If you can't be easily and quickly found through a search, potential customers never even know you exist. It's as if you are closed on the internet.
Say you operate a flower shop downtown. Your old customers will probably search for your flower shop by name and order online or call to place an order. However, you need new customers.
New customers = growth = more profit.
Someone meeting up for a first date downtown will type "best flower shop downtown" or "dozen roses downtown". The business that shows up in the top of the results with the best website gains business and hopefully a new customer.
SEO or Search Engine Optimization is the name given to the task of ensuring your website is properly set up to rank higher in search engines and make your company, restaurant, church, or event visible to potential clients. It is a difficult task and requires professional attention.

Ever try to fix something and get to a place where a sticker warns you of the dangers of continuing? That's a good place to turn back before something bad happens! With SEO the wrong moves could actually end up hurting you in search results instead of improving your rating. Google, Bing, and other search engines are constantly changing the way they rank results. You are running a business and don't have time to keep up with the constant changes. You could cause damage by tweaking your own website or hiring the wrong person. That's where we come in!
Joshua began tackling SEO in 1999 when he worked for a software company.

Google had just been invented one year earlier and SEO was not a buzz word. Through trial and error Joshua figured out how to increase website hits and was hooked from that moment on at finding ways to improve website hits and turn searches into profits. Today Joshua uses instinct and knowledge along with some of the best SEO software and tracking systems money can buy.
