Please read my post so you know what I mean by managed SEO...

I’m looking for more of a managed SEO service where I provide a URL and a main keyword and then the rest is taken care of… I don’t want to worry about link profiles, link velocity, pandas, hummingbirds, and all that jazz...

I just want to create quality content and then let the managed SEO service take care of the rest (i.e.: ranking for the main keyword as main priority, and of course LSI keywords as that’s inevitable in this SEO climate).

That way as my SEO budget increases, I may simply keep sending more URL’s and the main keywords to my managed SEO service provider that is keeping abreast of all the latest SEO developments… so they can make sure I get and stay ranked for the long term no matter what the Google update is called (thus they include the ‘click here’ and ‘brand’ and ‘LSI’ links on my behalf… and do whatever else is necessary for my organic success).

For example...

(Month 1) - I send my manages SEO company 1 link and a main keyword I want ranked for that link... they figure out the rest and get to work indefinitely.

(Month 2) - I notice a rise in rankings and a bit of extra income, although not enough to justify adding an extra link to my account and the company keeps working on the 1 link I have sent them to begin with.

(Month 3) - I'm ranking #1 and income is above expectations and I send my managed SEO company 1 more link and a main keyword I want ranked for that link... they figure out the rest and get to work indefinitely... so now they are working on 2 URL's with 2 main keywords to rank for. Of course link #1 is now more of a maintenance task than specifically a 'let's get ranked' task as that has already been accomplished.

Month 4... Month 5... Month 6... And So On... Scale up to a possible infinite URL's and keywords as my site keeps growing and growing and growing!

Whether the managed SEO company uses and boosts past links... creates new links... uses social media techniques... press releases... articles... blogs... forums... etc... I don't mind a long as the job gets one in a professional manner that will stand the test of time (i.e.: is a permanent solution that will evolve over time to adapt to the changing SEO climate and thrive in doing so)... I'm looking for QUALITY work that I may rely on as I feel that the service providers I have used in the past have been detrimental to my rankings.

Please no promotional or marketing messages offering your services... I am looking to hear from other people in regards to their ongoing success story with a particular SEO service provider... just as when I buy health products I largely base my decisions on real user reviews, and would like to adopt that same approach in finding a suitable SEO partner from real reviews and feedback.

Looking forward to your responses

    What's your budget and niche?

    What you are asking may not be possible on what you are looking to spend.

    Get an SEO plan and not link building.

    If you want to achieve your SEO goal in each and every month then you stand no
    chance in the SERP. That's not how it works, sometime you need to give a little time
    than what you are ready to offer.

      I'm in the health niche and I don't want to talk about budgets until I find the right service provider that can deliver... I'm not looking for a sales pitch based around my budget

      that is why I am asking for "managed SEO"... I didn't request a "link building" company although link building (all forms) always have and always will be relevant in the SEO sphere (there's just different "ranking factors" these days which are simply different types of links)... and why would achieving #1 ranking each and every month mean I "stand no chance in the SERP"... that just sounds ridiculous from my point of view as if the hard work has been done to get to #1 then I'm sure maintenance would be just as hard/easy as getting to the top was... just keep at it!! and you mentioned "give a little time what you are ready to offer" (i'm not sure what you mean as I didn't mention a specific time frame that I expect things to happen, I merely used an example to explain what I meant so people understand).

        Nobody is trying to give you a "sales pitch".

        It's just too often people that want an "Affordable Managed SEO Company" demanding "quality work" often have low-ball budgets and unrealistic expectations.

        Without knowing what you are willing to spend and what you are trying to do, there is no way to know whether or not what you are trying to accomplish is even possible.

    The challenge is really the shifting the initial keyword that will convert into sales and consequently increase your revenue that will contribute to the proceeding month budget.

    If you have a budget then certainly there are service providers who will shift the position of the initial keyword, thorough homework will be needed of course. Keyword + landing page + customer journey + order to basket + sales to basket will have to be assessed.

    Have you done PPC? I ask since PPC can quickly fix the above giving you a strong indication of what you can expect from a 1st page ranking of the main keyword, even more so in the top 3.

    That data gives you the basis of the SEO strategy and how you can justify (to yourself at the least) the initial bill that an SEO company will charge.

