Gord Collins – SEO / Content Strategist

Experience: Beginning in 1998 with 4 digital agencies, and with my own successful digital marketing business for 8 years (Bay Street SEO), which included a major branding guru client in Boston for 5 years.

Strategy: Why choose a professional SEO Content Strategist? It’s in designing a top down strategy to give your website marketing a clear focus.  My ability as a researcher, writer, and search engine optimizer packs quite a punch. I can provide you with the exceptional quality, depth, and persistence to help you dominate your market. See the SEO/Content Strategy service packages.

Ongoing Research: I’ve studied Google’s algorithm patents throughout the years — from the original PageRank all the way to RankBrain™.  I was there when Google was born and attended my first SES Convention in 1998 where I met a very young Sergei Brin (Cofounder of Google).

Authoritativeness: In my new book The SEO/Content Strategy Guide 1.0, I provide the most in-depth description of Google’s master algorithm, RankBrain™. Become my client and you’ll have your very own FREE copy. It comes eternally updated too.

Investing in your business success is simple and here’s the formula:

Expertise + knowledge + creativity + experience + funding + technology + strategy + time = Winning Results.

My strategy, ingenuity, low cost, and sustained productivity combined with the right funding, creative graphic/web design specialists will generate unparalleled leads and sales revenue for your company.

Competition is the number one problem. We’ll craft a strategy and a brand that will eliminate all competition.

Only Hire A Pro Who Is Passionate and Committed to What They Do

I’m very hard-working, put in long hours every day. Yet I also enjoy mountain biking, tennis, hockey, baseball and track and field. I’m trying to return to track & field (a former pole vaulter). Hopefully, you’ll see some video of that someday soon. I enjoy travelling, especially California and the Canadian Rockies.
