If you're new to Search Engine Optimization Services then perhaps you should try a few free SEO analysis services before you go for the real thing. This is great so you can try before you know what you're looking for and it's also a great way of learning SEO without having to spend money.Many of the companies that offer paid SEO services also offer some kind of free SEO analysis where you get a basic report. In the beginning when you're new this could be a great way of learning SEO, and also if you're site is pretty new and you're still building and designing it, it's great to learn in which direction you should design your site before you go live with it.
When you have received your free analysis, you can easily adapt your site or blog to match the analysis. Once you've corrected the basic misstakes or corrected the basic stuff you can pay an expert for the more advanced stuff. THis way you should have saved a few bucks by doing the basic stuff right on your own and then just have an expert to do the advanced stuff.
Learning more SEO this way is of course the best benefit because the more SEO you understand the more SEO you can build into your blogs and services already from the beginning even if you don't do the SEO work yourself later on.
