What Exactly I Do

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

In some fields, being a Jack of All Trades is a positive. Not so much with SEO. Being a SEO expert here in Long Beach takes focus. It takes keeping my eye on your website, making the necessary changes to it, adding great content often, and studying the analytics along the way. Long Beach, California entrepreneurs pay me to get them to the top of the search engines, and I deliver.

The programming itself is pretty technical, however, in approaching your SEO, I like to keep things simple. So if you’re looking for a “full-service” digital marketing agency that will work on your email marketing, PPC advertising, apps and the like, that’s not me. I can refer you to specialists in those areas, but to be clear.. web development and SEO is what I do well.

You’ve learned a little about me. Let’s talk about your needs:

My early years and how I got started.

Long Beach SEO
It seems programming is in my blood; being able to manipulate code seems to run in my family.
I grew up in the desert – in Golden Valley, Arizona, a small town about two hours from Las Vegas, NV. My parents relocated us to Golden Valley when I was young because the climate in Washington State was just too humid for me to breathe properly.

They also decided to home school me and my brothers since the nearest school was in Kingman, AZ, about half an hour away. My parents went out of their way to teach us all the basics but also all of their favorite subjects. So, I learned to program when I was in elementary school, learning GW Basic and other computer languages. By 12, I had designed my first computer program.


Where my love of being a nerd came from.

When I entered middle school, I turned my attention to computer games. I began studying how they worked, looking for all of the secret codes. I also designed adventures and story-based games. By this time, businesses were starting to create a presence on the web. Remember the MySpace craze? I do. Early on, I was programming my friends’ pages, customizing each one. In my early twenties is when I started making my living from the web.

I was building and marketing affiliate sites of my own, and in 2007, began designing effective websites for clients.

I became a student of what was evolving on the web; one of the most significant developments was the introduction of search engines, like Google. Soon, these sites were controlling which computer users were seeing and visiting which websites, and SEO was born. As you can see, my ability to figure out how to accomplish online objectives grew out of those early years in Golden Valley. As Joseph Stevenson (a Long Beach SEO Firm), I compete against other Long Beach SEO firms. I find it’s important for me to communicate how my SEO approach works, and why it never fails to get my clients to the top of the search engines.


I believe business should be earned, not expected.

Arthur Ashe, the famous tennis player, once remarked: “Trust must be earned, and it should come only after the passage of time.” I wholeheartedly agree. This is perhaps especially true in the SEO business. I will let you know that many SEO firms will sell you a good line, get your money (usually through a large retainer or long-term contract), and then outsource a lot of the work once you say “yes.” That’s not the way trustworthy business people operate, and it’s certainty not my way. I will go that extra mile, and get the job right the first time to earn your trust… and then work hard to maintain the trust between us.

On the web today, if someone well-qualified is not applying proven SEO principles on a ongoing basis, your website doesn’t have a chance to reach the top of the search engines. That’s just a reality of marketing and sales in our time. You must have enough high-quality copy on your site (and picked up by other sites on the web) for the search engines to index those words, and then “serve them up” to prospects who are looking for what you have to offer. It’s a methodical process, for sure, but I believe creativity plays a big role, too. I won’t claim that I am THE best SEO firm in Long Beach, CA, but I know the superior quality of my SEO work speaks for itself.

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

The other thing I’ve observed is that the quality of the SEO work by other firms in Long Beach is often shoddy. Many competing firms post a lot of copy right when you hire them looking for an early surge in search engine results. In contrast, what I provide a long-lasting solution. Here’s the difference: More often than not other firms take shortcuts and try to rush the process so they can go sign other clients and get more money. Instead, we “stick with the program,” and over time, the SEO work we do begin to show up in your bottom line in the form of more leads and more sales.

Don’t’ let someone tell you that there are special “secrets” to SEO. Not true. What is crucial is having someone who knows what he’s doing, who is dedicated to applying a tried and true SEO process that gets results. My 3-step process includes:

1. Before we start driving more traffic to your website, it needs to look presentable. It also needs to operate efficiently – from the back-end code… to the way you create a sales funnel on your site. This assessment and making the necessary improvements are Step 1.

2. Step 2 is when we start adding the type of content that will get noticed by other people on the web and by the search engines. This includes key-word specific blogs, press releases, and social media post. The content must be well-written; it also must be distributed strategically.

3. The final and third step is simple and difficult at the same time. It involves creating, posting and sharing high-quality content repeatedly – and regularly.
