This was my first self-chosen creation using React and Axios.  The “Full-CRUD” site hits an external API to pull in a random quote which can then be saved, edited, retrieved or deleted.

Another online app coded in React/Redux. When our class at DevMountain was asked to submit ideas for group projects, most of us submitted one or none. I submitted six!  The BiPolar News concept was the most-popular of the six. This photo is of the Intro page, which gives a good, brief description of the site.  This is what the site looked like after one and a half weeks of effort by our 4-person team. Because two of our team were very...

Another long-term client has been CSB Nutrition.  Here’s an archived shot of their original website before I came along: Nice, eh?  Well, after they saw so much success (in spite of their website) they ended up moving their operations into a much larger building in nearby Spanish Fork, Utah.  Here’s the first website I built for them (click to enlarge): A few years later, in 2015, the owner ran across his...

Emily Bouchard, of Blended-Families.com, was my third customer back when I went full-time in SEO and web development in 2003. We met at an entrepreneur’s boot camp in LA.  I built her initial site from a simple template and coded all the content myself in HTML/CSS. Through my SEO efforts, I was able to get her site into the top 10 Google search results, and keep her there, for years.  Over the years, I served as her on-demand...

In early 2015, I rebuilt ProvoDiamonds.com. I had previously optimized the original site (built by someone else) for various related phrases and it was ranking well. Converting the site from a plain HTML site to WordPress was a challenge in that preserving the rankings requires particular expertise. After doing further keyword research, it was determined that the target phrase “engagement rings Provo”, for which the...

Although he’s now asking me to revamp his site, the president of Summit Nutritional has been pleased with the basic WordPress site I built for his company years back. The really fun/challenging part was figuring out a way for his customers to fill out, print and/or submit a sample submission order form.  Decided to go with creating a custom PDF form that can do all three. Oh, and by the way, it ranks #1 in Google’s natural...

Often my professional web development projects were the results of a client wanting to get found in the Google search results.  Diane’s Wig Shop was one great example.  Diane had the oldest wig shop in Utah County but noticed how the wig shops belonging to her former employees were ranking higher on Google.  So, she called me. After doing extensive keyword research, I determined that her best chance of doing well on Google would...

Here’s a cutting-edge-looking site (for 2010) I enjoyed building for Mountainland Realty.  You’ll have to decide for yourself which looks better, this site, or their current one, built by someone...

I’ve made dozens of promotional videos for my clients over the years. I’ll add some here as I’m able to get to it. ReallyCreepyStories.com MedicalCodingTraining.com Although these vids look particularly out-of-date today, they were certainly effective at bringing loads of YouTube traffic to my client’s website. Of the 7 videos I created to bring them traffic, all seven came up in the top 20 search results for...

It was particularly rewarding to help small businesses to gain more business prosper. This was partially achieved by increasing their rankings, and therefore traffic, on Google’s search engine rankings. Ranking well for two-word search terms is no easy task.  OffenderCorrections.com was ranking #8 on Google for its primary targeted phrase, “offender corrections” when I came on the scene.  Within a few months, I had...

Enjoyed “webmastering” for mystery romance author Alene Roberts for several years. She and her husband were favorite acquaintances of our family when I was growing up in Texas. My first task for Alene was to convert her simple HTML site into a WordPress site. The original idea was to simplify updating the site so she could add new books herself.  Turns out they just relied on me to add photos and descriptions of her new...
