The Brighton SEO 2013 UK Salary Survey states freelancers have longer professional experience (an average of 5 years) in SEO consultancy than agency staff. I've been freelance full-time since 2008 and have over twice the professional experience of the average agency / in-house SEO staff member according to this survey. You won't be paying for my flashy Silicon Roundabout office when you hire me (because I work mainly from home).
Here is my Linkedin profile. If you add me you can see my testimonials.
Brands and companies I have worked on / for in my time in online marketing / SEO include ITV, Lloyds Banking Group ,Mediacom (UK's largest media agency), ETS PLC, Yamaha Music UK, Robert Dyas, Heals, Travel Weekly Group, Starcom MediaVest Group (world's largest media agency and part of Publicis - one of the top 5 advertising agencies worldwide), Free Ads, Jordans (UK's number one company formation agent) etc. I am not able to list all the brands / companies I have worked 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! 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 buried in the search results - unless you want to pay for every click to your site with Google Adwords advertising.
I work from the Surrey / Hampshire borders area with easy access to the London & South UK area including Guildford, Reading, Crawley, Brighton, Portsmouth, Bristol, Plymouth and beyond.
I've been freelance since 2008 (over 6 years) with 8+ years professional experience, and I am not available for full-time (contract) 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 accross 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 search engine optimisation (using a content management system), experienced in online strategy research / analysis / definition for businesses of all sizes (up to a turnover of £100 million per year), pay per click advertising, copywriting etc. I have managed and advised on (international) pay per click advertising campaigns with variable budgets of up to £1000 per day.
