Quick tip? Use keyword research tools like Ahrefs and SEMrush to see what keywords the SEO expert currently ranks for. If they are ranking for keywords that are driving traffic to their own website, chances are, they could do the same for your company. Warning, make sure to view what keywords the specialist is ranking for. I have seen some ad agencies ranking for hundreds of keywords that were nothing but junk phrases that were not related to the buyer intent keywords they should be ranking for. An example would be ‘best SEO agency + your city’ or ‘your city + seo’.

See below what top SEO experts rank for online.

Reno Search Engine Optimization

How can search engine optimization help grow your small business in the Reno Nevada area?

SEO, or search engine optimization is a marketing strategy that helps pages from your website rank high in Google, Yahoo and Bing search engines.

reno search engine optimization

Thousands of people in Reno and even outside of the state of Nevada, search for Reno related keywords every day! Anything from website designers, logo designers to coffee shops and real estate listings. Reno is a hotbed of search engine traffic for sure!

Business owners who ignore this marketing tactic will find it too late or costly to outrank their local competitors once they do hop on the SEO bandwagon.

  • Free customers as long as you rank high in search
  • Seen as the authority in your industry
  • Grab the lion share of new customers searching for your industry

SEO is only part of the solution. PPC pay per click marketing can boost your rankings within a few hours, but can be costly especially if you are new to internet marketing and the PPC world. Website optimization  is far more than adding a few meta title tags and keywords.  Your sites optimization should include on site factors like website load speed and if it is mobile ready.

reno nv

Tens of thousand of people are moving to the Reno area from California. They used Google and other search engines to find new work or homes in Reno. Most of them searched in Google for keywords that your business could have been ranked #1 for.

Search engine optimization can really increase the amount of foot traffic your business sees in an average day. SEO is critical for a business who needs to increase their revenue this year.

You can use search engine optimization tools as well to keep an eye on your SEO pros. You should check your website each week. Tools like Google Search Console are an invaluable SEO tool that has saved me countless hours of work and research while assessing if a website can rank for a keyword this month or would need months of dedicated SEO work.

Want to learn more about me and how I operate? Join me at one of my free Internet Marketing Workshops at Swill Coffee & Wine in Reno Nv. Once a month, I teach a marketing workshop to no more than 50 Reno business owners. You are free to join us.

Reno Calendar of Events

How do you know if search engine optimization will help your business? What if you are in an industry in Reno that is difficult or too expensive to hire and SEO expert to maintain my websites SEO traffic?

I work with a lot of clients in very competitive industries where their average PPC can be as high as $100 a click. In those industries, you can expect to pay $10k or more a month in SEO fees. Sure, you could probably find a SEO company that would do it for less, but you would not know that that their services were not working until a few month into your contract, you have yet to gain a new customer from your website. I see this happen often. Most of the calls I get each day from new prospective SEO clients are from successful businesses that saw a drop in sales online. They hire me to do a technical SEO audit, where often I discover shady SEO practices and web marketing companies paying for fake traffic to be sent to the persons website. So, when they signed up for this super good deal from a local or national SEO company, they saw an immediately spike in traffic in their Google Analytics account.


Most clients think that the SEO company or expert, was doing a fantastic job until a few months in, they are wondering why no one is converting to a sale. When they started digging around inside their websites analytics account, their heart dropped. “Why do I have so many views from India and Africa?”

This is one of the reasons why we do not ask for a 12 month contract with our SEO clients. We do get nervous about this setup because what if the client changes their minds and we did all of this up front work in the beginning without being properly paid for our services, but this is something we are willing to risk to prove our point here. You can hire any SEO idiot for $300 a month, but you will reap what you sow. SEO is hard. SEO takes time, effort, energy and constant change. Google updates the rules twice a day.

I have been working as an SEO and Web Design expert since 1999. I have worked with small business owners, to mommy bloggers all the way to corporate portals, government community websites, university websites as well as famous celebrities. I have won two honorary Webby Awards for my web design work. None of that matters, if I do not get your website ranking for money making keywords that help you reach your goals.

