What Exactly I Do

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

I focus my programming talents and creativity on Oakland, California SEO and web development, where I specialize in creating websites and making sure people see them while they’re browsing on Google or other search engines. The typical projects I take on involve making customized sites, either adding to existing ones or creating new ones, and revising the copy and content so the site is ranked higher when searched for using specified keywords.

I also work with other professionals I trust who specialize in the areas of app development, email marketing, and other web-based services that aid in the SEO process. (I can refer you if you like. I just handle SEO alone so I can remain focused on doing a great job for my clients.)

My early years and how I got started.

Oakland SEO
I lived in Golden Valley, Arizona as a child, which is a small town two hours from Las Vegas. We moved there when I was young due to some health issues I had as a baby. The move actually worked out quite well for me. I ended up being home schooled, as the closest school was in Kingman – quite a drive for my parents to be making every day.

Home schooling allowed me to specialize my studies, and focus on programming, ton which I was naturally drawn. This type of work really made sense to me, and I broke out as a programmer at 12 years old when I created a basic computer calculator from scratch using basic code and programming languages.


Where my love of being a nerd came from.

If I wasn’t writing programs from scratch at this point, I was digging through the code of my computer games looking for secrets. If I got bored with that, I would start designing customized MySpace pages for my friends. I was always looking for the next new way to apply what I had learned, and continue to develop my programming skills through various methods. My first major career move in programming was when I turned 20 and designed a host of sites that generated ad revenue. I was on my way to making money on the web!
About this time, I had toyed around with the idea of starting my own programming and Oakland SEO business, but it wasn’t official until I took my first client in 2007 and created Joseph Stevenson SEO Consulting. My family tradition aided a bit in this decision, as I had two brothers who were also working in the tech industry. Since then. I continue to take a personal approach to the business, contrary to the big firms that dominate the industry, and focus on providing professional quality work while developing mutual trust and respect with my clients.


I believe business should be earned, not expected.

This personal approach not only serves me well, but works out for my clients as they don’t have to stress about contending with some of the shady practices in the Oakland SEO business. One of the major tricks is for another SEO company to have the client sign a large contract with them, promising a major rise in search engine results – all at a discounted price. To finish projects quickly and churn through deals faster, they trap customers with these contracts then outsource the work to smaller agencies. Their clients end up paying more, and not even knowing who is completing their project.

I don’t operate like that. I own a small business that focuses on building relationships, completing quality work, and making money. I make sure I provide exceptional value for my clients and go out of my way to develop trust and respect with everyone involved. This allows me to stay on top of any issues that come up, and work together to make sure that I deliver a product that will work specifically for you. I know I appreciate a “personal touch” and that’s what I provide. It’s rare in the Oakland SEO business.

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

Within the Oakland SEO market, another way we differ from other SEO firms is in the proven process that we’ve developed over the last 12 years. We stick to it religiously. Other firms will try to shortcut the SEO process, resulting in shoddy blogs and annoying links that end up doing more harm than good in the long run.

We take the time to do things right the first time. We lay the groundwork necessary to produce SEO. What we’re looking for is to increase the qualified prospects that visit your site and the number of prospects who become customers. More web traffic translates to more sales.

Here is how we do things:

1. Website optimization: Instead of just firing away before we prepare, we take a look at your site and give it a boost where it needs it. Usually this means re-working the back end of the site, or rewriting web copy with keywords designed to be picked up by search engines much easier.

2. Content creation/promotion: This is what actually drives traffic to your site and increases its ranking. Ranking is determined by views and Internet buzz. We want people visiting, discussing, and sharing your content. During this step, we create that content, and then promote it both on and off your site through various marketing and social media channels.

3. Repeat #2 again and again.

Any “quick fix” or “industry tricks” promoted by other Oakland SEO companies are just that, tricks. As I stated earlier, I don’t trick or shortcut my clients. We operate transparently, which makes us the best choice among all of the Oakland SEO firms you may be considering.
