Small Business SEO Performance Lacking?

If you operate a small business, mid-market company, startup or a franchise,  you’ve probably tried to search for your company on Google or Bing or maybe even a few keywords that you know would be great to rank for.

What did you find? Was it what you were hoping for? If not, this is where our professional  SEO services can help.

With 97% of U.S. internet users gathering shopping information and making purchasing decisions from information they find within the search engines, simply having a website isn’t enough.

When your small business website is optimized for Google, Bing, and Yahoo, your business becomes visible to more people, who are already searching for what you offer.

Our User-Focused SEO Beliefs

93% of online experiences start with a search engine, and Google is where a large majority of users go to find information to help inform their purchase decisions.

Because of this, our professional SEO strategists believe SEO is about creating targeted and valuable experiences to earn traffic for high-value keywords – we call this User-Focused SEO.

User-Focused SEO focuses on increasing conversions and user satisfaction by creating an environment that allows the user to connect directly with the content that best matches their intent when searching from a desktop computer, tablet, or mobile device.
