I’m Amy Toman, and I’ve been online for quite a while. I sent my first email back in 1987, and I remember when Netscape ruled the Web (in my case, starting in 1994).
I’ve worked in many corporate positions, and just prior to founding Pet Sitter SEO, I was at PetSittingOlogy learning website optimization and SEO. After leaving there, I founded Pet Sitter SEO and began work on more professional projects.
I’ve been very happily working with the pet sitter community since then, writing for Pet Sitters International and the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, and speaking to those groups and the Texas Pet Sitters Conference and the International Boarding and Pet Services Association. I’ve audited over 200 websites, and have edited about 100 websites on several platforms (WordPress, GoDaddy, SquareSpace, Wix, Weebly).
I love solving puzzles, so that’s why SEO is so interesting to me. Every change made by the search engines causes ripples throughout the world’s websites, and I have a great time optimizing each individual site to display their best qualities. Come along with me on my SEO journey; I’ll bring the cookies and cocoa!
