I’m Gemma, the fingers and lens behind the popular travel website, Two Scots Abroad.

My husband, Craig, and I live and work in Scotland. I’m actually a former high school teacher so having the opportunity to marry blogging and teaching here at Make Traffic Happen is a win-win for all of us. I love to share knowledge and support other people in their success. It’s the socialist Scot in me!

How did I get here? After an 18-month career break to travel the Americas and Europe it was back to full time work and my traffic was pretty stagnant. I was sick of slaving away at the keys and seeing little return but then I got my SEO game on and tripled my page views in less than six months.

It wasn’t magic. I created a strategy, followed a procedure and these are the techniques Laura and I want to share with you today.

I’m Laura, the insatiable food and wine lover behind the websites, Savored Journeys, Savored Sips, A Food Lover’s Kitchen and Delightfully Low Carb.

My husband, Nick and I live in London and we spend a lot of our time traveling around Europe, discovering great food and drink. I started my websites as a way to earn a full-time income without being stuck to a specific location, so I could live anywhere in the world and do what I love everyday. Somewhere along the way, I got tired of begging for traffic on social media, so I decided to stop ignoring SEO and put a real effort into learning everything I could about bringing sustainable traffic to my site through organic search. I built an SEO strategy that worked like a charm on my site, and turned it into an ebook bundle, SEO the Easy Way and Revive Old Content, so you can do what I did and find success as a blogger.
