SEO : "The Man Behind the Curtain"

This week’s SEOmoz whiteboard Friday talks about hiring a consultant for your SEO. One of the frustrations with buyers is the lack of transparency in strategy and tactics. This week’s whiteboard Friday does a great job of explaining what to look for when you are shopping around for search engine optimization services.

While it’s not wise for SEOs to give everything away before winning a contract, I feel consultants and firms should be more transparent in their approach. How is a buyer able to truly compare firms and services if they do not know the tactics involved or what’s being measured. Every company or service is a little different, but a majority of SEO services performed should be similar based on the size of a client’s website. Do you agree? How much information is too much?
