Spotlighting the People Who are Shaping the Industry

Welcome to “The History of SEO (Search Engine Optimization).” History is about people, places, and time. Our mission: is to introduce you to the pioneers, practitioners, and the timeline surrounding their activity in the world of SEO through in-depth, yet personal, interviews.

From what we can tell, SEO got started about 1995, so the industry is still young. There have been a few pinnacles and the road ahead is fast moving and full of passing lanes, road signs, and potholes. We hope that this site can be a road map helping you understand the industry’s unique growth and the people who have made a difference.

More interviews are on their way, so let us know whether there’s someone who you want to hear from who has not yet been included. Or, if you have been active in the SEO community and would like to be considered for an interview, please contact us at interview@thehistoryofseo.com.

As a final note, there are many nice people in the SEO community, and they are fun to work with—and party with.
