About Rob

Affordable Web is a modern service founded by someone who has been online ever since the Internet was invented:

Hi there! My name is Rob Skelton and I am your web site expert and concierge (I don’t claim to know everything, but I can always help)

…a few things about me:

  • I started building my own websites in the 1990s, and several became mega-popular.
  • Then I worked for Google for a while, helping their search quality team and starring at Google Answers.
  • I launched FreeCycle in Australia, and looked after it while membership reached 100,000 Aussies.
  • I am an active “domainer” with a few thousand domain names in my portfolio.
  • Co-founded an affiliate marketing business that dominated the pay-per-click space. It was based in Oklahoma but I stayed in Australia.
  • Based in Ballarat, but servicing all of Australia (and the whole English-speaking world)

While we have numerous staff that handle graphics, templates and written content, I am your first point of contact, and I sign off on every order.
