Wondering why you can't find any SEO company? The following article below examines the reasons why you may not be an ideal SEO client and the reasons for that. I wrote this article based on some experience I have recently with some people that I have turned down but still insist on hiring me. How do I tell me I am not interested? This is a letter addressed to the unwanted SEO client. For more forum discussion on this see SEroundtable Forums.

Dear Unwanted SEO Client,

As I see it, you have two options. One you can run yelling and kicking to the next SEO company complaining that the last one didn't like your website and you need them to sign you up at a low low rate because you don't have an SEO budget or you think you don't need one. Can you survive for a time on free SEO Handouts? Eventually you may realize this probably isn't the best option.

You will have to create and find value in this SEO work or else it will pass your by and any hopes of ranking highly in the search engines.

In the last couple weeks I have been petitioned by a couple of "psuedo SEO clients" that insist on calling me for information on what to do with their website. Now I am a nice guy and I always give new clients a free 30 minutes of my time. Sometimes more if I know they need it. I have to pay the bills like everyone else and there becomes a point when "free advice" needs to become "paid advice". If you don't want to pay for "paid advice" then move on. So the client moves on...
