    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.

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).

    Strategic Expert: SEO, PPC, Copywriting, Conversion Optimization

    India - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 6

    2012 was a watershed year for SEO. Panda and Penguin was a double whammy. They wiped out the article spinning industry. It is no longer possible to even try the kool aid of 200 links for $20 or any such grand schemes of "forcing" Google to rank your site. The Google algorithm has started using social signals to filter out the irrelevant corners of the web. Irrelevant in this case are the pages which get little or no traffic. While your backlink profile is still an important part of your ranking. Those any ole links won't count any more. Those who've depended on the links from their spun articles have seen their rankings decimated. Links have to be earned. They have to be social. They have to be "real". Those Facebook Likes are important. However trying to buy FB likes is also a zero sum game. Another mirage. Eventually Google will figure out the FB Likes gaming pattern (since the data is in plain sight anyway) and start filtering out those too. SEO today has to be completely strategic and has to mesh with your conversion funnel. And, as good insurance, SEO should be just one of your traffic channels. You need to make sure you have a fairly even spread of traffic channels to prevent it being a stranglehold on your business. That said, neglecting SEO can be "very expensive". A lot of highly relevant traffic can get missed. A typical business needs a strategy that covers SEO, PPC, Email Marketing, and Social plus an efficient conversion funnel that is being constantly optimized. Hire me if you need a strategic approach that looks at your entire business and helps you figure out what is a best fit for you. I'll review your business and help you draw up an actionable marketing blueprint that takes into account your current realities. I can also help you roll it out and provide additional services related to these.
