SEO in Alexandria The Top Freelancers + Tips

Did you know that about 68% of all online experiences begin with a search engine? And, a new study claims that the Internet is used by almost 5.35 billion people around the world in January 2024. I'll let you do the math here, but let me tell you that you're leaving A LOT of money on the table if you're not doing SEO for your business website.

In this article, I'll share some tips on how to pick an SEO agency or freelancer to work with, and what to expect, in addition to recommending a few of the top SEO services that are available in Alexandria, Egypt.

Picking an SEO Agency or Freelancer in Alexandria, Egypt

SEO is a long-term game that may take 4-12 months on average to start showing results. That said, making a data-driven decision on which SEO freelancer to hire is key. With more than 5 years of hands-on experience in the SEO field, I'll walk you through the most important factors to take into consideration when hiring an SEO.

Experience & Portfolio

First and foremost, an SEO's previous work experience and results with clients that are in a similar position/industry as your business is crucial. Dump certificates and educational background, your number one KPI to consider a potential SEO agency or freelancer are RESULTS.

Ask your potential candidate what their most recent achievements with clients are, what was the impact on the client's sales/goals, and how much time it took to see those results.

Let's say you have a local business and want your business to show on the local map pack on Google when anyone searches for a service you offer. In this case, make sure your candidate has some experience with Local SEO clients as it's different than ordinary SEO, which focuses on search results only.


More often than not, agencies charge much more than freelancers. An agency has overhead expenses that most freelancers don't. However, an agency usually offers a more holistic service such as account management, more responsive support, etc.

In 2024, you can find beginner SEO freelancers who charge around ~5,000 EGP per month as a starting package and more experienced SEOs will charge anywhere between 8,000 to 25,000 per month for a starting package depending on their experience.

As for agencies, it's hard to find an SEO agency that charges less than 25,000 EGP for a starting package. As I said earlier, both options have their advantages and drawbacks. If you're a small or medium business and you're on a limited budget, I'd recommend going for a freelancer. On the other hand, if you're a corporation that wants to deal with a more robust and organized system (and the budget is not a concern to you), then you can opt for an agency.

Technical Background

Some websites are built using CMSs (Content Management Systems) like WordPress. Other websites are built using more complicated ways that require some technical background to be able to deal with.

If your website is built using custom code (AKA: native), then you should align with your potential SEO candidate on this and whether they have the required technical background to work on your website.

What to Expect

One thing you should know is that SEO will not work for all businesses. The ultimate goal of SEO is to get traffic from Google to your website which would then translate into more sales, leads, or other business goals.

But what if your business provides services or sells products that no one is searching for on Google? You'd be throwing your marketing budget to waste if you invest in SEO in this case.

I encourage you to use a tool like Google Trends to get an idea of whether your services or products are being searched for on Google or not. I'm also offering this analysis for free. If you want to know whether SEO would be a good marketing channel for your business or not, send me an email with your business details to [email protected] and I'll happily offer this analysis free of charge.

Just make sure the email headline is "Google Trends Analysis Request".
