Jim Hedger, 49 years old, has worked as a SEO for about 20 years now. Jim to me symbolizes kindness, he is simply a kind and generous man. He cohosts the Webcology podcast, giving webmasters and SEO advice on a regular basis there. He is extremely active on social media, offering not just valuable SEO tips but also encouragement and mentorship to many.
Based in Toronto, Jim Hedger has been one of those individuals that doesn’t sit idly by. He has written at many publications, some of which are no longer around today. He jumps at opportunity to educate, for free, the younger and less informed SEO industry.
Melissa Fach from SEO Aware nominated Jim, she wrote:

I was a new SEO. I read everything and started blogging and tried to prove I knew my stuff. One day Jim calls me and asks me if he can publish my post on Site Pro News. I was so excited! It helped me out a lot. At my first conference he introduced me to a lot of folks. If it wasn’t for Jim I don’t know where I would be. I love the guy 🙂

Jim is simply a good, smart and caring man.

Favorite thing about the SEO community? My favourite thing about the SEO community is the community itself. We’re always willing and eager to help each other and lifelong friendships have formed through it.
One piece of advice to the SEOs out there? First rule, do no harm to a client’s site. If you’re not sure of the outcome, don’t do it.
Favorite things in general? I like green. All things green. From environmental activism to the pursuit of instant happiness, I love all things green.
What you want to be known for in the SEO space? My writing, Webcology.. Ultimately for helping others and perhaps for pioneering parts of it. Wow. I have no idea. Lots of stuff I guess but I never really kept track of it. I’d bet some of it’s just over to the left… No, the other left. Yeah, there.
You can learn more about Jim at his web site, on LinkedIn and on his show Webcology.
