Craig was a wonderful asset to us in our project to enhance and re-launch the Central Equine web site!

I had dealt with a couple other SEO (Search Engine Optimization) guys before Craig and he blows them out of the water!

He has been the most knowledgeable person on SEO that I had the opportunity to deal with.

Craig did all the work for us remotely and rarely was in the office but we could count on him to get everything done.

Passion & Pride

I LOVE what I do!

Organic SEO is my thing.

I keep my finger on the pulse of the industry, of what Search Engines are doing. I follow Blogs, Podcasts, Videos and more. Why? I love it.

Because of this, you can rest assured that I will take a personal interest in your brand and goals, to make sure you get results. Why? Again, because I love it.

But also because my name will be associated with the efforts – and that’s where the sense of Pride comes in.

Experience

I’m a bit older, so I’ve watched the Internet, the World Wide Web, if you will, grow from grey backgrounds and the tag in HTML into the wild behemoth it is today.

I’ve managed entire online web portals for Hewlett-Packard in South East Asian countries.

I’ve optimized websites in highly-competitive industries, like the Vacation Rental Industry.

I’ve been doing this stuff for years, following trends, experimenting, growing and learning.

No fly-by-night, questionable newbie here! Just solid, passionate experience.

Skilled

Aside from experience, I’ve got the skills. I know my way around Front-End technologies like HTML and CSS.I’m also an avid fan of the CMS WordPress and can work in its innards of PHP and Mobile Responsive frameworks.

Reporting, Google Analytics, SEMRush, Moz, Raven Tools, Ahrefs and other popular tools? Yep – I got that.
