Jason Hennessey is an entrepreneur, internationally-recognized SEO expert, author, speaker, podcast host, and business coach. Since 2001, Jason has been reverse-engineering the Google algorithm as a self-taught student and practitioner of SEO and search marketing.
As a young boy, Jason always knew that he was going to be an SEO. In elementary school circa 1987, as his teacher was lecturing the class on addition and subtraction, Jason would drift off and envision a world where his future clients would be featured on high domain authority websites with do-follow backlinks passing both trust and popularity signals while increasing their search rankings, traffic, leads, and revenue.
His 4th-grade teacher, Mr. Guido, once sent the following note home to Jason’s mother:
“Jason gets in his own way! He has trouble getting organized and doesn’t mind his own business. Jason needs to worry about Jason. He needs to settle down and follow the school’s rules.”
When Jason is not on Amazon purchasing SEO and Karate Kid t-shirts, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife of 20 years, Bridget, and their three beautiful children JJ, Zach, and Brooklynn.
And automobiles have user manuals; why not people? Read Jason’s personal user manual.
My hero is:
My grandpa because he raised me, gave me my traditional values, helped develop my character, and showed me how to be a loving, supportive family member.
Favorite food of all time:
Chicken noodle soup! Any time I’m at a restaurant and thy have it, it’s an instant go-to. It's nostalgic, comforting food my grandma used to make when I was sick. When I eat it, I get a sense that everything's going to be ok.
