SEO is a very popular term now but what is it and why does it seem so confusing?
What is SEO (search engine optimization)? There are lots of different ways to describe or define SEO. When I think of SEO, I think of getting your website to show up on the search engine when someone searches for information that is contained in your website without paying Google (Google Ads). There are billions of websites online so to be able to rank on the first page is a statement of your knowledge about the topic and is extremely valuable. I’ve read a lot of books and articles about SEO and the best way that I’ve heard it explained is “doing a lot of small things right on a consistent basis” to increase your website’s organic (non-paid) search results.
It’s not easy and the level of difficulty has a lot to do with the topic, industry, and keywords or search phrases that you are trying to optimize for. For instance, getting ranked for “best SEO companies” will be infinitely more difficult than something like “best frozen yogurt franchises”. It’s never easy but if you take time to do the basic on-page and off-page SEO tasks (coding and website content), you’ll have a good chance of getting results because a lot of people forget about the basics. Unlike paid search advertising, you’ll never know when all of your optimization efforts will pay off. But once you start seeing results from all of your work, it can be very fulfilling.
There are so many digital marketing companies that provide SEO services by extremely talented people, so to be able to get ranked on the first page right next to them is an accomplishment. That is a part of why I enjoy SEO so much. It’s not about winning per se; it’s about being able to compete with the best of the best, especially if it’s a highly competitive industry or phrase. Once you start getting your website good organic search placements, your business will benefit from it and you’ll save yourself a lot of money by not having to pay Google for ads.
Looking for a good SEO company to work with? We’d love to hear from you!
Happy Client Says
I worked in Banking for over 30 years and received recognition for my customer service skills. I find joy in recognizing good service as often as I can. I began working for Caliber almost a year ago as the office manager. One day I was checking out our website and noticed some things that needed updating. I talked to the owners about it and they asked me to contact Young with Blindspot Digital. I got in touch with Young. Although he did not build our original website, Young has vastly improved it! Whenever I send him an email, he responds before I hit SEND! Not really, but a lot of people take a day (or 5) to respond to me. Getting Young’s prompt reply is great because I KNOW he will take care of it AND follow up with me to check it out & he asks for feedback! Plus, I can move on to whatever I need to do. We whole-heartedly recommend Young Chung & Blindspot Digital!
Our company needed a new, updated website which looked unique, organized, interesting and informative. We asked Blindspot because their prices were reasonable compared to other big companies and the owner was very friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and artistic. He gave us advice about how to recreate our website and we used him. Since Mr.Young made our website, our customers increased substantially. He also follows up and is always available to answer any questions. I highly recommend Mr.Young and Blindspot Digital.
I have been working with Blindspot Digital for the last 4 months for my business website and SEO, and I am very satisfied with their performance and effective marketing strategy. Young went above and beyond to explain things, answer all my questions, and as promised they are delivering the results. Young is helpful and always available to assist. I told them in the beginning, based on my past experience with other companies, that I want it to feel like working with an actual person instead of feeling like working with a company that takes forever to answer a single question and makes me to contact everyone in the company for every little thing. With Blindspot Digital, it almost feels like working with my own employee, that’s how closely we work together. I strongly recommend Blindspot Digital for any website and online marketing services. Thank you Blindspot Digital and Young!
We highly recommend Young and Blindspot Digital. When we first started, we didn’t exactly have the best online marketing team on our side and our website and online presence reflected this. A friend of ours strongly recommended we call Young. After one call, we knew this was the team for us. Young listened to our wants and needs and provided us with different options. He doesn’t expect you to come up with how your website should look, or what keywords or phrases you want him to do. We are a small plumbing company that is growing and we need to be focused on our business and the services we provide. We finally feel we will be able to do that with Young and his team. He has truly surpassed our expectations and we could not be happier that we made this decision!! Thank you Young and Blindspot Digital!!
Blindspot Digital has been developing and managing our franchise PPC campaigns for several months. We are very excited about the results we’re seeing, not only in click through rates (consistently above industry average!) and conversions, but in the sheer volume of new users coming to our site from these smart paid searches. Beyond the impressive numbers, Young and his team have been incredibly responsive and flexible. Project turnarounds are always quick and done with a lot of thought. They worked closely and collaboratively with us to understand our tricky targeting challenges, then crafted campaigns that found those needles in the haystack we were looking for. Choosing this digital marketing agency to manage our Google ad campaigns was a total win!
