Hi, I’m Calvin Ke. I am an SEO and digital marketer based out of Charlotte, North Carolina. I am currently an SEO manager at Wanderu, a travel aggregator that makes it easy to find the best deals on bus and train tickets. Previously I managed SEO at CreditCards.com, a leading website in the finance vertical. It’s been a few short years since I entered the world of search engine optimization, but luckily I’ve had the chance to compete and rank on some highly competitive tranches of keywords while helping to build awesome websites. I’ve also been fortunate enough to work with some amazing folks who have helped me grow as an SEO at an accelerated pace.
That said, I still have much to learn about SEO, digital marketing, and web development. That’s partially why I decided to create this personal website (the other main reason is to have a place to store my lengthy rants about various topics). Everything I know about search engine optimization right now is only the tip of the iceberg. This site in its current form is more or less of a placeholder, but I look forward to using it as a sandbox to experiment and delve into web development. I want to be honest with myself about my knowledge gaps and “blind spots”; hopefully this will be a nice leisure project I can work on every now and then to try out new things and fill in the gaps.
Please feel free to contact me via Twitter or LinkedIn. Hit me up if you ever find yourself in the Charlotte area; I’d be happy to catch up over lunch or coffee (well, I don’t actually drink coffee so it’d probably be me staring at you drinking coffee; maybe I could get like a bubble tea or something—if you’re also not a coffee drinker then we could both get bubble tea or something).
