Most SEO companies will not specify the techniques they use during your campaign. However, this is common among many SEO Companies. They do provide generalization when informing you what changes they will make. For example, on the SEO Gazelle website, we state that we perform “Keyword Research”, “Onsite Optimization”, and “Link Building”. Furthermore, we will explain thoroughly so you understand what they mean. Untrustworthy SEO companies will keep this information hidden from you. They also should explain technical jargon to ensure there is not any miscommunication. If these companies are being vague or refusing to help you understand, it is to your benefit to find a more transparent company. Ensure that your current SEO Company is able to explain changes to your website and why they are making changes. If they can explain their methods to you then they clearly understand what they are doing.
