Welcome to what is already being referred to as the "Verti Group International a.k.a. SEO Seattle®

"Think Tank".

Here we will be sharing methods of Search Engine Optimization that are used to support our search engine optimization clients at Verti Group International's, SEO Seattle®.

With ranking factors that today include such elements as "Font Size" to be an important ranking factor, you may be surprised by what you will find here.

Verti Group International a.k.a. SEO Seattle® understands that it can be a daunting and a bit overwhelming when considering the hundreds of elements that can be found linked to a website's ranking in search, and we intend to only share those methods of search engine optimization that are supported by first Google and applied at Verti Group International a.k.a. SEO Seattle®.

Important to note is that unless an SEO method meets both Google Guidelines and our own in-house policy requirements, you won't find it here.

Also, an important note is that we consider the "domain" and website to dictate the exact needs for a successful search engine optimization project.

* IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE* Methods of SEO that may be found shared as part of a comment, should not be considered approved by Google and/or Verti Group International a.k.a. SEO Seattle® and therefore should be carefully considered before using.

Google just announced on their official Webmaster blog that after a period of development and testing, they are now rolling out an update to the Penguin algorithm in all languages.

Careful, this does not mean that the affects from PENGUIN will instantly be felt, crawled, and scored today. The rollout and its affects on a websites rankings will in many cases take weeks.

Read the official Google announcement here...

Is Google counting a respective domains use of keywords in Anchor Text placed upon it's internal pages?

"We do use internal links to better understand the context of content of your sites."
John Mueller, Google Analyst

"Internal Linking" is considered an element of SEO that should be used sparingly and when employed should directly support "User Experience".

VGI SEO grades the ranking influence of this method to be "10". We use a 1-10 metric with "10" being the highest grade possible.

Google's New Accelerated Mobile Page platform, more commonly known as Google AMP is all about making your internet faster for you. 
It makes the web pages load in a rocket speed. 

The speed of an AMP page, when accessed using a mobile device, is achieved in two ways; 

First, it requires web developers to use a
narrow set of web technologies to create pages.
Most JavaScript is forbidden, which, as we’ve
noted before, is a really good way to make web
pages load faster. 

Second, it serves pages from its own servers, at least, 
when you visit an AMP page via a Google search.

To use AMP, you create an alternate version of
your site that conforms to the specifications
published by the AMP project. These standards
are a lot like traditional HTML, but pared down
to what Google considers being bare

Typically you’ll give your AMP-optimized 
site an additional and separate address, for example: *If you use
WordPress, there’s actually a plugin that will
automatically create these alternate versions
and help Google find them.* But you could, theoretically, 
just replace your whole site with AMP optimized 
pages and it would still work in most modern web
browsers though it might be a bit drab.

*NOTE: We have encountered some issues in 
using the AMP plugin on some sites found hosted on a
windows server.*

We also invite you to view our "SEO Seattle: official Blog - by Verti Group International" which is AMP enabled using the WordPress AMP Plugin.

For your consideration, we have Included below a recent post made on our Official SEO Seattle® Blog, which is also utilizing the WordPress /AMP Plugin.

Would you like to know more about the search engine optimization methods used at VGI SEO?

Just a reminder... This post is more than just Google Mobile Update. Maybe I should have titled it... ? - David Freid - Google+

Something worth considering...

Many of the SEO company websites that appear on "first-page search results" for an SEO company related search, have thousands, even millions of backlinks.


That has fewer than any other top first page results that we have analyzed.

Here are some of the search terms that were included in the analysis. "SEATTLE SEO COMPANY" , "LOS ANGELES SEO COMPANY", "LA SEO COMPANY" and "BEST SEATTLE SEO COMPANY".

We thought this a worthy consideration for anyone involved in SEO or that are considering search engine optimization (SEO).

(Verti Group International a.k.a. SEO Seattle® takes pride in being at the front of everything Google. That said, here is a rare find for us and a worthy share.)

A very enlightening find!

I just found out that you can link (use) a website that you DO NOT OWN for your Google My Business listing.

