The Alchemist Story

Founded in 2002 by internet marketing pro and The Art of SEO co-author Jessie Stricchiola, Alchemist was selected by BtoB Magazine (now AdAge) as one of the Top 100 Search Engine Marketing companies in the u.s. each year from 2003 to 2012.

Based in san francisco, we provide SEO consulting services for both small and large organizations, serving local and global markets. Our approach to organic search engine optimization emphasizes site architecture without compromising visual design, while simultaneously optimizing both for search and for the user. We work closely with our clients to create and maintain high performance web sites that maximize a business’s potential for exposure by leveraging core business and site content strengths.

Our team consists of a small group of web pros led by Jessie, offering site architecture and SEO design strategies, keyword and content development, analytics mining for site KPI analysis and SEO planning, and everything in between. Our efforts are supported by an external group of stellar support resources in the areas of development, web hosting, conversion optimization and related offerings. Many of our SEO clients retain their own development resources while we act as the liaison between marketing and IT, to support all areas of the search engine optimization process.

Our clients have included Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Looksmart, Fair Isaac Corporation,, Don Joy International, and others – and references are available on request. In addition to working with Alchemist’s commercial clients, founder Jessie Stricchiola has provided litigation support and SEO expert witness services to numerous parties involved in internet litigation matters.
