    Finding a qualified SEO can sometimes be tricky. With regard to Castlewave, their web copy is VERY poorly written- if they can’t take the time to write effective copy on their own site, what makes you think they’ll do a better job with yours?

    Be wary of any company which sends unsolicited emails or phonecalls. I wrote an article to help business owners entitled “Choosing Your SEO: 5 Red Flags to Watch For,” located here:

    Unfortunately for the real SEOs (and business owners), Search Engine Optimization remains a relatively new field in comparison to traditional forms of marketing. As a result, you’ll find a lot of people selling snake-oil just to make a buck — at your company’s expense.

    Google Webmaster Central has an article on SEO, where they give you a list of good questions to ask potential firms. Here’s the URL:

    Hope this has helped.

    I don’t know Castlewave.com but generally steer clear of SEO companies that claim:

    1. guaranteed results
    2. 1000′s of directory links
    3. sends you an email saying they found you on yahoo or google and can improve your rankings

    There are a number of sources for reputable seo companies -

    Additionally ask other local business owners who they use and who they recommend, or check with your local chamber of commerce.

    When choosing an seo here are some questions to ask:

    Do you have any initial or set up fees? How much and what do the set up fees cover?

    Are there ongoing fees, how much and what does it cover?

    Do you require a contract and for how long?

    Is the work you do for me permanent?

    Do you provide regular reports and how frequently?

    When should I expect to see results?

    Do you help improve on site conversions?

    Which of your SEO tactics provide the best results?

    References?

    SEO is a scientific game these days. My advice to you is read a couple of good articles on SEO from a trusted source. Form a belief system of your own. Then find a company you are comfortable will execute and critique your plan.

    Otherwise you may buy a bottle of snake oil.
