Why Does Great SEO Cost More? [infographic]

Why Does Great SEO Cost More? [infographic] | Real SEO | Scoop.it

All SEO is not equal. Cheap SEO does cheap things and the results will show it. Good SEO does better things and gets good results.

"If you find a company you are about to hire has 3 or more domain properties, you have to ask yourself, why do they need 3 or more domains? Branding your company across multiple 3rd party platforms is an acceptable practice, for example, a Facebook page, Twitter account, third party blog platforms. But buying up multiple domain names with nothing but keywords. This is not an acceptable practice in web world. This is SPAM!"
