SEO & Development Services

SEO Focused Web Design

A well designed site draws users in and invites them to explore your services, products or content. The same strategy applies to SEO – we want to prevent users from returning back to the search results, whether they land on your homepage, product page or your blog.

Interestingly enough most SEO visits will start on your blog or service pages, which is why we pay special attention to users’ research journeys, and incorporate them into our design. Afterwards our development approach stresses fast loading times, security and easy website management.

SEO Content Marketing

A strong content library is a great long term investment for brands looking to establish a hold on search results in their field. But due to the compeittive nature of the landscape, content marketing only works if the content is well researched, well written and optimized for conversion. Our SEO managers hire unique subject matter experts for each brand, to help craft unique, educational & engaging content that will make your brand an industry thought leader.

Analytics & Dashboard Setup

Accurate analytics help us test & optimize our clients’ campaigns. We set up custom systems to track a variety of primary & secondary metrics, and use this data to help us adjust our conversion and SEO strategies. Our clients receive a custom analytics dashboard that reflects statistics unique to their business and are auto-updated daily.

Common SEO Questions

  • How much do SEO services cost in San Jose?

    SEO services vary from agency to agency, and depending on their services. Some agencies specialize in linkbuilding while others focus on technical optimizations, all this will impact pricing. We offer full service SEO in San Jose – which includes: linkbuilding, technical optimizations and content marketing, and our retainers start at $3,000.

  • How do you work with business in San Jose?

    A big part of our team is global, and for a time we had an office downtown San Jose, but as the world moved to remote work we no longer keep it.

    However – we’re happy to travel to meet in person, and set up time for collaborative work sessions with your team.

    I believe in a personal touch and I think face to face meetings can improve relationships, processes and help us reach your SEO goals faster.

    For clients that are unable to meet in person, we’re happy to work through video calls or by phone.

  • What industries do you work with?

    We work with a variety of industries, but primarily focus on B2B services and national saas companies – our solutions are always custom tailored to our client’s needs, therefore each SEO strategy is a unique campaign designed specifically for your brand and your customers.

  • Do you also help with web design & development?

    Yes! If we recommend it – we can implement it. We believe it’s not enough to submit an audit and point out a site’s shortcomings. We take the extra steps to follow through on our recommendations and implement them from a technical & design point of view. This allows us to execute our strategy from conception to delivery when working with WordPress sites.

  • Do you offer SEO penalty recovery services?

    Yes. Our penalty recovery process focuses primarily on technical SEO issues. Generally what most people view as “penalties” are actually results of a poor website redesign or domain migration.

    Our technical team will dig under the hood of your website and identify any issues facing crawlers – whether it’s poor linking, javascript indexation, DNS issues and more.

    We’re happy to work with teams in San Jose to help them diagnose these issues, apply fixes and track recovery.

  • How do you approach linkbuilding?

    We’ve spent years perfecting our link building approach, we tested multiple vendors and eventually settled on our own in-house process that focuses on page level linkbuilding.

    We place links on pages that already rank in Google, this allows for quicker indexation and strong ranking signals than domain based linkbuilding that focuses on misleading domain rank stats.

    Ever since the Penguin 2.0 update  in 2012 – Google has shifted focus from penalizing links, to de-valuing them, the result is while businesses might not be penalized – they could be wasting thousands of dollars in linkbuilding costs that do nothing to benefit their website.
