Recently I have been interested in Hadoop and “big data,” so I took all the Cloudera training that was available. I am still very interested in doing SEO, though.
I’m happy to try to answer any questions about technical SEO or Hadoop or “big data” in general. Most of my time is taken up with my current job, but I am available for engagements if you are interested in hiring me. I find that most questions can be answered with a quick conversation and a few pointers, though.
I have some ideas about how Hadoop and big data technology could be used to improve SEO by providing insights into crawler and user behavior, and it would be great to find a position where I could explore those ideas.
Previously, I was the Director of Technical Projects at Nine By Blue, where I developed tools and helped on-line businesses develop search traffic acquisition strategies from both a technical and a content-oriented point of view.
Most of my time working in SEO was spent working on projects for clients, but I also wrote a monthly article on Technical SEO for Search Engine Land and spoke at conferences from time to time.
Before Nine By Blue, I worked at Google for six years in the AdWords direct sales engineering team helping Google’s largest advertisers understand and implement Google technology like Google Webmaster Tools, Google Analytics, AdWords API, and YouTube’s APIs.
I also managed the beta programs and support department for Google’s Enterprise division, where I became intimately familiar with Google’s search technology.
I’ve been working with search engines in one form or another since 1994 at companies such as Inktomi and Verity (now Autonomy).
I have a BS in Electrical Engineering with a focus on Signals and Systems from Purdue University, and I currently live in Palo Alto, California.
