Murrells Inlet SEO | What is it?

SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimization. Search Engine Optimization is a technical and practical marketing application to a specific website or webpage designed to improve its visibility in Google by meeting various ranking criteria.

AAERO is a local Murrells Inlet SEO. We started dabbling in SEO well before it became popular. Sean Hakes started as an SEO Specialist in 2001, where he helped various businesses thrive online. Back then, great rankings were more easily accomplished. Because of that, non-technical SEOs entered the field and learned how to quickly manipulate Google, which is why various updates have been pushed out over the years, ultimately making it significantly more difficult for those SEOs to manipulate the search results.

While many of the ‘black hat’ or unethical SEOs were pushed out, many continued to sell a service, praying on business owners being nieve and relying on fancy sales pitches designed to cost more and do less.

At AAERO, we don’t have fancy sales pitches and promises that will remain empty. We’re the experts for the experts and one of the most trusted search engine optimization experts who focus on Google SEO, YouTube SEO, and Amazon SEO (yes, it’s a thing).

Murrells Inlet isn’t your typical market. This is one of the many reasons why you can’t rely on someone who doesn’t reside in the area to understand it. It’s mostly seasonal and driven primarily by tourism except for professional services, contractors, etc.

With just under 10,000 full-time residents, you must partner with an SEO who can tap into surrounding markets and has a creative drive. That’s precisely what AAERO is and what we do. This is why we’ve become the #1 trusted search engine optimization firm in the greater Myrtle Beach area.

Feeling motivated? Let’s talk. We’ll provide you with a casual yet professional review of your current efforts.

Blog // How to Delete & Remove Unwanted Content

We help businesses, brands, and invidiously fight back against defamatory, unethical, and unflattering content listed on

GripeO is an online complaint site that allows anyone to anonymously trash just about anyone or anything they want.

Sound familiar? The GripeO model isn’t anything new. Remember RipOffReport (RoR)?

At first glance, you’d think GripeO was unbias. Why? When you visit their site, the first thing you see is “Honest, In-depth, Accurate & Unbiased Reviews,” however, GripeO is anything but honest, accurate, or unbiased. To test the site out, we anonymously submitted an accurate, unbiased review that was quickly deleted from the pending queue.

The problem with sites like GripeO is they have no moderation (besides deleting positive reviews) and they allow anyone to say anything about anyone. Like RipOffReport, GripeO is likely protected by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

“The law states that sites like Ripoff Report aren’t publishers, like newspapers, which could be sued for libel for printing falsehoods. Rather, the law treats Ripoff Report and sites as carriers, like Google or Yahoo, which aren’t legally liable for what outsiders post on the site,” said Aaron Minc, Founder & Attorney at Minc Law.

What is Revenge SEO?

Revenge SEO isn’t a new concept. In short, it’s when someone who knows search engine optimization, optimizes negative content designed to harm one’s reputation. It could be made up, blatantly false content, or truthful content that’s been stored away for years in a closet.

Revenge SEO is used a lot by politicians. Politicians will hire a research firm to dig up negative content on their opponent and make sure it’s visible in search for potential voters to see.

Defending against a Revenge SEO campaign requires a bit of time, and most importantly, skill. Your typical Reputation Management campaign might not work for Revenge SEO due to the fact that there’s usually an experienced SEO on the other end of the attack making sure that the site ranks favorably.

If you’ve found a negative piece of content that doesn’t seem to go away, be sure to check out Sean Michael Consulting, Revenge SEO Defense services.

Searching for Myrtle Beach Fishing Charters? Introducing, reelmates™

Imagine traveling to your favorite destination to fish and instead of dropping potentially, thousands of dollars on a paid charter, you can pull up an app on your phone and find local, highly skilled recreational fishermen who are willing to take you out with them for free? While it’s not required, we recommend offering to split fuel cost which will leave reelmates™ fishing for less!

reelmates / reel mates

How reelmates™ got its start

The idea of reelmates™ was born by its Founder, Sean Michael after moving from landlocked Colorado to Myrtle Beach, SC to live his dream on the water.

