Linchpin Advocates

Everyone has a story to tell.

Our team has worked with, and positively impacted, many great brands, companies, and people over the last 5 years. They all have a unique story to tell about their experience engaging with The Linchpin Team. Here are a few of the many stories that we hear.

Sarah Leitz

LLamasoft, Inc.

A month post launch, we already increased traffic by 7%, and demo requests by 50%.

We had previously decided to not renew the contract with our current SEO firm and realized we needed to start the search for a true SEO partner who could help us through the entire redesign process and also give us deeper insights into SEO management. We evaluated a few firms, but none were as knowledgeable and flexible as Linchpin SEO.

My coworkers and I worked with Bill from the beginning of our website redesign and relaunch to truly come up with a customized plan. None of us were SEO experts and without Bill’s detailed help and suggestions we would never have been able to achieve the success we are having with our new site.

We can’t recommend them highly enough. They are exceptional.

After interviewing local and large national site redesign firms, we couldn’t find a provider who could address all the challenges. Then we found Linchpin SEO.

When the science and technicalities behind what our company does would set most people back, Bill quickly learned the nuances of our technical jargon and seamlessly generated web content. Even as the site proved to be a bigger challenge than first anticipated, Bill came through with the solution for obstacles and problems before they started.

Linchpin SEO met every need we had with our website redesign, site and blog integration, brand and look update, and forms-CRM assimilation.

Bill and his team exceeded our expectations.

In a world where customer service is dead, Bill’s team restored my faith in what it means to understand your customer.

I was at a standstill with my new blog and needed that extra push to make it a success! Bill Ross at Linchpin SEO was my savior! He listened to what I wanted, knew exactly what I needed and helped to launch the blog to the next level.

In a world where customer service is dead, Bill and his team restored my faith in what it means to love what you do and to really understand your customer.

Bill cares about his work and holds himself to a very high standard.

I worked with Bill for several years and was always impressed with his technical know-how combined with his easy-going style. He is smart and very, very hard working. Bill is driven and knows what he wants to do. He cares about his work and holds himself to a very high standard.

You can tell Bill really cares about his clients and about producing a good product.

In helping us launch our blog, Bill was strategic about the overall vision but also tactical enough to suggest small enhancements, spending extra time to find solutions that fit our needs and worked within specific guidelines.

You can tell he really cares about his clients and about producing a good product — he was extremely responsive and proactive every step of the way.

Peter Diamond

Diamond Consulting

Bill is smart, helpful, easy to work with and very knowledgeable about SEO.

Bill came highly recommended as someone who really knows his craft and is trustworthy, two characteristics that can be elusive in his field. Bill was instrumental in helping me refashion my website by using a three-part approach: audit of my existing website and key competitors, re-platform my site to increase its functionality and visibility and worked with me to develop an enhanced blog strategy.

Bill is smart, helpful, easy to work with and very knowledgeable about SEO.

Jason Dole

VP of Technology, World Book

I would recommend Bill to anybody trying to solve the complex world of SEO.

I have worked with Bill on many different projects for SEO. They ranged from sites that have over a hundred fifty million articles too much smaller sites. His custom and personalized approach to SEO is why I keep working with him. He understands each project is different and provides custom solutions based on what objectives the customer is thriving for. Most agencies treat the situation as a one size fits all so his approach is unique.

I would recommend Bill to anybody trying to solve the complex world of SEO.

Bill was great to work with, and a very knowledgeable SEO expert. I learned a lot about strategy from Bill, but two things set him apart:

Bill’s input was invaluable to our project success.

Bill’s deep understanding of SEO best practices and their relationship to content strategy ensured we had sound recommendations for clients as well as internal case studies to promote both practices within the company.
