Find out About SEO Costs & Pricing
Every SEO project is individually assessed based on the following factors:
- Number of targeted keywords
- Competitiveness of targeted keywords
- Current keyword rankings
- Current backlinks & site authority
- Clients goals/timeline/expectations
After working with you to determine a potential list of targeted keywords, Paul then provides a budgeted range. Monthly SEO campaigns start as low as $1,500/month and go up by increments of $500, with current clients ranging from $1,500/month all the way up to $15,000/month. Paul will always educate potential clients on what to expect and provide a couple of different pricing options for consideration (think aggressive vs starter vs moderate budgets).
For example, a local business or niche-targeted website may be given the range of $1,500– $2,500/month, while a business with several targeted cities or products/services may be given a range of $3,000 – $5,000/month. National brands and larger companies may be spending much more then that. Initial budget ranges all goes back to the five determining factors mentioned above.
There are no fixed term contracts with the monthly SEO/link building services and the service cycle runs from the 1st to the 1st. Many clients start with a smaller budget that grows substantially over time as the relationship grows and they start to see impressive SEO results.
The overall budget determines how many links are built each month along with how many hours are spent on research, link prospecting, competitive backlink analysis and other crucial initiatives to deliver successful SEO results.
With a higher budget, a higher quantity and quality of links can be targeted and built each month, thereby driving faster rankings for competitive keywords. More competitive keywords require larger budgets, as do projects with a higher amount of targeted keywords.
