    Hello,
    I was hoping someone can give me an advice. I have hired an "SEO expert" online to help me to tune up my online shop and seo so I can be found in google search. Got a link from my hosting company directory . I paid $800 for "initial analysis and set up" and received in return what looks like a program-generated list of errors on my website that need to be fixed : broken links, missing meta description and so on. And thats it. I am not at all familiar with how to do any of that and am really struggling to figure it out. And when I asked for help from this expert I just got one vogue reply to read up on everything, this is no help at all. I guess my question is what should be included in this seo analysis? I am not asking to re-write my entire shop, I can do the work myself but I need someone to show me how. It just sounds like a lot of money for something that was computer generated. am I right? or does it actually cost that much? any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not sure how detailed the report is but in any case, that does sound like a lot of money for something that IS computer generated. For example, you can check some on-site SEO data on our site for free (https://www.pointvisible.com/on-page-seo-report/). Also, we're optimizing the sites for around $120 per page or per keyword. So, $800 seems kinda a lot for something that just tells you what needs to be fixed.

    Keyword research is important, but can be done for free with the AdWords and BingAds tool. In that case, it seems to be a gimmick for SEOs, preying on people who don't know.

    First, the complete analysis of website.
    Points where website needs improvement.
    Suggest developers to follow the points related to code.
    Start off page activities for website like create social media profiles, social bookmarks, Forum profiles and post your website or blog articles to the platforms.

    The really basic and initial SEO services are (in this order):
    1. a keyword research
    2. competition research (this is based on your keyword research)
    3. technical seo audit of your website
    4. onpage/offpage seo audit of your website (this is partly based on your keyword research)
    Anything else (like Onpage- Offpage Optimization) is one step further.
    Depending on your site it can cost $800 and way more, but what you described (automatic report) sounds a bit fishy to me.

    Since you have an online shopping site, that should also include Facebook marketing too.

    Next time make sure your online campaign is 50% Seo and 50% Social Media Campaign.

    In initial SEO service there should be overall site audit like onpage seo, keyword research and offpage optimization. I just don't know how a company usually charge for it a month. All I know is SEO is usually not cheap and it takes a lot of hard work for you to get the result.




















    , keyword research

    Ask him to return your money back. Site audit involves finding all issue associated with a website that is stopping the website from ranking well in the search engine or failing to target right people.
    His work is not even worth 10$.

    Well, $800 for just an analysis report is indeed too much. You should not be paying such amount for a report that can be easily generated using websites such as site-analyzer.com. Nonetheless, initial SEO service should cover on-page SEO, keyword research, competitor analysis, link building strategy, social media profiles setup, etc. Please let me know if you need quality SEO help to get everything organized. Cheers!
