    Paid SEO or Free SEO?

    I am being offered by an interesting SEO service that they are telling me it it help my site to get organic traffic after 3 months, but that will require me to invest money for this service. I think I can use my time to do SEO for my site too and it save my money but it also consume more my time. What is better way to get organic traffic? Paid SEO or Free SEO?

    If you got funds, then you'll get faster results by paying for these services. Just make sure that the service is legit and that they're doing their job properly.

    Hiring a reliable and good SEO company is very important as many of them are scam and can harm your SEO negatively. I prefer learn the SEO yourself and implement them on your website. If you failed it will help you to hone your skills and give you a complete data on SEO and how it works?

    Paid search has been more popular in recent years as organic search has become more competitive.
    Because realistically, it takes three to six months to start seeing movement in search rankings and most people just don't want to wait that long. Paid search helps you get visitors to your website today and also speeds up the process of optimizing your landing pages for higher conversions, which pays off exponentially in the long run.
    If you're looking for the quickest results, paid search is better, but if you're looking for the most cost-effective results,then choose free SEO.Organic SEO is the safest means of promoting your self online. If you use organic SEO, you won’t have any trouble from search engines like Google or Bing. Because organic SEO involves using your own links and content without any outside help, it falls under Google’s search engine ranking guidelines, allowing you the freedom to make any choices you desire without risk.

    I think for instant traffic you should go with a paid option, but if you want long lasting traffic on your website then you have to select organic SEO or free SEO.

    I think Free SEO is better than Paid SEO. Because you can get benefit those day's you pay, But at Free SEO if you increase your website rank on top. Then it will stay a long time.

    In order to make money (or get serious results) spending is key most if not all the time

    Well, SEO takes time to work. And you need to know what you do, not to mention you might also need to pay for some pretty expensive apps to speed the process (ahrefs, majestic, moz or semrush come to mind). If you have the time and willingness to do the hard work, you can do it for free (since you'll pay with the time you invest). If you want to spend the time running the business and doing your work, you'll most likely want to pay a specialist to boost your results, while you are handling other tasks.

    All depends a lot on supply demand some sites are simple to index right domain with enough content low search results indexed and high search on keywords all make it easier. Then there is opposite where meta tags every page frame gap opening whatever to place content to try get your share. Brands have these issues where they must maximise everything for a place. I will suggest building as many relevant backlinks as possible if your out to do it yourself.

    I am choosing paid SEO because it is quality and easy to make my keywords on top of Google search results than using free SEO, free SEO could not maintain the quality of backlinks and it it not easy to get high rankings with this method.

    Nothing is free, my friend. Even for free SEO, you still have to buy SEO software and expend your time, which in itself is money. For paid SEO, you are just hiring someone to do the task as mentioned above. Are they charging a premium? Of course, they are.

    So, the real question is, are you going to pay the premium or not? So, if you save 2 hours per day and pay $50 extra for that, are you going to break even and surpass that $50 paid in extra? If you know how to make money, you won't worry about paying that premium.

    Paid or Free SEO? The problem with Paid SEO Services is that search algorithms change all the time, and billion dollar companies like Google and Microsoft are not niave about webmasters gaming their search results. It's just that the search companies won't update their algorithm every single minute. They're constantly keeping an eye on the SEO tactics conducted by black-hat webmasters, and then respond when the tactic becomes too widespread. So if you pay for the SEO services, and they do get your website listed on the 1st page, it might not stay there for too long. Your best bet is to do ethical free SEO on your own. You can also try PPC ad networks if you need immediate traffic. This will give you time to develop proper SEO organically.

    Here are some softwares that might help with your SEO effort (some of them I own, while others I have tried):

    ScrapeBox - This is a must-have tool for every webmaster. With ScrapeBox, you can scrape urls of relevant sites (or blogs) that could let you post comments on, which might enable you to leave a valuable backlink to your site. ScrapeBox is cool because it's so customizeable; you can really pinpoint exactly the type of results you want, such as sites with .edu domain (which is considered quite valuable for off-page SEO'ing). ScrapeBox harvesting is also scaleable too. You could run several instances of it (provided that you have the licenses for it), spread out over different computers, and retrieve a massive keyword/url list for you to work with.

    GSA Search Ranker - Some might consider this a black-hat tool, but in my opinion, it can be a white-hat tool too. This is a very well known backlink-posting software. As you probably know by now, backlinking is important for improving off-page SEO. What's great about this software is that you can post articles, comments, etc., on a wide degree of platforms (article directories, blogs, forums, guestbook, and so forth). Like ScrapeBox, this software is highly efficient, customizeable, automated, and scaleable. It is unbelievably fast, and the developer / vendor behind it constantly update it, seemingly on an everyday basis. If you want to stay on the white-hat side, best to choose legit platforms, post your custom articles and comments lightly and sparingly, and make sure to spread it out over time. Way too much backlinking, too soon, too fast, will not only signal red flags to the search engines, but it will be considered spamming. Nobody wins in the end by doing that.

    Site Visualizer - I've mentioned a couple of great software that will help with off-site SEO'ing. Now, here's a couple that can help with on-site SEO'ing. Site Visualizer is a very multi-faceted, versatile tool. It can crawl your website and retrieve back a treasure trove of critical information. You can discover flaws in your internal links, anchor, and heading titles (among other things). This kind of information is critical because when designing pages with on-page SEO'ing in mind, you would want to optimize it. This tool can help with identifying the weak SEO areas of your site. My suggestion is, as valuable as this tool is, don't over-optimize your site (such as setting all your pages with H1 Headers, keyword-stuffing on link titles, and so forth. As said earlier, Google and Microsoft are not niave about aggressive SEO'ing.

    Plagiarism Checker X - Now this software only does one thing but it does it well, which can have a significant impact for your on-site SEO. As the name suggest, the software will check your webpages for duplicate content across the Internet. Now there has always been a debate about whether Google penalizes websites with duplicate content, but in my opinion, it's always smarter to err on the safe side. I've tried many of the online plagiarism checkers but I found some of them very limiting (some of course, are also very good too, which I've bookmarked on my toolbar). But where Plagiarism Checker X shines is that there is virtually no limit to the number of searches that can be made, since it's a desktop software. If you care at all about staying out of legal trouble (cause plagiarizing can land you in hot water), then you should check your content first before posting. There is a free, basic version of this software, whic is good for webmasters that doesn't need to update their site too often.

    There's actually a ton more software, online or desktop, that can help with your SEO'ing, and certainly I've own some and tried many of them. I can't review them all here (otherwise this post will turn into a 30 page essay) but you're welcome to message me, and if I've tried the software you're considering, I'll let you know my opinion of it.

    Happy SEO'ing
