Our team can continue to support you.
At Simplified SEO Consulting, we understand that you put a lot of time, effort, and money into getting your website to the top of Google. Now, you want that investment to pay off for a long time so you can continue to grow your business and help even more people.
While great SEO can keep you at the top for a while, left unattended it’s possible your rankings will drop again at some point. In order to stay at the top, you need to continue to nurture and grow your SEO…though hopefully with less effort than before. The problem is, you get busy and forget to monitor your data or don’t have the time to keep working on your website.
We believe you deserve a simple solution to stay at the top of Google so you can continue to have a regular stream of new clients while you focus on caring for your clients and your team. That’s why the majority of our alumni continue to work with us in some form long after we finish the initial phase of optimizing their site.
We offer a variety of alumni services to meet your needs. Contact us today so you can stop worrying about how long you’ll stay at the top and start focusing on other areas of your business!

What’s holding you back?
You’ve invested a lot in getting your website this far. We want to help you continue to nurture your SEO, slowly rank even a little better than you do now, and make sure you have a steady stream of the right clients for years to come. Below are some of the most common questions we get from our alumni but feel free to reach out to our team if you have a question not covered here!
Do I have to participate in one of these alumni packages?
Absolutely not! You may end your services with us at any time and we’ll continue to send positive vibes your way, be excited to catch up if we see you at a professional conference, and probably even wonder aloud how you’re doing from time to time in team meetings. That said, most of our alumni do choose to stay with us in some way. In most cases, alumni go with our “Alumni Tools” program as we keep it pretty inexpensive and it gives you the ability to keep monitoring your data as well as continued access to support from our team.
See the question below for more details about the process if you do decide to stop all services.
What if I stop all services with you, but then decide to come back later?
If you decide not to continue with an alumni package, please let us know. At the end of the time period you’ve paid for, we will remove you from our closed Facebook group (you can still follow our public page) and close out your data dashboard. It’s important to note that you will no longer have access to that data dashboard or data we’ve collected while working together.
Of course, you’re welcome to return at any time! We’ve had a number of our former clients come back to us later when they want to add services, open an office in a new area, go through a website redesign, are hit by a change in Google’s algorithm, or simply want to be even more competitive. And, we are always happy to open you back with open arms.
That said, we want to be very open about the fact that if we’ve already de-activated your data dashboard we will need to charge the onboarding fee again. This is because we’ll need to redo a lot of our former research and take time to get everything set back up to best serve you.
How do I add more keywords to my data dashboard?
We know our alumni sometimes want to change up the keywords they are monitoring. This is an easy change for us to make. However, we do have to be the ones to make it as we’re charged per keyword and therefore the system is set up so a staff member has to make those changes. We ask that you try to keep your keyword list at around 75 keywords, though we’ll occasionally make exceptions for larger practices (ex: one targeting several locations) who have been with us for a while.
What if I add a new service or location to my practice?
You can return to comprehensive SEO at any time. So, if you add a new service or location please reach out and let us know! At a minimum, we can add some keywords to your dashboard to monitor your progress ranking for the new service or location. We may have additional recommendations for you, or you may choose to return to comprehensive optimizing for a month or two in order to really get you some new traction and help fill up that new service/location! If you do decide to have us do comprehensive optimization on additional pages and have continued with a monthly alumni package we will not have to charge you the onboarding fee again.
Our team loves to hear how your practice is continuing to grow and gets excited to do more optimization on sites we’ve enjoyed optimizing in the past.
Can I change the competitors listed on my dashboard?
Absolutely! We know that as time goes on different practices might become more of your competitor in search results. We’re always happy to change out competitors. Simply email the change you’d like made to email@example.com and one of our team members will make those changes for you.
I’m redesigning my website. Should I be worried about my SEO?
First of all, we’re excited to see your new site! Redesigning a website is so exciting! And it’s important to keep your website looking fresh and current.
That said, it’s very common to see a temporary decrease in your SEO when you redesign your site. And the more you’ve worked on your SEO, the bigger the potential drop can be. So, we encourage you to reach out to us early in your redesign process and we’ll make some recommendations about things to be aware of as you work with a website developer on the new site. Then, about a month after your new site is live is a great time for an “SEO Checkup.”
Unfortunately, we cannot be responsible for drops in your SEO after a website redesign. Too often our clients have lost much of the ground we worked so hard to obtain when key things were removed, altered, or forgotten during the redesign process. Therefore, we are highly motivated to help you preserve our work if you remember to reach out to us early in the redesign process.
I just realized there is a porn site or other "spammy" site linking to my page. Can you help?
First of all, great work finding the bad link! It’s important to check out who’s pointing to your website every now and then.
What if I have a more complicated question for you or want to meet with one of the Simplified SEO Team Members?
First of all, know that we miss meeting with you 1:1 as well! That’s one of the hardest things on both ends when you transition to alumni-we stop having those monthly Zoom calls!
We do want to continue to support our alumni! So, if you have a question come up please know that we’d love to help! If it’s a quick question, pop it into the Facebook group and you should get a response from one of our staff pretty quickly. If it’s something more complicated, our “Office Hours” are probably a better fit. We try to schedule multiple office hours with different staff throughout the month so you have a variety of times to choose from. Additionally, you can always email us and ask to purchase a 45-minute call with one of us for an additional fee.
