ey there and welcome to our About Us page! My name is Bradley Barks, and I’m from right here in the Greater Phoenix area. I was born and raised in Scottsdale, lived in Gilbert for about five years, and now stay near Old Town.
I’m the Founder & Lead Strategist here at #1 Phoenix SEO, and wanted to take some time to give you my back story, describe a few details about myself, and how that relates to you. I’ve been fascinated by technology for as far back as I can remember.
I started online during the dial-up modem era, and have continued to progress and adapt as technology has advanced, gaining mountains of experience along the way. I’ve spearheaded many online communities, blogs, social media websites, and have sold many websites, e-commerce products, ad space, digital media and more. It’s been a blast, and the adventure continues!
Ever since the MySpace era of social media, I’ve been extremely passionate about effective organic search engine marketing.
It was during this time that I had a crash course in web design, user interfaces, and (most importantly) search engine optimization, while running a couple of MySpace layouts & graphics websites that were rather successful.
I learned the ins and outs of link building, on-page and off-page optimization, keyword research, content creation, and much more, out of pure necessity. Saying I cut my teeth would be a major understatement.
In the years since my humble beginnings, I’ve diversified and developed my search skills, have attended conferences and online trainings, pride myself on continuing to test, track, and analyze real time results, and have kept a finger on the pulse of the industry. It’s no easy task with all of the algorithm updates, trials, and tribulations, but it’s absolutely vital to remaining at peak, optimal performance. Success leaves clues.
I’ve launched and ran successful internal projects, client websites, search campaigns, video marketing campaigns, social media, online reputation management, targeting local, national, global, and the list goes on. Between my team and myself, we’ve generated well over 25,000,000 unique visitors and counting in all kinds of markets, as well as millions of video and media views. Finance, real estate, law, health, acupuncture, fitness, supplements, electronics, e-commerce, software, property management, and on.
