Lily Ray joined Path Interactive in 2018 as the Director of SEO, providing strategic leadership for the agency’s SEO client programs. Born into a family of software engineers, web developers, and technical writers, Lily brings a strong technical background, performance-driven habits, and forward-thinking creativity to all programs she oversees. Lily began her SEO career in 2010 in a fast-paced start-up environment and moved quickly into the agency world, where she helped grow and establish a SEO department that delivered high impact work for a fast-growing list of notable clients, including Fortune 500 companies. Lily has worked across a variety of verticals with a focus on retail, ecommerce, b2b and Amazon SEO.
Although she once dabbled in the world of black-hat SEO before Google launched its Penguin algorithm update, Lily has since become an evangelist for all things white-hat, with a passion for all things related to E-A-T. Lily is currently emphasizing the role that E-A-T plays across all client verticals, and helping websites affected by recent algorithm updates improve their perceived trust and authority to provide real value to users and search engines alike.
