In early 2015, we contracted David Freid of SEO Seattle to provide search engine optimization services for our website. We have had previous SEO companies try to increase our visibility on the major web search platforms… All with mixed results. Some of those were multiyear projects where grand promises were made up front but the results were not anywhere near what was promised. Additionally, as those projects evolved and the results were not forthcoming, each company solicited greater funding to try to accomplish the initial promises that were not attained. From the start David was honest and open in his approach. He laid out his goals and how he proposed to attain them. We service 3 counties in the Seattle metro area and our website has 14 geo targeted cities. The initial goal was to improve visibility in the Seattle and Bellevue metro areas and then increase visibility is other cities. We are now in a strong first page position for both of those targeted areas and are starting to target other cities within our marketing area. We highly recommend SEO Seattle and David Freid. If you are looking for honesty, a successful SEO program, and a strong adherence to “white hat” SEO procedures, then look no further. You will not be disappointed!

When working on a website’s ranking we don’t only work on the content – enhancing its authority and user experience – and the coding of a site, it is much more involved than that.

The process of optimization includes strategically updating a presence on Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, YouTube and other similar platforms.

We use all of our knowledge and experience in these areas to augment a site’s search engine optimization. When we optimize a client’s status on Google search we also make the company’s professional online presence to be as fully perfect, functional and as effective as possible.

More about the way we define Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

The act of defining search engine optimization (SEO) can be daunting. Especially when one considers the large number of different views on how best to define SEO. Yes, the definition of SEO by those labeled as SEO Experts, can widely differ across the SEO community.

*The following is a definition of SEO given by one popular website.
Webopedia’s definition is, “a methodology of strategies, techniques and tactics used to increase the amount of visitors to a website by obtaining a high-ranking placement in the search results page of a search engine (SERP) — including Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines.”

Our SEO Company defines the term SEO simply as “User Experience”.

Every one of the hundreds of SEO elements that we consider important and to support a websites search engine rankings, can in one way or another be linked to “User Experience”. Adding terms like, bounce rate, load times, SSL, Referral SPAM, original content, URL structure, meta tags, anchor text, keyword density, authority, font size, authorship, Google AMP and the seemingly endless list of elements that are part the SEO process can be overwhelming to many website owners.

One thing worth noting from the list of SEO elements, is that not all content is found equal regardless of its quality by some search engines. Google has recently shared its use of “Authority” in its ranking formula and it is now more than ever about the Author of the content found on Googles first page search results.

The use of authority as it is associated with top ranking content can be best described as “USER EXPERIENCE”.

From March 2016, VGI has decided to offer “FULL CLIENT DISCLOSURE SEO”.

What does this mean?

VGI now provides *eligible prospective clients with a free, no-obligation, SEO VIDEO REVIEW of their website. The video is a recording of the VGI SEO process, during the review of your website and its current search engine optimization readiness. Each SEO VIDEO REVIEW will include a detailed record of the steps taken by our SEO, and show in detail the exact methods of search engine optimization that VGI is recommending.

*VGI SEO does not provide support for a website considered to be a competitor of our current VGI SEO clients.

The decision to use video documentation during our initial SEO analysis was made to better support the need for VGI to address the concerns made by some website owners with past SEO associations that had used dubious search engine optimization methods.

The epidemic is real and one that our Seattle SEO Agency sees as a going concern. One example of a popular SEO method not supported by Google is the use of “Private Blog Networks”. PBN’s are a powerful SEO method, still in use today by many website owners, (knowingly or not).

NOTE: Verti Group International a.k.a. SEO Seattle®, has never employed the use of PBN’s.

We develop the correct, unique SEO Strategy, Every Time

There are many different approaches to SEO. Many of the SEO elements used by website owners actually employ techniques that are not supported by Google. Some SEO techniques, which may clearly provide top rankings today, can cause your website problems in the future.

The Google algorithm updates are designed among other things, to close the door on methods determined by Google to game the search rankings, in ways that they see as being contrary to their guidelines.

A Brief History…

The original brain child for the company was that of our own chief of SEO, David S. Freid. Today, David leads a team of SEO experts that to their credit have delivered thousands of first-page search engine results on the behalf of our valued SEO clients. During a previous position as a respected OnLine Marketing Consultant working with a leading Fortune 10 company at its Seattle branch. It was here that David quickly became commonly referred to as “SEO Seattle” by both clients and company. Another sign of his passion for SEO, today, David is the only Seattle SEO to be awarded the official use of the trade mark “SEO Seattle®” by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. SEO Seattle® was also the original name of our Seattle SEO company until a decision was made to re-brand the company to better support the company’s continued growth as a national SEO service provider. Verti Group International a.k.a. SEO Seattle® currently provides SEO services to those located in 7 states.

“We live in a time when search engines like Google and Bing are advancing their technologies at a “quick time” pace.
I believe it necessary to be as much an expert about tomorrows search engine optimization needs as it is today.”
– David Freid / SEO
