SEO Company in Greenville, SC
If you are a business owner, there's probably a good chance that you have asked yourself this question before. It's a question that many entrepreneurs ask, and for good reason.
According to a recent study, the first five organic search results on Google account for about 67% of all website clicks. With more than 2.3 trillion Google searches in 2019 alone, it has become clear that if customers can't find your website online, you're missing out on a huge opportunity to grow your business.
The good news is, with a trustworthy SEO company in Charleston on your side and an effective SEO campaign, your website can show up on the first page of a Google search. The bad news is, many "SEO agencies" offering such services provide clients with outdated, a la carte options at ridiculous prices - and good luck getting them on the phone if you have a question that needs answering.
Unlike some of our competitors, mediocre customer service and ineffective digital marketing strategies aren't in our digital DNA.
Our innovative, all-inclusive SEO patented technology and services work together to form a digital marketing machine, unlike anything on the market. We call it Local Magic®.
What local SEO services in Greenville can you expect? Keep reading to find out.
Comprehensive Link Building
Most veteran SEO professionals agree that one of the most important signals that Google uses to rank websites is backlinks. Backlinking is essentially a link that is created when one website links to another. According to recent statistics, 91% of webpages that don't get organic traffic are because they don't have any backlinks. Mr. Marketing solves this problem for you through comprehensive backlinking techniques, which adds authority to your website over time so that Google recognizes your website as trustworthy in your industry.
Online Review Management
Positive online reviews can be incredibly beneficial for your business. 93% of online shoppers say that online reviews play a part in their purchasing decisions. The problem is, many business owners don't have the time to request online reviews from happy clients, manage those reviews, or display them on their company's website.
That's where Mr. Marketing's Review Manager comes in. Review Manager is the world's first comprehensive reputation management system, allowing you to get more from your reviews. With Review Manager, you have the ability to request reviews via SMS and Email, track pending review requests, and even publish your most favorable reviews right to your website, with a few taps on your phone.
As local SEO consultants in Greenville, we see a lot of good-looking websites. While a website might be attractive on the surface, it needs to be optimized on the backend for it to have a better chance of showing up in a Google search. Our team of skilled web developers will optimize your website both on the surface and "under the hood", so that your business gets noticed by customers who are already looking for the products or services you sell.
Website Hosting & Updates
To make life a little easier, we are happy to host your website on our servers, so you don't have to hunt down a separate hosting service. If you have updates that need to be applied to your website, we will handle the heavy lifting for you. We even implement security measures to prevent hackers from accessing your data.
Google Ads Management
Here's a fact you might not know - Google controls more about 71% of the search engine market. If you want customers to find your business online, you need to show up in Google searches. As part of a comprehensive digital marketing strategy in Greenville available from Mr. Marketing, Google Ads can be an excellent wayfor new clients to discover your business both on mobile devices and on desktops. Much like online reviews, however, managing a Google Ads campaign can be burdensome and time consuming for busy entrepreneurs. Our team will work closely with you to figure out the best ways to use Google Ads to your businesses advantage so that you can focus on day-to-day tasks while we grow your presence online.
Does Your Local SEO Company in Greenville Care?

For that reason, we also include monthly digital business coaching as part of our Local Magic package. That way, your knowledge of digital marketing grows alongside your businesses website rankings.

Did you know South Carolina’s largest nativity scene with life-size figures is right here in Greenville, SC? See the beautifully carved figures at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Taylors through early February.
Christmas is centered around nativity scenes and for good reason, right? The birth of Christ is why Christmas is celebrated around the world and while there are many beautiful nativity scenes, the one at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Taylors is incredibly unique because the figures in the nativity are all life-sized and carved by an expert woodworker in Germany.
The Great Nativity
The Great Nativity was revealed last year after parishioners at Prince of Peace raised money through private donations to commission the pieces, which were carved by Johanne Albl of ALBL Oberammergau, who has been in the business of woodworking and sacred art in Germany since 1556.
There are 13 figures in total: the shepherd, Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, the camel, ox, donkey, three wise men, the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove, an angel, and a sheep.
The three wise men, also life-size, didn’t show up on time last year but they made it for this year’s nativity and are currently situated in the back of the spacious church, making their way to the nativity scene.
