Every company claims to be the best in the biz – SEO firms included. Just like a proud parent who knows beyond a doubt that their child is the smartest, nicest and coolest kid on the planet, us SEOs like to puff up our chest and talk big about how awesome our company is and how we’ve mastered Google in a way that no other company has.
Of course, this tendency to brag isn’t just an SEO or business thing – it’s a human thing.
Regardless, the trick when choosing the right business partner is finding a company with the results and reputation from third-party sources to back up their bold claims.
That’s one of the reasons why myself and the rest of the SEO Advantage team get stoked when we receive a digital pat-on-the-back such as being included on the list of Best SEO Companies & Services of 2017.
Recently, SEO Advantage was one of 13 companies from across the U.S. chosen by Clutch in the case study section of their comprehensive annual report on the top internet marketing companies and agencies across the nation.
SEOA provides “dramatic increases in top rankings, indexed pages, traffic, and pageviews” for our clients
We remember it well – the day Provident Metals knocked on our doors (figuratively speaking).
The startup metals company was trying to gain a foothold in an ultra-competitive market and a cutthroat keyword space. To top it off, they needed immediate ROI from search engine results.
We strategized, signed the initial contract and quickly buckled down to tackle the challenge. This was way back in 2010 – when the top song on the radio was Usher’s “OMG” and Google’s Panda 1.0 update was still wreaking havoc on websites with low-grade content.
As the Clutch case study notes, our key to success in such a competitive landscape has been a content-rich SEO campaign and strategic consulting for the precious metal firm’s in-house team.
Our SEO approach included:
- Stand-alone content portals
- Copywriting and outreach
- On-site SEO: optimization of e-commerce application, backlink building
…to name a few.
“In the 14 months since we partnered with SEO Advantage, our firm has won over 400 page 1 rankings and takes the #1 spot globally for ‘copper bullion’ beating out an impressive 4.8 million competing listings,” says Joe Merrick of Provident Metals.
Thanks Joe! You’re making us blush…
According to Clutch: “SEO services from SEO Advantage resulted in dramatic increases in top rankings, indexed pages, traffic, and pageviews.”
