How Much Should You Pay for SEO?



//www.lockedownseo.com/ How much should you pay for SEO? Most businesses that generate between six and seven figures of annual revenue should pay between $1500 and $10000 per month for SEO. For larger companies that are generating millions to hundreds of millions per year in annual revenue, that figure will jump to between $10000 and $50000 per month.

Under no circumstances should you ever trust one of the companies that says they will do SEO of $200 to $500 amonth. Why not?

Simply put, that budget will not allow anyone to do good SEO work for any company that generates a profit.

What are the expenses for SEO consultants and agencies?

Agencies will have payroll, and other overhead. Everyone from the solo consultant to a 500 person agency will have to pay for software, content creation, link outreach, design, UX, and development.

Smaller businesses that have not hired a SEO consultant before may not realize that SEO is more than keyword stuffing. There are many factors that go into SEO, and you have to get all of them right.

You must have best-in-class content and a robust back link profile if you want to rank in any competitive vertical. Content means either time and talent, or hiring a copywriter, which is not cheap.

Without stellar content, you won’t be able to earn back links, and without links, you won’t be able to rank. Link outreach is one part of the puzzle. Some links (like memberships and associations) you’ll have to pay for. You want both the link and the traffic from the linking site.

Here’s why race-to-the-bottom SEO companies can’t build quality links: they can’t pay for decent content, and their links come from fake blogs. Google hates content farms that exist for the sole purpose of link manipulation. The $300 a month SEOs can only get links from fake blogs and private blog networks (PBNs). Both of these violate Google’s Quality Guidelines, and can leave your SEO in worse shape than before if you get discovered.

Also, the user experience of your website — the design, mobile-friendliness, site speed, and functionality — also play a part in SEO. If your site is crap, and it doesn’t make your customers happy, it won’t make Google happy.

Don’t hire anyone for less than $1000 a month for SEO. They simply won’t have the resources to do what they need to do. Save your money, invest in a professional SEO consultant or agency, or don’t spend the money at all.

Most of our clients are generating between $500k and $20M annually, and we charge between $1500 and $2500 a month for our services.