The biggest sculpture in the Great Nativity is the camel, weighing in at 1,600 pounds, which is actually more than most camels weigh in real life. You can’t climb on the camel (I asked).
About the Artist
Johanne Albl of ALBL Oberammergau carved the Great Nativity from polychrome Lindenwood. The set is the largest ever commissioned in the family’s history. They are also one of the world’s leading firms for sacred art and architecture.
The Albl family has been woodcarvers in Germany since the mid-1500s. They are currently in their 14th generation of artists and grew from a small village in the Bavarian Alps.
How to See the Great Nativity
The Great Nativity at Prince of Peace can be seen in the church anytime between 7 am and 7 pm every day, and will be up between Sunday, December 4, 2022 until February 2, 2023, the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple.
“Christmas is a busy time for everyone and if you want a moment of peace in the craziness of the holiday season, come to the biggest nativity in South Carolina so that we can all be reminded of the innocence of a child during this beautiful season of joy and peace,” said Father Christopher Smith, pastor at Prince of Peace Catholic Church.
Visitors are asked to be respectful when viewing the nativity since the church is a place of worship. The public is welcome at any time to visit, and is warmly invited to a candlelight celebration of Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve or any of the Masses held at the Church
For more in-depth knowledge of Prince of Peace, the public are welcome to join Church Tours, which will happen on Thursday, December 15th and Saturday, December 17th at 7 pm with Deacon Michael Thompson. All are encouraged to attend.

GREENVILLE — The boutique hotel slated for the corner of North Markley and Rhett streets in the West End of downtown Greenville has delayed its ground-breaking.
“The instability of construction costs” disrupted construction of the 134-room hotel a few hundred feet from Fluor Field, Brad Weiser, a principal with the hotel’s management company, told The Post and Courier.
The project intended to break ground in November 2022, but the developers “wanted to wait a little bit until [construction costs] settled down,” Weiser said. “I think it was the right decision and feels like prices have stabilized in the construction world.”
The developers are preparing to submit building permits with the city.
The goal is to begin at the end of the first quarter or start of the second quarter of 2023. Weiser expects the hotel to be complete sometime between the end of 2024 or beginning of 2025.
“We’re anxious to start to see the dirt start moving,” he said.
The timeline for the hotel has been hampered before.
It was first presented to the city’s Design Review Board in early 2020, but the ensuing pandemic led the developers to modify the project mid-2021.
Beyond the rooms, the hotel will have meeting and event spaces, a basement brewery and taproom, a restaurant, lobby coffee shop and pool deck. There will also be 26 condo units for sale.
California-based hospitality company Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants owns the property and Chicago-based Hostmark Hospitality Group will manage it.
FIVE FORKS — The idea had been marinating for years, but Lazaro Montoto just had to find the right time to bring it to life.
That’s how the owner of the forthcoming Pasta Project restaurant describes the fast-casual concept he has created with his wife, Shadid, and fellow restaurateurs, Kostas Pallis A and Maria Dialis.
The new restaurant, located at 330 Scuffletown Road across from the Publix shopping center, is slated to open in the spring.
It will bring a new kind of pasta experience to the Upstate, and perhaps beyond. The idea is to merge fresh, handmade pasta and scratch-made sauces with a fast-casual setting.
Pasta Project will feature counter service ordering, but with a comfortable restaurant space.
“You will come in and first thing you’ll see is someone making fresh pasta throughout the day,” Montoto said. “The kitchen will be visible from the dining room. As an order comes in, they will saute the pasta and ingredients, sauces will be ready. Everything homemade in house.”
Montoto is no stranger to the restaurant world.
The industry veteran opened his first Tropical Grille location in 2010, and now has branched out to more than 11 locations. The company is in the process of building five more restaurants in the Upstate, Charleston and in Charlotte, he said.
Tropical Grille has gained a following for its mastery of fresh and fast cuisine. Similarly, Pasta Project will root itself in the same from-scratch realm.
Montoto had been considering a pasta concept for years. A self-described Italian food lover, he’d always seen a void in the market for a pasta-centered place that was high quality but not white tablecloth.
When he became friends with Pallis A and Dialis, owners of Basilico Pizzeria and Italian Cuisine, the idea of doing it himself got pushed to the back burner.
