In some cases, you may work with an SEO agency and later on see your traffic drop. A decrease in traffic can raise a concern, but only if your revenue goes down. In some cases, your traffic may drop, but your revenue increases

SEO agencies should have something to show in the first few months. We’re not expecting to see results or a rise in rankings. Instead, the agency should be able to provide you the actual SEO practices they are doing.

If any of these happen, start asking questions from your agency. If their response sounds, looks, feels or smells suspicious, ask them to stop immediately and contact a reliable SEO company to recover the damage.

An SEO agency that’s doing good stuff will need your help from the beginning of the process. You’re the site owner, so here are the accesses that they might ask you to grant them:

  • Editor or admin access to your CMS
  • View or admin access to Google Analytics
  • Access to Google Webmaster Tools
  • Access to social accounts
  • A list of target keywords
  • Past audits/penalties/work

If they don’t ask for anything and or any access, there is a good chance they are adding linkbacks from their network of spammy sites and performing potentially harmful actions. We highly recommend being cautious about their activities before your site gets penalized.
