I’ve been working full-time as a UK based freelance SEO consultant for close to 20 years, working remotely with relatively small businesses with a small marketing budget.
SEO Job Search
I’m looking for a big change in direction, I’m looking for a remote full-time SEO job in a larger business with a BIG marketing budget. I want to work on a big brand website with a huge range of products for sale.
As a freelance SEO consultant almost all of my SEO work has been advice based: I find SEO problems with a website and offer possible solutions the business implements. I enjoy the work (I love solving SEO problems), but I want more.
A good example of my SEO research skills tracking down SEO issues is my Camping World Review.
I had no access to the Camping World domain or any analytics data, yet tracked down multiple serious SEO issues. I also have the technical skills to fix the SEO errors listed in my Camping World SEO review article.
I contacted Camping World regarding the SEO errors, but sadly several months later ALL the SEO errors remain! In my SEO review I didn’t even get to the Google Lighthouse problems.
Camping world needs an experienced technical SEO expert like me to fix those and other SEO mistakes.
I’ve been fixing these and worse SEO issues on websites and dedicated servers for over a decade and a half. Most SEO issues are easy to fix, but if you lack the skilled/experienced staff to even recognise there’s a problem, no one will fix them!

As an SEO Consultant I’ve NEVER reviewed a website which couldn’t be improved significantly SEO wise.
Over the past 20 years I’ve rarely got my “hands dirty” working on actual clients website content/code. What I want is a full-time SEO job with a more hands on role, fixing SEO code mistakes, adding improvements, working on optimizing content etc…
I’ve been performing this exact role for my own network of websites (at one point over 150 domains) building websites from scratch, creating engaging content, managing dedicated/virtual servers, creating WordPress SEO themes/plugins, building backlinks, promoting over social media etc…
For example I built this SEO Gold website from scratch: I created the WordPress SEO Theme (Stallion Responsive), multiple supporting SEO plugins and features, plus all the content and all the backlinks.
I currently have three Twitter accounts promoting this websites content via a set of PHP scripts I built to share WordPress Posts and WordPress Attachment Pages: basically the entire site is treated like a repository of Tweets which are shared on a schedule, results in about 1,000 Tweets a month.
In total I’ve built two dozen Twitter accounts totalling hundreds of thousands of followers to promote some of my websites. I want to use my skills to achieve even better results for a large brand like Camping World: a brand with a large website and a LOT of products for sale.

Technical SEO Specialists are Rare
I have exceptional technical SEO skills, I always aim for SEO perfection. Take a look at this websites Google PageSpeed Insights Results, 100/100 for Desktop and 100/100 for Mobile.
If you doubt these types of screenshots check the Google PageSpeed Insights Results yourself and then test your own domain.
To achieve the above perfect Google PageSpeed Insights results required understanding:
Server Management: a lot of page speed issues can only be fixed at server level.
WordPress Expertise: Few WordPress themes and plugins are truly SEO friendly, they need modification or even replacing/removing.
Page speed is not only important to Google rankings (speed is a ranking factor), but also to the user experience and sales. Research by Google, Amazon and many others has shown a slow website costs sales.
If your website is slow, you need a technical SEO expert like me on your team.
Who Should Employ Me?
I know what sort of business would benefit from my SEO skill set.
I’m looking to work with a business with a large website where a relatively modest 10% increase in traffic in under a year would be worth paying $100,000+ a year for.
The perfect businesses are like Amazon, Flipkart, eBay, Camping World… they have large marketing budgets and huge websites where fixing SEO mistakes and adding new features (like how every image on this site is Tweeted on a schedule) have the potential to increase Google rankings a small amount, but there’s so much content the traffic increases are huge.
Consider if you have a lot of Google page one rankings, but many are in the top 5-10 range, just outside the real money zone. Relatively small SEO improvements can change those rankings to top 1-5 where the real money is.
If I’m describing your website, I can probably help generate a LOT of new organic Google traffic and speed up your site for users increasing sales from your current traffic.
Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with information about your website needs and I’ll get back to you.
Update March 2020: Received a couple of interesting contacts fro medium sized business, but nothing firm so far. Since deciding to look for a full-time SEO job at the end of 2019 I had a new SEO business idea which provides some of what I want long-term: more hands on website SEO work, less SEO consulting.
With a little bit of luck will have a new local SEO web design service running for plumbers and electricians in May 2020. If it works out well it could develop into a digital marketing agency.
