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 nine 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.
