Common SEO Questions

How long does SEO take?

SEO is playing the long game. There are “cheat codes” or cookie-cutter approaches that may produce fleeting results, but it’s important to note that Google can and will penalize those who take shortcuts and try to beat the system. Worthwhile SEO builds value over time through strategic approaches.

Can I do both SEO and PPC?

Sure! SEO and pay per click are quite different, and would not interfere with one another if used at the same time. If you are interested, we would be happy to help you with paid advertising as well.

Do just national businesses need SEO?

No matter if you are a large B2B tech company, or a smaller B2C gym franchise, or anything else, we can help. Businesses of all sizes can benefit from SEO and our tactics.

“John was someone who came highly recommended to me for digital marketing and SEO. To my surprise he was easily accessible for a telephone appointment. Although I expected his knowledge of SEO to be far beyond mine (it is), he was also able to speak to me at a level I could understand. He seemed interested in making clear how he could help me and was not overpromising. He seems to be a much more straightforward marketing asset than I am used to dealing with. Thank you, John!” – Brandon Shroy, Attorney at Law
