SEO: Choosing the Right Recruit
In the SEO industry, you might as well find it hard to actually zero in on recruits who are equally efficient with their theoretical knowhow as well as practical implementation of the same. As a potential recruit you might be faced with several confusions as to which factors to take in to view while selecting your SEO analyst. Go through the tips mentioned below to be ably guided in this regard:
• One of the ways by which you can identify the talent of a potential recruit is by asking him questions regarding the kind of reading he does. A random list of stuff read by him shouldn’t work for you. See if he is taking the trouble to point out relevant (and recent) blog posts that have influenced him or those to which he didn’t agree at all.
• A good analyst should always be able to provide specific examples of ways that he adopts to scale success. He should be ready with examples of his previous experiments- both of those that clicked and the ones that didn’t. Those who are too vocal about the relationship between “page rank” and “success” should be ticked off immediately.
• Hit the nail right on the head by asking him to analyze his favorite website. See if he is interested in talking aloud about the perceived shortcomings and merits of the site. If possible, show him your website and ask him to get you through.
Try these tricks out to identify and subsequently zero in on the best SEO hire for your company. Asides from the points mentioned above, do watch out if the candidate has considerable influence in Social Media or not, for obvious reasons. Search and Social have seamlessly merged to become the most potent forces driving each other exclusively.
