About

Shakunjain.com is a blog that covers major topics in SEO & Digital Marketing. This includes the latest industry trends, their future implications, and my opinions on the most relevant technologies.

Who am I?

My name is, you guessed it, Shakun Jain and I’m an SEO Specialist at Vagaro Inc. I started out as an SEO Analyst at Salsa Vida. I’ve been a marketer for about 3 years so you could say that I am relatively new to the industry.

Irrelevant of my level of experience, I find it crucial to keep up with news and articles about SEO and related fields in order to catch up with experienced marketers. I like to discuss my findings here, so if you’re new to the field or simply want to find out more about current trends in digital marketing, you’ve come to the right place.

Some of my current endeavors include optimizing articles on Vagaro’s Blog as well as webpages on Vagaro’s Marketplace.

Background

I was born in Schwerin, Germany and raised in Mussoorie, India. After graduating from high school, I went to the Bay Area and received my Bachelor’s degree in International Business from San Jose State University. After 3 months in Germany, I returned to San Jose State and earned my MBA degree.

My initial technological knowledge stemmed mostly from the coding related courses I completed at NIIT (the National Institute of Information Technology in India) in 2013, and the first year I spent at San Jose State as a Digital Media Arts major before I decided to become a marketer.

Fun fact: As a digital media artist, I became obsessed with designing the perfect website user interface from scratch. Themes would have made things too easy. SEO was the least of my concerns and the code ran on for miles. Had I published it, I probably would have been the owner of one of the least SEO friendly websites that existed.

Bonus Info

Some things I’m currently most passionate about include physical fitness, salsa dancing, and of course, SEO.
