Our Team

Seth Dardis


Seth New Profile 2.1Seth graduated from the University of San Francisco where he studied Marketing and Economics. He has always wanted to be involved with advertising, and had no idea he would be helping dozens of businesses with Internet marketing to this extent. Seth has been involved in Search since 1995 when he worked for a legal publisher selling CD-Rom and Internet subscriptions. Here, he taught attorneys how to do online legal research, as well as search for cases, codes, treatises, and forms. Prior to that he worked for a barter company, helping small businesses promote their goods and services to each other, and attract new customers. Seth specializes in Website Optimization and Local Listings, where he dials in the business listings on Google Places, Yahoo Local, and Bing Local. Seth started Search Owls in 2010 after leaving a larger SEO firm who failed to produce results up to his expectations. Since starting Search Owls, he has helped dozens of business owners achieve online marketing results beyond their expectations. He works closely with business owners to identify the top keywords in their industry, and target the areas that they want to be found. He also manages the Pay Per Click campaigns to help clients target additional keywords and areas to do business. When Seth isn’t working in the Owls Nest, he can be found making site visits and learning how to better market his clients online.