    I shifted a brand keyword to the position of #2 in Google and referred the traffic to site that was #1 (the brand itself) the referral revenue justified the need to spend more resources on the site and consequently grew from 5 pages to over 50 pages and page one listing for 10 top keywords. The referral revenue is over £120,000 a month (did not pocket anything as is the client)

    A decent SEO services provider should be realistic in what can or can not be achieved in the short, medium and long-term. I personally feel more comfortable talking ROI with a client and not just the shift in the numbers and service providers should talk in this manner.

    My suggestion is to pay a (maybe not 'the') 'managed' service provider a small fee for an analysis of competitors in your niche and their link profiles. This will give a strong indication of what degree or easiness or difficulty you will have to rank a keyword.

    Hope that helps?

      if you read my initial post it clearly outlines what needs to be accomplished... i couldn't explain it any simpler than that... if you need any information just ask... although as i explained i don't want to talk about budget until i find someone i'm comfortable with that can deliver the service that i'm looking for... i trust that you can wrap your head around that

      i did some research on them and it seams that they have not kept up to speed with the algorithm changes and are no longer a company worth using for such tasks

      and judging by these posts...

      no-one has a decent SEO company that they are currently using with great success?

        To put it straight you are being a nit. He asked a simple question because quality is often determined by what the client can afford and not afford. You sound like you are a know it all that would be a pain in the neck to work with and so you have turned off probably most of the better SEOs here (I would not touch you with a ten foot pole). What good is it for people to suggest options to you you can't even afford? THINK!

        In case you hadn't thought about it the better SEOs that can manage with quality don't come jumping because you have a job you want to be affordable. they are determining whether they want to work with you because they are not starving. Two way street

        I trust you can wrap your head around that. (but I think theres a good chance my trust will be in vain).

        the added silliness of your response is that it was YOU that first raised the issue of price when you wrote looking for an AFFORDABLE service. Since what is affordable to one person is not affordable to another the question is not only acceptable it is directly called for by your threads title.

        no-one has a decent SEO company that they are currently using with great success?
        Again...A decent SEO reading how you handled a simple question wouldn't want to work with you (and the fact that you are blaming previous SEO services for your ranking while trying to drop anchor text link spam in your sig would be another reason no to - nofollow btw)

    I have to agree with the guys asking about the OP budget.

    Without knowing the budget it's impossible for an SEO provider to know If you understand how competitive the keyword competition is on Google SERPs. You wouldn't believe the amount of people wanting to rank for tough comp. keywords & fiverr budgets.

    Your in the health niche which is usually very competitive in the SERPs because everyone & their brother knows there's a lot of money in health related sales.

    Ballpark your budget & example keyword/s (not exact keywords). So far all I'm reading is you want a suitable SEO. If you want help, provide info. that matters.

    Ignore the 3rd world hacks dropping one liner links.

    This sounds like the SEO version of The Hunger Games. Why don't we just break it down by keyword, and have several companies all working on the same page, at the same time.

    7x is far superior to 1.

    Or we could throw the top 2 companies in a Pit, and have them fight to the death.

      The only SEO companies fighting for this client would be inferior to everyone.

      Think 7 VPS running senukeXcr as the link building.

    I used to offer SEO services and like Mike I wouldn't have touched you as a client with a bargepole, your understanding is too low and your expectations are too high.

    I used to do SEO like you describe in the early 2000's, doesn't work that way anymore. You don't understand SEO today, it's not a simple case of an SEO expert works on one URL and few month later the page is ranking for competitive high traffic SERPs.

    SEO for competitive SERPs (the ones with high traffic) can take years of effort. An SEO could work their arse off for three months doing everything right and traffic doesn't move, months later the earlier SEO work starts to pay off, but a client like you will have already concluded the SEO failed and moved on.

    Go learn about aged backlinks and Google trust/authority and you might come back with more reasonable expectations.

    Take your unrealistic time frame off the table and the service you want is a high value one: $5,000 a month plus (it's a lot of work) and if your SEO knows what they are doing wouldn't expect ROI in the first 6 months (assuming your niche is capable of making lots of money) unless you already own a site with Google trust/authority in a good money niche.
