5 Things to Consider Before Hiring A SEO Company for Your Business

SEO Company for Your Business

Are you looking to hire a professional SEO company? If yes, you have to look into a few things before hiring one. Instead of just looking at the cost of the package, you have to look at a few others factors as well before making a decision about hiring the SEO company.

We will share with you a few tips which would help you in hiring the right kind of search engine optimisation company.

1. History of the company:

The search engine algorithms are always changing. Instead of just sticking to a new company because it is more affordable, you have to go for a company which is established and experienced. This would ensure that even if the algorithms of the search engine change, the company would be able to rank your website since they have tackled the changes in the search engine algorithm in the past. That is why, instead of going for a completely new company, you have to go for experienced one.

2. Previously ranked projects:

Before hiring a search engine optimisation company, you have to look at their previous projects. You have to look at the rankings which they have achieved for their previous customers. Once you are able to look into them, you would realize what is the company capable of.

3. Kind of customer support:

During the course of your search engine optimisation campaign, there would be plenty of times when you would need the help of the company. At such times, you would be contacting the customer support. That is why you have to also look at the level of support which is provided by the company. If the level of support is quick and helpful, you can be sure that in the future as well whenever you are contacting the support you would be able to get your queries resolved.

4. Type of back links:

Instead of just looking at the number of backlinks which they would make, you have to look at the type of backlinks. Once you look at the type of backlinks, you would understand whether they are providing you with quality backlinks or whether they are just providing you with a high quantity of backlinks. When you look at the strategy, you would be able to understand whether it is a good strategy or not. You have to ideally always opt for backlinks which are of high quality.

5. Timeframe:

Even though SEO campaigns can easily take 5 to 6 months to rank the website (but if the company is quoting you somewhere around 1 year to 18 months) then you should avoid that company. As the timeframe of the SEO plans increases, so would the budget. That is why you need a company which is able to rank you in the medium timeframe. You have to discuss the timeframe with the company in advance so that you can be sure that they would be able to rank to according to the deadlines which you have.

So, when you are hiring an SEO company for ranking your website, these are the 5 things which you should always keep in mind.

10 Reasons Teachers Should Be Proud Of Their Job

This is how to respond to that question "Why Would You Want to Be a Teacher?"

Any Education major could tell you that we are faced with degrading comments on a daily basis, comments such as “Wow I’m jealous your classes must be so easy,” “So you’re basically going to be a babysitter?” “But you’re so smart..,” and the typical “so you’re okay with being poor?”

Although the people making these arrogant comments mean absolutely no harm, It doesn’t make the comments any less annoying or just plain rude. I’m tired of defending my career choice, so instead of being on the defensive I’ll share all of the amazing reasons why I want to be a teacher.

  1. I can think of few other positions that allow you the opportunity to make a difference in the world on such a daily basis.
  2. Children are the future, as simple as that. Teachers can positively affect the future by inspiring children and fostering their intelligence and individual traits.
  3. I enjoy being with kids; I’m good at working with kids, and I learn a lot from kids.
  4. Being surrounded by children all day will grant me the gift of never taking myself too seriously, and will allow me to forever be a kid at heart!
  5. Multiple teachers have told me that it is awe-inspiring to witness a student’s “light-bulb moments”, the moments when they finally understand a lesson or concept.
  6. There will never be a dull moment, and every day will bring its own triumphs and failures.
  7. The humor: I work at a school Aftercare and everyday I leave with multiple stories of the hilarious things that happened that day.
  8. When I have my own family one day, I will be able to have a job and also have time with my kids.
  9. Being a teacher will allow me to further develop my virtues, such as patience and kindness.
  10. Teachers give back to the community on a daily basis.

Finally, in order to address the predictable “but you will be so poor” comment, I’ll borrow a line from the teacher Taylor Mali who, in answer to the question “what do you make?” responded, “I make a difference. What do you make?”

10 things no one tells you about taking an Online class

Online or on campus, school is still school.


While school has been out for most people, it isn't for me. This summer I decided to take a couple of classes. Both of which involved class online. My first class was a hybrid class, meaning it was half in person and half online, and my second class is entirely online. I expected class online to be like the busy practice work we get from the access codes in our textbooks, and boy was a wrong.

So let me tell you what no one tell you about taking an online class.

1. You constantly have to check in with your professor and classmates.

While you don't see them in person, you are constantly writing and replying to discussion board posts.

2. It's so much harder to focus on the material.

Trying to focus on your laptop, or tablet screen without checking your social media or going online shopping, is almost impossible. The temptation to switch open another tab and go off topic is crazy.

3. There's no slowing down, everything has a set deadline.

Typically, in an traditional in-person class, if the class isn't understanding something the professor can move deadlines for assignments, but online everything is set in stone.

4. You need great time management skills.

Don't get me wrong, I have pretty great time management skills between all my classes and working full-time, but online classes come with a lot more work, considering you aren't constricted by classroom time, traffic, weather and campus problems.

5. There's so much more class work.

On top of having to reading 20 chapters, you have questions in every section of every chapter that you need to answer, end of chapter questions, videos that you need to watch, homework assignments, vocabulary, test/quizzes/exams, and papers. Mind you the tests/quizzes/exam and papers are after every single chapter. I don't know about you but in my classes that actually meet in person, I have never had to answer any questions at the end of each section or chapter, and my tests/quizzes/exams where grouped into multiple chapters, not after every single chapter.

6. You still need to take notes.

Some assignments don't allow you to stop and look for the answer and you can't open another tab and Google the answer and scroll forever because you're being timed on the assignment. Writing notes down will help you remember the information.

7. If you learn hands on, you're going to have a harder time.

If you're a hands on learner, an online class might not be for you. There's nothing hands on about sitting in front of a computer screen.

8. You still have to study.

Like I said before, when you're doing an assignment and you can't stop and you're being timed, it helps to have studied the information before hand.

9. Technology can be a major problem.

Websites crash and run super slow sometimes and there's nothing that we can do about it. You just have to work through it and be patient. So don't do your work last minute, you never know when the website will be down!!

10. You are 100% responsible for everything.

While yes you are responsible for most of your traditional classes, you still have the professor to lecture and teach, but online you're teaching yourself everything.
