What first drew you to the SEO industry?
Need for traffic for an online business I started back in 2004.
What encouraged you to join Gotch SEO Academy and learn with us?
I have worked/followed other SEO experts/gurus and over time discovered Nathan Gotch. From my background in SEO, what I felt I needed help with, and the other SEO experts I followed in the past I quickly realized Nathan provided more value and went the extra distance to share latest practices and tips. Above all, Gotch SEO really walks the talk which is very important to me.
What has the value of a Gotch SEO Academy education meant to you?
It did 2 things:
It helped me validate what I already knew in SEO, the information from Gotch SEO Academy allowed me to update my previous knowledge of SEO and also provided a framework.
What are your plans for the future?
Work in SEO by providing my services and/or collaborating with other companies, keep developing my sites (I have 2 sites/businesses that I am caring for), build other businesses online.
Is there any advice you’d like to share with new students who are aspiring SEOs?
– Learn what works from the right experts.
– Line up your practice with the user/visitor needs — make sure you understand what search engines want, in other words learn and practice good white hat SEO (Nathan mentions this countless times in the academy).
– As an SEO you are somewhat of a gatekeeper for the quality of information available on the internet, help making the internet a place that provides value, and not just a big banner ad.
