SEO Consultant Toronto
Hi I’m Shivani Karwal, an SEO Consultant based in Toronto, Canada. I have over 8 years of SEO experience through my work with marketing agencies, as an in-house SEO Manager, freelance SEO consultant and SEO Trainer. I have a Masters in Business Administration (Marketing) and a Bachelors of Commerce (Accountancy) degrees and I am Google and Hubspot certified with the Google Analytics and Google AdWords certifications.
I ventured into the SEO world looking to increase the readership and improve rankings of a personal blog and haven’t looked back since. I scoured the Internet for SEO articles and read everything I could find and started applying the strategies I was learning. With less than 70 articles, my blog was able to reach over 300,000 unique visitors! This was through high quality content marketing and on-page SEO.
I started off being self-taught and then decided to move to the professional side. Post graduating, I went on to complete two SEO internships, one of which was with a leading Toronto based marketing agency. Upon completing the internship, I was hired full time for off-site SEO as a Link Building Specialist wherein I built high quality editorial links for clients to improve and build up their backlink profiles and bring in referral traffic. While at the agency, I also created SEO tutorials for their YouTube channel, a few of which went viral. It was at that time I realized I could not only just do SEO but also had the gift of teaching it. I then started holding training seminars teaching SEO and covering other topics as well such as Google Analytics. I trained interns at the agency I was working for as well and soon went on to become the Link Building Team Leader, heading and training a team of SEO newbies on the application of link building strategies. I then went on to work at a number of other Toronto based marketing agencies taking on SEO Specialist roles and moving on to Senior SEO Specialist.
The marketing agency life taught me a lot about SEO and it’s where I was able to apply all sorts of strategies and work on clients of all sizes and from various industries. I then decided to gain new experiences by moving from the agency life and taking on roles with companies as their in-house SEO Manager. Through one of my roles I was able to increase the SEO traffic by 47% in just 5 months. Some of the SEO Manager roles I landed were at my dream companies such as Rogers and Fido. I held numerous training sessions there as well training various teams on SEO including the content writers, development team, design, brand folks etc.
In 2016 I decided to utilize my SEO training skills further and started Digiologist, an eLearning platform providing SEO training through SEO video courses and books and recently published the 2018 SEO Handbook for Beginners. The course and book cover various topics in detail such as keyword research, technical on-site SEO, site structure, improving crawling ad indexation, creating and implementing a content strategy, on-page SEO, link building techniques, local SEO and more.
Over the past 8 years I’ve worked on over 100 projects for numerous clients of all sizes and industries and can help you too! I provide all SEO services including but not limited to keyword research, content marketing, technical on-site, link building, local SEO and more.
