SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Search engine optimization (SEO) for serious businesses and professionals. SEO is a digital marketing method that helps you rank higher on search engines. Everyone talks about wanting to be #1 on Google, and yes, it is possible! As an SEO specialist, I have conquered many keywords for my clients using ethical and transparent tactics and strategies. Continue reading for a easy-to-understand introduction to SEO.

SEO is not just about keywords.

It’s about intention. It’s about giving the user exactly what they want. Does your website give them that? Is it easy to find exactly what they want once they land on your website?

Google has expanded their algorithm to include much more than just keywords. Now, websites must not only give the user what they are searching for, but also encourage the user to take action.

Get More Customer Reviews on Google, Yelp and Facebook

We’ve all been asked to write a review for a product or service, but do you know why? Why do companies try so hard to get your valuable, positive review? Reviews are  one of the most powerful signals that convinces Google your business provides quality service and satisfies customers.

The more online reviews you have, the more Google and other search engines will see your presence. Platforms like Google Maps, Yelp and Facebook all count towards your SEO value. Getting satisfied customers to leave reviews on these sites can substantially increase your ranking and visibility on Google. When you hire me to help with your SEO, I’ll ensure that getting more reviews is part of the plan.

Your site needs to be fast.

SEO is also not only about making your website 1) easy for Google to read, 2) work intuitively and 3) give the user what they want. It also has to be fast – faster than your competitor’s sites.

When you engage me to work on your SEO, I’ll do everything I can to increase your PageSpeed score, which helps you rank higher on Google. Plus, who likes slow loading web pages? There’s no excuse!

SEO is an art and science.

I use a white-hat, transparent & ethical SEO strategy. Beyond on-page and technical SEO techniques, I can also employ keyword research, content marketing, blog publishing and link-building to boost your ranking on search engine results pages (SERPs.) My goal is to have your web pages appear as a top search result for all relevant keywords or search queries! SEO should be an important part of your online marketing strategy.

It is basically the Semantic Web; “… an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation.” –Berners-Lee et al, W3.org.

We are giving meaning to your web pages so that Google knows when and where to show your content (people searching for your keywords!)

So why should you work with me?

There are tons of SEO gurus, experts and strategists. However, you shouldn’t hire an SEO that simply knows what works. You should hire a specialist that is always forging ahead. I am constantly reading, learning and applying what I learn to help my clients get better results from their search engine marketing investments.

More Info About Our SEO Practices

SEO vs PPC

Unlike PPC (Pay-Per-Click ads) through SEO, the best providers bid not with money but with the quality and relevance of their content. Google then picks the most relevant provider (the most optimized web pages) and serves them to the customer in a search result.

The first page of Google is where the best solution providers are and that’s why we all want to be there. That’s what this Brooklyn SEO expert can do for your company. We help you create the most optimized web pages so that Google picks your website to show to the customer first.

It’s an ongoing process with unbelievable rewards for those who play the long game. Unlike PPC ad campaigns, SEO campaigns drive traffic to your website long after you’ve done the work. With PPC ads, your traffic stops the moment you stop paying to show up on Google.

PPC is less of a long term investment and more of a traditional ad campaign. While there is a place for PPC, if you want a better return on your marketing dollars, allocate more of your budget to a search engine optimization / search marketing campaign. You won’t regret it.

SEO is an Investment

It’s not super quick, and it’s not considered cheap. It does, however, deliver one of the highest ROIs of any digital marketing service. You should expect to commit to 3-6 months and the very least. One to two years is even more appropriate, if you are serious about leveraging Google search to get sales. This is an investment. Investment inherently means (usually) a substantial amount of money invested to yield exponential results over time.

You should anticipate spending a decent percentage of your monthly budget on SEO. A lot of the tasks involved with an SEO campaign will produce content that can be used elsewhere, like social media and newsletters.

What to Look For in an SEO Agency / Expert

When looking for an SEO agency or expert, business owners have countless options available; especially in Brooklyn. After all, it is a hot bed for innovation. That’s why I am proud to offer my innovative search engine optimization marketing services to Brooklyn and the world.

There’s no big secret to how SEO works. Since most search engines don’t publicly release their algorithms, SEO is all about trial and error. Since we’ve had a few years now to experiment, agreat Brooklyn SEO expert know what works and what doesn’t. Read how to hire an SEO professional on WikiHow.

SEO is About Answering Questions

And answering queries. It’s how Alexa and Siri work. If there weren’t great SEO experts working on Wikipedia, IMDB, Amazon, etc., there would be no way for AI platforms like those to find the right data. SEO is about giving the people what they want, and we all want something now and again. Search engine optimization has allowed for call and response in the marketplace. Basically, when a customer performs a search on Google they are calling out for what they want – they are asking the market for a solution to their problem or need.

Through SEO, the best providers bid not with money but with the quality and relevance of their content. Google then picks the most relevant provider (the most optimized web pages) and serves them to the customer in a search result. The first page of Google is where the best solution providers are and that’s why we all want to be there. That’s what this Brooklyn SEO expert can do for your company. We help you create the most optimized web pages so that Google picks your website to show to the customer first.

Why You Need to Hire a Local SEO Expert for Your Business

You have the opportunity to get a head start on your local competition. Right now you can take advantage of a new marketing platform – I mean right now! Not everyone has caught on to the power of local SEO. It’s only been about ten years since SEO has entered the conversation as a major player is business marketing strategies. That’s fairly new when compared to traditional marketing platforms and even websites in general.

