Michael Cottam’s deep technology experience — programming for IBM, STEP Technology and ProCom — makes him a unique search engine optimization (SEO) expert. He consults specifically for larger organizations that pull their website content from internal databases or content management systems (CMS). Rather than simply editing what already exists within a website, Michael offers tweaks to the organization’s internal CMS to increase SEO — bridging the gap between online marketing and website architecture teams.
In between his programming and SEO careers, Michael launched TheBigDay.com, a honeymoon registry and travel company. He is currently a member of the Rotary Club of Portland, frequently writes articles for industry websites and has created four mobile applications. This former motorcycle racer has a passion for collector cars and hobby aviation.
