ABOUT BRETT.

A

As you’ve probably guessed already, my name is Brett and I’m quarter Italian, hence the unusual last name of Saltalamacchia. I tend to get asked if I speak Italian but I’m afraid not, and by no surprise, I’m hopeless when it comes to speaking to other languages!

I currently live in Bristol, I’m 25 and I have a dog named Tilly.

  • My favourite alcoholic beverage is cider.
  • My dog is a miniature dachshund and she’s called Tilly.
  • My favourite work day out is Brighton SEO.
  • My favourite holiday destination is Jamaica.
  • My childhood nickname was Salty.
  • My favourite part of SEO is implementing schema mark-up.

I’ve been in the SEO game for just over 7 years, I was lucky enough to find an opportunity as soon as I came out of college, and from there, my career developed.

Over the past two years, I have been working full-time as an SEO Specialist for an FTSE 100 financial services company in Bristol, prior to that, I worked within eCommerce for a company that’s known globally and has won a Queen’s Award for international trade. This involved optimising sites in German, Australian, and US markets – I hadn’t done any international SEO before, so this was a great learning exercise for me.

Before that (winding back 4 years) – I worked for an SEO agency for 2 years, where I was accountable for just over 20 separate sites, therefore, I’ve worked SEO in every niche you could imagine – everything from dentistry, to architecture, to window cleaning, to pubs, clubs, restaurants and even health organisations working on the surveillance of bovine tuberculosis. Yep, I sure have worked in every niche. The skills are transferable, so it’s a great way to learn more. This is my personal site to reach out to other like-minded SEO’s, so if you’re reading this, and you’re excited at the prospect that we have similar interests, let’s chat.
