Who Are We?

PrairieWeb: Internet Marketing Since 1997

Our Experience

PrairieWeb BBB Certificate 2013

Founded in 1997, PrairieWeb became one of the first SEO companies and is one of the pioneers in the industry. With direct experience in marketing with original search engines like Alta Vista, Yahoo!, WebCrawler, AOL, MSN, and others, on to today’s global search engine giants Google and Bing, our knowledge base and wealth of expertise are without parallel. Because we have such fundamental familiarity with search engine “behavior,” we have the ability to understand and even anticipate search engine algorithm changes. Foundational understanding equates to a greater long-term effect. This is part of what differentiates us as internet marketers from our competitors.

A track record that spans the age of the Internet itself and the experience gained from it.

We bring together decades of search engine marketing and business experience to develop effective marketing strategies for diverse ecommerce and business-to-business (B2B) clients, consistently helping companies like yours dominate their markets.

Besides marketing for our clients, we have launched our own ecommerce companies and market them ourselves, so we know what works and what doesn’t work. We deal in practical, proven methods—not theoretical marketing.

Our office in Aurora, Illinois, makes us a central location for face-to-face meetings anywhere in Chicagoland. We always welcome visitors, phone calls, or email, so however you choose to do business with us, your experience will be a personal one.