Local Search Engine Optimization is crucial for all businesses that want major market share, but especially for business in highly competitive industries. We’re talking legal professions, insurance, business services, finance and more. If you want your business to stand out against competitors, you need SEO because sooner or later everyone will be doing it. Why not start now?

Reach Users in Your Area

​When I begin a local SEO marketing campaign, I’ll do an audit of your existing web presence. There are so many hyper local listings and directories – if you aren’t taking advantage of all of them, your website is suffering! Maintaining an optimized presence on websites like yelp and Facebook greatly increases your exposure to search engines and customers looking for your services.

I’ll update and optimize the listings that you already have so they are more search engine friendly. We’ll discuss where else we can list your business to boost your overall local SEO health. Hiring an experienced local SEO expert can help you prove to search engines that your business is in a consistent location. This helps your business will show up on Google Maps and in location-based searches.

SEO Foundations

Here’s a brief introduction to some of the aspects involved in building a successful SEO campaign.

Content On The Page

20%

If a user is searching for “tennis shoes” they will be looking for a search result that sounds the most related to what they are searching for. If they click on a page that says “Tennis Shoes” but then only one or two tennis shoes are displayed, surrounded by a bunch of boots or other products, they will leave your site and try another search result (your competitor’s website!)

The content on your web pages also must be meticulously written and tagged with consistent words and phrases that support the keyword you want to rank for. Images, headings, text and buttons all must work together. I will do everything I can to keep users on your website until they convert. A conversion is when a user fills out a form, calls your phone number, subscribes to a newsletter or makes a purchase.

User Interface

40%

Designing your website to be easy to navigate and find what they’re looking for. If users spend more than a few seconds on your site without finding what they want they will “bounce” (leave your website, head back to the Google search results page and head to your competitor’s website.

An experienced SEO person will design your website with clear navigation controls like menus, arrows, and buttons. Colors should be consistent and easy on the eyes.

User Experience

60%

It is crucial to build web pages that offer very specific information surrounding one keyword. Those pages should be organized in a hierarchy that makes sense to the Google robots that crawl the internet every day.

Creating a thoughtful and logical architecture of web pages with broad topics at the top and specific topics below is the only way to rank on page 1 of Google. I will ensure that the user experience of your website is up to web standards so you capture all potential leads!

Link Building

80%

Simply put, getting other popular and relevant websites to point links back to your web pages is crucial to building your website’s SEO power. As an SEO expert I can help you achieve this through ethical, organic and paid methods.

Some methods of link building are guest blogging on authoritative websites, securing listings on directory websites, taking out ads that allow you to link back to your website, and simply generating great content that others want to share on their own website.

Domain Name

100%

Having your most general keyword in the domain of your website is a great (but not required) foundation for SEO. Some of the sites I have worked on include learnfrenchbrooklyn.com, buyweedbrooklyn.com, douglassrecording.com – all which have keywords in their domain name.

It is also important to keep your domain sub-pages clean and relevant. Sometimes you’ll see websites with messy URLs – that is not helpful to Google. You’ll want to use keywords and simple words for your sub-pages. Check out this article on domain names and SEO.

Ankora Imparo.

It means “I am still learning” in Latin. It’s an important philosophy to follow when working in search engine optimization. As such a young media platform, it is ever-changing and growing. There is no end to improving search engine optimization (SEO) strategies.

SEO Keyword Successes

I have a deep understanding and application of SEO, search engine optimization. Sometimes a website can look really good, but be difficult for Google’s robots to understand. This means it doesn’t show up when people search for related keywords on Google. Which means money and traffic is being left on the table! I apply SEO standards to every site we build. Here are some examples of my latest successes.

DouglassRecording.com

When I first renovated their site, they were in the middle/bottom of page two. One month after launch, they are at the bottom of page one. I have high hopes to break into the top 5 for “recording studio in brooklyn” and similar semantic keywords.

BuyWeedBrooklyn.com

Despite the political nature of this website, this is my #1 SEO success. With the legalization of marijuana looming for New York State, I saw an opportunity. The market is going to ask where to buy weed once it becomes legal. I just decided to get a head start.

With zero start up cost except our SEO knowledge, I was able to rank on the top of virtually all brooklyn weed related keywords. Give it a try! (by the way, this website is for sale!)

  • buy weed brooklyn
  • weed in brooklyn
  • where to get weed in brooklyn

Learn French Brooklyn

While this client has changed their website since I built it, I succeeded in getting them into the #1 slot for the keyword “learn french brooklyn” and related. This exposure on Google helped launched their company from zero to fully operational. My SEO skills helped drive traffic to the site, and our website design and focus on conversions helped turn more visitors into leads. More leads means more potential for sales.

  • learn french brooklyn
  • french classes brooklyn
  • french for kids brooklyn

My flagship website project. We only launch in November 2019 but are already climbing up the ranks for NYC-based searches like:

  • psychotherapist
  • Manhattan psychothearpy
  • psychopharmacology nyc

OnAirMastering.com

I have a master engineer friend (well, a few!) but Julian as On Air Mastering was my go-to guy while I was living in Brooklyn. He always hooked me up so I wanted to return the favor and help get him more clients. He had moved to Portland, OR so I said let me work on your website to help you rank for portland mastering keywords. He has climbed from page 3 to mid-bottom of page 1!

FTKny.com

I built this site from the ground up, starting in 2013. Over the course of many years I was able to successfully position this website on page one for multiple keywords. I have since ended my engagement with this client, so rankings have fallen a bit, but at the height of our work, they were ranking on page one for highly competitive keywords like
