Searching For Search

SEOs are the rarest beasts around

The thing about SEO is that approximately 60% of SEOs are no good at SEO. An optimised H1 tag does not a business strategy make. The very best SEOs are relentless drivers of continual improvement. They have roadmaps, they have crawls going on 24 hours a day, they have a constant eye on ROI and proving their worth.

Our founder, Gareth, started doing SEO – like most SEOs – by accident. It was only just before Google got into the game, so optimising for Yahoo and Altavista was fun – if a little easy.

What search engines do is constantly evolve. They’re always fighting against the 60% of bad SEOs and the 10% of evil SEOs who spam in the battle for supremacy in a zero-sum game of search engine rankings.

We look for commercial SEOs. Those who can optimise a crawl budget, reduce page load speed, build a high-performing landing page that search engines consume in a split second and rank because users love it. They’re both creative and analytical, they’re focused on ROI, not vanity metrics, and they do actually exist. We know them.

Our
Process

When you work with Example, you get access to our little black book of SEOs. We’ll understand your brief & your growth plans, and reach out to the people we think will make the biggest difference – whether they’re seeking work or not. We’ll pitch them, manage the interview process & hopefully help you with the negotiation & offer process.

Screened
Candidates

When we talk about screening, we’re not just talking about a five-minute interview. We probe their experience, their motivations, their ambitions and we only ever send the candidates we feel will make the biggest difference – and that will be excited by the prospect of working with you.
