Search engine optimization has become one of the most vital components in creating a successful online business. I've been working as an SEO expert for just over a decade now, optimizing websites for the leading search engines and directories. I have used this experience to provide you with all the information you need to optimize your website for the leading search engines; Google, Bing and Yahoo.
I donít really do consultancy work anymore as I work full time as SEO Product Manager for Groupon International now, plus several of my own projects in what little spare time I have left. However, if you are really stuck and having trouble then send me on your link and I will try and review your site and let you know if I see anything that might be hurting your rankings or outline areaís where you might improve.
Donít hold me to it though, I simply canít promise to look at every site sent in to me. Besides, Iím hoping that after going through this site, you wonít need anyone elseís advice! :)
In my Google Ranking section, I outline all the important techniques you will need to implement to ensure a high ranking within Googleís search engine. Everything is written in easy to follow steps to assist all budding SEO enthusiasts in increasing their website traffic. What you wonít find here is so called, SEO tricks (aka, blackhat techniques), designed to game the search engine.
If you go down that road there is only heart break at the end, believe me, I know! (Iíll go further into that later, but if you find that you have been caught cheating and you need to get back into Google after a penalty, then check out my reconsideration request page.)
There are no quick routes, no shortcuts. So prepare yourself for a bit of work, but the end result will mean longer lasting Google rankings built on a solid foundation that is made to last. Surely thatís worth the extra effort, right?
This is the main section of the site and it's continuing to grow. Here you will find all the most relevant information needed to ensure your website gets well ranked within Google. I have tried to keep it as straight forward as possible so that both PC literate and regular internet users can benefit from the information. This section covers the most important things you need to know about how to prepare your site for Google and ensure you get the best possible ranking.
If there's anything you can see that I can do to improve this section, please do not hesitate to contact me, all emails (negative and positive) will receive a response. My intention is to update this section shortly and then review it each month to ensure that the content is up to date and relevant. With the fast pace of SEO; only ever speeding upward, this will be a constant challenge. Iíll do my best, though. If you need more up-to-date stuff then I recommend these seo resources.
This is a new section dedicated to listing the best articles available for Search Engine Optimization techniques and strategies. Regularly updated with articles and advice on good Search Engine optimization practices. All articles are published with the authors consent and are also available in PDF format. Please feel free to contact me if you have an article you would like published in this section.
OEM Preinstallation Experts
The Microsoft Preinstallation Specialist Program is a tool Microsoft offers System Builders to increase success in selling business technology solutions based on the Windows operating system. I have recently completed the four Preinstallation exams which are available to take on the Microsoft OEM website. Find out more about how you can do the same.
Graphic Design Resources
In this section you will find a list of tutorial sites which I found to be the most informative. They are mostly Adobe PhotoShop tutorial sites as this is the program I use most regularly. These sites come recommended for both advanced and beginner graphic artists. Adobe Photoshop is a very powerful tool and all budding designers should make the most out of this excellent application.
Web Development Resources
Tired of looking for tutorials and code snippets? I have created a resource section listing some of the very best web development sites. These sites have all been reviewed and come highly recommended. If you need to update your site with new technologies, this is where you need to go. If you come across any sites that you feel should be listed in this section, again, please feel free to contact me so we can review them.
