SEO & PPC pro delivering search engine marketing services across Sheffield & Yorkshire.

Experienced SEO & PPC Consultant

About Me

I began my online marketing career back in 2001 for an AIM stock exchange listed firm where I was responsible for the company web site, online marketing and rolling out/supporting group internet projects. My first seo experience began in 1999 when I successfully ranked a domain in Excite and Alta Vista (remember them?!). I loved it and was hooked.

With a background and general interest in marketing, I elected to specialise in search engine marketing due to its transparency, efficieny and value for money.

Over the past decade I have built a solid reputation for hard work and most importantly, the delivery of quality results – helping many clients turn search engine visibility into their most profitable sales and marketing channel. During the past 10 years, I have seen most of the spam, scams and poor business ethics in the industry and help steer clients away from these choppy waters!

I have 10 years experience in the design & build of web sites helping many clients develop highly successful internet presences. In particular I have strong knowledge of usability, accessibility, ecommerce, conversion rates, web analytics and server side admin. My clients range from start up e-commerce traders to international manufacturers.

My working week is mainly split between my time with the team at Ignition Search (Director Of Search) and my freelance work which involves speaking on behalf of government intermediaries (such as Business Link Yorkshire & SENTA) as well as hands on work, consultancy and training.
