Why paying for SEO services is not worth it

Often I receive hundreds of emails asking if I was interested to hire an SEO expert or service provider to improve my weary engine rankings for the targeted keywords. Every single time my answer would be the same – No!

SEO activities ( on-page or off-page SEO ) are self doable with little training. The major issues with outsourcing these activities are

1. Often SEO services are overpriced.
2. On discontinuing efforts rankings drop back
3. Bad quality & un ethical SEO can do harm to your website.

You could refer to my SEO tutorials on the Orangecopper Blog to learn more about self learning on-page and off page SEO.

Take home: this short article is to want you from falling into marketing emails and similar traps for spending your hard earned money for work that you can manage your self.
