Is there any difference when using a sem expert in Afghanistan compared to having the staff working on this inhouse?Should you hire professionals from a sem expert in Afghanistan or is it better to use someone in the organization to take care of sem at the house?The questions you need to ask yourself has a number of aspects that you should think about. Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a sem expert is needed or whether it is better using internal staff at the house at the local branch office in Afghanistan.
Use of your own staff in Afghanistan to manage projects outsourced to the sem expertOften, people in the Afghanistan-office can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what one would expect from a sem expert far away or what the people at the headquarters of your organization are aware of. However, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the sem expert. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be discussed.

Good sem toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a sem expert – whether this is handled by local staff in Afghanistan, 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.
Ranks.nlRanks.nl has a bunch 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 sem expert you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
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 Afghanistan 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. You can use this tool to find out everything you need to know about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Afghanistan 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.
