It's no longer a debate as to whether or not you need search engine optimization (SEO). 75 percent of users never go past the first page on search and there are millions of websites all competing for the top prize. SEO allows you to stand ahead of your competition while appearing prominently on search.

After realizing SEO is an absolute digital marketing necessity, companies want to know how much they will have to pay in order to get an SEO plan that works for them.

To begin with, look at the scope of your business. How many websites do you have, are they ecommerce, are you on social media, what are your current traffic numbers and what are your goals for both impressions and sales?

As with a lot of business models, the bigger you are the more you will need to be fully covered. At the very minimum, expect to pay $100 an hour for basic SEO service.

A few things to keep in mind within that price point. One, make sure your hourly rate is all inclusive. If you have to pay for keyword research, meetings and other tasks out of pocket in addition to your hourly rate the bill could increase rather quickly.

Two, make sure your results are reviewed with you live every month. Accountability is key when it comes to SEO. And finally, use a company that studies the search algorithms every day and can present the best possible plan to your company.
