Here is what a few of our clients have to say

As a result of First Rank's efforts, call volume tripled for service work. Our website has become significantly more searchable, which has increased site traffic. Looking at our keywords, we appear in two postings on the first page and high in local results. We’re ranking quite high for all of the search items we wanted to rank for. The positive results were instantaneous.
- Daniel Hartley - Powertec
We had incredible results for the SEO project including several hundred thousand views. We also sold $150,000–$200,000 worth of product as a result of First Rank’s SEO efforts. Additionally, three of the articles that we wrote are now on the first page of Google. As a result, we’ve had a number of inquiries, particularly in the last couple of months, and several of them will result in significant sales. They’re a great team to work with... The analytics report that they provide every month is great. Whenever I ask them to do something, it’s typically done in 24 hours. We communicate via email, text, and phone, and we also meet face-to-face periodically.
Ted Cullen - QuikTherm
We continue to be satisfied with their services and the results. The work that Jacob and his team is doing has provided us with phenomenal traction. Before working with them, we were hovering around page two or three on a dozen keywords that were important to us. Now, we’re consistently ranking either one, two, or three on all the keywords and key searches that we wanted to be ranked on, which has been huge. We’ve also seen our numbers go from an average of 10 requests per month to about 30. It’s been a great partnership.
- Gaurav Bhatt - PrintPro
For most of the keywords, we ranked in the top three search results if not the first result. Their team maintained those rankings too. We eventually reached close to the top three search results for the other keywords. First Rank had a big impact on our business. They were directly responsible for a 2-times increase in our business...The qualities that make them stand out are integrity and communication. Jacob’s one of the nicest entrepreneurs that I know. As a result of his quality coaching, we maintained a relationship throughout the project.
- Donald Spann - Companion Maids

Competition is stiff in Ottawa Ontario. With well over a million people, it can be hard for your message to stand out. You’re in the capital of one of the wealthiest nations on the planet. There’s opportunity everywhere – and you’re not the only person who thinks so. How do you cut through the noise and get to clients before your competitors do? The answer is Ottawa SEO services and digital marketing and we are the seo company that will help your business or government agency.

Capital in the Capital

Imagine a world where the only people who see your advertising are people who are deep in the sales funnel. People who are already looking to buy your product or service. That’s the power of search engine optimization (SEO services). When someone hops on Google to look for something they want to purchase, they already know they’re ready to buy.

Did you know that 90% of traffic never makes it past the first page of a Google search? That means if you’re not on that first page, you’re missing out on 90% of your potential customers. Search results are ranked by where they appear on results pages; the top slot on the front page is the first rank. That’s where we get our name, and that’s where we want to get your business. For search engines and digital marketing it pays to be first!

Canadian Pride​

Canada SEO services and traditional marketing are very different beasts. One thing they share in common? The need to understand the clients you want to reach. We’re proud of our Canadian roots – We started doing SEO in Winnipeg. We’re constantly tuned into Canadian news and stories. That means we know what Canadians are searching for. We know what Ottawans are searching for. We can spot trends and use them to fine-tune your website. When people are searching for terms relevant to your industry, you’ll be on top.

100% Canadian Content​

We make content that would make the CRTC proud. SEO is a game of content – you need to create readable, shareable, likable posts to succeed. We deliver high-quality content tailored to what’s trending in Ottawa and in your industry. International SEOs will often outsource writers, creating news stories from a US perspective. We spell honourable with a “u”. You can literally see the difference with us.

We’re All Linked​

Good content is in the eye of the beholder. We write excellent content, but Google doesn’t have eyes – they need someone to tell them what’s good. One way they do this is through links. The idea came from scholarly articles – the more often you’re cited, the more authoritative your article seems.

When you’re cited by people with great reputations, all the better. We find sites in Ottawa and in your industry who are looking for incredible content. We show them the amazing content we’ve created with you and encourage them to link to it. That boosts your ranking and helps their customers – a win-win.

Let’s Get Technical​

Amazing content is at the core of SEO but there’s another important element – what’s under the hood. When your site loads slowly or is hard to navigate, your ranking drops like a stone. Our technical know-how means your site will get a thumbs up on all these metrics from search engines. No more dead links, no more bad redirects, no more slow loading. Better page optimization. Your website will be easy to browse for humans and for the robots that Google uses to archive the web. This is what makes us Ottawa SEO experts. We will help your business be found on organic search rankings. The search engine results speak for themselves. We will develop a content strategy and do content marketing.

Everything Affects Ottawa SEO

That photo of Parliament Hill you shared on your Instagram? It could affect your Ottawa SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The new product picture you posted on your site? Impacts SEO. New reviews of your company? You know that’s going to change how Google sees you. These algorithms are complex. We understand them inside and out. That’s why we take a holistic approach to SEO services and online marketing; we can help with everything from social media, reputation management, to digital marketing as a whole using Google ads and even some web design. Make sure SEO is part of your marketing strategies! Business owners get a free strategy session.