“I won’t do anything that competes with somebody I consider a friend,” Montoto said of his business philosophy. “One day, I asked them, ‘What do you guys think about this idea? Now that I know you guys, it’s not something I can do without you.’ They fell in love with the idea.”
Pasta Project will feature salads, desserts and a few other Italian favorites, but the heart of the menu will be pasta.
Plans call for featuring six varieties daily, which will be prepared throughout the day by a designated pasta maker, with dishes ranging from $8 to around $15 depending on protein choice.
Guests will be able to choose from a variety of sauces as well, ranging from vodka and alfredo to marinara and carbonara. Mixing and matching is encouraged.
From there, the sky is almost the limit.
Pasta Project will feature a large selection of vegetables and proteins, including chicken, shrimp and house- made meatballs, with which a guest can create a truly custom pasta dish.
Ordering will take place at a counter, but guests will be able to watch their pasta creations being made via the open kitchen.
“Making pastas fresh, it adds a completely different flavor,” Montoto said. “There is nothing like fresh pasta. The flavor, the authenticity of it. It definitely changes the final product.”

GREENVILLE — An eclectically decorated downtown burger eatery has opened its doors.
Virginia-born bar and restaurant chain Jack Brown’s Beer and Burger Joint opened its second South Carolina location on Jan. 16 in downtown Greenville’s West End, next to Mellow Mushroom on Augusta Street.
The Jack Brown’s in Columbia’s Five Points district opened in 2022 in place of Cover 3, a sports bar that catered to a college crowd.
The menu is composed of about 100 bottled and canned beers, a dozen burgers made from American Wagyu beef, french fries, sweet potato fries and fried Oreos.
While there will be some domestic beers, general manager Samantha Sweet said the restaurant is trying to pair with local breweries to “stay as true as we can to this region.”
Sweet said the restaurant’s “overall goal is to be this basement bar.”
“We want you to feel like you’re walking into your best friend’s house,” Sweet said. “They’d know your name. They know how to talk to you. They know what you like.”
From the ceiling of the restaurant, a skeleton dangles with a telephone in its hand. A buck’s head is mounted on the back wall next to a hanging bicycle covered in multi-colored lights and a Hawaiian lei. Along the walls, shelves are lined with knick-knacks collected by one of Jack Brown’s co-founders, Aaron Ludwig.
When a new Jack Brown’s opens, Ludwig hand-selects the decor on each shelf himself, Sweet said. She personally likes the front of the vintage car that has been transformed into a custom-made tap system with six taps.
Jack Brown’s has 16 locations across Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Alabama, Ohio and South Carolina, with three additional restaurants coming soon, including Greenville.
Select community members have been invited to a soft opening on Jan. 14 before the general opening. It will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Neighborhood association fights back as bus transit facility starts construction

GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A historic Black neighborhood is continuing their battle against a bus maintenance facility.
Members of the New Washington Heights Neighborhood Association said the placement of the facility violates an agreement they’ve had with Greenville County leaders.
“That is hurting, disgusting and horrible,” said Charity Jones, Director for the Neighborhood Association
With construction beginning on a new Greenlink bus maintenance facility, on Arcadia Drive, in Greenville County, members of the association said they’re not backing down without a fight.
“Any given time at 6 o’clock in the morning, or anytime soon after that, we’re awakened by our floors moving like a mini earthquake,” said Angela Aiken, spokesperson for the association.
These residents said the county, the city and the transit authority are destroying a historic Black community.
“Was down in Mississippi, was that the last slave ship to dock? I would tell you no, Greenlink is the last slave ship to dock,” stated Aiken.
In 2013, the association said Greenville County approved a master plan for their community, preserving the history and green space.
Residents 7NEWS spoke with said they view the plan as an agreement with county leaders. To them, it’s been violated.
“I’m not sure I can agree with that, 2013 is 10 years ago, things change, situations evolve,” said Butch Kirven.
Greenville County Councilman Butch Kirven was on council in 2013. He said this is important to everyone and their intention is to create a community asset.
“I’m very sensitive to the neighborhood, but at the same time, if we don’t have an improved Greenville transit system for the entire community, it’s going to be everyone’s loss,” said Kirven.
Kirven said this area is the only option for Greenlink.
