Introduction: Founded by one of the internet’s most successful and sought after marketers, Dr. David Thornton, SEO Trust applies David’s unique set of skills and online experiences to ensure the success of every client, while offering an "ironclad" money back guarantee based solely on the happiness of our clients. Under David's leadership, SEO Trust has become a nationally recognized SEO agency that provides sophisticated marketing services for small and mid-sized organizations, from international enterprise corporations to technology start-ups and E-Commerce businesses across the country and abroad. We utilize industry leading SEO strategies and methodologies, while leveraging advanced technology platforms to help our clients achieve aggressive results. We have a proven track record of success in competitive verticals and remain committed to adding value to our clients’ digital marketing campaigns through creativity, dedication, and an unparalleled desire to be the best at what we do. Our mission at SEO Trust is to provide unparalleled creative design and internet marketing services to our clients. We take pride in delivering extraordinary and maintainable results that allow our clients to reach their goals. We offer high performance strategies that empower our clients to drive business and increase their market share through increased online visibility. As the former president of a national cancer research organization and founder and president of a nonprofit medical research foundation, I spent a small fortune on software and educational programs that taught me how to become a successful internet marketer. Within three years time, I was in the top 1% of all online earners, and lauded as an expert in organic traffic. While I enjoyed the financial rewards that came from being a traffic expert, I received greater satisfaction teaching other internet marketers how to harness the power of highly targeted traffic via SEO and social media. The next logical step was my opening a global digital marketing and SEO agency, SEO Trust, which allows me to help both small and large business owners around the globe. What provides me the greatest satisfaction in this business is being able take a failing business and turning it into a financial powerhouse via the power of the Internet!

I have worked with MANY design/development agencies over the years. Most of them have not been pleasurable. SEO Trust has went above my expectations. I am truly a happy customer and will do repeat business in the future. I have recommended this company to others.

I have been extremely happy with David and his team in helping our business grow. They have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Every time I ask for something, the turn around time has been impressive. Even when I didn't ask for anything, they have always keep me in the loop as what is going on, where they are at, etc. I would highly recommend SEO Trust - they have my complete trust!!!

Due to all of the local competition, our brokerage office in San Diego was having a difficult time staying on the first page of Google. We hired a few different national seo agencies over the past four years, all claiming to be "seo experts," to no avail. When searching earlier this year for a reputable seo agency in Southern California, we quickly discovered that SEO Trust ranked #1 all over the internet as "America's Local SEO Expert," with positive reviews from all types of customers across the country. Thankfully, we hired SEO Trust about four months ago and we are already #1 on Google, Google Mobile, Google Maps, Bing, and Yahoo for at least three competitive keywords in the San Diego area. In fact, our brokerage is #1 in Google's local business listing for San Diego. Thanks to Dr. David Thornton and his entire team at SEO Trust, our client base in San Diego has experienced significant growth over the past few months, which is why I gladly recommend SEO Trust. Dr. David and his team of specialists are the real deal...actual "seo experts" with a proven track record.
SEO Trust's reply
Tim, thank you for your very detailed and honest review. I am so glad to hear that your San Diego office is signing up more clients based on your increased rankings in the SERPs. The exciting news is that we’ve only just begun! My team and I remain committed to ensure your online success!

We hired Dave and his website design team to overhaul our Shopify website, and what we received was nothing short of amazing. Not only did Dave give us a great price for the new web design and development, he included all the tedious onsite search engine optimization work at no additional cost. We couldn't be more happier with Dave and all the guys at SEO Trust that worked so hard on redesigning and building our online store. As long as we're in business, SEO Trust will continue to receive our business!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    SEO Trust offers multiple SEO and digital marketing packages, as well as a la carte services, designed to increase user engagement, enhance your brand's awareness, and increase both your online and offline sales. All packages and prices are available at the SEO Trust website.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After speaking with a prospective client, I conduct a comprehensive audit on their website, followed by performing all the necessary SEO (search engine optimization) work, such as verifying that their website is mobile responsive. In addition, I conduct extensive keyword research to discover the competitive keywords which we could rank for at the top of Google, Bing, etc. I then recommend the production of a professional review video which I would quickly rank at the top of Google and Yahoo, followed by syndicating the review video across 4,000 or more social platforms and video embed sites, whose links are then indexed over a period of ten days or more. To achieve an immediate first page ranking on Google, I create a YouTube Live Event, containing the most competitive keywords from within the client's niche, coupled with the client's website and vital contact data. While I would schedule the YouTube live event to take place after a period of thirty days, the live event's description and thumbnail would immediately rank and remain at the top of Google and YouTube, generating traffic to the client's website. While there are many other tasks to perform when it comes to SEO web development, content marketing, social media marketing, and video marketing, such as ensuring the client has claimed a listing in Google Maps and has an active Google+ Page, I would then encourage my client to approve the creation of a custom mobile app (Android and iOS), which would be created in house as well. In summary, the results of my initial SEO services plan guarantees drastic increases in my client's rankings, traffic, brand awareness, and sales.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Recognized as one of the most successful online marketers whom is consistently in the top 2% of all online earners, Dr. Thornton is constantly sought after as a private coach, teaching his exclusive marketing methods to internet marketers around the globe.
