The Brighton SEO Conference 2013 UK Salary Survey (click here to read it) stated freelancers have longer professional experience (an average of 5 years) in SEO consultancy than agency staff. I've been freelance full-time since 2008 with over 9 years professional experience and have well over twice the professional experience of the average agency / in-house SEO staff member according to this survey.

Here is my Linkedin profile for case studies etc. If you add me you can see my testimonials. This site ranks for a few phrases:

Brands and companies I have worked on / for in digital marketing and / or PPC advertising since I went freelance in 2008 include the following:
  • ITV
  • Lloyds Banking Group
  • Mediacom (UK's largest media agency and part of GroupM / WPP)
  • ETS PLC
  • Yamaha Music UK
  • Cubiks
  • Heals
  • SThree
  • Travel Weekly Group 
  • FreeAds.co.uk. 

I've worked on (international) sites for 2 of the "Big 4" UK banks & have also worked for 2 of the UK’s Top 50 Digital Agencies according to econsultancy.com's 2013 report including Tangent Snowball. I am not able to list all the brands / companies I have worked for / on due to non-disclosure agreements.

This site may look a little plain :) but I made it myself using Google Sites and as you can probably tell I'm not a web designer and I have absolutely no use for a logo or a brand! I specially constructed this to load quickly without large images ;) ! You might have the prettiest, flashy website but if it's not visible in search results and won't convert visitors to leads / purchasers then you are as good as dead and /or buried in the search results - unless you want to pay for every click to your site with Adwords or other online advertising. I have spend a total of around £25 advertising my services on Google since 2008 (- this was free credit and I still have credit left). See http://www.semrush.com/info/history/index.html/plot/line/all//seolondonsurrey.co.uk/uk/Ac//uk/Ac//uk/Ac//uk/Ac//uk/Ac for ballpark, approximate data from a 3rd party on my Ad spend on Google over the past 5 years.

You won't be paying for my flashy Silicon Roundabout office in Shoreditch when you hire me (because I work mainly from home) on Surrey / Hampshire borders area with easy access to the London & South UK area including Guildford, Reading, Crawley, Brighton, Portsmouth, Bristol, Plymouth and beyond.

I am not available for full-time (contract / interim) work. I've worked on sites affected by the Google 'Panda' and 'Penguin' updates (not as a result of my work!) including one with an Unnatural Link Warning and penalty (which I identified after 2 other "SEO Experts" failed to spot & is now lifted) & another with what appeared to be 'Negative SEO' (possibly from a competitor).

I've even been engaged by various competitors in Surrey and Sussex to optimise and build links to their sites. Doh! - but one can't turn down work...

I have a track record of helping (ecommerce) clients obtain Top 10 positions across the major search engines in competitive areas including professional services, double glazing, insurance etc.

I have worked as a Certified Google Adwords Professional and my expertise is in digital marketing, Google Adwords pay per click advertising, search engine optimisation (using a content management system), online strategy research / analysis / definition for businesses of all sizes (up to a turnover of £100 million per year), copywriting etc. I have managed and advised on (international) pay per click advertising campaigns with variable budgets of up to £1000 per day.
