1. How to find a freelance SEO service provider using Google search
It is the best way to hire a freelance SEO service provider. You just need to type in a few words like “freelance SEO service provider” or “freelance SEO specialist (your city)”. Replace the city name with an actual city name where you live. You will find a lot of SEO specialists who can help your business grow. You can also download search results to CSV file.
However, you should test the SEO knowledge of the individual/agency you want to hire.
Contact those websites and ask for help. If the company or a freelancer is not willing to show interest in your business or have no idea how to tackle SEO errors on your website, then find another one.

Join local networking events in your field. There must be someone from the marketing industry.
That’s how most freelance SEO businesses establish their identity and generate new leads for their business.

- Ask questions which will help both of you understand the actual SEO job. Ask them questions like how do they create backlinks, what SEO tools do they use, etc…
- Most SEO professionals have a portfolio of results and case studies which they can show you upon request.
4. Find SEO service provider using Bidding sites and job boards
These sort of websites are good to find cheap labor outside of your country especially if the country you are living in has a higher minimum wage.
