Our Clients Say it Best

Simplified Web Design was simply AWESOME! I had a pretty complicated and unique request for a website that included an online store with digital downloads. I didn’t even know where to start. Melissa and her team put together a beautiful website that looked simple, but was complex on the back end.She trained me how to manage the website, and to use the backend to fulfill custom orders. She set up the SEO plan so that my website became discoverable on the first page within a week, which is almost unheard of. Melissa had many ideas for how to make the site better, and we executed. I am very proud of the work that we did, and look forward to using this website to launch my new business.I would recommend Simplified Website Design to any business. Thank you Melissa!”

What’s the difference between local and national SEO?

Local SEO covers the specific areas your business operates in, helping you show up in more location-based searches, reaching the exact audience you want to. In the last few years, “near me” Google searches have increased by 500%, so having a locally optimized site can help those “near me” searches find you.

With national SEO, you are optimized to come up in searches across the country, instead of to a specific location. This means that you will be competing with more companies overall than if you are optimized for local searches.

Responsive and Mobile Ready Websites

What does a mobile ready website have to do with SEO? Turns out, a lot!

We design websites with multiple devices in mind. In this day and age, if your site isn’t responsive for mobile phones and tablets, it will not show up in search results. We make sure that your site is visible to your customer.

Reputation Management

A big part of local SEO is managing your reputation online. Reviews are everything these days, and most people will check the reviews of a business before they buy a product or get services from them. Therefore, having too many negative reviews can be detrimental to your reputation.

We can help manage your online reputation and help you get back on track if you have had problems in the past that are hurting your SEO.


There are three reasons why SEO can be expensive:
  • It takes time to deliver results; there is no easy button to make it happen overnight.
  • SEO requires a lot of work. Moving you up in the rankings means we have to understand where you are currently at, why you are there, and how we can improve upon what you have.
  • You need an expert to get real results in your SEO. If you really want to improve your SEO, you cannot go for whoever is cheaper; you get what you pay for.
If you do not have someone on staff that is trained in SEO, do not try to do it in house. SEO is complex, and best left to the experts.
Yes! We will conduct keyword research to find the best keywords for your site and incorporate them into the design.

We’ll work as quickly as possible to get you back up to your previous ranking or higher!

No. If you are being told this by other SEO companies, you may want to avoid them. SEO is complex, so a guarantee like that means they may cut corners to get you there; eventually, that will end up hurting your site. The proof is in the results (check out our case studies and reviews). We have a high success rate and a solid formula to improve your ranking.

The Google algorithm changes frequently, so there is no magic number that dictates exactly how long it will take to get you to page one. However, this is a major long-term investment for your company, so our efforts will be worth the wait. Be wary of anyone who guarantees they can get you on page one in a month. Think of it like planting a garden; it can take months before the seeds you plant blossom into flowers, but their beauty is worth waiting for.

Absolutely! Once we get you to page one, we can keep up maintenance on your site to help keep you at the top.
