Frequently asked questions

What type of experience do you have in International markets?
I am an international SEO consultant with 5+ years’ experience specializing in Australia, USA, UK and Sri Lankan markets. I understand how the main search engines like Google behave in those countries and what needs to be prioritized when providing a solution to a client. Hence, I am able to give a customized solution that suits each individual clients' needs.

Do you do white-label projects for agencies or other digital professionals?
Yes, I do work on white-label projects, where I will maintain full confidentiality and work as a consultant for those agencies. Currently I work with a few agencies in Australia and Singapore under white-label contracts.

Do you also work with clients that are based outside Sri Lanka and Australia?
Yes I do work with global clientele. However I do not work on projects targeting Baidu and Yandex. I speak and correspond fluently in English, therefore there is no limitation when it comes to working with clients from around the globe.

What type of businesses do you work with?
I prefer medium to large scale projects, since small sized companies / start ups usually do not have the required budgets to afford SEO services. However if you do have the budget, I will be happy to help you.

What types of SEO clients do you normally specialize in?
Mainly I prefer working with E-commerce sites and corporates. I love to work on e-commerce projects that challenge me. Because of my background in the corporate sector, I prefer to work on corporate lead generation websites too.


Ishara’s SEO journey

Before 2009, Ishara was a web developer and designer by profession. In 2009 one of his clients asked him to do SEO for their website and at that time he simply applied what he knew, and did the project free of charge. This was the turning point in his life and career. By 2011 he had done a few SEO projects and he started as a full time SEO specialist in a local corporation which offered him the chance to work on both international and local SEO projects. The corporation was into mobile app development, hospitality and food & beverage. Thanks to this corporation, he got a chance to explore SEO in international markets such as Singapore and the USA.


In mid of 2012, he was offered a job opportunity at Virtusa, a NASDAQ listed multinational company based in the USA. He joined the Global Marketing Team at Virtusa and was the person responsible for the company’s Corporate website’s SEO and Digital Analytics, where he learned about international SEO tactics and techniques. At Virtusa he got international exposure by working with teams in the USA, UK, Singapore and India. He was responsible for International SEO strategy formulation, SEO roadmap creation, working with the development team, working with the content writing team and also to conduct SEO training for relevant stakeholders on the Virtusa global marketing team. This is where he found that he had a skill to provide SEO training based on the feedback he got from both local and overseas participants.


DreamDay Invitations is an online store based in New South Wales, Australia. In 2015 Ishara got a chance to join the NewBound Group and work on their DreamDay online store. Within six months he became the “ Head of SEO & Analytics” within the group and was looking after a team of 5 staff members, since the group had a few other e-commerce sites as well.


In November 2016 Ishara gave up working in the corporate world and started as a freelance Digital Marketing Consultant and from there onwards he started to work with local and overseas clients providing SEO solutions, and soon became a much sought after international SEO consultant. Industry-wise, he is specialized in E-Commerce and works as an Ecommerce SEO Consultant. He is able to provide custom-made SEO solutions to these businesses. Working with many overseas clients, he has honed his skills to match international standards and strictly maintains the same standards and ethics throughout.
