Local SEO

We can help your business rank organically for people searching in the neighborhoods surrounding your business.

Voice Search

We can help you optimize your website for voice search so you capture all of the Portlanders using Siri, Google Home, and Alexa.

Content For SEO

Google itself states that you should create content "primarily for users, not for search engines." Our team of talented writers can help.

A Portland SEO Expert Or Company Should Do These 13 Things (But They Don't)

At Portland SEO Growth, these are principles we live by. They are non-negotiables that we commit to with each client.

Go ask other SEO companies if they do all 13 of these – we assure you that they don’t. 

1. They Should Be Dominating SEO Themselves

Go to Google and type in “Portland SEO” (over 12,500 searching for this each year) or “Portland SEO Company” (over 3,200 searching for this each year), and you’ll find us dominating.

We’re competing against other SEO companies. This is a highly competitive space and we’re still outperforming our competitors.

Imagine what we can do for you.

2. They Should Have Great Online Reviews

We encourage you to read all of our reviews on Google. You’ll hear from real clients who share their honest opinion.

There is no other SEO company in Portland that has the quality, or quantity, of positive reviews that we have. 

3. They Should Be Working Towards Very Specific SEO Goals

“Increasing your SEO” is not a goal. Many Portland SEO firms operate this way.

Instead, there needs to be clearly defined goals that align with your future. Do you want more phone calls? More online form submissions? Our SEO goals are built around those.

For example, Winter & Grossman had a goal of 10+ phone calls per month. After 2 months of working together, they surpassed their goal and had 17 phone calls in July 2020. As you can see from the previous year of data, they never had anywhere close to that amount of phone calls in one month.

4. They Should Be Transparent With You Throughout the Entire Process By Giving You Access To an Up-To-Date Dashboard

SEO marketing in Portland, if you go with the wrong company, can lead to misleading data.

You should have the right to your data. And you should have the ability to view your data whenever you want to make sure the campaign is performing how you want.

At Portland SEO Growth, we give you access to your own personal dashboard that you can view at any time.

5. They Should Track Data Meticulously

Most SEO “experts” don’t even track data. They say that they’ll “increase your SEO” but they don’t have the data to prove it. 

At Portland SEO Growth, we track every piece of data from your rankings, CTR, user experience metrics, conversion rates, phone calls, form submissions, and more. With all this data, we can make calculated decisions.

6. They Should Set Expectations Properly

Many search engine optimization companies will say things like “we can get you on Page 1 of Google.”

First, guaranteeing that is impossible due to the volatility of Google’s algorithm. Second, those expectations are likely not to be met. 

At Portland SEO Growth, we set realistic expectations and then we over-perform on them. 

7. They Should Have At Least 10 Case Studies Proving Previous Success

We have dozens of case studies proving our success. If you’d like to view some of our case studies, you can click on the link.

8. They Should Charge a Fair and Affordable Price

Many of the SEO companies in Portland, OR charge ridiculously expensive prices. 

At Portland SEO Growth, our pricing structure is affordable for the average small business owner.

9. They Should Allow Potential Clients to Speak To Paying Clients

Every SEO company in Portland is going to argue that they’re the best.

A great strategy to figuring out just how good they are? Talk to some of their current clients.

At Portland SEO Growth, most of our clients (except those who don’t want to share their data or information due to privacy issues) are willing to talk to potential clients because they’ve been so happy with their results.

10. They Should Avoid Binding Contracts

One of the biggest concerns that you should have is if you’re signing a binding contract with an SEO company. This means that you lock in a 6 or 12-month contract. Do NOT do this.

These contracts do not force the SEO company to do the best for you. They should be earning your business each month by constantly improving your results. 

At Portland SEO Growth, we do not have clients sign binding contracts. 

11. They Should Explain What They're Doing It And Why They're Doing It

Other SEO experts in Portland operate using a black box. They don’t tell you what they’re doing or why they’re doing it. 

At Portland SEO Growth, we’re extremely transparent. We give you insights into what we’re doing using language that you can understand.

12. They Should Be a Partner Throughout the Process, Not Just Another "SEO Consultant" Telling You What To Do

A local SEO company should be your partner. They should work with you. 

Instead, many SEO companies in Portland feel like they should have control over you.

At Portland SEO Growth, we approach every client relationship as a partnership.

13. They Should Have Extreme Ownership Over The Campaign - No Excuses

Other SEO Agencies in Portland are quick to blame. If they don’t get you the results you want, they’ll blame it on you or external factors.

