SEO can be very tricky in 2017 and many tactics that worked before might be obsolete now. In fact, some of the the old tactics—all they can do any more is harm your SEO performance!
If you want to drive leads and sales and grow your revenue online with SEO, you need to work with an SEO expert who knows what it takes to improve website rankings in the search engines. Some “SEO experts” are still focusing on building links. In this post-Penguin and post-Panda era we live in, coinciding with the dawn of AI, these old tactics will blacklist your website for months and even years to come.
You don’t want that!
What you do want is a tailored approach that’s completely customized for your business and your business alone. I know that each client who comes to me has a unique business. That’s why, in order to rank on the first page of the search results, each website requires a different approach to on and off-site submissions. My SEO services and analysis are focused on finding the shortest and safest way for your business to appear on Google and drive leads and business. I analyze and look at many factors before I propose a strategy and run optimization. These include: domain age, previous off-site SEO activities and backlink profile quality, search engine penalties, keyword monthly search volume and market competitiveness.
My SEO services will work for any website, no matter where it’s based, no matter what it’s selling, and no matter where the target audience resides. Some websites require local SEO and landing page optimization while others need more quality backlinks and content marketing strategy. I’ve offered SEO consulting services and improved ROI for websites and clients in the following industries:
My clients are from Canada, United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Netherlands, Ireland, plus a whole host of other countries.
Your website, industry and competitors are analysed to find the right keywords —the ones your prospects are searching for. The SEO strategy will focus on improving your ranking and driving leads sales and revenue.
I set up and manage Pay Per Click campaigns (PPC) for the major search engines. These appear as sponsored results right below the search bar, and can draw the initial attention of prospects. This can provide you with traffic (same day) and, more importantly, generate leads for your business.
If you have a physical location where you sell your products or offer services, Local SEO can help you attract local prospects and get more local inquiries.
Please email or schedule a call with me to discuss your business goals and marketing strategy. Our initial conversation is free, while we discuss your project. If you would like to proceed, I charge hourly or per project, depending on services and work required to improve your site and your rankings.
Please provide your website URL, keywords, target regions, marketing goals, previous SEO history and project budget to create a customized proposal that will meet your expectation.
There are many different factors that will affect the timeline and results. Before I start my services, I’ll analyse your website and, based on your goals and budget, will provide an estimate on how long it will take to rank your website on the first page and how much it will cost you.
Some of the factors that I will consider:
Websites with clean backlink profiles and quality content can rank for low to medium keywords within 4-8 months. If you had any Google penalties, over-optimization, new domain or low-quality content it can take an additional 3-6 months to rank it in the top 10.
If you need a quick turnaround and results, we can set up a paid campaign on search engines and social media and you can see your first visitors the next day.
If you think that working with an SEO company can help you save time and money and get professional service, you might be wrong. Your monthly SEO fee will usually include office lease, sales commissions, and operational expenses. Some portion will go toward actual SEO activities that will be done by junior marketer. The junior SEOs don’t usually have the experience or interest to execute on SEO strategy and deliver performance-based services. In most cases, you are paying for the brand, and the majority of work are done by inexperienced marketers.
If you work with independent SEO expert you have direct access to important knowledge, you get educated answers (not the sales templates), and your service fees are going towards improving your website and your rankings. An SEO expert can be an extension of your team: attending meetings and reviewing progress with you. You can be sure that his experience will help your business grow.
My policy is to be honest and transparent to prospects and existing clients. My goal is not just to sell you a certain number of backlinks but to help your website get more traffic, calls and quote requests. I do this by optimizing competitive keywords that have a good amount of search traffic and improving your ranking from “not in top 100” to “top 10” (first page) of Google. Other SEO experts will only mention “recommended period – 6 months”, “12 years in business”, “we helped 1000 companies”, “improve your ranking”, “get tons of traffic”, “be on top/front of Google” but all that won’t help your website be on the first page of Google.
On average, the majority of keywords rank in top 10 within 3-8 months. Some low-competition keywords for well-established websites rank even faster – within the first 2 months. Although highly competitive keywords can take up to 12 months to rank on the first page. I provide personalized analysis and advice to every client and closely monitor their SEO campaigns because your success is my goal!
My SEO work is a perfect fit for all types of websites and keywords, geographical areas and type of optimization (global/local). Moreover, I can provide you with clear answers about exactly what need to be done, how much it will cost, and how long it will take to rank you on the first page of Google. I have worked on a wide range of projects and my clients include local flower shops, real estate brokers, e-commerce websites (worldwide), across Toronto, Markham, Vancouver, Calgary, Los Angeles, New York, London and other cities worldwide. I can rank any keyword for any website in any city and country.
I have my own database of websites and services that Google likes and doesn’t consider as spammy or unnatural. In backlinking campaigns I use a diversity of social media, bookmarking, articles, press releases, and directories that include only real websites with good SEO metrics, traffic and Google trust. I don’t use abused blog comments (1000 links on one page), abandoned websites spammed with links, hidden backlinks, redirects, automation software and other Black/Gray SEO techniques, also I don’t use spun/low-quality content as Google will easily detect such submissions and it can put your website at risk. In short, I only use white-hat SEO Techniques that comply with Google Webmaster Guidelines.
If you are looking for an experienced SEO consultant to take your website to the next level, look no further. I’ve been creating and implementing digital marketing campaigns for small and medium sized businesses since 2008.
I specialize in SEO, web design, digital strategy, keyword research, paid search, lead generation, conversion optimization and content marketing.
