    Hi there,

    Do SEO companies allow you to work with them? Or do they prefer to do their thing, charge you, and thats it?!

    Reason I ask... is I want to learn, and am happy to pay for help of course.

    I'm looking for someone who can analyse my site, tell me where I'm going wrong, tell me what to do, and so on.

    Or am I being unrealistic!?

    I learnt SEO from Udemy courses. Although the list prices of the courses are high but the platform has sales all the time and the price for most of the courses becomes US$ 9.9

    SEO companies must always work with you and this is to improve the goal of the project in which in every process would be connected with the client's updates from time to time.

    Unfortunately, SEO isn't a rocket science. Nobody can say where you're doing wrong or predict results. There are a few technical things and several simple facts.

    SEO is a part of your marketing. SEO rely on your marketing decisions. How strong your marketing? The SEO performance of your site depends on an answer to this question.

    The approach is the most important thing when you hire SEO specialist or agency.
    SEO doesn't mean to use any SEO tool, to get red flags and to fix "issues". SEO needs systematic approach that is based on marketing, tech knowledge and experience. Also, there are three levels of SEO which an agency can propose. For business site it'd be better to choose intermediate or advanced level of an SEO.

    I could recommend our agency because we provide full range of services (UI/UX design, web development, website testing, SEO), if you are interested in our approach. Our approach is SEO marketing strategy. We begin our process from research of your audience to anderstand their needs and pains. Also we audit your marketing and your site (UI/UX design, bugs, informational architecture, content mapping, context). Tech SEO issues should be fixed.
    We don't follow majority part of "basic SEO tips and check lists" which are provided by SEO community.

    Well, first - no one will give you free knowledge. The reason is... well... check Fiverr, words are useless. The second thing is that you will not be able to learn everything for a month simply because new things and requirements are coming every day... You can learn the basics, for sure.
    If an SEO company or freelancer have to work on your website and at the same time teach you, they will spend double the time to finish a task that may take for example an hour or just 20 mins, does not matter. So the price becomes double as well. That is why if you want to learn SEO from online courses, find SEO Courses near you..... OR hire someone to do the work... Be aware that when you start learning you will have to spend time only for that, and if the website ( your business ) is a shop or promotes your services, you will have no time to work. This one depends on your business.

    There are some things that you can learn on your own which will improve your rankings. Plenty of self help guides in websites and books. It is good to gain that knowledge and then go to an SEO knowing exactly what you want and being able to asses whether their offering makes sense. However, if you are in a very competitive market, an SEO's experience can be valuable. So the answer is that you can learn the basics quite easily but in order to be good enough to rank well in the most competitive keywords, you will need to spend a lot of time and effort.

    Plenty of Videos on YouTube about SEO. It's not that hard really. The most important factor is onsite SEO, but most so called experts want you to think its all about Link building
