Oregon Web Solutions is a Portland OR based company that specializes in search engine optimization. You might have found us by searching “SEO Portland” in Google. Our philosophy is that ranking your company website and Google Business Listing organically is the best ROI on your marketing dollars. Spending money on traditional advertising mediums such as radio, TV, and print campaigns can have a positive effect and provide your company increased exposure. The problem with these traditional advertising videos is once your budget has run out the advertising stops. When running a Google Ad Words PPC campaign you run into the same problem, and as you budget dries up so do the clicks to your website. Rankings your website organically in Google on other big search engines provides results long after the payments end. In most cases, If you stay active on your website then your search engine rankings will stay consistent, and in some cases even improve. Another factor to consider is that most web searchers do not click on paid listings, and will instead opt for the natural listings. There are two main reasons for this:

Organic listings provide better results for searchers and better conversions for website owners.
Searchers are naturally distrusting of advertising in general and will avoid paid listings if possible.

This is why we believe the best use for your marketing budget is to focus on rankings your website naturally instead of paid campaigns. Achieving organic search engine rankings is not an easy task and that’s why it’s best to hire an experienced search engine optimization company. Computer literate small business owners that wish to attempt this undertaking should be forewarned that on occasion improper SEO work can cause more harm than good. If you choose to go it alone you should follow these rules to insure that you get the best results.

  • Only add high quality, relevant, and unique written content to your website.

So if you go to google and type in “SEO Portland Oregon” Who pops up? I love that test as we pride ourselves in being at the top of our game. You want someone who can show results not just talk the talk. Actions speak louder than words. We have a target and we hit it or we don’t quit until we do. I would think that you would want someone with that kind of tenacity on your side.

We hit road bumps like anyone else, but we don’t give up and we fix whatever scenario that might be. We strive to make things great. We would be deluding ourselves to say everything goes perfect all the time. Just like life it doesn’t. So what does your company do for you when things do go bad. Do they curl up, or fight on? We would like to think that you want a fighter in your corner and that is us. We pick one profession per one city/town and that is it for that profession. So if you are a dentist in Portland Oregon and we work with you, then we no longer will accept a dentist for all of Portland. That should be common practice, but I know that there are companies that will take on anyone and everyone creating inner ranking wars which they profit from the whole way. That is not how we work.

When we give a timeline for your project (which is based on ranking difficulty) but let’s say 6 months which is average. We need that full 6 months to rank properly. To push things fast will only get you into trouble. Google now has a standard 30 day period where any work we may do won’t even show rankings wise for 30 days. In the past, this process was a little bit faster, but it is purposely slowed down to prevent spam and black hat ranking tricks. Both of which could damage your site for good if done wrong. This is why we stick with the tried and true white hat techniques that take longer, but give you a more long-term power the will be around for years to come. We all want speed, but at times there is a cost to moving too fast.

If you live in another state, we would still be happy to work with you. Where you live these days isn’t even a issue when it comes to SEO. Web conferences, phone calls and Skype make everything possible from anywhere in the world. That being said, there is still an easy plane flight to anywhere you need to go. If you would still like to work with someone in your local area, let us give you a few pointers to help out. Take your city or biggest neighboring city and type that with SEO “Portland SEO”, and see who comes up. the top 3 will all be strong. If you would like to weed it down further, add more like “Portland SEO Company”, or include the state “Portland Oregon SEO Company”. Normally a top company will be in the top 3 for all of these. You can feel safe if they are. Not to mention, they are outranking others in their field so you can be sure they are good at what they do.

If you would like to look into more with us, click out Discovery Form, and fill it out to your best ability. This will give us the information we need to give you a more accurate analysis of your website and a plan for future growth. We will send you a custom video analysis that will go over your site and how we can help improve your rankings.

We are excited for the future and look forward to working with you.
