I am new to the SEM, SEO world. I just started this position and I am researching a number of companies to help us manage our SEM and SEO. I have went though several demo's but hearing what other like and dislike would really help as well. Please let me know any information that you have available.

Thank you in advance.

There really isn't a "best", only what is "best" for your particular needs. Names can't be dropped on this forum, so don't be surprised if you don't get responses or they suddenly dissapear from the moderators doing their jobs.

Thank you for letting me know. Let me ask another question then. Does anyone have any no no's or things that are essential in starting SEO and SEM?

Well I'm sure there are hundreds of no no's...

Main one is don't fall for quick ranking or "link" package schemes.

You are better to find a company/person that also has good HTML/CSS skills to first make sure the site you are promoting is up to par as far as code, structure, content, properly optimized pages, and is seo-friendly. Then it is a matter of looking at your niche and your competitors to see how/why they rank where they do and devise a plan from there.

Things have changed and they will continue to do so. Be careful, work slowly and methodically in the plan you take. Most of the time this can be a slow proccess (depends entirely on your niche/competition), so be patient.

Leslie, are you looking for an agency to run SEM for you or for an in-house tool / application that you or your SEM team can use?

Also, give us a sense of how big your SEM program is? Monthly total ad spend and how many keywords can help guide you to the right provider.

That information doesn't have to be given, and we CAN'T recommend a company because it violates the Terms of Service.

And you can't solicit for your services either - and if you try to by PM it's spam and you're history.
