What Our Clients Say
“Kern Media has provided only positive results for Costa Rica Explorations & Escapes since beginning our working relationship in 2012. Dan Kern continues to exceed our expectations on a daily basis as he works tirelessly to keep up with industry trends and keep our site optimized. He always provide new ideas and creative solutions to keep our websites a step ahead of the competition.” John Rabenau (Founder, Costa Rica Escapes)
“We started small in the beginning with Dan teaching the online editors about keyword research and how powerful it could be. Dan worked with them for a number of months and what transpired was truly amazing. Normally, editors are very focused on their thoughts and the topics they want to write about. However, after learning and practicing SEO best practices, they not only started to optimize posts on topics already in the works but took it a step further and used keyword research to determine what topics they should be writing about in the first place! Traffic skyrocketed, increasing 7x over the course of six months.” Winter Thielen
“Dan uncovered several problem areas of our site, which were causing the site to be penalized by Google’s Panda algorithm and contributing to decreased organic search traffic. With his guidance, we were able to fix our SEO-related problems and have since seen tremendous growth in our organic traffic year over year! He transformed not only this business, but provided a proven model with best practices that we continue to employ today.” Amanda Ferm
“Dan understands online marketing, organic SEO and content marketing better than anybody else I know. He brings real-world experience to the table, citing facts and figures, instead of merely stating thoughts and opinions like other SEO consultants that I’ve interacted with before. During our projects together, Dan was consistently able to increase organic traffic, time-on-site, user engagement and conversion.” Corey Hartford
