Answering Your Top Questions

What is an SEO firm?

An SEO firm partners with businesses to increase their visibility in search engines, like Google - mainly Google.

When you increase your visibility, that means you aim to position your business on the first page of SERPs for terms that customers search to find a service or product like yours.


The ultimate goal is to increase visitors to your site and in-turn have them sign up to your services or purchase your products.


There are two types of SEO services in San Diego and all around the world:

1. Black-Hat SEO agencies

2. White-Hat SEO agencies


The difference between the two is staggering. #1 focuses on 'tricking' Google into placing your business on the first page - which will ultimately lead to your business's online demise and penalties by the search engine giant.


#2 aims to create a solid foundation for your business rooted in Google best practices and paves a way for long-term online success. At The Marketing Agency, we pride ourselves in providing clients with performance enhancing objectives.


That means we only conduct white-hat SEO in San Diego and beyond.

How can SEO grow your business?

The right San Diego SEO efforts can propel your brand into a space where consumers have direct visibility.

From there, building trust with users is crucial to building credibility and safeguarding customer loyalty. As an SEO marketing agency, our San Diego SEO experts dive deep into your business and industry to extract valuable data we can apply to our SEO science.

Once the data is plugged in, we're able to build your brand value through targeted efforts that gather solid opportunities to acquire market share. All in all, SEO is a powerful tool used buy businesses both big and small to welcome more users to their digital doorstep and ultimately increase conversions.

Is SEO really necessary?

A website or eCommerce store without SEO is like opening up shop in a city with no residents. SEO is the tv and newspaper ads of the digital age along with a very strong word of mouth effect thanks to social media.

Over the years, giants like Google and Facebook have been making it increasingly more difficult for brands to showcase their businesses online - but in different ways.

Google's main customer is their users - therefore, any brand that can appeal to Google users, will fall under Google's good graces. This of course, must be done with quality and value at the forefront of your SEO efforts. 'Tricking' users with black-hat (unethical) tactics may propel you to the top for a short period of time, but that success is not quantifiable and will lead to your online demise quickly.


Following Google best practices means that you are appealing to the right customer by offering value and filling intent.

Although this search giant has made ads more accessible to users in order to increase the number of businesses that spend on ads - there is still immense success to be made with organic search - and our San Diego SEO agency can help with that.

Facebook, on the other hand, greatly decreased organic success for its business users in an attempt to increase the amount of money spent on advertisement - and it worked.

What is the best SEO company?

The best San Diego SEO agency is one that follows these best practices:


1. Never conduct 'black-hat'(unethical) SEO tactics

2. Offer complete transparency to clients

3. Take full accountability of performance

4. Offer a holistic view in order to provide the best results

5. Pioneers new strategies under Google best practices

6. Follows the data as opposed to 'gut feelings' or other non-quantifiable measures

7. Follows through with deliverables and aims to over-perform

8. Genuinely cares about their contribution to your business

9. Follows proven and tactical strategic framing

What is a good price for SEO?

A good price for SEO in San Diego is different than what the average price for SEO is.


San Diego SEO with The Marketing Agency will range between $1500 to $15,000 USD per month. It's important to also distinguish deliverables within these budgets.


Know what you're receiving within the budget that your agency is charging you.

Beware of quantity agencies who increase their client roster, charge over $500, and have little to no intention on putting much effort into your business's success.


How can you tell a quality San Diego SEO agency from a quantity focused one? Here are a few red flags to be aware of:


→ They use complicated marketing jargon with no explanation

→ The agency stops responding after you send the initial payment

→ They promise results without showcasing how they plan to achieve them

→ Your requests for in-depth understanding of deliverables go unanswered

→ They say they don't want to 'bore' you with the details

→ Their contract deliverables include 'seo optimization' with no context
