What Exactly I Do
Doing everything makes you a jack of all trades, master of none.
I’m an experienced website developer and SEO professional in Anchorage, Alaska. Entrepreneurs come to me from all over the state because they want to increase their leads and sales online. I’m able to help them because of my creativity and my consistent SEO methods. I also draw upon my strong programming background to keep my clients satisfied. You should know… I keep my focus solely on SEO, so I can do the best job possible for you. (I leave other specialties, like email marketing or building an app, to other professionals. I know a few good people I can recommend in those areas if you like.)

My early years and how I got started.
Programming started rather young for me – when I was in elementary school. It really all happened when my family moved from Washington State to Golden Valley, AZ. I had been getting sick because the weather was too moist and humid for me up North. The desert small town of Golden Valley suited me well and the climate made me feel better. When I turned six, my parents decided to home school me (and my brothers) because the nearest grade school was 45 minute away in Kingman, Arizona.
I was a natural from the very start; programming was in my blood. My parents passed on their love for programming by teaching me GW Basic and other programming languages; they encouraged me every step of the way. By twelve years old, I had built a simple computer program of my own, a calculator.
Where my love of being a nerd came from.
I kept up the pace in my teens. I learned about command prompts and file directories; I took apart the back end of all of the computer games I was playing, trying to look for the secret codes. And soon, I discovered the Internet and working with web interfaces as I programmed quite a few MySpace pages for some of my buddies. I was learning how to use code to my advantage. And it a few years later, when I was around 20, I designed some websites of my own in the affiliate marketing area. I had made my first money on the web… and really liked it.
By 2006, I had opened my own firm; later it would be re-named Joseph Stevenson (an Anchorage, Alaska SEO Firm). As I was building effective websites for my clients, I also began getting good at marketing websites. When Google and other search engines began to “rule the roost” on the web, I made it my objective to figure out how to keep on top of their algorithms and get my clients’ websites ranked high when prospects were searching for their products and services. I’ve been at this now for 12 years. Today, in competing with other Anchorage SEO firms, I never shrink from putting the great results I’ve been able to achieve for my clients up against the best of them.
I believe business should be earned, not expected.
I know I’m honest and do good work. And. I’m definitely old fashioned when it comes to satisfying my clients. I know I must earn their trust and respect by doing what I promise and working together as partners along the way. Some of the other SEO firms in the Anchorage area aren’t this dedicated it seems. When many of these other SEO firms in Anchorage “win” a client, they have them sign a long-term contract and then as soon as that’s sewed up, they turn around and outsource most of the important behind-the-scenes work to other firms so they won’t have to actually do much work, and of course, they pocket the difference between your fee and what they pay to vendors.
I know this because some of these companies have approached me to do the work they’ve promised to their clients. If course, I declined. You’ll never find me doing this. I consider my relationship with clients a win-win proposition, not some money making scheme.
If you don’t do things right, don’t do them at all.
While I don’t claim Joseph Stevenson is the only Anchorage SEO firm that keeps their promises and is transparent, if I were a betting man, I’d say those are pretty good odds. The same is true when it comes to the quality and longevity of the work we do for you.
Many of the other SEO companies in Anchorage will take shortcuts. They will throw copy on your website and on the web seeing what sticks, and will arrange a few back links. It doesn’t help if their early run on the search engines gives you a boost in your rankings. People do that all the time. What matters is how long your increase in search engines rankings can be sustained. To do this, requires sticking to a process… and doing things right the first time.
To get to the top of the major search engines and stay there, here is the 3-step SEO process I’ll implement:
1. Asses your current site and tweak as needed. This may include improving your code (most likely), your content (probably), and your sales funnel (probably). I want your site to look stellar and work efficiently in getting you leads and sales when I start driving more prospects to your site.
2. Create and post interesting, valuable, share-able content both on your site and off. This includes blog articles, social media posts, press releases, etc. Strategic content will get indexed by the search engines and your website rank will begin to rise.
3. The last set is simple; repeat Step #2 again and again to keep your rankings rising and to maintain your rankings.
Hand down, this process works… and it takes hard work. If other Anchorage SEO firms try and tell you otherwise, unless it’s pretty close to the above, I suggest you don’t bother. It’s either ignorance or dishonesty on their part no doubt, and neither one of those is good news for your bottom line. (I suggest that when selecting a SEO firm in Anchorage, ask them exactly what process they use, and why.
