When I personally think about the most notable marketing companies in LA a variety of different types of firms come to mind. Anything from Chiat Day to Wpromote… If you’re in the search engine optimization game you should be visible for seo keywords. Especially keywords that relate to your locale and competitive local markets.
But when I think of an SEO company in Los Angeles the very first one that comes to my mind is The Search Agency. This is obvious for a few reasons… #1 being they have “Search” in their name which says a lot about what their area of focus is. One would also be lead to believe that this denotes expertise in the field.
Additionally, I know one of their former employees. He was my boss when I worked in the tech industry and here’s another thing – he now works for Google. So that’s probably another reason The Search Agency is the first name that comes to mind when I picture an SEO company in Los Angeles. I personally know that they have alumni at Google today. That’s a HUGE thing to say about any company… that their former employees now work for Google.
All this credibility aside, when you search Google for an SEO company in Los Angeles – TSA (Shorthand for “The Search Agency”) doesn’t even make the first page!
So who is the most visible SEO company in Los Angeles? Right now it’s these guys: https://coalitiontechnologies.com/ – I had never heard of Coalition Technologies until recently but they obviously know what they’re doing because they’re the first name I get when I search for an SEO company in Los Angeles. They also have what looks to be a very large staff and multiple locations across the country. While a lot of their employees on Linked In are listed as “freelance” copy writers and developers it’s obvious they also have a lot of internal employees as well.
SEO is a constantly changing game so we don’t necessarily discredit anyone for not being visible in a search like this. A company like TSA doesn’t really need to focus on inbound business. They are a large enough entity that they aren’t relying on people searching for an SEO company in Los Angeles and calling them up.
Rest assured will be keeping an eye on this space and our fellow agencies though!
We write a lot about enterprise SEO services. The reason being some of our oldest clients happen to be enterprise SEO jobs. One client in particular – we have been working on for almost 3 years now continually.
This client is an e-commerce company. They sell a ton of products and have a huge website with over 70,000 pages. As you can imagine this is a lot of work, there are a ton of images and a whole lot of text to be optimized. That’s where professional enterprise SEO services, from a company such as ours come in to play.
Aside from being a massive sales funnel, this website is also tied to a brick and mortar store. A lot of the inventory and the pages on the site could also be locally optimized if the brand so chose. Instead what they tend to do is use the e-commerce site as a means of selling additional inventory. In some cases items they’re not already selling in their brick and mortar store. Not only does this give them additional channels to liquidate inventory through, it also makes their business much more diverse as a whole.
We have been doing work for this company for going on three years. Their website has over 70,000 pages and is one of the larger jobs we have done. If all goes well, we will probably still be doing it in another couple years as long as the company continues to sell products. We have seen other vendors come and go, but we continue to do what we do best and they continue to give us work.
Let us show you firsthand the value of the work that we are doing for this company. The company itself spends a lot of money not just on our enterprise SEO services but also on other means of advertising themselves. They spend money on pay per click in Google AdWords. So how can we clearly and decisively show the difference between the results of our enterprise SEO services and the advertising the company is doing?
That is where “knives” come in. At the time we started to do SEO for this brand, Google AdWords would not allow you to advertise certain items they had deemed unfit for their ecosystem. Knives were one of those items at that particular time. As a result, our client was not advertising the knives and any increase in traffic on those knives would have to have been from the enterprise SEO services performed by Apex Digital Media.
We started the job in July of 2015. As you can see from the analytics screenshot above, there was clearly an increase in traffic to the brands “knives” page. We can also show direct google search traffic coming to several of the sub-pages underneath this root category. It is safe to assume any increase in traffic to these products is a direct result of the enterprise SEO services performed by Apex. Since these products were not being advertised on Google AdWords and no budget was being spent to advertise them in any other venues.
Additionally, this company is still a client and has been for almost 3 years they obviously see the value of the work that we are doing. If they did not they would have stopped using our services a long time ago.

Today the Apex team was enjoying Pizza at an undisclosed location in Agoura Hills. As we were waiting for them to heat up our slices we all began to flip through our phones for some temporary amusement. One of our brighter team members decided to check how we are currently ranking in organic search for our business name… “Apex Digital Media.”
We were shocked and surprised to notice a small but new demarcation on Google’s Mobile SERP next to our listing that read “Mobile-Friendly.” It was something we’d never seen before and a quick search produced the recent announcement that indeed… Google has updated mobile SERP’s to let users know whether or not a site is mobile friendly. Fear not webmasters, they have clearly defined the criteria for what will earn you this tag. It is as follows:
GOOGLE: This change will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks. A page is eligible for the “mobile-friendly” label if it meets the following criteria as detected by Googlebot:
- Avoids software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash
- Uses text that is readable without zooming
- Sizes content to the screen so users don’t have to scroll horizontally or zoom
- Places links far enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped
This also fits with Google’s core mission which is providing relevant results and a great user experience. They even created a test site to help you with mobile optimization.
