My name is Matthew Hamilton & for the last 12 years I have lived and breathed search engines and organic search engine optimisation. I have performed SEO work on behalf of clients in the United Kingdom, USA, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, Canada, Thailand & 20 other countries around the world.

  • Home repair and renovation services including SEO for plumbers, electricians, commercial electrical, boiler repairs, heating engineers, drainage specialists & loft conversions.

I have also acted as an advisor in the field of digital investments with a special focus on search engines and search engine traffic.
