Nathan Gotch

I’m Nathan Gotch, an SEO professional with over ten years of experience. I’m also the founder of the #1 SEO training program in the world, Gotch SEO Academy. And I’m the author of The SEO Entrepreneur. My SEO expertise is featured on Semrush, Ahrefs, and Search Engine Journal.

Here’s my story:

2011 – Failed at making money online through paid surveys, writing articles, and trying to sell my college books.

2012 – Created my first website, TheUlitmatePitcher.com, which led me to discover SEO. I then used SEO to grow the website’s organic traffic and sold it to a former MLB pitcher.

2012 – 2013 – Created many successful, random websites about under-counter ice maker reviews, Bowflex reviews, TRX reviews, being an ectomorph, and even cardio training.

2013 – Applied for every SEO position in St Louis and got one interview (I didn’t get the job). So I founded GotchSEO.com with a credit card that had a $500 limit instead.

2014 – Made over $100,000 profit from my SEO agency. Created my first product, the “Anchor Text Bible.”

2016 – Launched Gotch SEO Academy v1.0, now considered one of the best SEO training programs in the world. And broke 1 million pageviews on GotchSEO.com

2017 – Gotch SEO becomes a 7-figure business.

2018 – Quit my agency to focus 100% of my effort on Gotch SEO Academy.

2019 – Earned six figures in one week with Gotch SEO Academy.

2020 – Created a random burger video that got 500,000 views on TikTok.

2021 – Reached 1,000,000 views on YouTube. Launched Gotch SEO Academy v.3.0, a rebuilt program that has weekly coaching. Also, published a free SEO training series on Semrush’s YouTube channel that’s generated over 780,000 organic views.

2022 – Reached 50,000 subscribers and 2,000,000 views on YouTube. Reached 10,000 followers on Twitter and 20,000 on LinkedIn.
