The Matt Hamilton Story

Matt worked for a nominally well known SEO agency in Cape Town for 6 months prior to going it alone – a response to what he regarded as under-servicing of client needs & a less than stellar monthly remuneration package of less than £200 per month. So with little more than extreme believe in his own ability; no computer; no internet connection & a freshly printed restraint of trade agreement Matt set about creating his own SEO consultancy. Clients flocked to Matt despite the limitations of having to literally live in a 24 hour internet cafe for 6 months – where he’d go hungry in order to pay for internet access to start with.

Matt’s first mega-success came with a luxury travel vendor for whom he achieved no fewer than 650 Google Top 10 rankings in the American marketplace for five star hotel and accommodation names, brands & generic terms. The client ended up ranking higher for [hotel name] than many of the official hotel websites themselves.

Q & A’s

Q: Do you speak English?
A: I’m an English first language speaker – South Africa was of course settled by the British & the Dutch in the 1600’s – my direct lineage stems from the post-World War 2 influx of British farmers & settlers to Rhodesia – Scottish on the Mother’s side & English/Welsh on the Sperm Donor’s side. I’m proficient in the English language to the point of being published in TIME Magazine (English language version). My spoken English is sometimes mistaken for one of Australian, New Zealander, Canadian or American.
Q: Are you permanently based in the United Kingdom?
A: Yes I am – have an English wife, two English cats & a permanent English home to prove it too.
Q: Are you available to advise me in a one off basis?
A: Yes. Subject to availability I am able to provide once off advice to online entrepreneurs about search and search marketing.
Q: Do you offer Non-Disclosure Agreements to clients?
A: Yes, I offer all clients Non-Disclosure Agreements.
Q: Do you guarantee improvements in rankings, traffic or revenue?
A: No. And you should be very suspicious of anyone who does. I can only guarantee that better compliance with search engine guidelines and a stronger inbound link authority should lead to gains across all metrics.
Q: What is the fastest you have got a site to #1?
A: 36 hours.
