What’s this website about?

This is a website for my search engine optimization (SEO) consulting practice. Since 2002 I’ve worked on 100+ websites to improve rankings and increase the number of converting visitors from organic search (Google, Bing, Yandex).

Feel free to review a list of services I provide. Check some of my SEO-related guides. I like answering questions, so by all means, fire away, ask you SEO questions here.

You are in the right place if...

  1. Your site has recently lost traffic from search engines and you need help recovering.
  2. You’re planning to create a website and need to make sure it’s search engine friendly.
  3. You’ve just created a site that needs SEO work done ASAP.
  4. You have a question related to search engine optimization.
  5. You represent a marketing agency that needs SEO help for its clients.
