What Exactly I Do

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

I’m a SEO specialist and web developer that works with businesses in New York. I create websites from the ground up, then make sure they show up in Google. Yahoo, and other search engines. People come to me for custom sites that are optimized using SEO. That’s my specialty.

My career began as a programmer, and then grew from there into the web. Now, I work full-time doing SEO and all that involves. If you are in need of Social Media work, Email Marketing, or App Development, I’d be happy to make an introduction to one of several business associates who focus on those areas. It’s my mission to take care of the people I work with, and I’ve found that the best way to do that is to focus on the areas where I can knock it out of the park. Go Yankess!

My early years and how I got started.

New York SEO
I grew up in Golden Valley which is situated about two hours outside of the Las Vegas metropolis. My parents moved us to Arizona when I was young because I had an unexplained illness that the doctors just couldn’t in Washington State. They thought it somehow caused by humidity, so we moved to one of the hottest, driest locations in the states.

I joined the homeschool revolution due to the fact that Golden Valley didn’t have a middle or high school. It was much so much better than spending hours on a school bus to Kingman each and every day. My parents were great instructors. Part of my studies included working on our old computer, what’s now called a “dinosaur.” Before my 12th birthday, I’d become familiar with GW Basic and other programming languages, and had written my first computer program, what’s known as a basic calculator. That was my first programming feat.


Where my love of being a nerd came from.

As I began to sharpen my programming abilities, I began more advanced programs, including games. I enjoyed delving into what made the computer “tick,” and creating adventure games and the like. Not soon after, my work on the web began in earnest, tweaking MySpace pages for some of my friends. Later, as an digital entrepreneur myself, I ran multiple affiliate websites.

During that time in my life, my friends were constantly asking me to build and market their websites for them.

The first website client I worked with was back in 2007. This was the first website I built for a company other than my own. Joseph Stevenson (a New York SEO Firm) was started shortly after.

No real surprise because of our homeschooling days, it turns out that tech work runs in the family, as my brothers work at BP and Adobe. Their influence and experience helped me expand my horizons, tap into my creative side, and begin not just designing great sites for people but also learning how to promote websites effectively. As a New York SEO firm, I focus on the basics, on delivering top-quality work for every client.


I believe business should be earned, not expected.

It’s important for me to make sure I can earn your business, and stand out from other New York SEO companies. Other New York SEO companies usually try to lure customers in through a monthly rate, with yearly contracts that don’t even spell out SEO objectives. A lot of the time, after signing these companies as clients, they hire a cheap service to do the detail work, and become a middle man. I know this, because early in my career I was asked to take on the real work for other firms.

Most New York SEO companies claim to be the best. I guess, that being said, I do consider our firm as one of the premiere SEO firms around… But, I encourage you to do your homework. Take a good hard look at each firm’s track record, look at their portfolio, and ask to see the web analytics to back up a SEO firm’s claims. I’m happy to provide this information – freely. I know my SEO methods are effective, which is all people are looking for at the end of the day.

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

SEO companies usually focus on shuffling through clients, and getting websites completed and out the door. They get you some links and write a few blogs, then move on. I take the opposite approach; I use a methodical process, focusing on quality instead of quantity. You’ll get high-quality SEO completed by a professional and be able to see the results for yourself. No excuses.

A great SEO company makes sure that you get value for your money, which I translate into website ranking. Being transparent, I don’t shy away from revealing my process:

1. Enhance your site to a point where it deserves a high ranking. If I feel that it’s not there yet, I’ll help re-write the site so its up to par.

2. When the content is decent from a SEO perspective, then we turn our attention to creating new copy that will be popular. Of course, a home run is when a piece we develop for you goes viral! This stage takes awhile, but is super important in order for your SEO plan to succeed. Blog posts, social media outreach, and press releases are all part of the mix. Google and other search engines will crawl and index your site quicker if you provide good and new content on a regular basis. Search Engine Algorithms are getting more and more sophisticated as time goes on so providing great unique content on a regular basis is paramount to ranking well.

As you create great content then other sites will talk about you and as you become more popular to everyone else online you will also become more popular to Google.

3. If you post excellent content that connects with your prospects often enough, your rank will start to rise in searches. Most companies in New York do not have the patience – or skills – to do SEO the proper way. So, if a company is touting a SEO strategy that seems like a short cut, it most likely is.
