Josh Bachynski

This is part of the say something nice about an SEO/SEM series - feel free to nominate someone over here.

Josh Bachynski is 43 years old, lives in Victoria BC, Canada with his beautiful wife Melissa who is also a social media guru. Josh has one of the more vocal SEOs on the darker side of the SEO community. While Josh and I have not always seen eye to eye on specific topics, there is no doubt in my mind, that Josh deeply cares and believes in what he is pushing for.

Josh spends a tremendous amount of his time, resources and money pushing out content to help those in the SEO community. He publishes content and video constantly, he is always on social media sharing and is very active trying to get answers to questions that some might not be even thinking about.

He is a very big Google skeptic and has honestly rubbed some folks in the community the wrong way - but again, this is important, I honestly believe he does it because he cares and wants the industry to see things like they do not see them today. If you agree with Josh or not, that is not the point, no one can argue that he isn't passionate and caring about the community and industry.

Simon Kensington-Fellows nominated Josh and wrote:

I have been following Josh Bachynski for over a year now and have found his no nonsense data driven approach to SEO so refreshing. Whilst many other industry specialists follow Google's mantra, Josh is actually testing it, scientifically proving or disproving many SEO myths. Josh's weekly SEO Show 'Whitw Hat vs Black Hat' is the most informative, interesting and interactive show on the web. He gives so freely of his time and expertise that he really deserves a 'pat on the back'.

Favorite thing about the SEM community? At the end of the day we can all drink a beer and hash it out.

One piece of advice to the SEMs out there? SEO is getting harder! Anyone who says otherwise just doesn't do the research.

I strongly recommend SEOs get on to a scientific SEO testing community like my White Hat vs Black Hat SEO Testing group to find the REAL ranking factors.

The results might shock you!

Favorite things in general? Test Google. Rank sites. Practice martial arts.

What you want to be known for in the SEM space? I already am.
