Our web design company provides SEO services to website clients and "non website clients". We implement our services (title/meta tags, optimized content, etc) directly to the sites of website clients because we host and manage them. But, for "non website clients" we leave the implementation of the SEO services up to their webmaster because it's less complicated and there's not as much liability involved.

I'm looking for thoughts and feedback on this strategy, specifically on how we're handling "non website clients". Are other SEOs doing things differently? Is there something we should reconsider?

Your feedback / expertise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much!

Yes, imo it's fine. There's no reason for you to be getting into the back end of anyone's website. To me, that's much better left to the client and their IT team.

Jill,

THANK YOU! That's exactly the insight I was looking for.

My apologies for the late reply!

Thanks a million!

For what it's worth, that's how my team handles clients who do their own Web site management. We provide them with explicit, detailed instructions on what we recommend and discuss anything they are unsure about with them. The client retains full control (and responsibility) over the Web site.

Jill has far more trust than I do in geting third parties do do work in a timely and quality manner and theer are some issues that you can only see the problem and advise on solutions even if the best advice would be take the webiste out behind the barn shoot it and start again.

I didn't say that they actually do that. smile.gif

But it is their responsibility, nonetheless.
