Search Engine Marketer

I’ve decided to relaunch my website as just a blog.

My name is Peter Handley, and I am a search engine marketer.
I first created this website a few years ago as a test bed website for the search engine optimisation work that I was learning the ropes about at the time.
As a result of this work, I’ve achieved some pretty respectable Hayling Island Web Design based rankings, which has surprisingly delivered a lot of leads to my website.
I work full time as team leader of the Search Engine Optimisation team at Vertical Leap – a portsmouth based Internet Marketing company. The company has grown and grown in the time that I have been there, and any time that I might have once had to design some websites gets quickly gobbled up – so I decided it was time for a change.
I’m just not enough of a designer to be able to continue having a website advertising web design services.
Looking back at the last 2 websites that I designed, they are thoroughly broken in some newer versions of browsers, and I don’t have the inclination to work out the problems. Fortunately they seem ok in IE – and their webstats show me that over 90% of their traffic comes from these browsers, so they are both happy. Both sites were designed for close family and friends though, so I am sure that they will convince me to fix them if they ever notice.
I’m going to concentrate this blog on my life as a search marketer – I probably wont be blogging about anything specific with SEO techniques etc – I have to write a couple of blogs a week at Vertical Leap, so wont be saving any of the juicy stuff for this website when it will help that website more.
I’ll also be using this as a log of various things coming up in my life. I’ve just been told I have tickets to see Pearl Jam at the o2 in August, which I am really excited about, and am due to be the best man at one of my oldest friends wedding in June too. I’m pretty excited about that too, but someone intimidated too, and I need to finish my speech pretty soon, as it needs to be translated into Spanish for half the guests as my friend is marrying a lovely Spanish lady (although I doubt Sandra will ever read this flattery!)
