The Right Local SEO Company For Your Small-To-Medium-Size Business
Berkeley / Oakland / Marin / San Francisco Northern CA Bay Area
If your competition always seems to appear higher than you in online search results, perhaps you've determined that your business needs good search engine optimization (SEO) and ─ optionally ─ Google Ads pay-per-click (PPC) advertising.
Working with a good, honest, local SEO company like ours can be as important as ─ or even more important than ─ having a good website. Whatever types of products or services you offer, the likelihood of people finding your site and your business online can be greatly improved with effective SEO.
What Differentiates Us From Other SEO Companies?
We're unlike most SEO companies. If you've spoken to ─ or even worked with ─ some of them, you might know they typically utilize misleading and unethical marketing and pricing practices intended to get as much of your money as possible, with limited understanding of SEO, and little regard for you, your needs, or your budget.
Some of the methods they commonly use include:
Hard-Sell, High-Pressure Sales Tactics
Non-Transparent And Inflated Pricing
Having You Make Large, Never-Ending Payments They Falsely Claim Are Necessary
Deceptive Untruths ("We're The #1 Rated SEO Company")
Unethical Promises And Guarantees ("We Get You Ranked On The First Page Of Google")
Fake Reviews That Appear Only On Their Own Websites
Minimal Communication And Interaction With You
The Importance Of Good Communication
Other SEO companies typically don't even mention the role communication plays in achieving the best results for their clients. At SEOzone we consider it one of the most important elements of good SEO and a good business relationship. There's a "team effort" aspect to implementing the best and most effective local SEO for you and your business. It's not something you should simply hand over to an SEO company and just hope for the best.
The optimal SEO process includes clear, open, ongoing communication between you and your SEO company. A good SEO company works closely with you to implement the specific facets of SEO that are most beneficial to you, and personalized for your site, your business, and your budget. Good communication is essential in achieving the most successful SEO.
How We Can Help
We provide comprehensive on-site and off-site local SEO that covers all the bases, including:
Content Writing And Editing
Image Editing And Compression
Proper HTML Tags And Code (Heading Tags, Title Tags, Meta Descriptions, Schema Markup, Image Alt Text)
Clean Internal Links
Appropriate Outbound Links
Local Business Listings (aka Local Citations) With Consistent Name, Address, & Phone (NAP)
And our local SEO extends even further. If you have a Google My Business listing or a Yelp business listing (they're free, and every local business should use both), we can have them appearing higher in organic search results. (Other SEO companies only offer to "manage" your local listings, not to SEO them for higher rankings.) Because of their importance ─ including the influence of their customer reviews ─ optimizing these listings can provide a meaningful increase in the online visibility and reputation of your business.
Of course we also do Google Ads PPC (pay-per-click) advertising, which is ─ in our opinion ─ the best and most effective way to spend your online advertising dollars for maximum ROI. If you'd like help setting up, improving, or running your Google Ads campaigns, give us a call.

We do all of your SEO ourselves, with no gimmicks or automated shortcuts (which are penalized by Google). We also offer payment options and flexibility to help accommodate you and your budget, so please feel free to openly discuss pricing with us.

Reviews And Contact
Most of our clients come to us via word-of-mouth or independent online reviews because they want to work with a highly-rated local SEO company that's honest, ethical, and personal.
If a local SEO company is really good, they should want you to know what their customers say about them on independent review sites. Please read what our actual clients say about us on Google and Yelp. (Be sure to include Yelp's "filtered" reviews. And we always have more very nice reviews on the way!)
Feel welcome to call today for a complimentary, no obligation (and no pressure or sales pitch!) phone consultation and analysis of your website and the online presence of your business.
Thanks for your interest. We look forward to working with you.
