SEO is the key to unlocking the power of search engines and making your voice heard on the internet.

The success of all your online marketing efforts relies on the foundation and backbone of technical SEO. With the evolution of search engines, having a technically suitable website has become increasingly crucial. Without a solid technical foundation, efforts to optimize your website for search engines and improve its user experience will be hampered. Technical SEO is an essential aspect of website development that involves ensuring that search engine crawlers can easily navigate and index your website. Our team of technical SEO experts can help ensure that your website is optimized for search engine crawlers, providing a strong foundation for all your online marketing efforts.
Small businesses need a strong online presence to attract local customers. As an award-winning SEO company, we specialize in local search engine optimization for businesses nationwide. SEO is the process of optimizing your website to increase organic traffic from search engines like Google. Our comprehensive approach involves strategic changes to your content, photos, links, and more to boost your rankings and display your site at the top of Google search results.
Ranking on the first page of search engines takes time and patience, and requires a responsive mobile website and a comprehensive traffic strategy. Our local SEO experts understand how to place your business at the top of search results pages, making it easily accessible to potential customers searching online. When done correctly, SEO can help your business attract more customers and grow its online presence.
Our SEO approach, developed over 12 years, includes a customer research and competitive analysis phase, followed by the improvement of current assets to enhance performance, creation of new content assets for accelerated growth, link building within and outside of the site, and continuous analysis, reporting, and strategy adjustments. While these steps may seem familiar, it is the intricate process within each one that counts. By implementing this approach, we can help your website improve its search engine rankings and drive more traffic to your site.
Attracting and converting your digital audience into paying customers is crucial to the success of your eCommerce business, whether you have one product or hundreds. Utilizing SEO as a solution to engage and convert users throughout your CPG sales funnel can help you achieve sales targets and increase your brand’s authority. Crafting a shopper-focused and value-led SEO action plan can create a sustainable and cost-effective asset that generates organic results.

RankHammer was established by two digital marketing experts who met while working in a highly competitive vertical for SEO. Steve’s background in engineering and big-brand marketing, combined with Nathan’s experience in programming and large advertising agencies, created a unique leadership team that can deliver strategic solutions to businesses of all sizes. Our expertise lies in solving complex problems that have a technical component, especially projects that require advanced analytics or automation. We focus on a holistic and long-term approach that goes beyond mere tricks that could disappear at any moment. Our comprehensive SEO services cover all aspects of the process, from technical issues to high-quality content, ensuring that our clients receive the best results possible.
With billions of Google searches happening daily, your potential customers are actively searching for solutions to their problems. Our tailored local SEO strategy can help you tap into this search volume and drive more revenue. We start by gaining a comprehensive understanding of your company, competitors, and industry to craft a personalized plan of attack, rather than a generic one-size-fits-all approach. Our team uses ethical, white-hat tactics to execute this strategy, focusing on both short-term opportunities and long-term sustainable growth. However, SEO is not a one-time solution but rather a continuous process that requires constant analysis and improvement to keep up with algorithm updates and competition. We work with you to stay ahead of the curve and maximize your search engine visibility.
Effective SEO today requires a comprehensive approach that optimizes all aspects of your website, including technical components, content, links, credibility signals, and user engagement metrics. As competition and reach expand, excelling in each area becomes increasingly vital. Our SEO Services target the critical factors that will elevate your business’s rankings for the most important keywords. Properly executed SEO delivers long-term benefits, accumulating value for your website over time. Unlike pay-per-click campaigns, our SEO initiatives provide sustainable value. The updates, pages, business listings, and processes we develop for your business will remain in your control indefinitely. We believe in empowering our clients with the knowledge and tools they need to achieve enduring success in the constantly evolving digital landscape.
To become proficient in SEO, it takes continuous learning and practical experience in keeping up with Google’s algorithms. Keywords research, on-page SEO tags, backlink building, and local SEO are all part of an SEO freelancer or agency’s vocabulary. However, presenting a list of tasks is insufficient to achieve clear and measurable goals. We go further by proposing a strategic plan that includes a hypothesis, diagnosis, KPIs, and a roadmap to achieving our defined objectives. This approach enables us to report progress accurately, and we challenge ourselves to reach our destination or adjust the plan accordingly.
Achieving success in your business requires effective SEO, and our team has the expertise to build a strategy that delivers results. With years of experience and technical knowledge in areas such as link building and content creation, we can develop a custom SEO plan that works for you, no matter what industry you’re in. Our approach focuses on identifying the most significant opportunities to expand your digital footprint and increase your visibility, providing the foundation for sustained growth and success.
To achieve the top ranking on Google through SEO, selecting the right keywords is crucial. While it’s possible to reach the top position for niche keywords, it may take more effort to rank for broader terms. Highway One Marketing Marketing can help you select relevant keywords that are frequently searched by Google users, so you can get more traffic and increase sales. Keep in mind, SEO success isn’t just about reaching the top spot for certain keywords, but rather driving relevant traffic to your website. Our team uses ethical, long-term strategies that can provide sustained growth for your business.

