    SEO Consultant

    Romania - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 20

    With over 10 years of SEO and web development experience I can do a lot for your business. From creating a website until reaching top positions in the major search engines. I can manage multiple small or large projects at once and I can advise on website migrations.I use only quality white hat SEO methods for guaranteed results and I am up to date with all the changes in this industry. On my last workplace I was the manager of the SEO department at an international media company covering Romania, Hungary, Austria and Ukraine that had a total of over 100 web portals and over 500 employees. I have created and designed until now over 200 websites mostly by using third party CMS web software like Wordpress/Joomla and I helped out over 100 different websites in different niches and from different countries to improve their rankings. I am punctual, I like to deliver the projects on time, I am integrating quick into the work environment, I have the ability to organize and manage multiple projects and the capability of adapting and learning new SEO rules and apply them. I am also interested on everything that is new in this field and I am up to date with all the news. Here is a short list of what I can do for your business: Keyword Research Reports Mobile Friendly Website Optimization Onpage/Offpage optimization Image/Video Optimization Local Search Optimization Content Writing/Publishing Social media management I am not a programmer so I do not touch complex changes in the website. I'm not your guy if you want a custom plugin or a function to be created. My work as a consultant contains detailed information on how to improve elements of your website. The actual implementation will be done by your programmers or on some cases by me. My offpage work consists in implementing and suggesting the best ways to achieve quality links from link analysis to implementation based on the client's budget. I do not make AdWords campagins or ads optimization (for that I have a colleague).

    I'm not one of those people who are being satisfied with the simple things. In life I have learned to respect the deadlines, follow the instructions and use them to get to the best possible result. I do not accept a job solely for financial gain but because I want to improve and perfect my knowledges. From my employer I expect to provide me a totaly freedom, because a perfectionist like me knows very well how to do his job. I like to improve myself everyday, learn unusal and non common things. My biggest passion are languages. I am fluent in Italian, English and Spanish. I'm a professor of Italian and Spanish and I have a strong desire to prove myself. I would like to open language school, which will be dominated by Italian and Oriental languages​​, above all Hindi. I have extensive experience in translation and I'm a person that will meet all your expectations in terms of translation. I speak Italian from the age of seven and the majority of Italian speakers do not believe that I was not born in Italy. This is a brief summary of my experiences and expectations, and you should contact me if you are offering a job in the field of Italian language. My primary interest is the Italian language but I'm also interested in jobs like: data entry, administrative support, blog writing, article writing, virtual assistent, web design, autoCAD modelling etc. My expressed qualities are optimistic spirit, communication skills, accuracy and extraordinary verbal skills.