Shortly after moving to Myrtle Beach Sean purchased a Sea Pro 259 DLX. While Sean was no stranger to fishing, he was newer as an operator and angler to inshore and offshore fishing. Seeking help, Sean jumped on a various local fishing forums seeking advice, tips etc. Many of the local anglers were not helpful, most of them offered rude responses claiming they had spend a lifetime learning the local waters and unless he paid them, they were not interested in helping or offering advice.

In fact, one local charter captain trolled him trying to suppress any effort to do a business in the saltwater fishing industry in Myrtle Beach.

Later, Sean met a local angler offline who had fished the area his entire life. He knew the waters well, and was an avid fishermen. After talking, Sean realized this local fishing expert was dying to go offshore and was eager to trade out his fishing knowledge for fishing offshore with Sean. The rest was history.

Reelmates™ (Reel Mates) was born to connect and network anglers of skill levels and needs. Like Sean, there are a lot of boat owners who are looking for fishing buddies. In retrospect, there are a lot of anglers who don’t have boats but would be more than welcome to go out with someone who does and chip in on gas (while not required).

That’s where the reelmates™ slogan was born; fish more, spend less.

At reelmates™ you get to fish more because in many cases, operating cost can be shared among mates. You’ll ultimately spend significantly less than a charter.

While the reelmates app is getting its final touches, a Myrtle Beach reelmates Facebook Group was recently created to help mates connect today. Join now, it’s free.

What is Freedom Boat Club?

What is SEO (Search Engine Optimization)?

SEO stands for search engine optimization, a process designed to improve a site’s placement in the SERPs (search engine results page). SEO services are designed to enhance your web presence by increasing your website’s traffic through search engine ranking improvement. SEO a highly specialized service that can be done through an SEO Expert who will optimize your web pages, make them more attractive to potential customers, and increase the trust of your website with Google.

How much does SEO cost?

SEO fees will vary by provider and experience. Less experienced providers who may not implement Google’s best practices generally bill a few hundred dollars per month or less. Besides having a lack of experience, low-cost SEO providers typically cut corners in areas like link development which can leave a website prone to a Google penalty.

Besides experience, SEO cost vary by industry a market. That is because the level of competition can change drastically depending on what you do, and who you market to. For local businesses, legitimate SEO firms will charge no less than $500 per month. A national or international campaign will require a minimum budget of $2,500 to $5,000 month.

Is SEO a Cost?

Contrary to popular belief, SEO is an investment rather than a cost. A well tuned SEO campaign should not only pay for itself, it should give you a significant return on what your investing. If it’s not, it might be time to consider a new SEO.

How Long Does SEO Take?

The time it takes to see drastic improvement really depends on the condition of your website. Here are some things we look at when determining how long your SEO campaign should take to pay for itself, and more…

  1. How long has your website been live?
  2. Do you do any additional advertising?
  3. Have you worked with an SEO before?
  4. Are your backlinks toxic, or helpful?
  5. Is your industry competitive?
  6. What’s the gap to fill between your site and your biggest competitor?
  7. How large is your target market? Is it one city, is it small, is it big, is it national or international?

All of these questions can help us better understand how and when your site will react to SEO.

According to Google, you should allow 4 to 12 months for your SEO to first implement improvements to your website, and see meaningful results from those efforts.

Here’s an example of a local SEO campaign that improved quickly. In less than a month, this client achieved the top 3 positions. This client had the following items in their favor:

  1. The website (domain) was more than a year old
  2. The client did not have prior SEO or toxic links
  3. The clients market size was less than 300,000 people
  4. The clients competitors didn’t have great SSEO

As you can see from Feb to March the site for tracked keywords improved in Google by 1,337 positions across 27 keywords. Most of these keywords landed #1 or #2 spots.

Your results can vary but hiring a qualified, and experienced SEO will help determine whether or not your website will rank quickly.
