Search Engine Optimization
SEO is one of the most effective marketing tools available for businesses. It is extremely valuable because it brings pre-qualified leads and customers to your business. Customers are searching for you and your services. You, for example, most likely searched “Portland SEO Company” and look what you found! SEO eliminates the need for all those beautiful in-person sales pitches and who doesn’t love that?SEE our SEO Services
On-site SEO is an important aspect for all websites. First and most importantly, HTML tag optimization, HTML tags have certain meanings and use cases. Each tag needs to be used properly in order to fully optimize your website. Some HTML tags have more prominence and weight on your site rankings than others. We make sure the on-site optimization is done correctly and has the appropriate keyword usage sprinkled throughout the content. All of this provides your users with a friendly experience and search engines the ability to index your site properly. When on-site SEO is done correctly and combined with powerful off-site SEO, the results can be stunning.
Localized search is the gateway to online visibility for small and medium businesses who only serve a particular area and is a key component to our Portland SEO efforts. Recently, search engines have moved more towards local search results, opening the doors even further to great opportunities for local businesses everywhere. Businesses can now leverage their location and gain relevant visits and potential customers.View Our Local SEO Services
More and more people are performing searches on mobile devices. As the trend continues it is important that your website and SEO are ready. The way we prepare a site for mobile-first is to make sure the website can be viewed properly on a mobile device, sometimes this is a simple as updating the viewport on a website. In other cases, this may mean building a responsive site. Once the website is ready to be viewed on mobile, we optimize the site for local search, searches centered around a location or area. Furthermore, we optimize pages for “Near Me” searches.
Expert tip – Use retargeting Ads for mobile.
Along the lines of having a site ready for mobile and local search, Google has made site speed a ranking factor, although a very minor one, it’s becoming more important for a website to load quickly. Using various plugins and some minor dev fixes we speed up pages slowing your website down.

Basic CRO is making sure you have a phone number at the top of your page and a form prominently placed. Beyond the basics, we implement website eye-tracking or screen recording to get an understanding of how a visitor engages with your site.

OurPROVEN SEO FRAMEWORK Has Helped Countless Portland Based Business Achieve Results.
Effective SEO Framework
The desire to fuel your results is the core of what has driven us to create the most effective framework for Portland SEO and ranking locally in the Portland area. With more than 10 years in the SEO industry and roots beyond, we know what it takes to rank in one of the largest metro areas in North Carolina. By focusing on what we know works, we have time-tested and proven our strategy through the many industries found in Portland.
Your website should be as unique as your business and our framework allows us to customize our approach accordingly. No SEO campaign is the same, but they hold fast to the core principles that have generated results for our Portland clients and ourselves alike. These core principles are: Technical SEO, On-Site SEO, Content, and Link Building.
Consistency Is Key
“I talked with four SEO companies. Firestarter was the only one that actually listened and created a custom proposal for me. I was looking for a long-term partner that I could bounce ideas off and grow with. Firestarter fit the bill!”
ANALYZE AND AUDIT
The initial status of your SEO is critical. Gathering a full understanding of your website and what marketing tactics have been executed in the past gives us the details needed to create a successful, customized blueprint for success around your desired results. As we explore your website’s content and link profile on a deeper level we are able to pinpoint any critical obstacles that may exist.
PLAN AND STRATEGIZE
After gathering the information from our in-depth audit, we create the roadmap to fuel your results. While we do follow a tried and true framework for implementation, each client and each SEO campaign is unique and requires special attention. With this in mind, the fuel we use for results is uniquely crafted to fit the needs of the campaign itself. The foundation of our SEO campaigns are centered around keywords. We then design an advanced link building strategy around these keywords and what links the domain lacks.
Once the foundation is established and we have a comprehensive understanding of the opportunity your domain possesses, we begin the implementation phase. We start with the essential on-site SEO elements, including title tags, meta descriptions, site architecture, interlinking pages, and more, all while creating unique, engaging, and highly linkable content. This focus lets results accelerate initially and sets the stage for continued success with the support of our efforts.
Your link profile is similar to a book of references with Google. Our natural and authoritative link building campaigns rely on a quality over quantity mentality. Most of the time spent on link building centers around creating unique and useful content, and then finding relevant websites which Google trusts to place content on. We constantly monitor your link building campaign for maximum effectiveness.
MONITOR & REPORT
The best systems in the world are nothing if they lack transparency and an advanced SEO campaign is no different. We want to give you the opportunity to have ownership of your campaign and our monthly reports and reporting dashboard do just that. Our custom monthly reports feature rankings, traffic, new links, task reports and more. Each of our clients also has regular access to their reporting dashboard to view different time frames and instant results. This process allows you to understand the efforts taking place within the campaign, and allows us to fine tune your campaign on the fly.
