John is likely the most genuine, honest and reliable person I’ve ever had the pleasure of doing business with. He doesn’t only provide a service, he treats your SEO as if it’s his own. He has a true passion for what he does. His results and the passion and pride he puts into his research is absolutely second to none. Lockedown Design & SEO not only helped us by building our website, but by fine-tuning our SEO. We receive many customers from Google. Thank you for our amazing site and all of your dedicated, hard work.

We came to John with little to no knowledge of what we were looking for — only knowing that we needed to improve traffic to our site. He developed a game plan for us, executed it in the projected time frame and got us terrific results. I would highly recommend him unless you happen to be a competitor of mine in which case, please use someone less effective.

Lockedown Design & SEO made a success out of my business. We’ve had John as our ‘business partner’ here for 3 years now, and he is thorough and fast. He took us out of the darkest corner of the web and literally put this business on the Google map. SEO is everything. It’s well worth whatever it takes. John has been terrific. He responds to issues quickly, and worked overtime to address my many needs. Highly recommended. Great blog too!

John has done and continues to do an amazing, efficient job for us. Much of our business depends on SEO and our website, and Lockedown Design & SEO has been easy to work with, very fair with pricing, and fast. We even had our website crash, and he came to the rescue, and had us back up within an hour. I’m still impressed at the same day service and fast responses to any questions or concerns. Highly recommend!

I would highly recommend John at Lockedown Design & SEO as a knowledgeable, white hat SEO consultant. It’s so important to be careful when choosing a partner for search engine optimization, and I can tell you John is the real deal. He has helped me on several occasions and is always creative, thorough, and very helpful. Do not hesitate to hire Lockedown Design & SEO if you are looking for an SEO company.

Even experts need expert assistance, and that’s why I called John. He helped me rehabilitate my consulting agency’s SEO profile and get us back on the radar in Google searches. His expertise is both deep and current, and was of tremendous help to my business.

I met the business owner, John, at a Chamber of Commerce luncheon and I’m so glad I did. I have been struggling with some SEO issues, Google Plus issues and a few others, for years! We had a phone appointment, he was so thoroughly prepared, and he concisely explained how I can manage those problems and in what order I need to start the process. It really helps to have a starting point and tasks broken down. He emailed the entire process and I will be forever grateful.

After many years of trying unsuccessfully to find a true web design professional to help grow our internet presence, we had pretty much given up. Then by sheer luck, we met John at an event and it was immediately clear how amazing John is both as a person but also as an incredibly, sincere and extremely, knowledgeable professional.

We are eternally grateful the tremendous help and support we have received from John and can wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone needing expert WordPress or SEO services.

John deserves the credit—he is awesome! We have an E-Commerce site and it goes with the territory that we come across technical issues from time to time that can be very nerve racking as a business owner. After I’ve explained the problems or goals, John goes about accomplishing the task quickly and successfully.

Where his professionalism really shines is that he will babysit the changes to make sure everything came out as planned. If any final tweaks are necessary he’s on them immediately. His communication during changes and returning of calls is also 5 stars. John is very responsive to our account, we have grown, but even when we were smaller John still gave us the same attentive service.

I am literally teary-eyed after typing in “winery refrigeration” a moment ago and Hale Winery and Brewery Refrigeration​ is #2 on Google. This is incredible and we owe it all to the expert advice we received from John Locke​ of Lockedown Design​ & SEO two weeks ago. Finally, real, measurable results from a TRUE web design and WordPress expert! We love you, John!

We really enjoyed working with Lockedown Design & SEO. John was very through and kept up with the changes we needed as we worked on the project. Best of all, he didn’t just hand over the website and leave us to our own devices. He trained us and was there for support afterwards. I will definitely keep him and his company in mind for future projects/to recommend to others.

I first met John at one of the local events last year. What struck me the most about him was the amount of charisma and knowledge he possesses. As a budding business owner myself, I learned a great deal from him. He truly cares about his clients’ success and has been very helpful with my situation. Highly recommend!

I was referred to John Locke by the Directors of the Carmichael Chamber of Commerce when she heard me lamenting over the high-priced / low results company I was with for my web site. He is amazing! In less than two weeks he was able to accomplish what the other guys only gave me fits about. Moreover he is reasonably priced and very detailed in his work. That was over nine months ago. since then he has revolutionized my web presence. He also delivers on time – what he promises with great follow-up. It’s obvious he’s in your corner as a business owner. He comes to my office and works through what I don’t understand, studies who we are and what our focused goals are. In short, he is a breath of fresh air in everything from his work ethic, communication skills, through to his professionalism and product delivery! I highly recommend Lockedown Design & SEO.
