Meet Daniel Threlfall, Senior SEO Specialist

Daniel has an obsession with SEO, a nerdy fascination with search engine algorithms, and an unquenchable thirst for good coffee without cream and sugar.

Daniel stumbled into search engine optimization by pure accident. Maybe it was the strong coffee, or maybe just the sheer curiosity, but one day he found himself not only doing SEO, but writing about it, too. Daniel has experienced the evolution of SEO from its wild west days of keyword stuffing to its present maturity. Now, he thinks Matt Cutts memes are hilarious, and understands jokes about robots.txt.

When not geeking out over Penguin 3.0 prognostications, you can find him with his awesome family, roaming out-of-the-way places on the planet. The Ecuadorean Andes and the Malagasy coast hold particular attraction. The coffee there is extraordinary.
