Websites and Content Writing to Maximize Search Engine Rankings
Chances are, you've found us on Google or Yahoo, and you're a real estate agent or small business looking for someone to help you put your website at the top of the search engines. Even if you are a local restaurant on a budget and not ready to invest a lot of money in a website, you still need an online presence. Most people don't even use a phone book these days! No matter what, if you've got a business, you MUST have a website. We're a website design, content writing, and SEO Company and we can help!
SEO and Content
The one thing that sets us apart from all the other website companies is that we will design even the smallest website so that you can add on to it later and it will be set up to be as completely search engine friendly as possible. Most other website companies try to produce a site as quickly as possible, and SEO (or search engine optimization) is a secondary consideration. Most of the companies in the Myrtle Beach area that claim to do SEO do little more than submit your site to a bunch of spam-producing directories or charge you by the month to do worthless link exchanges. By the time you find out that doesn't work, you've wasted hundreds of dollars. We are legendary in the Grand Strand area for SEO...having produced the top rankings of websites such as CondoLux, Myrtle Beach Condos.net, C21 The Harrelson Group, and many others. We've been at it since 2003, and we quietly go about doing it again and again.
Real Estate Marketing
If you are a real estate agent, and you've decided to invest the time and cost involved to make YOUR website the top ranking real estate site for your city, congratulations. You've taken the first step towards increasing your sales and letting buyers know that you are the best Realtor around. The experts agree that 80% of all property buyers research the area for a home or condo on the internet before they contact an agent to buy. Be sure your website is designed so your customers can find you, as well as exciting enough to make them choose you! Sadly, most real estate websites are never seen except through signage or pay-per-click ads. A well crafted real estate website at the top of Google's organic search results is nearly priceless.
Two of the best real estate sites we've helped to build outstanding content and marketing for include: Myrtle Beach Real Estate and Albuquerque Real Estate. The best results come from a combination of YOUR effort in providing photos, videos, and information to help us turn it into an engaging, customer pleasing testament to your abilities as their agent.

Search engine optimized Press Releases can benefit your website with the search engines more than any one single thing you can do. We can help you do these press releases and train you how to write in the way that best suits this type of media.
Real Estate Blogs are an absolute necessity to compete in today's internet market. Most other businesses will need a blog to help with SEO and sales, too. We can set up your free blog on Google's Blogger and in most cases tailor the look of it to match your website. Blogs are great tools for marketing, but you have to know how to write and link in them to benefit your site the most. We can get you started and train you in effective blogging. In Myrtle Beach, SEO is so competitive that you have to have a blog to even hope to show up on the search engines for popular search terms.
Myrtle Beach SEO - Beware of Local Companies Using Our Name!
SEO Web Design, or Search Engine Optimization, is a highly specialized business, which, though widely advertised, is seldom from a reputable company who can produce long term results. Several years ago, link exchanges and link directories were the principal method used to help rank a website. Unfortunately, most of the SEO companies that you find through advertising and email solicitation are still doing this, often utilizing labor from India or some third world country to send out spam emails, begging other real estate sites to do link reciprocation with their "clients". Not only does this no longer work, but you can seriously damage your website's standing with the search engines from doing it.
There are several local website companies in Myrtle Beach that are advertising themselves as "Myrtle Beach Web Design". One company even bought the domain name THE Myrtle Beach Web Design. Although some of these people make nice websites, and even have a lot of sites in their portfolio; these companies are riding on our name, reputation of search engine rankings, and misleading business owners. WE HAVE SEEN NO OTHER LOCAL companies THAT UNDERSTAND SEO. There are some that do - not many at all - and none of them are in Myrtle Beach or even on the east coast.
What Google Says
Website companies have all had to claim they have this knowledge to stay in business now. Almost none really do. If you want a "pretty" website, that is easy to come by. Just realize that's all you will get. Look on Google at the top ranked businesses and call them for a recommendation on SEO providers before you pay good money for nothing. ALL our business comes from referrals and we have more than we can handle. That should tell you plenty.
If we design your business website, or accept the challenge of improving the rank of your present one, we will utilize only "white hat" methods, and our services are based on CONTENT. This is not a monthly deal or a link buiding service like the other SEO services advertise - THAT NO LONGER WORKS - But rather we will set you up with the proper tools, make your site as "search engine friendly" as it can be, and train you or your employees how to continue to provide your site content and promotion. This is the ONLY method that will help you now and in the future. Your goal is to be found in the search engines and make your site a useful resource that your customers will return to and recommend to others. We can usually work with your present designer, or start from scratch and obtain this goal for you.
Myrtle Beach Web Design
A Complete Internet Marketing Campaign Company
Our company started in 2002, in North Myrtle Beach, SC, helping local businesses and restaurants. We found our niche in area vacation rental sites and
websites for real estate agents. We seldom advertise our services, post on forums which get the search engine staffer's attentions, or otherwise draw attention to ourselves or our clients in this way. A legitimate SEO company gains customers by word of mouth and does not have to email strangers or beg for customers. Try to remember that when you are shopping for an SEO web design service!
300 million people use Google on any given day. StatOwl's latest data found that Google was the most heavily used engine again through 2012 with 81% of the searches performed. Yahoo and Bing together produce around $17%. The National Board of Realtors has often said that over 80% of all real estate purchases begin online and take around 9 months to contract. What are you waiting for?
Your website and
real estate search engine optimization is an absolute necessity, and will cost you up front to create. Pay-per-click advertising may sound like a good idea at first, but the costs can be astronomical, and are never-ending. Search engine optimization offers an alternative to this endless expense, and it's been proven that the majority of people who use a search engine will choose a regular "organic" listing over the ones marked as Sponsored Ads. Having a website without search engine placement is like having an expensive billboard sign that faces the wrong way. Not Very Smart.
