Two days ago, I ran a poll asking if SEO companies implement SEO changes or just recommend changes to be implemented. Meaning, does your SEO company normally start with coding changes and upload files to the web server.
I now have the poll results, which shows the majority of SEO companies do both. They will make coding changes and/or offer recommendations, based on what their client wants them to do.
Here is the break down of 170+ responses to the question, Do You Implement SEO Recommendations or Just Make Recommendations?
:: Both, Implement When Asked & Offer Recommendations When Asked said 121 respondents or 70% :: Offer Recommendations Only said 41 respondents or 24% :: Implement Changes on Site Only said 10 respondents or 6%
The numbers seem logical to me. I wonder why 6% would only conduct SEO services if they can make the changes themselves on the site. I assume it gives them more control and thus makes them more secure in getting the changes they need done, so they can see results?
