About Us

We’re a Mom & Pop shop. But don’t let that fool you. Our success track record spans 27 years. We have successfully ranked everything from fishing guide sites, all the way to Fortune 100 corporations with deadly accuracy. Our scientific approach to SEO is unique in the industry. SEO is not a “feel” it is about precision. It is very targeted, like a scalpel not a sledge hammer. We use our proprietary tool set, that we developed, to analyze what it takes to win.

At one point in time, we ran a 4,000 square foot office with 30 employees. Running this small team became the focus rather than keeping our eye on our core competence. Changing our structure has allowed us to get back to our roots. We helped our employees create their own companies and become our suppliers. With our energies refocused on what we do best, this has allowed us to grow and deliver a much better product and service. It has allowed us to create new technologies and dream of better ways to serve our growing clientele.

It is our belief that it is in our best benefit to ensure your success. And to that end, we will study the market and provide you with the precise metrics it takes to finesse your way to the top. Brute force SEO, Shotgun SEO, does not work. You don’t go into a dark barn and blast away hoping to only hit the rats. It is impossible to have a “feel.” We believe in hard cold numbers. Precision SEO requires a full understanding of the playing field, the odds and the exact requirements to win. We like to win. If you are reading this, you found us because we won. And we can help you win as well.

➧ LinkedIn Steve’s Bio

Steve graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics. In high school he studied Electronics and Computer programming. Growing up with a slide rule in one hand and a soldering iron on the other, he spent many hours solving complex mathematical problems. At 17 he wrote an Integral Calculus program even before taking formal calculus training. Yes, he is a geek with a heavy math bent.

Steve started building websites in 1995. Initially it was a trade to go fishing, since he couldn’t afford to indulge in his passion. He soon learned that building websites wasn’t enough. He had to figure out how to rank them in the search engines of the day. He basically started doing SEO (Search Engine Optimization) long before there was a name for what he did. As time progressed, this grew into a business. It was small at first, but grew in leaps and bounds.

During this time, Steve juggled his job as a programmer at Washington Mutual Bank (WaMu) and doing SEO and web development on the side. His talents got noticed and he became the SEO Guru for the bank. When JP Morgan Chase bought WaMu, Steve knew he had a job months before his team was taken on. The SEO Steve did for Chase still stands today. Steve does SEO that stands the test of time.

He gave me grief about my Alaska site. But that call was the best thing to happen to me. I shared Steve’s info with another Alaska guide, I really regret doing that.

I’m not in Alaska. I own a law firm in Seattle. Steve walked in one day with a reckless driving ticket. That was the best day of my life. I grew from a small 2 man office to a dominant player in Seattle with over 16 lawyers working for me. I haven’t practiced law in over 2 years. I have tried other SEOs hoping to get a better deal. I just end up getting burned. Steve is the real thing. If you want to win, you want Steve on your side.

I just referred an old friend who is a lawyer to Steve. I could not in good conscience send him to some other SEO. I know it will bite me as we are in competition. But what can I do?

I wanted to rank for Anchorage Water Damage Restoration. Steve told me it was a waste of time. I got the number 1 spot for just about any Anchorage water damage search. Just like he said, there is no search market for it. He knows his stuff. So we are going for Anchorage Carpet Cleaning/Cleaner search terms. We just started in Feb 2012 and already we have moved up 5 notches.

Steve is an unbelievable guy. He found me an Alaska site that was already ranking for top Alaska Fishing search terms. I got it for $500 from one of his Alaska clients who was retiring. It’s the deal of a lifetime, too good to be true. I can’t thank him enough. You don’t find many people like him.
