How are SEO rates determined?

SEO rates are based on a variety of factors. Please see the pricing chart below for details on WebFX SEO rates.

The SEO rates established by WebFX are based on a formula that considers the number of keyphrases your site will be optimized for and the number of 1st page Google results. The SEO rates then differ based on additional services included, from link building to consulting.

SEO rates published online? Why?

If you’re researching SEO rates, you’ve probably found most companies require you to call before they provide SEO rates. While we can’t defend their position to not publish SEO rates online, we can explain why we do.

WebFX believes clients should know what SEO rates include. Our clients have the right to know exactly what they are paying for. We stand behind our work and are proud to publish our SEO rates online.

Anyone can call themselves SEO experts and establish whatever SEO rates they wish. Often, these companies have little actual SEO experience. WebFX knows what it takes to get your site ranked well on search engines. And we’re willing to break these services down and publish them online, so you can make an informed decision.

After years of experience in the field, WebFX has perfected the SEO process, including how we establish SEO rates. We know what works best and what doesn’t. We work constantly to stay on top of the ever evolving search engines. We can give accurate SEO rates because we know the best strategy behind the most successful SEO campaigns. We don’t waste your time or money on test strategies. And that’s why our SEO rates are so competitive.

Why do SEO rates differ from firm to firm?

Unfortunately for clients, there is no industry standard for SEO rates. Any company can claim they “do Search Engine Optimization” and establish whatever SEO rates they wish. The burden is left to the consumer to determine fair SEO rates.

Also, a successful SEO campaign requires a complicated formula of different specific strategies, from linkbuilding to unique landing pages. Moreover, the campaign and strategies must be constantly refined to meet the search engines’ updates. This makes defining SEO rates more difficult than providing pricing for services that do not vary in resources. Many firms have trouble with SEO rates for this exact reason.

WebFX is an SEO leader because of our extensive experience in the field…over 35 years combined! We have some of the most talented internet marketers in the industry. Thanks to our long history and expert SEO team, we’ve been able to define SEO rates using a systematic approach. We know what it takes for a campaign to be successful. That’s why we’re the experts.
