    Dan is an exceptional professional, with great knowledge on technology, developing, SEO management and all things digital. In his role as a SEO Manager, Dan repeatedly showed dedication, competency and eagerness to always do more. His ambition, talent and easy-going personality have made him a valuable team member, and an amazing colleague to work with. Dan has an extensive grasp of organisations as a whole, and identifies projects and campaigns, which could benefit from his creativity and substantial technological practice. During my time at Groupon, Dan has been my point of reference in a number of areas, as his knowledge of the digital scene and trends made him an expert in the field. I would strongly recommend Dan, and would love to work with him again in the future.

    Dan is a very talented and experienced individual with a huge knowledge base regarding the SEO industry. His advice is invaluable and delivery method was just beyond belief. Certainly a guy worth having as part of your team.


  • Thi-Sophani Thach × Junior SEO Marketing Manager × Groupon

    The SEO world could not have been more fascinating and fun if we did not have Dan Clarke in our team. Because we never have enough to learn, Dan is the right person to discuss about SEO. He has a great knowledge and experience and he's always helpful to answer questions. He has as much professional qualities (he's serious and know how to react for each situation and issues) as human qualities (he's able to motivate people to work in a good mood and knows how to make us comfortable). I am sure he will go very far... I would be very proud to know the 2010-2020s SEO guru.


  • Farooq Bhatti × Senior Consultant × Business Setup Consultants

    Dan is a true expert within his field, spend 5 minutes with him and you will know without a doubt that he is a master at SEO. You will find very few experts such as him in the GCC region who truly have an in depth understanding of what they are talking about.
