    Is there an alternative of looking for an SEO company instead of Google search?
    I’ve been using a SEO company for the past year for promoting our 3 sites. Currently the number of visitors a month is 1000, 800 and 400 respectively (the last being a co.uk unlike the other .com and .net). The increase over the last six months has been very slight.

    These sites focus on lead generation, and we are hardly generating any enquiries. I’ve done everything from writing 100 articles to blogs. Can you guide me in selecting a good SEO to fit our requirement?

    Thanks!

    Yes, you can start with your local geographic area. Check with local business networks, business associations and business directories (printed and online) to see if there are any SEO providers in your area. If you can't find an SEO specialist, try contacting your local web design firms and ask about the SEO services they provide.

    Next you could try freelance and forum sites. You could post an ad for your requirements in our Member Ads & Marketplace section. We have some SEO people who are regular visitors here and you should get some helpful responses. You can also find additional forums and trading sites listed in our Useful Online Business Resources thread.

    If you decide to proceed with hiring an SEO firm, the first step is to set clear objectives for your SEO campaign. Make those objectives as specific as possible, in terms of the numbers and quality of results that you want to achieve. You should find this thread on how to hire a PR firm helpful - the selection process for a SEO will be broadly the same as those for a PR firm.

    One alternative to hiring an SEO company, is to do the SEO yourself. It really doesn't take that long to learn the basics of SEO and begin to see improvements in your traffic, when you put those basics into practice. Please let us know if this is something you would consider doing and we will provide you with some tips, suggestions and resources to get you started.

    I understand if you wish to keep the details of your site confidential. However, we will be able to provide you with more specific tips and suggestions, if you can tell us a little about it, such as it's niche or even the website address.

    Good luck with it and please do post back to let us know your thoughts.

    you can just do it on your own as it might be safe.

    Hey,
    Some companies do not do SEO in good way but It is not right to all. You can hire any company which used white SEO techniques Please avoid black hat SEO otherwise your site can be penalized and banned permanently so be careful and mind many points before hiring any company or any independent contractor.

    It is possible that you can start with your current location and get more online consulting.
    It is better for you if you do SEO by yourselves with some SEO software or SEO tool.
