We know what it takes to produce quality, high-ranking content after Google’s many recent algorithm updates. Search engines are getting smarter by the day, and getting your pages to the top positions and keeping them there for the long run takes much more than the cheap articles that can be found all over the web.
I’m Andrew Walsh and I’ve been a freelance writer since 2008. My recent projects have spanned diverse topics and I’m comfortable writing across a wide variety of tones and styles.
In addition to higher search engine rankings, my content is also the kind that generates discussion and gets shared on social media sites.
I have recently done feature writing, SEO copywriting, ghostwriting, autoresponders, about pages, editing, and social media profiles for clients. Below please find a few samples:
