About Me and My SEO Experience

I’ve worked in SEO since 2014, starting as an intern and going on to manage SEO teams at SEO agencies in the UK, before becoming a full-time freelance SEO consultant. That means I’ve been doing this for nearly a decade.

I’ve delivered SEO results to clients across the globe of all sizes, from one-man-band tradespeople in Wakefield to billion dollar enterprises in the USA. 

In my spare time I follow my beloved Oxford United home and away and my equally beloved Union Berlin from afar.

Who I work with as a freelance SEO Consultant

SEO Consultant for Agencies

I act as additional SEO support for agencies and help them in any way I can,  acting as an extension of their SEO team. That could be with more hands-on SEO tasks when capacity is stretched, or white-labelling all of their work for particular clients. I can also provide general consultancy and SEO training. 

SEO Consultant for Clients

I work directly with clients on SEO strategy and implementation. How much involvement I have is down to you and your business needs; I can take care of your entire SEO strategy if you have no internal resources, or I can work alongside marketing managers and development teams as an extension of your team.

My SEO Results; a snapshot

Nobody likes a random search console graph without context, but here’s one anyway!

A mixture of existing content purging and improvement, new topical content velocity and ongoing technical improvements saw organic traffic treble YoY around 6 months after starting work. 

My SEO approach

Bespoke Solutions

There is no blueprint in SEO. Every site & every situation is different, requiring a bespoke approach. Every site I audit and every strategy I work on is unique, and I’ll never give generic SEO advice for the sake of sounding clever.

Impactful Implementation

There’s a million different things you can do in SEO; the key is knowing which ones are worth working on with the available resources. I’ll only ever recommend or work on changes that I believe will actually make an impact.

Hands-On SEO Help

A lot of people in the industry love talking about SEO, but don’t enjoy doing it so much. I’m the opposite; I went freelance partly so I could get back to being more hands-on with the sites I work on. 

What can SEO do for businesses?

Nearly a third of all business is conducted online now, and around 75% of all people looking for a service or product online don’t know which company they will use or buy from.

More likely than not, they’ll end up going with one of those who appear on the first page of the search results. That’s where an SEO specialist can come in handy. Looking for an SEO Agency in Wakefield, Yorkshire? Work with an SEO Consultant instead.

Why is SEO a good digital marketing channel for  businesses?

Putting time and effort into SEO has helped businesses of every size in Yorkshire grow online, ensuring that their site is visible when someone searches for their product or service.

Unlike paid search advertising, SEO doesn’t bring instant results. But it tends to be far more sustainable and deliver a much better return on investment over a longer period when it’s done properly.

Feel like your business isn’t reaching people online? Are your competitors appearing above you in relevant search results? Not getting enquiries through your website? Then Search Engine Optimisation can help:
