1. Why is SEO packaged into your website development?
We focus heavily on the technical side of web development and while we feel it is important to have a beautifully designed website that performs well, more important is that it be found by your prospects and customers. In order for your website to be found, search engines need to know that your website answers the question or need of the searcher. Optimization is the process of providing context for search engines and humans alike. Your website is only half complete without optimization.
Read our article on the importance of prioritizing your SEO strategy during your website design process.
2. I need a website but do not have a domain yet and do not know where to start, can you help?
We would be happy to help you with the development of your website and yes, we can also help you with domain name research and purchase as well as getting your hosting set up before development begins.
3. Do you require a long-term contract for services?
We do not. While we are happy to discuss long term projects, we do not require a commitment to build our relationship with you. Should you decide to make this a long term relationship, we do provide a discounted rate for longer terms but at no time are you locked into a contract. We want you to choose us because you love us, it’s as simple as that.
4. I already have a website, can you help with optimizing it for search?
Absolutely! Please note that our optimization process begins with a technical review. If your website requires considerable technical upgrades to be optimized there is a good chance you’ll hear us recommend a new website. More often than not, if you website was not built within the last couple of years you will spend more development dollars on fixing it than you would on building a new one.
5. I just need something printed that my designer created, can you help?
Absolutely! We work with several commercial printers across the US so regardless of your location we can turn around high quality print materials quickly. We can help with final file prep as well to be sure your project prints perfectly.
6. What kind of items can you print?
We can provide a full range of paper goods, apparel and branded promotional items for events and general business use. If you have a specialty need that our partners do not provide, we’ll hit the streets and help you find the right vendor for the right price. Business cards, postcards, envelopes, brochures, flyers, letterhead, catalogs, stickers, banners, pop-up banners, packaging and a lot more.
7. How do I know if my current website is mobile-friendly?
Google offers a quick tool to run a scan on your website. Just enter in your domain, click the “Run Test” button and you are on your way.

8. How do I get on page one of Google for a specific keyword?
There is no quick fix, one size fits all solution but Google gives preference to websites with quality content and relevant keywords that speak to and attract readers as well as provide their crawlers with a logical and succinct understanding of your content. Google and other search engines care most about delivering answers to the person searching.
9. How long does it take to start seeing results with SEO?
As with all things SEO, it will depend upon multiple variables including your current website state and the level of work required to build your foundation. Progress is possible within a few months, but should you need to recover from a Google penalty or clean up your website content and backlinks then it could take upwards of 6 months to see real progress. But don’t let that scare you, you intend to continue operating your business and optimizing your website and your content is only going to do great things for your brand in the long run. You’ll always have access to the results in our client portal and we’ll be here to help you understand it all along the way.
10. What is Domain Authority and why is it important?
Domain Authority is a scale from 1-100 that rates the likelihood of a website to be placed in search engine results. The higher the number the more authority that domain has.
How is DA calculated? There are over 100 factors that Moz uses to compute domain authority. Here are some of them:
- Referring root domains
- Number of backlinks to your website
- Quality of links on your website
- The volume of content on your website
- Age of domain (when it first went live on Google, not when it was first registered)
- Social signals
- Quality of site content
- Website speed & performance
- Moz trust (grows with time)
