Technical aspects of your website influence the amount of traffic it will naturally receive from search engine searches. We can take the structure of your website and modify it in a way to get more free traffic from Google on a regular basis.
Your website needs fresh content on a regular basis to drive the kind of traffic that will earn you business. This doesn't necessarily mean putting up new articles and landing pages constantly, but it does mean targeting the content you do put up and making it count.
Earning backlinks is the number one thing you can do to rank your website higher on Google searches. When it comes to earning backlinks, 'less is more' has never been more important. We create high quality links on a regular basis back to your site to rank it higher systematically.

SEO is short for Search Engine Optimization – it's the process of increasing the metrics on a website so that it can show up higher in Google search results, and other search engine results.
SEO works by many factors but the top three are:
SEO is important because if your site isn't visible – it's like it never happened. No one likes to spend a bunch of money on a website and then see it collect dust.
If people can find your website, they have more opportunities to do business with you.

If you can get free traffic from Google on a regular basis without paying an arm and a leg for paid aids, it's magic.
It can take over a year – but we like to shoot for significant movement in 6 months, and clear return on investment in 9.
If people tell you a lot sooner than that – it may sound good, but is likely not reflective of reality. Real, long-term change takes longer, but lasts longer as well.
Google paid ads can get your results quickly – but aren't going to do anything for you after you stop spending money.
Chicago SEO can push you up in search results in a way that lasts long after you stop spending money on SEO. Ideally you continually find more ways to rank higher and keep pushing, but once again - the 'half life' for SEO is much longer than paid ads.
