Looking for a Columbus SEO company?

Well done - you nailed it.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is an incredibly critical component of proper website development. For those of you who are building a web geek repertoire of acronyms, SEO is the practice of "optimizing" a website in order to place high in search engine results – we're talking Google, Bing and the rest of the web content curation crew.

We have provided SEO services for more than 10 years – this was before people even knew how to spell “SEO.” Throughout the years, ForeFront has watched search engines change and we've adapted our practices to appease the almighty power of Google. We've helped scads of clients (yes, scads) achieve top rankings. Along the way, we've seen some pretty incredible success stories. Our team has seen the unlimited power of SEO and the incredible effect it can have – when done correctly.

Unfortunately, we've also seen the opposite. We've had to rescue quite a number of sites, typically ones with dirt poor rankings thanks to well-intentioned-but-poorly-executed search marketing programs (overseas backlink generating companies, anyone?). Did you know your site could be suffering from a Google penalty and you might not even know? Talk to one of our experts today - we'll do a free evaluation of your site and let you know what's up. Don't let your pages go poorly ranked. They deserve a good home. (Cue “Arms of an Angel” by Sarah McLachlan.)

WARNING. . . lots of geekspeak ahead. Do not proceed unless you have a burning desire to know stuff that will make people look at you funny at cocktail parties. Don't ask us how we know that happens.

Of algorithms and whatnot

The three major search engines (Google, Yahoo and Bing) have their own set of super-secret rules – or algorithms – that they use to determine what site will show up first when a particular term is searched for. Even though the "formulas" are top secret, programmers worldwide share their knowledge of best practices and techniques that have been proven to please the Search Engine Overlords. The problem? These formulas are shaken up - not stirred - on a regular basis, causing all those programmers to scurry around, willy-nilly, developing new techniques without abandoning some of the good practices of yesteryear. It's probably the most dynamic part of web development (speaking strictly in a geek sense).

Our SEO experts spend their time staying up to date on all this knowledge and talking about analytics and algorithms at social gatherings – but not so loud that the competition may hear. They like to boast about proven successes and tell stories of how they helped create highly ranked websites.

SEO Reporting Software

SEO columbus ohioPerhaps the biggest downfall of SEO is the mystery that surrounds it. You hire someone to optimize your site, they tamper around a bit and then they go away. At some point, they return to tell you that the work has been done and your site will soon skyrocket up the charts. That takes a lot of faith and hope - and risk.

You get to see exactly what work is being done, up-to-the-minute key phrase performance, how many backlinks your site has gained and even a full report on other keywords that are being influenced!
