Who is Scott Gombar – SEO Expert?
I have been slaying the Google beast since 2001 when I worked with local musicians and businesses as part of an entertainment management company. A big part of what I did included getting the client’s website ranked on Google. At that time that involved keyword stuffing, link farms and directories, and yes, even MySpace.
In 2006 I launched TechsRUs. You see, my other career love is IT. In fact, I still provide IT services today through my Proactive IT business Nwaj Tech. In the mid-2010s I launched a full-service digital marketing agency. I learned within a few years I was not a big fan of social media marketing and some of the other parts of digital marketing. I decided to return to IT full time while still doing some SEO and Website design on the side.
Right before COVID-19 I partnered with a friend to open a new digital marketing agency (Rooftop Marketing Group) for Spanish-speaking service businesses. My role was to be primarily SEO and Website Design/Development. COVID-19 took its toll on this new business so we closed up shop in 2020.
I decided that I still love SEO and the challenge of helping small businesses rank on Google. The truth is you can compete on Google and other search engines, even if your competitor is a large organization with a big marketing budget. Enter The Search Ninja.
The focus of this business will be to offer guidance on SEO and Local Search (and maybe Google Ads). This can be for the DIY SEO, an agency that does not have SEO on staff, or just to make sure your SEO provider is doing its job.
