I’m a Leeds based technical SEO consultant with close to twenty years of experience working online in a range of capacities including web development, PPC management and primarily SEO.
I’ve worked both in-house and within an agency environment and I am currently employed as a technical strategist with one of the largest SEO agencies in the UK who were voted best Large SEO Agency at the 2018 UK Search Awards. During my time with Edit (formally Branded3) I have won numerous awards including newcomer of the year, employee of the month (twice) and the award for employee of the quarter.
I have a deep interest in the past, present and future of search on the web and am involved in various online communities and regularly attend industry conferences to ensure that my knowledge is fully up to date and I can provide the most cutting edge advice.
In addition to interacting online with others in the SEO community, I have also spoken at Brighton SEO which is one of the largest search marketing industry conferences in the world.
I have worked on hundreds of different sites throughout my career on a wide range of platforms including WordPress, Adobe Experience Manager, Umbraco and many others. I have also worked on sites across a wide range of some of the most competitive verticals including travel, gambling, cosmetic surgery and insurance to name a few.
Some of the Sites I’ve Worked on
Through my agency role I have had the opportunity to work on technical SEO strategy for some of the biggest brands in the UK including the following to name a few:
Comments About My Work
“When our clients had problems that more technical than the usual, I knew I could parachute in Mike and rely on him to figure it out. He’s knowledgeable to start and meticulous as he gets to the root of the issue – always willing to go above and beyond to get results for everyone he works with.”
Stephen Kenwright – Former Sales and Marketing Director at Edit
“Mike has worked on a few of our projects now, and I can honestly say that in 10+ years I’ve been working in the SEO industry, Mike is one of the most technically capable SEOs I know. Not only is his knowledge impressive, Mike also has a thirst for being up to date with the twists & turns of technical SEO, which is inspiring.”
What I really like in addition to these points, though, is his down to earth attitude and willingness to go above & beyond to make sure projects are a success.
Mike Gracia – Director, Thinkable.net agency.
