Does SEO Work – For Advertising Agencies?

Does SEO Work For Advertising Agencies? A Look At

In the interest of transparency… here are some of my very own blog numbers. The Big News: Blogs that pay attention to SEO work to drive sales.

A great deal of the advice I give my advertising agency clients that want to run sharper lead generation business development programs is on the subject of inbound marketing, especially Search Engine Optimization – and how to drive it. Yes, I am a very big fan of outbound as well. I call some of that warm calling. As in my LinkedIn post; “Dump Cold Calling. Go Warm Calling.” demonstrates. But back to SEO.


Of course, SEO works — if you work at it. I have worked at it via 488 targeted (read some of my headlines and posts that are written with YOUR interests in mind) blog posts since 2013. Here is some proof of SEO effectiveness from my own stats.

I Like Google.

Search engines have been kind. Does Google dominate? Yes, and here’s some proof. The chart below from WordPress shows where my referral traffic comes from. It also shows that Twitter and LinkedIn work hard for me with over 3,400 referrals.

I Also Like Direct Traffic.

The one below is from Google Analytics and adds in traffic of 9,000 plus from direct sources.

That’s all I have to say.

Oh, I got over 68,000 Views in 2014. How’d you do? Cause… an advertising agency should be doing much better than me, a single practitioner.
