What is SEO?

This acronym itself stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is the process of making a site and its content highly relevant for both search engines and searchers to increase ROI or meet goals. SEO includes technical tasks to make it easier for search engine spiders to index the content on a website or social media networking community.

Why do I need SEO help?

  • 90% of users find new sites through search engines.
  • 80% of search engine users don’t browse the results deeper than first two pages.
  • 80% of Internet users browse search engines every day.
  • 75% of online purchases and orders are made on websites found through search engines.

A focused SEO specialist can improve your search engine rankings enough to dramatically increase your website traffic and sales conversions. Even if your website is not a primary sales tool, ranking well in search engine results helps increase the perceived legitimacy, image, and branding of your business.

How does your pricing compare to other SEO companies?

Based on customer feedback, my pricing is typically never the highest, or the lowest. Since I do not have a large downtown office, I am able to keep prices reasonable.

So, with over 18 years of search engine experience, I am not a cheap fly-by-night SEO specialist. Quality provides results and results cost.

Absolutely! Each website is unique, so should your SEO strategy should be too. Each of my SEO Packages will fit the majority of my clients, but custom SEO products are always available.

How long does it usually take to achieve higher search engine rankings?

SEO is a marathon, not a sprint. It’s impossible to see huge changes overnight. Depending on your website, and competitive industry, the time frame for rankings to improve can vary significantly. I typically average (3) weeks before experiencing sustainable ranking increases. I see programs that take weeks and others that take months. Therefore, I set expectations with every customer that the SEO process must be a consistent approach which requires patience.

How often are SEO Ranking Reports provided?

I recognize the strong desire for comprehensive reporting by website owners as a way to ensure that a site is being handled with care and optimized properly.

Ranking reports are sent to my clients every month for 12 months with completed SEO Strategic Plan.

These SEO Reports include Active Keywords, Search Rankings, Competitive Analysis, On-Site Technological Errors, and Link-Building Opportunities.
