The SIA In A Nutshell
The SEO Intelligence Agency is an association comprised of a talented group of SEO Professionals lead by Clint Butler & Dori Friend and are dedicated to testing & reporting SEO metrics by creating single variable tests that allow them to identify ranking variables… and then do this…
When you join S.I.A. you get access to ALL of these tests/studies we’ve done in the past and then deliver new ones to you every month. All of the SIA courses including all historical dialogs, weekly chats, resource material and instructional material, (how we do it) along with an easy to use search function to drill down on whatever topic you are looking for, and an ongoing mastermind around it all.
The S.I.A also supports an active Community in Slack & Skype and sponsors a monthly Test Reveal webinar going over tests. Other community activities include going over tactics, answering questions and doing site reviews.
But there is so much more. Below is a chart to give you a brief view of some of the things the SIA offers. Below that, you will find a more detailed overview of each.

Nothing But Rave Reviews Since 2016
“Essential Resource” & “Treasure Trove!”
This is the go-to resource for streamlining SEO.
“Knowledge in The SIA is Mind Blowing” & “Pure Information of The Highest Quality!“
No adverts, no sales, just pure information of the highest quality.
“Priceless SEO Knowledge” & “Gives Me First-Hand Knowledge of The Algorithm and Debunks All the SEO Myths!”
I’m an enterprise SEO and do not have the time to test things by myself, and by joining SIA, I was able to stay on top of SEO ranking factors.
SEO tests run by some of the most intelligent people give me first-hand knowledge of the algorithm and debunks all the SEO myths.
If you’re a beginner or an enterprise SEO with 15+ years like me, the SIA will keep you up to date on what works and what does not work in the world of SEO.
“Only Regret is Not Finding The SIA Community Sooner!” & “The Knowledge And Experience of This Group is Incredible”
I’ve been ranking my own websites since 2010 but had found it difficult to rank in the new era of Google and all its updates.
With testing from SIA, Google updates are no longer a mystery. By following the best practices set out by the results of SEO tests, my sites are way less susceptible to algorithm changes.
My only regret is not finding the SIA community sooner.
“Was Literally Stunned at The Scale of the Information Available” & “Joining Becomes a No Brainer!”
If you pair this with the courses provided by Clint, alongside the Slack and Skype communities where you’ll get help on pretty much any question/problem you come up with, joining becomes a no brainer.
Personally I don’t use link building tools (yet) but add in those offered by the SIA and you’ll have pretty much a well-stocked armory for your SEO efforts, with only occasional needs to go elsewhere for supplemental info.
Recently (for reasons other than anything to do with the SIA community and team) my membership ended…and immediately I felt like I’d lost an arm. Was back in within a week!
“Easily Worth Much More Than What We’re Paying!” & “Almost Missed Out!”
Seeing the SIA’s video of proving wrong lots of ‘common knowledge’ in the SEO space had me interested, but honestly I didn’t want to pay what SIA was charging. I Googled for affiliate coupon codes and didn’t find any, so I left it alone and almost missed out.
Luckily, when I was doing my research I shared the video with a friend, who I didn’t realize instantly bought in. He ended up closing me by telling me it was completely worth the price. I took his word for it and joined too. The content and the community together is easily worth much more than what we’re paying.
If you’re thinking like me, wondering if it’s a good investment or not, it is. There really are two wins. I know to spend time on what works, and I’m not wasting time on the fake ‘best practices’ that the SIA proves have no bearing on rankings.
“It Was a Game Changer For Me” & “You’d be crazy not to join … it’s absolutely a secret weapon and one of the best things going in the world of SEO.”
When I first joined and had access to hundreds of amazing tests, I was just blown away. I couldn’t believe it. I had guessed for so long as to what worked and what didn’t. I’d hear one person say this and another guru said that. And a lot of times it was in direct conflict. To be able to see actually what worked and also what didn’t, was a game changer for me.
