Seattle SEO Group – About Us
Officially formed in 2010, the Seattle SEO Network (or “SSN”, as we like to call it)came about to create an environment where internet advertising professionals can network with peers relevant to their industry and share contacts and ideas. SSN hosts a monthly SEO meetup on the second Tuesday of each month at Hale’s Ales in Fremont. Our founding purpose is to share SEO knowledge, network, and promote white-hat SEO techniques. Join us and help us impact the internet marketing industry and put the Puget Sound region on the SEO map!
SSN membership is open to anyone that is involved in online advertising whether it be through an advertising agency, creative agency, media buyer or publisher. Membership is FREE–just shoot us an email.
In addition to the monthly open-to-the-public event, SSN hosts a monthly invite-only meeting that is extended to SEOs only. Additionally, the SSN hosts a community outreach program that connects small, medium, and large business with Seattle’s top SEOs. For more details see our Events page or contact us.

After figuring out search engine marketing for his own company, Sliger began to offer his expertise to other small to medium business clients across the country. As lead SEO for ASEOPRO found in talking with clients that some of the basic concepts of search marketing were more easily explained by comparison, so he developed RankFixer as a means to compare detailed information on up to five websites at a time.
