The roots of my search engine optimization and conversion business date back to 1995 when I got involved in the worldwide web at the International University of Japan during my university days. However, I had started my love of all things computers back in 1989 by taking a short course on computers and Artificial Intelligence in Islamabad, Pakistan.
As time went on, I started playing with MS DOS, Fox Pro before getting admission to the university in Japan. There, I developed a keen interest in FrontPage (the very first version) playing with HTML, Frontpage and Photoshop during the first half of 1996 to make my first ever website by using raw HTML and Front Page.
During those ancient days of Internet, we would talk among friends about hits and the number of visitors/repeat visitors but not in detail. We would also submit our sites to various search engines to getting higher rankings. And, believe it or not, it was fairly simple to get to the top with say, Altavista, Lycos, Infoseek etc. back then. I also actively became involved in the site submission issues with various search engines of the time and started piling up my knowledge of site ranking, web analytics and e-marketing issues at that time.
In 2001, while working with Isle Inc. a web hosting company and now a subsidiary of Global Media Online, Japan I successfully negotiated a business deal with the then famous web analytics firm, Urchin, now known as Google Analytics. A familiar name?
In 2005, after leaving my previous employer in Tokyo, I started my own small SEO and web design companyHitech Solutions Inc. in Tokyo which has served clients big and small all over Japan. Recently, I have started blogging on www.roimatters.com Please feel free to visit the website if you are interested in knowing more about what I do.

Free Daily SEO Tips
Many people who get our free tools also sign up to get our free 7-days to SEO success series. This originally started out as a 7-part series, and over the years we have added about a dozen bonus tips covering a wide array of related business topics. We sorta started out as SEOs who learned a boatload about business and human nature in the process.
Day 9 is the one in the series I am most proud of, but we get a lot of feedback from readers who have different ones as their favorites, which helps inspire us to share more. If you ever miss a day, you can use the navigation in the lower right of the daily tips to catch up (or get ahead). And here is the overview page, which lists the entire series. Hopefully sharing that link didn't kill anticipation. ;)
Welcome aboard and here is to wishing you the luck and the hard work needed to dominate Google and your market!
