What Exactly I Do

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

I’m a professional SEO expert and website developer in the Toledo, Ohio marketplace. The difference between my firm and other SEO companies in Toledo is that I get results for my clients, I’m honest, and I do things right the first time. I keep my eye on the ball by specializing just in SEO. I don’t get into other areas like email marketing or building apps.

This page will acquaint you on what you should be aware of when selecting a good SEO consultant – one that you can trust.
Let’s get the ball rolling, by having a discussion about your SEO needs. Contact me:

My early years and how I got started.

Toledo SEO
My love for programming – and all things tech – began as small child. After living in Washington State and being sick all the time, my parents packed us all up and relocated me and my family to Golden Valley, Arizona (about 2 hours from Las Vegas.) The climate change was just what I needed. When my brothers and I neared school age, my parents look at where the closest school was – in Kingman, Arizona 30 minutes away – and the their decision was clear cut.

They would home school us. And, so began my studies at home. Of course, I learned the basic subjects, but my education went beyond the basics. At 10 and 11 years old, I was learning GW Basic and other programming languages, and at twelve, I was writing computer programs of my own. Little did I know, my course had been set. I was on a journey of discovery.


Where my love of being a nerd came from.

In my teens, I continued learning about programming, discovering what lay behind the computer games I was playing. Command prompts and file directories were my toys; I was learning to use programming to create whatever I wished. I was a coding junkie! When the web became commonplace and people acknowledged it just wasn’t a fad, I began learning about web interfaces, applying my new-found knowledge to customizing my friends’ MySpace pages. Soon after, I developed a few affiliate marketing websites, and made my first dollar from the web. (I was hooked on that, too!)
People were taking notice. Friends and business owners were asking me to use my programming and website development skills to build websites for them. So, in 2007, I hung out my shingle, and started what would become Joseph Stevenson (a Toledo, Ohio SEO Firm). As search engines were launched, including Google, of course, I wanted to discover how to unravel their “mysteries,” as well. Today, after 12 years as a Toledo SEO specialist, I know what works. I know how to nurture the sales process online. And, I’ve developed a 3-step SEO process that’s never failed to get a client’s website to rise in the search engines. My goal for your site is to be #1.


I believe business should be earned, not expected.

Yes, we all want to make money from the web. That’s exactly what I am good at helping companies do. But, that success cannot come in lieu of earning my client’s respect and trust. Trust must be earned. I must make good on what I say I will accomplish. That’s the way to our mutual success. My approach is win-win.

But not all SEO companies in Toledo take a win-win approach. In fact, I’ve seen some practices up close that are not ethical… and you should know about. Many SEO firms in Toledo will insist that you sign a annual contract and then once signed, they’ll make a beeline to outsource your SEO work to a vendor without your knowledge. I suggest you ask about who will do the SEO work when you’re interviewing Toledo SEO companies.

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

While you want to find a honest SEO firm that actually does the SEO work they agreed to deliver, you also want the work to be of the highest quality. At Joseph Stevenson, we get it done right the first time. We’re patient in executing your SEO strategy on a daily basis. That’s the only way to sustain rankings.
Over my 12 years in the SEO business, after studying the search engines and examining the new trends to see if they are worthy of exclusion, I’ve devised the following 3-step Toledo SEO process that we use with every client:

Step One – Look at your current site and improve the coding, content, and sales process as much as possible. We want your site to be looking good and operating efficiently when new prospects land on your site from the search engines.

Step Two – Create and post content that gets noticed – on on site (blogs) and off your site (press releases, social media messages, etc.) This high-quality content gets picked up and shared all over the web, and the search engines index all of that content that’s associated with your firm, and your site moves up in the rankings.

Step Three – Repeat Step #2 – again and again and again…

Some of the other SEO companies in Toledo might try and tell you that there is a quicker way to accomplish long-term results. They might throw up a lot of content on the web and get you some back links early on, and act like their job is done. I encourage you to ask any SEO company in Toledo you’re considering what their process is. If it differs from the above, they are taking short cuts. It will be your reputation on the line.

In contrast, our Toledo clients are satisfied because we keep our word. We do good work. We’re consistent over the long term. Their money is not wasted. Instead, they are seeing financial dividends – that is, increased online sales – from the SEO work we do for them.