A good SEO expert will not just randomly choose the easiest keyword to rank your company website for, they will dig deeper and test what keywords could drive the highest ROI for your investment. This is an on going process. I work closely with my clients to ensure that I am working on relevant keywords for their business goals.

Website optimization is an exciting field to be in. I get to be on the cutting edge of internet marketing strategies that change lives for the better. My job is to stay on top of what is working in the SEO world and what is old news.

Some of the top Search Engine Optimization opportunities for your business are:

  1. Video SEO
  2. Social Media SEO
  3. Image search SEO
  4. Scholar SEO
  5. Q & A SEO

and more opportunities to get in front of potential customers online.

You can also search on Youtube for how to do SEO and learn hundreds of different web optimization techniques and strategies. Whether they are up to date and current with what Google deems as white hat SEO practices is to be determined.

Most Youtube SEO channels have outdated and useless information. Some however have polished video programs that are intriguing and interesting to watch. And yes, you will learn some valuable and useful web marketing tips and tricks. The kicker is that if you would like to take it a step further and actually use the information to say, make money in the real world, you will have to hire the SEO celebrity for $10’s of thousands of dollars a month just to start.

reno seo expertsFor me? For Freeee?

If you think about it, why would a top SEO expert give away all of his or hers SEO super powers for free? Sorry, there has never been or will ever be a free lunch. 🙂

Want to speak with a local SEO expert in Reno? Just give me a call already. Lets hop on the phone, review where your at, what your competitors are doing and then at least get a factual SEO quote. You can then do your own calculations as to what it is going to take to break even, what it will take to turn a profit. Then make your decisions based off of facts that will either save the business or save you a few hundred bucks.

What is Search Engine Optimization? Wikipedia states…

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the online visibility of a website or a web page in a web search engine‘s unpaid results—often referred to as “natural”, “organic“, or “earned” results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a website appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users; these visitors can then be converted into customers.[1] SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, video search, academic search,[2] news search, and industry-specific vertical search engines. SEO differs from local search engine optimization in that the latter is focused on optimizing a business’ online presence so that its web pages will be displayed by search engines when a user enters a local search for its products or services. The former instead is more focused on national or international searches.

What is SEO?

SEO stands for search engine optimization. SEO helps a website rank in Google and other search engines for keywords that people are using every day to find products and services they need. Having your website SEO optimized improves the chances of this website ranking for those keywords in a search engine.

Learn more about our Internet Marketing Workshops here.

How can SEO help my small business?

Small business owners cannot ignore the opportunities that a SEO optimized website will bring to your company. Who loves free internet marketing? Seriously, if you were to start a PPC or pay per click campaign to advertise your business on Google, you can expect to pay $2.00, $10… and more per click to position your website at the top of the search results. With a solid SEO marketing plan with simple actionable steps, your small business can rank at the top of Google search results in the free clicks section!

Can I learn to do SEO on my own?

Yes, I work with small businesses every day. That is what I do! I have found that doing one on one SEO workshops on a regular basis can really help your local business achieve your SEO goals within a few months or less. Some small businesses see results within a week after implementing my simple SEO strategies.

What are the average costs with SEO?

It depends on a few things. One of which being, how competitive are the keywords your small business is looking to rank for? Some keywords area easier than others. Most small business SEO plans can expect to pay $900 and up per month to rank for a handful of top keywords in their niche. Other businesses like medical, dental, legal and restaurants can expect to pay thousands a month to compete. I can do a quick search and give you a good idea of what you can expect to pay a local SEO expert if they were to do the work for you versus you learning what is needed for your unique website, existing ranking positions and competitive market at the time.

What is SEO Conclusion

As more and more small business owners understand the benefit of SEO services, I expect the competition to increase online across the board for all niches. In the 18+ years’ experience I have in web design, SEO, internet marketing and email marketing I know one thing to be true for SEO ranking, the early bird does get the worm and the persistent small business owner who builds up their authority online over time, will always outrank their competitors.
