsource workers for any of the manual tasks that need to be completed.

    Others SEO companies will act as a reseller and will outsource the whole job to another SEO company. In this instance they simply go out and find the work charge the client top dollar then outsource the work to another company for less and pocket the difference. This is referred to as arbitrage.

    I outsource most of my SEO work to companies/freelancers in India and Philippines. They are very reasonable ($200 a month for 4 keywords) and do an awesome job.
    As far as I am concerned, they dont use even automated softwares. These seo companies have tried and tested methods besides, link builders who make good quality backlinks.
    I usually see the backlinks on high pr websites and there are usually very less outbound links from those websites.
    Even I get curious like you sometimes.

    very interesting insights guys. but are most of the outsourced people in india, etc not just trained how to spam? sorry if that sounds silly, but my basis for comparison is the tremendous amount of gigs i see on fiverr etc originating from india for 10k PR3+ backlinks etc. also, many spam comments i see are written in broken english. how could you tell if you are just hiring another spammer? are there really armies of link building geniuses in the far east just waiting to complete the work for bottom dollar ?

    SEO on Google has changed. This happened when Panda was introduced by Google last year. Google now bases a lot on the popularity and security of your site. So it is really hard to satisfy all of the search engines and what is required.

    I still believe in SEO but I also aim to please Google as well.

    I can tell you because I know.

    They use link building services, just like the rest of us.

    As well as that, they're typically constantly buying sites to build networks of their own, as already mentioned above.
