About a year ago I completely revamped my website, and when I did that I lost about 85% of my incoming traffic. I tried to do some SEO myself, and hired 3 companies to help me out. None of these efforts made much of a dent. Finally, frustrated, I tried SEO Seattle, since they had a free review as part of their offer. I figured at least I could get a fresh pair of eyes on my site and maybe gain some insight.
Wow! The review was just about completely opposite from what the other SEO companies had said, focusing much more on the quality rather than quantity of incoming links. I've always had a problem with the kind of "shotgun approach" that most SEO companies use, getting links from sites that are not really related to the product you are selling, etc. I guess the idea in most of the SEO world is "any link is a good link". SEO Seattle shares my frustration with this kind of strategy and instead focuses on getting quality links from related businesses where they actually make sense, rather than signing up for 1000 webpage indices that nobody ever looks at anyway. My personal opinion is that sites which are just an index of other sites just clog up the internet and don't do anything useful for anyone, and I've resented that kind of thing since I started my website in 2003.
In the 4 months that I've been using SEO Seattle my traffic has about tripled, and I think with their scientific, targeted approach I will see continued results. They are generating new content for my site and for social media, and the quality of the output is now what is important. This is the future of the internet. Less noise, more signal. Thanks SEO Seattle!
