about my technical seo freelancer services

Hello and thank you for visiting.technical seo freelancer


I have worked in computing from the late 80s in a variety of roles, developing solutions with different programming languages. I gained a BSc (Hons) Computing from Napier University in 1995 and then started working in website development.

I have a passion for all things search related and this compliments nicely with a HND in Business Studies where I majored in marketing.

I am proud of my technical SEO skills and how they can dramatically change the success of a projects web presence.

BSc Computing (Hons)

My honours degree exposed me to a variety of programming techniques. I loved database development, organisation of information and the internet. I keep up-to date with developments of modern search technology and have an in-depth understanding in all aspects of SEO. For example, in information retrieval “tf-idf” is a statistical model of how important a word is to a document in a collection. An understanding of this technology helps search engines "understand" your website and its keywords. With google, they have introduced "RankBrain and neural matching" in the past few years to improve SERPs. Please note that these concepts are part of hundreds of ranking factors that search engines use to rank keywords.


My hourly rate is £35

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Google My Business are just some of the many options available. We can offer advice/service on how to generate traffic to your website from image/video searches.

technical seo freelancer case study

Our client, Colinton Gardening Services - garden landscaping for Edinburgh, came to us early in March asking for help with building a website ( and internet marketing. They are a small specialist garden landscaping company.

I wrote all the copy for the website and related blogs / press releases. I performed an SEO audit and keyword research and my recommendations were accepted. I also built the website from scratch in 3 weeks.

Once the website was built and tested (mobile friendly & amp pages) I then embarked on a link building/blog placement/press release and website content development strategy.

This project was successful in targeting organic traffic ("raised beds Edinburgh", "retaining wall Edinburgh" and "garden renovation Edinburgh" all in 1st place in the rankings) with strong results in google local packs.
