Our company was founded in 1995 by Dave Ridel. Coming from a background in sales he had been helping friends create websites for their businesses. Quickly this side job began to grow as more people were asking for website help. In 1995 he finally took the leap to create Web-Max.
The mission statement for Web-Max was simple. Websites that not only look good but are also search engine friendly. Since then our mission has remained the same. Websites that look good and are Google friendly.
Our company started with creating sites local to Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. We were asked to help a wildlife control operator with optimization of his website. That was the beginning of a relationship that has lasted over 20 years.
Over 60% of our business is now helping clients in wildlife removal and pest control. One of the advantages of this specialization is that we know the industry. We know the animals and pests that our clients deal with on a daily basis. We know their both their keywords and the negative ones.
In addition to creating visually appealing websites, we offer search engine optimization, Google Ads management, Google My Business support, as well as optimization on other search platforms.
The way people access information on the internet has changed drastically. 90% of desktop searches use Google. The average search session lasts less than a minute. As of 2019 statistics show that 70% of the search traffic comes from mobile devices.
The goal for our clients is to help them create informative content that will hold attention and work well on all platforms, especially mobile.
