Huw Davies Cook

Your Experience

Huw Davies-Cooke has a first-class degree in Mechanical Engineering from Liverpool John Moores University. He has been a Technical SEO Strategist with Salience since 2022. Before this, he worked as a freelance SEO for 3 years.

Huw has worked on several campaigns including Carpetright, The Entertainer, and Patisserie Valerie. Plus, he has been a huge part of our award-winning Dreams Campaign.

Working on the Patisserie Valerie campaign his strategy achieved rank position 1 for ‘wedding cakes’ (49,500 search volume). With one of our flooring clients, Huw identified that 24% of products were unable to be sampled, leading to approximately 40% of all product views not being available for sampling due to a site malfunction. Unknown to the client, it was drastically affecting their conversions. His hard work and inquisitiveness made a fantastic improvement to the website and the client's goals.

Something You Are Proud Of

Although Huws primary focus is the technical health of a website and its ability for search engines to crawl and navigate, Huw is also very interested in client revenue growth. Through CRO and strategic thinking – you'll find him looking for exciting commercial opportunities. Outside of this, his work as a Technical SEO Strategist includes search indexation audits, core web vitals, site speed audits, site structure optimisations, mega navigation design, forecasting, CRO audits, competitor analysis and more.
