Ways to build a better relationship with your SEO provider

After running a link agency for the past few years, I can safely say that some clients are easy to work with and some are nightmares. I can also say that the ones who are easy and fun to work with are the ones that truly bring out my passion for the work that we do, and as I see with my own employees, being receptive to listening to someone else's perspective is something that I highly value.
It doesn't matter if a client's niche is exciting or if their site is so amazing that I want to spend hours on it every week. A client who is willing to view our arrangement as a give and take relationship is the client for me.

Here are 15 pieces of advice that will help you build a better relationship with your SEO provider.

1. Be Honest About What You've Done in the Past

2. Don't Immediately Blame Links When Something Goes Wrong

3. No Surprise URL Changes

4. Share Access to Webmaster Tools and Analytics

5. Answer Questions

6. Listen to Our Advice on Risk

7. Don't Employ Multiple Teams or People to do the Exact Same Thing

8. Don't Share Someone Else's Confidential Information

9. Be Clear About What You Want

10. Ask Why a Service Costs What it Does
