Criteria for selecting high quality SEO & marketing services

Contemporary SEO considerations when hiring in South Africa
While most SEO companies do a good job in certain aspects of SEO, very few companies and consultants (locally as well as globally) offer a combination of technical, analytical, creative, and "safe" skills and expertise.
In fact, hiring the wrong SEO and Internet marketing company can actively harm the performance of your business website or blog. Read these articles that talk about the latest Panda and Penguin algorithm updates and the effects they've had on unfortunate businesses using poor quality SEO:

Thought about how you found this article yet?
But I digress. Let's get back to the causes of unrealistic SEO expectations...
Webspam and "cheap" SEO offers
Most of these expectations are driven by the pervasiveness of "webspam" services that dishonestly offer any combination of the following:
- 1st place guarantees
- immediate results
- very cheap
- massive number of high quality backlinks
... and so on.
With Google's recent Penguin algorithm update, the crackdown on businesses using these services has begun, and many have disappeared overnight.
High quality SEO and Internet marketing
The fact of the matter is this:
- high quality SEO takes times
- high quality SEO relies on excellent content
- excellent content relies on deep and profound understanding of the business and its target audience
- excellent content also requires creativity
- excellent content also requires excellent writing ability and web writing and blogging experience
- On-site SEO requires technical expertise - gzipping, caching, aggregation, canonical URLs, CMS, HTML, PHP, and so on
- Off-site SEO requires social media experience and recognition and authority
- Globally competitive SEO requires "finger on the pulse" experience of the latest SEO and marketing developments
All of the above does not come cheap. The most efficient way for business to improve and manage their SEO and Internet marketing is to find a world class SEO consultant and build a strong, long lasting working relationship with them.
There's only one SEO & Internet marketing option for South African business...
