My Path to Search Engine Enlightenment

My name is Peter Handley, and I am a search engine marketer.

I’ve been interested in computers for as long as I can remember – starting out with my Spectrum in the 80s, moving on to an Atari after the tape deck died (and I was happy to learn that they are remaking Carrier Command as I spent a lot of hours on that when I was younger, some old pics are on Wiki, though they look terrible now), before moving on to a “proper” PC a few years later, using DOS and Windows.

My first experience of the “the web” was using AOL in the mid 90s and this was my first exposure to the term “keyword”. I talked in Internet chat rooms, searched for information on these keyword, looking for information to help with school projects, and even built my first website with a few friends, a site dedicated to the joys of cheese (sad I know, but we were only just teenagers and still hadn’t found booze then).

Facebook Vanity URL, Best Man Speech, new phone plans and Annoying Google UK SERPs

Morning guys and gals – been way too long since I last wrote a blog post.

Since then I’ve been off on a stag do that I organised for my good friend Ben, been playing lots of resident evil 5 (god I hate those guys with Chainsaws) and have been working hard at the office to keep on top of everything.

This morning I managed to get my “vanity” facebook URL – I’m – a strange name “ismepete” I’ll grant you, but its been a name that I have been using for years, and its not something that anyone else seems to use – I’m ismepete on lots of sites, its my PSN id, my twitter name, used to be my MySpace name (before I got bored of it and joined the legion of people leaving the place), so at least I am consistent. Not quite sure if there is any real point in getting one, but hey ho, why not eh?

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.
