There is a huge possibility that thousands of people are searching for the services and goods you offer, everyday.

Hi, my name is James

I help websites rank higher on search engines by performing the industry’s most advanced SEO strategies. As an SEO specialist, my services involve optimizing websites so that they can get more free traffic from the search engines. I provide strategic advice to beat the competition. I also also perform professional SEO implementation and onpage tactics to ensure sites are fully indexable and meet modern-day search engine guidelines (on-page SEO).

Besides making websites the most relevant choice for its target users’ search queries, I also help them gain online popularity through strategic link building and promotions (off-page SEO).


Buy An 1 Hour SEO Consultation Now

While I do offer various SEO services at different price points, the most common form of consulting that my clients request is just one hour long call discussing what tasks need to be accomplished ASAP.

Expert Consulting

Do you need a custom plan specific to your business, or help understanding the basics of SEO? I've taught webmasters, CEO's, assistants, etc. how to successfully perform SEO. On top of that, all consultations can come with a screen recorded conference call for you and/or your team to reference in the future.

SEO Specialist

Occasionally, a client just needs me to fix something that broke ASAP. Even though I'm an expert SEO consultant, I'm still a expert SEO specialist first. If you need a professional to roll up their sleeves and help you accomplish a quick task, I'm your man. All specialist & consulting services come with a detailed itemized report.

Why am I the best?

How can I make such a bold claim to be the best? Why in the world is SEO by the Hour the best in the industry? How do I know that I am a better option than my competitors?

These are legitimate questions to ask me (or to ask your potential SEO service provider). But in short, I have the experience, I offer a unique approach, and I get results that can’t be found anywhere else. If your SEO company isn’t a leading service provider, how could you expect them to help your website become one?
