Scared of you picking their work apart, scared of you firing them and doing it yourself or worse, giving their super secret formula for success to a competitor. Because of this most SEO providers operate with zero transparency which is why when […]
One thing we learned very early on in our business, is that for clients in large cities who are in a competitive legal area of practice (and let’s face it, there are very few that aren’t competitive), it’s very difficult to get 1st page rankings. You need to do everything correctly from building the correct link profile, to the proper on page optimization and a steady flow of high quality content and even then there’s no guarantee of a desired result.

Prior to hiring Stephen to manage my SEO, my Google placement was more than lackluster. Within a few weeks of bringing Stephen on board, my placement started to skyrocket.
