Paying an SEO Company in Fear of Losing Search Rankings

Sep 10, 2007 • 8:11 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under SEM / SEO Companies

An interesting Cre8asite Forums thread sprung up over the weekend. Miriam (aka SEOigloo), a respected Cre8asite member, has a client where he has been provided web development work over the past several years. Miriam never provided any SEO services for her client, just standard web development services.

Miriam learned that her client was using, whom she felt, was a shady SEO company. The SEO company provided services that are typically found of SEO companies that fall under the "shady" practices. Let's assume this SEO company is a shady SEO company and doesn't offer their clients any SEO value - I am not saying that, let's just assume that for the case of this article.

Miriam presented her concerns to her client, explaining that this SEO company is not providing them any value in increasing their search rankings. Miriam's client was shocked by what she learned and now understands the issues with her SEO company but she is not ready to drop her SEO company. Miriam's client is concerned that if she stops paying her SEO company, her rankings may drop.

So Miriam decided to post a thread at Cre8asite Forums to get advice on what her client should do in this situation. Should the client drop this SEO company or should the client continue with the SEO company?

So far, the responses are saying Miriam's client should drop the SEO company. But put yourself in this client's seat - it is a tough decision indeed.
