Chicago SEO companies are holding your links hostage and if they get rid of them you may not even know it! Make sure you know what your SEO company or SEO specialist is doing. If they are getting backlinks for you, make sure you have a list of them or check the status of your backlinks by typing link:http://www.yoursitesnamehere.com into the Google search bar. You can also use the previous technique to check your competitors backlinks and to see what they are up to. People think they are being sneaky with all of their SEO techniques, but in reality it’s all out there for everyone to see. I recently interviewed with a company who outsources their SEO and personally I think that is the worst way to do it in regards to backlinks among other SEO practices.
One of the best ways to get into the SEO game is to start putting up some sites, better yet start a web development company within or along with your own company! It only makes sense. I mean, how hard is it to optimize your own site? It’s not that hard unless you are just too lazy to do it yourself! Everything you need to know is available all over the internet. Take a little time and learn.