"When I was tasked with hiring someone to help with our marketing, I turned to Credo. They introduced us to two vetted pros who specialized in what we need. Credo saved us a lot of time and money by getting us the right pros the first time."
"We contacted Credo and after a 30 minute discussion where they asked deeper questions to clarify our needs and current setup (including other agencies we already work with), they introduced us to two agencies who ended up being a perfect fit for us."
"This was my first time using Credo and I will never hire another agency without them. I needed a PPC agency and I needed one FAST. Credo got me 3 discovery calls in a day with some seriously high quality companies. The hardest part was choosing between them. If you're going to hire an agency, use Credo. Seriously."
"All 3 candidates were awesome and I really appreciated the process. Using Credo blew my mind in terms of saving time, 3 super high quality candidates, and we got a lot out of hearing their various approaches."
Credo helps companies find and hire the right marketing partner.
A company can be polished and professional and still not deliver great results, so we specifically ask each network applicant about their clients and results they have driven.
We ask every applicant for:
Quality of work delivered is extremely important to us and extremely important to you.
Our professional vetting involves the following:
Every network applicant must also pass our culture screening to make sure they're aligned with our standards.

All Franchise SEO Companies on Credo have passed our initial three step and 28-point vetting process before joining, and are continuously vetted via client feedback. When you speak with the Franchise SEO Companies from our network, you can trust they're the best we can find.
"GetCredo.com is one of the few trustworthy places to find a good SEO."
"After working with a number of clients who had been burned by illicit consultants, industry veteran John Doherty was inspired to create [a company] that would help companies find reputable search marketing and SEO professionals."
"I don't know of anyone who puts as much care and attention into properly vetting and matching SEO projects with vendors than Credo."
Prioritize agencies who have experience with the channel or channels you need help with. If you have multiple needs, we recommend prioritizing a full service firm who can do all channels as opposed to hiring individual agencies or contractors for each channel. This will reduce the number of providers you have to contact as well as the management overhead once they are hired.
Note - at Credo we match you with providers from our network who both fit your marketing channel needs and have experience with your type of business (SaaS, Ecommerce, etc). Where possible, we also match you with providers who have experience in your industry.
We recommend speaking with multiple agencies to verify that they have the experience you require and that you like speaking with them. Culture fit between you and your agency is the unspoken factor we find that determines if an engagement will be successful. We then recommend that you conduct longer strategy sessions (about an hour) with 2-4 agencies to dive deeper on your needs with their team.
Note - Credo schedules the initial discovery calls for you with agencies from our network.
Once you’ve gone deeper with 2-4 agencies, ask for proposals that you can review that include scope, timeline, cost, and terms. We recommend that you use our Agency Reviewer resource to make it easier. Some agencies may have a separate contract with terms and conditions, which is fine.
Once you receive proposals, you can negotiate back with agencies. The most common things to negotiate back on are scope and timeline. If ideal budget is above your ability to pay, see if you can reduce the scope to get the project within budget while understanding the tradeoffs.
Finally, make a decision about who to work with and commit for a period of time that is long enough to know if you’re able to get results but not so long that it traps you into something that isn’t working. We recommend that you agree to at minimum a 3 month contract, and ideally a 6 month contract with a three month out.
Make sure healthy expectations are set and your agency fully understands your objectives. The best results are created when you have alignment with your agency around your business goals.
