A Different Kind Of Company
Huckabuy is the brainchild of Geoff Atkinson, the former Senior Vice President of Marketing and Analytics at Overstock.com. Of all the things Geoff did at Overstock, SEO always had a special place in his heart. The return on investment for SEO was far beyond any channel. After Overstock, Geoff applied his learnings to build a product that could share his unique intellectual property at scale with companies of any size, all over the world.
A Different Approach To SEO
The problem hasn’t changed much since Geoff’s run at Overstock. SEO is still fundamentally a technical issue, and agencies and consultants continue to miss the mark on what moves the needle most in this channel.
What has changed is Google’s publicity about the solutions. They’ve been clear about what they want from a technical SEO standpoint: structured data for everyone and dynamic rendering for sites that Search Bots have difficulty crawling and indexing.
Agencies and consultants aren’t embracing these initiatives because they lack the technical chops to build products and services around them. This industry gap has created an opportunity for Huckabuy — because if you aren’t listening to Google, you are doing it wrong.
We believe it is critical to fall in line with these initiatives and to be prepared to implement whatever Google endorses next. It’s the foundation not just for sound technical SEO, but for SEO in general.
A Different Approach To Software
Google moves at a rapid pace, constantly improving its algorithms. The problem with most search engine optimizers is they are purely reactionary – chasing after updates and making changes based on guessing and checking. Huckabuy is committed to a proactive approach, watching Google’s trajectory and planning ahead for the future. Huckabuy has thousands of conversations with Google each day (through structured data) so we know when things change. We react in real-time by altering your website’s structured data based on our findings.

A Different Kind Of Name
Huckabuy is named after Geoff Atkinson’s nephew, Huck.
While Geoff was creating our first product, he went to visit family in Boston. While he was sitting on his sister’s couch, searching for a name to call his new company, Huck walked in, and his mother called him “Huckabuy,” a nickname she often used.
A lightbulb went off for Geoff, who purchased the domain huckabuy.com immediately. After extensive market research and a slew of other proposed names, it was clear that Huckabuy was a fan favorite.
