4 Reasons Why You Need to Do SEO Right Now

 Put quite simply:  SEO works. This is a very point blank reason but it's entirely true. As of right now, Google processes roughly three and a half billion (that’s billion, with a ‘B’) searches each and every day.  With those kinds of numbers, it’s tough to argue against that ranking in Google's search results offers a valuable opportunity to get you more visitors to your website. This is very important because an increase in traffic means an increase in opportunities for you to convert visitors into new sales...

What Is Your SEO Company Doing For You?

During my conversations with small business owners, I am often surprised with how often they are unaware of the work being done on their behalf by their SEO companies. A vast majority of business owners understand the importance of having their website rank well for relevant search terms in their industry, but very few of them are able to tell me exactly what work is being done in order to accomplish this. “I’ve got people working on that” is a common claim.
