How my SEO skills can help
I'm considered a expert technical SEO Consultant, equally at home working on large, complex ecommerce websites in multiple languages and locations, to a small WordPress start-up.
I help you scope out and develop your objectives and strategy. You might be considering a domain migration, or internationalization into new regions and languages. Whatever it is, I can help advise on the best approach.
I are well known within the industry for my technical capabilities due to the many web sites I've worked on. I also have the technical expertise to analyze the data, provide insight and make prioritised, actionable recommendations.
Keyword & Market Research
I conduct extensive keyword, audience and market research to help guide your SEO strategy and allow me to make smarter decisions for clients to improve targeting, match intent and ultimately, improve your bottom line.
On Site SEO
I analyse your website's structure, UX & other key elements that are weighted within the Google algorithms to provide recommendations for improved relevancy, targeting and experience. From content enhancements, to site speed adjustment, to Schema mark-up, 301 redirects, we don't miss a thing.
Google Penalty Recovery
I have now helped 29 websites recover from Google algorithmic updates such as Panda & Penguin, as well as ongoing core algorithm updates and even manual actions. We regularly evaluate Google quality updates which now use machine learning and consider user engagement signals.
If you're considering moving to a new website, and or a new domain, or have experienced problems in a migration, I can help. I have extensive experience in guiding some of the largest websites migrations successfully, and quickly identifying issues after problematic moves.
Relationships are and will continue to be the foundation for my success.
