Ranking in a short period is possible. But majority of companies offering these pacakages often deceive and the one who delivers will not promise.

4.Keywords or Key Phrases stuffing on the webpage:

Keyword stuffing is one of the most common method used by fraudsters to manipulate search engine ranking. Ask for the agency about the list of websites, they have optimised.

Go to a website, then go to page source see if they have stuffed keywords and key phrases in the head tag or body tag of the web-page. Stuffed keywords are not visible to naked human eye but can be read by crawlers. Often Keyword stuffing is  penalised in case they are very high in number. Keyword stuffing is generally done in the head tag or as alt tags on images.

5. Place hidden text on web pages:

Is your SEO agency placing hidden texts in a page? If yes, then never allow them to work on your website.  Most common and easy way to detect hidden texts is using spam detector.

While selecting an SEO, keep these 5 points in mind. All the best for your business.
