Google SEO is no joke. I know that now, but I never paid much attention to search engine optimization until, after four years of being in business the traffic to my website (and my livelihood) began to shrivel. Since the majority of the traffic to the site came from Google and, as it turned out, Google was turning off the firehose in a major way, I desperately went looking for a Google SEO expert to help me out. What I found was 180fusion, an SEO firm that literally brought my site back from the brink.
Seeing my traffic and income dwindle day after day was one of the scariest things I’ve ever gone through. If you happen to find yourself in a similar situation to the one I faced recently, let me assure you that there is definitely hope. If your Google traffic suddenly dries up there is something that can be done about it. It’s not the end of your site and/or business.
When I went looking for a Google SEO expert a few months back I reached out to every listing I could find (on Google, ironically). Only one firm bothered to get back to me: 180fusion. Perhaps they were the only SEO firm that wasn’t scared off by the details I sent (or the only one confident enough that they could handle the situation). Maybe they just have superior customer service. Maybe I just got lucky. Actually, it was probably all of those things — but it’s an important detail because if you’re looking for a reliable SEO partner you need one that is good at communication.
It didn’t take long for Brad from 180fusion to setup a phone meeting with me (despite the fact that I reached out during a major holiday weekend). He took a genuine interest in my business, was very knowledgable and above all was super-friendly. Just talking to Brad immediately put my mind at ease about the Google SEO situation.
It didn’t take long for 180fusion to get to work. They told me that within a few weeks I should expect to see some improvement in our Google rankings and sure enough I did. Thank goodness. A glimmer of hope! Over the next couple of months our traffic slowly began to recover. A game plan was created, errors got fixed, adjustments were made and the site marched on.
Looking back I ...
