Client Testimonials

Yaniv Marcus, VP, Asia-Pacific & Investments, Leibish & Co.

"Thank you for all the help and support you have been giving Leibish & Co. We had given you a challenging mandate, which involved translation of an English commerce website into Mandarin, along with a mandate to increase our visibility in China via online marketing, as well as increase social media exposure and followers. You have done a fantastic job up to now, and I have no doubt that this will continue for the foreseeable future."

Sonia Saund, Project Coordinator, Fourth Dimension Inc.

"I must say that working with Chinese SEO Shifu was a great experience overall. Shifu made sure that every request I had was completed on time and within budget, and they provided status updates on the project as it went on. I was very impressed with the level of communication that SEO Shifu offered, especially since we were collaborating from opposite ends of the world. Ryan was very professional, understanding and diligent when it came to the work contracted. I would definitely recommend SEO Shifu to anyone looking for Search Engine Optimization and/or translation services."

Lewis Youngson, Managing Director, Visit Football

"Ryan and his team at SEO Shifu have been instrumental in helping my business grow in China. As a UK based travel company we have been able to communicate easily and quickly with Ryan, despite the time difference with China, regarding translation and SEO projects. Our business has been praised by many for its great translation and since starting our SEO 3 months ago we have risen to the top 3 in Baidu organic search terms. Ryan is someone I have complete faith and trust in and I can highly recommend him to any business big or small that wants to target China."

Phi Vo, Online Marketing Director at StudyMode, Inc.:

“We are an international company with many sites in different languages, and it was difficult to find anyone with as much expertise as Ryan. Specifically, we needed to grow Baidu traffic quickly. Ryan helped us to chart a short and long term strategy for SEO that would work well in the Chinese market, and thus far we have seen great results. I would definitely recommend his expertise for websites or businesses looking for someone on the ground who knows how SEO and great sites should work in China. We’ve seen a tremendous growth in traffic and look forward to a long-term relationship with this company.”

Helen Zhao, Director of Marketing, UL Prospector

They can be flexible on project terms if circumstances change. They are proactive in their communication and always looking to protect their clients' interest.
