How Our Ranking System Works

We analyzed 438 SEO companies based on the followed categories:

1. SEO Best Practices

In short, does the SEO company practice what they preach? We analyzed each company to see if they had an SSL certificate, a mobile-friendly website design, and if their site loaded below 3 seconds.

2. SEO Performance

We then searched “CITY SEO company” (Chicago SEO company) and awarded points if each SEO firm was ranking. We also look at the industry trends, content marketing strategy, total organic search website traffic according to Ahrefs.

3. Backlink Profile

Then we used Ahrefs to look at how well each SEO brand handles its own link building strategy (fair enough to predict future customer satisfaction). Our team members analyzed every SEO agencies Domain Rating (DR) and total referring domains. Both indicate how effective an agency is at acquiring links (a critical factor for SEO performance).

4. Reviews

Lastly, we reviewed total Google My Business reviews and the average score.
