What makes an SEO expert?

seo experts- 5 gold stars for expertise

Often it can be hard to define what actually makes an ‘expert’. While there is no set criteria, something they all have in common is experience. Their knowledge needs to be solid and backed up with qualifications and industry experience. It’s a given that an expert needs to understand SEO fundamentals, but they also need to build their personal skills, such as communication and teamwork.

As an expert, they must know how to look at a site and see any potential opportunities for optimisation. Having a high level of expertise opens up many career opportunities, and while being labelled an ‘expert’ is a grey area, we certainly know that these people listed below are.
