    Romania - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 21

    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).

    Expert C#/.NET Developer Newly Returned To Upwork. First Hire Discount

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 21 - Portfolio: 8

    If you don't have IT or software project experience, please don't contact me (unless you're a trusting adventure-seeker :) Bring Your Own Designer! IT Industry Knowledge Includes: - Best-practice Design & Implementation - B2B & B2C e-commerce - Systems Automation - BPR/Workflows- SaaS/Web 2.0 - Cobranding Vertical Industry Knowledge Includes: - Real Estate, Construction and Manufacturing management systems - Insurance (workflow) - Digital Media (distribution and conversion automation) - Healthcare (data collection & management) Some Background Information: - I have designed, implemented, and administered a wide variety of m$ft infrastructures, operating systems, servers, and applications for over 10 years. - I manage Apache, NFS, Samba, Asterisk, Bind, and other services on Red Hat-esque (CentOS, Fedora) servers. - I have been working with .Net since it was in beta. Before getting into C#, I used VB.Net for several years. - I've been writing enterprise-scale business and data layer code for over 4 years. - I've been managing and programming Microsoft SQL Server since version 6.5 (and am up to date on 200X), and Microsoft Access for many years. - I've worked with MySQL/SQLite and PHP (4+) as a hobbyist for several years. I can perform most any task required to update an existing site, but am probably not suited for a new development project in PHP.- Prior to .Net I programmed in traditional asp using VB Script, COM & DTC. - I manage my own dedicated windows 2k3/8 servers with multiple running applications and servers. - I have experience with a wide variety of third-party components and controls., and can assist in integration, middleware, queuing services, etc. - I'm not a graphic designer, and prefer to leave site layouts and graphics to someone more suited to that type of work. I am ok with creating basic layouts (and working within the popular graphics editing programs), but for a polished look, I'll either work with your designer or contract to another party on your behalf to acheive the look that you're after. Getting What You Pay For: Sure, you can find loads of developers here and on other similar service sites at a fraction of my rates. Why would you pay me? - I will stand behind my work. If you're unhappy, we'll fix it. - I will not charge for time spent figuring out how to solve general technical problems. If I don't already know how to implement a relevant solution, I will spend MY time researching and figuring it out. We're supposed to be professionals, and if we don't understand what the problem is, we shouldn't be charging you. Besides: each time I solve a unique problem, it makes me more effective; for you, me, and my next happy client! NOTE: Most of my work is done for companies' internal intranet, operations and LOB applications. I've added a few items to the portfolio, but please ask me about the other work which I can't showcase. While I'm often bound by NDA/Confidentiality agreements, I can explain more about my background in a general way than is illustrated publicly.
