Why Are We The Best Danville, CA SEO Company?

I’m not going to try to sell you that we are the best SEO agency in Danville, CA. We’re not. We’re actually located in Pleasanton 🙂 . I’m just going to tell you how I got into SEO after working in TV, and how my story might be applicable to your business.

(BTW You can just watch this video. The text is just for SEO 😉.)


I have been doing Internet stuff for forever. In 1993, I launched Showtime Networks’ first website:


In 1995, I joined NBC’s first Internet division. I ran NBC.com when it was still weird to see URLs on TV. I did a lot of those early “Hey! Watch TV and do something on this website” stuff:

In 2003, I helped get InsiderPages, an early version of Yelp, off the ground. Someone told me about SEO and we got pretty good at it. At our peak, we had over 5 million monthly visitors. That enabled us to raise $5 million from Sequoia Capital and Softbank. That allowed us to hire a head of Marketing who re-designed the site. But I didn’t know what I didn’t know about SEO. When we launched the new site, all the Google traffic disappeared.

And I got fired.InsiderPages Acquired by CitySearch



The day I got fired I met the head of LATimes.com for a drink. He was excited because he just got approval to redesign their site. “What are you doing for SEO?” I asked. He had no idea what I was talking about.

I explained what had happened to me and he kind of freaked out. He asked if I would be up for doing some SEO consulting for the LA Times. Well, I certainly didn’t have anything else to do, so they became my first SEO client.

That was 18 years ago.

Since then, we have worked with hundreds of Bay Area businesses big and small – like Mancini’s Sleepworld, LogoBoss, & SideTracks – to help them get more customers from Google via SEO and paid search.

Long story short, I have been in your shoes. I know how frustrating and ridiculous SEO can be.

And I know how critical succeeding at it can be to your business.

I know your job may depend on it.

Anyhow, if you want to set up a call to discuss, please get in touch. I can tell you all about our various programs, pricing, etc., and I’ll be happy to give you some free advice about your website.

And I won’t try to sell you something you don’t need, or understand.

Don’t read that stuff below. It’s purely for SEO purposes.
