To Pay or Not to Pay for Professional SEO Services
by Matthias V. Pupillo

All websites need to be professionally search engine optimized (SEO). It is one of the most overlooked services even though it is one of the most needed and critical to a successful website. Without professional search engine optimization a website can not receive free search engine traffic. Another reason a web designer must select a professional seo company is because of the nature of search, an amateur can not keep up with all of the changes. Finally, the cost of professional search engine optimization is much less over the long run than marketing a website. All web site owners need to hire a professional search engine optimizer.

The stats of how many visitors come to most websites from the search engines varies from 50 – 90% depending on whom you ask. Although people may argue how many visitors come from search, the fact remains that no website can survive without that free traffic. A website owner really needs to focus on making their site spider-able by search engines or face the daunting task of attracting visitors to their site. A company that offers professional search services is a must find for anyone running a website.

Search engine optimization is a lot like the Olympics. In the beginning, amateurs had a pretty good shot at winning a medal. As in the Olympics, those days are long gone. In the beginning of search almost all websites were search engine optimized. There where only so many ways to build a website. Today there are limitless combinations of technologies to build a website. Some are very friendly for search engines. Others, like flash and frames, are so far from friendly that they down right just don’t get along. There is almost no way for a web designer to allow time to follow what technologies are "search" friendly. The industry changes every day. That is why a website owner or webmaster must hire a search engine optimization company to achieve any type of real results.

One of the main reasons that companies do not hire a search engine optimization company is because they say that the cost is too high. That notion is dead wrong as well as a very costly mistake. Without professional search engine optimization a website ca not receive free search traffic. The facts are that simple. If a web designer chooses not to optimize their site than they have to pay that much more in the cost of marketing it. It is true that marketing may be cheaper in the short term, but any business that has a primary goal to be on internet for the short term has more problems than just web design issues. The cost of search engine optimization has to be taken into account over the long run of a website.

Advice is only good if you take it. In the world of the Internet there are some pretty big fish in the water. It is impossible for a smaller company to survive on the net if they do not get noticed. Even a small company can appear large and in charge because they rank higher in the search engine results page than their larger competition. Results like that can only happen if a website owner or company makes the investment into a professional search engine optimization company.
