    Question Is an SEO specialist necessary?

    Hey guys, is it necessary to consult an SEO specialist when designing a new website for the first time? I am talking about a freshly made site which has a section for product details and a marketplace. Would it be good if I just ignore the SEO altogether?

    That depends. You can ignore the SEO if you are not worried about search engine traffic. If you are concerned with search traffic, you probably don't want to ignore SEO.

    A new website required an SEO specialist to handle its internal structures optimization and craft the site according to the target users demand.

    If it's for a website with a product section and a market place, I would recommend getting an SEO specialist during development. I think it will make things a lot easier for both the SEO specialist and the developer rather than trying to change things after the development is completed.

    SEO is a long term plan. If you simply need it for a marketing funnel from PPC then SEO isn't needed as much.

    At first, just make sure you have good written content, and good meta titles and meta descriptions.

    After a few months, and some organic traffic, you can start focusing more on SEO and analysing what needs more attention.

    I wouldn't say ignore SEO altogether. I would probably just hire one to get the site architecture done as that would be the most important thing. But entirely depends on if the search engine traffic brings in a good portion or revenue whatever your goals are for the site.

    Now every basic SEO steps are given on internet. While designing a new website you can keep those in mind and design. You will see your website appearing in search results. However if want to compete in your niche and earn much higher traffic then better consult SEO analyst as they have well planned strategies to increase the website rankings.

    Yes, it is really recommended, simply because it is much easier to build SEO-friendly site rather than changing it for SEO later. Overall it is needed if you are planning to get traffic from search engines, if you are planning to use adwords etc it's not so necessary.

    I am a newbie to this but as much as I understand the ways about earning through websites, SEO is important to make you more popular, and it is more necessary to new websites. Generating more traffic means it'd be easier to generate advertisements, which means more profit, right? Obviously, hiring someone who really knows what he's doing and an expert at this is the best way to go.

    No not really needed. It starts with good quality content and good keywords so you can rank in the search engine. You have to be patient though as it will take sometime for your site to see rankings and traffic (3-6 months) this is if you are starting your website from scratch. You have to be consistent with content.
