My passion for SEO began with my very first project, a SEO project I did for Gjenvick Gjonvik Archives, a private family archive located in Atlanta Georgia and Trondheim Norway. I achieved over 1,000 rankings in the top 10 of major search engines as a result of my success with search engine optimization. It’s amazing that I achieved these rankings with no formal SEO training. After completing my first SEO project so successfully, I started thinking about becoming a SEO Specialist.
How to Become a SEO Specialist
In my first step, I read articles about the SEO profession. It was still in its infancy and there was no formal knowledge base or standards for practitioners. In June 2003, I decided to enroll in a course entitled Master Search Engine Optimization Competencies for Web Developers. After a few months, I decided to take another course. This time I selected the Academy of Web Specialists program offered by Robin Nobles. It included Essentials in Search Engine Marketing as well as Advanced Search Engine Marketing Training. After completing the first course, and receiving certification on search engine marketing strategies I decided to start my own SEO company.
Considerations to make before starting a SEO company
There are many preliminary steps that need to be taken, including a domain, the name of the business, the domain hosting, the website content, the website design, the keywords, the services you will offer, the pricing, the payment options and how the search engines can find your website.
The name is everything
After reviewing the search results of other SEO Services I found that nearly 500,000 websites were listed. Most of these sites already used the best names of SEO companies. Gjenvick.com is a simple and neat domain name. Fortunately, the last name I have is unique. Then I used Google and Wordtracker in order to find a name for my company that would attract traffic from search engines. The term Search Engine Optimization (SEO) was widely used, which meant that competition was fierce. After researching the term SEO I found a third more results, giving it a better chance of ranking in the top thirty search engine results. After doing some research, I chose the name Gjenvick SEO Services.
