Do you still think that hiring an SEO consultant or agency and paying thousands of dollars is the only way to rank your business on Google?
In this article, I’ll show you how a Squirrly SEO user managed to get on the 1st Page of Google, drive traffic to his site and reach customers – all within an impressively-short time frame and solely by using the PRO Version of our plugin.
I had SEO companies tell me they could do this but it all takes time and wanted thousands of dollars. Squirrly SEO saved me that money many times over!
Drew Spangler, Orlando Homeopathic Body Works.
Option A (the one that is a pain in the budget)
Pay a substantial amount of money to SEO consultants and agencies.
- According to a recent study, the average SEO consultant hourly rate worldwide as of January 2019 is $148 /hour.
- 55.32% of US SEO consultants charge $101-$200/hour.
- You don’t have to be great at math to know it can all add up to a few thousands of dollars every month.
I know, right?
The Do-it-Yourself approach.
Which means trying to navigate the ever-changing world of SEO yourself, with all its twists and turns, and figuring out the route to better Rankings on your own.
Option B is the one Drew Spangler, like many other bloggers and small business owners out there, end up taking.
The challenges he faced are the challenges many of you reading this probably face as well.
As a new small business owner, Drew didn’t have thousands of dollars to pay a consultant for SEO.
With limited funds at his disposal, he needed a way to get his business site noticed, bring more relevant Search traffic, and get customers through the door.
So, “very quickly I had to learn to be a webmaster and SEO”, he says.
I looked around and saw many plugins for WordPress making claims of what they could do and read the reviews. I tried a few with little or no results until I got the trial of Squirrly SEO.
Drew Started a Squirrly SEO Free Trial, and then This Happened
Spoiler alert: SEO works – without having to pay thousands of dollars in consultancy fees.
Within days of using Squirrly SEO, Drew started seeing his SEO performance improve and scored a major win:
I made one blog post and within days I was in the top 20 of Google. I followed everything they [Squirrly’s Focus Pages] suggested to make it green for SEO and it was super easy to do. From there, I went on to optimize my site and got into the top 20 of Google.
One of the services I offer made me rank better in Google than the manufacturer who sold me the machine I use to do the service with. I ranked at #3 on Google and they ranked at #4. I got a call from the company due to this asking how I was ranked better than them.
Going Behind the Scenes of Drew's SEO Success Story
When referring to his journey towards SEO success, Drew pinpointed two essential elements that helped shape it:
1. Keyword research
By using the Keyword Research feature from Squirrly SEO, Drew was able to find the right keywords to market his website and thus reach the people looking for the types of services that his business provides.
Those were high-opportunity keywords with low competition that his site was able to rank for.
Drew followed the framework provided by the PRO version of Focus Page by Squirrly SEO to rank his page on the 1st Page of Google.
This proves that when you follow the right system, you can be successful with SEO, even if you don’t have extensive knowledge of how search engines work or years of experience in this field.
When we asked Drew what is one thing that makes Squirrly SEO stand out from the rest, he told us that he was impressed by how easy it is to use and how fast it works.
I made one blog post, and Squirrly helped me make sure all the dots were green. Within days, that post was within the top 20 of Google. That impressed me, so I went from the Trial to the PRO and has been well worth the price!
There are over 54 different ranking factors that you can tweak by solving tasks and making everything Green inside Focus Pages.

His story proves that the do-it-yourself approach works; it proves that you can drive your site to the 1st Page of Google – IF you have the right co-pilot by your side.
Drew went from struggling to bring traffic to his site to being on the 1st page of Google and having customers request his services as a result of him increasing online visibility for his business.
His results speak volumes about the true value that Squirrly SEO provides – more so than any clever marketing tagline we can come up with.
