    Now that google's analytics report does not show the search engine ranking according to keywords and phrases, how can one monitor the progress of the work done by a SEO expert? How can I make sure that my webisite is climbing up on google search results due to the work done by my SEO expert?

    If you have to ask that question you have hired the wrong expert.

    Although her(?) post is a bit short, anglenasmith has a point. You shouldn't have to monitor an SEO provider's work. They should be sending you reports at least once a month to show you the progress of your website. You should be notified where your website was at the beginning of the reporting period, and where it is at the end. They should be able to give you a report on the links they are sending to your website, including where they are coming from, and answer any questions you may have about them. To answer your last question, there should be no doubt about whether or not the increase, if any, is due to the work of the SEO provider. Why would there be? If your SEO provider is doing their job properly, your website's rankings will rise. That's what you hired them for.

    Metric To Evaluate SEO Expert's Work

    Hi,

    I concur with the opinion of joeroxx: after paying them for their services, it is the job of the expert to provide you with periodic feedback on how your site is doing on the search front. I wish there were some metric that would help a site admin/owner to see how well their efforts have performed, automatically, specifically for such cases.

    there's a great tool called market samurai that allows you to run scans on your target key terms and see how your website moves up or down the ranks.

    If you want to monitor seo expert work. Just told me to send you all work report in excel format. I mean on which directories he submit your website. also details of forums and blog posting by excel sheet. You can just visit those url and monitor the work. I seem this is best way to monitor work
