About Personal SEO

In 2004, Tammy was a real estate agent and Tim was the IT Director of a 400+ agent brokerage working in his spare time on SEO for the company. Getting the company website to #1 on Google was the easy part at the time. The research, keeping them #1 and gaining more individual agents came next.

Since 2006, Tim and Tammy have been solely running and maintaining Personal SEO, tailoring organic SEO plans for real estate as well as several other specialty businesses to gather more leads, increase traffic, and rise in search engines.

From social media to in-depth HTML for websites, Personal SEO takes your business to the next level. Whether you want full hands-on training and coaching, or a hands-off approach to your site, letting Personal SEO take the reins and run with it, it’s YOUR SEO – with a PERSONAL TOUCH. 

“Tammy did a great job helping me rewrite our website for SEO. I knew I needed help I just didn’t know what kind! She took the reins and got me on the right path. She spent the time to work with me on developing my key words and also got me on the path to blogging. We’ve seen the results already! Thank you, Tammy! “

Carrie Trotter

 “I had Personal SEO designed and market my website. I have been with them since 2005 and even with the Real Estate market’s downturn, I am still getting business from my site. I would say that having the site and the marketing that personal SEO has done, my business has increased 10% even with the market slow down.”
