The price companies pay for SEO services could depend on the consultant's business model and geographic location. Honest consultants will focus on return on investment, not guarantee results, and
should charge more than $300 monthly for services. That's according to Matt McGee, who lays out five points to help small and medium-sized businesses put costs for SEO services in perspective.
McGee aims to debunk the idea that SEO services "shouldn't cost much more than your satellite/cable TV bill." He wants companies to have a realistic view of the work and the time it takes for each project. To help company execs get organized and make the correct choice, he provides a check list to follow when considering hiring someone for services.
