Question: We have a company that services our website… what is the best way to relay to them that we would like our site to come up on the first page of Google when the key words are serched.
Answer: There are some good SEO companies, and some terrible ones. I like my clients to be empowered: To know their keywords, to have them in RankChecker, to use Google Analytics to see if we are succeeding, etc. SEO is results-based, evidence-based.
If your SEO company does not know your keywords, and isn’t giving you regular reporting on where you are succeeding or failing, you need to either fix them or drop them.
