The SideBacon Marketing Agency is an expert local SEO company backed by a hands-on owner with 27+ years of search optimization experience. We’re located in Bonita Springs, FL (Lee County). Ft Myers and Naples are the two largest cities closest to us. Nearby towns like Cape Coral and Estero, beachfront areas such as Bonita Beach, Barefoot Beach and Fort Myers Beach, and even the islands of Sanibel, Captiva, and Marco Island are all places where we provide local SEO services.
We can work remotely for any business worldwide, but we are able to visit companies in-person within Florida only. Miami, FL and Sarasota are two hours away. Tampa and Orlando are around 3 hours drive. We’re even willing to travel to Jacksonville to help you out!
The reason why we limit offering local SEO to only FL companies is because we have a unique strategic plan to get better rankings that other agencies do not utilize. We do not share this proprietary strategy to the general public because it is so powerful and it has been developed in-house here at SideBacon.

Not all SEO agencies in Florida are created equal. Many will claim to be the best or experts, but this form is website marketing is not an exact science. You can’t learn a simple formula that will work every single time.
Each site is unique. Your online business is one-of-a-kind and needs to be treated that way. SideBacon will closely examine your business, your goals, your industry, and the keyword phrases you want to target on Google Search. Then we will create a specialized plan just for you to optimize your website to improve your organic search rankings and traffic.
Buying PPC Ads vs Free Organic Search Traffic
It is quite common for websites to spend $1,000 – $10,000+ per month in PPC advertising with Google, Facebook, YouTube and other popular marketing platforms. That cost remains every single month or else website visitors disappear. Since you pay for each click, you are unable to grow your traffic without spending more money.
SEO is vastly superior to PPC ads and yet a lot of companies ignore it. Hiring an agency to optimize your site for better search rankings offers a higher ROI. SideBacon can offer optimization services to many websites for less than $750 per month, so the ongoing expense is more affordable. We even offer one-time services as well as consulting for small business that may be on a tighter budget. The huge benefit is that search rankings and traffic will usually grow over time, so that monthly expense continues to deliver a higher ROI the longer you use this marketing method.
27+ Years of Experience Matters
Google Search launched in 1998 (25 years ago in 2023). Our owner started building websites optimized for organic search traffic in 1996, before Google even existed! In 1996, Yahoo Search was king of the market. This means that our Google Search experience spans the entire lifetime of the company. You simply won’t find many agencies that can make that claim.
We have watched Google grow and change over the years. Updates to their algorithm happen frequently, and we have experienced every single one. This gives us extreme power because we can fairly accurately predict what may happen in future algorithm updates. We practice Proactive SEO and NOT Reactive! When you are a SideBacon client, your business will be able to stay one step ahead of your competition. This extra advantage can often mean the difference between a #1 Google Ranking or losing out to your competitors.
It can actually be risky to employ someone that doesn’t have extensive experience to optimize your site for organic search rankings. That lack of expertise can result in on-site or off-site SEO spam that will harm your search positions. When you trust SideBacon, you can rest comfortably knowing that we only use 100% white-hat strategies that won’t get your website penalized. When your site is optimized this way, you are much more likely to retain your listing positions for years or even decades into the future.
Content Marketing & Article Writing
A lot of search marketers are simply lazy and try to find the easiest way to trick a search engine into giving their site top rankings. Spam links, automated content, and/or extremely generic articles will NOT help your rankings anymore. At SideBacon, we have known this truth for 15+ years and share it with other FL businesses. Even if you find a way to trick Google, they’ll discover it eventually and wipe out your rankings in a future algorithm update. There is nothing worse than losing all of your organic traffic while you’re sleeping, but this has happened to countless webmasters.
One of the most important areas on your website where you cannot take shortcuts is with your content. Google and other search engines have a primary goal: deliver relevant results for a search query that actually answer the question or solve the problem sought by the searcher. This means that it is IMPOSSIBLE to get and retain top rankings unless your site is useful to your visitors. With high-quality content and well-organized articles, you can deliver that experience. Low-quality content can actually prevent your site from succeeding.
Research, organization, and relevant keyword targeting are extremely important to produce top-notch articles. We’re no stranger to this type of hard work at SideBacon, and your business can receive the benefits. Most of our SEO services include content writing, but we also offer standalone article writing. You simply won’t find higher quality outsourced content, so we can load your site with any amount or even drip-feed it over time to keep your site fresh. If you’re optimizing a website for search rankings and ignoring your content, you will find it extremely difficult to get top 10 Google positions.
High-Quality Backlink Building
In December 2022, Google made yet another algorithm change to increase the detection of link spam. Links in blog comments, website directories, or link networks are much more likely to get viewed as a spammy backlink by Google now. When this happens, Google will neutralize the ranking power that those links would normally give to your website.
Unfortunately, too many other SEO companies in Florida depend on those types of spam links to get top ranking positions. If you’ve been working another agency and noticed a rankings decrease between Jan 2023 – Mar 2023, this is likely the reason. Contact SideBacon to get a free search audit and let us fix this problem for you!
Our link building strategy exclusively targets high-DA domains in a relevant industry with a low toxicity score. While this takes more time and effort, the end result is simply undeniable. 100 or even 1,000 backlinks can be completely worthless, while 10 or 20 amazing links can propel your site to the #1 position on Google. Quality certainly beats quality here.
Amateurs can often fake search engine optimization services, but they’ll run into major issues with technical SEO. This involves the coding, web host server, and other backend functionality that controls a website. Missing just one major configuration error can have dire consequences for search rankings. It isn’t enough to paste a text article into a web page. HTML coding is needed to organize and add style to the content to make it easier to read and more appealing. This coding also helps to markup keywords to make them more important to a search crawling bot.
Most website owners and even many website creators today have no idea how to do coding, much less manage the backend technical aspects of their website. A web designer may not even have the skills necessary to properly perform this type of work. Content management systems like WordPress and third-party ecommerce stores like eBay, Amazon, Etsy and Shopify have taken most of the technical requirements out of building a website. As a result, users of these systems are lulled into a false sense of security because they assume that the software is going to properly take care of the techie side for them. When something does go wrong, the only indication may be poor performing search rankings.
The owner and CEO of SideBacon is a technical SEO master, even with content management systems. He personally reviews the websites of 100% of our clients for tech errors that can be devastating to search rankings. He has been coding websites from scratch for 27+ years and can build a complete website using the default Notepad program in Windows. Custom WordPress themes, WP plugins, and even completely customized eCommerce stores are his specialty, and he even has 10+ years of experience managing hosting servers. There are ZERO technical SEO problems that he cannot solve.
We can create any kind of WordPress website to your liking. Whether you want a custom design to impress clients or need custom plugins to add new features, we can handle projects of any complexity.
WordPress and WooCommerce make a perfect combination to create eCommerce sites that are easy to manage and customize. Very few marketing and design agencies offer this service, but we actually specialize in it here at SideBacon! We can also help you create and manage custom shops on third-party ecommerce networks such as Amazon, Shopify, Etsy, eBay and more.
