A little SEO can go a long way

Sometimes it doesn’t take much to drastically improve your ranking in Google.  One of our clients had been tracking their stats since late March and getting a pretty consistent 2-5 visitors/week coming from Google.  A few weeks after we launched their new site, we took a look at the numbers — see for yourself:


After the site launched, traffic from the search engines immediately started going up.  The first week they saw 35 search engine visitors, then 85, then 146!  I expect it will get a bit higher before it starts to level off.

Here’s the key — it wasn’t anything mind-blowing.  They added some new content, but it was mostly just simple things like cleaning up their navigation, fixing the title and header tags, properly linking pages to one another, etc.  Quality SEO isn’t a magic trick; it’s just doing a lot of little things the right way.

We work hard to help our clients rank well in the search engines because that is free traffic. Even better, a properly constructed site can bring in a lot of long tail traffic, which is simply gold.  We put a lot of effort into helping our clients rank well, and the results speak for themselves.  That’s a big reason we don’t put our link on your site.  It’s your site and we want to make sure we help you maximize your exposure.

We certainly can’t promise these kinds of results for everyone, but we can almost always make it better.  Here are a few more examples:

This blog had been around for a while, and the author writes excellent content almost every day.  However, she just wasn’t gaining much traction.  With our help, she went from about 65 search engine visitors/week to almost 600 over the course of a few months!


This is a content site that was in pretty good shape, but our tweaks helped it go from 78 to 225/week in just a few months.


By working hard to stay on top of the latest changes in the search engine algorithms, and by always putting our clients first, the charts that come after the fact are always fun to look at. 🙂
