Richard Young has been heavily involved in SEO and website management since starting and completing his PhD in Chemical Engineering in 1998. Upon qualifying he went to work in the information services department of Birmingham University working on usability and web application design.

After leaving Birmingham University Richard has been working exclusively in web development, SEO, usability and general web and business on a consulting and contract basis whilst engaged in private web and offline projects.

The unusual name came from a practical joke whilst doing his PhD where pranks were played on a regular basis and during a username suggestion exercise Richard filled out a long web form but a colleague changed the name to ukgimp. The name was considered a laugh so was used.

If you would like to work with Richard please see what areas he covers and then contact him.
