It’s not just learning what people search, but also filtering out hyper-competitive phrases. My initial research can save you weeks trying to rank for the wrong keywords while finding new phrases you may have missed.
- Google Autocomplete
- Moz Keyword Planner
- Keyword competition research
- Keywords for services / blog posts
- Facilitates development of your content
So you want a Chicago SEO consultant who knows how to rank your Google My Business page higher in Maps. The majority of my work has been optimizing for Maps and I use Google’s local search ranking factors to do it.

- chicago photoshop classes (#1)
- chicago video editing classes (#1)
- chicago graphic design classes (#1)
- computer repair pioneer valley (#1)
Even if your lights are green in Yoast, that does not mean your content is optimized. I will show you how to properly optimize content with Yoast, plus other on-page SEO strategies that will rank your pages higher.
- Green lights (or lack thereof)
- Designing a nice landing page
- Image and video optimization
- Link and social media optimization
- Enhancing snippets with rich snippets
Citations (online directories like Google My Business, YellowPages and Acxiom) are both the #2 and #5 ranking factor in Google Maps. As long as you have the passwords to your profiles, I can help you optimize these.
- Google My Business
- Analysis of top 15 citations
- Additional citation building
- Report of new citations built
- Consistent business info / NAP
Site speed improves conversions and is also a ranking factor in Google. My developer and I have optimized multiple WordPress sites to load in under 1 second. You will also be sent ‘before and after’ reports in GTmetrix.

- Before and after GTmetrix reports
- Image, video, theme optimizations
- W3 Total Cache, CloudFlare, MaxCDN

GOOGLE SEARCH CONSOLE
While Google Analytics focuses on learning the behavior of your website traffic, Google Search Console helps you identify technical errors on your site. I can help you set this up, send you a report of errors, then fix them.
- Crawl errors (broken URLs)
- Redirects to fix broken URLs
- Mobile, security, indexing errors
- SEO metrics using search analytics
- Submit Yoast XML sitemap to Google
There are plenty of Chicago SEO consultants out there, but not many get hired to be an instructor for Chicago’s largest Adobe certified training center in Chicago.
I live in the north suburbs of Chicago, but will travel to meet you in your office. Training sessions (eg. on Yoast optimization) can be done through join.me screen sharing.
While my main focus is SEO for WordPress, I was also a WordPress designer for 4 years. If you need help redesigning pages, creating new ones, or using plugins, I still got my skills.