We would highly recommend Young and Blindspot Digital for any of your website needs. We operate a professional pressure washing company and we wanted a website built by a professional web designer, not a cookie cutter site anyone can throw together online. Young was highly recommended from a friend and after one phone conversation with him we knew he was the guy we wanted to work with. During the initial information gathering process he understood exactly what we wanted and went right to work creating our company a website that will convey our professionalism to any potential client looking for a washing company they can trust with their business or home. Young was always accessible and understood any changes we wanted to make, whether photos or verbiage, he quickly made the changes and sent back proofs. We have received so much positive feedback from the site and feel it was a great investment for us at 3 Alarm Pressure Washing to take our business to the next level.
I highly recommend Young and Blindspot Digital. I posted on my Facebook page looking for recommendations on website builders for my new business website which is when an old high school friend reached out to say “I’ve got a guy that did my roofing website and he is awesome. Like literally the best. He’s very very easy to work with and really wants to make sure he gets it right.” And my experience with Young has lived up to that review! Young has taken the extra time for phone calls to be sure he knows exactly what my wants and needs are and has reached and exceeded all of my expectations. Thanks Young and Blindspot Digital!
When I started my business, my web page wasn’t even on the first six pages of Google, and then a friend referred me to Young. The expertise Young has demonstrated with the intricacy of internet marketing has been a breath of fresh air. Starting a business is challenging and being able to have an expert put together an internet marketing ad campaign bringing my website to the front page and driving business to me has been fantastic! I want to work my business, not figure out the burden of internet marketing and that’s where Young’s strength shine. With his knowledge and experience along with his communication skills, we are able to utilize feedback to adjust the marketing plan, listening to what I need as a customer. Young is very specific with marketing my business on the internet to make sure I get the best responses as I watch my business grow!
I have owned and operated an HVAC company for over 30 years. I’ve worked with Blindspot Digital for almost 2 years now with great results and the best service you can get. I get at least 5 calls/emails a day from people saying they can help me with our website, SEO, and Google advertising. And I’ve worked with 4-5 other marketing companies that just took my money without any results so I was very skeptical. Young called me one day and I decided to give him an opportunity. There are not enough good words to describe Mr. Young. He has built us the best looking website, manages our Google advertising, and is now working on SEO which I can finally see is working! He has been there for me 7 days a week to answer all of my questions or if I need anything. You won’t find this level of service anywhere. He is the real deal.
I run a family owned carpet cleaning business and working with Blindspot Digital has truly been a game-changer. I went from averaging 1 or 2 jobs per day to running 4 to 5 jobs and being booked almost a week out. Young is a great guy and he is always helpful when I have a question. Everyone knows Google is the key to growth, but just knowing that vs. taking full advantage of what it can do are two very different things! With Young handling our Google Ads, I know I don’t have to worry that I am being as successful as possible when it comes to my Google campaign.
Excited to be working with Young Chung and Blindspot Digital on our new franchise sales website. When we began first speaking with Young it was regarding him doing some digital marketing for us, but as we discussed things further, it became clear that we needed a more focused website first. He has been such an amazing help to us thus far and I imagine will continue to be! I have never come across someone as authentic, caring, and truly understanding in this space as Young. It is because of him that we will be launching our upgraded site soon with some incredible new franchise offerings.
I am extremely satisfied with Young at Blindspot Digital. Young is highly skilled in conceptualizing and implementing innovative digital marketing initiatives to boost market impact and expansion. He has a deep understanding of various marketing channels and has developed/executed successful marketing campaigns for our company which has had a significant impact on our bottom line. His communication is prompt, professional, and precise. I give Young my strongest recommendation for any of your digital marketing needs.
My company has been working with Young since late last year and we have been very pleased with his innovative ideas, suggestions and his performance. He has brought us new insights into our overall development process and has taken a personal interest in our overall development with our short- and long-term goals to expand our image and presence online. He has been an excellent person to work with and has proven to be a true asset to our system and our franchises. I personally will attest to his follow up on all items and his willingness to go the full mile. I would recommend Blindspot Digital to all that are seeking a person of high integrity and professionalism to work with.
