Our tactics are highly sustainable.
We function like part of your team.
We started Fortress to be the go-to SEO agency for businesses looking to scale and level up their online presence.
Back in 2018, Fortress founder Gerrid Smith was looking for an agency to outsource link building and other SEO tasks for a CBD eCommerce company he launched. None delivered.
Deciding to take matters into his own hands, he knew it was going to be an uphill battle to promote a cannabis product. Using a combination of advanced SEO tactics and outside-the-box strategies, they hit 8 figures in revenue in the first year of business.
We know first-hand how frustrating it is to work with an agency that either doesn’t care enough or lacks the expertise to get results. Fortress is on a mission to help companies get the recognition they deserve online.
Meet the Founder
Hey there, I’m Gerrid.
I’ve been optimizing websites since I was 19 – launching my first dedicated SEO agency back in 2008.
Having been on both sides of SEO, I’ve structured Fortress to be an agency that understands the challenges of running a business on the ground level, with everything you need to grow your presence online.
I don’t want to just get you a #1 ranking. I want to help you dominate your niche.

as well as the top 2-3 search results.
