Doc Sheldon retired from his business management consultancy in 2008 and became a perpetual student of all things SEO. He joined Level343 in 2010 and has been a great asset and editor to our team of writers. He began providing professional web copy to a worldwide array of clients, and has been actively involved in SEO for over five years, and writing professionally for nearly forty.
He began writing professionally in the 1970s, and shifted to marketing in the 1980s. He also owned and published both weekly and monthly newspapers and magazines during the ’80s & 90s, before beginning his SEO studies in 2003.
Doc was a business management consultant from the mid 1990s through 2008, when he retired. However, an unforgiving economy soon convinced him to go back into business for himself, this time, working full-time in content strategy and copywriting for online clients.
Having begun his SEO studies in 2003, Doc now specializes in technical SEO, particularly as it pertains to development of the Semantic Web, as well as trying to figure out what changes may be upcoming from the search engines.
He writes on a variety of topics for several technical blogs and online magazines. He also serves as moderator or administrator on a number of SEO-oriented forums, and manages several topical blogs of his own, attempting to eliminate misinformation and promote an optimal user experience.Google+
