A week ago, we polled our audience asking Are You Still Offering SEO Services Paid By Performance? For example, are you willing to exchange direct payment in exchange for payment on the basis of rankings, or traffic or on revenue earned.
The majority of respondents said they never will or have taken this type of payment in exchange for SEO services.
Here is a breakdown of the seventy-five or so responses to the question "Do You Offer Pay For Performance SEO Packages?" :: Never said 41 respondents or 55% :: Very Rarely said 13 respondents or 18% :: Sometimes, Only Great Ideas said 10 respondents or 14% :: Very Often, But Depends said 5 respondents or 7% :: Only Do Pay For Performance said 3 respondents or 4% :: Other answer said 2 respondents or 3%
I wish we would of had more responses, I guess I should have pushed this poll more. But I do think these numbers make sense and likely represent the industry as a whole.
