How SEO Combat Started

In 2020, what started as a casual conversation led to something special, the birth of SEO Combat. For every website owner or blogger struggling, we’ve been in their shoes. We understand the pain, the amount of discipline, and the rollercoaster ride of emotions during this long journey.

We struggled for years sacrificing thousands of hours to endless nights and mornings. Through all of that, we’ve learned and adapted to the constant changes in SEO. As a team, we experimented together on figuring out the best and most reliable strategies for our clients. We trained our hand-picked writers and editors to ensure our clients will benefit from our services.

What Makes SEO Combat Different?

Our team of SEO specialists has grown over 20+ websites within the last several years. With nearly 2,000,000+ words of content and over 1,000+ articles, we have studied how each and every piece of content ranks, the best optimization strategies, and a hint of our secret recipe for long-term growth.


Unlike many of the “SEO companies” out there, we discovered that a high percentage of these companies provide poor SEO services in a way that could penalize a website on Google Search. In fact, one of our team members reached out to local businesses and discovered that many of these companies aren’t doing SEO properly.

We’re a team of SEO enthusiasts, bloggers, and strategists – we understand your position because we were once in your shoes. Time is moving forward, SEO is constantly changing, and poor SEO tactics are a thing of the past.

Google is getting smarter every day.
