Wil Stokes

Key skills
Technical SEO, keyword research and optimisation, website performance, Pay Per Click


Wil joined C4B Media as our SEO Manager in 2017, and is the real deal when it comes to getting our clients’ websites performing to their full potential.

Earlier in his career, Wil started out as a Web Developer, gaining valuable knowledge and skills in front end  development (HTML, CSS, PHP and Javascript), but quickly  found himself drawn towards the dark arts of SEO, though (of course) always wearing a “white hat”.

Today he specialises in the more technical elements of SEO including website performance, structure and coding, and keyword optimisation. Wil also manages our client PPC campaigns and enjoys keeping up with (and second guessing!) the constantly changing algorithms of Google’s search engine.

When not in the office, Wil can be found walking his dogs or riding his bike down mountains and bike parks across the UK, the Alps and the Pyrenees.

Amber is a typical English Springer. In the fields, she’s constantly busy, picking up every scent and sound and chasing anything that moves; inside, she sleeps and dreams blissfully, always managing to find the warmest spot in the room.
