So you’re looking for an SEO consultant — that’s awesome! But…
When you need professional SEO help, often it’s hard to know who to turn to. There are lots of agencies and consultants out there who will readily take your money, but you have no idea if they know what they are talking about or if they can execute on your challenges.
Fortunately, there ARE good SEO consultants and agencies out there who can help, and who have proven track records of success. The two sources I list below contain some of the best folks in the industry, and I highly recommend starting your search here.
Sure Oak, founded by Tom Casano, is a full-service SEO agency with a great team that’s well respected in the SEO industry.
One thing I like about Sure Oak is their ability to help clients with a much broader range of budget than other agencies of this caliber. This means smaller businesses with smaller budgets can often get help with expert SEO advice instead of getting turned away.
Regardless, if this sounds interesting, you can check out Sure Oak here.
Credo is run by John Doherty, an amazing SEO consultant and strategist that I’ve known for years. Today his primary business is matching the right business with the right SEO solution.
Credo is a full product that takes clients all the way from an inquiry to signing, working with, and paying their marketing pro. Highly recommended.
If your SEO needs are more temporary, or if your budget is smaller, Credo has solutions for these situations too.

The Moz Recommended List of SEO Consultants and Agencies is put together by the folks at Moz, the most highly-trusted SEO company on the planet. I trust this list because I am one of the people who has helped put it together.
To be honest, this list is pretty popular. This means that you might find it hard to hire–or even get a response from–many of the people on this list. Budgets tend to be higher too. That said, the quality of help and expertise is top-notch. If your needs are more immediate, you might be better going with the Credo options above.
I am currently unavailable for new consulting projects. If you need to get in touch with me for any reason, visit the contact page to drop me a line.
Not currently, but my schedule is always shifting, so it’s always good to ask.
I specialize in on-page SEO, technical SEO, site architecture, internal linking, general SEO audits, content mapping, and other interesting SEO problems.
I became an SEO in 2009 and soon after started working for Moz, where I led SEO efforts for a time. Since then I have become an independent consultant.
