Whenever Google comes up with algo updates, there is a huge speculation in the SEO community and a huge list of Do’s and Don’t come out.
Strategising and Implementing SEO can be highly daunting for a lot of businesses. Especially when you do not have the team or the skillset in place. If you are a hands on business owner or a marketing manager in a company, getting good organic visitor growth on your website must be at the top of your charts. Therefore SEO becomes one of the most crucial tools in organic lead generation. Outsourcing your SEO activities to a specialized agency seems to be the best option, as you do not need to recruit and manage an SEO specialist/SEO team in-house.
All of us humans, are born with capabilities which are unique to each one of us. It is only when we identify our capabilities that we start growing.

Did you ever have this thought? If yes, don’t worry, you are not the only one. A lot of new business owners/website owners think that if we do everything correct according to the book, results are bound to come in 3 months. And if not, then my SEO is not working properly.

One of the biggest challenges for any new company is to “get the word out”. Unless people know that you exist and that you are great at what you do, it is very difficult for a company to get customers and survive. How are we ensuring that we are building relationship with our audience? Are we getting the word out properly? Or are we pushing it too far?
