Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a search engine optimization bureau can be useful or whether it is better using internal staff in the organization at the local branch office in Namibia.
Use of your own staff in Namibia to manage projects outsourced to the search engine optimization bureauOften, people in the Namibia-office can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what is reasonable to expect from a search engine optimization bureau far away or what the people at the headquarters of your company know about. Although, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the search engine optimization bureau. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be agreed about before proceeding.

Good search engine optimization toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a search engine optimization bureau – whether this is handled by local staff in Namibia, or centrally at the corporate headquarter. Below is a handy checklist of things you need to think about, as well as the best tools you can use for either free or commercial tools where free alternatives are not available or significantly inferior to the commercial ones.
Google AlertsTo be on top of things, it is important to know what happens as early as possible. Google Alerts sends you an email every time someone mentions the words and phrases you specify. This can be anything from trademarks that are important to you, people of interest or general words and phrases that are important to your business. You can have alerts for all employees, freelancers you use, your trademarks including websites you run and words and phrases you focus on. All of this gives you a good overview of what is being talked about that matters internally. Google’s notification is free to use and helps you to be early in terms of being on top of what your competitors in Namibia are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
Majestic.comMajestic SEO is the world’s largest link index. Use this tool to find out everything you need to know about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Namibia are doing, or what national and international competitors are up to. Links to your website and subpages are crucial to your search engine rankings, so this is important to keep tabs on.
Ranks.nlRanks.nl has a number of professional SEO tools that I can really recommend. One of the tools I use most is Page Analyzer. With this tool, you can check keyword density on each subpage of your domain to optimize for keywords or phrases. If the search engine optimization bureau you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
