When people needed a service for their home they used to head to the Yellow Pages or ask a friend for a recommendation, but in today’s internet-savvy world, most people head to the internet for information, making search engine optimization (SEO) for companies like cleaning services all the more important.

One company that’s doing just that is North West Green Clean, a Seattle, Washington-based commercial and residential cleaning service which has tapped a Georgia-based search engine optimization (SEO) firm SEO Marketing LLC to help increase its online marketing presence.

In addition to helping increase the search engine optimization (SEO) of the site, SEO Marketing will incorporate social media marketing and make some changes to the company’s website.

Ben Surdi, owner of North West Green Clean, says his company simply does not have the time to work on search engine optimization (SEO) on its own.

"Our business has grown so much we just don’t have the time to work on our site and help clients," he said. "I believe we will see better results using the services of a professional SEO company."

A number of small businesses are turning to search engine optimization (SEO) to help increase traffic. Recently, Majestic Interlocking Paving, a paving company in California teamed up with an online marketing company to help increase their search engine optimization (SEO).
