Hi, I’m Dan and as the H1 tag above implies, I have a scientific approach to SEO strategy.
What this means for you is that I base my recommendations on data. That is, looking at the SERPs, analysing what ranking pages are doing (and why Google is rewarding them), making changes, measuring the impact of said changes, before making a conclusion on whether something is effective (or not).
My Latest SEO Insights
There is no shortage of SEO fluff out there. I promise you’ll find something worth implementing in each of my blog posts.
About Me & My SEO Methodology
During the day, I work for one the best SEO agencies in Sydney. Here I educate and coach small business owners and marketing managers so that they can maximise their SEO efforts.
Outside of work, I continue to work with a small number of private clients of my own. Doing this keeps me always up to date with what is happening in the world of Search.
I produce a podcast series called Make SEO Simple Again.
I’m invested in local SEO (GMB optimisation).
As well as organic SEO (ranking pages for a target keyword).
I’m a wizard at content strategy and I’m particular strong at getting your on-page elements (headings, page title, text, internal links) to get you maximum visibility in the competitive SERPs.
Before I made the transition to digital marketing, I was a Sydney wedding photographer for 9+ years. During this period, I scoured the internet for SEO advice. Much to my disappointment, there was an abundance of misinformation.
For this reason, I began documenting things that I wish I would have come across when I was first learning the ropes of SEO. In particular, I have an actionable SEO guide for wedding photographers as well as a specific SEO tutorial for wedding videographers.
If you are a small business owner who wants to learn how to leverage SEO to increase online visitors and sales, stick around and read through my blog posts.
You will find guides that cover both theory and actionable tips on the following areas:
- local SEO (Google My Business optimisation)
- organic SEO
- keyword research
- SEO strategy
- content strategy
- on-page optimisation
In addition to this, I can offer you with SEO strategy, carry out comprehensive keyword research (based on your competitors), and general SEO consulting.
