Ontario’s SEO Expert

I have 12 1/2 years of performing SEO in house with Forest City Surplus. I also have 10 years of experience consulting clients with SEO. During that time I was able to achieve page one Google.ca search results for terms through on-page and off-page SEO best practices.  This success made me ask the question back in 2011 if I was hiring an SEO what would be the one thing I would look for?  I realized that it was is a track record. A proven list of results that would let me know that the person I was hiring was able to achieve success on Google for the terms that he or she was targeting.

So I put out for public record a long list of keywords which elevated the sites I work for to rank in the top ten on Google. If you click on the links provided, they should provide you with similar results as to what I have posted. These results may vary depending on the history of the websites you’ve clicked on and your geographic location. All this can affect what results Google displays for you.  These search results were last updated December 9th, 2016.

Recently I worked on a technical SEO problem for one of the highest-profile wedding planning blogs in Canada weddinggirl.ca. The new website they launched featured a different URL to the previous site. As a website that receives tens of thousands of visitors a month the goal was to avoid losing readers by ensuring links from the old website still worked for the new website. My cost effective plan within a tight budget was to setup for the 250 most popular pages 301 redirects to the new URLs from various types of URLs that were generated over the years. To avoid problems with 404 error reports with Google approximately 550 redirects were created to send users to the homepage.
