Thanks for checking out my website.
I am Nick Samuel and I work in Digital Marketing specialising in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).
My first grad job was as an SEO Analyst back in 2013 and ever since then my focus has been on understanding search engines and growing organic traffic.
I love the constant challenges each new website brings, staying on top of the latest best-practices in the SEO industry and continuing to learn about the underlying technologies which power the internet.
There’s no real goal or purpose to NickSamuel.com besides being an opportunity sharpen my skills and have a go at building my own website from scratch.
You can learn a bit more about me from my FAQs page!
I enjoy the technical aspects of SEO and you’d be more likely to catch me crawling and analysing a website’s performance rather than link building or putting together a content strategy.
If you work in “Search” long enough it’s impossible not to gain a well-rounded skill set over time as you’re constantly exposed to many different areas as the influence and scope of SEO grows.
Right now, I am a Venn diagram of classic SEO chops, basic web development skills, and marketing knowledge (which I have a degree in).
In no particular order my five favourite areas to work in are:
- Anything SEO
- Site Speed Optimisation
- Technical SEO
- Web Development
In terms of SEO and Digital Marketing companies I’ve worked for, the ones below are probably the most well known:
- Havas Media – Starting soon
- Optus Digital
