Strategic SEO and Web Marketing Consultant at ItaliaSEO in Valencia, Spain (Karma: 1,987)

Professional Bio

I am an SEO and Web Marketing Strategist, and I operate in the Italian, Spanish and English speaking countries market.

In my 40s right now, I am not the classic SEO who may claim to be in the industry since even before the invention of Google.
To tell the naked truth, neither in my geekest dreams I was imagining that one day he would practice or even talk and write about SEO; not at all.
In fact I was working in the Entertainment industry in Italy, as Head of Programming for thematic Movie Channels in the D+ Digital Pay TV platform.

But life is unpredictable and in 2003, due to a totally unexpected twist of Fate, I was put in charge of the Web Department of the company I was working at the moment.
Since then I evolved from Web Project Manager to the actual SEO and Web Marketing Consultant position.

As a freelance and independent consultant, I has worked with Clients of every kind: from small to medium local businesses, Top 500 companies and startups.

I also work regularly as independent consultant with bigger international SEO agencies (sometimes as white label, sometimes not).

Active member of the SEO community, I a a SEOmoz Associate and State of Search blogger, I speak regularly on different marketing and search events (in three languages), offer in-company training sessions and speaking and I am occasionally contracted as Expert to give master classes in universities.

Where I Write

In my blog, on SEOmoz, State of Search and in your blog, if you ask me and if I like it :)

    Citing Dan Barker: What if "Ello" was simply a clever ploy to collect all the email addresses of early adopters? For once I don't feel the need to be an early adopter :)

    I don't agree about that Google "classify" you just for a single set of topic related to Authorships. Authorship is not attached just on your blog posts, but also on G+ posts (or also your YouTube vid…

    Just to be clear... Google doesn't penalize you because you link with an exact match anchor text. It does it if that link is followed, pass PageRank and, therefore, alters the algorithm. It's not a qu…

    I agree about the quality... And, yes, maybe guest posting should be meant as "I ask you to write a post for my blog" and not vice versa, or - if you want to offer the opportunity to others to submit …
