- What to expect.
- What not to expect.

Some of what we heard is that this is a slimy area of technology - a lot of less-than-honest people. Judy told us, "We end up coming in after some other promises by SEO companies have gone unfulfilled."
She had more advice:
Be sure you select a company you can trust because they'll need access to your entire website, not just the content.
They SHOULD ask you to be involved in the keyword selection process. If not, you are with the wrong company. The process can take months, but this is what will determine the success of this effort.
What types of reporting does the company offer? You want not only the technological reporting, but the interpretation and recommendations. This is an ongoing process and it's effects should be reviewed a few times a year to adjust the efforts.
Do not go with the companies that solicit via email or cold call you on the phone. Ask other companies, do you own research to find the SEO partner that will increase your success.
Judy had a lot of great advice. If you are considering an SEO company, this show is worth your listening time. You will gain a lot of knowledge as you begin the interviewing process.
