Outsource SEO specialists to the Philippines


What is a SEO specialist?

A search engine optimisation (SEO) specialist is responsible for reviewing and editing websites to achieve higher search engine rankings. They are experts at proofing webpages, blogs and any written web content to attract more consumer traffic for an organisation via search engines. They also have good technical skills to enable them to work with web developers to make backend website improvements that also impact search rankings. They liaise with copywriters, content creators, web development and marketing teams to analyse websites for areas of improvement. Their sole goal is to drive more of the right traffic to an organisation’s website. 

SEO specialist duties and tasks can include:

  • Using various search engine marketing techniques and applications to measure, record and reveal SEO ranking scores; this could consist of readability, keywords, plagiarism and word count 
  • On-page optimisation such as reviewing whether the content is of good quality, metadata, HTMl structures and page loading times
  • Link building
  • Checking analytics to discover how webpages are performing and measuring the traffic and performance improvements 
  • Collaborating with digital marketing teams on implementation of SEO strategies. 

These marketing tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced. Organisations free up their local marketing teams’ time by sending these tasks to outsourced SEO specialists.


What key skills and qualifications make a great SEO specialist?

SEO specialists know how valuable quality content is and understand the importance of keywords and phrases that can increase web traffic. They pair this knowledge with their problem solving and decision making skills to determine what, where, why and how often certain words or phrases need to be mentioned for high optimisations standards. A successful SEO specialist understands the balance between technical web page optimisation and keeping it “real”. Essentially, they know how to squeeze in as much SEO favourable content and while still maintaining a level of readability and common sense to a page’s wordflow. 

Working alongside web development, SEO specialists help develop backend optimisation for web pages using Content Management Systems (CMS). This can involve reviewing page content such as headers, URL structure and key heading tags. Further adding to the required technical expertise of a successful SEO specialist is the art of link building. Expanding on their goal to increase search engine rankings of a website or page, they can do so by increasing the number of quality inbound links or getting other websites to link back to the page in question. 

Outsourcing service providers recruit SEO specialists the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have working as an SEO specialist or in a similar role which utilised SEO?
  • How familiar are you with analysing market trends and applying them to webpages and written content?
  • What are some examples of previous successful SEO projects you have been a part of? 
  • How do you ensure excellent communication when liaising with relevant stakeholders to understand their requirements and share a strategy that aligns?
  • What programming languages are you familiar with? HTML, CSS?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What marketing software and tools are you familiar with, broadly and in relation to SEO?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in marketing, communications or business administration is desirable. A few years experience in online marketing is also preferred as SEO specialists understand how to attract target audiences and read market trends; skills developed through on the job experience. 

Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's marketing requirements. By hiring these specialists who can efficiently consult alongside your marketing team to optimise overall website performance, businesses will see an increase in revenue and more time for their onshore staff to focus on what they were hired to do.
