chris billingham website designer swansea

My name is Chris Billingham. I started up ‘Page One Web Design’ in Swansea in 2008 to help individuals sell their goods and services online. I now provide website design & internet marketing services to clients in Swansea, Bridgend & Cardiff.

My main interests are Local SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and Internet Retailing. My former passion was surfing waves but these days its surfing the information sea to enhance website visibility.

I gained a Bsc (Hons) in Economics at Plymouth University in 1988. I gained a MA in Finance & Investment from Exeter University in 1990. I started my working life as a trainee accountant but later switched career by studying for an Msc Computer Science, at Swansea University in 1995.

This led to a lecturing post in IT at Bridgend College where specialized in teaching web design classes from 1996 to 2006.

Swimmer Ltd - Waterproof MP3 Players For Swimming To Music

In 2006 I left Bridgend College to start up my own online business Swimmer Ltd.

The website www.swimmer.co.uk sells waterproof MP3 players, cases and headphones for swimming to music. Its online growth has given me valuable experience maintaining top position for a number of keyword terms in the organic search results on Google

In 2010, I decided to focus on WordPress and Magento platforms for developing & updating websites. I believe that these platforms offer small businesses the most comprehensive up-to-date solutions for online growth, at the least cost.

These days my main interest is in keeping up to date with the best local SEO practices. Here is a list of resources that help me to do this…
