He has been a speaker about the YouTube algorithm worldwide, including both the VidCon Amsterdam and VidCon Australia 2017 events, as well as several private seminars and workshops for companies like German funk, or Danish beauty-brand MATAS.

With more than 10 years’ experience in his field, Philip now specializes in YouTube search engine optimization, recognizing the need to understand and augment SEO across YouTube, analytical optimization of video content, deep-diving into all things “video algorithm” and more general YouTube marketing. His work focuses on analytics, visibility optimization and strategy development to increase web traffic to channels and their websites or products.

An alumni of the prestigious Danish Design School and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design – where he received his Master’s Degree – merged his experience of producing and growing YouTube channels with his interest in SEO and created the Rankify YouTube Course in 2013-2014. The course successfully taught channels to reach their full potential using practices that increase views and lead generation through an intelligent, enhanced use of SEO while being sold in 2014.

In 2018 he launched his own YouTube analytics and tracking software, called Rankify Analytics.
