    A hypothetical question


    A hypothetical question for SEOs

    Imagine you were working on optimizing a site that was selling capillary array DNA sequencers or some other keyword phrase/term that was not exactly “challenging.”

    Now if you were working on trying to gat better visibility in Google for a site that was a very competitive keyword phrase/term.

    Would an SEO do anything different, would they or use any different techniques?

    So the question is, is it the same amount of effort (therefore cost) to get a good SERP, irrespective of the competitiveness?

    Initial optimization is basically the same I would say. The difference is that the monitoring and tweaking will take more time for the competitive keyword domain than the uncompetitive, which should get right up there first indexation. So yes, an SEO can legitimately imo charge more for a more competitive phrase, as more time would be required getting the optimization just right. In practice many dont bother (myselk included) and charge a set price regardless as it all tends to even out in the end.
