I'm currently working towards becoming a self-employed SEO. I've worked as an SEO specialist for a number of years (for other people), and want control over what I do - hence me 'going it alone'.
In order to 'go it alone', though, I'm going to need to gain trust from people in the industry - a.k.a - you guys!
I've worked for some BIG companies in the past (and I mean big players - the ones ranking top 3 for super-competitive terms), and I've managed their SEO campaigns, along with assisting with PPC, etc.
One of the things someone asked me recently is how do these big companies build their links and rank their sites - so I told them the basics and they told me I should get on here and share my knowledge.. so I am doing! I've seen WarriorForum in action before, but never had my own account, so I'm sorry if I'm a bit rusty!
Ok, I won't be telling you everything I know (that would be pointless!) but to prove myself on this forum, I'll answer your questions about SEO - whether it's how to deal with penalities or how to get high-juice links naturally.
This isn't a plot to make money - this is an honest approach to gaining a reputation. It's an inventive way, too, which I thought I'd give a go. So let's share ideas... ask me questions and I'll do my best to help you out based on what I've learnt and implemented for this big companies.
I can't name the companies, but I can tell you the BIG ones were in the finance industry, the car rental industry and the package holiday industry - I spent a good number of years working for all three.
SO -ask away!
Look forward to getting to know you all and maybe working with some of you.
