Consulting For Our Agency

One of the few "good guys" of SEO and internet marketing, and there aren't many out there....we've had plenty of bad experiences with the bad ones, so I'm pleased to write this positive review as Scott Hendison/Search Commander has been very good to us.

Our online marketing agency has been using Scott for high level consulting work over the last couple years and he's brought tons of value to our business. He knows his stuff, and is always ahead of the curve. He's the guy you want to use if you're looking for long term value from your internet marketing efforts, not another "fly by night" marketing agency that is here today and gone tomorrow. We use him when we need high level opinions/out of the box problem solving, and are always pleased by the level of service we get, how he goes above and beyond the call of duty and how fair he is with his billing. At the end of the day when we've exchanged money, we had a good taste in our mouth and felt good about paying.

Want to chat about Scott Hendison/Search Commander? Feel free to get a hold of me. I'd be MORE than happy to talk about exactly what he's done for our business and how he's treated us.

I highly recommend Scott without hesitation

Scott has been an invaluable asset to our businesses. He came highly referred by a celebrity SEM insider who we turn to for direction with big business decisions like finding a trustworthy, and cutting edge SEO.

After our initial engagement, Scott wasted no time in taking a deep dive into our website traffic data and came back with a comprehensive report that included action items and clear explanations of everything we needed to know for taking the next steps to get our sites tuned up for the best possible SEO - both onsite and offsite.

I highly recommend Scott without hesitation for anyone who is looking to gain a clear understanding of where they stand with their SEO and what the next steps are improve your search ranking.

I honestly can't say enough good things about Scott...

Scott is a super-knowledgeable & experienced SEO, a Wordpress expert, and a nice guy to boot.

I first met Scott at an SEMpdx social mixer the week after I moved here and over the last 3 years I've been continually impressed with his SEO skills and willingness to share knowledge. Scott's also an entertaining and informative speaker.

Scott is someone I can definitely recommend without hesitation.

Beyond Consulting... A Mentor

I'm a web developer and an SEO consultant. Most of us in the industry see each other as peers. Scott is a mentor as far as I'm concerned. He knows more about search marketing and web development than the vast majority of "consultants" out there. He's honest and always right on the mark with where to go and what to do.

If your business needs a comprehensive presence and plan for the web.. this is your guy.

If you're an SEO consultant or web anything, this is also your guy...

Excellent Speaker

I have had the opportunity to see Scott present on various search related topics over the last 5 years. In every instance Scott did a fantastic job of presenting in an entirely unique way. Scott always does a great job of customizing his presentation to fit the audience. I most definitely recommend him.

Solid SEO & WordPress advice

I occasionally turn to Scott for reliable support for WordPress and SEO advice. I can get by on my own most of the time, but when I'm stumped, Scott saves me with straight forward, honest recommendations that puts me back on the right track. I also appreciate and use this SEO Automatic tool, WordPress Plugin and subscribe to his newsletter -- 3 more things I'd recommend.

Scott's on top of his game

I've worked with Scott on the SEMpdx board for a couple of years now, and there are very few people as thoroughly up to date on search marketing--especially organic search, and WordPress--as Scott.

Up over 1200%

In 2004, we set up a new domain name, and I was discouraged that we were not making headway with search engine rankings. Luckily I stumbled across Scott’s website and that all changed.

Scott had several suggestions to help us break down the walls that were hindering our results, and he created new programs for us to help optimize our website pages.

Since we started with Scott we went from ‘not being found’ for important keywords like, ‘greenhouse kits’ and ‘greenhouse supplies’, to landing in the number one position on Google!

We also have more unique visitors to our website than ever – up over 1200% since we started working with Scott.

I have enjoyed working with Scott and appreciate his honesty and integrity. I highly recommend him to anyone needing help with organic SEO.

We went from unfindable to Top Ten

I found Scott through Google a year ago. His straight forward approach to reviewing our website for SEO was very instructive and easy to follow.

After a year of having him work on our site we have seen a dramatic increase in site activity as well as the stress free ability to trust him to stay up to date with all the newest advances. Our site went from unfindable to top 10 in most of our keywords in a matter of months.

We highly recommend him as a consultant for anyone wanting to increase your search rankings.

California Air Duct Cleaning

Over Three Years On Top

My business didn't even have a website when I began working with Scott and Brad, and I was spending a fortune in the yellow pages.

Today, I am consistently at the top of all of the search engines for air duct and dryer vent cleaning for Sacramento and my surrounding area, and my business is thriving.

The videos that Scott provides with my reports each month are a nice personal touch that help me understand exactly what they're doing, and even encourages me to be more involved.

I've learned a lot!

Speaking with Scott, reading his articles, and using the tools and plugins has greatly increased my knowledge for developing new websites.

My customers appreciate that I'm able to set their sites up for SEO during development rather than having to hire a separate consultant and have part of the site work redone. Thanks Search Commander!

More successful than I could have hoped for!

I have a number of websites in various industries that Scott has helped me with to increase traffic and sales from my websites.

Scott is extremely knowledgeable and approachable and has been able to help my sites become way more successful than I could have hoped for!

Every time I get a new website I always let Scott work his magic. He also has some great software and SEO plugins to help you promote your own sites too. I have had a few SEOs working on my sites but Scott is by far the best. Recommended.

Over the Top

If this testimonial sounds over the's because Scott is over the top in his performance. Based on my research, I had high expectations he would do a good job. But he has been beyond anything I hoped for. First, he is wonderfully easy to work with. Remarkably easy-going and available. Beyond that, his wizardry catapulted my business from almost nothing to very full, from 1 new client every few months, to a new client EVERY WEEK. I earned back my investment in Scott's fees in a matter of weeks.
And now I recommend him to everyone I know.
