SEO Manager, Senior Developer, ca. '12
“Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
They don’t call him “SEO Dave” for nothing. We’re not saying he knows what Google’s next algorithm update will be, but he does possess an uncanny ability to stay on top of the ever-changing, increasingly technical field of organic search, so Vital’s clients get found online by their ideal audiences. As if that weren’t enough, Dave knows his way around every major website development platform and content management system out there, and he can talk digital marketing strategy with the best of them.
Prior to joining the Vital team, Dave was an SEO specialist and web developer at a leading search agency, and he even ran his own shop for a while. Also, SEO legend Rand Fishkin once name-dropped him from stage.
Dave studied web design and interactive media at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and when he’s not working, he’s probably studying ancient history, taking care of his growing menagerie of farm animals, or divesting himself of most of his worldly belongings.
