The Atlantic Monthly Magazine
I supervised Dr. Nikolayev when he served as a teaching fellow at Harvard University, where he taught history, literature, and writing. He is a very gifted teacher and writer. He was always extraordinarily well prepared for class, had a clear and direct presentation style, and got along well with the students (they loved him, in fact). I should note that Dr. Nikolayev won several teaching awards while at Harvard. I would work again with Dr. Nikolayev without reservation or hesitation. He receives my highest recommendation.

Boston Airport Express
Here in Boston things are really competitive for limo services, it’s a five star city. Our ads were wasting our money. Then someone said we should hire Search Benefit. We talked to them and they said: your site is no good! Your message is no good! They changed everything on our site. They removed what we thought what was cool. They made it real simple and clear. And they changed our message, they made it about the client and not us. So, the same month a lot of orders started coming in. People calling, people booking online. The Search Benefit guys definitely know how to make it work! We are not computer people, we are limo drivers, but we are happy now that we hired them and it’s worth everything they charge!
Director of Marketing and Business Development,
Geotechnical Services Inc.
As Geotechnical recently restructured to take on a new vendor for our best-performing product type, we needed to add significant visibility and innovative marketing strategies to our repertoire. Search Benefit became our primary advisor for all digital marketing and SEO/SEM initiatives. Working in the analytical instrumentation industry, where there is heavy online competition for top positions on search engines and a flood of internet ads that all look very much alike, we were not sure we could perform well considering our limited resources in terms of time and budget, and believing our website to be optimized in large part already. Search Benefit provided Geotechnical with excellent results that surpassed our expectations, landing us in the top three results for many of the most targeted and high-volume keywords for our industry. Search Benefit’s approach to SEO was truly innovative, providing us with an extremely thorough understanding of the search behavior of our target audience. The extensive web of industry keywords mined for us by Search Benefit has been extremely helpful in designing our search engine optimization and marketing campaigns. Search Benefit has empowered us to be able to understand and maintain our results by teaching us the concepts and skills necessary to be able to execute our own search engine optimization and providing us with the tools we need to keep our rankings high for years to come. Most importantly, we have seen an exponential increase in web leads. They’re pouring in!"
Search Benefit has helped us tremendously by building our keyword strategy and SEO. They have propelled our search engine rankings to a much higher level, and we are very pleased with the resulting increase in ROI!

Senior Software Architect,
I worked with Philip at Kanda Software, a software consulting company and knew him as a brilliant colleague. He has a knack for quickly getting to the gist of the most unfamiliar and difficult topics. He is both technical and literary. At the time we worked together his primary responsibility was producing and reviewing majority of the company’s customer-bound communication materials. He brilliantly wrote numerous documents, from in-depth marketing white-papers to technical specs to new product proposals. His style was fluent and persuasive, with a sharp quality seldom found in the dry world of business papers. The company got several significant contracts on the strength of proposals that Philip authored. His talent for language and brilliant analysis that he brings to the team would make him an invaluable resource for any employer or business partner.
Philip has a deep knowledge of SEO that he shares freely with all learners in the SEOChat Forum. He regularly creates sticky posts that many of the forum’s members refer to again and again, and fosters wonderfully educational discussions. I’ve learned a lot from him, and so have most of our members.
