About Cyrus Shepard
SEO changed my life, and I love giving back to the community that made it possible.
I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the best SEOs in the world. I’ve also had the privilege to work with top companies to solve SEO challenges both large and small.
After moving to Seattle, I picked up a book about learning HTML. Soon after I built my first student website and ever since I’ve been in love with online marketing. I soon found myself the website manager for a major wholesale distributor in Seattle, and in 2010 joined the staff of SEOmoz.
The thing I enjoy most about this community is the sharing of information. Never have I witnessed an industry so focused on helping each other succeed.
SEO should be easy. I believe 90% of search success is achieved with:
- Search Engine Optimization basics
- Amazing content – above the fold
- Pure creative genius ;)
Most companies today haven’t realized the full potential of search as a marketing strategy. It’s still the Wild West and opportunities are everywhere for savvy marketers. My goal is to help shape that industry.
My most recent gig was the SEO & Web Strategist for SEOmoz, which as far as I am concerned is the number one SEO company on the face of the earth. Today I spend my time building website properties that people will love, SEO consulting, and expanding my fledgling coding skills.
