  • A contact name, address, and phone number, which must either match the public WHOIS data on the submitted domain or be a valid email account on the domain submitted for review. This is necessary to ensure the applicant is the owner of the domain, or otherwise in control of the web site.
  • A login for an active analytics system showing site traffic, including referring sites, search engine traffic and referrals, and referral keywords, going back at least 3 months. The more information you can provide, the better we will be able to help you.

  • A completed and signed agreement (to be provided to eligible applicants) which outlines the scope of our involvement and includes liability disclaimers appropriate for search optimization work.

Limited Time Offer: Restrictions Apply

  • Limited Time Offer: this promotion is limited - restrictions apply. We may discontinue this offer at any time, but are currently accepting applications through December 31, 2009 and may extend or renew at our discretion. Please email us for specific details.
  • This is not an offer of our comprehensive consulting services for free. Free SEO audits are performed according to an established protocol, which enables us to review your status and your market for you promptly and specifically. While we know we will provide specific, actionable advicde you can use to improve your search marketing efforts, we cannot assure proper due diligence - it is not possible to deliver our normal, top-quality SEO services as a free promotion. We do expect to deliver powerful, actionable advice, a subset of the comprehensive services we offer our clients.
  • Adult or objectionable content sites will be considered on their merits, at the sole discretion of the reviewers.
  • Temporary, development, free hosted and subdomain URLs are not eligible, nor are domains which appear to misrepresent their published content (e.g. a viagra ecommerce site published on a travel domain is not eligible).

Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a strategic, often technical approach to web publishing centered around search engine marketing (SEM). At Upper Left Placement we seek to publish content so as to draw as many referrals as possible from search engines, of the type we need to achieve your business goals. Higher rank on the right keywords equals higher volume of qualified visitors.

Competitive Web Publishing

If you publish content to the world wide web, you have competitors. You compete for attention, and if your web pages seek to achieve specific goals such as product sales or lead collection, you compete for customers. Effective SEO helps your web pages appear at the top (in the "upper left") of the search engine results pages, where they are most likely to be seen.

Methods, Process, and SEO Ethics

We are knowledge consultants, but we also know how to execute. We advise our clients, provide actionable guidance, and help get the tasks done when appropriate. We use traditional SEO methods to remove barriers to search inclusion, and we optimize content for search engines. We answer questions, we explain our actions, and we train those eager to learn. We use innovative and advanced methods to beat the competition. We pave new roads when it seems advantageous to go in new directions. Our ethics are solid - we do what works, in ways that win for our clients and their customers. We don't cheat, but we're not foolish, either. We strive to understand opportunities and associated risks well enough to support wise and accurate decision making, seeking long term success, every single time.

Active SEO Client Projects

Looking for an impressive list of clients for which we have performed stellar search engine optimization? Down below and occasionally highlighted on the left are active projects underway, but client names are protected. SEO is a competitive endeavor. Search engines would love to know which web sites are actively striving to rank better, so they can scrutinize SEO methods deployed and "manage" the effectiveness of anything that actually works well. I won't jeopardize my clients that way, nor do I want to expose my own work to deconstruction by junior SEO's trying to look good for their own clients. If you're serious about competing, and you reach a point where some external validation would make you want to hire us, let's talk. Give us a call and we'll help you make the right decision.


An SEO must continually develop a toolkit of SEO Best Practices. Experience plays in increasingly important role as search engines become smarter and more sophisticated, and competition increases. Upper Left Placement's lead SEO John Andrews started optimizing content for search engines before Google was born. His thought leadership in competitive SEO is well regarded in the SEO industry. He participates in professional meetings, is invited to speak at conferences, and contributes articles on SEO for technical magazines and web sites. John knows SEO, and he leads our team of designers, developers, marketers and business strategists.

SEO in Seattle, Washington 98104

A now successful entrepreneur once compared the East Coast to Seattle by telling his own story of innovation. Back in Boston, when he said he wanted to start a traditional business, his friends told him that if his idea was doable, someone would already have done it. But when he visited Seattle and spoke of his plans, people cheered him on and said he should totally go for it. "Work hard and innovate and you can beat the established players", they said. Our own experience is similar. Seattle is one of the most Internet-aware cities in the world. SEO is very competitive and just about everyone in Seattle knows enough about the web to claim some SEO expertise. Yet, we are happy to compete and thrilled to succeed as a respected SEO consultancy in the Pacific Northwest. We feel we are surrounded not by competitors, but potential partners.
