1st In SEO Has New Ownership (Updated for 2020)

It’s been a busy couple of years for 1st in SEO.

We’ve learned a lot.

We’ve also made a ton of mistakes; everything from bad hires to questionable financial decisions but along the way we’ve stayed profitable and never wavered from our commitment to exceptional customer service.

It’s that commitment to our customers that drives us. It’s why we’re constantly trying to get better, seeking new opportunities to learn about our industry and taking on challenges that more traditional marketing companies don’t have the audacity to.

We’ve worked with brands and individuals from all over the world; from Manhattan to Sydney, Los Angeles to Barcelona, to local companies right here in Albuquerque.

Working with so many different companies has taught us the value of communication skills and this is one area where we are sorely lacking.

We’re like a carpenter that never finishes the renovations on his own house.

And over the last two years we’ve completely neglected to deal with our own reputation issues often choosing instead to stay hyper focused on our customers, spending zero dollars on marketing for our own business.

While that’s easier than confronting our company’s issues they are something we can’t ignore.

That’s why it’s time we clear up a few things:

  1. We changed the former owner’s political policy immediately after taking over three years ago. 
  2. We will work with anyone provided they are a good fit for our business. By this I mean that what we do from a marketing and SEO perspective has to be effective for a potential customer. For example, we can’t help a company in a super competitive industry like personal injury law that doesn’t want to allocate the required budget.
  3. We will not do anything that violates Google’s Quality Rater Guidelines or their Webmaster Guidelines.
  4. We are a politically neutral company. 
  5. See number 4.


We hope this clears up any confusion.  Moving forward we’re excited about what the future holds and look forward to working with new businesses.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