We have been working with Young for over three months now. His dedication, his out-of-the-box thinking, his availability to talk and drive is second to none. He has taken the tasks of starting International pay per click campaigns for us along with National Campaigns and down to the state level. Since working with Young, we have generating more quality leads than all of our other franchise lead generation sources all year. In addition to that, he has taken the time to provide us with extremely valuable insight about our website visitors using analytics. If you need Website, SEO and/ or PPC work done, I would personally highly recommend this seasoned professional.
My name is Russell Morton. I am the owner of Perfection Roofing and Siding. I am not a tech savvy person and this would be an understatement. Thanks to Mr. Young, he made me a spectacular website at a fraction of the cost of big companies. I did not want my website to look like other websites in my industry and I wanted it to be easy to use. He listened to all my concerns and questions and custom tailored the website to my recommendations. The end result blew me away. Thanks to Young’s work and advice my business really took off and customers even commented how they enjoyed reading my website. His service is excellent and I highly recommend him and his team.
Truly outstanding and a force to be reckoned with! I starting working with Young in early 2016 and have experienced phenomenal success. I was a bit skeptical at first due to poor service levels and constant technical issues with some of the other guys. Young has displayed a passion for our industry and the willingness to personally assist me achieve our goals. To say I’m simply “satisfied” with the level of service received, would be major understatement. I’m proud to be represented by such a caring and results driven organization.
We had been working with a very large digital marketing company but just never received the level of service that we were looking for. Young from Blindspot Digital reached out to us and so glad he did. Young has put a lot of time into learning how our business works, our target markets and putting together our PPC campaigns. We’ve been working together for them for 6 months now with wonderful results. Equally important, we are very impressed by his level of personal commitment, coming to us asking us questions and providing feedback. It’s refreshing when he’s the one calling us and providing the detailed reports on how our campaigns are doing and making suggestions. Young always makes himself available to jump on a call and discuss any questions that we have. Glad to be working together and taking our business to the next level. I would not hesitate to recommend Young and his team at Blindspot Digital.
With the tons of companies calling and emailing on website development and online marketing I was very apprehensive in moving forward on a new project until Young from Blindspot Digital called.
BEST DAY EVER something just clicked between us. He has researched our business to understand fully how we operate on a business level with that personal flair. Young has gone the extra mile to ensure we would be most happy with the end result. I am extremely happy with our website and feel as though I gained a knowledgeable online master and glad to say a new friend. It has been a pleasure dealing with Young as his honesty and integrity shined from the beginning. I highly recommend Young and Blindspot Digital for any website development and online marketing services.
We decided work with Young to upgrade our website and our image online. Young was extremely thoughtful in his approach. He learned every aspect of our business in order to present this to the public. He really got to know exactly what our business stood for and how we could portray this message to the online world. He nailed the end result. Since then we engaged them to manage all of our online advertising including Google PPC. The combination of all of these has resulted in increased guest counts and revenue. Our online image looks great now thanks to Young and Blindspot Digital.
We started working with Young in 2015 for lead generation services and hired him to handle our Pay Per Click advertising at the first of the year. It was a difficult decision because we worked with the same PPC company for several years with good results. But based on the trust I have for him, we decided to go for it and he delivered again. Young’s knowledge of online advertising has been instrumental to the growth of our business. I highly recommend Blindspot Digital for PPC services and online advertising expertise.
We use Blindspot Digital for their advertising services and it has changed my business! We no longer have to worry about the advertising part of our business which frees up so much time to focus on our clients! They are hands on, personal and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. I highly recommend their advertising services!
At the time we hired Blindspot Digital, our website did not show up under key search terms for our business. Within 3 months, our website traffic and leads conversion increased by 114%. Within 6 months we were at the top of “page 1” in every key search term, which increased our traffic and leads conversion another 200%. We are now 9 months into this project, are maintaining our performance and are landing on “page 1” with organic key search terms. Hiring Blindspot was easily the best marketing decision we have made in at least four years.
Blindspot Digital did an amazing job for us with our paid Google advertising. They have a lot of experience and got us to the top of Google search results so we don’t have to rely on referrals to grow our business. I can confidently recommend them! Thanks guys!
