I’m a Manchester Based SEO

It gets referred to by so many different names these days. Some SEO agencies have rebranded as content marketing agencies. Others refer to SEO as “organic performance.” Whatever you call it, to me it’s still very much SEO, albeit that the tactics have changed.

I love SEO. I still do it for a living and I still blog about right here (though I hold my hands up – I’m guilty of frequent blog neglect)!

I Still Blog About SEO

Long gone are the glory days of huge budgets blown on anchor text links for quick, competitive SEO wins. A few algorithm updates later and the SEO landscape is a completely different one to the one I entered in 2009.

But honestly, the newer overlap with content marketing and PR is right up my street. I’m an SEO at heart but a copywriter by background, so the evolution of SEO in recent years has been something I’ve both enjoyed and been challenged by.

Do you have something to say about SEO? Give me a shout on Twitter if you’d like to write here.
