Here at Steel Marketing, we believe in providing you with all the necessary facts to help you make the decision to start doing SEO — whether that be our insightful blog posts or our results from real businesses all over the country. But a big one is showing you where people are ranking, and the success they’ve had because that’s really encouraging to see: where they started, what it looked like in the middle and what the ‘end’ product looks like — even though SEO is an on-going process, still is nice to see where/when they started generating leads & money!!
So we had an idea: let’s share current client rankings… whether they have been on for a week or a month. This way, you get to see what progress looks like from day 1 to day wherever that particular client is at!
We hope this is helpful for you in your pursuit of finding what marketing method(s) will help grow your business like never before! We hope you enjoy!!

Synergy HomeBuyers // Fayetteville, NC
Synergy HomeBuyers started doing SEO with Steel Marketing in mid-April of 2019, and before on-boarding with us, they didn’t have a website at all. So we did what we do for most of our clients, build out an Investor Carrot website for them — which if you’re a real estate investor and you’re not using Carrot, you definitely need to consider it! Here’s a link to their pricing & plans.
Screenshot number 1 shows where they were when they started, which has an average position of 100 meaning that they didn’t show anywhere at all on Google.
Screenshot 2 is the day after we completed the site.
Screenshot 3 is 2 days after we completed the site.
Screenshot 4 is 4 days after we completed the site.
Holy mackerel!!!!!!!! Look at that INSANE jump from non-existent to a total of 24 keywords (5 in top 3, 19 in spots 4-10) on page 1 in FIVE DAYS!!!
They’ve been climbing ever since. As it sits now here in early June 2019, they are nearing the end of month 2, but they’ve ALREADY generated leads — heck, these guys got like 3 leads in their second week with Steel Marketing. Things are picking up steam and are only going to increase.
Artistic Polymers // Nashville, TN
Artistic Polymers is a garage floor coating company near Nashville, TN! These guys joined on with Steel Marketing in March of 2019, but we just started things by editing their website as they got some administrative things lined up before they signed on for our full SEO program. But they decided to kick off full-on SEO at the beginning of May.
This first screenshot is where they started, and screenshot number 2 is where they were JUST FIVE DAYS AFTER US EDITING & OPTIMIZING THE WEBSITE!!!!!!!!!!
Talk about a massive increase!!!! Just absolutely insane how IMPORTANT our on-page SEO process is — which you definitely should read more about here in The Overlooked Foundation Of SEO article we wrote… there’s some good nuggets in there 😉
As they sit right now, they have SEVENTEEN (17) NUMBER ONE KEYWORDS!!! Sorry for the caps lock, but that’s absolute insanity! We’re working to get all 62 keywords they’re going after to be ranked #1 after it’s all said and done!
ClearChoice Sealing & Striping // Paducah, KY
ClearChoice is an asphalt sealcoating company based out of Paducah, Kentucky, but they service much of Southern Kentucky, Northern Tennessee and parts of Illinois & Missouri. These guys didn’t have a website, so they called upon Steel Marketing in April of 2019 to build them a great, high converting website, which we definitely did!
They weren’t anywhere whatsoever on Google when we started with them, so they were 100% non-existent… then we did this with them:
^^^ please take another look at that image: 23 top 3 keywords in SEVEN (7) days flat after we completed their website build — before this, they had absolutely zero web presence.
These guys just continue to rise and rise! We built our their site at the end of April, and we finished at the beginning of May 2019. In June, they kicked off their SEO campaign to completely dominate their market, and here’s their rankings at the start of their SEO campaign:
Rankin Buys Houses // South Bend, IN
Rankin Buys Houses is a real estate investment company in South Bend, Indiana, and they do rehabs, flips, and wholesaling. When they first signed on with Steel Marketing, they didn’t have their Carrot site for very long (maybe 2-3 weeks). These guys didn’t really do a whole lot with their carrot site out of the box, so it was your standard, usual content from Carrot.
Screenshot #1 is from day 1 — you can see they are 100 on average, which means they were not existent on the first 10 pages of Google. Screenshot #2 is just FOUR days after we completed doing on-page SEO!
And just like that… history repeats itself!! On-page SEO is completed, we tell Google who these guys are and BOOM, they get rewarded with increased rankings!
The sudden increase is great and all, but combining the best on-page optimization with the most dominate onslaught of off-page SEO is a super combination for absolutely destroying your competition.
Has everything been hunky dory? Of course not!! There have been ups and down, ebbs and flows… this stuff is normal when doing SEO!!! That’s why you have to look at the full body of work. Let’s take a look at a screenshot from their most recent monthly report… this is three months through Steel Marketing’s seasoned SEO process. Notice a few keywords dipped this month, which is normal because they’ll go right back up next month.
My Florida Home Buyers // Sorrento, FL
My Florida Home Buyers is a real estate investment company that buys houses in Central Florida — Orlando and Surrounding. When they first reached out to Steel Marketing, they were actually ranking relatively well in some of their main target cities. But their owner knew that where they were wasn’t going to cut it.
These guys joined Steel Marketing in mid-May so at the time of these screenshots, they are right smack dab in the middle of their first month of SEO.
As you can see in the first screenshot, they actually started out with 12 keywords in the top 3 positions before Steel Marketing went in to make the necessary edits for on-page optimization.
^^TWO DAYS^^ later they had 22 keywords in the top 3 and 7 in the top 10!!! Talk about a sweet increase! They’ve already generated a couple leads in the first month, and we’ll continue on with our goal of getting all keywords in the top 3! But this is another great example of the quick and effective results Steel Marketing can get for your business!
YNP Home Solutions // Martinsburg, WV
YNP Home Solutions is a real estate investment company that buys houses in the Tri-State area — Southern Pennsylvania, Eastern West Virginia and Western Maryland.
These guys had done a lot of their own SEO before talking to and joining on with Steel Marketing, but just like a couple other clients of Steel Marketing, YNP Home Solutions knew they needed more firepower to leapfrog some competition who were — key word in that sentence 😉 —in front of them.
As you can see from the first screenshot, they were doing fairly well with 7 total keywords in the top 3. But in just four days, Steel Marketing got ALL THEIR KEYWORDS IN THE TOP 10!!! They are now in their second month with Steel Marketing, and are doing well, generating leads & making things happen!
Rex Property Group // New Orleans, LA
Rex Property Group is a real estate investment company in New Orleans, Louisiana, and before joining Steel Marketing, they had a website through Lead Propeller — which is a duplicated site similar to that of Investor Carrot… but no where near as valuable. With LP, you were unable to edit certain things such as H1 and H2 tags, and that’s a HUGE part of on-page optimization (there were other things, but we’re not here to talk about all of that).
Rex had done some Google Adwords himself, but that was about all when it came to Google marketing. He needed the full workup, so let’s see what Steel Marketing did for him!
Screenshot #1 is day 1 before we edited the site, screenshot #2 is 5 days after editing the and screenshot #3 is 14 days after editing the website.
Wowzas! In just 2 weeks, they went from basically being non-existent to having 10 keywords in the top 10. Is there still work to be done? Absolutely there is! Steel Marketing’s goal for all of our clients is to get them at the top for every keyword, but this is a promising start. Rex is coming to the end of their first month, and things are just going to continue to ramp up!
