As an Internet Consultant…

Years ago, in my mind I used to separate “Search Engine Optimization” and “Internet marketing”, actually believing that the latter meant strictly “paid listings”, as in pay per click or banner ads.

Back in 2004 I wanted to specialize ONLY in organic SEO, but over the years I came to realize they were inevitably intertwined, and that any balanced campaign should include Pay Per Click advertising to at least “bridge the gaps”.

Nowadays, especially on mobile and tablets, the ads have become so prominent that users often have to scroll one or even two swipes past ads and Google Maps locationsbefore they even see the #1 organic listing.

“Search engine optimization” and “Internet marketing” have never been more closely aligned than they are at this point in time, and that’s why I became a Google Partner.

 

My History in Search:

I first began selling software online in 1999, then tinkering with pay per click advertising in 2001, while building a computer software and hardware business.

One day while visiting a law firm (that had had found me on Yahoo for “computer repair”), we started discussing Yellow Page advertising and Internet marketing. I ended up putting a pay per click campaign in place for them, and within just hours began having success.

In 2004, I began appearing on the front page of the search engines for some generic search terms like “internet consultant”, so I decided to put all of my attention into search, and gradually exited the other areas of my business, so I could focus exclusively on search marketing.