But it wasn’t even really just the tests that changed my life. It’s a community. There’s an amazing Slack and Skype group that all kinds of knowledge bombs are dropped in.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve had a really important question and just reached out to people in the group and got it answered in short order. The value in the SIA is just ridiculous.
I have four virtual assistants. And I have them taking courses in the group. Everything from Spintax to SEO courses and all kinds of amazing information, including Clint’s amazing schema course, which several of my team members have taken.
The volume is just astronomical. For me, if you’re a serious search engine optimization professional, whether you’re a one man show or you’ve got an agency, you’d be crazy not to join. I mean, it’s absolutely a secret weapon and one of the best things going in the world of search engine optimization.
Big thanks to Dori (she is amazing) and the SIA for changing my life.

You Will Have An All Access Pass To Our Member Area Full of Razor Blade SEO Intel
Inside Our Members Area
THE HOME SCREEN
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
Slide Through Images Below To See The Enormous Amount of Material Waiting For You
You Will Become A Part Of The Most Elite Data-Driven Community in The SEO Industry.
We Rely Heavily On What We Have Tested & So Will You.
You Will No Longer Need To Rely On Theory, What Others Argue About, or The Latest Trend Offered By Google or The Latest Guru’s.
We Have Found From Testing, That Anything That Hasn’t Been Tested, Most Often Misleads The Entire SEO Industry.
Most importantly, “we” will not mislead you with guesses or theory. If you ask a question, we will answer it by always explaining where our point-of-view on it comes from, be that it has been tested, is our experience, or if it is just theory, (ours or otherwise,) so you always know how to view, hold and invest in it. Or not.
Now For The Tests!
All of the below Single Variable Tests comes with a full analysis on how the test was performed, it’s implications and any further discussion involving the test.
Most tests have been ran multiple times (thus, it becomes more like a study or an individual variable), and in the reverse to get the clearest picture we can of the tests validity and what it represents to us, as SEOs in our relationship to Google’s SERPS.
You will also receive an easy to read summary of each test with an easy, Yes or No answer so the data isn’t as overwhelming as it could be if studying it for the first time.
There will be tests that draw you in and peak your interest more than others. This is natural, and all of our favorites, or our MUST READS first, for instance, are different for each of us.
You will also receive a list of the “positive ranking factors“ we have found in a compacted guide to help you get started ranking fast.
You may also see multiple versions of the same test done in different years. We believe it is important to retest (especially the positive ranking factors and other important information we have discovered) to conclude the same validity as when they were first done, thus keeping ourselves and community up to date.
We began in March of 2016, and haven’t stopped.
No Matter Your SEO Skill Level, The SIA Will Make It Better (I promise.) This is How…
You Will Get The Following…
Our Complete 600+ Test Library
We have tested over 600+ Ranking Variables And You Will Soon Discover What We’ve Found!
Testing is really the only way to tell what is working and what isn’t. You get ALL of our 600+ tests/studies that we’ve completed to date, telling you what we have found and how to apply it to YOUR SEO.
We know which variables HELP RANK and which HURT RANKINGS. We are often surprised by the outcome of our tests! That is why we don’t believe ANY SEO theories until we test it!
The Tests are delivered in various ways to help us organize and deliver them into different rank groupings and in different formats for easy digestion.
And YOU Get Access to All of it.
- The Dossier: This is the original way we delivered the test results. It is a downloadable PDF containing each months results.We have the written analysis starting with the hypothesis, the background and how the test was done, the results and what we got out of the test and how to apply it. Click Here for A Sample.
- The Single Tests: In our members area each test is broken down into an individual document so you can search and review any of our tests without having to download the entire above Dossier.
- The Webinars: You get the recordings in video, audio and transcripts where we go over the test and explain it in further detail, talk more about how you can apply it in your every day SEO.
- The Summaries: We also call this the One-Liners. All the tests have been boiled down to the one liner hypothesis and then we give you the Yes or No answer to the test. This makes a great overview.
