The Team Began To Offer SEO Services

Search Engine Ranking Position (or SERP) became a major factor in determining the success or failure of an online business.

In 2004, the team behind Cleveland Web Works began to introduce SEO services to their clients. These ranged anywhere from basic title, description, and content optimization, to full out content production for clients on demand.

As this industry has evolved, we have as well, focusing on website speed and performance as a major factor in our SEO process in 2020 and beyond.

Responsive Web Design Takes Center Stage

The first known application of responsive web design was in 2001, by Audi. In 2009/2010 media queries (the technical bits that make responsive web design possible) were almost ready for prime time. 

In 2011, the team behind Cleveland Web works began developing some of the first mobile friendly, responsive designed sites to be used at large scale.

2013 has been termed “The Year of Responsive Design” but our team had already years of experience by the time the rest of the web was just catching on.

2013

Google Shakes Up SEO

By 2011, Google saw a massive rise in webspam that unethical SEO agencies were using to gain unearned rankings for their clients. In 2013, they released what they called the “Penguin” update to fight webspam.

Most agencies providing SEO services at that time were providing services to their clients that were in violation of Google’s Terms of Service and had those sites punished.

However, the team behind Cleveland Web Works did not have this problem as we provided purely “White Hat” SEO to our clients. Where others failed, our clients shined.

2015

Web Marketing Shifts From Globalization To Personalization

In 2015 world was more connected because of technology and rise of social networking, but marketing had to become more regionalized, and more localized, even more individualized, as consumers resist homogenization.

The team behind Cleveland Web Works saw this as a massive opportunity and began to help their clients connect to consumers in a way that was previously not possible. Individualized messaging, and providing REAL context for a discussion about a brand became key points of our advertising strategies that we used for our clients – AND IT WORKED!

2018

Mobile-First Web Design Becomes The First Priority

Already having nearly a decade of experience with responsive design, the team behind Cleveland Web Works knew it was time to start thinking about websites in a mobile-first mentality as that’s were most users would be experiencing them.
