About Me

I have been providing professional SEO consulting in Los Angeles for over seventeen years. My primary mission has changed overtime from getting websites to rank in search engines to keeping businesses from wasting money on the wrong type of SEO service. The pursuit of keyword rankings without a purposeful and goal-oriented approach has resulted in a lot of wasted money. Consequently, SEO has a very negative connotation for those who have had this wasteful experience. But it need not be this way.

In recent years, my mission of educating people about smart SEO has resulted in many conversations where I talk people out of investing money in SEO--the service from which I make my living. I don't do this just out of the goodness of my heart. That's part of it, but unhappy SEO clients make my life very difficult, because instead of spending time working on SEO strategies, I would end up spending my days on the phone with unhappy clients, and educating them about what SEO is and what is possible to achieve through SEO (after they sign up--I'd rather this happen before they do).

So now, instead of providing this education after they sign up, I make sure that it is done before they do, so that they know going in that SEO is not a magic solution for their traffic woes.

So, if you are looking for a professional SEO consultant to teach you about SEO, and evaluate whether your business is a good fit for SEO, then reach out to me. I'll be glad to guide you along (or away from SEO).

I have known Vacheh for 12 years, and have always been impressed by his high degree of technical expertise, vast knowledge in all aspects of Internet marketing, and by his intelligence, professionalism, work ethics, enthusiastic and positive attitude. Vacheh is one of the most knowledgeable consultants in the field of search engine marketing.

Working actively in the SEO industry since 2001, and having the opportunity to manage SEO departments of several renown Internet Marketing firms have given me the privilege of working with many SEO professionals, but very few have Vacheh's technical knowledge, marketing prowess, ability to communicate, and grasp on the ever-changing landscape in search today.

Vacheh's assets extend beyond his deep knowledge in SEO, social media, PPC and other digital media channels. He is a recognizable search engine marketing leader who is extremely plugged into the Online Marketing industry. Vacheh is truly a search engine marketing expert with a deep understanding of the many factors involved in optimization and can prioritize them based on the most efficient use of resources depending on any client's needs. Recognizing that SEO is a moving target, he is quick to plan and implement sound strategies to boost traffic and improve ROI for clients.

Vacheh is the person I turn to for advice and second opinion when I face a complex SEO issue. He is a great advisor, and his unmatchable expertise is priceless.
