You need a new SEO-friendly website and have moved beyond your nephew’s geek dorm mate as an option. That’s a good start. Now continue to “do your homework.

When considering any Internet Marketing firm, always ask to see links to their client sites. Add a star if they have a client roster that includes sites relative to your industry. Be sure and ask for a list of site pages that they have optimized for each within the last 3-6 months. They’ll be surprised, but will likely provide these for you.

Next, visit each of the sites. Be sure to right click on an ‘optimized’ page then select ‘view source code.’ Check the html code for the metas for keywords. These should be near the top of the page. Locate the keywords then Google/Bing and Yahoo them. See if any or all rank on the first two pages of the search engine results pages (S.E.R.P.s). If not, thank them for their time and keep looking.

Remember, you are not expecting a firm unfamiliar with you or your business to tell you what you need. No cookie cutter fixes allowed. You should expect an invitation to meet and tour their facility. When you meet, have a list of questions for them. They, as well, should have relevant questions for you.