Earlier today, I was part of a discussion at the "Google My Business" community. I was previously unaware of this and I do plan to immediately make this information useful for a small segment of our Verti Group International, a.k.a., SEO Seattle® clients that are currently without websites.

The idea that we can use sites, like Linkedin and Facebook, in a Google My Business listing can provide many benefits.

The biggest benefit for many is that this will speed up the timeline linked to a client's online visibility. Time is money. No longer needing to wait for their SEO'ed website (they simply take longer) to be fully developed before aligning with a verified GMB listing is awesome!

Below, you will find a segment of the conversation for your further consideration.

I hope it proves to be as enlightening to you!

Happy Holidays!

When determining the correct ranking postion of a website we have many tools supporting a first page presence for a respective search term, (i.e. SEM Rush, Pro Rank Tracker, Small SEO Tools, etc.)

So again these offsite tools are reporting positions on first and second page for the respective search terms.

When I try to find from my PC, I can't find on the first six pages.

Can anyone help shed any light?

Certainly want to thank you for any consideration.

Thank you for taking the time to share and what made me think twice about, "Are you signed in to Google.. ".

It made me question if it could be that I overlooked an authorized program needing to pull analytic data from my G account?

I am not in the loop for such logins.

I will update this thread with any updates. Could be a day or two?

Thanks again +StretchImagination for what may prove my solution?

Google Maps Update!

Here is a comScore article you may want to consider when planning search engine optimization or website development in 2016.

VGI a.k.a. SEO Seattle® routinely optimizes it's clients websites for "Mobile Search". Some of the more common Mobile SEO fixes include load time, font and media optimization, code sculpting to name a few.

We have been recommending that our clients employ a mobile strategy as early as 2012 when we first publicly shared on our Blog, " search is considered a necessity by most savvy business owners." This was about a year before Google announced that having your website "Mobile Friendly" was to be a Google search ranking benefit. Bing followed the same path shortly after.

If the title of this article does not spark an interest in reviewing your websites mobile reediness, you probably do not own a website that needs more traffic. 

Mobile shopping up 50%-60% season-to-date

Gian Fulgoni, Executive Chairman & Co-Founder of comScore, discusses spending this year, and the impact social networking sites have on shopping trends.

We have been working with Verti Group International/SEO Seattle for approximately one year. They have been remarkable at getting our company listed on the first page for seach listings--something no one else we have worked with has been able to do. They are very responsive--whenever I reach out to them with any questions and/or changes, their response is immediate! After working with many different SEO firms, this is the first time we have ever worked with a company that has made us feel like they actually know who we are and care about our business!

Terry E Lumsden, you are a model SEO client. I will never forget one of our many meetings which I was led to a conference room where stacks of folders were found waiting. Each folder contained documents concerning those vendors which were perceived by your firm to provide support in one way or another to your law firms online visibility. You may re-call, we shaved more than my monthly retainer that day. ( : A very sincere thank you for your kind review. Most of all, thank you for your trust and providing us with the opportunity to take the SEO chair and be involved with every decision that might be linked to your website. YES, I really can't explain how that this type of trust allows us to provide the most optimal of SEO possible. Simply, "BIG" Thank You, Terry!

In early 2015, we contracted David Freid of SEO Seattle to provide search engine optimization services for our website. We have had previous SEO companies try to increase our visibility on the major web search platforms… All with mixed results. Some of those were multiyear projects where grand promises were made up front but the results were not anywhere near what was promised. Additionally, as those projects evolved and the results were not forthcoming, each company solicited greater funding to try to accomplish the initial promises that were not attained. From the start David was honest and open in his approach. He laid out his goals and how he proposed to attain them. We service 3 counties in the Seattle metro area and our website has 14 geo targeted cities. The initial goal was to improve visibility in the Seattle and Bellevue metro areas and then increase visibility is other cities. We are now in a strong first page position for both of those targeted areas and are starting to target other cities within our marketing area. We highly recommend SEO Seattle and David Freid. If you are looking for honesty, a successful SEO program, and a strong adherence to “white hat” SEO procedures, then look no further. You will not be disappointed! Sincerely, Cathy Cunningham Owner / Maid Services
