    I have always been the type that likes to do my own work that is for my websites. lately though I am very busy and have thought about what I can do to free up some time.

    SEO can be time consuming, especially if you are not an SEO professional so I have been toying with the idea of finding an SEO service to do some SEO work for a few of my websites. I have never done this so I am curious as to what kind of experiences some other people who have done this have had.

    Have you used paid SEO services or do you have any good information on these?

    All input and opinions are welcomed. ;)

    No I didn't use. Because I am myself an experienced digital marketing expert and provided services to startups, average and well reputed online brands.

    Sometimes, I think that if I was not SEO and I had to hire someone to optimize my online brand, what did I do? :) I seriously don't know what did I do. :)

    Then do you sell those services to other people now? If you do then you should make a post here in marketplace because many of us are new and do not know how to all all the seo things our self.

    Did you buy them from a freelancer or an SEO services website?

    I have never bought seo services but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't. If I really wanted a website of mine to rank well but I couldn't do it myself or if I didn't have the time then I would have no problem paying someone else to do it as long as I knew they knew what they were doing.

    Lately I have been thinking about buying some SEO services just to see what kind of results I can get from them. I am a little unsure about using SEO services from a source that I am not familiar with so I have been looking around and trying to find some good reliable information.

    If I find a good service then I will make sure to let the other members know about it and the results that I get from it's use.

    What's included in SEO service packages ranges from one seller to another so it's impossible to let you know what's included.

    Usually it includes some kind of link building and some kind of SEO audit of your website or blog but again, it does differ from one seller to another.

    I have been thinking about buying SEO services or at least an SEO analysis just to see what areas can be improved for a blog of mine. I have just been reading on it and some people actually have had their website damaged from SEO services that did things wrong.

    That has me worried because I have worked hard to get where it is right now.

    I keep getting emails from people trying to sell me seo services but I never replied back to check on them. I like to do my own seo so that I can learn from doing it for myself. I know that professionals will get better results faster but then I would need to rely on them all the time. If I do it myself and learn then I will always be able to take care of it myself without relying on other people.

    That's a risk you take when you put the future or your website into the hands of others.

    However, if you go with a company or person that has a good reputation then you will probably be fine. It's the cheap SEO services that often do a lot of bad SEO techniques just to get results that will usually harm your website in the long run.

    I know what you mean, I also like to do my own SEO work for many different reasons. These days though I have given it some thought (paying for SEO services) because I am always short on time to do SEO. ;)

    That is one reason why I think about paying for the services. I also do not know too much about all the seo techniques that a professional will know.

    If there is something in particular that you want to know then you can always ask about it here or search Google, Bing or one of the other search engines and you will probably find what you are wanting to know. ;)

    I have not bought SEO services but I have been thinking a little about buying them just to get my blog off and going to the top of the rankings faster.

    That can be a good idea but just make sure that you are getting the services from a trusted source. Some of the SEO services that can be found cheap will use one type of black hat SEO or something that might get you quick results for now but then later will hurt your site.

    I am not saying that you shouldn't do it but just use caution. ;)

    Well that is a little problem. I do not know how to tell if the seo service is from a trusted source or not. I might just try to see what I can learn and hope I do not mess anything up for my blog.

    It's sometimes hard to tell which SEO service provider is trusted or not. You have to do some research on them and see what you can find out. You can try to look for good informative reviews on their services but those are sometimes not unbiased.

    It's always a good idea to learn things like SEO yourself. That way you will know what you did and did not do. If you are not sure about something then you can always ask your questions here and I am sure that some of our members will be happy to help. ;)

    I keep getting a lot of emails through the contact form on my blog for SEO services. They are saying things about how there is room for improvement or that they can get me onto the first page of Google.

    It seems like a scam type of thing but I really don't know if they are or not.
