Understanding Google's Search Algorithms

Hi! I’m Marie Haynes. I’m an expert on Google’s search algorithms. I used to be a veterinarian. In 2008 I created my first website and learned how to get it to rank on Google search.

In 2012 an obsession over understanding Google’s Penguin Algorithm, lead me to pursue SEO as a full time career. Since then I’ve had such a cool career. I’ve travelled around the world to speak at conferences and help site owners improve in ways that Google’s algorithms will reward. My agency has helped hundreds of businesses. Through my podcast and newsletter I have been able to help thousands improve their site quality and win more search presence.
