What Exactly I Do

Doing everything makes you a jack of all trades, master of none.

In the past, a business owner in Detroit might have been able to grow their business on the web without Detroit SEO. Well, times have changed. I’m an experienced SEO professional; I also program and promote websites. I don’t however try to be all things to all people. For example, if a client is looking for email marketing, or to develop an app, or to manage their social media, I refer them to reliable associates of mine.

I keep focused just on SEO and have found that a simple approach is always the most effective approach. I know the steps to take to get your website found when people search for your products and services, and not just any people, but those who we’ve identified together as your most profitable customers.

Let’s work together. Give me a shout in whatever way you prefer:

My early years and how I got started.

Detroit SEO
Had I not had an unexplained illness when I was young and had I not been homeschooled, I may not have a career now as a SEO professional and I may not be the programmer I am today.

Due to my health issues as a young child, my parents moved the family to Golden Valley, Arizona, two hours from the lights of Las Vegas. It was a rural area; the closest town of any size was Kingman, about 45 minutes away from us. It was just too far to drive everyday, so homeschooling was the answer. I, of course, learned the three R’s, but I was also fortunate to learn other non-traditional skills – like programming. When I was a kid, I was coding. I mastered GW Basic and other programming languages and even developed a simple calculator during my grade school years.


Where my love of being a nerd came from.

With the popularity of The Big Bang Theory and the advent of entrepreneurs as the new heroes of commerce, being a nerd now is cool. That wasn’t always the case. But, I didn’t care. My love for all things technology began to grow as I hit adolescence and has never stopped since. My two brothers are the same way. They work in tech, too, at BP and Adobe. I guess all our homeschooling paid off!

I got into programming computer games as teen, of course! From there, I pushed the limits of some of the new programs I was learning, trying my hand at command prompts and becoming thoroughly familiar with directories.

After helping to improve some of my friends’ MySpace pages, I decided to take some time away from programming. When I came back a year later, I was determined to make money online – and I did. Mainly working on affiliate sites and ad revenue generating projects of my own. I guess in 2007 is when I truly became an entrepreneur when I won my first web site client. SEO followed shortly thereafter. My ability to drive traffic to a site by using solid SEO techniques is what distinguished me then. It still does today.


I believe business should be earned, not expected.

SEO is for sure both an art and a science. Every firm does it in a slightly different way. But, looking at who gets results is the point. If a SEO firm in Detroit, or anywhere for that matter, is not upfront about the process they use and what results should be expected, they aren’t your best choice. It seems every SEO company in Detroit makes promises. Only the best keep their promises. Talking with our current clients and asking to look at analytics is a good first step to make sure you’re hiring a honest and effective marketing partner.

And, that’s just what we are. Your partner. We don’t keep secrets about our work. For example, unlike other SEO firms in Detroit we will not have a subcontractor do the detailed work required to drive targeted traffic to your site. Any dollars a company would save by outsourcing is small potatoes as compared with the money – and the trust – lost when a client jumps ship because he or she is not seeing results. We will say that we are among the best SEO firms. We allow our work to speak for itself.

If you don’t do things right, don’t do them at all.

There’s much more to effective SEO than meets the eye. Most SEO firms only touch the surface. What they give you is not lasting and it’s definitely not worth the fees they charge. We want to give you value for your money and something that really works long term. We take it step by step. It may take a little longer, but just know that building a Detroit SEO framework is absolutely essential to achieving the results you seek. We’re SEO experts. What we give you is real; there is no “secret sauce.” Here is the process we utilize to get your website ranked as #1 on major search engines:

1. Our first objective will be to make sure all of the copy you have is excellent and written for the web. It needs to be great copy to be worthy of being ranked as #1. Google’s algorithms know what substantial, informative copy “looks” like. Trying to fool them is not worth the effort – and it’s not ethical. We edit any copy you have, as necessary.

2. Our second objective is creating new copy that will get indexed and picked up by other sites. All of the copy out on the web – with links back to your site – is what starts the “magic.” I create new blog articles to post on your site and new social media posts and press releases to link back to your site. (You approve it all as we work together.)

3. Our third objective is to create an editorial calendar and keep posting new content on a regular basis. It’s the consistency that turns a once mediocre site into a marketing powerhouse. An exceptional Detroit SEO company that serves Detroit businesses, like ours, will only used proven methods to get you ranked well, to maintain that ranking, and to grow it from there. Going backwards is never an option.
