Nyagoslav Zhekov's Summary

Nyagoslav Zhekov is a 25-old Bulgarian, fresh graduate from the University of Economics – Varna. His interest in marketing, and online marketing in particular, has been growing throughout his higher education. Thus, it comes as no surprise that search engine optimization soon became his passion. He started using his knowledge professionally during a 3-month internship in the Osaka-based company Label Bank, during 2010. Upon return to his homeland he did not waste any time and became an SEO in a company specializing in Google Places and local SEO. However, he soon realized that his abilities and genuine interest in the field were an excellent incentive to co-found his own company, NGS Marketing. Apart from work, Nyagoslav loves spending time with his girlfriend Jenny, traveling with her, or playing (European) football with his teammates from Absolut AFC (Varna).

Nyagoslav is a guest author for SearchEnginePeople.com. His articles have been published on blogs such as Blumenthals.com and Expand2Web.com. He has been cited on SearchEngineLand.com, DavidMihm.com, LocalSEOGuide.com, SearchEngineRoundtable.com, and many others.

Nyagoslav’s biggest achievement in his professional career up to now was his speaking invitation for SMX West 2012. He presented on the internal clustering system of Google Places as part of the session “Solving Problems and Seeing Success in Google Places”.

Nyagoslav frequently answers questions on the Google and Your Business Forum (where he is a Top Contributor) and Quora.
