Products & Services

SEO Services

Page One of Google. For most businesses, it’s the promised land. Why are your competitors getting all the leads that come with being on page one of Google, and you aren’t? What are they doing that you aren’t? You might think it’s black magic, but it’s really not. Before we recommend a plan of action for moving your business up the search rankings, we start with a SEO audit of your site, your competition, and tell you what you need to do to beat them at SEO.


Wordpress Web Design & Development

Your website is your most effective marketing tool. We build on top of WordPress, because we believe it’s the best platform for SEO. Need custom WordPress development? Or a one-of-a-kind WordPress theme? You’re in luck. We specialize in mobile-friendly WordPress sites that are the polar opposite of “off the shelf”.


Website Maintenance

Websites are ongoing projects, and need regular maintenance, like your car needs regular tune-ups. We offer ongoing maintenance packages, so your website stays up to date with the latest necessary software. This helps your site stay performing well, secure, and bug-free. You can also buy as much or as little time as you need for ongoing WordPress development and design tasks. We also do one-time security software set-ups for WordPress sites.

I was referred to Lockedown by a colleague as I needed help with my local search presence as well as my online citations. John was thorough, professional and sent me a very detailed audit with the steps needed to improve my local search results. John also assisted me in creating a plan to fix my online citations as I recently changed my business name as well as my address. I highly recommend Lockedown Design & SEO and plan to work with John in the future on additional projects.

Customer Testimonials

Just an enquiry to Lockedown Design & SEO has given us an insight on how to improve our business without signing on or paying a fee. It is a really nice approach as when we are able, we now know who to go to for official help. Thank you John, we look forward to becoming another happy customer.


John has been terrific; He hits all the deadlines, responds to issues quickly, and worked overtime to address my (many:) needs. Highly recommended.


After working with John, my website business has done much better then anticipated, due to bugs being fixed and aesthetic of the site being changed, improving user experience and increasing sales.


We so appreciate working with John. He's got great customer service, fabulous response time and he always solves our issue. It's such a relief to know we can call him when things go awry!


Well, I hate to do this because I'm selfish, but John deserves the credit...he is Awesome!!...but I'm hoping to keep 'most of him' to ourselves at Bud Bar Displays.
We have had several webmasters and a developer that have turned my hair gray.
We have an E-Commerce site and it goes with the territory that we come across technical issues from time to time that can be very nerve racking as a business owner, after I've explained the problems or goals, John starts talking a foreign language and then goes about accomplishing the task quickly and successfully.
Where his professionalism really shines is that he will 'babysit' the changes to make sure everything came out as planned. If any final tweaks are necessary he's on immediately.
His communication during changes and returning of calls is also 5 Star.
I've said too much already...Thanks John you're Awesome!


I have been looking for a high level consultant to help me with backend aspects of Wordpress that are beyond my comfort zone and someone to help me with best practices and optimization. I was referred to John and I sent an inquiry to him via his website. I received an immediate response and he was extremely gracious and generous with his assessments and suggestions. I think I've found that high-level consultant person I was looking for!


John has done a wonderful job on our company website. He has provided the things we needed as a Chamber, and when there was something he wasn't sure about, he checked with his contacts and was able to provide what we needed. He went the second mile and made training videos so I could learn how to do things. He's always available when we need something and resolves issues in a timely manner. I would recommend Lockedown Design if you are in the market to improve your website.


I hired John to work on my SEO rankings and my internet presence has gone through the roof. I can't thank Lockedown Designs enough for the increased sales that have resulted from their work!


I would highly recommend John at Lockedown SEO as a knowledgeable, white hat SEO consultant. It's so important to be careful when choosing a partner for search engine optimization, and I can tell you John is the real deal. He has helped me on several occasions and is always creative, thorough, and very helpful. Do not hesitate to hire Lockedown if you are looking for an SEO company.


John Locke provides excellent service. When I have a question about my companies SEO I come to John. He is responsive and knowledgeable. I am consistently impressed with his work and pragmatism. He never tries to act like things are "industry secrets" and is open to share information to help me grow my business and reach my target audience. Thank you, John Locke!

From Our Website

Our primary focus is understanding your business, and what areas of your business you're trying to improve. We use this information to design a new, updated version of your website. After the website launches, we measure the data, so we can make adjustments, and help you grow even larger. We believe in tracking leads generated, conversions, and goals on your website, so your business can continue to evolve and grow. We get to know you and your business, and who your customers are. We look at what sites in your space are successful, and take notes, so your new website can also drive revenue.


Rick is the President of an industrial supply company in Sacramento. When we started working together, his website had yet to rank in the top 10 pages in Google or generate any leads. Today, they rank competitively for 95% of their target search terms, and get multiple qualified leads every single day from organic Google search. After the work in Step One and Two is complete, we measure your progress using Google Analytics, and other keyword tracking software. By analyzing the results, we can determine if any additional fine-tuning is necessary.


We do our best work with manufacturers, helping them drive more targeted traffic to their websites. We offer a variety of search engine optimization services for industrial companies: keyword research, content planning, link building. In short, all the vital work it takes to rank higher in Google, so you get more RFQs, and you sell more B2B machinery.
