Tim Brown is the owner of Hook Agency, an SEO and Web Design company focused primarily on driving traffic and leads for small businesses, roofers and construction companies.

Unfortunately, most ‘best SEO companies in America’ lists allow you to pay to be included! This goes against the very fabric of what SEO is about – which is the ability to get your site higher ORGANICALLY, rather than by paying. Well… when I saw our ‘best SEO companies’ list was ranking nationally – I knew I could create something more useful for people searching that term.

  • I could just use this list to fluff my friend’s egos
  • I could be super light on research, and just use who other lists say is awesome
  • I could not give super specific reasons why each company made the list

Instead, I’ve decided to take a hard look at the actual metrics that would showcase SEO skill for themselves, evidence of serious effectiveness for clients, evaluating their niches, and reviews.

I think we can all agree that each of these SEO companies has its own unique specialty and process of getting their clients the best results possible.

Of course, no company is going to do everything the same as the other. Just like some companies have specific niches they work with, and some companies work with every industry and company size across the board.

It’s more of a preference thing and be sure that you and your potential SEO company/client are the right fit for each other. It’s important to find someone you can commit to working with long enough to see beneficial results.

I hope you found this article interesting and gave you a better idea of the great SEO companies out there. Also, remember that SEO is a process that you need to commit to in order to receive the best results no matter who you are working with. It is not something that magically happens overnight.