At Portland SEO Growth, we never make excuses. It’s our job, no matter what, to get you the results you deserve.

FAQs About Portland SEO Services

Here are the most common questions we’ve heard.

There is no “best SEO company in Portland” – it totally depends on your business. We recommend that you shop around and get as much information from every SEO company as possible.

By gathering pricing, case studies, contract information/policies, reading reviews, talking to current clients of these companies, etc, you’ll find clarity on which company is best for you.
Some SEO services in Portland include website design. However, website design is often a separate process.
Yes, we help e-commerce websites with their SEO.

Below are just two examples of e-commerce SEO results we’ve gotten for our clients.

1. Chiavaye went from averaging ~20 organic visitors from Google each month in April of 2019 to having over 10,000 organic visitors from Google just 1.5 years later in October of 2020.

2. Silver Lining Scrubs went from averaging ~100 organic visitors from Google each month to having nearly 2,000 organic visitors from Google just 3 after partnering together. This led to an additional $3,000 in sales per month.
A Portland SEO consultant will likely audit your website and tell you what needs to be done. They won’t actually do the work.

On the other hand, a Portland SEO firm will also implement the SEO strategies for your business.
Most SEO companies in Portland, since they force you to sign a binding contract, don’t have to worry about this. If they don’t get you the results you want, they likely won’t work hard to change (since there’s not a big incentive).

On the other hand, if our clients don’t see results, then they’ll likely cancel (since we don’t force them to sign binding contracts). So, the livelihood of our business depends on getting our clients results.
There are four main reasons:

1. We charge per project (not some obscure monthly retainer or hourly): therefore, you know exactly what you’re going to pay and exactly what you’re going to get out of it.

2. We don’t require clients to sign binding contracts: this forces us to get results for our clients – if we don’t get results, they’ll stop working with us.

3. We have dozens of case studies to prove our success (and we let you speak to our clients): this gives you peace of mind knowing that we’re Portland SEO experts. Any SEO company can tell you how awesome they are – but, by having access to our clients, you’ll be able to hear it from their own words.

4. Our team is made up of extremely talented women, many of which are military spouses. We care deeply about our team.
The cost of SEO in Portland, Oregon is totally dependent on which SEO agency you work with. Many agencies in Portland have minimums – meaning that if you don’t spend, say, at least $2,500 per month, then they won’t take you as a client.

Here’s what we can tell you. Our average Portland-based client spends ~ $850 per month. How does that stack up to other Portland SEO pros? Well, it’s about 50% less expensive on average.

Don’t believe us? Go out and get some quotes – we’re confident that the average quote will be close to $2,000 per month.
Portland SEO is the same as any other SEO in any other city in the United States. However, we treat every business’s SEO differently.

A local dentist in Portland, Oregon will likely need slightly different SEO strategies compared to a dentist in another city. Each business is unique and we treat them as such.
We do offer local SEO in Portland. Our professional team of 20+ specializes in local SEO. Our strategies help businesses get more local visibility, leading to more phone calls and online form submissions.

For example, below are 2 examples:

1. A local medical spa here in Portland saw 3x the phone calls in less than 60 days of working with us.

2. A local naturopathic doctor, in September of 2020 (before working with us) had 3 new patients from Google. Within 30 days, during the month of October (our first month of partnering together), they had 10 new patients from Google – that’s a 3x increase.
We encourage businesses to shop around. Get quotes and talk to as many Portland SEO agencies as possible.

Ask them to see previous case studies. Ask them if you can talk to their current clients. Ask them if they have binding contracts. Ask them their pricing. Ask them if they’ve worked with similar businesses to yours. Ask them exactly which actions they’ll take to help your business.

Then, based on all that information, it’ll be clear which company you should work with.
It totally depends on your business and your competitors. On average, our clients see tangible results (like an increase in phone calls, website traffic, etc) in less than 90 days.

However, for some local Portland businesses, we’ve helped them see results in less than 30 days.

If a Portland SEO firm promises your results, that’s a red flag and you should consider another company.

Most SEO marketing companies in Portland require that you sign a binding contract. We honestly think that this is unethical.

Why do we think it’s unethical? Once you sign a contract, that SEO company in Portland has no incentive to continue getting you results. They know that you have to pay every month.

We don’t operate that way. We need to earn your business each and every month by proving results.
