I spent about a decade researching and practicing SEO. I started young. I ran an agency and had dozens of competitive-niche clients. I ran a successful agency, but got out of the business. I wasn’t being paid enough for the quality of work I was capable of. I am probably one of the worlds best experts at this point. I don’t like the phrase “Search Engine Optimisation”. What people really mean when they say “SEO” is “SAM” – which is a term that I coined.
Search Algorithm Manipulation (SAM)
There is no such thing as SEO – rather, SEO is really just good programming, PR and marketing. For most businesses that need to rank (and want to spend less on Adwords) SEO is irrelevant – they’re in need of SAM.
I’m a computer science expert. I’m a developer. I’ve studied complex mathematics and algorithms and I understand search algorithms and AI. Which is why I’m capable of manipulating them. Through my own strategies, software, code and scripts.
This kind of skill set was worth more than $100 per hour. This kind of skill set should be reserved for big companies or high-paying clients – not medium to small businesses that are looking to save a buck.
So that’s why I shut down my agency – there are more reasons than this, and I cover these reasons in another post on this site.
But this doesn’t change the fact that I’m one of the most capable search algorytm manipulators on this planet.
