It hasn't stopped there as I work with clients to continually improve conversion rates from those visitors. My background has been in software and technical support so I am equipped in dealing with all the major CMS as well as bespoke systems. I work as a complete SEO package for smaller sites and for larger business plug into their existing structure.
My work is all about building the brand, developing the right traffic through the main channels, helping that traffic to convert and that traffic wanting to keep loyal to the site.
SEO should be holistic in approach and all about wanting to give the visitor a great experience.
SEO has evolved over the years from picking a few keywords and using whatever was available to squeeze a high ranking in Google, to be part of an overall inbound marketing strategy where user experience is the primary driver. This has been in part moulded into proper shape by major algorithmic changes in Google and many years ago I recognised that "cheating" was purely unethical and at some point always failed.
I also specialise in Google penalty recovery, mainly recovering from Penguin or Panda manual or algorithmic penalties. Sometimes traffic trails off over a period for varying reasons and I analyse and develop a strategy for recovery.
***WHAT I DO NOT DO, OR ASSOCIATE WITH***
Low quality content
Low quality link building strategies
Fake/forced social media activity
Any bulk/automated service
Most of those practices will at some point be picked up by Google, if not immediately, and hit with either a manual or algorithmic penalty. Cheap SEO can cripple a site for months and can be very costly to put right. The frightening thing is that these kinds of services are still rife.
For pay per click advertising I effectively setup and manage Google Adwords campaigns, for search, display and remarketing. Continually optimising to improve quality score, lower cost per click and improve conversions.
I have worked with small start-ups to high revenue mid-size business. At the top end managing an account with £0.3 million budget.
If I could summarize myself I’d like to say that I am one of the good guys. If I take on a job I want to be part of the team and I genuinely want to see the website benefit long term not just the short term. I’m open and transparent in what I do and adapt to change. I take advice from leading inbound marketing experts to continually grow, as SEO is forever evolving and every website has it's own merits and pitfalls.

Very valuable help with a tricky problem.
Absolutely Excellent - very quick turn around coming up with solution for a 'complicated' matter of a larger website with over 12,000 users per day.
Mick was hugely helpful and steered me in all the right directions - resulting in a great improvement in site speed. Thanks!
Geat Michael, thanks.
You saw a lot of problems we have to solve.
Thanks, will be back
Great to work with!
Mick has taken a lead role and given us lot of actions. I am very happy with his work so far. However yet to see the results which will take time!
Very good advice received and fast at replying. Thanks.
Mike done a fantastic job for me. He also advised me on my websites performance in the search engines and gave me an on and off-site link building report.
Because of the neutral rating I just wanted to add that for the low fee I analysed all the data and website content and provided a clear strategy to resolve the ongoing non-indexing issue. These were the requirements of the project and were provided in a timely manner.
Just a little extra for all your hard work.]
Mick, fixed the problem I was having with IIS web connection and checked everything else on the server.
Highly recommended, helpful and provided outstanding communication.
