At Hive Digital we like to say that we take companies from “Zero to One Million.” It’s not just a tagline, it’s something that we actually do. We were founded in 2002 and, from our earliest days, have been focused on search engine optimization (SEO). We’ve earned a reputation of taking companies from launch to a million dollars in sales. It’s a reputation that has led us to work with such widely known organizations as the Better Business Bureau.

And, it’s a reputation that, most recently, led to our selection by Clutch, a Washington, DC-based B2B research firm, as one of the Top 15 SEO consultants in the United States, based on our thought leadership in this area. This unique research focuses on consulting firms with proven thought leadership in the SEO community. The research leverages Clutch’s proprietary Leaders Matrix methodology, mapping each firm’s focus on providing value-added SEO services against their ability to deliver on clients’ expectations.

Clutch’s assessment is based on over a dozen quantitative and qualitative factors, including

  1. company experience
  2. client list
  3. industry recognition
  4. client reviews
  5. market presence.

There are plenty of firms and individuals out there these days selling SEO services, all claiming to be better than the next. The reality, of course, is that only a few really stand out above the crowd. Hive Digital is proud to be continually recognized as one of these firms by reputable sources such as Moz and Clutch.

It would be hard for me to find another firm that understands Google analytics and the various KPIs [key performance indicators] as well as Hive Digital.

Why did Hive Digital make the cut for Clutch? Tim Clarke, research manager at Clutch pointed out: “Each agency included boasts individuals with a proven track record of speaking at the top conferences, authoring successful books and being featured prominently on industry-leading blogs.”

But we don’t just talk a good game. We deliver. Hive Digital’s commitment to excellence enables us to deliver top results that will bring a higher return on investment to any web marketing project. Given the high level of confidentiality our clients request, we generally don’t get the opportunity to share their success and appreciation for our efforts.  Respectfully Clutch agreed to honor this with our clients, and several agreed to be interviewed.   We appreciate those clients who took the time to share their experience, as without their willingness to participate, we would not have been able to be a part of this.  We’re proud to be recognized by Clutch in this manner, but what makes us even more proud are the comments and stories our clients have shared about us and our services.

For instance, one client, a nutraceutical company, said:

“Through the years, our investment has been in the thousands of dollars, maybe the hundreds of thousands. We’ve always received a good return on our investment. If there were ever times that I thought things could be better, they’ve always been very open to hearing what I had to say. We would talk about ways that we could implement new ideas.”

Another client, a nonprofit digital marketing firm said:

“Hive Digital has a great depth of knowledge on the topic in a way that only people who specialize it can know the topic, all the ins and outs, how the Google algorithm is operating, etc. It would be hard for me to find another firm that understands Google analytics and the various KPIs [key performance indicators] as well as Hive Digital.”

Obviously others agree! Thanks, Clutch, for including us on your 2016 list of the TOP SEO Consultants, and congratulations to the other companies that were selected! It’s an exclusive list and we’re very glad to be part of it. To learn more about us, and the services we provide, we encourage you to visit our profile on the Clutch site.
