环球国际可以造就或破坏您本地的SEO广告系列， 骗人的. If you want to hire people to help with your 引文s, how 能够 you be confident they’ll do a good job?
我喜欢安德鲁·肖特兰的 发布 on 什么 to ask a customer-review-management service 之前 you hire one. In the same spirit, I thought I’d bring up some 问题 you should ask anyone you’re thinking of hiring for 引文s work.
By the way, I’m not even talking about 什么 to ask some goofball on ELance 要么 Fiverr. Don’t. I’m talking about 什么 you should ask people who seem to be specialists in 引文s 要么 who offer a broader local SEO service that you’re considering.
If it works out to less than about $3 per 引文, you may be paying for sloppy work, 要么 for the work to be done 通过 someone who doesn’t speak the language you do business in. If money is so tight that bottom-dollar actually sounds attractive, you’re better off working on your 引文s yourself. At the 非常少 , ask them the rest of the 问题 and see 什么 they tell you.
“Do you let 我 pick which 引文s I’d like?”
您 probably won’t have to hand-pick all of the 引文s from scratch (although you 能够 ). But you will want to make sure that you see the list of 引文s 之前 your 建设者 work on them. If they plan to submit to 100 sites but you’ve only heard of 10 of them, most of the 引文s are probably junk. ( 这个帖子 能够 help you determine whether the 引文s are any good.)
If the answer to either part of this two-part question is no, find someone else to work on your 引文s. 您 need control of your listings long-term. 您’re paying for those 引文s to be built, not rented to you.
If you want to claim and fix your listings on those sites, you (the business owner) 要么 an employee will have to verify ownership 通过 phone. It’s quick and easy, but a third party 能够 ’t do it for you. The honest answer from your 引文-builders is “We 能够 ’t do those sites for you.” The honest and helpful answer is “We 能够 ’t do those sites, but we 能够 如果需要的话，将引导您完成验证过程。”
“您能准确地告诉我哪些网站已设置好，哪些需要工作，哪些需要？ 我 做某事？”
您 need to be able to see at a glance where each site stands, and if there are any lingering to-dos.
It’s OK if the answer to this is “Nope, all we do is build the 引文s.” 您 just need to know up-front so that you 能够 either find someone who 能够 work on your existing 引文s, 要么 plan on doing it yourself.
您’re fine as long as they give you some idea as to why a given site just doesn’t have your listing 100% correct.
“Do you research the 引文s that matter in 我的 本地市场？”
同样，如果答案是否定的，也可以。但如果– in addition to working on a “core” list of 引文s that are pretty much always important – your 引文-builders try to find the 引文s that seem to matter most in your particular industry and in your city 要么 region.
更新资料– “bonus” question: “How many 引文s do you plan to work on?”
见Nyagoslav Zhekov’s 很棒的评论 ，如下。
