    Welcome our Newest Top Contributor: James Watt

    Here we GROW again! Local Search Team Expands!

    Our Newest Top Contributor is... drum roll...

    Have you had the pleasure of interacting with James yet? He's been on my radar for awhile now and since he became one of our most active members. I've been so impressed with his helpful attitude and detailed answers that I promoted him! So I'm happy to announce James is now one of our Local Search Top Contributors.

    I asked James to share a little about himself, so our members can get to know him better.


    About James

    James originally went to school for programming and physics, before getting into Adwords and website development in 2008 with Mix Marketing and Design. He got into the Local SEO game in 2011 to find new ways to help clients, and is currently in the process of starting his own business with his partner Sarah to focus exclusively on Local.

    He spends his free time with his partner and 5 year old boy exploring gardening and the local forests of Portland Oregon, or on the couch with a glass of wine and a book in German or Russian.

    I'm thrilled our members will get the benefit of James' time & Local Search insights.

    Please join me in welcoming James to the Local Search Team!

    Thanks guys for welcoming James!

    I had meant to mention, for those who weren't aware, that he's also really active and helpful over at the GMB forum. So helpful in fact that I recommended to Google a couple months ago they should add him as a Top Contributor there as well!

    Agreed Linda! James provides some great insights into actual problems people have. His comments stood out to me from my first day on this forum.

    Congrats James! Couldn't agree more with everything said here. Your contributions here and at GMB are always clear, concise, and thoughtful.

    Can you satisfy my curiosity and tell me about the chain that's dangling in your profile pic?

    Herlizch Wilkommen James and congratulations!

    As Joy said, it's great to see a photo and like Colan I'm curious about the chain in the background

    Look forward to your ongoing contributions here - they're always valuable and I learn a lot myself from them.
