What Exactly I Do

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

I’m a SEO expert and top website programmer in the Durham, North Carolina area. SEO is all I do because I want to give my best to my clients. The SEO process that’s capable of getting a website to rise in the search engines’ rankings is not all that complicated, but it has many moving parts. Work must be done daily, and that work must be consistent and of the highest quality to achieve optimal results. (If you need other digital marketing tasks done, like building an app or managing an email marketing campaign, we’ll leave that to the professionals that specialize in those areas… I can refer you, if you like.

My early years and how I got started.

Durham SEO
I’ve been programming more than 20 years. I bring my exceptional programming expertise to the table each time I take on a SEO client. It all began when my parents decided to homeschool me and pass on their love of programming and coding to me and my brothers. Because of some health issues I had when we lived in Washington State, my parents moved us to Golden Valley, AZ, a tiny town out in the desert, about 45 minutes from Kingman, Arizona, and two hours from Vegas.

The nearest elementary and middle schools were in Kingman and there was just no way my parents wanted to spend so much time each week making that commute. Homeschooling presented me with the opportunity to learn GW Basic and other programming languages while still a boy. By the time I was just 12 years old, I had created a computer program from scratch – a simple calculator. I loved creating something from nothing!


Where my love of being a nerd came from.

As I grew, my programming skills grew. And soon, I turned my attention to the web. During my teens, I experimented with everything that had to do with computers. I studied the code of the computer games I was playing and even wrote a few adventure computer games of my own, you know, when the players can make decisions along the way and affect the outcome of the game in a myriad of ways. AO also learned about web interfaces when I started improving my friends’ MySpace pages and later, started developing affiliate marketing websites to make some money of my own.
Around 20 years old, word of my websites had spread, and I had quite a few friends and associates that had businesses and needed good looking, efficient websites that could add to their bottom line. Joseph Stevenson (a Durham SEO Firm) was the answer; I opened my doors to paying clients in 2007. The last 12 years have been a wonderful as I’ve perfected the SEO process I use and enjoy the string business relationship I’ve built with my SEO clients.


I believe business should be earned, not expected.

I truly can’t say that my firm is the only SEO company in Durham that knows how to achieve SEO results and has the track record to prove it, but I do know we are one of the very best – and the most honest, too. You know, trust must be earned one day at a time. As I keep my promises to my clients and I keep the SEO schedule we’ve agreed upon moving forward, I earn their trust and respect. I see it as a privilege that you trust me to help you grow your traffic and sales online. I won’t disappoint.

Some of the other SEO firms in Durham, though, are not an open book. For example, many of my competitors will try and convince you to sign an annual SEO contract with them with the intention to go bid the work out afterwards so they can hire a cheaper firm to do your work and pocket the difference. From the start, your interests are not being protected… and the deception has begun. (I’ve seen this happen firsthand, and most of time, their clients are none the wiser about what’s really going on.) This is something I’ll never do. I do the work myself and I do it right the first time.

Durham SEO


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

That brings me to the subject of quality. Many SEO firms in Durham will make every attempt to get your website and your SEO completed as soon as possible, so they can move on. Typically, they will load dozens of pieces of content on your site and out on the web, really without a plan, and along with a some back links, will tell you that’s what it takes to get you to the top of Google and other major search engines. (When you see a possible temporary rise in your rankings, you may be fooled.)

On the other hand, the 3-step SEO plan I’ve created over the last 12 years, puts into place the ground floor of your SEO Plan, making it easier to build from there:

Step #1 – Assess your current site and make improvements in the coding, content, and sales process;

Step #2 – Crete and post new, high-quality content that will be shared all over the web and indexed and served up to your best prospects by the search engines (blogs, media releases, social media posts); and

Step #3 – Keep doing Step #2 to maintain your high rankings in the keywords we identified together.

Unlike other firms, we don’t take shortcuts and what we create for you is always first-rate. After all, it’s your company’s reputation that’s on the line. We know this and have your back.

I encourage you to ask specific questions when you’re talking with SEO firms in Durham and selecting who you want as your SEO partner. Make them explain exactly what they’ll do and how, and what results you should expect. (If their recommendations vary much from my proven 3-steps above, be cautious in how you proceed.)
