More about me
I had the pleasure to be part of an interview about my background in SEO for the site sökmotoroptimering24.se (Swedish).
He is one of those people who have a long experience of SEO in Sweden and he has been in business for over 11 years. In this interview you get to know Robert a little better and know more about who he is and what he does.
What started your interest in search engine optimization?
I started out with SEO as a sales rep back in 2001 and from being merely a product, it became a great passion :).
What is your background like? Technical interest?
I started as I said, as a sales rep in 2001 and actually got a call about employment, while the second plane crashed into the second twin tower. It’s something i always will remember. My background is from sales, customer service and project management.
I have learned the technical part of SEO, and I feel that I’m constantly learning new things. One of my greater experience was working with a developing team for a startup company in Sri Lanka, E-commerce manager, and also as a owner and operator of an gambling site.
What is your SEO principle?
SEO is a marathon, not a sprint.
What are you most known for?
Maybe that i am a hardcore fan of the club Djurgården? I do not know, there are some who know that I have extensive experience in SEO.
How do you do to keep you up to date with SEO and Google?
blogs, forums, and conversations in social networks. It is also important to test things in this business.
What are your daily routine?
I usually begin to look at my favorite sites Search Engine land and Search Engine Watch, twitter and the G + stream about different topics. There are also various analyzes of keywords, website structure, content, social and links. Strategies and sales are also things that are dear to my heart.
Tips for beginners in SEO
What should they focus on in the beginning?
Learn the basics and understand the different parts. Start your own site and / or start working with customers to understand how everything works. Create accounts on various SEO forums and bookmarks for important sites.
What is your favorite SEO tool and why?
I have two favorite tools and one is SEOMoz because it is simple and a complete tool in my view, SearchMetrics is another tool that I like. I am also looking into SEOlytics which has some great features.
If you could create your own seotool, what would that be?
I’ve actually thought about this for a long time and I feel like I have tested most of the SEO tools over the years. Who wants to develop it with me :).
Who do you think is a good role model or a source of knowledge, when it comes to SEO ?
Rand Fishkin, no doubt, and lately it’s @ bill_slawski who is a talented guy who writes a lot about Google’s various patents and how it might affect SEO. In Sweden I like Sara Andersson at Search Integration. There are many talented people in Sweden and world-wide, and they all contribute in their own way.
What are your personal goals in 2012?
I am a partner in the startup firm iGoMoon and it will focus on that project and continue to build my personal brand.
What do you think the future holds for SEO? How do you think Google will evolve in the near future?
SEO is changing, but SEO is not dead, and SEO will continue to be the backbone for websites. The world’s largest search engine adds more and more focus on their own social networking Google + , and for me it would be strange if not social signals would be a strong ranking factor in the future. It’s just a matter of time. It is increasingly important to focus on quality vs. quantity .
What do you do in your spare time?
I spend time with my family, read books, play soccer and cheer for Djurgården!

SEO is a marathon, not a sprint.