“There’s nothing racial about it, there was no intent to do that,” he said. “I think the transit folks, [Greenville Transit Authority], Greenlink, have done everything they possibly can, and continue to do, to work with the neighborhood.”
The neighborhood association has a list of demands, including an immediate stop to construction. They’d also like the county and the city to pay $5.7 million, each, in restitution.
They said they want the county to pay the New Washington Heights Neighborhood Association.
“For deliberately disengaging and dissolving the master plan created specifically for New Washington Heights,” said Paul Guy, Director for Justice Intervention Initiative.
They want city funds to go towards the residents.
“For recklessly creating a hostile environment,” said Guy.
They also want the director of the Greenville Transit Authority replaced. Until that happens, they plan to boycott.
“We shall institute an economic blockade of the Greenville city entertainment district,” said Guy.
The association is asking that no dollars from the African-American community be spent inside the district starting this Saturday.
As for legal matters, the association had filed an injunction in December, but during a hearing they said happened Tuesday, they were told they needed to file as individuals, not as an association.
Now, they’re refiling.

Upstate Beat: Drew Parker’s pure country sound is just right for Greenville’s Blind Horse Saloon
In an age where country music is often watered down by rock or pop influences, Georgia singer-songwriter Drew Parker is the real deal. He’s pure country. Just listen to the twangy guitars on his 2022 single “Little Miss Saturday Night,” or the weeping pedal-steel guitar on the heartbreaking ballad “While You’re Gone.” Parker might be making music in the era of “bro country,” but his songs would fit perfectly with the early-1990s classic country revival that made stars out of ar...
In an age where country music is often watered down by rock or pop influences, Georgia singer-songwriter Drew Parker is the real deal. He’s pure country. Just listen to the twangy guitars on his 2022 single “Little Miss Saturday Night,” or the weeping pedal-steel guitar on the heartbreaking ballad “While You’re Gone.” Parker might be making music in the era of “bro country,” but his songs would fit perfectly with the early-1990s classic country revival that made stars out of artists like Garth Brooks and Vince Gill.
And as it turns out, that’s exactly the way he wants it. Parker, who will perform at the Blind Horse Saloon in Greenville on Saturday, Jan. 21, is a country music fan to the bone.
“What I’ve always loved is more of a traditional-based country music,” Parker says. “That’s what I grew up on and that’s what I’ve always wanted to stick to. That’s what I always found the most passion in. To be honest, I would not enjoy being on the road playing music if it didn’t sound like that.”
So far, there are a lot of fans who agree with Parker. “While You’re Gone” picked up nearly 17 million streams on Spotify, and his 2022 singles “Raised Up Right” and “Little Miss Saturday Night” are in the millions as well.
Parker’s path to country success was an interesting one. He loved music as a child but also loved playing baseball and attended college planning to play. But an injury put an end to his sports career, and he found himself at a crossroads back in 2015.
“One morning I woke up and was like, ‘If I don’t pack my truck up and move to Nashville and really go to chase this thing, it’s not going to happen,’” he says. “’I have to make a move and really try this if I want to.’”
Coincidentally, Parker had just met another up-and-coming country singer named Luke Combs, who invited him to write songs together. Parker agreed, and for his first few years in Nashville spent more time as a writer than a performer, churning out platinum-selling songs for Combs, including “This One’s For You” and “1, 2 Many,” along with the chart-topping “Homemade” for artist Jake Owen.
Though he found success as a writer, Parker never gave up on his dream of being a performer.
“My whole reason for moving was to perform,” he says. “That’s what I wanted to do. But I think you get up here and you realize the best way to network is to write with people. And so that kind of just happened on its own. But the initial goal was always to be on the road playing, performing and singing.”
Now with his own batch of songs to pull from, Parker is ready to start his 2023 touring schedule and plans to release another EP soon. Parker says that as he’s worked his way up the country music ladder, he’s been able to get a sense of momentum, and he mentions his Greenville show as a measuring stick.
“It’s been awhile since the last time I played in Greenville, South Carolina,” he says. “And I’ve heard that we’ve already sold a bunch of tickets for the show. So to know that I’m going to come back there and there’s going to be probably three times or four times as many people as there was the last time I played there, that’s super encouraging for a guy like me. That just lets us know that we’ve made progress and done something that we set out to do.”