- The Info-Graphics: We have taken some of this material and created easy to understand info-graphics out of the information we have gained in certain topics.
New Tests & Studies Delivered Monthly
Each Test is Then Put Into Formats & Cataloged in The Ways Listed in Section #1
You will continue to be on the cutting edge of SEO as we continue to deliver test results to you every month. Testing SEO strategies and tactics is the cornerstone of the SIA and is what makes us and you a better SEO.
We continue testing because that is the only way to stay ahead of the game. Google never sleeps and in a way, neither do our tests. Some we keep going, some we re-run, and then there is always the new theory that pops up that we need to test to see if it actually works or not.
We do average around 10 tests a month. Each test is done a couple times (which makes it more like a study) before we announce the results and some of these are more complicated than others, so some months we have more than other months, but each one increases SEO knowledge and how better to rank.
Once you become a member, you can also choose to become a tester and receive a free membership in addition to being paid $100 per test/study.
Or you can suggest tests for us to run. Have you heard of something that you aren’t sure really works.? This is the place to find out.
The SIA Community
Thriving & Incredible – The Level of Experience of Our Members is Profound
Most members are SEO Professionals, but that doesn’t mean YOU have to be, that just means there are a lot of people inside the group that are ligament guru’s themselves! I have ALWAYS said there is no one person that knows everything about SEO (although Clint comes close lol) but together… we are unstoppable.
All questions get answered. If one of your sites is stuck, people will go look at it and give you feedback on what to do or you can request an official Site Review!
We talk about tools, resources, SEO News and Google Updates. We learn from each other as much as we learn from the tests. It is the perfect combination.
You have the option of being involved in one or both community platforms depending on how you like to communicate.
The platforms we offer are:
- A Slack Group with channels and threaded discussions, and…
- A Skype Group with a running chat
The SIA Education Center
No Matter What Level SEO You Are, You Will Find Step-By-Steps Perfect For You
We are proud to offer an wide range of full blown courses to smaller “how to” trainings from basic on-page to advanced schema and even black hat tactics. =:0
The SIA continuously creates and adds SEO courses to our education arsenal, and we also draw on the expertise of others to expand the depth of our learning material.
There is something for everyone no matter your level or experience.
And even though we do sell some of our course material as individual products, but most remain behind the membership wall and you have access to all of it.
We listed the “main courses” in the first section of this page. Click here to review. The smaller trainings are to vast to list.
Smaller Mastermind Groups
You Are Put Into A 5-6 Person Mastermind Group
As well as our large community works together and helps each other out, we know sometimes you don’t want to talk about your site in a large group. We found the smaller Mastermind groups solves that.
The smaller group also help with accountability if you need that. Most do. 😉
People inside these groups will often become your best friends and your GO TO for insight and strategies not shared with the group at large.
These Masterminds are not mandatory, but highly recommended. If you are put into one with people you don’t “connect” with or aren’t meeting as regularly as you would like, you can request to be reassigned.
There are two events in the year that we recommend you attend. SEORockstars in the fall and SEO Spring Training in the Spring.
In the future, we are planning to create an SIA day either before or after SEORockstars. *Note – SEORockstars admission is not included in your S.I.A. Membership. Dates are TBD.
These types of meet-ups not only puts a face to a person, they very often lead to great friendships, joint-ventures, partnerships on products and businesses.
I have met almost ALL of my business partners at live events, at the bar. lol
When we schedule the next one, please make your best effort to attend as it could very well be the one thing that changes your business. There are things that are shared “person-to-person” that are just not shared online.
Things that are shared in a small group over dinner, or even whispered into your ear (as you swear to secrecy) are not to be missed.
It is this type of intimacy that has made my SEORockstars a must attend event for those that have been before and why it has gone on for 10 years!
COVID Update: We will not be holding SIA events in the foreseeable future due to COVID. As an SIA member, when we begin to offer these events in the future, you will receive an email.
