Unclear about SEO prices? Are you confused about the SEO landscape and need clarity on how much you have to pay for decent results?
Everything you need to know about SEO costings and prices is explained in detail below
There are so many SEO agencies that have a full price list online, but this is not the way we operate. Our prices vary from customer to customer because we don’t take a ‘cookie cutter’ approach to our clients. Each business is different and will require varying amounts of work dependent on their online position on Google, age of their website, the competitive nature of their keywords, size of the site and what they are hoping to achieve online. Once we have established all these factors then we can look at an accurate SEO monthly price.
Some businesses are easier to rank than others while some businesses require a tremendous amount of work and TLC.
Our main aim is to deliver the largest possible ROI for your business for this particular marketing channel. Every $ you spend on your SEO will deliver tangible, visible results. If we don’t feel that we can achieve this for you then we won’t work with you. That’s how honest and upfront we are!
We are realistic about our abilities and what we can achieve and this is also reflected in the SEO costings.
We’re Not a $500 Per Month SEO company
You can find these types of agencies everywhere online who claim to be ‘ SEO Experts” but will be more than happy to cut their SEO prices to $500 per month. This is SEO insanity and to expect a good ROI all businesses have to have a fair SEO budget and be prepared to pay a fair SEO price per month. Low SEO Fees are essentially a scam designed to make you commit to them for a year but the results will reflect the financial commitment.
There are also those SEO agencies that will charge in excess of $5000 per month and deliver the same type of results. They will dazzle you with glitzy offices and offer you sparkling water in the meetings but the work they actually do is questionable. You’ll probably get a few backlinks and an end of month report, but again; your just another sales target. Basically, the more money they can get out of you, the more they’ll try. This is definitely not the way we work or operate.
We are a small SEO agency that take on specific clients that we feel we can help achieve the best possible ROI. We are very aware of most businesses online marketing budgets and we’ll only charge based on the work needed to get you the type of results you expect. You will work directly with me: Steven Walberg (director of SEO Sydney Experts) and not an account manager.

Delivering Long Term SEO Results
Cheap SEO sounds great when you talk to the sales person over the phone. This is totally understandable. Why wouldn’t you go with an agency that is offering SEO guarantees for less than $1000 per month. But, danger lurks here. Cheap SEO companies offering ranking guarantees is the worst possible path to take. The reason being is that they will never actually do any work on your site. It’s a total con a complete scam and these companies work on turnover of businesses signing up to their SEO packages. Think about this if they have 500 clients each paying them $1000 per month they are turning over $500,000 per month which is a fantastic business model considering they are not doing any work.
- Some of the immediate risks of working with a ‘cheap SEO’ agency include:
- They will never look at your ‘on page ‘ SEO which is one of the most important building blocks for your online visibility
- All their work is out sourced and they pay next to nothing for this – they therefore make huge profit margins on the back of your business
- More than likely they will use ‘black hat’ strategies that will ear you a Google penalty
- They do nothing. They sit there and take your money and BS to you about the good work they are doing. It’s all smoke and mirrors. Most businesses believe their lies – it’s much more common than you think.
- They might also land you in a Google penalty with their ‘black hat’ SEO work.
FAQ’s for SEO Pricing
Do Your Offer Month-To-Month SEO Contracts?
Our aim at SEO Sydney Experts is to work along side our SEO clients. We wants to nurture their business and help it grow online. Your success is our success and we are not here to lock you into lengthy contracts. We do understand that some businesses are afraid to commit to any form of marketing contracts especially, in this post COVID 19 business environment.
Plus, we want our clients to see how we perform and be able to renew our SEO services on a month to month basis based on our performance and ability to deliver on what we say. Locking people into a contract can put people and businesses under stress and this is the last thing we want to happen. When your business grows and your happy with our work then you continue with the monthly SEO – simple as that!
Plus, going on a month to month contract offers flexibility for our clients. Our SEO is so powerful and we are able to build so much authority to your website that taking a few months break or reducing your monthly budget to try other forms of marketing is not going to affect or harm your rankings too much. The caveat here is a few months and taking a break from your SEO should only be a very short term activity.
How Much Should I Spend on SEO Services?
This is a very common question asked by our clients who generally fall into two categories. Existing clients who are so happy with our SEO services that they want to increase their marketing spend to see how far we can push rankings or they have a new product or services that they need to rank on Google. These existing clients will generally increase their internet marketing / SEO budget by about 50%. Then there are prospective clients who have either done SEO in the past and want to switch agencies (for one reason or another – generally they are unhappy with the results) or are launching a business and need some SEO help.
Whatever the category of client our SEO pricing is fair, honest, upfront and totally transparent. Once I have a clearer understanding of your business, it’s goals, I will set realistic ranking expectations and prices. We are definitely not greedy and our end game is to see your business be the best it can be online.
Is There any form of SEO Guarantee from SEO Sydney Experts?
The internet is packed with companies offering ranking guarantees and promises that they will be able to get X amount of keywords on page 1 of Google within X amount of days. And, to be honest these are the companies you need to avoid. We can easily get you to page 1, but if we do that we will be using non compliant Google strategies. Our goal is to set your site up for the long haul so your rankings are solid, sustainable and permanent.
Google will even tell you that guaranteeing some form of Google ranking is impossible. So anyone preaching and selling this myth is obviously unaware of Google’s rules and should be steered well clear of.
Having said all the above you are going to want to know that we are performing and delivering on what we say. We will provide you with clear, easy to understand monthly reports and show you exactly the link building activity that has taken place over this period.
Are There Hidden Fees?
Absolutely not. All our fees are quoted to you before we commence any form of work. Obviously, if you require any website design or development or copy writing to help achieve our SEO goals we will tell you about this and provide a written quote.
Our monthly SEO retainer includes all link generation, off page work, and all ‘on page’ optimsation needed.
What Happens Once I Sign-Up?
Once we have emailed you your SEO agreement and you have emailed it back to us we will commence the campaign. We don’t (unlike other agencies) schedule more meetings and calls. We start on this ASAP. We will look at you competition, see what they are doing and then look at ways to out rank them online. We definitely don’t copy them but use our proven SEO techniques and strategies to seriously improve your rankings. We will look at all your titles, descriptions, tags, web content, graphics, site structure and navigation within week 1. We will also we will sync your Google Analytics, Google Search Console and Google My Business account so that we can undertake the necessary research and monitoring.
We will hold you hand the whole way and be in touch with you via phone or email to keep you up to speed on our progress. Each month you will see a report detailing your rankings and the work completed.
This process of delivering great results, on page website optimisation and online marketing help and advice will continue throughout the life of your campaign. I am available most of the time to discuss your campaign and any SEO questions you may have.
