Dave Currier

SEO Manager, Senior Developer, ca. '12

Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

Luke 14:11

They don’t call him “SEO Dave” for nothing. As the brains behind SEO strategy for Vital’s extensive client roster, Dave possesses an uncanny ability to stay on top of the ever-changing, increasingly technical field of organic search engine optimization. With 18 years of SEO experience, he also holds numerous certifications, including Google Ads Search, Google Ads Shopping, Google Ads Video, Google Analytics, and HubSpot Inbound. As if that weren’t enough, Dave knows his way around every major website development platform and content management system out there, and he can talk digital marketing strategy with the best of them.

Prior to joining the Vital team, Dave was an SEO specialist and web developer at a leading search agency, and he even ran his own shop for a while. He’s so well-known in the SEO world, the legendary Rand Fishkin once name-dropped him while on stage.

Dave studied web design and interactive media at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. When he’s not working, he’s probably studying ancient history, taking care of his growing menagerie of farm animals, or divesting himself of most of his worldly belongings.
