Avatar for Clint Butler

As an Army veteran, 21 years in with three deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I learned real-world applications of problem-solving and adapting quickly to change. Looking for more challenges, I earned three Master’s degrees, Internet Marketing, and Business Intelligence and Public Relations. I also took up SEO in 2009 because nothing is more fluid and challenging in marketing then optimizing for search. Since then I’ve earned a reputation as the expert in on page optimization and page speed. I’ve spoken during several online training events, host two podcasts on SEO, and am a Speaker at SEO conferences like SEO Rockstars and SEO Spring Training.
