1. Can you please share your experience highlights and achievements as an SEO professional?

I’ve had multiple projects in charge, since the local space, national and news sites. It’s very interesting to analyze how they are different from each other. My last experience is involved with news site. Links are nice, but if you have an authoritative site and you see not too much traffic as you expect. Then is a technical issue. 

In this kind of project is necessary to have a mentor, or someone as a reference, in my particular case Barry Adams, as a pro helped me to understand deeply some issues in the website in case. My favorite tools for these tasks are Screaming Frog and Deep Crawl.

By fixing technical issues we got 20% increasing organic traffic.

National websites are a different movement. SEO audits with these sites, generally smaller than 10,000 URLs are enough with Screaming Frog and Ahrefs. My guru, in this case, was Nathan Gotch. Nathan helped me to understand the fundamentals of the SEO world. After having a good technical SEO. A nice Link Building campaign and it’s time to shine. 

Local SEO seems to easy. But not for the size of the website is less work to apply. I ‘ve seen many quick wins but the on-page is elemental, some experts like Kyle Roof with its on-page SEO course and Semantic Mastery guys, and Local Client Takeover guys have taught me essentials set up for improving Google Properties. 

All SEO fields have common tools and branches like On-Page, Link building, Technical SEO, but the understanding of how different they are is different scenarios are the best I’ve learned.

By taking advantage of organic first results and map packs we have increased leads from small companies like dentists, optometrists, and building companies.

2. What are your unique strengths as an SEO? Why do these companies need to hire you?

I am good at learning, if you have a workflow then it’s no problem and if you don’t I help you to develop one. I am a Method man and at the same time, I like to speak a lot. So communication will not be a problem. When I don’t know some topic I like to ask the professionals.

3. What type of SEO roles or jobs are you interested in?

Ideally I would love to be the Head of technical SEO at a distributed agency that allowed me to work with a variety of clients from all sectors. News, and E-Commerce sites are some sectors interested in develop skills.

4. How would you like to contribute in your next SEO role? What’s the impact you wish to have?

I’d love to work as a team, to find new issues related to technical SEO, and to share some knowledge with the team.

5. What type of companies would you love to work with and why?

I’d love to work with companies that has challenges in Technical SEO mainly. Huge websites or e-commerce sites. I love challenges and I think this kind of sites.

6. Why do you work remotely?

Remote work is the way I can focus the most. I‘ve developed my way to work efficiently and working remotely has allowed me to work with big brands.

7. How do you tackle remote work challenges? (productivity, communication, etc.)
