First A Few Words From Our Clients
Brian Rutherford didn't have much to say in his Google review but this is what he said to me privately.
"Bringing you onboard my Web Design Business is the best decision I have made since I started "
Despite some difficult setbacks with some technical issues with my website, Tom was able to get me some top rankings for national and local keyword searches. Great job.
I have been involved in SEO myself for a few years now so I know SEO talent when I see it. Tom at Green Genie is one of the best in Toronto if not in Canada. The REAL value he added has been to my coaching and workshop business. His guidance and direction have moved me to the top of several ratings.
We initially tried doing our own SEO work. We quickly realized we were in over our heads. Since hiring Green Genie our local business has at least doubled and then some. We signed on for a second campaign to improve our national searches about 3 months ago and are really starting to notice an increase in calls and traffic to our site from people beyond our local region. Can't wait to see what the future brings with this company doing our online marketing. 6 stars would be better!

Key Questions to Ask Your St. Paul SEO Company before You Hire Them
Your business is your brainchild. It doesn’t matter if you are a marketer assigned to grow the business or you are the company owner yourself. Organic traffic coming from Google is vital to drive more sales and leads for your sales funnel to stay full.
Hiring a St. Paul SEO agency can be one of the biggest and most important marketing decisions you will ever make for your business. Once you find the right St. Paul SEO expert, in time, this can make you shoot to Google’s first page. This will then drive more profitable traffic to your website. Profitable traffic means that when you get the top spot on Google, there is no longer a need for you to pay for that traffic because it is already earned, making your profit margins more fantastic than ever.
Hiring the wrong St. Paul SEO company can only cause you setbacks, doing your business more harm than good.
Whether you are wondering if your current St. Paul SEO company makes the cut, or you plan to look for new St. Paul SEO services, here are some of the questions you can ask to ensure that you stay on the right path.
How Long Does it Take to Get a Good St Paul Google Ranking?
This question is a bit tricky. Any St. Paul SEO company that tells you that they can make your business rank in just a matter of one to two months is only giving you empty promises.
Sure, on-site adjustments can be made on a website with a backlink profile and solid domain authority put in place to make it get to Google’s first page. However, there is simply no guarantee and no one must answer this question right away without doing a bit of research first.
An established and confident St. Paul SEO company will look into your business and offer an estimate according to its strategy and competitiveness. But, they will never assure you of first page results within a very short span of time.
Will There be an Onsite Optimization?
Your website’s user experience is a crucial factor for Google. Do visitors stay on your website for a long time and have a good experience? Is the bounce rate high?
A reliable St. Paul SEO expert will look at Google Analytics at your website’s most visited pages and determine the pages with the highest bounce rate. They can help you figure out methods to fix the pages or redirect them to the more relevant pages when they are not serving any purpose.
When searching for a solid St. Paul SEO company, see to it that they look for ways to improve your website pages. Remember that SEO is a continuous process so such projects must also be continuous.
What Backlinks Strategy is Being Used?
It is quite amazing how a lot of businesses don’t use any backlink strategy. These backlinks serve as the foundation to the algorithm of Google. When your site lacks quality backlinks, increasing your rank on Google can prove to be tough. You would want to measure your domain authority instead of your competitors, which is a good indicator to see how well you would rank on Google and how far you have to go for the top placement.
If you do not have any new links that point to your website, it means that there’s no proactive measure that takes place in this area. If an SEO company says it’s building backlinks to your website, ask them for backlink profiles so you could see every link to ensure that they’re legit.
How Much Time You Have to Spend to Get to Know My Business?
For SEO to be successful, St. Paul SEO company should understand the business you’re working with, or else Google will not understand it. The recommended time to meet a client that requires SEO services is at least ninety minutes before talking anything about SEO to go over business principles.
How Will Reporting Be Shown to Highlight Progress?
Before you start working with St. Paul SEO company, see to it that there’s a list of some relevant keywords compiled. The list of initial keywords will be the benchmark for progress made in the long run. Once you start at the bottom, of course you want to see results made as you try climbing to the first page. Ensure that your list of keyword is not complicated.
What is Your Blog Strategy?
While lots of SEO companies may write generic blogs, you have to ask yourself what relevant such blogs serving on for my business and on my site? Many business owners are now aware of the importance of blogs to Google. Yes, it is true that blogs are beneficial. If your content drives relevant traffic to your business, it will help you spread the word about your business effectively. For blogs, you must focus on the questions that your customers could have that would not be covered on your website elsewhere.
Is There Keyword Research?
Your St. Paul SEO company must be able to show you the most popular variations of keywords for your interior pages and homepage that will drive more traffic to your website. Once you do Google search and scroll to the first page’s bottom, you will find related search terms that Google would find. Those are good keyword variations to include on your website. Ask your St. Paul SEO company whether it’s using this free tool or free method to find relevant keywords that may convert for your business.
Are There Some References I Can Rely On?
SEO companies will have references it can offer you. More established St. Paul SEO company will have at least 3 references that could talk about the success their business had working with the company. Moreover, never forget to conduct a Google search to know if the SEO company you’re about to work with ranks in the local market. If not, know why it does not practice what it preaches.
The best St. Paul SEO company will help put every piece together for your SEO puzzle that can make a huge difference when it comes to where you rank on Google. Moreover, it’ll also help you know what’s taking place with SEO strategy since it is not that confusing.
WHAT IS SEO?
Honestly , does any business person really care about the technical definition of, or the strategies needed to implement an effective Search Engine Optimization campaign? If you do, then that’s great, we can talk more about that.
For now, let’s talk about what it can achieve for your business!
WHAT CAN SEO DO FOR ME?
SEO, over a relatively short period of time, can help your website get to page one of Google. 90% of the clicks to websites come from visitors to Page 1 !
30% of those come from the first entry on page 1
WHAT IF I AM ALREADY ON PAGE 1?
That’s great. But for what keyword(s)?
You could very well be ranking on page 1 for your name but that is a given. You need to rank for the more competitive keywords because they are the words and phrases that people are, by nature, typing into Google to find a product or service such as yours.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT KEYWORDS
Keywords are like individual phonebooks. In the tradition phone book you had a ranking based on your name. With a company name like “AAAAA Abattoir ” you would likely be the first listing on page 1. ” Zekes Slaughter-house” would be much harder to find! Keywords have far less limitations.
Let’s say you were a hypnotherapist. People may type in “hypnotherapist” to seek you out. The results for that search would constitute a virtual phonebook that Google would assemble for the searcher.
But “hypnotherapist in Phoenix” or “hypnotist” or “hypnotherapy for smoking” would create their own individual “Virtual Phonebook” pages with very different results for those doing the search!
OK SO HOW DOES THIS CONVERT TO $$$?
Simple…. People search…. You show up in that search on page 1…. People contact you. …More contacts + more sales = “GET THE GREEN $$$”
BUT…..You need to show up on page 1…and not just for one keyword
HOW MANY KEYWORDS SHOULD I RANK FOR?
That depends on your budget, your type of business, your personal objectives and many other factors.
There could be just a few keywords that make all the difference to your situation and there could be hundred
IS SEO MY ONLY OPTION TO SHOW UP ON PAGE 1?
No , you could pay for ads that may or may not put you on page one all of the time. It depends on the competition for keywords again. If your competitors are paying a higher price per click you fall lower in the rotation on page 1.
The costs can get very high in competitive markets.
HOW HIGH CAN ADWORDS COSTS GET?
Depends on how high of a budget you have.
I know a plumbing company that spends $70,000 per month!
It’s possible that a strong SEO campaign could achieve similar results for a fraction of the cost with more sustainable results!
