Local Search Analyst & Account Manager
Justin has been an internet marketer since 2010 and a local SEO since 2012. He caught the internet marketing bug in middle school during a website building camp. Having worked at two digital marketing agencies as both an SEO and account manager, he gained experience with all aspects of SEO (on-page, technical, off-site) across various industries, especially in local SEO.
From SEO content strategy to making sure website launches don’t tank a client’s rankings and ongoing technical SEO maintenance, he’s always looking for ways to help businesses get more qualified leads from a highly-ranking website.
Justin is a husband and has one boy, whom he calls his “favorite son”. A Christian, Justin enjoys spending time with his family, volunteering at church, watching sports (especially Penn State football), and garnering eye-rolls from his puns (apologies in advance). When asked what Justin does, his mother-in-law tells people that he sells the internet. He will cry if Google Search Console ever goes away.

Read about the experiences our clients have had with Sterling Sky.
I was referred to Sterling Sky by Marie Haynes and I have had fantastic experience! They have helped me with my Local SEO, my technical SEO, Content Strategy, and Earned Media. We have seen a huge increase in organic traffic and leads since we started working with Sterling Sky. Thanks again guys!https://www.mikestewart.ca/
In the past 10 years we've worked with many SEO companies to improve our web presence, organic positioning, and lead generation. Absolutely none of those companies were able to make an impact on our business like Sterling Sky has.
Sterling Sky specializes in value-driven SEO, which to a small business like ours means smart, strategic, long term, value-aligned SEO, and not gaming the latest twists for ephemeral gains.
Sterling Sky constantly strives to create a detailed understanding of our business industry in general and our particular space specifically - then combines that knowledge with our SOAP analysis and desired market positioning. The Sterling Sky team utilizes a wide range of strategies from internal brainstorming, website improvement, link building, earned media, and advertising. I experience this congruence personally because I have a monthly meeting to go over exactly this analysis on each of our verticals. Essentially, Sterling Sky is a detailed oriented, custom-built, local SEO company that is interested in understanding its clients' business in order to deliver long term value and relationship.
Over the past years, our business has grown constantly, culminating in more than 50% growth in 2019 alone. I attribute a significant chunk of that growth to our relationship with Sterling Sky maturing after years of carefully building blocks of success with our partnership. After being burned several times with generic, copy-paste one size fit-all SEO companies, I can confidently and very happily say that we found a home SEO company with whom we intend to have a very long partnership.
