Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 17, 2011
SEO Software company DIYSEO (http://www.diyseo.com) announced today that 80% of the most active customers who use the software for over 90 days enjoy top 30 rankings on core keywords, with 63% generating top five rankings on keywords they are targeting.
This announcement comes on the heels of a recent investment of over $30 million by Google Ventures, Sequoia Capital, and SalesForce.com in Hubspot, a marketing automation software company aimed to help small and medium sized businesses. Venture capital investments in SEO focused companies such as Hubspot, SEO Moz, BrightEdge, Conductor, and DIYSEO have increased significantly over the last two years in both frequency and the size of the investments. These figures released by DIYSEO suggest the investments are paying dividends for end users.
DIYSEO CEO Dan Olson said “It’s incredibly gratifying to see small businesses get real results from SEO. Its proof that SEO can not only be affordable and accessible to small businesses but it can also produce results for them. We feel this is just the beginning of a fundamental shift in SEO economics and we’re proud to be a part of it.”
In addition to offering a simple, customized step-by-step plan to help small businesses improve their rankings in search engines, DIYSEO also offers tools to help them monitor their progress, and provides free access to SEO experts to answer specific questions about SEO best practices. Olson credits this approach with making SEO low cost and low effort – the two biggest marketing challenges for small businesses. “The fact that 80 percent of our most active user base is seeing tangible improvements and great exposure on search engines is proof that our approach is not only low cost and low effort but also produces results.”
