About Scott McGinn

Scott McGinn

Hello reader.

I am a Toronto-based SEO specialist and content writer with a specialty in content and digital marketing.

Rather than giving you the reader a dry biography better suited for a resume, let’s get real.

I’m originally from a coastal farm town in County Wicklow on the east coast of Ireland.

Traveling around Europe, living in San Diego for a short period, and currently residing in Toronto, the journey continues onwards.

I find the intricacy of search engines fascinating, the convergence of human curiosity and instantaneous information.  

Take a second and think.

How much of your online usage involves searching?

How did you make your last online purchase?

Do you ever pass the first page of results? 

Do you find content through keywords?

That’s why I do what I do.
