Helping manufacturing companies rank higher in Google and Bing, through SEO and brilliantly designed and developed WordPress websites.

Hi, I'm John.

In a previous life, I worked a blue-collar life. In 2009, I started learning web design and web development. In 2012, I started my own company, Lockedown Design, and I've been working for myself ever since.

After five years of being primarily a theme developer with a knack for SEO, in 2017, I narrowed my focus to work specifically as an SEO consultant. I work with established businesses with at least 1mm in annual revenue who can benefit from more inbound leads and increased market share. Manufacturing companies are my specialty.

I blog regularly about SEO at, as well as WordPress, marketing, design, and development.
