Doug Stewart: Native Tulsan and Local SEO Professional

Doug Stewart, our local SEO expert, was born at Hillcrest Hospital in Tulsa, OK. He studied computer programming at Tulsa Community College and Business Management at The University of Tulsa.

He also studied advertising and technical writing at The University of North Texas.

Local SEO Expertise

Before there was a Google, Doug worked to get his clients to the top of Alta Vista, Excite, GoTo, Ask Jeeves and Dogpile.

“Back-in-the-day” Doug built websites with Microsoft’s Frontpage and hand-coded HTML to get websites to the top of the search engines. Eventually, DSC Web Services and its clients outgrew Microsoft Frontpage.

Then we hired two developers, TJ Stewart and Jason Morris. With TJ and Jason’s help, we built a search engine friendly e-commerce platform, Fast Cat Carts.

Today DSC Web Services builds websites and performs search engine work primarily on the WordPress CMS.

Doug also teaches local SEO basics using WordPress at WordCamps and other conferences (see below).

Why Would an SEO Consultant Recommend This?

Because if you own the highest valued real estate on Google, you’ll get the lion’s share of the best phone calls. Phone calls from people ready-to-buy. People looking online for your products or services find you. They call you. You get the best phone calls BEFORE they start calling your competitors. Be the first in line at the feeding trough.

When you invest in owning the best online real estate, you start automatically winning the sweetest projects. The best deals come your way first.

Google’s First Page Lists Fewer and Fewer Companies; How We Use this to Your Advantage

In August 2015, Google changed the number of companies listed in the local pack from 7 to 3.  This is just one change of many that have reduced the number of companies listed on Googles' first page.

In 2018, Google added a "carousel" of videos to many searches. This made it easier for smart companies to get more exposure on Google's first page results.

Clients for Life: We Work Exclusively With Only One Business per Region

We believe our clients are our partners. That's why we only work with one business in a category for any region. We work hard to help our clients win the lion's share of the business in their region. We want our clients to be the category king in their town.

Avoiding Penalties and Sketchy Short Term Practices

We do our best to follow the rules and stay away from short-term Google exploits. Which means some of our work can take time. SEO is an investment. Not a quick shot of sugar and caffeine, that gives a quick burst of energy and disappears after 30 minutes.

We're in it for the long haul. That's why our clients stay with us for a long time.
