I've worked with the web in various industries and various capacities for over 10 years. My web related roles have included: customer services, product development, design, client-side programming, 'back end' (ASP, ASP.Net, PHP & SQL) programming, project management and team management. In this time, I've amassed a considerable amount of knowledge about the many aspects of SEO and internet marketing.
I recognise that the landscape has changed considerably in the relatively short space of time that the web has existed and as technology has progressed, search engine optimisation has moved from being about keywords and link exchanges to providing users with useful content, so that search engines will recognise the usefulness. Social media has become an important factor in the equation, acting as a means of spreading the word about websites and services.
I have created this website with the intention of providing a repository of SEO related information in a structured format, as a guide for anyone with a website. In addition to this, the blog contains frequent updates reflecting the fluidity of SEO.
I hope you find it useful.
