Link Building Manager
: John Pim
I do have a bit of history with W2R even before I started working in the company. I remember a few years back, I think it was 2015 or 2016 when I first started with Mark and W2R on some link building stuff. After that Neil came into the picture and I pretty much worked with him for a while. Fast forward to 2020, I saw a post from Chaz that the company is looking for a link building manager and I decided to send Chaz a message and apply for the job. Since then, I now manage our link building department.
As far as SEO or Link Building is concerned, I got into this like 10 years ago. At first building my own sites and links. In 2015, I launched my own link building service and that is when I first started working with W2R also. The service grew kinda big and after 2 or 3 years I decided to rebrand and add a few more extra stuff to our services.But then life came into the picture and it hit me with some bad health issues and from there everything went downhill as my focus at that time was on my health and doing everything i need to do to get better. And in 2020 i think it was i started working at W2R as the link building manager.
How long have you worked with Web 20?
A year and half. I think it was October 2020 when I joined the team.
What does your job entail?
My job is to make sure our clients get the best links we have to offer. But some of the things I do are client support, managing the team, doing quality checks on links to make sure everything is up to our standards, launching new services and improving on what we have.
What do you like most about your job?
I probably gotta say the company and the people I work with. It feels great working with some of the best minds in the online marketing field. Plus I learned so much about leadership and how to manage a team. I just love it at W2R!
What motivates you to wake up and go to work?
For me, it’s knowing that my work is helping so many people. Be it local business clients or agencies who help other local business clients.
How has Web 20 helped you in your career development?
My number one thing that has helped me a lot was the management stuff. I learned so much about leadership and management, stuff I didn’t know about until I started working at W2R.
If you could switch your job with anyone else within Web 20, whose job would you want?
No one 🙂 I love my job, my department and the people I work with.
What advice do you have for prospective Web 20 candidates?
Take some time for self reflection on factors such as where you are, where you want to head, and what matters to you in your career.
What drew you to Web 20 originally? And how has Web 20 changed since?
As I said, I worked with W2R even before joining the company so I already knew the company and some of the members and that is what made me apply for the job. W2R has grown so much from the time I first started working with. It has grown so much on both members and services.

I would have to say that the 2 biggest and most important things are freedom and knowledge.
