Almost agencies or individual Seo people’s have not much experience so they perform some unwanted or strange things or never ask few crucial questions before start or taking any project. According to my perceptions, before start a Seo project of any company or website you should organize a question answer session to get listen all their queries carefully as well as you can ask your questions also to give meaning of this discussion.
Questions And their Associate Answers:
These questions will build friendly relationship between you and your clients or also create better understanding. Let’s see those question, which you should ask to your client before go ahead to pick this Seo project.
Q 1: From Which Category Your Website Belongs to?
This is simple straightforward question asking by you to your client. It is important for your o know about what kind of website he/she is running such as News magazine, a blog, entertainment website, company or enterprise based site and trust or organization etc.

Domain niche should be related to their client business category. Hosting should be 100% safe because it is important to choose a secure place where you entire website will be hosted, we recommend HostGator for shared hosting and Digital Ocean for advance Cloud VPN hosting.
Q 6: How Much Budget You Allocated For Seo?
This is something what you are asking how much you will spend on Seo to grow your business. Accordingly to our experience minimum $500 per month and maximum there is no threshold. It can be $20,000 or more than this. Usually well reputed website’s around internet spend approximately $2000 to $5000 per month on Seo to build or maintain their search engine ranking.
Note: Around internet market , there are so many clumsy Seo folks who say’s that pay $100 or $200 for Seo for a month so that is something like joke also that commitment has no professional approach.
Q 7: Are you Building Backlinks By Itself?
As we know that building backlinks is considered as the most necessary part of off-page Seo. If your client are already involving to building backlinks from their on way so that can be risky because a Seo establishes an external link under the consideration of white hat Seo.
Q 8: Which Platform You Are Using To Run Your Website?
Most important question from my own perspective. Mostly user (80%) uses pre-made scripts such as for news magazine or blog site WordPress, For ecommerce site Magento and OpenCart for Community forum vbulletin and Discourse. Only 20% users preferred their own custom scripts that’s why they hire developers team so if your client is using own custom scripts so he will be responsible to integrate Seo features or options in his platform as Seo expert will say. Majority or above mentioned CMS or pre-made scripts already have Seo options to go ahead so there is nothing like panic with it.
Q 9: How Much You have presence on Social Media?
You should be aware about your future project each and everything to handle it comfortably. You should ask to your client how much presence they have on social media sites such as they have business pages or profiles or not if they have so please give us access to review it that is correctly connected with your website or there is any misplacement of any link so we can do it correct for you.
Q 10: Did You Use Any Seo Service Before this?
That is important for us to know about that because if you were used any Seo service in past so first we should check your website current Seo status or spamming rate. Why did you leave those people’s or agency Seo service? Are they did not fulfill their commitment as they discussed before taking this project?
Q 11: How Many People Have Access on Your Website Assets?
Last but effective question again from my point of view. If you were experienced any Service in past, and also if you handover your login or administrative details to any person or company so that can be danger for us during work so please change your all login details such as passwords, security questions etc. Must read How to make strong password that will help you to secure your accounts without any additional expense.
