Rankings aren’t all that: How to really track SEO improvements

There are LOTS of people out there that don’t understand what SEO is and how you do it. I wish I had a dollar for every time I was told to go do my “SEO magic” by a client. These same people are hungry to see results to make sure that you are actually doing work that you were paid for. This makes showing progress and improvements to the client very important. Trust me, clients are not going to keep send you checks if you can’t show how your efforts are improving their site.
