Best SEO Agency in Chicago, IL

While Chicago may be a digital marketing Mecca with no shortage of world-class agencies, most choose to place their focus squarely on PPC or social media, offering only ancillary SEO services. This leaves few choices for midsized and enterprise businesses who want to invest in SEO-driven  organic demand generation, particularly when it comes to competitive industries or complex B2B products.

At First Page Sage, we’ve spend over 12 years studying Google’s algorithm and honing our SEO strategy, and have positioned multiple Chicago companies at the top of Google search results. We take a thought leadership approach to SEO to create long-term results that will generate ROI for years to come.

Thought Leadership Content

SEO requires content, and that content should position you as the leading company in your industry. Our expert writers will ensure that our content not only ranks, but shows visitors that your voice is worth listening to.


SEO may be our primary focus, but we understand that for your business it’s simply a means to an end. We measure our success first and foremost  by the actual ROI we generate for our clients.

Supporting Digital Marketing

SEO campaigns naturally create content that can be repurposed for email, social media, white papers, and webinars. We’ll identify and help you take advantage of these opportunities.

The Largest US SEO Firm

Our commitment to excellence has resulted in us becoming not only the largest SEO firm in Chicago, but the entire US. Our growth is a direct product of the results we’ve achieved for our clients.

Working with the Top Chicago SEO Agency

We begin our campaigns with a detailed onboarding process that allows us to custom-fit a strategy to your exact business needs. We begin by interviewing you and your team to identify your competitive advantages and who your most valuable audiences are, as well as how your website currently compares to those of your competitors. We’ll then take a deep dive into your site’s overall health, resolving any technical errors that may prevent you from ranking more highly while implementing marketing analytics systems so we can track our campaign’s progress.

While our web development team handles the back-end, our SEO strategists will create a 12-month SEO strategy that identifies the most valuable keywords actively being searched by your prospective customers. Our content team will then write an original piece of thought leadership content for each keyword, using search intent analysis to secure a top spot in Google’s search results. By publishing this content on your website twice each week, we secure Google’s News Website Bonus. By the end of a campaign, your website will be your company’s most valuable lead generation system.

We have clients throughout Chicago, including West Loop, Near Northside, and Highland Park. If you’re interested in learning more about our services, reach out and schedule a call. We’d love to learn more about your business over coffee at Intelligentsia.
