Yes. Our Chicago SEO firm specializes in all areas of SEO, including content marketing, local SEO strategies, link building and technical support; everything it takes to get conversions to your website. Whether it’s one time SEO consulting audits or ongoing long-term support, we provide a full range of search engine marketing strategies.

Keyword research refers to choosing the right words or phrases describing your business services e.g.: general contractor, immigration attorney or an ethnic restaurant. It’s the most important and often overlooked step, because you have to research and decide which keywords are worth optimizing for.  SEO strategy is crucial. A company has to choose its battles and tactics wisely. There are different tactics for newly opened businesses with no optimization history, and for those who are somewhat established and have been struggling on Google.

On-page refers to content marketing and optimizing a site for the most important search metrics: keywords, density and speed. The right web design technique plays a huge role. While we specialize in all elements of optimization, we believe most SEO companies should prioritize marketing with on-page SEO above everything else. There’s a very good reason for that. This area provides the easiest and quickest wins in terms of acquiring website traffic from Google.

Technical optimization refers to website and hosting server optimizations that help search engines index your website more effectively. Google and Bing give preferential treatment to websites that are properly optimized for technical standards.

No. Unlike other search engine marketing firms, we don’t believe in locking up our clients in long term yearly contracts. We offer flexible monthly packages.

Yes! We are an award-winning SEO company specializing in both SEO and web design white label projects. We partner with a number of bigger SEO agencies. We only use white hat SEO techniques based on solid search engine foundations that help websites rank in search engine rankings. We stay clear of any tactics that resemble black hat tactics. Contact us to discuss more about our services.

SEO Marketing budget depends on your domain history, industry, location and search competition. Search engine optimization in “easy” industries will be more cost-effective.  However if your business needs to rank for a “harder” search phrase in a more competitive industry, your business will need a higher SEO budget. Chicago, IL is one of the toughest cities to rank in search engines nationally.

Local reviews are an important signal for local pack rankings. We use professional tools to analyze your words, density, velocity and freshness. Read more on how Google Reviews help with local SEO.
