The Digital Marketing Services department at The Oklahoma Publishing Company has hired Ruth Burr Reedy to lead its search engine optimization team.
“Bringing Ruth Burr Reedy on board is a huge win for OPUBCO Digital Marketing Services,” said David Christopher, senior inbound marketing manager. “She’s one of the most highly regarded search engine optimization experts in the country and speaks at conferences around the world. Ruth is the perfect addition to our organization and to the Oklahoma digital marketing community, a real heavy-hitter, and we’re all thrilled to be working alongside her.”
Burr Reedy, the company’s new SEO manager, has eight years of SEO and digital marketing experience working for industry giants such as MOZ, formerly known as SEOmoz, in Seattle. She has spoken at industry events all over the world including Pubcon and the SMX conference series. Burr Reedy worked most recently as an independent SEO and online marketing consultant and speaker.
“I’m so excited to be joining the amazing OPUBCO team,” Burr Reedy said. “I’ve been a fan of their work from afar since before I moved to Oklahoma, and I’m really happy that the timing worked out on both ends for me to come aboard.”
Burr Reedy said advanced SEO has become a business strategy that cannot be ignored.
“I love doing SEO because it can make such a huge difference for a business, whether it’s a small local business or a huge national brand,” she said. “I love talking to people about all of the different ways they can use digital marketing to help their businesses. There are a lot of spammers and shady SEO practices out there, but I think that real SEO, done well, can make the Internet a better place.”
Burr Reedy also will appear at this year’s Confluence Digital Creativity Conference on Sept. 6 at the Lyric Theater in Oklahoma City’s Plaza District.
Digital Marketing Services is the fastest growing division of OPUBCO, which publishes The Oklahoman and NewsOK.com and is Oklahoma’s largest SEO and digital marketing service provider.
