I began learning about search marketing before the turn of the century, and today I run an independent SEO consulting business in Portland
, a web hosting company
, a WordPress website
business, and I have developed a set of white label SEO tools for WordPress
(These text links are here because it used to be what was done in the old days, and I can't bring myself to remove em ;)
1999 - I first began dabbling in search while trying to get rid of over 4000 software titles we had accumulated at my local Portland computer & software store (Cyber Exchange) which we closed in 2002.
2002 - 2004 - With success at both PPC and organic ranking, I remained in the computer repair business on call, but quickly realized that I MUCH preferred working in search.
After forming Search Commander, Inc., I sought out formal training from Search Engine Workshops
, and I have been attending, learning, and speaking at various internet marketing conferences ever since.
- I developed SEO Automatic, an instant "on page" URL checker
that not only identified the issues, but provided my own advice, that I wrote.
The following year, we made that same tool available to other search firms as a WordPress plugin, editing their own advice, in both a free version
with 5 ranking factors at WP.org, and a premium version with 18 and more coming at SEO Automatic
The SEO Tools plugin gives the SEO Consultant the ability to to offer their visitors a URL box and button as a shortcode.
Pressing the button delivers a lengthy "on page" SEO analysis, giving your own feedback, advice and suggestions.
