Google Penalty Recovery Expert

Taylor Kurtz Google Boulder SEO

With years of SEO experience, Taylor prides himself on communicating openly with clients and make sure his clients not only get the results they want, but understand why they are getting those results. The reality is, Google Algorithm updates happen, and in some cases, whether it involves an algorithm update or not, a website may receive a Google penalty. A penalty from Google may result in you falling in the rankings or, in severe instances, dropping out of the search results entirely. Taylor Kurtz and Crush the Rankings have extensive experience assisting clients in recovering their rankings and, in many instances, achieving greater rankings and positioning within the search results than ever before. If you believe your website has been penalized by Google, contact an experienced Google Penalty Expert today!

Taylor received his MBA from Florida State University, while also appearing at conferences across the country to speak on SEO as a part of the Digital Summit Series.
