Joined 9 years ago from London
I have been involved in web marketing since 1999.
When I ran a team of 15 developers for a web agency in 99. In those early days a web marketing project arrived on my desk, which we had never tackled before. The client asked for their website to appear on Altavista,FAST,Northern Lights,iwon,Ask,Lycos,MSN,yahoo and also the new kid on the block Google (who opened their doors in September 1998).
I managed to get their domain a top listing on Google and other search engines using the top 100 keywords/phrases for ‘Property’ within a few weeks.
In 2002 I started TOP PAGE, www.top-page.co.uk SEO specialise in natural / Organic Search Engine Optimisation. The first year was tough because hardly anyone had broadband or knew of Google and my customers were paying for dial-up connections. It was an education for most people at that time. When they could see that broadband was going to be available to everybody and that searching and browsing the internet would explode, SEO was a must for their business.
2004 – UK broadband takeup doubled
2005 – Online Gaming explosion
2006 – Youtube sold $1.65 Billion to Google
2008 – Iphone out sells all other mobiles & PDA’s
2009 – Twitter, web 2.0 social media explosion
2010 - Google release 'Caffeine' update Ipad Launched
