Boutique-Style SEO Services

Clientside is a true boutique consulting firm. We work very closely with each client, and only take on a few clients at a time. Many of our clients already have an internal SEO team.

Since opening our doors in 2006, Clientside has consulted for a wide variety of leading U.S. companies, some of them household names:



Scott Smith, Clientside's co-founder and managing partner, has nearly 30 years of experience in business and marketing, including:

  • SEO
  • Web marketing
  • Web publishing
  • affiliate marketing
  • advertising & branding
  • business start-up
  • lead generation.

Unlike some SEO consultants who only consult, Scott also builds and manages Websites. As the CEO of a privately held Internet marketing company, Scott has developed, launched and optimized literally hundreds of Web properties. As a result, his experience spans everything from small niche sites to large e-Commerce networks from global companies.

Beyond his day-to-day activities, Scott is an Advisory Board member at HubPages, one of the largest sites on the Web. He is also a four-time contributor to Moz's biennial Search Engine Ranking Factors survey.

Prior to becoming involved with Internet marketing, Scott held senior management positions at several large ad agencies in New York, working on major global accounts including Coca-Cola, Citibank, Nabisco, Kraft and Gillette.
