Share Article

First Page SEO was ranked as number 25 of the top 30 Internet marketing businesses doing organic search engine optimization according to Visibility Magazine in its July 2007 issue.

Visibility Magazine, in its July 2007 issue, has ranked a Canadian company from Ontario Canada as one of the top Internet marketing companies in North America. First Page SEO ( was ranked as number 25 of the top 30 Internet marketing businesses doing organic search engine optimization. First Page SEO is the only Ontario based marketing organization to break into this elite club of Internet marketers.

Visibility Magazine ( refers to itself as a monthly journal featuring "Internet Marketing Strategy Unplugged" and is circulated to business leaders, marketing executives and academics across North America.

North America companies are leading the charge in the multibillion-dollar Internet search industry. Search engine optimization is one marketing segment where American firms have entrenched themselves as market leaders across the world, as measured in evidence by placement results. While many new businesses have been set up in India to outsource some of the search engine marketing work, the real leading-edge marketing guru's continue to conduct their business in house with highly skilled and innovative employees, capable of keeping up with, or staying ahead of, the complex search engine algorithms.

First Page SEO has consistently ranked number one on Google for many years for search terms such as "Ontario search engine marketing" and "Ontario search engine optimization" where competing indexed pages can number almost two million. In its customer base of some 400 clients, First Page SEO has more than its fair share of top ranking Web sites. In a world where search engine listings come and go with each search engine algorithm change, staying on top of the pack is part art and part science. As a result most companies that are good at search engine marketing command fairly high professional fees and have waiting lists. First Page SEO currently has a six-week waiting list for search engine optimization work or Web site design.

What is unusual about the Visibility Magazine published ranking study is that generally few Canadian companies break into the USA Internet marketing scene with any degree of success. USA marketing expenditures in California alone are equivalent to all of Canada. First Page SEO does Internet marketing and Web sites for customers from all over the world and considers Canada as only one of many geographic market opportunities.

Many business sectors are reporting that up to 80% of their business can come from Web search. Increasingly, the Internet is the tool of choice for business and consumers shopping for services or products on a retail or wholesale basis.

"Most businesses have realized for some years now that Internet marketing is pivotal to their business success," says Mark Coles, a principal owner of First Page SEO.

While thousands of Webmasters and marketing types advertise search engine marketing services only few can deliver. Businesses seeking Internet marketing advice should demand customer references and check the keyword placement of those customers on major search engines. They can also check the placement of the company offering the service. Chances are, if a marketing company can't place its own site - they probably can't get your Web site ranking near the top either.

First Page SEO has been offering Internet marketing solutions for over eight years. It serves over 400 clients' worldwide and provides optimization services, site development, opt-in mail programs, and media and link services. For more information, please visit or call Mark Coles at 705-286-3656.
