Top Agencies That Knows Their SEO

Edit: We got a quite a bit negative comments about this post from inbound.org. Most of the comments are about the way we ranked the site. There were quite a lot of suggestion about how one should consider revenue, client base or number of employees. But to say that some agency is the best we need benchmark. Number of quality clients can't be and so is the successful campaigns they run. Some agencies might have fewer clients and still be the best at what they do and i can't possibly get to know about their campaigns as an outsider. I've created the list based on the data that are available to anyone, but time consuming for anyone to put together.

But you can see that most of the site listed are not that bad and im glad that this pushed Charles Floate to create a better list. I'm looking forward to his version

In this ocean of spam and wannabes, finding an SEO company is very hard; let alone evaluating the best options based on what's available in the market.

I had a look at most of the so-called "Top SEO" lists and almost all of them don't have accurate data or substantiate the reason why agencies are ranked as such. When you see a list that calls itself the best in the industry, you expect the most talented folks and companies up there, but what you find is a round-robin of sites that you've never heard of before!

So, I wanted to try and figure out which are the best agencies country-wise. Going about this process is not easy. And, the most widely used metric for measuring an agency's success or clout seems to be their client roster or monthly billing; but, this data is not publicly available, nor it is super relevant.

The parameters short-listed were:

Each agency was rated on a parameter of 1-10 with the top agency getting 10 and the least ranked agency getting 1. Links/Domain and social shares gets double the points and the agency that has the highest cumulative score is judged as number 1. If you want to see the raw data click here.

If you have any suggestions, critique or if you want your agency to be considered please mail me(vinothatguestpostlabsdotcom)

* I calculated social shares from the number of tweets, likes and +1's from all the URLs of the agencey's website that were indexed in Google
