We love the sound of your phone ringing.
We make it easy to make SEO the best part of your marketing mix.
Have 30 minutes for a call? So do we!
No secret sauce.
Just better leads for your business.
Here’s what else is in it for you.
You don’t have to make a long-term commitment.
How about month-to-month contracts for a change?
Putting your trust in us by handing over the keys to your SEO is a big commitment, so our approach to client contracts is simple: We earn your business every month. You’re here for results and our focus is on achieving them for you instead of on how your account will make our balance sheet look in six months.
Everything we do for you is out in the open. You’ll receive detailed reports every month in language that lets you know how your budget is being used and how well it’s working. You shouldn’t have to know how to do SEO yourself to be able to decipher your SEO agency’s work on your behalf.
You have complete visibility.
It’s your money. You should always know where it’s going.
You get our best, hands-on work every day.
Set it and forget? Not on our watch.
Automated SEO tools have their role (we use them ourselves), but they shouldn’t be relied on to run your SEO from start to finish. If your current SEO agency isn’t frequently digging around the inner workings of your SEO campaigns, you’re not only missing opportunities for better results—you’re paying for programs instead of expertise.
Data points are just numbers until they’re in the hands of people who can mine them for insights into your customers, marketplace and competition. This is where we really shine—analyzing the subtle fluctuations that tell a bigger story, then fine-tuning your campaigns to get bigger results.
We Know Our Stuff and Others Agree.
This is what goes into getting great results for clients like you.
Everything we do begins with data and that’s especially true with keyword research. We do more than find the best search patterns that people enter into the search engines in your target area—we also identify the best keywords that show intent to buy. We review your competition for these keywords and target the sweet spot between keywords with enough traffic and the least amount of competition to make the quickest impact on your business.
SEO doesn’t happen in a vacuum: Your competitors are investing in SEO, too. We break down your top online competitors to determine the source of their online authority, which pieces of their content are driving the most traffic, and what types of content that they have and you don’t. We also track their rankings right along with yours to see how you compare.
We use the data our extensive keyword research yields to optimize your website content, ensuring the right keywords are used prominently throughout. We don’t believe in keyword stuffing or keyword ratios—instead, we create great copy that incorporates your main keywords and synonyms so that it reads well and provides SEO signals to the search engines. We focus on optimizing your URLs, title tags, meta descriptions, H1 to H6 heading tags, image alt text, and bolded text. We look for ways to naturally place your keyword phrases in these important spots to improve the relevancy of your content to search engines and users.
No SEO campaign is complete without a robust content strategy, and ours isn’t limited to blog posts like most SEO companies. Although keyword research is the starting point of a good content strategy, it doesn’t end there. We review the type of content that ranks highest and analyze the content features that contribute to rankings, such as the word count of the top page. We look for numbered lists, how-to guides, videos, checklists or a comprehensive FAQ section, all of which are the components that go into quality content. We identify what Google is already ranking to understand what we need to build to overtake the #1 spot. We then upgrade all of the content that is linked in your navigation to make sure we have sufficient word counts to rank well. We then focus on the long-form content that Google prefers to rank higher than service or product pages.
Links back to your website are still one of the most important search engine ranking signals. It’s also a practice that has been abused by SEO companies and caused penalties to be incurred in the past. Currently, Google is favoring devaluing links over penalizing, so following a natural link building process is key to avoid wasting your budget. Our link building approach is based on solid content marketing strategies. We use your newly created long-form content as the basis for our link building outreach campaigns. We reach out to relevant and authoritative websites in your industry or a closely related field to write relative content citing your long-form content as a resource with a link back to the article. This is a completely natural form of link building that’s labor intensive but yields a small number of valuable links that can bring both traffic and links at a sustainable pace month to month.
We hear too often from prospective clients that they never know what their SEO agency is doing for them. At DAGMAR, we provide you with simple yet thorough SEO reports each month. We don’t just report on metrics but also break down the metrics that are most important to you, such as keyword rankings, traffic increases, and leads generated. Even though SEO starts with keyword rankings, the number that matters most is the number of leads generated. We configure your reporting to make sure we’re tracking the various ways a lead is generated from your website so you know exactly how your SEO campaign is performing month-over-month and year-over-year. Even though SEO can be a technical exercise, your reports don’t have to be. We give you a narrative with each section that explains in plain language you can understand. Have reporting questions? Great—we have answers so let’s get on a call to discuss them. Need a custom report made? No problem—we love diving deep and finding that nugget of data you’re looking for.
These success stories could be yours.

How much does SEO cost?
We’re glad you asked!
If there was ever a solid example of “you get what you pay for,” SEO is it. SEO services can be cheap or they can get you great results, but not both. High-performing SEO can be a significant investment, but your ROI can be significant, too.
The question of cost can’t be answered until we’ve invested some hours in researching your market, keywords, website and competition. We then create an estimate that’s geared toward your needs rather than our services. Everything that comes after that is further customized, including what we do for you each month.
Even with that customization, we do have some common price ranges that can help you determine if we’re likely to be a good fit for you.

Search-engine optimization (SEO) isn’t always as well understood as some other forms of marketing.

That lack of understanding is a big […]
Google announced a change to its search algorithm earlier this week that shows how much better the search engine is getting at understanding searchers’ queries. The good news is that it’s not associated with any type of penalty—instead, Google BERT improves the ways in which Google processes natural language, including the context associated with keywords.

First, the who: here’s who announced it and whom it will affect. On January 17, 2018, on Google’s Webmaster Central Blog, the internet giant announced that page speed will soon be an official ranking factor in mobile searches. What does this mean for your site? Well, page speed has been a ranking factor for desktop […]
“The AMP Project is an open-source initiative aiming to make the web better for all.

Even those who’ve been in the SEO business for a while can get confused about whether to use noindex meta tags or robots.txt files to control how web pages are “seen” (and whether they should appear in search results) by search engines. We wrote in this post about some of the reasons to use robots.txt […]
Take control of how the pages on your site are (or aren’t) accessed by search engines by creating a robots.txt file. The goal is to block certain pages or parts of your site from search engine crawlers, which may seem counterintuitive — you want search engines to find your web pages, right? — but it’s […]
If you’re trying to determine a fair cost for SEO services or compare SEO providers, be prepared to do some research. Although SEO has become an integral part of most comprehensive marketing programs — and there is a well-established set of best-practice fundamentals — there are still a lot of variables influencing how much SEO […]
After years of speculation, and a two-year wait for an update of any kind, Google announced that Penguin, a penalty that Google assesses for spammy links and that causes sites to drop in rankings, is now a permanent part of its core algorithm. It also now operates in real time, refreshing data much faster than […]
