Search Engine Optimization

Wondering why your business isn't popping up on Google's radar? At Scholar House Media, we've got the answers you're looking for. From uncovering what your website is currently ranking for to identifying what it should be ranking for and why it’s not, our tailored SEO services are easy to understand and tailored toward new customer acquisition. We’ve met with a lot of business owners who have had bad experiences with previous agencies and are thus convinced SEO is akin to snake-oil peddling. We’ve changed a lot of minds and are confident that if you’ve been burned in the past and are justifiably skeptical, we can earn your trust before earning your money.

What is SEO?

SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is a major piece of your business's roadmap to success in the digital world. It's the strategic approach that helps your website stand out amidst the internet noise, making it easier for potential customers to discover you online. In short, it’s providing content and a User Experience (UX) that are aligned to your customers needs in a way that Google can easily understand as they crawl, index and rank your website. SEO isn't just about attracting your loyal customers who already know your brand; it's about connecting with new, potential customers who are actively searching for what you offer but may not have heard of you... yet. In our first meeting, we’ll explain how that is done and what’s required to get there.

Go from Invisible to Unmissable: Why SEO Matters

The vast majority of consumers turn to Google when they're looking for products or services. But here's the catch – they usually don't scroll past the first page of search results. If your business isn't showing up there, you're missing out on a huge opportunity to connect with potential customers. SEO isn't just about getting more traffic to your website; it's about getting the right kind of traffic. By optimizing your site for relevant keywords and providing valuable content, you can attract people who are actively searching for what you offer. And because they're already interested in what you have to say, they're more likely to become paying customers.

SEO matters because it helps you get found online, attract more customers, and grow your business. It's not just a nice-to-have – it's essential for staying competitive in today's digital marketplace.

SEO Case Studies In Action

Douglas J Aveda Institutes and Salons


Douglas J Aveda Institutes and Salons aimed to improve local visibility within their Michigan, Chicago and Knoxville markets, in order to attract more new students and salon clients. Their school website also suffered from a bloated navigation menu and repetitive content that required consolidation, user simplification, and SEO loss mitigation.

Our Solution

Leveraging local SEO strategies, we optimized their Google My Business profiles, implemented location-specific and student-focused content, improved mobile optimization and interlinking, and focused on Google EAT best practices throughout.

Scholar House and Douglas J Aveda recently reached their two year anniversary of working together. Highlights include setting new monthly records for site traffic on three separate occasions, and achieving Page-One-of-Google rankings for several non-brand keywords that contain their target services (Cosmetology School & Esthiology School), and combining Organic search data with Paid ad placements to better inform ad spend, bringing down overall cost.

Cyanna Education Services


Cyanna Education Services was looking to expand their educational consulting and curriculum services, while also funneling users to one of their products - an EdTech platform living on a separate website. Our initial SEO audit revealed a steady stream of organic traffic, but it was all driven by Cyanna’s brand name. With no non-brand rankings to speak of, Cyanna’s web traffic came only from customers and potential customers who already knew they existed.

Our Solution

Step one was convincing Cyanna’s decision makers that consolidating their EdTech platform website with their corporate site would leverage the authority of both sites, making it easier for Google to make the connection and assign ranking value to Cyanna’s service and product offerings. Once the two websites were carefully and strategically combined into one, Scholar House and Cyanna teamed up on an on-going content creation project in the form of explainer videos, written articles, webinars, and content expansion. That content calendar is now over 3 years old and still going.

Giving site visitors content that answers their questions within an easy to use website, while also making the site easier for Google to crawl, index, and rank individual pages has led to an explosion of non-brand Google rankings. Cyanna now enjoys page 1 visibility for keyword phrases related to Starting a School, Curriculum Development, and their EdTech platform. Oh, and Organic traffic increased by 68% in year one, and an additional 15% in year two.
