A digital marketing campaign is not complete without an SEO strategy. You can have great content, an amazing brand, but without SEO, it will simply be lost in the Internet void. One survey of 226 small businesses found that 13% plan to invest in SEO, along with high-quality content, security, and user experience in 2018. SEO is essential and no easy feat, demanding a partner with a meticulous eye and technical know-how. As a result, finding a partner that is reliable and trustworthy is more essential in this field than most. Just as reviews are integral to an SEO strategy, they are necessary to build trust among consumers. Clutch, a B2B market research firm, based in Washington, D.C., provides a platform that helps build trust and confidence through verified reviews in the B2B space.

This is the million dollar question and we understand why. It’s natural for anyone looking for an SEO agency—or thinking about starting an SEO campaign—to want to know what the ROI is and how long it all might take.
Here’s the short answer; our clients typically see positive movement by the end of the third month.
According to Google, it’s wise to “prepare for a campaign up to one year” when undergoing a new SEO strategy.
And their patent shows they will fluctuate a website based on new trust indicators, a process that could take anywhere from four to six weeks.
Ultimately, establishing authority takes time, and no SEO company can tell you exactly how long it takes for an SEO campaign to deliver results. It isn’t something that can be tricked, faked, or rushed.
If Google suspects a website is building authority too quickly, that site’s SEO will likely take a hit.
So we do it the right way, making sure our SEO campaigns are long-term investments. And when the payoff does come, it can be significant, especially considering the money you’ll save by having your site high in organic results, as opposed to dumping cash into Adwords and PPC.
To us, Search Engine Optimization—or S-E-O—is more of a philosophy than a strategy, one that’s focused on building a website’s authority in the search results. No shortcuts, no gimmicks.
How do we do it?
Our philosophy is to mimic the natural way a website gains authority by feeding Google the trust metrics it uses to identify trustworthy and authoritative websites. Because when Google sees your site as authoritative, it is more likely to put it near the top of search results.
We do this using proven methods focused on longevity and relevancy creation that increase visibility within all levels of competition. This also includes a consistent focus on on-page and off-page SEO, the two major components of any website’s authority.
Yesterday, February 14th, Google uploaded a video to their Webmasters Channel on what you need to know before hiring an SEO consultant. Google’s own Maile Ohye, Developer Programs Tech Lead, guides you through some of the relevant information you need to know about the SEO hiring process.
After watching the video in full (with an expectation of some skepticism), I found the video extremely informative and it aligns perfectly with our philosophy here at SEO Services New York/Break The Web.
While 2016 had its ups & downs, I can say one thing for sure, Google gave us an on-your-toes year. Matt Cutts joined the U.S. government; Google placed ads in Maps; We were introduced to AMP.
We have also partaken in a lot of amazing experiences. We introduced our parent company,Break The Web, Inc. We have effectivelyimproved our internal systems to satisfy clients with smaller budgets. We have also networked and gathered intel with some of the greatest SEO minds of the world.
Even more so, throughout 2016, we were presented with a few algorithm changes:
Core Algorithm Update – January 8th, 2016
Core Algorithm Update – May 10th, 2016
Mobile Friendly 2 Update – May 12th, 2016
Possum Update – September 1st, 2016
Penguin 4.0 #1 – September 23rd, 2016
Penguin 4.0 #2 – September 26rd, 2016
Penguin 4.0 #3 – October 6th, 2016
Core Algorithm Update – November 10th, 2016
Throughout all of these algorithmic changes, as you would expect, we remained completely unaffected, not receiving any sort of penalty, and 85% of the time, our clients’ rankings have improved tremendously.
Because of this, I quickly gathered a few of our favorite rankings from 2016. All of these are current satisfied clients of ours who are experiencing tremendous traffic increases, as well as increases in sales and conversions.
*Shhhh: one of our clients is currently in discussion to have their company bought out by a HUGE competitor!
Take a look below at some of our favorite rankings from 2016…
note: to protect the privacy of our clients, all search terms have been blurred out
Campaign Started in July 2016; Page 1 by August 2016; #1 By December 2016
Being on page 1 is great and all, but being #2 is way better!
From Page 4 To Page 1 In Less Than 4 months, Yes Please!
#1 in 2 months
“Thanks for the holiday gift”
Bottom of Page 1 → #1 in a few short months
In 2015 we made you #2. We don’t accept shortcomings!
Do you even rank?
Many so-called “SEO agencies” talk about how they’re the best company. Where’s the proof? Where’s your website ranking?
I take in pride in the fact that my agency has been in the top 2 positions for every “New York SEO” term for over 2 years and that we deliver amazing results for every client.
