Ever since daybreak I have had a penchant for the gaming world and with a primary focus on what Nintendo does. They have always been at the forefront of innovations and the like in the field of gaming.

Reporting in the Netherlands in the field of Nintendo was not as good as I wanted it to be. That is why I decided to set up my own medium, Nintendo Reporters.

Work Experience

LanthopusX in VeghelLanthopusX

[icon name=”clock-o”] Period: September 2017

[icon name=”user”] Function: Technical SEO Specialist

The core of who we are is that LanthopusX is more than an IT company. It is a company of people, in which it is all about the role you play in a team. Every person is different and the way LanthopusX also classifies functions. LanthopusX believes that the power of every company lies in the variety of people instead of looking for all of the same.

Within LanthopusX I work on all aspects of SEO, but I am also responsible for the revision of the hosting, research on various new techniques and knowledge sharing.

Edit: September 2018
Due to a number of factors, LanthopusX and I said goodbye to each other since my contract was not getting extended.

Edit: February 2019
lanthopus-resources-logoIn February 2019 I again spoke with the Lanthopus group and after talking things through I signed again with Lanthopus Resources (sister company of LanthopusX). In terms of role, this was directly comparable with my position within LanthopusX.

Edit: October 2019
Unfortunately, the problems that originally let to the break between myself and Lanthopus have still not been resolved. That is why we both have decided that I will leave Lanthopus Resources at the end of November.

A second company called Start-Apps was founded within Garcon4U because, in addition to developing the Garcon4U application, other projects were also being facilitated for third parties.

[icon name=”clock-o”] Period: 2005 – 2006

[icon name=”star”] Special

Stopped in January 2006 for the following reasons:

  • Exemption for almost all subjects.
  • No possibility of direct transfer to second year.
  • No possibility of an accelerated completion of year 1.
  • No possibility for heavier teaching materials.

Therefore, in consultation with my parents, I went looking for a job, partly because other interests would mean that I had to move to North Holland, which was something I did not want to do.

[icon name=”search-plus”] WSO / SEO

In addition, I am extremely adept when it comes to WSO (Web Site Optimization) and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and I also feel a fish in the water when it comes to things like;

  • Google Analytics
  • Google Search Console
  • Google Keywords
  • Google Insights
  • ySlow
  • GTMetrics
  • Open Graph
  • Schema.org
  • Microdata / rich snippets (JSON-ld, RDFa (lite), microformats)
    and then with a whole lot of external tools (for example; Screaming Frog, SERanking, SEMRush, Majestic SEO, Deadlink checker, Seobility, Wild Shark, Open Site Explorer etc.)

It is good to indicate that you should not be wrong with SEA (Search Engine Advertising) where it is much more focused on keyword analysis, CTR, bids etc. I know the basics of … but that work can better accommodate you with someone whose heart is there.
