Scott Burson of Hook SEO

Scott Burson – Technical SEO and Server Ninja

Having your content load as quickly as possible and as securely as possible will keep your rankings safe from malware, hacks, slow Internet connections, and other negative effects on your search rankings.  Many companies completely ignore the technical aspects of SEO and how server configurations, sloppy code, bad plugins, off-site iframing, non-minimized scripts, and oodles of other things can kibosh your search ranks.

Scott and his team will make sure to diagnose these problems, correct them, and keep your backend in tip-top shape.  And we don’t mean your behind, but we will cover your behind when it comes to search!
