Getting Real Results with Measurable SEO

If you’re reading this blog, then it’s likely that you already have a fundamental understanding of why you would want to rank your website for certain target keywords or keyword phrases. The struggle, of course, is figuring out how to get your site onto that much valued first page of Google search results.

To this end, we’ll be taking a look at Measurable SEO for today’s review. As you can probably imagine, Measurable SEO offers a range of search engine optimization-related services that are designed to “deliver measurable results and positive ROI.”

A Range of SEO Based Services

Measurable SEO was founded by Chuck Price, a man who started his Internet marketing career nearly 10 years ago. He has been involved with ProWebPromotion and We Build Pages. From there, he decided to branch out on his own and Measurable SEO was born.

There are a range of SEO services offered by this company and they are all based on the Six Sigma approach that Chuck learned from his manufacturing experience. In short, it is a structured process that demanded continual improvement, which is exactly what you need for effective SEO.

The core services, of course, are the SEO services. These include optimizing the site, building links, and utilizing social media marketing. Other services include content analysis, online reputation repair, widget development, and local search marketing.

Getting Started with a Free Report

One of the great things about Measurable SEO is the amount of useful information and tools that they are willing to provide free of charge. For instance, you can get a free SEO analysis report without having to provide an e-mail address or any other information. This can be accessed from their main page.

I generated a SEO report for to see what it had to offer. The report includes data on visitors (like Alexa), content (like popular pages), in-site SEO (like meta descriptions), website compliance, number of backlinks, and directory listings. It won’t fix your problems, but it could point out some areas that need improvement.

The DIY Method with Free SEO Tools

Even though Measurable SEO would much prefer if you pay for their services, you’ll also find a huge collection of free SEO tools on the site as well.

Yes, you may have been able to find these or variations on these elsewhere, but it’s really helpful having them all accessible and categorized onto a single page. The SEO tools are quite numerous and varied. You can use a link analyzer, a nofollow finder, a keyword rank checker, an authority link checker, a PageHeat checker, an HTTP header extractor, a CSS validator, a webpage size checker and a Digg links checker, among many others.

They say that information is power and these tools will provide you with a lot of useful SEO information about your websites. Armed with this data, you can then work to improve certain things, but it is really through the services of Measurable SEO that you’ll get to see some serious results.

Set Fees or Pay for Performance

Measurable SEO effectively offers you two main options for paying for their SEO services. The regular way is to invest in their monthly SEO packages. These are on a subscription basis and start at $500.

The packages ramp up to $2000 a month for the enterprise plan, which includes 20 keywords, 35 pages with on-page optimization, 4 unique human written articles, 350 directory submissions, 50 social bookmarks, and 3 press releases. That’s a lot of work, so it’s really up to you to see what kind of value you can extract from that work.

The alternative is to sign up for the Pay for Performance (P4P) SEO services. After paying the $500 setup fee, you only pay when you see results. These prices will range based on a number of factors, but when I put in my example for, it came up to $250 per ranking if I get into the top 5 slots in Google.

No one said that proper search engine optimization was going to be cheap, but it does look like Chuck and his team know what they’re doing.

  1. I would like to check the free report first and thanks for the review looks like it’s worth checking out

    1. PPC Ian says:

      Agree the free report seems cool. Definitely worth getting it, it’s free after all!

      1. Erwin Miradi says:

        I have seen some free SEO report tools before, but this one looks cool and very detailed in information. I’ll check this out.

    2. I just check free report.. it’s really cool dude..

  2. This offer is interesting. While other SEO companies are starting a new pricing model, where you only have to pay if results come together, Measurable SEO seems to charge just for their service, good results not guaranteed at all. Or did I miss anything?

    1. PPC Ian says:

      I agree that it is best to pay for performance versus a flat fee. That said, in the world of SEO it’s difficult to guarantee anything.

      1. That is correct, it is tough to get guarantees out of SEO as it is not tangible. SEO’s should though be able to show you some good testimonials.

      2. Erwin Miradi says:

        Yeah I agree with Ian. I don’t think there’s anyone can guarantee a thing when it comes to SEO, unless it’s Google.

    2. Chuck Price says:

      We offer two options – a traditional pay for service approach AND a pay for performance model. Whichever best suits your needs.

  3. Lucy says:

    Pay for results in SEO, that’s unique! I think the apprehention is usually with the upfront money though… I’d like to see a base amount (200ish) and then Pay as you go.

    1. Chuck Price says:

      Hi Lucy – deal. We are going to waive our setup fee for the next 30 days for anyone who mentions they learned about us from John Chow. Just drop john’s name in the contact form or phone call and the expense is ALL ours till we deliver results:)

      Chuck Price

      1. Erwin Miradi says:

        Wow. That’s a nice deal indeed.

        1. panax says:

          Please exaggeration:)

  4. Rakesh says:

    They seems useful, Let me confess first i have taken such service earlier in my blogging carrier, but it was not my expectation. So i discontinued them.

  5. thx john , but ithink this very hard and hard i try to learn countinously ….but th xjoh for your info:)

    1. Erwin Miradi says:

      Umm.. What is it you try to learn?

