Tye attended The University of Alabama to earn his degrees in political science and computer science. He learned the art of SEO while recovering from injuries from the Tuscaloosa tornado in 2011 during his senior year at UA. Since then, he has focused all of his attention on SEO and never looked back. 

Tye has now specialized in SEO for 10+ years. He started the SEO Department at a local agency and built it to a team of eight members, consisting of Senior SEO Analysts, SEO Analysts, Link Builders, and a content writer. 

He created all SEO strategies for the agency’s editorial, trucking jobs and diesel mechanic websites. His success with these internal projects opened the door for him to begin SEO Consulting for third-party clients.

Increased organic traffic on all types of websites from e-commerce, editorial, agency, real estate and apartment websites.

His efforts led to increased organic traffic over 90% in less than 7 months on an already successful e-commerce website by taking it to the top position for many highly valuable and extremely competitive keywords and keyword groups.

Tye is the proud owner of a French bulldog, YaYa, the cutest dog in the world. Seriously. He loves the beach and golf...and golfing near the beach, naturally.

Here is what Tye had to say about working with The Nine:

"I love working at the Nine for many reasons but two really stick out. First is the talent level from top to bottom. Second, is the way the company is structured. I have never been at a company where I felt so good about where the company is and is headed."

Tye is a SEO rockstar, and we are thrilled to have him on our team!
