How much does SEO cost?

SEO is a time consuming and on-going effort. The rules of the game change frequently, and there are thousands of businesses compete for the same keywords. Reserach suggests that an average SEO expert charges between $80 and $150 per hour (assuming you want to avoid hucksters), with monthly retainers averaging between $1,00 and $7,500.  Still, search engine optimization is one of the most affordable forms of advertising and produces an exceptionally high return on investment (ROI). The cost of SEO, while not always the least expensive form of marketing, is very often the most effective, giving you a much lower cost per conversion than other forms of advertising.

*Guarantee: If we do not place you on page one for the specified number of keywords, we will continue to work at no charge until we accomplish this for you, up to the length of the contract. Keyword phrases must be approved by WebStores Ltd. Example: you have chosen the keyword phrase, “custom painted murals for restaurants in Denver”. You have a six-month contract. If, at the end of 6 months, you are still not listed on page one of Google for that keyword phrase, we will continue our efforts for up to another six months at no cost in an attempt to get you listed on page one. Once you are listed on page one under this guarantee, our obligation is over. This basically insures that you will be listed on page one!
