A bit about Jon...

So what does your job actually involve? Tell us all about it!

It's my job to help people find our websites via search engines (e.g. Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.). This involves making sure our site is optimised from a technical and content perspective so that we have a site that search engines can understand and content that is relevant to our audience.

What's the most unique part of your role at The Student Room?

There aren't many sites like ours out there. We have so much information that is produced in-house and by our users. Making sure students and search engines can find all this great content provides a unique challenge from a search perspective.

What do you find most exciting about working in the student & youth market?

The student community is so passionate, which is fantastic to see. Being able to help provide a space for discussion and advice for students at such a critical point in their lives is a very rewarding experience.

If you could give your student self one piece of advice what would it be?

You should have learnt to code earlier you idiot! It would have saved your old-man brain so many headaches.
