Boston SEO Services
TM Blast is a Boston SEO company dedicated to improving your web presence in Google and Bing through white-hat strategies. This operation is run by myself, Greg Kristan. I provide ethical and holistic search engine optimization consulting to businesses. Outside of Boston SEO consulting which is core to TM Blast, I offer four other types of services.

Transparency Separates Me from Others
SEO and PPC services have an air of mystery with them. It pains me when I speak with prospective clients, and they tell me that countless professionals have burned them in the past. To help reduce the anxiety of my clients, I share with them my documentation Google sheet. My client and their team can see every optimization that I’ve done, when I did it, my notes, and sometimes links to my OneNote that go into more detail on the optimization. Giving my clients access to this report tells them what I did each month and the results that came from that plan. Making SEO and PPC services transparent helps build trust and makes the monthly reports actionable and truthful for everyone.
What Makes my Strategy Unique?
What makes TM Blast’s strategy different from other companies offering SEO is that I focus on the “how” with my services. Many full-service agencies explain all the issues your site has and spend months invoicing you without you knowing or understand what is being done to grow your business. TM Blast is different because I’m an entrepreneur myself, so I only focus on results.
For example, I have a client who offers financial consulting in the Boston area. Instead of working on endless technical errors that look good in a monthly report, I work towards getting your service to page one of Google. Whether it’s through content marketing, a mix of pay per click ads with Google AdWords, fixing relevant technical issues, or more are all ways I’m working to drive more business to your website.
Finally, TM Blast is run exclusively by myself for SEO. I do all the reports, phone calls, strategies, implementations, and more. There is no breakdown in communication since I handle all parts of the contract. In addition to that, I don’t offer any confusing SEO packages to choose from. When you hire me, my SEO strategy is to grow your organic traffic to your critical pages to grow leads, sales, and revenue. Where other SEO firms and SEO agencies make choosing pricing plans difficult, I make the process easy.
Communication is Critical to Success
I make myself available through multiple channels of communication. Making sure to respond to all emails in less than 24 hours gives my clients the ease of mind that I will respond to their requests as soon as possible. I also have clients who have added me to their Slack channel, so that I can talk with small business owners, web design team, content marketing professionals, and more. Communication is critical, so I make sure to be available to you and your team if you ever need me for any search engine marketing question.
I understand that SEO may not be your strongest suit, so that is why I keep everything pointing towards the goal. Each month, you will see what I was working on, the results, and what that means for your business. Having clear and open communication makes my job as an SEO consultant easier and more efficient.
What Others Have to Say about my Marketing Services
Below are testimonials left from past and current clients for my services. The reviews are a mixture of Search Engine Optimization consulting and coaching programs. You can head over to the case study section to learn more in greater detail.
Do I only Work with Boston Area Clients?
I work with many clients outside greater Boston. I’ve built a strong niche for being an SEO company in Boston, but I work with clients outside Massachusetts often. The difference I make for clients in Boston is that I will meet with you face to face for one meeting, but otherwise, there is no difference in service.
TM Blast Strategy and Tools for Clients
When it comes to internet marketing, TM Blast uses the same SEO plan for all websites. It’s a 5 step process where everything repeats and improves upon the previous cycle. Many people might be confused if it’s a one size fits all approach, but my goal is to do whatever I need to to get your services or product to page one of Google. Improving your search rankings and online presence with SEO techniques can be visualized with this graphic below.
You will notice that the process repeats, which is key to a winning digital marketing strategy for the long term. Keyword research is a critical element to successful organic SEO services. You have to keep working on something to keep your success in search marketing. TM Blast has over eight years of experience using this strategy effectively as a top SEO company in the market. TM Blast does not have an SEO Team as all work is done by myself. Here is a breakdown of the SEO Services I typically handle for optimizing your website.
Example of My SEO Process
I record videos illustrating my SEO marketing process for my audience on YouTube often. In this video below, I follow up on a strategy for a niche website that I’m working on. The strategy and process is very similar to what I work on for clients, so clients can get a taste of my approach.
What a Monthly SEO Report Looks Like for Clients
Each month, I create a custom report for you and your team to review. In this report, I share what I worked on, the website traffic, and my next steps so everyone is on the same page. Below is a redacted report I made for one of my clients.
How Long Are Your Contracts?
TM Blast offers monthly SEO services where either party can cancel with a 30-days notice. Monthly SEO (no retainer or complicated monthly SEO packages) works best for both parties because it removes anxiety on the client’s side that they are stuck in a long-term contract, and it forces me to deliver high-quality results to you and your team. If you are looking for something different, I offer a few additional services that you can check out and see what works best for you.
Why is SEO Great for Your Business?
Did you know that organic listings result in 70% of Google clicks while paid ads get 15%? The free traffic your website receives from SEO will grow over time, but paid search marketing (PPC) requires you to spend to be seen. Using both strategies is good to drive volume and leads to your business, but organic listings can be the better solution in the long run. As a note, you will see that the percentage does not come out to 100% because some results don’t yield a click. An example of a Google search that won’t result in a click is someone searching for “what time is it” where an answer box will give you an answer.
The Tools I Use
TM Blast uses different tools to deliver 1st-page keyword results for your website. The mix of tools includes ways to track keyword rankings, review site health, see how Google and Bing view your site, and much more. As a note, I may have new tools in my arsenal at any time. Content creation and page optimization is something my tools assist with as well. I work with the content writers and developers for my clients to push optimizations on their behalf.
What are SEO Best Practices I use for Clients?
Ethical and white-hat SEO campaign practices is the goal of moving my clients to the first page in search engines. This optimization service does not participate in any shady link building, cloaking of content on the site, spamming forums, and so on. A strategic combination of technical SEO, on-page, off-page, competitor research, documentation, and tracking is how I operate. I do not have any secret sauce to improve your rankings. My main goal is to use one-page and technical optimizations to improve your site.
Google SEO expert best practices, in a nutshell, are about providing an excellent user experience while giving their bot the ability to understand your content. SEO practices for Google include optimizing page titles, meta tags, h1 tag, images, footers, keywords, content, search engine rankings, web page SEO, and so much more. Partnering with an organic SEO company can help deliver you top results. Start driving more free traffic from search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, and many more today to your website.
