Case Studies from Our Sacramento SEO Company

Rick is the President of an industrial supply company in Sacramento. When we started working together, his website had yet to rank in the top 10 pages in Google or generate any leads. Today, they are on page 1 and 2 for 95% of their competitive search terms, and they get qualified leads every single day from organic Google search.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to SEO questions you might have.

How much does SEO typically cost?

While many SEO agencies have pre-defined “packages” at specified price points, we put together custom SEO campaigns for each client with specific scopes of work, price points, and durations. This helps solve the exact issues you are having, without wasting your budget on unnecessary tasks or “filler” line items.

What is included in your SEO packages?

We put together a custom SEO package for each client. Things that may be included in your custom package may include: content creation, web design and development, link building, social media profile creation, local citation building, review generation strategy, on page optimization, off page brand building.

Will I have to sign a long-term contract?

Your initial custom SEO campaign will be a monthly contract for a specific amount each month, for a set amount of time. The typical SEO campaign usually runs between 3 and 9 months, depending on how much work you need to see improvement. After the initial SEO campaign is complete, you can go month-to-month, usually for a lower amount and reduced scope of work.

What type of work will you be doing on my website?

Tasks that may be required on your website usually include: content creation, on page optimization, structured data creation, title and meta description optimization, custom web design and development, internal link building.

How will you measure success in my SEO campaign?

There are three main ways we measure SEO improvement: rankings for your selected keywords, organic traffic from Google & Bing, and most importantly, how many leads are being generated. We measure your rankings using SEO rank tracking software. Also, we look at your organic search traffic using Google Analytics – meaning we measure how much additional traffic you get strictly from organic (not pay per click) search. Lastly, we measure how many leads are coming into your site from contact forms and calls. At the end of day, the only measure of success that matters is sales revenue.

Will I receive regular reports on my current rankings?

We send you an update on the rankings for your selected keywords every two weeks.

How long does it take to see ranking changes in Google?

You should see improvement within three months for less competitive keyword phrases. For highly competitive keyword phrases, it usually take longer to see substantial movement.

Do you have referrals from past SEO clients?

We have a Case Studies page with several clients who have had great success with SEO. We’d be happy to make an introduction to past clients if you want to hear their testimony in person.

Who will be doing the work on my site?

John Locke will be overseeing the work for your SEO campaign. We may use our network of trusted contractors for larger or more complex projects. We will tell you every person that is involved with your SEO campaign and what role they are playing.

Are the SEO techniques you use “white hat”?

We only use SEO techniques that are approved by Google’s communications. We do not use “black hat” techniques that put your rankings at risk, and we shun any SEO tactics that can incur a manual penalty from the Google Web Spam team.

Will I have to provide content for my site?

For most industries, we will help you create content as part of our SEO retainer. That said, the more content you can create internally, the more powerful our joint SEO efforts will be. For certain industries, like health care or attorneys, you will have to provide your own content. We will let you know if your industry falls into this category before we send a proposal.

What if I don’t have a lot of money for SEO?

SEO requires a certain amount of resources for content creation, design, web development, and brand promotion. If your budget falls beneath our threshold, we will refer you to other consultants or resources that provide help in your budget range. You can also subscribe to our email newsletter and daily YouTube channel for free if you want to do-it-yourself.

Do you serve clients outside of the Sacramento area?

Yes. We have served clients in six different time zones, and we currently have clients all over the United States.
