“Leah has been a tremendous help as I’ve been working on SEO. Her ability to know what you need, plus give precise information to get your website up and running smoothly with driving people to your website is incredible. I have a better flow of customers now because of her SEO coaching. She made SEO easy to understand. I highly recommend her!”
Divine Heart Connections“SEO is my weakness. When I learned that SEO was being covered with Leah, I found myself hoping that I can recover from the holes that are always left when we relocate. I learned so much! Leah was by far one of most thorough teachers that I have ever worked with. Leah hit on some many items that are easily adjustable, make sense, and align by perfectly with my business. Leah, I truly appreciate the knowledge that I gained from you. It was all so enlightening!!”

“I’ve had a chance to meet and learn from Leah during a Newborn And Beyond Photography retreat. The retreat had a long list of amazing teachers and vendors but what I loved the most and learned the most from was Leah’s class. I actually told my friends that the whole retreat would’ve been worth the investment for her class alone! She is extremely knowledgeable and willing to share all she knows. Friendly, open to questions ( a lot of those 🙂 ) and willing to go the extra mile to help her students. I am extremely grateful for being able to learn from her and I hope to be able to attend more of her classes. Highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn more about the business / SEO side of photography.”

Ok, back to my story. Don’t worry, it has a happy ending! I built my first photography website, www.lseverson.com, back in 2004. It routinely topped the Google search result pages for my specialty, which was baby photography in Indianapolis and Carmel, Indiana. So I did what a lot of small business owners do when there’s a certain part of their business that’s humming along smoothly.
I stopped paying attention to it.

SEO Student Results
It’s one thing to have people say great things about what they learned in my SEO courses and coaching. Since I’m asking you to part with your hard-earned money, I feel like it’s important to show you actual results.
These graphics show the growth of a few of my student’s websites as they implement the SEO techniques I teach.
First up are the growth stats for Milligan Counseling. Tori Milligan is a professional counselor with a small private practice in St. Louis, Missouri. She had a website, but it wasn’t driving any traffic. We worked together to find a list of keywords her potential clients would be using. We checked her site’s rankings for those keywords. She ranked greater than 101 in all of them. That means you can go all the way to page ten of Google and still not find her website. For all intents and purposes, her website was invisible to search engines. Tori followed the steps in my SEO class and worked diligently on her site. In just 3 months, she went from nowhere on Google to page one for two of her desired keywords. And her other keywords are climbing fast too as she continues to implement what she learned.
“I am amazed at how much my site has risen since I implemented the simple steps suggested by Leah. The work was not difficult. She explained it in a way that was easy for me – not a tech person at all– to understand and implement. I’ll continue updating my site and adding new, fresh content as Leah suggested until I’m on page one for all my search terms now that I know how to do it.”
Genny Ward is a photographer in the Fort Lauderdale area. She was paying an SEO consultant to help her with her rankings, but still wasn’t getting anywhere. We tweaked some things to get more of her keywords into the coveted “top 3 of Google search” spots. The number of users on her site went from 147 in December to 256 in January!
“Leah has helped me with my SEO and various ways to implement different strategies on my website. She’s knowledgeable and very easy to understand as SEO can be difficult for me. Thank you for all you help!”
You’re welcome Genny!
Mariela Duval is a photographer in the Atlanta, Georgia area. She “real” job is full-time pharmacist but she’s working hard to grow her studio as she plans to retire from pharmacy in the next few years. Mariela hired me for some one-on-one SEO Coaching.
“After taking an in-person SEO class from Leah, I was very impressed with the information she provided and knew right away I needed further guidance specifically to my website. I hired Leah to review my website and my Google My Business profile. We set up two separate conversations to discuss her recommendations. Leah had lots of excellent information and advice as we reviewed my website and content. She made several suggestions on using keywords, naming images, and content on the website that would be specific to target my audience. We did the same for Google My Business page. I have been so impressed to see how changes that were easy to implement have made such a difference in my SEO and the number of inquiries I am receiving. I highly recommend Leah if you want to work on SEO and understand how to move up in Google. Leah makes it simple, easy to follow and easy to understand. I have loved working with Leah!”
Angela McNaul is a photographer in Virginia. She had been working on her SEO and had made it to page one for several of her keywords. However, she was having trouble breaking into those top three Google spots that she coveted. Angela implemented some easy changes to her optimization plan, and now her low-ranking pages are climbing and more of her page one results are now in the top 3.
