Christian Rudolf is 45 years old lives in Stockholm, Sweden and has been in the SEO game since 2005. In fact, he was in the online poker business, which as most of you know, is super competitive and highly skilled. Now he runs his own SEO and content agency in Sweden, contributes content on his own blog and on social media and has befriended a ton of SEOs in the industry.
Christian has emailed me tips several times in the past year or so around new developments in Google. He is always looking to get the word out about what works in SEO and what does not. He is super friendly, super caring and always looking to help a friend or colleague.

Favorite thing about the SEM community? I could never have become what I am if people were not sharing. For a long time, I was a member of SEObook.com and this reading list on Twitter has been with me for several years. Unfortunately, several people on that list have left SEO. I also remember my first conference in the US. It blew my mind what people shared and the experienced they had.
One piece of advice to the SEOs out there? Every business is a people business. Knowledge about how people work is equally important as knowledge about an algorithm. To achieve success no matter what you do, in most cases, you have to work with others or through others.
Favorite things in general? My favorite pass time is a pug called Malte the Magnet(since he gets so much attention) https://www.facebook.com/malte.magnet/. I am also into monetary policy. Central banking has lots of similarities with SEO.
What you want to be known for in the SEO space? Honesty is very important. Without honesty, there is no change for anyone. I also believe listening to others is important. When you listen you can more easily understand someone else and help them or learn from them
