Google examines more than 210 criteria (we call these signals) on your web page to determine where your site will rank. Whenever Google updates its algorithms (about every three months), these signals shift and change. We stay current, know how these changes impact your rankings, and adjust your site so that it ranks higher using the following methodologies:
Search engine optimization (SEO) refers to the family of techniques designed to improve the ranking of a website with search engines. SEO work is often grouped with search engine marketing. The search engine optimization industry can be broken down into two camps or methods: “white hat SEO” (techniques approved by search engines such as growing content and improving site quality) and “black hat SEO” (tricks such as directory spamming and cloaking). White hatters (like ourselves) believe in using only publicly approved techniques to ensure that their clients are never blacklisted by search engines; while black hatters believe that SEO is an attempt to manipulate rankings, and that the particular techniques one uses to rank well are irrelevant. We never use clandestine, “black-hat” techniques that may yield quick results but in the end will likely impact your rankings negatively.
"After our first brief meeting... we made a series of changes to my web site that quickly put us number one in Google searches for my desired search criteria."
"Blake has an unbelievable grasp on what is going on in the SEO world and how to make that work for you. My website went from being practically invisible to number two in the first week."
"It’s now several months after we finished and of the 11 search phrases I wanted to optimize my site for, nine are on page one of Google, and of those, six are number one. I’m so pleased and am happy to recommend [Blake's] services."
"All but one of our phrases weren't showing up in the search engines when Blake began work. After just two short months, 12 of them appeared on the first page! As a result, our web inquiries... have increased dramatically. I couldn't be more pleased."
"...my website has ranked #1 for my search terms through much of my career. The return has far exceeded the investment."
