About me and my background
Hi my name is Nate and I’ve been working in SEO since 2005, but I have been working online since 1997, back in the days when Google wasn’t even born and we had Excite and Alta Vista as search engines.
Now I’m not going to give you any of the usual “I’ve made millions online and this is how I did it” stuff, because that isn’t true for me. I was head of digital for a leading marking agency on a good salary and I left in the spring of 2015 to go it alone. But what SEO has given me is total independence. I don’t work for anyone, I can choose to work 1 hour a day or 16 hours a day. I can take a day off whenever I want, go on holiday whenever I want. SEO has made me financially comfortable. I have my own home and I want for nothing. Is it possible to make millions online? Absolutely, but that isn’t my goal, my goal is the independence and freedom to live how I want, work when I want and how I want, and I have achieved that.
What Sort of SEO Do I DO?
I have a number of clients who I carry out SEO services for, who are all on a monthly retainer, but I also do affiliate SEO, which if you don’t know is when you promote someone else’s product or service and you earn a commission off of each sale. There is a debate over which one is the best method, client SEO or affiliate SEO. Both have their merits and their downsides. You can make good money fast with client SEO, but you have to work on their websites and rankings on a regular basis. Affiliate can make you more money, and give you greater freedom as once a site ranks well you can do very little to it after that, but it can take a lot of work in the beginning for little reward, depending on the niche you are working in.
What Is This Site About?
So the purpose of this site is to give back and to help others as I share my knowledge concerning the things I have learnt, the mistakes I have made and the tools, methods and software I have used to be successful online. I will tell you what I recommend you use and do and what to not use or do, to help you also achieve your goal, through working online, whatever that goal may be.
