A Cleveland SEO company with a national reputation

You may not have heard of us around the greater Cleveland metro area. That’s probably because we specialize in serving enthusiast markets across the United States and Canada.

We’re often a source for automotive data and industry analysis. We’ve supplied data and analysis for national news outlets such as NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and Bloomberg Businessweek. Even though we’re a marketing agency based here, we’ve still been listed in Direct Marketing News magazine’s Top US Agencies Report.

Digital marketing Cleveland: paid search, organic search and programmatic marketing

Sometimes “SEO” (Search Engine Optimization) is used as a generic term for “marketing a website online.” To be precise, SEO refers to the process of optimizing and improving your organic, or non-paid, rankings in search engine results. The goal is to have your company show up as high as possible in the rankings on the search engine results page (SERP).

On the other hand, PPC (Pay Per Click) refers to paid search ads, either text ads on the SERP or display ads that appear on other websites, and the process to manage that advertising. Managing PPC services includes managing the marketing budget, the spend, building out online campaigns and keywords and measuring the results. It also involved extensive testing to ensure maximum ROI.

One cool thing about digital marketing in Cleveland is the ability to target your ads geographically. Your ads can appear in the Cleveland DMA which includes much of northern Ohio, or your ads can selectively target Cuyahoga County for example, or neighborhoods or even Cleveland ZIP codes. We can also target areas around Cleveland using a radius around any geographic location (sometimes a radius may include a large part of Lake Erie, but don’t worry, walleye usually don’t click on ads). This geographic targeting reaches many suburbs to the west, south or east, and along the lake shore.

SEO or PPC, what you should know about using both together

Whether you’re looking at the greater Cleveland market or a nationwide audience, the concept of using SEO combined with PPC are basically the same. Organic marketing of your website, is enhanced when combined with PPC paid search campaigns. We’re commonly asked about this because some people have assumed you don’t need both but we’ve done several case studies on this, as has Google, and if you do some searching online you’ll find many more case studies on this topic.

Combining SEO with PPC results in incremental traffic to your website and incremental sales, one does not detract or interfere with the other. One reason for this is the concept of SERP “real estate.” We like to occupy as much SERP real estate for our clients as we can, which bumps competitors off the first page to the second or third page. Well executed social marketing campaigns are also a way of taking up more SERP real estate and we use social marketing primarily for an SEO function/purpose.
