Hello and welcome to my website.

This is the online resume and personal website of Matthew John Wood.

My key expertise lies in Search Marketing. I have worked in this field for over 10 years, developing a strong skillset in SEO, Paid Search (PPC), Paid Social and CRO channels.

My experience of building and growing websites dates back longer than that. I started working on independent projects around 2005. This foundation of knowledge led to scaling up a website from nothing to 1 million page views a month.

Away from building, marketing and creating content, I enjoy an active lifestyle that involves keeping fit in the gym, playing football, walking and cycling.
