Alex Harford started his career as a web designer and developer before sharing duties with PPC then becoming SEO Manager at the same publishing company. He became interested in SEO when a website he recoded doubled organic traffic overnight (still one of his greatest achievements).
Alex joined Salience as Technical SEO Manager in 2014, left for a career break and missed the place so much, he re-joined in 2017 as an SEO Consultant.
As well as client tasks and strategy, Alex focuses on product development, training, and mentorship.