  6. for an extra nudge in this industry and a search for positive ROI,this could definitely be something to look into.Thanks for the review John.Much appreciated

  7. I will check that service out. I use seoMOZ now (like it a lot) but am always looking at other “additional” information and SEO service sources. Thanks!

  8. Dealbulous says:

    Hi John, you sure they charge the $500 for trial only if we see results? But my requirement is to see rather heavy improvement e.g. from rank 10 to rank 3-4 on page 1 because if the improvement is very sight, $500 will be too much to spend.

    1. Dealbulous says:

      sorry, wrong spelling. “slight” not “sight”. type too fast.

    2. They help you in correcting the errors that you have on your website. You can do yourself in most cases.

    3. Chuck Price says:

      Hi Dealbulous – I’m going to extend an offer to you as well as all other readers of John’s blog. Just mention on the contact form or in a phone call that you heard about on the john chow blog and we’ll WAIVE the $500 setup fee. That’s right – we pick up ALL of the risk. You ONLY pay if we get results:) This special offer will end in ~ 30 days – on October 28th 2011.

      1. Larry Brown says:

        That shows a lot of confidence that what is being offered really does work. I will look into this for some of my older websites. What kind of results exactly?

      2. Erwin Miradi says:

        Wow that’s a really nice deal. I think I’ll try that one out since you seems to be so confident with the result.

  9. looks like a good offering but a bit too pricy for me

  10. Games Dunia says:

    Well i think it is a very good seo service provider indeed.

    1. Erwin Miradi says:

      I think so. It has free SEO report tools too.

      1. I love free things.. so, i am with free SEO report..

        1. Erwin Miradi says:

          LOL. Yeah me too. Especially because I’m a lot more confident if I handle the SEO by myself.

  11. PPC Ian says:

    Seems like a great SEO service, although the prices are not cheap. Probably the best fit for a corporation looking for help on their SEO versus an individual entrepreneur.

    1. Chuck Price says:

      Hi PPC Ian – we have clients ranging from Mom & Pops to corporate accounts. In terms of cost, I believe that we deliver a good value and our mission is to deliver a positive ROI for every marketing dollar spent with us. We created a SERP calculator which you’ll find at: to show you just what a Google rank 1-10 is worth. I would encourage you to check it out. Thanks for being an active participant in this thread.

  12. SportsNub says:

  13. kavya Hari says:

    In fact, SEO is one of the amount of useful information and tools that are willing to provide free of charge on here 🙂 Thanks a lot for sharing your post on here 🙂

    1. Chuck Price says:

      Hi Kavya – while most SEO companies are taking their tools private & charging $100 / month or more, we are happy to supply a great arsenal of FREE tool to the Do-it-yourself SEOs out there.

  14. There did I get a slap in the face; I found 15-16 different things I need to fix on my website.

    1. That the way it usyally is. When you’re done fixing and improving those 15 things, you’ll find 15 new ones 🙂

      1. Yes, but now that I’ve worked through the list, did I find that the errors or less as their program has put on me is not true …. (- You are not in, – I am?), Etc. the program is not 100%.

        1. Chuck Price says:

          Hi Property Marbella – we have a bug report form at the end of the report. We encourage people to report any errors there so we can fix them. I’ll ask our programmer to check out the DMOZ issue.

  15. Desks says:

    Seems like you are doing some serious SEO work but imo it is little expensive. As someone mentioned above, it is ideal for corporates and individuals with good income source.

    1. It does not have to expensive(can do it without cost), but it is very time consuming at first.

      1. Erwin Miradi says:

        Well, it’s just like you’re exchanging your time with money. If you think your time worth the price, then go ahead.

  16. fas says:

    Everybody is behind SEO services nowadays.

  17. Connor Keating says:

    I’m not sure how others think but when it comes to SEO the most important part of it to me is reputation management. Of course having a well ranked page is important but what happens when the page that ranks most is a negative page? You turn your attention to reputation management and fix it.

  18. SEO is rapidly increasing industry, the outcome is very good however this offer doesn’t need to be that expensive.

    1. Erwin Miradi says:

      For people who know SEO, yes it doesn’t have to be that expensive. But there are also some people who have no idea about how to do SEO and trying to expand their business in internet and they will find it kinda cheap comparing with the result they’d get.

  19. Erwin Miradi says:

    Nice service. But when it comes to SEO I’d like to do it myself. After all the service is not cheap. But this one is good for big companies to promote their products or services in internet.

  20. I think they are handy, i’ll try for my self.

  21. Ed says:

    I’m definitely going to check out the free tools they have. They could come in handy.

  22. It’s looks interesting. But, prices are too high..

    1. Erwin Miradi says:

      It’s always been like that in SEO service. I think it’s dedicated to huge companies who have lotsa budget to start with.

  23. says:

    NIce info about SEO. it is pricey, nut if it gets results, it’s worth it

    1. panax says:

      Is the money I do not understand this ?

  24. in my opinion, instead of going for such a costly SEO, one should start building link them self. If website becomes large enough and can’t be handled without profession SEO expert, then such packages should be in option.

  25. Nice tips about seo which will help for the webmasters a lot

    1. panax says:

      as you said, giving a nice tips on SEO

  26. panax says:
