About ShivarWeb!

Thanks for taking a second to try to learn what and who is behind ShivarWeb – and why on earth should you care what we have to say.

About The Website

ShivarWeb is about helping DIYers, freelancers & small businesses build better websites & do more effective marketing.

We focus on finding the signal within all the noise, chatter, hype, complexity and (unfortunately) charlatanism in web development & digital marketing. And then creating the quality useful resources that we want to see exist in the world.

You’ll find long-form tutorials, opinion pieces, deep-dive guides, product reviews & more. Our topics range from SEO to Paid Advertising to Analytics to the mechanics of building websites to behind the scenes tips, tactics & tools that will make your business more effective.

The most regular content we publish is a weekly newsletter. It’s not the typical “newsletter” that’s just an announcement of new posts.

Nope – it’s a multi-hour curation of all the best marketing articles from around the entire Web into just 4 must-read links with 4 short takeaways. It will save you tons of time while still keeping you on the cutting edge of digital marketing.

You should sign up here – more signal and less noise for you.

About The Publisher – Nate Shivar

Digital Marketing ConsultantBack in 2010, I started freelance SEO, marketing, consulting, and some web design. I ran this site for lead-generation and sales. I then worked for an interactive agency in Atlanta until 2015.

Now, I work as a digital marketing consultant in addition to building, owning, and operating publishing brands – including ShivarWeb where I’m the primary author and sole editor/publisher.

I’m proudly based in the heart of Atlanta, GA. You can read more about me personally over at NateShivar.com/about but professionally, I’m certified in Google Analytics and AdWords; certified by Distilled in SEO; work in the SEO industry; used to freelance in everything from web design to SEO to AdWords; I’m a huge fan of WordPress – and solid web platforms in general.

I’ve either built, run or consulted on nearly every type of site there is – from ecommerce to affiliate to membership to enterprise to local and more. I’ve been experimenting and exploring the Web since 1996 when I first opened up my Netscape browser. I used to compare the results between HotBot, Altavista, and Lycos. And started my first website on GeoCities before I moved on to Homestead.

You can follow me on Twitter here.

Preferably – you would just sign up for the newsletter, though 😉

Also! If you want even more marketing content from me, I co-host the Bamboo Chalupa digital marketing podcast bi-weekly with Brett Snyder. It’s the marketing podcast I wish had existed in the world before we started it. Check it out on iTunes here.
