Hi, I'm Alec

SEO consultant. Coffee addict. Craftsman of terrible code.

Things I do

I do what I love.
Some of these projects are my main focus to pay the bills; others are hobbies or moonlighting projects which eventually became standalone businesses.

Allotment Digital

A digital marketing agency with a strong focus on ecommerce SEO. We have helped several of the UK’s biggest retail brands improve their organic visibility.

Image Raider

Enterprise-level reverse image search. Image Raider helps photographers, IP lawyers, and marketers to track who is using their images. At its peak, Image Raider had 300,000 monthly users.

I built and ran Image Raider for its first three years. Image Raider was acquired by a technology firm in November 2015.


A service for identifying, verifying, and tracking photographic copyright infringements.


Years of talking about and teaching SEO has culminated in an encyclopedia full of decks and ideas.


A specialist travel affiliate site which makes money through discount codes and cashback.


I’ve built more tools than I can remember. Mostly these help me to do my work a little more efficiently, sometimes they make it into the wild.

Google Certified

Things I’ve written here and elsewhere. Search, and marketing, and other things that pique my interest.
